How was your weekend? Did you eat anything delicious?

I feel I should go ahead and apologize to your waistlines, because this week’s features are all sweets.  Really incredibly delightful, decadent, delicious sweets.

The Texas State Fair is pretty well known for being the home of outrageous fried foods such as the Deep Fried Twinkie.  Thanks to This Silly Girl’s Life you don’t have to live in Texas to indulge in deep fried sugary goodness!! She shared a recipe for Deep Fried Twinkie Bites with us last week, and I must say, they’re pretty incredible.

This Apple Spice Cake has a secret ingredient that intrigues me.  Rose swears by it, and it certainly looks and sounds wonderful.  You’ll have to pop over to What Rose Knows to find out what that secret ingredient is.

There’s something about chimichangas that just make me happy.  I don’t know if it’s that the name is so fun to say, or that you can pretty much make them any flavor you crave and they’re always delicious…  I’m completely in love with this Pumpkin Apple Chimichanga from Home Cooking Memories!
