Gooey Chocolate Caramel Tart


'Ello, gov'nah! (sorry, I couldn't resist). My name is Hayley and I write the blog The Domestic Rebel. I believe in cake mix, overdosing on sprinkles, and wearing tutus with combat boots. Also, I love anything that's awesome, which is why I am great friends with Lisa! I met Lisa through this crazy world of blogging, and since then, we've become great bloggy buddies. Even though she lives across the pond (unfairly thousands of miles away from California where I live), I have this amazing ability to be able to Imag-O-Taste her desserts. What is Imag-O-Taste, you ask? It's this thing, … [Read more...]

When did that happen? Why has it gone too fast? To be honest, and I don't know why, things have been epically busy for me since Christmas. As we all did, I took time out from blogging over the Christmas and New Year … [Read more...]

Monster Cookies


Monster Cookies - Marshmallow Fluff Based! Don't you just hate it when you're gearing up to make/bake something and you know that you have the ingredients in. Then comes the time where you put your thoughts and efforts into action only to find that 1 or more of the ingredients you knew you had in.. well, isn't in! I knew for a fact we had crunchy peanut butter in. Not only 1, but I knew there were 2 jars of it. The giant man-baby doesn't like PB so I'm guessing it met its death by him. I also knew I replenished the bicarbonate of soda (baking soda) too. And I knew that when I last ran out … [Read more...]
