Do you have an iPad? (Or should I say, does your kid have one? *snort* Get it? Because everyone who has an iPad really only uses it for their kids to play video games. Hey, I’m not judging…we do the same thing.)

However, I do use mine. It’s an awesome portable device that has accompanied me to the dance class waiting room, the gymnastics waiting room, the park…the um…back yard. I catch up on my favorite blogs, surf Pinterest and FoodGawker, and sometimes even play a game or two myself.

A new recipe blog application was recently released, specifically for iPad. It’s called FoodGazer, and it’s getting some great reviews.

It’s FREE (yay! We love free…), allows you to search for ingredients, save recipes as favorites, and is currently updated every evening. Features that are in the works are the ability to search by category, and follow your favorite food blogger (me, right? *wink*) They’re also working on an iPhone version.

Now, with all the food porn sites already available to us, do we really need another one? Weeelllll, I thought the exact same thing when Pinterest came along, and we all know how much I love that space.

Can you ever really get tired of looking at pretty chocolate cake, anyway? OR cookie dough blended with pecans and toffee bits, then stuffed with Rolos. Really?

These are my ever popular Praline Crunch Bars with a few twists. Think they look good on your computer screen? Imagine how good they taste. Mmm hm.

Praline Rolo Cups
Makes 30
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes

• 1 (18 ounce) roll refrigerated sugar cookie dough
• 1/2 cup milk chocolate toffee bits
• 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
• 30 Rolos

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Break up cookie dough and place in a large resealable plastic bag along with the toffee pieces and the pecans. Knead to combine. Measure scant tablespoons of the dough and roll into balls.

Drop balls into a mini-muffin tin (no need to flatten.) Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. (They’ll puff up and look like they’re going to overflow, but they’ll sink in after removing from the heat.)

Remove from oven and immediately press a Rolo into each center. Cool for 30-60 seconds and push in edges of the cookie slightly if desired, but not necessary. Carefully remove from pan and enjoy!

Wow this looks great. Do you think that these would taste good with other types of cookies? I’d imagine you might have to tweak the cooking time, though, right?

I’m sure they would taste good, but if you used something other than an 18 ounce log of refrigerated dough, the ratios, and yes, the cooking time could vary.

This will be great for kiddie parties or even picnics. I love the surprise Rolo in the middle…Hope everyone enjoys the weekend! Thanks for sharing!

The medical school class the year below me got iPads as part of their tuition (apparently it’s cheaper to just get everyone an iPad to download the powerpoint presentations than it is to print them for every student every day). And I would have gotten one FOR FREE since it would have been covered in my stipend. But I was a year too late. SUCH A BUMMER.

I would have foodgazed these. For sure.

I love caramel and Rolos are probably my favorite candies {maybe Sugar Daddy’s}. I’ve been wondering why Rolos get the back seat to Kisses or Peanut Butter Cups when it comes to stuffing them in baked goods.

These look yummy!

My entire Super Bowl spread is going to be a Very Culinary production, including these! If it turns out I’ll photograph it. ;-) But I may just eat it all.

I have sugar cookie dough that I bought for something else and never made (ahem). YES!! These will be made immediately!

And, for the record, I do NOT have an iPad. I WANT an iPad, desperately. But my loving husband surprised me with a Kindle Fire for xmas, which I’m really quite grateful for, however don’t tell him that I still have fierce iPad envy. I will live vicariously through you until my Fire *accidentally* gets left behind in the donation pile ;-)
