All My Favorite Things In One Dessert?!

A little while back a staff member of mine directed me to Someone Left the Cake Out In The Rain. A fabulous blog which I spent a decent amount of time reading through – mostly because I stumbled upon a recipe for Peanut Butter Whoopie pies with Nutella Cream Cheese Frosting and died of happiness … Continue reading

Happy July 4th to All!

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend! I spent mine at an incredible, secluded cabin in the Adirondacks with three of my favorite ladies in the whole world (though we were missing a few others, sadly). We spent most of the weekend learning that cooking ANYTHING over an open fire pit is pretty … Continue reading

Breakfast Pastries with Homemade Jam

So, now that you have a good 4 cups (at least) of strawberry rhubarb jam all to yourself after giving some away to your beloved friends and family, what do you do with it? I’d been wanting to make my own breakfast pastries (I’d call them pop tarts, but…they’re so much better and more real) … Continue reading

A Taste of N’awlins

Last week I had the absolute pleasure and honor of being a bridesmaid in my good friend La Divina’s wedding in New Orleans! I haven’t been to the south much, and I’d certainly never been to N’awlins – the most European city in the United States, according to many of my friends. I was beyond … Continue reading

And we’re back! Start the Summer off with Strawberry Rhubarb Jam!

Hello lovely foodies, friends, and readers! I’m sorry I’ve been away from all of this for so long – the good news is that I’ve been busy doing other things like performing! I have still been cooking and slowly working on changing my habits. Much as I love Julia Child, she hasn’t been doing great … Continue reading

Birthday Cake is the Best Kind of Cake

As we all are aware = ). The Boy asked for a plain vanilla cake, layered, with chocolate cake and I was happy to oblige after pulling through hundreds of recipes, most of which were Guinness stout cakes with Bailey’s frosting thanks to the proximity of St. Paddy’s day to his birthday. I found a … Continue reading

Birthday Boy’s Shepherd’s Pie!

Ok, to be completely correct, this was a Cottage Pie as it was made with beef…and being of Scottish background I need to be correct about these things! This past Wednesday was The Boy’s birthday and all he wanted was his favorite dinner and a cake. Easy peasy! And boy did we luck out with … Continue reading

Gluten Free (and AWESOME) Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake

So I’ve been seeing recipes for chocolate cakes with this specific gluten-free “secret” ingredient for a while and have been extremely curious. Girls’ night and Abbabee’s birthday prompted the need for a layer cake (plus my own itching to make one and get back in the kitchen – as you can see, I’ve been super … Continue reading

On a fait du Creme Brulee!

Originally the Boy and I had decided to go out for dinner and come home to make a romantic Valentine’s dessert at home…but after a delicious and filling meal at Daba, we couldn’t bare the thought of eating more. So we exchanged gifts and played a short round of Scrabble using only lovey words. You … Continue reading

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

I wanted to have an extra little surprise for the Boy on Valentine’s Day along with the two other little gifts I’d gotten him, so during my baking frenzy I found this recipe for cookie dough truffles. The Boy and I are both chocolate chip cookie fanatics and chocolate fiends, so I thought “what could … Continue reading
