Blackberry Clafouti

Blackberry Clafouti

Clafouti patooti footi. It’s time for a French dessert recipe, everyone! The Northeast has experienced frigid temperatures and record snow falls this year. It’s driving me up the wall. On the news I heard there is even something called “snow rage”. Snow rage? Like….really? I’m a bit skeptical that it’s an actual thing, but the way...
Snowball Truffles (White Chocolate Coconut Truffles)

Snowball Truffles (White Chocolate Coconut Truffles)

Merry (belated) Christmas everybody! This year, my family had more than 20 guests over on Christmas Eve to celebrate the holiday. With all those different personalities, it definitely borderlined on madness. Lets just say that we were LOUD. There were tears, cheers, and, in all honesty, probably some secretive jeers. Welcome to the family gatherings,...
Molasses Crinkles

Molasses Crinkles

So the other day the printer in my office mysteriously went off, quickly printing off several copies of a molasses crinkles recipe. The office manager went around, asking each of us if we had printed the sheets, but no one claimed them. It was so random. After a couple hours of pointing figures and conspiracy...
Banana Oat Bread

Banana Oat Bread

Lately it seems like every Sunday morning I’ve been making banana bread. Either I’m Betty Crocker reincarnated or I bought way too many bananas that ended up going bad. Considering I keep forgetting to bring one to work when I leave in the morning, I can safely say that it’s the latter. But you know...
Pumpkin Mousse Parfait

Pumpkin Mousse Parfait

Earlier this week I mentioned how my folks and I went pumpkin picking. The same day I delivered a few apples and a perfectly round pumpkin to my grandma’s house. All those fall goodies totally made her day! Grandparents are so cool. Anyway, we were talking about food and ended up on the topic of...
Caramel Apple Bread Pudding

Caramel Apple Bread Pudding

‘Tis apple season. You can literally feel it in the autumn air. There’s a mix of crispness and warmth…which is coincidentally a great combo for fall food. In fact, everything I’ve been cooking lately has included at least one apple. Seasonal fruit is just so darn tasty! I have a few recipes up my sleeve...
Drunken Date Bars (with nuts)

Drunken Date Bars (with nuts)

I totally laughed out loud when I came up with the name of this recipe. Drunken date bars. With nuts. Too awesome for words. Anywaayy (getting my mind out of the gutter) – it’s important to note that these bars are tasty, healthy, and definitely provide a slight buzz for an after dinner treat (or...
Oreo Cookie Butter (Spreadable Oreos)

Oreo Cookie Butter (Spreadable Oreos)

I have something to confess: I gotz cookies on me mind! Ever since I wrote about cookie butter at the end of July, I can’t get the concept out of my head…or mouth. I literally want to slather everything with a delicious dessert dip. But it’s not only the spreadable variety that’s consuming my every thought. There...
Peach and Plum Puffed Pastry Napoleons

Peach and Plum Puffed Pastry Napoleons

I’ve always thought that true summertime desserts were hard to find. Often they are heavy, super sweet, and don’t really blend well with the light and fresh feeling of the season. Don’t get me wrong, I love pigging out, but why can’t dessert FEEL like summer? Well, with this recipe it can. Last year my mom ate...
White Chocolate Strawberry Cookies

White Chocolate Strawberry Cookies

Omg. THIS recipe. I came up with this white chocolate strawberry cookie recipe last summer and after my dad tried one, he practically forced me to make batch after batch. Continuously. I’m not kidding. He would come home from work with bags of white chocolate and buckets of strawberries and be like “here”. Addicted? I’d...
Raspberry Lemonade Ice Pops

Raspberry Lemonade Ice Pops

Throughout my entire life, my mom has made huge pitchers of lemonade during the summer. Sometimes it’s from concentrate, other times it’s freshly squeezed, but no matter what it’s always chillin’ in our fridge. On the other hand, my dad stocks the freezer with ice pops when it’s hot outside. It’s the perfect way to...
Coconut Rice Pudding

Coconut Rice Pudding

I haven’t posted a rice pudding recipe since 2011? Wow. Craziness. And geez…let me reflect for a second. Who else agrees that I started out as a horrible photographer?  And the writing?! Haha. I guess I’ve opened up over the years. Anyway after playing with coconut on Friday, I wanted to keep the tropical trend going....
