Lemon Cheesecake with Almond Crust

Lemon Cheesecake with Almond Crust

It feels like I didn’t do anything during Memorial Day Weekend. I went to a bar with some friends and had a family cookout, but that’s it. Bleh. The weekend started off rainy, moved onto blusterous, and finally ended with sunshine. But for the most part, I was stuck inside due to New Jersey’s gloomy...
Chocolate Covered Bananas with Hazelnuts

Chocolate Covered Bananas with Hazelnuts

I think I may watch too much television. But in my defense, I don’t watch it every hour of the day…instead I flip on a show or two¬†before bed (almost always online). But even if that wasn’t the case, and I actually just zonked out in front of the TV every day, who cares? It’s...
St. Patrick's Day Krispie Treats

St. Patrick’s Day Krispie Treats

Holy crap, is St. Patty’s Day this weekend? Geez 2013 is going by fast. So today’s post is short and sweet (pun intended). Once again I’m giving the classic rice krispie treat an update. What can I say, I just love marshmallow treats. They’re fun, quick to make, and everyone loves them, so why not?...
Cinnamon Date Shake

Cinnamon Date Shake

I like the way this recipe sounds – “cinnamon date shake”. It’s cute, yeah? Anyway, I have SO many dates leftover from the Moroccan Oatmeal Cookies I made a couple weeks ago. For some reason my dad feels the need to buy everything in bulk, so we kinda have enough dates in our pantry to...
Minty White Hot Chocolate

Minty White Hot Chocolate

I know, I know…it’s no longer the dead of winter, so why am I posting about hot chocolate? Well I thought it would be fun to make some green colored foods since St. Patrick’s Day is around the corner. And if you don’t buy that excuse, then how about the fact that it’s pretty dreary...
Moroccan Oatmeal Cookies

Moroccan Oatmeal Cookies

Not sure if I’ve ever told you guys, but when I think up a fun recipe, I write it down. It doesn’t matter where I am or what I’m doing, if it could potentially be tasty, I jot it down. Usually it’s just a word or two, sometimes key ingredients; depends on how motivated I...
Sun-dried Tomato Chocolate Bark

Sun-dried Tomato Chocolate Bark

I guess I’m being lazy this week, cause Monday’s recipe only had two ingredients too. Whatever haha. Everyone’s always talking about bacon and chocolate. I mean, come on, you can’t go anywhere online without hearing about bacon and chocolate this, bacon and chocolate that. Even I’m not immune to this never-ending craze. But let’s face...
Raspberry Chocolate Pizza

Raspberry Chocolate Pizza

I dreamt this recipe up back in December, but never got around to making it until this past weekend during the snow “storm”. Last Friday my family prepared to get snowed in after hearing about a massive blizzard. As usual, the media sensationalized it into madness and of course got the forecast wrong. Needles to...
Apple & Brie Tart

Apple & Brie Tart

Okay! So totally forget to post this yesterday. It’s weird…this week has been a strange combination of being incredibly quick and excruciatingly slow at the same time. Yesterday dragged on (probably cause I started work at 6 am), so I really have no reason why blogging slipped my mind. Hopefully you guys don’t hate me...
Christmas Coal

Christmas Coal

I totally forgot to post last Friday…whoops. I hope you guys forgive me! So before you guys begin to think I’m more of a Scrooge than I actually am, this isn’t real coal! Don’t worry, I wouldn’t actually give someone a cold rock for Christmas (well…depends on the person haha). See, my friends and I...
Funnel Cake

Funnel Cake

For me, holidays are nice…but often stressful. Although it’s a time of amazing food, fun parties with friends, and great music, it’s also a time where I’m forced to hang out with frustrating relatives, attend obligatory events, and take a whole lot of work on my plate. I also end up self reflecting and comparing...
Reese's Pretzel Cookies

Reese’s Pretzel Cookies

Every year my family goes cookie crazy around Christmas. I’m not kidding…we give Cookie Monster a run for his money by baking hundreds of cookies for just the four of us. Granted a few are given to our grandparents and served at holiday parties, but for the most part they’re alllllll ours. Yup. And we...
