Funfetti Bread Pudding

Ugh I hate when it’s cold and dreary on a day when I planned to be outside. It’s horrible and bums me out until I find something to do. The only plus side is that when I’m bored, I often come up with the coolest recipes. Like yesterday when I came up...
Healthy Cookie Dip

Healthy Cookie Dip

Do you ever get in the mood where you don’t want to do anything but sit on the couch and eat cookie dough? Well…I decided I didn’t want to work today, so like the little kid that I am, I crossed my arms and stubbornly declared that I’m not haha. So what...
Pumpkin Swirl Brownies

Pumpkin Swirl Brownies

These pumpkin swirl brownies began when I found a “brownie” recipe from Martha Stewart online and hated it. I don’t usually like to bash people, but her recipe was NOT a brownie! Oh Martha, have you gone mad? Don’t you know that a brownie is supposed to be chocolaty?! Her’s was more...
Bacon S'mores

Bacon S’mores

The look on my mom’s face when I told her about this bacon s’more recipe was of complete disgust. She even hesitantly repeated what I had just asked her to buy at the store – bacon, marshmallows, and chocolate. No mom…no, you did not mishear me! Even after bringing those ingredients home,...

Since Hurricane Sandy blacked out Halloween in NJ this year, I’ve been needing a little witchcraft and wizardy in my life. Can you guess what I “cooked” to scratch this itch? For anyone who’s read the Harry Potter series, you’ve definitely heard of this magical beverage. It’s smooth, creamy, and all the...
Nutella Cups

I came up with this candy a few years ago for my friend Amanda’s birthday. A bunch of us booked a hotel room and were planning to party all night long with drinks, food, and dancing. I didn’t know what to get her, so I thought it would be fun to put...
Blueberry Lemonade Cake Bites

Blueberry Lemonade Cake Bites

This recipe started off with a page ripped from the magazine Better Homes and Gardens. My mom brought it home and asked me to make it. So I did. And well…let’s just say I didn’t like the overly buttery cake that barley tasted like lemons. Nope, did not like that one bit....
Reese’s Rice Krispie Treats

Reese’s Rice Krispie Treats

Yesterday was my friend’s birthday, so I wanted to make her something (I’m all about food gifts). After thinking about it for a little bit, I decided to make my favorite rice krispie treats for her. But these are no ordinary rice krispies…these have Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups mixed inside and a...
Tempura Bananas with Chocolate-Coconut Drizzle

Tempura Bananas with Chocolate-Coconut Drizzle

FRIED BANANAS! Yesss! I got the idea to make tempura bananas with a chocolate-coconut sauce when I looked in the pantry and noticed I had leftover coconut from some cookies I made last year! Since I hate to waste anything, I figured I’d fry something! Think coconut fried shrimp, but with the...
Raspberry Frozen Yogurt

Raspberry Frozen Yogurt

I really wanted ice cream, but didn’t feel like going out to the store annnd I don’t have an ice cream maker…yet. After staring yearningly into the freezer for way too long, I decided to make some tasty fro-yo instead! It’s really easy to make and doesn’t require much effort (which was...
