Classic Soft Pretzel

Classic Soft Pretzel

Hello hello! It’s me. Stephen. Long time no see, I know I know. I’m not going to lie, it was a busy summer and I feel like I’ve barely cooked in ages. Hopefully now that autumn is fast approaching, I’ll be able to spend more time in the kitchen! So… My mom has been on...
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...
Blueberry & White Chocolate Cookies

Blueberry & White Chocolate Cookies

Two cookie recipes in a week? It seriously must be Christmastime. It’s a time of year closely associated with friends and family, laughter and good cheer, cozy fires and warm sweaters. We all love it…but it’s all a facade hiding a dark truth. Yes, I’m about to reveal the true meaning of Christmas: ’tis the...
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...
Feta, Sun-Dried Tomato, Olive Crackers

Feta, Sun-Dried Tomato, Olive Crackers

I can’t believe it’s already time for Easter. When I was in college, Easter never snuck up on me (hello, spring break!) but it’s this weekend and I have no idea where the year flown off to. The only thing keeping me sane in this crazy time warp is that the weather is finally warming...
Fruit n' Oat Bars

Fruit n’ Oat Bars

Oh man, do I love granola bars. Throughout my entire life, we’ve always had at least 3 different kinds of granola bars in the house. My mom would toss me a bar or two to stash in my backpack, car, or jacket pocket whenever I’d leave the house. It doesn’t even matter what flavor. I...
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...
Funfetti Bread Pudding

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 with a bread...
Whole Wheat Cherry Almond Scones

Whole Wheat Cherry Almond Scones

Okay, so my mom may or may not be addicted to cherries. I’ll neither confirm or deny her addiction, but lets just say that it’s a fruit we ALWAYS have in our fridge. The same goes for almonds – she adds them to smoothies, salads, and pretty much everything. I don’t get it…but tis the...
Pumpkin Squares

Pumpkin Squares

‘Tis the season for pumpkins! That’s right, Thanksgiving is next week…it’s time to get your rear into gear and whip up some pumpkin treats! Houses start to smell amazing, families come together, and bellies begin to be filled. I love this time of year! Love it! In general I’m not a big sweets guy, but...
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. HOWEVER, I thought...
