Harry Potter Pumpkin Pasties

Harry Potter Pumpkin Pasties

You know when you zonk out in front of the TV and watch something that you’ve seen thousands of times already? Well, this past weekend there was a Harry Potter marathon on and, as usual, it sucked me in. I’ve been a HUGE Potter fan since the books first came out. As...
Rosemary Flatbread with Sea Salt & Olive Oil

Rosemary Flatbread with Sea Salt & Olive Oil

Oh flatbread. Why am I so addicted to thee? Why must your delicious crunch tempt me daily? Sigh… Just a few weeks ago I wrote about my newest favorite cracker flatbread from Townhouse (Flatbread Crisps w Sea Salt & Olive Oil), but now, here’s a recipe to whip up these delicious snacks...
Perfect Peanut Butter Cookies

Perfect Peanut Butter Cookies

Oh yes…peanut butter. So good, so creamy, so comforting. We always have a jar (or five) lurking about our pantry, so peanut butter has been a major food trend in my life. It’s great straight out of the jar but is also a very versatile ingredient to cook/bake with. My brother was...
Flourless Chocolate Cake

Flourless Chocolate Cake

Every chocolate cake recipe I come across always uses bittersweet or baking chocolate (which has no sugar added). Although those recipes turn out great, they usually require me to go to a store to pick up the fancy chocolate. It stinks. So I decided to come up with a chocolate cake recipe...
Zucchini Bread/Muffins

Zucchini Bread/Muffins

  Zucchini is a staple at my house, but sometimes we buy or grow too much and it starts to go bad. Since I absolutely hate wasting food (especially produce), I always like to come up with fun and tasty ways to use everything. Zucchini is a perfect product to do that....
Fudgy Rich Brownies

Fudgy Rich Brownies

You want super chocolaty brownies? How about brownies that are borderline fudge? A taste so deep that you’ll think expensive fancy dark chocolate must have been melted down to make these treats? Well, if you like all of the above, these brownies are for you! My brother and I love brownies, so...
Blueberry Lemon Thyme Scones

Blueberry Lemon Thyme Scones

So tight, airy, and fluffy – these scones are delicious. The blueberries burst in your mouth surrounded by subtly lemony thyme dough. I really love this recipe – the yogurt keeps the insides moist, while the lemon brings a brightness to every bite, and then the thyme gives it that little something...
Matzo

Matzo

My freshmen year of college, my neighbor was this really fun Jewish girl. I think her folks gave her matzo in a care package, so she offered me one when we were hanging out. I then ate the entire box in one sitting…literally. I was ADDICTED.  I’ll admit that it is kind...
Soft Granola

Soft Granola

My throat was sore this week, so I wasn’t able to have any crunchy foods due to the pain :/. Because of this sad sad fact of my life, I decided to bake a soft granola crumble that I could snack on and add to my yogurt in the morning. It has...
Cornbread

Cornbread

Tasty, crumbly, buttery cornbread can go with any meal of the day. I like to add some cheddar cheese into my batter – I feel like it keeps the cornbread moist and not too sweet while also providing that little something-something extra. Serve with a dollop of butter or a drizzle of...
Sweet Onion & Sundried Tomato Tart

Sweet Onion & Sundried Tomato Tart

We love onions every which way at my house, so why not in giant tart? The sweet onions are caramelized, which really highlights their amazing flavor. The texture of the onions contrasts with the firmer sundried tomatoes, and it’s served to you in a super flaky pastry dough. It’s really great and...
Pâte Brisée (Pastry Crust)

Pâte Brisée (Pastry Crust)

This is the standard recipe to make butter pastry crust. It’s incredibly flaky and can be used for either sweet or savory dishes (just increase the sugar for a sweet recipe). You seriously will be surprised how professional the dough comes out – just don’t over work the butter! The tiny pieces...
