Easter Basket Cupcakes

How did this happen? Suddenly two days until Easter?! Amazing how, especially when life is crazy, holidays can just sneak up on you. Luckily, I was slightly prepared to create a little something special because of my shopping spree at Bake it Pretty a month or so ago. Along with at least one of just [...]

Classic Cheese Fondue

I think it's a crime that fondue suffers from the whole trendy thing. Fondue is in, and then it's out. And then it's in again, and out. We're talking dipping yummy stuff into hot melty yummy other stuff – how can this ever go out of style? For me, fondue means sticky, melty, wonderful cheese [...]

Damn, They’re Good! I Try Recipes from Three of My Favorite Bloggers

 One thing an aspiring blogger quickly realizes is that there are a lot of folks out there doing an amaaaazing job at this blogging thing. Many are very well-known, and rightfully so.

Carrot Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

These Carrot Cupcakes, topped with Cream Cheese Frosting, are soooo good. And they're especially perfect for Easter. Though, I must confess, I'm not usually a carrot cake fan these days. I used to be, but something changed. When I was younger, certain foods exercised my gag reflex like, I don't know, Richard Simmons sweatin' to [...]

Rosemary Roasted Potatoes

When I was, oh, 16 or so, I heard a man wisely say to someone who was bemoaning a horrible photo of themselves: "You take a picture of a potato, you get a potato." I have no idea why I stored that little nugget away, but a few months later when my high school friend [...]

Reverse Chocolate Chip Cookies

Today seems like the perfect day for some good ol' easy and delicious drop cookies. Don't you agree? How about a big, thick, chewy, uber-chocolatey number that's like an inside-out chocolate chip cookie? Rich, yummy chocolate dough. Sweet white chocolate chips.  Oh, these things are sinful. I apologize in advance. Reverse Chocolate Chip Cookies Adapted [...]

I love simplicity. Simply Recipes, Real Simple, heck, even Simple Minds … all onto something, aren't they? When it comes to guacamole, I believe simpler is better. No tomatoes, no cumin, no jalapenos, no crazy other stuff.* I mean, hello, we're starting with an avocado here, one of nature's perfect (and perfectly tasty) foods. (*Disclaimer: [...]

Berry Crisp

I feel as though I've committed a serious crime. A foodie crime, if you will. Oh, there is such a thing. In fact, this may be my third strike. First, I used Velveeta, and admitted to loving it. Then, I made macaroons instead of macarons. Strike two. And now… a fruit crisp made with frozen [...]

Dark Chocolate Macaroons

Is it weird that I love the Bob's Red Mill aisle at my local grocery store? Bags and bags of flours, oatmeal, seeds, grains… so many possibilities, I could browse for a long, long time. (Yes, I totally know it's weird. I don't even know why I asked.) Recently I picked up a bag of [...]

Fruit Salad with Honey-Lime Dressing

Okay, so I've been digressing a little bit. First I gushed a bunch about my dog Lizzie, then I was mean and posted pictures of our (mostly) sunny trip to Arizona. Not really food, home, or garden related, I know. I just couldn't help myself. But now, I'm back! Behold: Delicious fruit! Fruit salad is one [...]

Feta-Stuffed Medjool Dates

We picked up some luscious-looking Medjool dates the other day, and I've been enjoying them straight out of the box and stirred into my oatmeal. I figured I should do something a little fancier with a few. This is what I came up with. (I know, not a very exciting introduction, is it? I'm sorry, [...]

French Toast

I haven't talked about the Grunt Rating System lately. But trust me, it remains in full force. It was invented by my guy as a way to communicate the true male-friendliness of a particular dish. One Grunt Up: My guy really really likes this and deems this recipe most definitely dude friendly. Two Grunts Up: [...]
