Chocolate-Dipped Coconut Macaroons

I’ve never been a fan of those store-bought macaroons everyone gets around Passover. They feel dense, and I don’t think they taste that great either. My family seems to enjoy them, but that’s probably because they haven’t tasted a real, true, homemade macaroon. And now that they have, I doubt they’ll ever be able to […]

Mini Zucchini and Carrot Bread for #LeftoversClub

Sometimes I find it so hard to think up of things to make for #leftoversclub. First of all, it has to be something that will travel well. So that leaves out anything that could melt, anything that needs to be refrigerated, and anything that could fall apart. Cookies, cupcakes and quick breads are always favorites, […]

Food Blogging is passing onto the Next Generation…

You know the adorable little roomie of mine who has helped me make this Homemade Ravioli with Spinach, Ricotta and Feta Filling and this Cookies and Cream Chocolate Layer Cake? Welp, she’s becoming a Food Blogger! My baking adventures with Emma go back way before I ever moved in. When I first met Amy (her mother; my roommate), […]

Hamantaschen for #Purim

Purim has come and gone, but that doesn’t mean I can’t share these cookies with you. Hamantaschen are a Purim tradition: triangular-shaped cream cheese dough cookies filled with prunes, various kinds of fruit preserves, or poppy seeds, or if you’re me, you also stuff them with things like chocolate, peanut butter and Nutella. (Raspberry preserves […]

Birthday Celebration with Mint Chocolate Pudding Pie

Yes, I baked my own birthday dessert. But I didn’t cook for myself, so that’s a plus.As food bloggers, it’s impossible to keep us out of the kitchen even when we are celebrating our own birthdays. By the way, today is mine! I turn a whopping 26-years-old today. I’ve been alive for over a quarter of a century! […]

Breakfast Cookies and Easy Ideas for Target Breakfast Twists

Do you ever get bored with breakfast? I tend to always eat the same thing… I either make a smoothie (like my Mellow Yellow Tropical Smoothie or Kale, Peanut Butter and Banana) or I’ll have a bowl of oatmeal. I sometimes need a little inspiration to break out of my breakfast rut, and thanks to […]

Chocolate Avocado Muffins for #LeftoversClub

Do you ever buy things simply because they’re on sale or you have a coupon? I’m always looking to save a buck when I go grocery shopping, so naturally I gravitate toward sales. Most of the time it’s non-perishables, so it really doesn’t matter if I’m not going to use it right away. But last […]

Triple Chocolate S’mores Brownie #SundaySupper

Unless you have been living under a rock, you are aware that today is Super Bowl Sunday! Tonight around 6pm, the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos will fight to the finish – in New Jersey! Why on earth someone thought it would be a good idea to have Jersey host the game is beyond me. […]

Chocolate Chip Cookies and Cream Bars

I like to try to keep my baked desserts on the lighter side, but sometimes you just can’t skimp on certain ingredients when there’s a texture or taste you’re aiming for. Remember Bubby’s Cookie Cake? I highly, highly doubt that would have been anywhere near as delicious if you didn’t use the 2 (yes, 2!) […]

Gingerbread White Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have another Christmas-y cookie recipe for you. Gingerbread White Chocolate Chip Cookies! I’ve actually never made a gingerbread cookie before. I love my Gingerbread Lattes from Starbucks, and you all know how big a fan I am of the spice in general, so why haven’t I made any gingerbread baked goods before?  To tell […]
