Mini S’mores Pies

Mini S’mores Pies

Apparently last Monday was National S’mores Day. It seems there is a national day celebrating each and every kind of food that you can possibly imagine. This post is a bit late for this “holiday,” but better late than never, I guess. These mini s’mores pies were a big hit with Dustin after a long…

Blueberry Mint Pie

Blueberry Mint Pie

This blueberry mint pie was inspired by my favorite lemonade flavor at a local upscale cafeteria restaurant. I’ve started stopping by after my barre workout, which pretty much cancels out all the hard work I’ve just done. It’s just so refreshing to sip on during my walk home in the California sun. I started thinking…

Bailey’s Cheesecake Bars

Bailey’s Cheesecake Bars

Last year for St. Patty’s Day I made the Momofuku Grasshopper pie and two years ago I made these Guinness cupcakes with Bailey’s frosting;. I thought it was about time to bring out the Bailey’s again this time as the star in the form of cheesecake rather than frosting. I was pleasantly surprised at how…

King Cake Monkey Bread

King Cake Monkey Bread

I’m all for celebrating Mardi Gras and Fat Tuesday because Mardi Gras means one thing to me…King Cake! King Cake with cream cheese filling was a big hit a few years ago, but I wanted to simplify the whole process, turning it into a pull-apart style monkey bread. So before Dustin left for San Antonio over…

White Chocolate Lava Cakes

White Chocolate Lava Cakes

We had great success making molten chocolate lava cakes last year around Valentine’s Day. This year we decided to change it up ever so slightly by making white chocolate lava cakes with a hint of lime for a little extra kick. Top with ice cream and fudge sauce for a decadent treat. Things have been…

Pink Velvet Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting

Pink Velvet Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting

Happy Valentine’s Day! We are spending this evening going back to our Valentine’s pizza eating tradition this year after spending last year apart with me in New York for grad school interviews. We got into the spirit a little early this year when we had some friends over for dinner this week by serving these pink…

Champagne Cupcakes with Raspberry Filling

Champagne Cupcakes with Raspberry Filling

We rang in 2014 with a quiet evening watching the ball drop in NYC, drinking and eating champagne in cupcake form, and hanging with our girls. Yup, you heard me right. Bonnie now has a little sister named Bella we adopted a few days ago. Maybe we are insane because Bonnie is such a good…

Mini Chocolate Peppermint Biscotti

Mini Chocolate Peppermint Biscotti

I really enjoyed making the pumpkin biscotti back in October, so this holiday season I decided I would make biscotti again with a slightly different twist using the ever so popular holiday flavor combination of chocolate and peppermint. I intended to use these cute little Christmas tree sprinkles I have, but when I went looking…

Gingerbread Cookie Dough Bark

Gingerbread Cookie Dough Bark

I’ve made some pretty spectacular tasting birthday cakes, most recently the Andes mint chocolate chip cake for D’s birthday last month, and the Momofuku birthday cake will always be a contender for favorite cake. Normally I welcome any opportunity that gives me an excuse to bake a cake, even if it means making my own…

Nutella Rugelach

Nutella Rugelach

A few weeks ago, someone at school brought in a big box of rugelach from a bakery she frequented in her youth. There were all sorts of flavors, but the chocolate one stuck out as the best to me, so I thought I’d do my own version containing Nutella in celebration of Hanukkah. I also…
