Summer in Food Form & a Recipe for S’Mores Cookies

Fact: s’mores are summertime in the form of food. They’re warm and ooey gooey… and they make it completely okay to have chocolate all over your face while licking sticky roasted marshmallows off your fingers. I must confess, however, that I’m not a seasoned s’mores pro. The first time I ever had one of these […]


Sweet Treats & a Recipe for Chocolate Cupcakes with Vanilla Bean and Toasted Coconut Buttercream

Everyone needs a little sweetness in their life. Whether it’s in the form of good company, a drink on a patio in the sunshine, or, quite literally, a sweet treat; there’s something about these little things – these little gestures that brighten up our lives. I love all forms of sweetness, but most often it […]


Cookie Daydreams & a Recipe for Matcha Dark Chocolate Meringue Cookies

I’ve been daydreaming about cookies lately. Not any specific type, anything sweet will do. Though, of course, I wouldn’t argue with a little chocolate… or a soft, chewy texture. That’s a lie – I wouldn’t argue with any type of cookie {chewy & chocolatey or not}. It’s not enough just to dream about them, is […]


Valentine’s Day & Raspberry White Chocolate Cupcakes

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day; do you adore or loathe the holiday? Is it a day of happiness or heartbreak, dramatic gestures or tear-soaked tissues? For me, it’s simply an excuse to wear a pretty pink dress, drink some bubbly, and stuff my ruby-hued lips with chocolate and other sweet delights. I think Valentine’s Day is […]


Individual Chocolate Truffle Brownies

“These brownies are too chocolatey.” The above statement is gross and untrue. This is a phrase that has never been uttered {it better not have been… if it has, I never want to know what kind of person would say such a thing.}, with good reason. Brownies are all about being full of chocolate goodness. […]


Easing into Resolutions & a Recipe for Black and White Angel Food Cake

Remember that time I was flapping my pie hole about needing a bit of a detox after the holidays? Well… I suppose that time has come. No more eggnog {the rum part is debatable}, candy, or cookies; or gravy, for that matter. It’s almost time to bring on the greens, the big mugs of white […]


Chocolate, Chocolate, and more Chocolate: Chocolate Crackle Cookies

{Sigh} More chocolate. I’m either warming your heart, or starting to annoy you with all of these chocolaty recipes over the last couple of weeks… … like these Triple Dark Chocolate Mint Cookies… … or this Chocolate Candy Cane Fudge. If you’re pleased, you’re welcome. If not, eat a stick of celery, take a breather, […]


Holiday Preparation & Some Chocolate Candy Cane Fudge

Oh, the humanity. I swear, after the holidays are over, I’m going to need a serious detox. A wellness retreat of sorts; a vacation from all things chocolate, eggnog, Baileys, and baked goods. Until then, I’ll prepare for said detox by enjoying the holidays with obscene amounts of decadent goodness {it’s the logical thing to […]


Meeting an Idol & Triple Dark Chocolate Mint Cookies

  Last week I went to a baking class. It wasn’t just any baking class, the instructor was Anna Olson. The Anna Olson; the one whose show, Sugar, I used to hurry home from school for; whose stunning, delicate desserts inspired me to create beautiful desserts of my own. {It’s pretty amazing to meet someone […]


Trick or Treat & Some Dusty Old Bones

“Trick or treat?” When I was a kid, I always secretly wanted the person who answered the door when we called out to offer us a trick instead. You know, pull a rabbit out of a hat, a scarf out of a sleeve – to be honest, a “Got your nose!” would have sufficed. But […]
