Old Fashioned Gingerbread

While I’ve made my share of gingerbread men, (not really) ugly Christmas sweaters, and other ginger-themed cookies in the past, a friend of mine requested I make some actual gingerbread for a dinner he was hosting. Conveniently, I am on the AllRecipes email list, and this recipe came in just last week! It’s pretty easy to make, […]

Pumpkin Macarons

Happy Halloween! I should start off by telling you there’s no pumpkin in this recipe, but a hefty amount of pumpkin pie spice. ‘Pumpkin Pie Spiced Macarons’ is just a super long and not catchy name for a cookie, so there ya go.

Watermelon Granita

Do you know what one of the greatest things is about summer? If you answered watermelon, you are correct! (If you said the beach, ice cream, mojitos, or the smell of sunblock, you would also be correct in other circumstances.) I love watermelon, and I find it ridiculous to pay twice as much for a […]

Chocolate Puddin’ Pie

I’m really all about not baking lately. You read that correctly. I’m looking for any excuse not to turn on the oven because even the thought of it makes me hot. When I do turn on my oven, to roast veggies or make shrinky dinks, I make sure it’s late at night, at an hour […]
