Orange Cupcakesicles

This idea came about thanks to Sweetest Kitchen’s Mystery Box Cupcake Challenge where July’s ingredient was Tea.  I got so excited thinking of all the fun tea flavors I could use to come up with something new, wondrous, and magical, when it struck me that I  wanted to create a flavor combo as an homage […]

Up ’til 7:30am because of a 24 Marathon Birthday Bars

Although these are actually chocolate chip peanut butter bars, I decided the ridiculously long name Up ’til 7:30am because of a 24 Marathon Birthday Bars were more appropriate. Here’s why… My friend’s birthday was on July 3rd, and she loves Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, so I figured I’d make her something with that flavor combo […]

Salted Caramel Cheesecake Bites

I hope you all had a good 4th! I know I did, which is why this entry is a day late… Let me start this post off with a story… I was sitting at my desk, minding my own business, when I hear someone scream out behind me “Oh my G-d!” I turned to see […]

Key Lime Bars

A coworker was having a Summer Solstice party so I racked my brain for a summery treat to bring. Everyone loves chocolate, of course, but I wanted to do something different. I’d heard tell of tequila being at this party and I instantly thought of margaritas, which led me to think “Lime!” I’d found this recipe […]

Red Velvet Whoopie Pies

Here’s a belated Valentine’s treat for you. I found these on Annie’s Eats, and I couldn’t resist making them for the coworkers before the long weekend. They didn’t turn out as well as I hoped, I suspect overmixing was the cause, but they certainly looked cute! I heard from most everyone that they were extremely […]

Superbowl 2010

Ah, the Superbowl. A whole lot of preparation and chaos (and food!) for a few hours of camaraderie (yelling) amongst friends. I went to a party with the friends I normally watch pro games with during the season, and it was insanely fun. I brought some dessert by request, and I’m totally fine with that. […]

Apricot Rugelach

For the second installment of the 2010 Tax Season Cookie Rollout, I decided to make what I recently discovered was my dad’s favorite cookie – apricot rugelach. I had no idea. Seriously, the man loves chocolate so I would have said Oreos. (They’re coming, Dad.) Turns out my grandma used to make these kind, and […]

Black and White Cookies

It no doubt stems from the New Yorker in me, but I love Black and White cookies. They’re a perfect balance of chocolate and vanilla, like those half and half dixie cups we used to have on Sundays at camp. (You guys know what I’m talking about.) I always preferred the chocolate half myself, but […]

Holiday Linzer Cookies

I threw the “Holiday” part in the title because they really were for the holidays in my home. They’re my mom’s favorites! You can try this recipe out and maybe they can be your mom’s favorites too. See, just because I was on vacation in real life doesn’t mean I took a break from baking, […]

Chocolate, Chocolate, Chocolate

One thing I’ve yearned to do is come up with my own recipe for cookies. I don’t have enough experience as a baker to do this fully, but I have picked up on a lot of substitution ideas by reading other baking blogs and comparing similar recipes. Now, it’s probably better to do a recipe […]
