All Things Sweet

Cookies n’ Cream Gelato with Boozy Caramel Sauce

Summer is coming to a close and yet my Instagram is abuzz with photos of people on these amazing, exotic vacations all over the world. As I sit and scroll through these envy-inducing images from the familiarity of my couch/bed/cubicle, I always feel myself forming that notorious pair of green eyes famous for blinding people […]

Peach and Coconut Crostata

If I’m being perfectly honest (which, of course, I’m never anything but since I’m a blogger and that wouldn’t be cool to lie on my own space; that would basically be lying to myself and I am not self-deceptive although I will admit that I do live in my own world sometimes, which is okay […]

Strawberry Toffee Pie with Pretzel Crust

Now that summer is successfully underway (I’d call 62 days of almost-straight sun a success), life is pretty exciting. During these past two months of chiilin’ out, maxin, and relaxin’ all cool, there are three things that I’m particularly thrilled about. And they all have to do with food in one way or another. Didn’t […]

Spiced Brown Butter Waffles Topped with Fresh Berries, Salted Praline, and Amaretto Cream

I like a fancy breakfast. And the great part is that fancy breakfast is just a regular breakfast with a little something special to dress it up. Think about your favorite thing to eat for breakfast. I, for example, am an oatmeal kind of person. (I wonder if a person’s breakfast of choice has some […]

White Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Lately, I’ve been learning how important it is to enjoy the simple things in life. Things like the feeling of a hot drink between two cold hands or the wonderful breathlessness after a good laugh with friends. But, making cookies is definitely in the Top Ten Favorite Things list for me. (Que that Sound of […]

Vanilla Chai Scones

Hearts represent love. Circles represent continuity. And scones represent a magnificent thing that always looks harmoniously correct when sitting next to a steaming mug of coffee/tea. It’s like someone in a bakery (probably in 1920′s Paris because I just imagine that’s where a lot of cool things took place) just happened to drink some hot […]

Icing-Dipped Oatmeal Cookies

My anthem for this summer has definitely been the song “Classic” by MKTO. I’ve been listening to it so much that I even have the rap part of the song down. Like I could bust it out right now if I wanted to. In fact, I often do when I’m driving in my car. That being […]

Peanut Butter Silk Pie

It’s official. Between work and summer school, life has become busy again. Which means my baking life has had to slow down. Good news, though! Only 2 weeks left of class and then I am free to return to the comforts of my kitchen with my trusty mixer, shiny oven, and gallon-sized container of sugar. […]

Toasted Pound Cake Shortcakes

Having a low-key Fourth of July celebration called for a casual, yet slightly fancy, yet super easy, yet refreshing, yet absolutely delicious dessert. These shortcakes were a hit and I was able to whip them up in a pinch! In fact, because I was in said pinch, I broke down and used a boxed cake […]

Mudslide Trifle

So, I figured it out. A mudslide, which can be an awful, devastating natural disaster but also makes for a very interesting title for a gooey, chocolatey dessert, is represented in the following way here: the brownies are the big rocks and boulders, the chocolate pudding is the (hello!) mud, and the whipped cream . . .
