thanksgiving apple pie

I made two desserts this year and both are worth sharing. The first is Pioneer Woman’s dreamy apple pie, but with a twist. And the twist is rum. What doesn’t rum make better? Any how, here’s the recipe: the REALLY dreamy apple pie adapted from PW’s recipe I’ve never tried her pie crust recipe, although […]

white chocolate macadamia nut cookies

I made some white chocolate macadamia nut cookies for some very special ladies this week. Fun fact #1) I have never made white chocolate macadamia nut cookies before in my life. However, I am fond of them. Fun fact #2) These are the best white chocolate macadamia nut cookies I’ve ever had in my life. […]

salted chocolate caramel bars

A few weekends ago, my future hubby spent the weekend with his friend Bobby in New York. While I miss him dearly whenever he’s gone, I enjoy spending my Saturday nights baking new recipes. This particular night I made coconut lemon bars (which I didn’t take a picture of) and salted millionaires shortbread, which I […]

chocolate peanut butter chip cookies

We were invited to a pool party not too long ago. Of course it’s always nice to bring a side dish to these sorts of gatherings. Mine are usually sweet. For this particular occasion, I decided to go with a rich chocolatecookie and add peanut butter chips. I highly recommend using a high quality cocoa powder, even […]

I suggest swiss meringue, but any […]

hello chocolate

While my vanilla cake might be my favorite, I also have a soft spot for this chocolate cake. It isn’t the ultimate recipe (which I am still searching for) but it is very close. I honestly think the key to getting an incredible chocolate cake is, quite simply, the chocolate. Some call for chocolate squares […]

I came across this gorgeous cake on I Am Baker and decided I’d try it the next time I made a cake – look how simple but pretty this is – all you need is a 1M open star-tip. … and you can put a flower on a sugar cookie for a lovely but easy […]
