Profiteroles with Bourbon Ice Cream and Berry Coulis

I love profiteroles. I think they were the first “super fancy French pastry” I tried as a child that I really loved. This weekend I went berry picking with my daughter and we picked over $7 worth of blueberries and almost $14 worth of blackberries. I made the mistake of bringing big boxes with us…

Strawberry Guava Popsicle with Wild Blueberries and Coconut Greek Yogurt

Popsicles are amazing icy treats from heaven. Unfortunately, I don’t make them often because my toddler is the only person her age that hates popsicles (the neon-colored store-bought push-up popsicles are okay though). So, I only ever make popsicles when I really want one. And when I saw that my local produce store had fresh…

Snickerdoodle Cookie Butter + Snickerdoodle Recipe

Confession time: I’ve never had cookie butter before this. I know, how can I create a recipe for something I’ve never had before… but people rant and rave about it so much, I just couldn’t help it. I mean, I know people who will go out to Trader Joe’s just to stock up on cookie…

Birthday Denial Ramblings

  Okay, so…. it’s my birthday today. I am… gulp… 26 27 years old. Most people get excited and bake cakes and are just thrilled that they have a day all about them, but not me. That hasn’t been the case since I was about 4 years old. To prove how much I actually pay…

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip and Pretzel Skillet Cookie with Nutella

Why are skillet cookies so good? I think it has something to do with the fact that with skillet cookies, you are perfectly okay to take a pie-sized slice which is the equivalent of oh, I don’t know, 5 large cookies, and no one blinks an eye. Of course, when I have a peanut butter chocolate…

Bourbon Cherry Apple Pie

It comes in waves… the grief of losing my great-grandmother. I didn’t cry at her funeral until the very end when a few tears came involuntarily when I saw my grandmother touch her mother’s coffin as they took her away. A swell of tears begin to fill my eyes thinking about it now. During the…

Talk about a full,…
