Apple, Cranberry and Orange Muffins

May 11, 2012

One of the fun things about having a food blog is that it provides a peek into what I was preparing and eating at different points in time. Since I’ve never wanted to keep a true food diary I don’t capture every meal and morsel here, but it still gives a good 30,000 feet view [...]

Secret Recipe Club: Crunchy Chocolate Squares

April 23, 2012

For my second month in Secret Recipe Club I was assigned the blog Yumsilicious Bakes.  With an ample amount of pink in her blog design, Avanika is a girl after my own heart.  Her blog is full of sweet treats like Chocolate Overdose Cake and Snickerdoodles. As I was pursuing her blog it happened to [...]

Candy Cane Biscotti

December 15, 2011

For a long time I hated peppermint.  It makes me feel like a bit of a scrooge to say so this time of year given the iconic nature of candy canes and my especially unabashed love of Christmas.  As a kid I’d never turn down cherry flavored candy canes, but the mint ones, for me, [...]

Candy Cane Blossoms for The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap

December 12, 2011

The sugar high continues here on The Pink Apron with the reveal of our recipes for The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap.  I know I thoroughly enjoyed participating because I definitely enjoy baking for others much more than for myself and I also really, really enjoy receiving packages.  Getting my boxes reminded me very much [...]

Goat Cheese Brownies Using a Boxed Mix

December 8, 2011

As I noted last year, as soon as December rolls around my food preferences switch dramatically. Most times of the year I post vastly more savory dishes than sweet on my blog (or at least it feels like I do) because in general, salt is my weakness. I’ll generally take a second helping of mac [...]

Banana Split Cookies

November 23, 2011

I love taking something that’s already good and making it better.  There is something satisfying, for me, about looking at recipes as if they are always in beta, with things that can be tweaked or improved.  I’m notorious for rarely making a recipe the same way twice so I always feel like I’m experimenting and [...]

Chai-Spiced Peach Oatmeal Cookies

October 3, 2011

If there is one thing (well, not true, there are probably many, many things) I dislike, it’s moving.  Sure it was fun in college, with the help of my parents to organize, pack, unpack, reorganize, and repack things, but when you’re a girl on your own it is decidedly NOT a fun endeavor.  Because of [...]

Apple Butter Coconut Crumble Bars

May 18, 2011

There are some things that come out of the kitchen where you realize that as delicious as they are, they’re clearly not winning any beauty awards.  These Apple Butter Coconut Crumble Bars fall into that camp.  And it’s a shame because they are an absolutely sumptuous.  You start with a rich buttery crust with a [...]

Compost Cookies

May 17, 2011

Despite the rainy and unforgiving weather here in Chicago, our contribution to the National Food Blogger Bake Sale to benefit Share our Strength was successful.  Over $1,000 was raised and 30 people (bloggers and non-bloggers) volunteered to make it happen.   (I’m including links for the other bloggers that came in case you want to [...]
