Mascarpone and Chocolate Chip Cake

November 12, 2012

I’m finally getting back into my cooking/baking routine after falling out of it so hard I was starting to question whether I even liked cooking anymore.  And it’s a good thing too because I was starting to wonder whether my frequent takeout routine was making me crabby.  It’s not that there is anything wrong with […]

A Midwestern Meets Mediterranean Dinner Party

July 27, 2012

As I mentioned early in the week my projects in the kitchen have been a little pathetic this summer. So when family came into town I was determined to redeem myself. Thankfully, around the same time I received an invitation from McCormick Gourmet to participate in their Dinner Party Chain so the stars seemed perfectly aligned […]

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 […]

Candy Cap Mushroom Sponge Candy

November 13, 2011

I’m always up for a cooking contest, especially if it challenges me to work with an ingredient that is unfamiliar to me. So I was very excited when Marx Foods announced their The Sweeter Side of Mushrooms: A Candy Cap Recipe Contest. As participants, we were tasked with creating a recipe with these unique mushrooms. […]

Caramel Apple Shortcakes

October 24, 2011

Recently the boyfriend (Yes, I have one and the fuzzy feeling of using that title hasn’t worn off yet.) and I headed up to Indiana to do a day of fall activities. First on the agenda was apple picking at Garwood Orchard. What’s been an annual tradition for me (albeit at different orchards having now […]

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 […]

Chocolate-Cherry Cookie Dough Truffles

September 20, 2011

I’ve been having to make a conscious effort not to wish the rest of summer away. According to my calendar it is not officially autumn until Friday even though for all intents and purposes it feels like fall already and mentally I’m already there. Once the high school around the corner from where I live […]

Whopper Lover’s Crispy Treats

September 14, 2011

Could it be? Am I actually developing a sweet tooth. I’m not sure what’s gotten into me, but I think it has something to do with the Whopper Blondies I made earlier this month.  They rekindled my love affair with a candy from my childhood that I didn’t even realize I missed. Since then I’ve […]

Whopper Blondies

September 1, 2011

Inevitably when August is over and September rolls in I’ve had my fill of summer. I’m ready to say goodbye to mosquito bites and humidity and say hello to apple picking, crisp evenings, and of course, baking projects.  I know I should stay in the moment, embracing summer rather than wishing it away, but fall […]
