Ginger Molasses Pizzelles

I picked up a new Pizzelle maker this last week and wanted to give it a try. Initially I was going for some cheesy pizzelles to have with the homemade pasta I was working on for dinner. After whipping up a batch of those I was hooked. At that moment, my only regret was that […] Continue reading >

Cranberry Pear Spice Crisp

I don't know about you, but we seem to get a lot of gift baskets the last quarter of the year and they usually contain pears. So we are whipping up some easy holiday baking recipes utilizing pears. Because pears are related to apples, it's a general rule that if a recipe calls for apples, […] Continue reading >

Chocolate Cake with Earl Grey Buttercream

I recently picked up the Layered cookbook by Tessa Huff. First, I'm going to say that this book is awesome. Quite a few incredible easy desserts in there. But her London Fog cake really stood out. I'm a huge fan of Earl Grey tea so we gave this a whirl. I'll say it was pretty […] Continue reading >

Sugar Cookies

We don't usually do too much during Valentines at my house, but a great dessert is a priority […] Continue reading >

Red Wine Chocolate Cupcakes

Now that Christmas is over I'm attempting to wean myself from so many peppermint pastries. It was good while it lasted (Sooooo good) but moving onto New Years celebrations. These red wine chocolate cupcakes are just the thing I need for my New Years Eve party. It's been years since I've gone out on the […] Continue reading >

Holiday Sugar Cookies

I'm a huge fan of gourmet sugar cookies. But I'm not a huge fan of accumulating a bunch of cookie cutters that I have to store somewhere when not in use. So, I decided to whip up some holiday sugar cookies and surf Pinterest for a few decorating ideas. Wowza, it's amazing what is out […] Continue reading >

Chocolate Peppermint Meringues

Christmas is just a short two weeks away. There are so many holiday parties and get togethers going on. We thought this would make a great holiday gift for your hostess or could even be great just as a dessert for your party. Or shoot, who am I kidding, I make them for myself sometimes […] Continue reading >
