I recently bought a big ol’ 24 oz. jar of local honey at the farmer’s market and can’t wait to dig into the amber goodness. So far, I’ve managed to drizzle a little over Greek yogurt. I know, delicious but dull. Time to sweeten the pot with some ingenious honey-based recipes. … More »
I love bananas, but my sister loathes them. If you try to bring a banana into her car, she will make you eat it before and dispose of the peel on the sidewalk. To her horror, I put bananas in everything. Pancakes, smoothies, ice cream sundaes, you name it, it’s probably better with a banana. More »
I’ve said before that I drink alcohol for the variety of tastes, but what I haven’t disclosed yet is that I am obsessed with putting booze into my cakes (also: I am obsessed with cake).

There is one dessert I will never pass up. It’s name is crème brulee. Its glossy sugar casing only hints at the delectable creamy goodness underneath.

FACT: Brunch is the best meal of the day. When else can one enjoy oodles of carbs with real maple syrup, thick cut bacon, fluffy eggs, and booze? Not into eggs? Enjoy a deep fried macaroni and cheese burger, because at brunch, anything goes! My favorite brunch includes unlimited mimosas, yoga pants, and a recliner (AKA at home… More »
I’m not much of a cook. I’ve never gone so far as to use my oven for shoe storage like Carrie Bradshaw, but I am definitely a lady of take-out and Lean Cuisine. Someday, when I’m no longer a frenzied college student, I’ll commit to learning the ins and outs of the kitchen like an… More »

Different things are hard for different people. For me, eating dessert is easy — too easy. Baking it is hard. I know a bunch of you will roll your eyes at me and tell me how easy it is to whip up a soufflé. I am jealous of you. The only exposure I had to… More »
I can vaguely remember a time in my life when a cake stuffed with candy might seem a little strange and excessive, but that was Before Pinterest (B.P.) completely desensitized me to the phenomenon of desserts stuffed with more dessert. Now, the idea of a piñata cake actually seems kind of tame, at least compared… More »

My Italian great aunt used to always say, ” All you need is bread.” Of course, she also used to always say that I needed to be vigilant in order to avoid being kidnapped by gypsies, but let’s just focus on the bread thing, shall we? Because my zany aunt was right: there’s really nothing… More »
Oh, candy corn: every September, I get so excited about it, and then I eat a few handfuls and spend the afternoon with a disgusting waxy sugar headache, cursing the day it was created.
