Red, white and blueberries

Happy 4th of July!! If you’re struggling with what to make for your family BBQ today I have JUST the idea🙂 I am ashamed to say that I have never made a blueberry pie. I am an absolute blueberry fanatic but I always thought a blueberry pie took my favorite little fruit and turned it…

The LBD in my cookbook

This brownie recipe in my cookbook is like the little black dress in my closet. Like my LBD, it’s there when you need it, to either dress up or dress down, let your friend borrow or when you’re running late and need to get ready in a pinch. Sometimes you even forget completely about it…

Tiramisu!

I’m back!! And let me tell you, this post was worth the wait. Thanks to Inspired Taste I have found the most PERFECT tiramisu recipe. I’m actually (almost) resentful of how good this recipe is because it’s requested so frequently, and it’s not the quickest thing to whip up. But don’t let that deter you! It’s easy….

A Taste of Summer

I woke up this morning to snow. Don’t get me wrong, it was absolutely beautiful. It gently defined each tree branch, even against the gray sky. It accumulated in just the corners of my windows so that it looked like I was on set of the Polar Express. And then, I snapped back to reality and…

Instead of looking up new recipes to try, I have been completely absorbed in researching venues, photographers, and dresses. Not to worry- there has still been plenty of baking…

Crazy for Cookies

Have you ever had one of those weeks when it feels like it should be 5 o’clock on Friday but it’s only Tuesday?? Oh right, of course not😉 Just humor me on this one then. I was running short on time last night and needed something to calm my mind and satisfy my sweet tooth. My…

Hello November!

I all too happily kiss bathing suit season goodbye and embrace these colder, darker days because for me, it means more time in the kitchen!! I have been making these pumpkin muffins for (believe it or not) 20 years. My mom got the recipe for the muffins when I was in pre-school and came home from a play…
