Red Velvet Whoopie Pies

May is all supposed to be all about pies around here, my darlings.  I’m starting out with a bit of an unconventional pie post, though, just to keep things exciting for you.. with whoopie pies! Have you heard about whoopie pies?  They kind of had a moment in the foodie world recently, and it seemed […]

Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies

I am a chewy chocolate chip cookie lover.  There is just something excellent about biting into a soft, gooey, melty cookie.  Sounds perfect already.. but add nutella, and I’ll eat the whole batch. I’ve been a little light on the posting lately.  That’s mostly because I got burnt out on all the vegan business.  It […]

Vegan CocoNana Mini Muffins

Even though I’m not living the vegan lifestyle anymore, I’m still finding ways to enjoy vegan recipes in my diet.  I saw this recipe this morning on Miss Mary‘s blog and I had to jump right in and make them!  They looked delicious and simple, and they were. The name CocoNana refers to the coconut […]

Part-Time Vegan, Day 4

  I ate too many cookies today. ‘Cause, you know.. sugar’s vegan. (Woo hoo!) Breakfast was a peanut butter banana wrap with almond milk. Lunch was the salad bar at Lane’s. Snack was (too many!!) vegan chocolate chip cookies. Dinner was leftover pasta. Let me just tell you about this banana wrap.  I make this […]

Cinnamon Sugar Baked Doughnuts

Back in January, when I started this whole great adventure, I promised you doughnuts during Brunch Month.  It took me all month, but I can finally deliver! Here’s my deal with doughnuts.  I usually don’t eat them.  I don’t work in an office these days, and I don’t make a habit of driving through Krispy […]

TWD: Honey Nut Brownies

Sweet, sweet TWD.  It’s been too long. I have been a major slack-a-saurus with my Tuesdays with Dorie baking.  I think I just got burnt out on all the sugar.  Then I saw the words “honey nut brownies” and stopped in my tracks.  I had to make them.  Love me some honey! Here’s what you […]

Mint Chocolate Macarons

After my dismal/embarrassing first try at macarons earlier this month, I picked up my spatula and gave it another go.  I will not be defeated by a cookie. I wasn’t sure where to go from the first recipe, but I wanted to make something green for St. Pat’s.  Since I already hit you with my […]

Strawberry Ice Cream

 Remember Monday?  When I couldn’t deliver my Valentine’s Day gift to you? So lame.  You deserve better. You deserve strawberry ice cream. Can we still be valentines? Good.  Moving on. You know what’s even better than making this ice cream for your sweetheart on VDay?  Making it for them a week later.  Then, not only […]

Love and Chocolate

Happy Valentine’s Day, beautiful people!   Love is in the air. I did make you some delicious strawberry ice cream, but I can’t download the pictures at my current location, so you’ll just have to wait in anticipation for your V-Day gift.  I do love you, though, so I’m going to share some of my favorite […]
