I have a sketchy history with Halloween and costumes. (more…)

Did you know that September is the biggest birthday month of year?
I had no idea until just recently, but with my birthday on September 30, I thought this was pretty interesting. (Yes, I probably need to get out more, lol.) (more…)
How about a berry cheesecake milkshake for breakfast?, I enticed Mike one Saturday morning.
Cheesecake-flavored anything is his favorite; combine it with berries and he’s in heaven. Needless to say, he was pretty excited about breakfast that day.
That is, until he saw me add cottage cheese to the blender in a moment of inspiration. (more…)
A while ago, a friend and I were at Starbucks and she ordered a chocolate muffin. Now, I admit that I’ve sampled a lot of baked goods that Starbucks has to offer, but their chocolate muffins – never! I was intrigued and it looked good, but I resisted ordering it.
But it got me thinking that I need to come up with a good recipe for homemade chocolate muffins… (more…)
While I was back home last holiday season and Mike was here in Kuwait, he took the opportunity to load up on a few choice junk food items that usually don’t make their way into our cart when he and I shop together.
I came back to a kitchen fully stocked with chips, soda, and candy bars by the case. (Oh my God, it was a nightmare. I can’t imagine what he was thinking.) (more…)
I don’t know about you, but I’m a little hard-pressed to find a dessert that’s suitable for Easter outside of carrot cake, lemon bars, or orange chiffon cake. And of course all the cutesy little bunny and egg-topped cupcakes and cookies.
There’s nothing wrong with any of those things (in fact, I die over a good slice of carrot cake!), but I don’t know…I like to mix things up a little.
If you’re the same way, this fudge will definitely keep things interesting. (more…)
Like I mentioned here, I’m kind-of particular about my cake. (As Mike likes to tell me, I’m kind-of particular about a lot of food-related stuff, but that remains to be proven and is an entirely different discussion for another day.)
Anyway. I don’t think there is anything more disappointing than seeing an absolutely stunning cake and then sinking your teeth into what you think will be pure bliss, and realizing that it tastes like rubbery-textured cardboard.
Such a bummer. (more…)
I know it’s last-minute, but I got you a Valentine’s Day gift.
(You knew I wouldn’t forget about you, right?)
I think you’ll forgive me for being fashionably late when you find out what it is. (more…)
The mere mention of things like homemade Snickers Bars (which I have wanted to make for forever now!), Peppermint Patties, and Buckeyes is enough to make me want to throw all caution – along with anything remotely healthy – to the wind.
Thoughts like Who need healthy when Christmas is less than a week away? start to run through my head, and before I know what’s happening, I’m making batch after batch of sponge candy. And I realized, I could not hoard a recipe as good as this all for myself…especially since I have seen this candy being sold for upwards of $20/lb! (more…)
