Small-Batch Fudgy Dark Chocolate Cookie Sandwiches with Raspberry Buttercream

Dessert isn’t an everyday thing in my house, but when I make it, I think it should be special. Valentine’s dessert in particular, because for some reason it just goes hand-in-hand with the whole idea of romance. (more…)

30-Minute Chocolate-Espresso Beef and Black Bean Chili

Do you go out for dinner on Valentine’s Day or stay at home?

(I usually make Mike and I a romantic meal, like our favorite Spiced Sirloin Roast for Two, but this year I’m on strike…so either he’ll end up cooking or we’ll go out. Because sometimes a girl just needs to go on strike for a night, right, ladies?) (more…)

Flourless Chocolate Pear Hazelnut Cake with Bahlsen Waffeletten

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…)

Skinny Raspberry-Chocolate Cheesecake Milkshakes

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…)

Double Dark Chocolate Muffins with Almonds and White Chocolate Drizzle

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.

Loaded Kit Kat Peanut Butter Brownies

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…)

Deluxe Cake Batter Fudge

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…)
