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…)

Let’s talk birthday cake for a quick minute.

Do you have the same cake every year, or do you switch it up? (more…)

5-Minute Healthy Chocolate Mug Cake {Paleo}

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…)

Pecan Linzer Cookies with Cherry Filling

Does anyone else remember being in elementary school and literally spending days hunting around for the perfect Valentine’s Day cards for your classmates?

Everyone used to have to give a card to everyone – boy or girl – no matter if we liked them or not.

(Which of course was good so that no one felt left out…but it left serious problems when it came to choosing the perfect card. It was a fine line between finding a pretty, flowery card for the girls without having it be too sappy and endearing for the boys. Ahhh, to have the problems of a fifth-grade girl again, lol.)

Toasted Coconut Cream Pudding

Wednesday, January 15th, 2014


Here in the Middle East, hospitality reigns supreme.

This means that at any time a guest could pop by unannounced and you have to be ready to be hospitable. Which basically means you have to be willing to drop whatever it is you were doing before they arrived and entertain them, and of course you need to have a well-stocked fridge so you can offer them refreshments. (more…)

Toasted Hazelnut Chocolate-Espresso Cookies

Mike and I have a friend here in Kuwait who doesn’t like to eat.

I know what you’re thinking. Wait…what?! Explain please, because I just don’t understand.

Yup, it’s true, he doesn’t like to eat, toddler-style. As in, I guess I’ll eat if I have to, but only when I really feel like it, and good luck getting me to try anything new.

Sigh. The challenges I have to face, lol. (more…)

Healthy Candy Apple Wedges {Paleo}

Wednesday, October 30th, 2013


How many of you will admit to sneaking some of your kid’s Halloween candy when no one is looking?

I don’t have kids (yet!), but yeah, I’d be guilty as charged.

It’s the stuff we won’t buy for ourselves, but if it’s just hanging around, it’s fair game. If you didn’t buy it for yourself, the calories don’t count, right? ;)

I like to have healthier treats that will still satisfy a sweet tooth at the ready. (more…)

Pumpkin New York-Style Crumb Cake

Are you a math person?

I’m a weird sort of non-math math person. I’m the type of person who can figure out completely convoluted math word problems quickly. But then, I’m sad to say, my basic math skills – like multiplication and division – are pretty lacking. Sigh. I have absolutely nothing to say for myself.

Mike is always confounded as to how my mind works. He’s the opposite of me, so I guess we complete each other, lol. (more…)
