Apple-Almond Streusel Muffins

Have I ever told you about my mom’s apple pie? It’s killer. She always makes it deep-dish style (like Chicago pizza). Sometimes she’ll make it with a double crust and sometimes she’ll make it with what she calls a “French crumble topping”, and her thick apple layer is perfectly spiced and sweetened. It is hands-down the best apple pie. In the world. (Tall claim, but I’m sticking to it…but I won’t argue if you tell me the same about your mom’s pie.)...

Chocolate Sauerkraut Cupcakes

I love how random Google searches can sometimes be.  I have no idea how “chromebar” and “poisonous mushrooms” are two of the all-time top key search phrases that lead to my blog, but I guess I’ll take it.  Also along the lines of random Google searches, I love how a couple weeks ago when I was looking for a recipe for stuffed chicken breast, all the sudden I happened on the next best thing (to me) since sliced bread…chocolate sauerkraut cake!...

Linzer Cupcakes

I first saw the idea for these cute cupcakes in a magazine at my dentist’s office, of all places.  Right after I saw them, my name was called to go in so I didn’t get more than a passing glance.  And then of course on my way out I was just so overjoyed to be done (and dentist-free for another 6 months until my next check-up!) that I was preoccupied with getting out of there at warp speed, so these cute cupcakes completely slipped my mind.  (Which is just as well really…I would have felt a little weird rooting around (horrible pun, I know) for a sugary recipe at the […]...
