Healthy Chocolate Truffles

Healthy Truffles 3 (1 of 1)

So, don’t judge me or anything, but these chocolate truffles were the only thing to come out of my kitchen this weekend (and, if we’re being technical/honest, all last week). I meant to make tons of other yummy stuff so that we’d have leftovers for lunch this week – Carla Hall’s hot chicken, kale/beet/goat cheese toasts, pigs-in-a-blanket (for football…read more »

Unicorn Tears

Guys, my glassware/bar ware habit is getting out of hand. Even after donating like 4 boxes of stuff to Good Will, I am quickly running out of space (read: have already run out of space but am in denial) to store all of the new glasses and bottles I keep buying. My most recent purchase?…read more »

DIY Flavored Extracts

Guys. Are y’all as excited about DIY foodie holiday gifts as I am? I don’t know what’s going on with me this year, but I have literally flagged every single DIY food-related article I’ve run across online (damn you, Buzzfeed). Flavored butters, cupcakes in a jar, mulled wine kits, homemade nutella…so cute, so practical, so…read more »

Classic Thumbprint Cookies, Revisited

It’s almost Christmas, which can only mean one thing – time to make a billion cookies. Sugar cookies, gingerbread cookies, peppermint cookies, hot cocoa cookies…so many cookies to choose from, so little time to cram them into my mouth. Nom nom nom, cookie cookie cookie. In my family, the only type of cookie that matters…read more »

Charlene’s Red Velvet Cupcakes

The first time I made red velvet cake was in back in law school, around the time I started this blog. It was my friend Jill’s birthday, and red velvet was her favorite, so I decided to surprise her with a homemade birthday cake. I hadn’t made a lot of non-box mix cakes at that…read more »

Sauteed Garlic Bacon Brussel Sprouts

Can we all just take a minute to process the fact that brussel sprouts grow on stalks? Like, big, thick branches covered with fat little sprout bulbs! Did you know that? I definitely did not. I sort of always assumed that the brussel sprouts I saw in the grocery store just….grew out of the ground that…read more »

OREO Cookie Ball Snowmen

A few weeks ago Yummly asked me if I wanted to be part of their OREO holiday campaign. To participate, all I had to do was come up with a fun, festive treat using Oreo’s classic cookie ball recipe. I was immediately on board because (1) I love OREOs, and (2) what’s not to love…read more »

Stove Top Chili Bread Boats

Dan’s lunchtime eating habits are laughably predictable. Tell me what day of the week it is, and I’ll know exactly what he’s having for lunch. Monday? Buffalo chicken wings from a place near his office with 10 cent wings on Mondays. Tuesday? Chili. Wednesday? Chili. Thursday? Chili again. Friday? If you were thinking chili, you’d…read more »

Crockpot Honey Garlic Chicken

You know that scene in Bridget Jones’ Diary when she’s sad-drinking alone in her apartment and starts scrounging around her fridge because she’s hungry from all the drinking and all that’s in there is a moldy block of cheese? That has been my life for the past few weeks, minus the drinking.  For no particular…read more »

Apple Pie Mummy Slices

Continuing my tradition of making adorable, spooktacular Halloween treats, I present you…apple pie mummy slices. Yup. Apple slices seasoned with sugar and cinnamon, then individually wrapped with thin strips of pie crust. So cute, so delicious, and so easy to eat. Seriously, these things are two, maybe three bites at most – you eat one, reach…read more »
