Nutella Crunch Cake Balls

WEDDING WEEK IS FINALLY HERE!!! No, not mine -- my best friend Taylor's!! Who you may also know as Miss Longbotton and/or recognize from from this post about the surprise proposal or this post about the bachelorette, or maybe even this post about our roomie love and how it began, long before a tall, handsome journalist-type started sneakily refilling her candy bowl at work. I'm in full blown my-bestie-is-getting-married-shouldn't-I-be-on-vacation-all-week? mode. All day dreaming about … [Read More]



Pecan Pralines // A Bachelorette in The Big Easy

New Orleans. NOLA. N'awlins. The Big Easy. Crescent City. A strange bird, by any name. I recently spent a whirlwind weekend in New Orleans. I was there for a bachelorette with my closest friends -- the best way to see any city, I think. The … [Read More]


Maple, Bacon & Buttermilk Ice Cream Sandwiches

Here I sit, after 13 hours of travel to get to New York, sipping a cup of hot coffee and gazing out over the majestic Keuka Lake. Every window in the house is open, there's a cool breeze tickling my skin and a bowl of freshly-picked, perfectly ripe … [Read More]

Drunken Millionaire Ice Cream

Hello there, strangers! I hope you had a fantastic long weekend. I sure did! For me, this year's was far more tame than Memorial Days of the past. Much less booze and much more house hunting - for a friend, not me - a surefire sign that yes, I … [Read More]


Olive Oil & Sea Salt Brownie Cookies

These cookies are not new to Butterlust. I posted the recipe last August - just a couple short months after I began experimenting with a DSLR camera (HELLO, iPhone photos!). And while I'm still a photo-novice (so much to learn!), it's pretty easy to … [Read More]


Coconut Bananas Foster Bread with Greek Yogurt Glaze

I really don't know how to gracefully introduce this topic so I'm just going to come out and tell you: I got my first black eye. I'm currently sporting a slightly puffy eyelid, blushed a ripe purple and twinged with that shade of … [Read More]


S’mores Cake Balls

It was a crazy weird mostly normal weekend, y'all. For me, at least. Joy lost (and found) her cat. (Note to Tron-Kitt: You should definitely never run away again. Your mom is the coolest). Molly went all out little-house-on-the-prarie on us … [Read More]
