Resolution Cookies (Everything But The Kitchen Sink!)

Cookie season, schmookie shmeason. In my world, cookies know no season. Here, cookies of all varieties remain damn tasty and appealing no matter that the month/weather/locale/whatever. And if I know you, and I think I do (I suspect you would not have clicked your way to a...

Vanilla-Rum Eggnog Marshmallows

Happy Eve of Christmas Eve, folks! How’s the holiday baking going? Are you buried in a pile of gingerbread men and cut-out cookies? If so, #jealous. TRUE or FALSE? There’s always room for one more Christmas treat. If you answered TRUE, you win! Yep, I’m squeezing one...

Satsuma & Hazelnut Cake

Hi! I’m here! I’m alive! There hasn’t been much time for baking and blogging around these parts lately, but I assure you it’s not for lack of jonesing for oven time. In the span of the last three weeks I’ve found myself in Palo Alto, Napa,...

Old-Fashioned Vinegar Pie with Blueberry Coulis

Perhaps it’s the pie baking class I took a couple of weeks ago, or the fact that Thanksgiving is just around the corner (likely both), but lately, I’ve had pie on the brain. Which, I’m also thinking should maybe be more of a permanent thing...

TUACA Cocktails Two Ways

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of TUACA Vanilla Citrus Liqueur  for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. Cocktails don’t often grace the pages of this blog. Not for lack of thought. Nor for lack of, ahem, research, if you will. It’s...

Pumpkin & Chocolate Chip Crumble Cake

Before last weekend, it had been far too long since I’d baked something. Like, three weeks too long. Now, I understand that for a normal person, that may seen like a perfectly reasonable, nay, healthy, interval of time to let pass between the baking, making and consumption...

Lemon Cake with Haupia Filling & Hibiscus Buttercream

Another year gone. Another birthday to celebrate. 28. Oy. Yep, today is my birthday. For much of my life, I had mixed feelings about birthdays -- I love the comfort and ritual around birthday traditions, and heck,  I really love to celebrate, except, I don’t so much love...
