Sweet Eats: Nutella Pie Pops

Sweet Eats: Nutella Pie Pops

Written by | filed under Eats + Sweets | 4 comments

It’s fair to say that I am basically obsessed with everything that Linda of Call Me Cupcake does. Her recipes and her photography are entirely inspiring and I could lose myself for hours on her blog. In fact, pretty soon I am planning to lose myself for hours in the kitchen making her Nutella pie pops in time to hand out for holiday gifts. Because, they look insanely delicious and they’re also adorable which is what I dub a win-win …

Sweet Eats: Thanksgiving Desserts

Written by | filed under Eats + Sweets, Entertaining Tips | 1 comment

I can’t believe how quickly Thanksgiving is approaching and, like every year at this time, I’ve got a mind for desserts this week. While I love a classic pumpkin or apple pie as much as the next girl, I also love switching it up and making something unexpected that still plays on seasonal flavors. I’m the resident Thanksgiving dessert girl in my family so cataloging delicious dessert recipes is kind of my thing. Here are just a few that have …

Sweet Eats: Lemon Ricotta Doughnuts

Sweet Eats: Lemon Ricotta Doughnuts

Written by | filed under Eats + Sweets | 0 comments

Lately I’ve had a slight obsession with wanting to make homemade doughnuts and bagels for the first time. I mean, talk about cold weather comfort food! Bagels straight from the oven? Perfectly sugared mini doughnuts? Now that’s some kind of heaven. So in a nutshell, you can expect that I’ll be trying these lemon ricotta doughnuts by Elephantine a whole lot sooner rather than later. They just feel like the perfect Sunday morning treat with a big cup of coffee, …

Happy Halloween Eats + Treats

Happy Halloween Eats + Treats

Happy Halloween, everyone! Is everyone gearing up for the festivities tonight? It’s going to be pretty low key around here. I’m thinking a bit of baking, lots of flickering candles, and scary movies while the trick or treaters make their rounds. If you’re marking the occasion at home, too, I thought I’d share a few of the spooky eats and treats that have caught my eye this week. Why not whip up something fun and celebrate in style? (Even if …

Sweet Eats: Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Sweet Eats: Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Written by | filed under Eats + Sweets | 3 comments

Turns out, I’ve blogged about these cookies before. Many many moons ago. Well, just shy of four years ago to be precise. They’re my go-to signature cookie. Absolutely fail proof and positively delicious. These are the cookies I whip up on a rainy Sunday afternoon (like I did this past weekend) and the cookies I make when I realize last minute that I need to bring a dish to pass to a party. They’re an easy crowd pleaser and they might just …

Sweet Eats: Blueberry Brie Galette

Sweet Eats: Blueberry Brie Galette

Written by | filed under Eats + Sweets | 3 comments

Seriously, friends. I may have just died and gone to pasty heaven. Could we please pause a moment in homage to this amazing blueberry brie galette? I kind of love galettes. They’re like tasty little pie/tart confections that skip all the fuss of fancy crust in lieu of a little pocket of deliciousness. And make no mistake about it. Blueberry paired with brie is one of the best flavor combinations going, if you ask me. So you know this is …

Sweet Eats: Glazed Chocolate Cake Donut Holes

Written by | filed under Eats + Sweets | 1 comment

Despite my undying passion for baked goods, I’m not big into donuts. I’m not sure why, but they’re just kind of not my thing. That said, there’s an exception to every rule and the exception to my no-donut rule is glazed chocolate cake donuts. They’re just delicious. These glazed chocolate cake donut holes are right up my alley and I can’t help but think that I should probably try my hand at making a batch. Or maybe you want to …

Sweet Eats: Profiteroles + Chocolate

Written by | filed under Eats + Sweets | 2 comments

Ahhh, profiteroles. These sweet treats are some kind of heaven. I’m sitting in the Charleston airport this morning waiting on my flight back to Syracuse and I am here to tell you what, I am craving some profiteroles and chocolate sauce right now like you wouldn’t believe. I’ve never made profiteroles before, but I am thinking I’d like to give it a whirl. While more intricate than whipping up some tasty cookies, the pay off is all in the puffy …

Sweet Eats: Brown Butter Oatmeal Chunk Cookies

Written by | filed under Eats + Sweets | 2 comments

While it’s still hot and humid this week, I know crisp fall days are just around the corner. With the chill in the air will also come a renewed vigor to spend more time in the kitchen. Something about cooking and baking is so joyful for me. Chopping, sifting, mixing, stirring. It brings a quiet happiness to my soul. And, cookies. Cookies also bring happiness to my soul. Take these brown butter oatmeal chunk cookies for instance. They’re whispering all …

Sweet Eats: Root Beer Floats with Hot Fudge

Sweet Eats: Root Beer Floats with Hot Fudge

Written by | filed under Eats + Sweets | 3 comments

Root beer floats are about as classic as it gets. They remind me of being a kid when my parents owned an ice cream stand. We loved going there on the weekends and “helping out” in exchange for quarters for rounds of pinball and oversized root beer floats which we giddily slurped down. Maybe that’s why these root beer floats with homemade hot fudge just sound so good to me. They’re nostalgic and a reminder of carefree childhood days, but …
