Oktoberfeast: Apfelstrudel (Apple Strudel)

Oktoberfeast: Apfelstrudel (Apple Strudel)

Today I’m bringing you sweet, flaky apftelstrudel, the very best way to end Oktoberfeast! I still dream about the Bavarian strudel I ate at all hours of the day. Thin, flaky dough is brushed with melted butter, sprinkled with sugary toasted breadcrumbs, and topped with […]

Orange Liqueur Brownie Bites

Orange Liqueur Brownie Bites

I have to admit, there’s nothing healthyish about these decadent fudgy brownies topped with rich ganache. I don’t think we can count the delicious orange zest in both the brownies and the creamy chocolate topping, and we definitely can’t count the orange liqueur spike, but […]

Eclipse Blackout Cheesecake

Eclipse Blackout Cheesecake

What are your plans for the total solar eclipse crossing the States? Hands down, this must be the most exciting Monday of the year! Are you driving to the path of totality for the pure experience, or are you super-lucky enough to live there, or […]

Berry Kebabs with Honey Mascarpone

Berry Kebabs with Honey Mascarpone

Today is the summer solstice! Although the weather hasn’t seemed to care that this is the first official day of summer, I’m ready to roll straight into sultry dog days. An 800-square-foot house is the perfect reason to live outside as fully as possible and […]

Campfire S’mores Bars

Campfire S’mores Bars

Camping isn’t camping without a roaring fire, and a fire isn’t complete without s’mores! I love roasting over an open fire, but here’s an easy way to enjoy all the goodness of s’mores from your kitchen. Golden-brown-slightly-charred marshmallows melt over rich chocolate ganache with a […]

Chocolate Stuffed Raspberries

Chocolate Stuffed Raspberries

Okay, let’s start by acknowledging that this is definitely not a recipe. This is a silly-simple, scary-addictive snack that can stand on its own or blend perfectly on a cheese platter. Sometimes it’s nice to have a small bowl of delicious poppable bites, whether it’s […]

Sea Salt & Dark Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Clusters

Sea Salt & Dark Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Clusters

Because we haven’t had enough sweets yet, right? Right! I’d be a little embarrassed to call this a recipe if it wasn’t the holidays. It’s all of 4 ingredients. And they’re all in the title, because I have no restraint with words. But they’re such […]

Nutella Espresso Brownies

Nutella Espresso Brownies

Nutella. Espresso. Brownies! Yaaaaas. For sure there’s nothing better than chocolate and espresso… unless it’s chocolate and hazelnut. We’re talking flavor triple-threat to send us straight to decadent-fudgey-brownie heaven. I’ve been sneaking “just half a brownie” bites all day long. Somehow – totally unrelated, for sure […]

Fresh Blueberry Cobbler

Fresh Blueberry Cobbler

Easy, fresh, spoonable cobbler is great for summer get-togethers! None of the hassle of cutting pie pieces, no chocolate melting all over the place… although a big scoop of vanilla bean ice cream is definitely required (melting encouraged). Bring it along on picnics, to backyard […]

No-Churn 2-Ingredient Ice Cream

No-Churn 2-Ingredient Ice Cream

It’s finally all-the-way too-hot summertime! This means letting the pup get muddy in the creek and spending all the time grilling out at the pool and craving ice cream for breakfast-lunch-dinner. Let’s make our own real quick with whatever mix-ins we want! I remember this […]
