Decadent Chocolate Raspberry Bundt Cake

Chocolate Raspberry Bundt Cake

Are you beginning to see a theme with my latest recipes? I seem to be a bit obsessed with bundt cakes these days! I just love the simplicity of them, especially this Chocolate Raspberry Bundt Cake. You literally through all of the ingredient in the bowl, stir, and pour into the pan. No need to […]

Lemon Lime Madeleines

Lemon Lime Madeleines

I have so many lemons and limes on my fruit trees that literally everything that we have been consuming includes citrus. Not that it bothers me though, as lemon/lime is one of my favorite ingredients! Madeleines are a delicious “cookie” that are super simple to make and they store beautifully. They have quickly become one […]

Easter French Macarons

Easter French Macarons

French Macarons are one of my favorite cookies to make for Easter. They add such a beautiful array of colors to my dessert table. I usually make quite a few batches in different flavors/pastels two weeks before Easter, then freeze them until the day of the party. It is always nice to have one less […]

Vintage Cow Girl Party

Last weekend we finally threw my daughter’s birthday party. It was only about a month late 😉 Thankfully, I have an insanely creative mother to whom I can simply tell the theme to and she goes wild. For the last year, we have been planning a rainbow/unicorn party. Then, as we were going through the […]

Pumpkin Spice Macarons

It took me quite a while to master the art of baking a macaron. I had quite a few baking mishaps before actually getting it right. In retrospect, I think that my failures were all due to me over thinking the process because it really isn’t that difficult. Or perhaps it is due to my […]

Strawberry Pavlova with Honey Lavender Whipped Cream

Last week the kids and I went strawberry picking. After, we were invited over to my mom’s house for a small luncheon with some aunts and cousins. Now let me tell you about my mom. She can throw a Hampton’s style party, with a farmer’s budget and 24 hours notice (and me cooking of course). […]

Peach French Macaron Perfection With The Eat Smart Scale

Peach French Macaron Perfection With The Eat Smart Scale

I have mentioned this before, but I will mention it again, when making French Macarons, it is imperative to measure your ingredients. This digital kitchen scale by Eat Smart does an AWESOME job. It weighs up to 11 pounds so I can easily place a bowl on top, tare it, and than measure my ingredients […]

The Peanut Butter Addiction

The Peanut Butter Addiction

*Disclaimer- This is not for the weak stomach Growing up, there was a permanent condiment on our kitchen table during every meal. My dad would find a use for it no matter what we were eating. You would probably never guess it, but that condiment was peanut butter. He would put it on everything (and […]

The Hawaiian French Macaron

The Hawaiian French Macaron

If you haven’t yet noticed, I love making French Macarons. I think it is because they are so incredibly temperamental that if you do the slightest thing wrong, your whole batch is a flop. A tiny bit of egg yolk…your egg whites don’t stiffen, or if you over beat them the end cookie will result in […]

To Fire Or Not To Fire?

To Fire Or Not To Fire?

I have two sous-chefs and one taste taster in my kitchen. All play a vital role in the outcome of my recipes. Lets start with my taste tester. He does an awesome job at testing everything…except vegetables, soups, or anything healthy. He is such a good tester that sometimes I will find him taking extra […]

The Luck of the Irish

St. Patty’s Day is fast approaching, and while I do enjoy a green beer every year, this year I wanted something else green. Let’s face it, a green macaron is so much more luxurious! With the amount of food coloring needed to obtain a good strong color, I can guarantee you that you will be […]

Yesterday was a bittersweet day for me. After multiple failed attempts, I finally achieved the perfect French Macaron. It was crunchy on the outside and gooey on the inside…absolutely majestic! Then the reality set in: no matter how orgasmic this cookie tastes, the way it looks on my hips doesn’t have the same effect. Solution…bake […]
