Ginger Carrot Muffins with Dulce de Leche

Ginger Carrot Muffins with Dulce de Leche

As you may know from my last post, I tend to over buy fresh veggies and herbs. I am constantly throwing out bunches of cilantro, killing every basil plant I get my hands on, and trying to use shriveled up ginger roots. Well no more I say! I have recently discovered Dorot’s frozen garlic and […]

Balsamic Strawberry Tiramisu

Balsamic Strawberry Tiramisu-No Bake!

I am a sucker for good deals, and tend to stock up a bit too much. Now this is great for items that have a long shelf life, however for items such as produce, not so much. That’s why when awesome sales come along like Whole Foods Market’s one day only sale on organic strawberries, […]

Did you know that burnt (and I mean charred) items whiten your teeth? Well, at least that was my excuse following the first year I received my grill. I burnt everything! It was quite the joke in my house.   Wanna know what is even funnier? We have totally acquired a taste for burnt things. […]

Gluten Free Cinnamon Stars

Gluten Free Cinnamon Stars

After almost 11 years of marriage my husband knows how to push my buttons. The thing that urks me more than anything is when he throws out the back-handed complement “This is really good, but it is not my mom’s.” I then instantly increase in height and muscle mass, my skin color turns green, and […]

I admit it, I have fallen into the craze of the book series Fifty Shades of Grey. I wasn’t sure I would like it, but once I moved past the all of the sex, it is quite an intriguing story of love. A word of caution though, do not start this book in public. I […]
