Chocolate Therapy Cake
Today I'm joining a talented group of ladies to help celebrate the fantastic flavors of Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream! This theme week is the brain child of Kristan and Shelly (they have the best ideas!) and they asked Peabody , Julie and I to pick out our favorite Ben and Jerry's flavors and recreate
My Mom's Cinnamon Rolls
When mother's day rolls around, I always feel a little stressed about how I'm going to honor my mom. She's a pretty amazing person. If you're in her line of sight, she'll become your mom, too - and not in a bossy, pushy kind of way, but in her own quiet way that says "I see you, and I'm going to
Mini Oreo Sprinkle Cakes
If these little party cakes look familiar, it's because they were inspired by this sprinkle cake I made a few years ago. The minute I spotted Birthday Cake Oreos (!) at the grocery store, I knew they were destined to crown little chocolate sprinkle cakes. I baked one inside each cake, too! A ...
SnoBall Cake Roll
I am a lover of all things pink coconut, (remember this ?) and spring is the time when it shows up in my baking the most. I blame the darling buds of May . Around here cherry trees are raining their pink petals down like snow. It's a magical sight, but the event is too short lived. I guess this ...
It's a rare occasion that I'll watch a movie from beginning to end without having to prop my eyelids open, but recently I did just that! I watched Amadeus again. It's been years since I first watched it, and I've loved it since. There's Salieri, shaking his fist at God and cursing his own ...
Giant Banana Split Ice Cream Sandwich
The only thing I can think of that's better than an ice cream sandwich, is a great big ice cream sandwich. I loved this treat as a kid, and never outgrew a fondness for melty ice cream sandwiched between chocolate cookies. This super-sized version is stuffed with banana split ice cream and the soft
Chilled Strawberry Bisque
Three years ago I developed a quirky little recipe called chocolate soup . It's a chocoholic's velvety dream come true and one of my favorite recipes to make on this blog. It's been published in a few magazines and in the Foodista Cookbook . Who knew a dessert SOUP would be so well received? ...
Homemade Marshmallow Ropes
I first saw marshmallow ropes a few years ago at a local specialty market and loved them instantly. They looked so colorful and fun sitting there on the shelf, I felt compelled to try making a homemade version, but back then the task was too daunting. I was ill-equipped. My previous marshmallow ...
Overloaded Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake
Cookie or cake? If I had to choose, I'd call it a cookie. It's a great big fluffy chocolate and peanut butter chip cookie that's baked in a 10-inch pan, piled with marshmallows, caramel and peanut butter cups, then sliced up like cake. It's so good that when I woke this morning, I stumbled ...
Ginger Ale Cupcakes and a Hey YoYo Giveaway!
Today I have a fun little giveaway with my favorite party supply shop - Hey YoYo ! Whenever I need a jolt of inspiration, I just hop on over to the online store to get a fix of kitsch and color. Amanda is the shopkeep, and she has an eye for the cutest cupcake papers, treat bags and partyware of
