Today I have some fun things to share with you! I was chosen to participate in OXO’s Cookies for Kids’ Cancer Bake a Difference campaign this year. They partnered with Dorie Greenspan as she prepares to release her new cookbook Dorie’s Cookies in October. So, lucky for me, I received a box of awesome baking […]

PB-Cinna-Choco Energy Bites

I have a massive sweet tooth. I think its genetic, so I blame my dad. But seriously, I can’t make it through the day without some sort of dessert. I’ve made a few different types of these no-bake energy bite cookies before and they can do the trick for me from time to time. Now […]

Red, White & Blue Vanilla Bean Cupcakes with Vanilla Bean Buttercream

Happy 4th of July! Even though the weather is a bit gloomy in Pittsburgh this year, this is still one of my favorite holidays.

Strawberry Rhubarb Hand Pies

Bite sized pies!  They are adorable, and tasty.  Less work than making a full sized pie, but tastes just as good.  Winning.  This Handheld Pies cookbook is so fun…I’d like to make everything in there. My pies leaked some of the filling, so they weren’t as plump and juicy.  Next time I’ll have to be […]

Buttermilk Pie

Lauren made this delicious pie for Mother’s Day brunch and I just had to share.  It was really delicious.  We had no idea what to expect, but it was the perfect balance of sweetness and creaminess.  It was perfect with a plate of fresh berries…we skipped the whipped cream.  We all felt it was a […]

Vanilla Cardamom Rhubarb Crumble

I love when rhubarb appears in the grocery store.  It’s just so pretty.  And it’s a sure sign that spring has arrived.  The flavor of it when it bakes with strawberries inside a pie is divine…mmmm, I can almost taste it. When my mom brought over a big bunch of rhubarb last week, I couldn’t […]

Buttermilk Birthday Cake with Salted Caramel Buttercream Frosting

Matt’s birthday was last month, and despite the fact that life was chaotic that week, I made up for my negligence with a yummy cake a few days late.  He claims that his favorite cake is plain vanilla with store bought chocolate frosting…yes the kind from a jar.  He has a wife that makes from-scratch […]

Carrot Cake Cupcakes

Even though I made these cupcakes for Easter Sunday, I still think they are worth sharing.  I couldn’t eat carrot cake all of the time, but in the springtime I really do love it.  I totally adore anything that has cream cheese icing on it, if we’re being honest.  The cake stays really moist and […]
