It’s no secret that a lot of the recipes I post here (especially the desserts) are a direct result of something I’m craving.  You know, those cravings that just don’t go away until you make the recipe that has been floating around in your head for a few days. These cupcakes are no different. I…

October is here! I wait all year for October… And it’s not just because my birthday is in October (though, that helps). Maddie’s birthday is in October, too. We’re cool like that. October means crunchy leaves, hot apple cider, and pumpkins. It also means it’s officially time for some serious fall baking. The weather is getting…

As I watched the molten sugar bubble away in my heavy sauce pan, I was writing this post in my head. I knew exactly what I wanted to say.  After all, the wonders of caramel never cease to amaze me. A few basic ingredients (all you really need is sugar… It will be hard caramel,…

I’ve been taking a bit of a break from my Friday Favorites lately… My regular Friday Favorites will return later this fall (post-baby!). But, lately I just haven’t had the time and energy to get through my RSS reader each week. I suppose being close to 9 months pregnant is a good excuse, but I…

I think pumpkin is one of the first flavors that comes to mind when I think of fall… Apples are a close second, especially when they are paired with spices like cinnamon and cardamom.  Add caramel into the mix, and I am a very happy girl.  So, naturally, I had to put my spiced caramel…

Spiced Caramel Sauce

I am having trouble holding off on the fall recipes this year.  I have to admit that I was breaking out the fall spices (and even some pumpkin from the freezer) a few weeks ago! I held off on sharing any recipes too early on, though… I didn’t want you to lose all respect for…

Caramel Stuffed Mexican Chocolate Cookies

A funny thing happens when I have conversations with other cooks and bakers (I will avoid the use of the word “foodie” even though I don’t really have much of a problem with it myself.)… No matter where the conversation starts (vacation plans, new jobs, etc.), we usually end up talking about food. More specifically,…

Mother’s Day is just around the corner… So, if you haven’t started thinking about something special to do for your mom on Sunday, I’d recommend doing it now.  Don’t say I didn’t remind you! Making breakfast for your mom is a popular option… And, who wouldn’t love being pampered with a special breakfast? Whether you…

You may have noticed that I’ve dropped the ball on Friday Favorites for the last few weeks…  I have been pretty busy and it just slipped my mind.  Imagine that! But, this week, I am happy to say that the Friday Favorites are back with a fresh set of picks from the lovely Aimée from…
