Maple Bacon Doughnut Muffins

After months of waiting, my book is finally available for pre-order on Amazon. Which is equal parts thrilling and terrifying. I still have momentary panics that everyone will hate it, more of my previously mentioned Too Hard On Myself situation. In spite of the fleeting dread, I’m so grateful that I had this opportunity to […]

Mini Brownie Sundaes

This is another one of my “it’s not a recipe” recipes. Because it’s not, it’s assembly instructions on how to assemble these cute little party desserts. I made these for the Forth, a huge hit with with the under 5 set, and small enough to be the perfect size for little fingers. The only thing […]

Matcha Strawberry Shortcakes with Lime Whipped Cream #CAStrawberryShortcakes

My first official assignment as a Brand Ambassador for California Strawberry Commission was to re-invent the strawberry shortcake.  After a brief stop on the idea of another chocolate strawberry shortcake, and possibly a lemon lavender version, I settled on a matcha version, something I hope is new to you all (I like to feel inventive!), […]

5 Minute Microwave Berry Cobbler

  You might hate me for this. Because, to be honest, I sort of hate myself for this. Unlike those Smarmy Mug Cakes, that we have all been desperate enough to attempt at least once in our lives, this is really good. So good, that I even found myself “recipe testing” it about 17 times […]

Food Craft: Spring Flower Pot Mini Muffins

Food Craft: Spring Flower Pot Mini Muffins

I like to play with my food. For some reason, it makes me less hungry. When I got these little suckers from a vendor at work, I had no interest in eating them. But I did want to play with them. Maybe it’s a commentary on how much food we waste in America, or maybe […]
