Tasty Tuesday: Semi-Homemade Chocolate Croissant

I’m a cook and baker by birth. I come from a long line of women who spent hours in their kitchens, slaving over their stoves and ovens to provide their loved ones with delicious, homemade meals. It’s a tradition I am happy to uphold….

Tasty Tuesday: The Easiest Chocolate Pie You’ll Ever Make in Your Life

I was originally going to post the recipe for my beef stew, but then I remembered that my beef stew is pretty boring* because I only like meat and potatoes and carrots in beef stock. And it never thickens right. I can never get…

Tasty Tuesday: An Attempt was Made

Okay, so, like I said at the beginning of this year’s Blogtober, some of my Tasty Tuesday treats would be things I’ve never attempted before. Maybe they’d come out bomb (like the ice cream filled cake pops) or maybe they’d be a total disaster….

Getting Healthy and Making Changes (Recipe Request)

Sunday Sweets: Mug Cake… from a box?

So, I was planning on making mini cupcakes, but while out shopping my mother and I found this interesting thing from Duncan Hines we’d never seen before. I’m sure by this point everyone has heard of mug cakes; take the ingredients, mix them in…

Sunday Sweets: Mini Chocolate Pie

So, while my mom and I were at Target the other day, I saw these little mini graham cracker pie crusts and thought, “Yes. Tiny personal pie. How could that possibly be a bad idea?” This was the best worst idea I’ve ever had.

Sundays are for Donuts

When I was a little kid–way back in the day when kids still went trick-or-treating and my dad still pretended he loved my mom and I had a semi-functional family–we used to have a tradition. Kind of. I always thought of it as a…
