Raspberry Nanaimo Pops

We did it, pumpkins! We’ve made it through Thanksgiving and are now hurtling toward Christmas. Soon all the food blogs will be peppermint-this and gingerbread-that (including yours truly, natch) but before we jump to decking the halls, I want to share this sweet little lollipop recipe with you. Raspberry Nanaimo Pops are a variation on…

Cookies and Cream Oreo Bars

You might be familiar with Captain Ahab from Moby-Dick, driven mad by his search for the white whale. The story’s all well and good, in an English Literature 201 sort of way, but believe me when I tell you that that guy’s obsessiveness has nothing on me and my own hunt for an unattainable object…

Dude Food Magic Bars

This coming Sunday is Father’s Day, to which I say, psssh. In my house we’re celebrating Father’s Week. If you’re not familiar with this made-up custom, Father’s Week is a magical week when Jason gets a new gift every single day leading up to Father’s Day. This sounds super fancy and over-the-top, until I tell…

Passion Fruit Bars

I’ve mentioned before that I’m a little obsessed with passion fruit. The flavor, the concept—even the name. When I hear “passion fruit” in my head, it’s invariably being said by someone with a sultry accent, all slow esses and coy head tilts and eyebrow wiggles. It’s a name that’s basically begging you to love it,…

Red Velvet Bars With Homemade Sprinkles

So, what’d you do this weekend? I didn’t do anything special…went to the gym, did some work, avoided doing chores, had dinner at a friend’s, made my own sprinkles… You know, because making your own sprinkles is a completely sane activity. A good use of valuable weekend down-time. A great way to relax and unwind…

Meringue-Topped Blondies

Meringue has never done much for me. I could take or leave a lemon meringue pie, and those crunchy meringue “cookies” that come in big tubs? Get those out of here and quit insulting me. But with this blondie recipe, I think I’ve finally found a legitimate use for meringue. It turns out that when…

Peanut & Pretzel SuperBars (For the Super Bowl)

I am the furthest thing you can imagine from a legitimate sports fan. My “sport” of choice, long-distance trail running, has a total of maybe 3 premiere races and a dozen big names, none of which are recognizable to more than a few hundred running nerds like myself. My very favorite thing about my husband…

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bars

Halloween is over and I barely remember it. I didn’t get to go trick or treating, I didn’t get to dress in that “sexy manatee” costume I had planned, and I didn’t eat nearly as many pumpkin-flavored goods as I wanted to. October was a bust and I want a do-over. Fortunately we still have…
