Nutella Croissant Casserole

You may think you know casseroles. “Sure, sure,” you say. “A little cream of mushroom soup here, a big handful of cheddar cheese there, and, um, aren’t canned green beans supposed to be involved somehow?” No. Well, yes. But also, NO, because: gross. This casserole, my casserole? That I’m sharing today? It contains zero cheese,…

Brown Butter Heart Cookies

Happy Valentine’s Day! I like you guys. I made you cookies. I know what you’re thinking: What kind of loser posts a Valentine’s recipe on the day itself? (Way harsh, Tai…but accurate.) If I were any kind of legitimate food blogger, I would have an editorial calendar. I would plan things in advance. I would…

Edible Gifts: Hot Chocolate Truffles and Peppermint Swirl Marshmallows

  I got it into my head to make homemade gifts for Christmas this year. I know. I KNOW. Busy people with babies zooming around their feet like caffeinated chihuahuas should give up any pretense of Martha Stewart-ism and just buy their loved ones pretty candles or something. But I couldn’t help myself. I call…

We bought our Christmas tree this past weekend! Now my house is officially 73% cheerier, 45% good-smellier, 26% baby-endangeringer, and 100% pine-needlier than it was before. I love, love, love walking into the front room and seeing our tree decked out with glowing lights and sparkling ornaments. If there was a way to hug the…

Sugar Cookie Pinwheels

Happy Halloween! You may be wondering why I’m sharing a Halloween cookie with you today, when you have next to no chance of actually making them on Halloween. Well, friends, it’s call “procrastination” and “poor time management.” Stick around awhile and you’ll find plenty of both. On the bright side, these sugar pinwheel cookies don’t…

Chocolate Cockroaches

If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably said to yourself, “Self, Halloween candy is all well and good, but I wish it was grosser. I’m sick of all this candy that looks delicious. Give me something that looks nasty!” Your wish is my command. These charmingly disgusting chocolate cockroaches couldn’t be simpler: pecans (or dates)…

Easter Egg Doughnuts

Happy day-before-Easter! By now you might already have OD’d on Cadbury eggs. Or you may be completely sick of looking at cutesy Easter goodies. Or you may be one of those rare organized creatures I have heard so much about—but never encountered in the wild—who is so organized, you already have your Easter feast completely…
