Four-Ingredient Nutella Cupcakes

Just when you thought Nutella couldn’t get awesomer, someone comes along with the idea of making cupcakes out of it. But not just any cupcakes–four-ingredient cupcakes. To be honest, I think these are actually even three-ingredient cupcakes, because one of the ingredients (chopped hazelnuts) is a garnish and could easily be omitted with no hard…

World Nutella Day: IT’S COMING

Halloween. Thanksgiving. Christmas. Sound like big holidays? WRONG. These holidays are nothing–nothing–compared to what’s coming up this Saturday. Friends, are you prepared? Giant 26-ounce jars of Nutella purchased? Pantry stuffed with baguettes, pretzels, bananas, and apples, all ready to be slathered with Nutella? Starvation diet enacted to compensate for the calorie bomb that is a…

TWD: Great Grains Muffins

In trying to articulate my feelings about the Great Grains Muffins for this week’s TWD recipe, I decided that it would be easiest to explain with a visual aid.* If you will please refer to the above figure, it is evident that my enjoyment of a food increases proportionally to the degree to which said…

Salted Caramel Bars

Jason & I are not one of those “twinny” couples who seem to belong together at first glance–in fact I think our relationship sometimes mystifies people who don’t know us very well. Although I think we’re pretty well matched in the important areas, it’s true that we’re opposite in many ways. I love to run…

Lemon-Mascarpone Layer Cake with Edible Flowers

Over Christmas break I stopped by to see my old high school friend Claire. As I was leaving, she offered me lemons from her overflowing tree. My first instinct was to decline, since I was staying with my parents and had no interest in shlepping random lemons back home with me in my already-overstuffed car….

TWD: Nutty Swirly Sour Cream Bundt Cake

I’m a little late posting this amazing bundt cake I made over the weekend, but I have a good excuse. Her name is Madeline, and she is verrrrrry distracting.

TWD: Lemon Poppyseed Muffins

Hello, little blog. It’s been awhile. You’ve probably missed me, since the last post was about New Year’s Eve and it’s now the middle of January. You’ve been sitting around feeling unfashionably behind the times. I’m sorry. I haven’t missed you too much, since I’ve been doing lots of traveling and LOTS of dessert eating….

TWD: Midnight Crackles

HAPPY NEW YEAR! How has this happened? I wasn’t even used to saying twenty-ten yet, and now we’re already on twenty-eleven. (Cue old-lady grumping about the passage of time and kids these days.) We had an exciting New Year’s Day. I’ll give you a hint: it involved giant dragons… …and marching bands… …and horned frogs…
