So long, January, and don’t let the door hit you on the way out! I’m thrilled to bid farewell to this dreary month with a pretty pink drink. Raspberry White Hot Chocolate marks the end of Hot Chocolate Week—where “week” is loosely defined as “that period of time that shall not conform to a calendar…

Raspberry Almond Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Great news, guys! The universe gave my plan to get more sleep a giant cosmic high-five. Shortly after I posted about my resolution to sleep more and work less, I was stricken with the flu-flu, which is the clever name I just coined for when the influenza-flu and the stomach-flu get together and have a…

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…

This one’s going to be short and sweet, because, hey! It’s Saturday! Ain’t nobody got time for reading long meandering blog posts. There are lawns to mow and trails to hike and friends to brunch with, or maybe just couches to nap on—whatever floats your Saturday boat. No judgment here. I did want to pop…

Sing with me, friends! “It’s Fry-Day, Fry-Day, gotta fry things on Fry-Day! Everyone’s frying for the weekend!

Chocolate-Covered Raspberries

Move over, chocolate-covered cherries. There’s a new chocolate-covered candy king: chocolate-covered raspberries. Think about it: why should cherries have all the fun? Because if we’re being honest, maraschino cherries are waaaay less fun than fresh raspberries. They’re painfully sweet, barely related to their fresh cherry cousins, and are comprised of approximately 68% red dye, 30%…
