Mint Chocolate Chip Mousse Brownies

So I do a little co-op preschool with some friends, where we take turns hosting and planning lessons and bringing snacks. This week it was my turn to be in charge, so I made some healthy mini pumpkin muffins for the kids—you know, low sugar, whole wheat, entirely virtuous. You could practically see little nutritional…

Pistachio Chocolate Chunk Cookies

If ever there was a week for big ole cookies, it would be this week. These are “Heck yes, the weekend is coming!” cookies. These are also “I spent the last 48 hours fighting with my computer and my web host and now I want to swan dive into a giant pile of cookies and…

Halloween is over, but please don’t put away those sweet teeth just yet! We’re still in the midst of celebrating Dia de los Muertos (the Mexican holiday honoring those who have died), and here in Los Angeles, the party is happening all weekend. So why not take a break from eating that leftover Halloween candy…

Thanks to KitchenAid, Sears, and Mami Innovative Media for sponsoring this post. I finally cracked and opened my first pumpkin can of the season. I tried to stay strong, you guys.

It’s baaaaaack! Marzipan, my little almond paste friend found in the silver tube, is back in a big way today. It wasn’t enough that I churned it into almond ice cream and mixed it with coconut and fudge sauce earlier this summer. No, I had to go and pair it with a buttery almond crust…

You guys, I just had the best week EVER. Jason took Asher on a trip to visit the grandparents for a week, leaving me home alone. I repeat: HOME. ALONE. Picture me doing the patented Macaulay Culkin hands-to-cheeks pose, but instead of screaming in fear, I’m shrieking with delight.

Deep Fried S’mores

Gather round, everyone, and let’s bring it in for a big group hug. This recipe marks the temporary end of a sweet little tradition around here called Fry-Day.* For the past month-plus, I’ve shared a deep-fried dessert recipe every Friday. It’s been an absolute blast, and I may never look at a root beer float…
