Chocolate Profiteroles with Fresh Mint Chip Ice Cream

Chocolate Profiteroles with Fresh Mint Ice Cream | From SugarHero.com

I was shopping in my favorite Armenian market a few weeks ago, and I noticed they were having a monster sale on fresh mint. Four big bunches for 99 cents! Beat that, Whole-Foods-That-Sells-A-Tiny-Sprig-For-$3! So of course I snatched up four bunches and then Insta-bragged about the great deal. I was feeling pretty smug with my…

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Are you wearing green? Gleefully pinching friends and strangers alike? Stuffed full of cabbage? Drunk before noon? Reminiscing fondly about the time St. Patrick drove the snakes out of Ireland? What a weird, wonderful holiday this is. In keeping with this solemn celebration of Ireland’s patron saint, I have made you…

Oreo Peppermint Ice Cream Bonbons

As I write this, we are less than 8 hours away from leaving to see family for Christmas. I still have a few work-related things to finish, I haven’t even started packing, I’m pretty sure the wee one is coming down with an ear infection based on his yowling tonight, and oh yes, I’d like…

So I do a little co-op preschool with some friends, where we take turns hosting and planning lessons and bringing snacks.

I am such a sucker for a good deal. While shopping recently, I noticed that the store was selling 6 grapefruit for $1. Instantly my grapefruit alert levels skyrocketed from Complete Apathy to I Need Six Grapefruit IMMEDIATELY. I tossed them in my cart with Michael Jordan aplomb and gave myself giant pats on the…

Mint Chocolate Chip Layer Cake

Oy. Why is it so hard to bounce back after the holidays? Somehow the scent of an evergreen tree and a few twinkling lights signal to my brain that I should never have to work again. O, delicious laziness. Then the calendar changes, the supply of be-sprinkled Christmas cookies dries up, and cold hard reality…

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…
