Chocolate Truffle Peppermint Crunch Cookies

I’ve heard a rumor that it’s cookie season. I’ve also heard that it’s peppermint season, and gift-giving season, and “calories, shmalories” season. Huzzah! I made these Chocolate Truffle Peppermint Crunch Cookies as part of the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap. It’s a fun blogging event organized by Lindsay and Julie, and the concept is simple:…

Cranberry White Chocolate Sweetie Pies

My dad was the pie master in my family growing up. For a large man, he sure had the delicate touch with pie dough, and his crusts were always a buttery, flaky delight. After pressing the dough into the pans, he would roll the scraps of dough into “sweetie pies,” our name for little hand…

Thank you to JOLLY TIME Pop Corn and Kitchen PLAY for sponsoring this post! I don’t know if this aspect of my personality comes through on the blog, but I am not a “less is more” sort of girl. (I imagine regular readers might have guessed this about me, however.) It’s not uncommon for me…

Banana Meringue Cake with Cinnamon-Sour Cream Ganache

Riddle me this: why do bananas only have a 2-hour window in which they are the perfect texture? I buy them slightly green, and they stay slightly green for days and days. If I try to eat them early, they’re hard and astringent and barely sweet. Then all of a sudden every single banana in…

Marbled Easter Egg Truffles

Happy Monday! …Just kidding, there’s no such thing as a happy Monday, but wishing everyone a “Middling Monday” just didn’t have the same ring to it. At my house we’re still recovering from a crazy weekend  that included my son’s birthday party (yay) and yet another ear infection (boo). I have some fun Easter desserts in…

Caramelized White Chocolate Truffles

This is a game changer. In the past, I’ve always tolerated white chocolate as “that other chocolate which is not nearly as good as the dark stuff, but which pairs nicely with raspberries and can be used to make mousses when you want other flavors to shine, and which is legitimately delicious in macadamia nut cookies.” Okay,…

Raspberry White Hot Chocolate

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…

Hazelnut White Hot Chocolate

Brace yourselves, bunnies, and get your rotten tomatoes ready. Things are about to get whiny. See, it has been cold in Los Angeles this past week. Seriously. The city is freaking out. And yes, I can hear you rolling your eyes from here, and yes, I am dodging those tomatoes you are so unkindly pitching…
