pop! goes my summer: paloma popsicles

July 3rd, 2015

We’re baa-aack! I’ve been dreaming (literally) of popsicles all this long winter long – and I’m super excited that summer is officially here, along with a whole summer’s worth of pops to share! More booze! More stripes! And I’m kicking things off with these pretty Paloma pops! I had my first Paloma here a few years ago, […]

June 26th, 2015

Yeah – so I guess THIS was not my longest post, ever. This one is. And it’s TOTALLY worth it. Since I started making the Birthday Layer Cake from the incredible Milk Bar cookbook, I’ve been dying to try another one. I love the use of the cake ring, the different layers and textures of crumb […]

cookie jar: homemade fig newtons

June 1st, 2015

I don’t know about you, but there are definitely certain foods that say “summer” to me. Specifically, “summer at the beach”. Peaches. Cut-up cantaloupe. Chocolate chip cookies. Turkey/swiss  sandwiches (with mustard AND mayo). Iced tea. Cape Cod potato chips. And Fig Newtons. I will never pass up a Fig Newton at any time of year, […]

A few months ago my friend Deirdre tagged me in a Facebook post announcing a contest she thought I should enter – The Infatuation Bake Sale. Entries were to be submitted via Instagram, and twenty four bakers would be selected to create their winning desserts for the day of the sale. All proceeds from ticket sales would […]

on mothers. and cake.

May 7th, 2015

Last week was exceptionally “mom-centric” for me. As I mentioned in my guilt bars post, I spent a few days with 6 dear friends of mine from all over the globe. Though we initially met through blogging, many have since turned to other creative pursuits. But we still remain “The Ladies”, and still remain close […]

cookie jar: triple layer "guilt" bars

April 30th, 2015

Okay – here’s what they’re really called: But somehow “Guilt Bars” feels right, right about now. See, one would think that living with a food blogger would mean an endless and vast array of amazing, mouthwatering treats parading through the kitchen.

April 16th, 2015

If you were to ask me what I thought my most “popular” post was, I’d probably reply with one I was particularly proud of.

the only matzo granola you'll ever need!

April 2nd, 2015

Okay – I just couldn’t think of a better title for this post. My apologies, but I’m in the thick of my annual freaking out over having enough snacks and goodies to last the week of Passover – when one cannot bake or cook with flour or any other traditional leavening agents. Finding great snacks […]
