pop! goes my summer: biscoff popsicles

pop! goes my summer: biscoff popsicles

July 29th, 2015

Warning: yogurt ahead. I say this because, well, yogurt? It’s my food kryptonite. Yes, I’ve used it in cakes, salad dressings, cookies and even pizza dough. But just straight up eating it? Like, with a spoon? Step back. Waaaay back (anyone here feel the same? Please tell me I’m not the only one). But as […]

pop! goes my summer: buttered popcorn popsicles

July 22nd, 2015

And they’re just as good as they sound. I was both inspired by, and skeptical of the concept of a salted, buttered popcorn popsicle. But Erica Rax’s photos – and even just the prospect of these being a success – were enough to make me succumb. And I’m so, so glad I did. The base for these pops […]

July 8th, 2015

Yes, you read correctly: S’MORES POPSICLES. If you were with me last summer, you may recall the “Great S’mores Popsicle Fail” of 2014. But I was determined to get it right. And oh, I got it right. And maybe even better. Layers of vanilla ice cream, graham cracker crust (!!) and charred marshmallows (thank you, […]

d.i.y.: homemade magic shell

July 7th, 2015

If I had known how easy it is to make your own magic shell – well, I would have done it a loooong time ago. While not a huge fan of chocolate, I love it frozen – and I especially love it frozen over ice cream, a la the shell. Many (many!) recipes abound for […]

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 […]

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, […]

But here in New York we have skipped right over spring, experiencing hot, muggy, August-like days. And I’m loving it. The Siberia-winter we just finished did us ALL […]
