November 24th, 2015

Full disclosure: This post is not for you. It’s for me. Well, for me and my lovely friend Sara. It all started out simply enough. I wanted to make something a little different for Noah’s 3rd birthday. I had always admired the pretty gum paste decorations Sara used on her cakes and cupcakes, so I […]

Got candy? Color me remorseful on November 1st. Every year. As I face down a trash can full of Butterfingers “fun size” wrappers I am reminded of why I don’t keep candy in the house. And it doesn’t help that Noah is not much of a sweets kid (I know – believe me, I know). […]

balls, bites & bars: coconut-almond butter energy bites

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 […]

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 […]

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!

May 21st, 2015

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.
