Oreos That Beg To Be Swapped #HousefulOfCookies

We’re not talking the store bought brand.  However, these cookies are closely resembling the famous cookie.  They are of course completely homemade and from scratch.  I wish I could take credit for the recipe, but I myself received them in a past cookie swap from With Lovely.  If you ever thought that those black and […]

Harissa Roasted Walnuts #JustAddWalnuts

This post is compensated and sponsored by California Walnuts. For us there are a lot of must have dishes at Thanksgiving. However, not always being the head chef, which is silly because I am great at everything food, means that I have to think of foods to contribute to a partly planned meal. Depending on […]

Discover Granola

I don’t know why I waited so long to try my hand at granola. I guess I always thought it was pretty complicated and at times I’m not as patient as I should be in the kitchen, hence why I tend to burn bacon. So it’s weird that my kitchen patience isn’t tested by breadmaking […]

Templeton Rye Whiskey Truffles

I was asked a while ago if I might be interested in creating a chocolate truffle recipe using Templeton Rye Whiskey and two mystery Frontier spices.  While I was a little apprehensive about the mystery ingredients, I was still game to give it a try as everything goes with chocolate!  My mystery ingredients weren’t too […]

Oatmeal Sugar Cookies – #fbcookieswap

It’s time for me to share our annual entry into the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap of 2014!!  This is my second year participating and let me say getting 3 dozen cookies in the mail at the beginning of december is something I’m starting to look forward to.  You might be wondering what the Great […]

Ginger Pear Bundt Cake Featuring Olive Oils of Spain

This is a sponsored post.  All opinions are my own. Fall is a season which brings a peculiar light to our house.  No, not the kind of natural light but one of the artificial variety as finally the weather is chilled enough to allow for 24/7 oven access.  The light goes on and off depending […]

Peach French Buttercream Frosting

Yeah I’m still fascinated with southern peaches over here.  I’ve been eating a couple a day and thought wouldn’t fresh peach French buttercream frosting be amazing on a cake?  Who am I kidding?  I love cake just as much as frosting.  You never have to twist my arm to have either.  But there’s just something […]

Fresh Peach Focaccia

It’s finally peach season!  I adore peaches, lets not lie I adore most fresh fruit.  But there’s just something about a ripe juicy peach that screams baking to me.  Hence the foray into peach focaccia, I’ve been waiting and waiting for good southern peaches to make their way up here to Chicago so I could […]

Baking with NestFresh Eggs – Blueberry Sweet Rolls

NestFresh provided me with product and the option to host a giveaway.  All opinions are my own. By now y’all know I love sweet rolls in all shapes and forms.  If you’ve been following us on Instagram, you know I’ve been playing with different kinds of doughs and fillings.  It was only a matter of […]

Crock Pot Samoa Schnecken

Last week I attended my first BlogHer Food in Miami, it’s my second blogging conference but my first food blogging conference.  While there I met a few new brands, but also some I’m already working with like #HamiltonBeach.  Later this week, we’ll be giving away some Hamilton Beach mixers…..but I digress.  I didn’t really stop […]

Jumbo Crumbly Corn Muffins

I absolutely love corn muffins and corn bread!  I’m always changing my recipe though to make it better.  I use some slightly different ingredients like brown sugar and oatmeal flour to make a moist just sweet enough muffin.  I adore using oatmeal flour to make my baked goods moist.  It’s such a simple thing, but […]

Boozy Bimbo Blondies

If you’ve yet to notice….we like booze in our baking.  I feel it just adds a little something.  Not necessarily a boozy kick mind you, but the amazing flavor of a good liquor can do wonders for your baking.  Don’t be afraid to try a little booze because the actual alcohol bakes off when you […]
