Bacon Week 2014: Bacon Cinnamon Rolls

Welcome back to Bacon Week – today we have something that was a little more experimental than yesterday’s bacon-wrapped asparagus: bacon cinnamon rolls! I had a lot of fun with this recipe, although to be perfectly frank it did not turn out quite as well as I was hoping.  I know I say this every year […]

Grandma G’s Kolache – Take 2!

A few years ago (3, in fact!) I took it upon myself to re-create my Grandma’s kolache recipe.  For details you can read the post itself; get some edumacation! But one thing conspicuously missing from that post was how the kolache itself actually turned out.  The answer?  Enhhhh…. >.> So this week I made it […]

Trick-Or-Treat Cupcake Recipe

You didn’t think I’d just do that lame round-up post for Halloween recipes did you? Actually, I did for awhile. >.>  But in the end I decided to damn the torpedoes (and my removed wisdom teeth – good times) to try an idea that popped into my head.  This one in particular, there being Halloween […]

Caramel Macchiato Ice Cream Recipe

This is a recipe I’ve had rolling around in my brain for awhile now.  I recently realized I had all the right ingredients floating around my apartment, and since it’s still summery enough to whip up some ice cream, I got right on it! Back before I was drinking plain ‘ole joe on a daily […]

Easy Dahi Murghi Recipe

It’s time for another delicious recipe from Julie Sahni’s Classic Indian Cooking.  This is “Dahi Murghi”, or “Fragrant Yogurt-Braised Chicken”.  Unlike the Easy Murgh Masala I made previously, this is yogurt-based instead of tomato-based, so has a thicker, creamier sauce.  Again…you’ll have to excuse my inability to take a halfway-decent picture.  Any suggestions on doing this better? […]

Brown Sugar Vanilla Ice Cream Recipe

Somehow I’ve gone the entire  summer without making any ice cream.  This is a shame and a travesty, and I should be ashamed of myself (it’s bad and I should feel bad).  Here, let me make it up to you: I didn’t have much time to do any cooking blogging during July, so I’m a bit […]

Easy Murgh Masala Recipe

Heyo, lookit me, 2 posts in 2 weeks.  The pigs, they must be flying! Actually, I’m just slowly getting back into the swing of cooking regularly as opposed to eating out all the time.  Here’s one of my latest successes: I’m a bit sad that this picture doesn’t appropriately elucidate how delicious this recipe is or, […]

Lemon Tea Cookie Recipe

Hellooooo my darlings!  It’s been awhile, but you know what?  IT’S MY BLOG I CAN DO WHAT I WANT! …but no really I’m sorry it’s been so long.  So many things going on!  But here.  Here’s an apology for my absence: These aren’t particularly pretty to look at, but these things are good – especially […]

Cinnamon Swiss Meringue Buttercream Recipe

I’d been waiting until I had an actual recipe to associate with this piece of news, BUT I HAVE NEWS. My brother and his girlfriend?  THEY ARE ENGAGED!  And what’s else is that they’ve asked your truly to make their wedding cake!  You guys know what this means, right? The WeddSplosion is back!  AND THIS […]

Bacon Week 2013: Bacon-Wrapped Meatloaf

I have somehow made it through my entire cooking career (vast as it is!) thus far without a single recipe from Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman herself.  How is this possible?  I have no idea. Let’s ameliorate this shizz! The Pioneer Woman has a bacon-wrapped meatloaf recipe entitled, “My Favorite Meatloaf.”  I love this; the […]

1-Loaf Pumpernickel Bread Recipe

In preparation for Bacon Week 2013, I wanted to have a loaf or two of some hearty bread to go along with the “Game of Thrones” theme.  I’m pretty sure no one in the GoT series ever uses a plate…it’s always trenchers and slathering things over loaves of bread.  A week of bacon and eating […]

Frosted Baked Pumpkin Doughnuts

It’s funny…I don’t know if any of my other fellow food bloggers do this, but sometimes I’ll actually write half of a blog post based solely on the idea I have for food to make.  I’ll get inspired by something I saw on another blog or from a cookbook and have burst of creativity; I’ll […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Ugly Cake

Earlier this month my coolio friend Adam had a birthday party.  It was all grilling, blue skies, light breezes and good times.  Oh, and did I mention delicious but incredibly ugly cakes? Last year I made him a pretty similar chocolate-peanut butter cake, but this time I found a different recipe I wanted to try. […]

Strawberry Cream Pie Recipe

Recently my parents dog-sat for me while I was gone for an entire day doing an Atlanta-based scavenger hunt.  As a thank you for them doing me the favor on such short notice, I ran to Google for ideas on a recipe.  Something new, something light and Spring-y.  Something…not difficult.  Since I’d made the Lemon […]
