Blackberry Sweet Rolls

I love how you can literally walk anywhere and find wild blackberries growing this time of year.  Side of the highway, in the park, beside the baseball field. And during this time you can also find people with buckets picking berries to load their fridges and freezers. As a child we would feast on them…

Théasty New York-Style Bagels

Texan and ours first date was in New York City and since then, it’s held a special place in my heart (we got engaged there too!). I thought I would share one of my new favorite things to make that reminds me of the big apple. BAGELS! The New York Bagel is my preferred style…

Pillow Soft Pretzels

Growing up in Europe had many advantages. Like experiencing wine festivals through the end of summer and into the fall.  Winter markets full of crafts and mulled wine.  And grabbing daily bread and pastries early in the morning while still warm and ready to be devoured with your favorite cheese. And while living in Germany,…

Simple Crepes

As a child, my mother cooked with me whenever possible. Growing up was all about good homemade food. There was zero prepackaged/processed foods. If we wanted cookies, they were homemade cookies. If we wanted pizza, it was made from scratch. During lunch hour, no one wanted to trade my carrot sticks for fruit snacks but…

Cheddar & Onion Cornbread

I have tried dozens of times to make cornbread… A recipe so good, I would want to make it over and over again until I couldn’t eat cornbread anymore.  One that doesn’t fall apart and has the right amount of sweetness. I have failed at EVERY attempt, until now… After all, I need something to…

Chili Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

Ahhh Crinkle cookies. The perfect holiday treat… Their powdered exterior reminds me of fresh snowfall on mountain peaks and their soft chocolate interior with a hint of chili is the perfect combination of sweet and spice.

Almond Biscotti

Ever go to a coffee shop, look at the goodies behind the counter glass and catch your eye on a biscotti? You order it, with your coffee of course, dunk it and take a bite of that perfectly-crunchy-yet-soft-from-the-dunk piece and think how the heck did I forget how good these are? When I ask my friends if they…

Death by Chocolate Banana Muffins

chocolate banana muffins

  Childhood food memory = chocolate banana muffins.  My parents were uber-strict on not allowing my brothers and me to eat processed foods.  That meant I was the kid at school who had nothing to trade at lunch time.  No kid wants to trade fruit snacks for a real piece of fruit!  However, over the…
