Blood Orange Scones


Oh winter citrus, how do I love thee? There are too many ways to count. I just can’t get enough of you. Combining you with a scone is almost too good to be true. Almost. These Blood Orange Scones are moist. I mean, shut-the-front-door moist. She’s beautiful. Just look at her. And that citrus flavor isn’t just hiding behind a veil with her head down,…

Chocolate Rye Stout Cake With Marshmallow Meringue


I mean…I’m not sure what else to say, but look at this stout cake. This is a beautifully damp cake. The rye-stout combo, while bold in its own right, hangs back and lets the chocolate notes take center stage. This combo does double-duty by also keeping overt sweetness at bay. The birth of this cake started with dreams of cream cheese frosting…which is pretty standard issue for a…

Smoked Salt Dark Chocolate Rye Cookies


Smoked Salt Double Chocolate Rye Cookies I first started working on this recipe in the middle of Christmas season when everyone was all eggnog, sugar cookies and tinsel. It didn’t seem remotely relevant. She’s been tested and tasted and retested at least half a dozen times since. All perched and ready to go. Just sitting in a Word doc on…

To get back to reality. Our holiday break was filled with some mini-trips (my kids mostly, with their dad) and lots of family time. Cousins, aunts and uncles came from Southern and Northern…

Petite Spiced Pumpkin Scones


Petite Spiced Pumpkin Scones { options } I like options, that’s no secret. So this pumpkin scones recipe has two schmooey options. First, a nice maple schmooey that screams fall. Second, an anise schmooey for those of you that want to wake up your taste buds a bit. This latter schmooey adds a nice kick to the smooth, warm flavors of the…

{ pecan + tart cherry autumn granola }


cherry + pecan autumn granola { pretend sweater time } Somewhere, people are putting on sweaters. Thick, wooly, itchy sweaters. And socks so dense they need to go up a shoe size. These people are thinking about mittens and sleds, knowing that they’re not too far off into the future. As I’m typing this, those same people are prepping all-day-in-the-oven stews, filling the…

Giant Chocolate Chip Cookies


I know, I know. Just what the world needs…another ‘the world’s best’ chocolate chip cookie recipe. But in fact, that’s exactly what we need. When was the last time you took a bite of a chocolate chip cookie and then went and had a crappy day? Or sunk your teeth into a still warm, ooey gooey cookie and it didn’t…

Thai Beef Lettuce Wraps { hot summer nights + neurosis } I have this new game I’ve been playing with myself and it’s called Let’s Doubt All of Your Capabilities. It’s really fun. I make something and then I fret and stew and worry that it’s going to be a complete failure. You should try it sometime. It’s awesome. Why I’m…

Blueberry Maple Pancake Muffins


I was totally inspired by Joy The Baker’s Pancake Muffins. As much as I love hers, I wanted them to taste like my pancakes. I love pancakes. But I‘m obsessed with the fact that I can feed a group something pancake-esque, without standing over a hot stove and missing all of the action. I don’t care what you say about…

Bacon Cheddar Chive Petite Scones


Bacon Cheddar Chive Scones Anytime I can throw bacon, cheese and onions in something, I will. I wanted to dabble in savory scones for quite some time but just hadn’t found the time or occasion. So when I had the opportunity to cater a large lunch recently, I knew my time had come. I didn’t put these bacon cheddar chive…

Giant Salted Dark Chocolate + Olive Oil Cookies


I haven’t gone on and on about my laziness lately because I think I’m giving myself a bit of a bad rap. Indulge me in a wee bit of clarification. The truth is, I’m actually sweating balls, toiling away, sun-up to sundown. I’m working on my writing (love), coming up with new recipes (love squared), bidding on projects (mamas gotta…
