Creme Egg Cookies

I love Cadbury Creme Eggs. I always have. I don’t know why I never learned how to make that sweet, glorious filling before now, but it turns out it’s super easy to make! There are so many delicious desserts you could create with this filling, but sandwiching it between two fresh, delicious chocolate cookies is definitely the way to go! So get to baking and you can have these creme egg cookies ready in no time!

Guinness Black Currant Cupcakes

I’ve never been much of a beer drinker. I just don’t care for the bitterness. I’ve also never been to Ireland, though I’m dying to go! I’ve heard from many friends who have visited that Guinness from the source itself tastes so much better than the Guinness they serve in the U.S. Because Guinness is particularly bitter, an acquired taste, it’s apparently also common for college kids and tourists to add black currant juice to the beer to make it more palatable.

Raspberry Rosé Cake

Raspberry Rosé cake with raspberry rosé jam and rosé frosting featuring Rosé Angry Orchard Cider

Just because I’m out of town this week doesn’t mean I’m going to leave you hanging on a recipe!  But I am going to keep this post short and sweet.  Summer will be here before we know it and I can’t think of a better flavor combination than raspberry and rosé! Rosé seems to be trendier this summer than it has before, and rightly so.  Rosé is the perfect summer drink. Light, cool, refreshing, and most importantly, delicious!  And adding raspberries is really just a good idea. Continue Reading

Piña Colada Upside Down Cupcakes

Pina Colada Upside Down Cupcakes

Here in Boston we’re expecting our third nor’easter in a row this week. The first one was all rain, the next one was a few inches of snow, so who knows what to expect this week! But today was spring forward so that means spring is close, right?  Well, I know that Easter is just a few weeks away.  And so is Passover.  Those mean spring, right?! These Piña Colada Upside Down Cupcakes are not Passover friendly (check out my Passover cookie cake inspired by Molly Yeh!), but they are super delicious and they just scream spring!

Funfetti Hamantaschen

Sprinkles for Funfetti Hamantaschen

I remember making hamentaschen with my mom when I was younger, but I haven’t made them in years because I’m usually not a huge fan of the cookie. For those who don’t know, hamentaschen are triangle shaped cookies that represent the villain, Haman, of the Jewish holiday, Purim. They are usually similar to a shortbread cookie and are filled with a fruit or poppyseed filling.  As a dessert, it’s just never been the type of cookie that excites me.  So I decided to jazz it up and make one that does excite me: Funfetti Hamantaschen!
