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!

Lemon Lavender Marshmallows

Did you know marshmallows are super easy to make from scratch? I probably wouldn’t make plain marshmallows from scratch because I’m all about the easiest way possible, and it’s obviously easiest to buy plain ol’ regular marshmallows. For the record, I also hold this opinion about standard pie crusts. But with marshmallows made from scratch, you can make so many different flavors! And I can’t think of a better flavor for spring than Lemon Lavender Marshmallows! These are light and bright and are the perfect flavor to bring spring!

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.

Red Wine Chocolate Creme Brulee

I love Valentine’s Day!!! I feel like I say this every year in my Valentine’s Day post, but this holiday gets a lot of hate for being a made-up holiday. Aside from the fact that the holiday is named after a Saint, much like St. Patrick’s Day (which people don’t seem to be complaining about), it’s also a holiday promoting love. We shouldn’t need an excuse to celebrate love, we should be celebrating it every day, but why not have a day that revolves around love?! Plus, I’ll take any excuse for a theme, and to create a delicious dessert like this red wine chocolate creme brulee.

Happy 2020! I’m so glad to be back! 2019 took a lot out of me. I think last I was here, I was about to run the Boston Marathon. I can’t believe I haven’t given you a recipe since St. Patrick’s Day! I spent 2019 really focused on running, which meant posting took a back seat.

I still was baking and creating recipes, but the blog writing and photographing are so time-consuming and I just wasn’t able to keep up. But that means I have a lot of recipes queued up ready to share with you!
