Pots O’ Gold

Pot O' Gold Guinness brownie pots with caramel Irish Whiskey gold mousse

Well, they say March comes in like a lion, and it sure does! That Nor’easter hit Boston hard.  We didn’t get any snow here, but we got a lot of rain and wind and there was a lot of flooding.  I’m holding out hope that it only goes up from here.  March means it’s almost spring. March also means it’s time to start thinking about St. Patrick’s Day and I’m super excited about this recipe. This is a super easy recipe for Pots o’ Gold.

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!

Super Bowl Sam ’76 Cupcakes

Super Bowl Sam 76 Cupcakes decorated with red, white, and blue sprinkles and the Patriots logo

Well, another year in Boston and another Super Bowl for the Patriots. This year is an unexciting Super Bowl for me.  I don’t particularly care for either team (sorry fellow Bostonians!) so I may be tuning into the Puppy Bowl instead this year. However, I know there are lots of Pats and Eagles fans out there! I also know there are a lot of people who are going to Super Bowl parties who may want to bring delicious treats!

Coconut Milk Hot Cocoa {dairy-free}

Coconut Milk and Dairy Free Chocolate

One of the best coffee shop beverages I ever had was a Coconut Cream Mocha.  I love coconut and I love the combination of coconut and chocolate.  The coconut flavor was so strong and I loved it.  I later learned that the strength of the flavor came from a coconut-flavored syrup, but there is still something so appealing about coconut cream.  Even though it doesn’t bring a strong coconut flavor, I love that it adds just a hint of it.
