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!

Meringues

Meringues are such a delicious, light, and fluffy treat! They’re so easy to make and only need 4 ingredients! There are just two tricky parts about meringues. One is the weather. I know this sounds weird, but it’s true. If it’s too humid out they will come out chewy. But honestly, even the chewy ones taste good! The other tricky part is adding the sugar. You have to add it very slowly to keep them light and airy. Like a cloud!

Cinnamon Toast Crunch Puppy Chow

Cinnamon Toast Crunch Puppy Chow

Living in New England, I continuously discover things that are local or regional to my hometown in Kentucky. Recently I discovered that people here are not familiar with Puppy Chow.  Or, I should say, they’re not familiar with the name “Puppy Chow” for the chocolatey, peanut buttery, powdered sugary, addictive treat.  They call it by other names, but when I refer to Puppy Chow they all think I’m crazy.

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

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!
