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!Continue Reading
I have so much egg white in my fridge right now. It seems like so many of my recipes call for egg yolks that I’ve just been collecting egg whites. I don’t want to waste them, but I don’t know what to do with them other than making meringue. There are so many delicious things to do with meringue, but after a long train of thought, I determined that the best way to use meringue is in a margarita meringue pie! And I have to admit, I was right.Continue Reading
My parents got me a Tasty calendar for Hanukkah which includes not only the usual holidays, but it also tells me about all those fun food holidays we see on social media! I’ve been using these holidays as inspiration for my 2020 recipe planning, so you’ll see a lot of my recipes this year inspired by these food holidays. As it turns out, January 23 is National Pie Day (not to be confused with Pi day in March). So what better pie to have for a cold, snowy, probably dreary January day than Hot Cocoa pie?!Continue Reading
When I lived in Louisville, the St. Patrick’s Day parade was one of my favorite days of the year. Since moving to Boston, though, I have avoided the parade. I hear it gets a bit rowdy in Southie! But the chaos of the celebrations doesn’t keep me from making a delicious themed dessert every year! And you know I love a good theme! Two years ago I made this to-die-for Irish Coffee Cake with Irish whiskey, and last year I made these super fun Pots O’ Gold with Guinness. I decided to change it up again this year to make these insanely easy St. Patrick’s Day treats! They’re like a Rice Krispie treat, but instead of Rice Krispies, they use Lucky Charms, and instead of marshmallows, you make a homemade Bailey’s fluff! Continue Reading
Since I’m going to be traveling while you’re reading this, I thought I would share a story with you about my last trip. Last month I went home to Louisville. While there my husband and I indulged in all the delicious food we missed now that we live in the northeast. It may surprise you, but Lonely Planet named Kentucky a top U.S. destination for 2018!
