Cinnamon Rolls

I love having warm cinnamon rolls for breakfast. Emphasis on breakfast. The biggest downer to making cinnamon rolls for breakfast is having to get up at 6/7am to let the dough rise twice, so you can have warm rolls, by 9:30-10am. I’ve always been nervous about putting dough in the fridge the night before, but…

Tartfilette

I spotted this gem of a recipe while killing time on Facebook. I was scrolling through my newsfeed (mostly Buzzfeed quizzes and posts about bands), when Saveur decided that I should stop, stare and salivate at the post of a recipe for a cheese, potato and bacon casserole. I had to make this. Luckily a…

The Chocolate Pie Battle

For New Year’s Eve, I made a chocolate pie. Wait, let me start again. While in Michigan over Christmas, I stopped in a bakery and had a slice of Chocolate Pie. It was delicious. It was very dark and rich, and the texture was very dense, yet smooth and creamy at the same time. I…

Cinnamon Roll Waffles

Over the past few days (maybe weeks), I started noticing various things being made with a waffle maker. Everything, from sandwiches, to brownies, to cookies, you name it. I thought I’d have some fun with it myself and decided to try cinnamon rolls and chocolate chip cookies. I have to tell you right now, that…

Waffle Maker Fun (not so much)

Over the past few days (maybe weeks), I started noticing various things being made with a waffle maker. Everything, from sandwiches, to brownies, to cookies, you name it. I thought I’d have some fun with it myself and decided to try cinnamon rolls and chocolate chip cookies. I have to tell you right now, that…

Chocolate Chip Muffins

Chocolate chip muffins are pretty popular at my house. I usually make a couple of dozen, individually wrap them, and keep them in the freezer. It’s a great way for my son to feed himself in the morning before school. Just take one (or three) out of the freezer the night before to thaw and…

Chocolate Covered Graham Crackers with Caramel & Coconut

The day I made the pretzel turtles, I still had about half a pan of caramel left over and set it aside to cut later. The next day, someone at work was given a box of Camper Grahams. They were a cookie-meets-confection treat from Williams Sonoma and they were awesome! It was a graham cracker…

Pretzel Turtles

A friend of mine in the office gave me these as a present for Christmas. They were delicious. She asked me how I felt about them honestly and I replied, “They’re delicious, but they were a little hard to chew.” She agreed and we brainstormed on how to prevent that from happening. We thought that…

Scalloped Potato Gratin

So my mom put me in charge of the potatoes this year for Christmas dinner. She also put me in charge of roasting two fillets of salmon (which totally freaked me out). I’ve made this recipe in the past with success, but I constantly lose the recipe with my notes, so every time I make…
