Rice Pudding

By admission, I’m terrible at measuring rice.  I completely overestimate how many people one cup of rice will feed.  It never looks like that much, but when it’s cooked, you know you’ll never eat that much.  I haven’t made rice in a while, so when I made the bulgogi, I made two cups of rice…

Peppermint Crunch Bark

I will fully admit that most of my recipes start out with me trying to clean out my cupboard.  I had about half a bag of peppermint baking chips left over from my e+e holiday baking and needed to do something with them.  Having said that, if you’re looking for a quick, easy, family-friendly dessert/snack,…

Peach Tarragon Shortcakes

I can’t believe summer is almost over and I haven’t made any summer desserts!  It’s been so hot lately that I’ve been very reluctant to turn on my oven!  My mood changed when I spent the weekend in Philly.  The weather was so nice and comfortable that I was inspired to get back to the…

RumChata Milkshake

There’s a chance you may have noticed that I like boozy desserts.  Cakes, ice cream, pies, you name it, so get ready for another one.  While I was visiting friends in northern MA, Miles and I grabbed sandwiches and while waiting for them I came across a bottle of RumChata.  RumChata is a creamy horchata…

Rhubarb Shortcakes with Red Wine

I’m continuing my love affair with boozy dessert by resurrecting my rhubarb shortcakes with red wine recipe. With rhubarb season coming to an end, it was more than difficult getting my hands on a few stalks, but I was lucky enough to find a few around the corner from my house. Please, please tell me…

Boozy Iced Tea and Lemonade Popsicle

  I was soooooo hot this weekend!  Lately, I’ve been into boozy frozen drinks.  I was never a huge fan of frozen margaritas, but right now, they’ve really been hitting the spot.  There’s also a recipe for a wine slushy that I’m dying to try.  However, all of my other frozen drink ideas faded when…

Potato Chip Marshmallow Treats

I’m beginning to realize that most of what I bake starts out as a craving, the desire to silence my inner picky eater or a means of clearing out my cupboard and not wanting to throw anything out.  This recipe falls into the latter category.  Miles wanted wavy chips for his lunch last week, but…

Lucky Charms Bark

I bought a box of Lucky Charms a while ago with the intention of decorating a cake with the marshmallows.  I separated the cereal from the marshmallows and set them aside as I went to the store to buy missing ingredients.  That’s when I saw the Star Wars cereal and made a cake with that,…

Pecan Pretzel Bark

Since returning home from the holiday where I ate every type of food imaginable, I’m now in an apartment where I have a few condiments and snacks.  Since Miles won’t be back until the weekend, I’ve avoided going to the store and have enjoyed pigging out on whatever I can get my hands on.  Yesterday…

Bermuda Rum Candied Pecans

It’s my last week in the office before the holiday (we’ll for most folks in the office), and little bags of treats have been appearing on my desk daily.  I suddenly felt behind on my office gift giving and began to search my cupboard for options.  Pecans!  I have lots and lots of pecans and…

Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Bark

  This peanut butter rice krispie bark is my own take on Avalanche cookies which is an adaptation of something that exists at the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory; a place that I’ve never been to, but I have a cousin who loves to go there whenever she sees one in the airport. Whenever white chocolate…

Churros

Churros are one of Miles’ favorite desserts and I couldn’t pass up making them for Cinco de Mayo. It was also a huge coincidence that our Taco Tuesday (we started it before the Lego movie) was also on Cinco this year. It was great having all of our, well his favorites on the same day….
