Dutch babies are typically topped with butter and sugar, or sometimes with maple syrup. Annie’s Noms made a Raspberry & Passion Fruit Dutch Baby that has a few more layers of flavor to ...

Salted Chocolate & Pretzel Rice Krispy Treats

Rice krispy treats are one of my favorite snacks to make on a day when I’m in the mood for a sweet treat, but don’t feel like baking anything.

Trader Joe’s Mini Cinnamon Sugar Churros, reviewed

Trader Joe's Mini Cinnamon Sugar Churros, reviewed

Churros have been a favorite treat of mine since childhood. Unlike cookies and cupcakes, which were relatively easy to come by on a daily basis, churros were the sort of treat that you could only find at the fair or at Disneyland. I’ll often stop by a churro stand when I spot one, no matter where in the world I am, and have been known ... Read More »
