Rainbow Carrot Cake

Rainbow Carrot Cake Slice

Most carrots in grocery stores are orange, but you may have noticed that carrots have started to come in many colors. Rainbow carrots – a convenient term to refer to multi-colored carrots – come in purple, red, yellow and white, as well as orange. They were once only available at farmers markets, but have become so popular that even regular grocery stores often carry them ... Read More »

Tropical Morning Muffins

Tropical Morning Muffins

I find it hard to resist a muffin in the morning, especially when it is a homemade muffin that is still slightly warm from the oven. So I don’t try to resist muffins in the morning. I’m even willing to get up a little bit extra early on a weekday to throw together a batch – especially if that batch of muffins smells as good ... Read More »

Maple Bacon Waffles

Maple Bacon Waffles

I don’t make waffles as often as I make pancakes, simply because it is easier to clean a griddle than it is to clean my waffle iron. But I like waffles at least as much as I like pancakes and they’re always a great breakfast on a lazy weekend morning. A good waffle should be tender inside and crisp outside – and a great waffle ...

March Madness Cupcakes

March Madness Cupcakes

March Madness is the popular name for the NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Championship series, which primarily takes place during March every year. The single elimination tournament is so popular that even people who don’t watch basketball the rest of the season get into it, rooting for their alma matter or the college team that is local to their area. Like the Super Bowl, it ... Read More »

White Chocolate Vanilla Bean Mousse

White Chocolate Vanilla Bean Mousse

Chocolate mousse is an indulgence that is a real treat on special occasions – at least, special occasions are just about the only time I see chocolate mousse being served. Mousse is easy to make and it is light enough that it can be served any day of the week, for any occasion, and doesn’t need to be “saved” for a handful of times throughout ... Read More »

Peeps Krispy Treats

Peeps Krispy Treats

Even though Peeps are now going to be available year-round, I will always associate them with Easter and spring. They were always my favorite springtime treat when I was a kid and I keep finding new ways to use them this time of year, though I don’t inhale them quite as quickly as I did when I was 10. Last year, I turned a batch ... Read More »

Thick Cut-Out Sugar Cookies

Thick Cut Out Sugar Cookies

Colorfully decorated, thickly-cut sugar cookies are some of the most eye catching cookies in any bakery case. They’re the most popular with kids, but I sometimes find myself caving in and getting one just because they look so appealing. This type of cookie tends to be more about the frosting than the cookie, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t have one that actually tastes ... Read More »

Dark Chocolate Coffee Macarons

Dark Chocolate Coffee Macarons

Macarons are one of my favorite cookies to make. They take a little more time to put together than your average chocolate chip cookie recipe, but they are always well worth the effort – especially when they have a filling that is as good as the one in these Dark Chocolate Coffee Macarons. The filling is a surprisingly easy to make dark chocolate and coffee ... Read More »
