Strawberry Creme Peeps with Dark Chocolate, reviewed

V-Day Peeps

Over the holidays, I tried quite a few limited edition Peeps and really enjoyed the novelty of having some seasonal flavors instead of the usual, and relatively plain, traditional Peeps.

I decided to make these biscotti as a stand ... Read More »

What better way to tell your loved ones how much they mean to you than by baking them a big batch of heart shaped cookies? Ok, there are some things that could be considered better – money, cars, twice as many cookies – but you must admit that fresh cookies are high up on the list. And this is one gorgeous batch of cookies, if ... Read More »
