Blueberry Brown Butter Crumb Bars

Friday, July 27


Is anyone else ridiculously excited about the Olympics? The opening ceremonies are about to start in a few hours and I cannot wait! I've been lucky enough to travel through most of Europe, but my passport is still missing a stamp from London... I have a feeling that the games will only fuel an already overflowing desire to visit the breathtaking, historic city.

Blueberry-Sour Cream Ice Cream

Monday, July 23


Late to the party as always, I think I'm finally turning into an ice cream fan. Maybe it has to do with the sultry, tropical heat I've been living swimming in for the past month, or maybe my taste buds are simply bored with all the buttery, chewy stuff I've been munching on all these years.

Chocolate Cupcakes with Nutella-Peanut Butter Frosting

Thursday, July 19


I love happy reunions. (Not those awkward, Holiday-induced family reunions -- the kind that force us to sit with people who don't share our political viewpoints whilst they look at me you with saccharin-laced "Oh, but you're still single," glances.)  Just the happy reunions...they're my absolute favorite.

Today, after almost 10 sweltering days, my oven and I met over dessert. 

Boy, did we have a lot to catch up on!

Lemon Brownies

Monday, July 16


I am constantly looking for different ways to fuel my rather unhealthy lemon obsession, and since I've already made an elephantine amount of lemon bars (don't worry, there will be more!), I decided to try something new...something kinda-sorta similar to a lemon bar but without the jelly-belly center.

Low and behold, I stumbled upon this incantation of a lemon bar/brownie hybrid!

Apricot-Glazed Mini Doughnuts

Friday, July 13


Because I can easily inhale several bowls in one sitting, I try not to eat pasta very often. So if I know that I'm going to turn into a whiny, lethargic sloth for several hours, I like to be prepared. This preparation includes lots of strategically placed pillows on the living room floor, a few favourite movies (Thank you, Netflix, for being the best invention since pay-at-the-pump), and of course, any dessert that's just as coma inducing as pasta.

Cinnamon & Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Tuesday, July 10


It's been far too hot to turn on the oven (that's just a fact, not a complaint), so I haven't baked anything in almost a week. Luckily I have a few extra photos and recipes that are just begging to be shared.

I really hope that you're not getting sick of chocolate chip cookie posts. (Never mind all the lemon recipes. That's a refreshing, endless ocean I don't mind drowning in...and taking you down with me. ♥) I know cookies sometimes accidentally wander into Been-there, Done-that's, territory, but I promise to always try and keep things interesting in the realm of Cookiedom.

Lime Creamsicle Cookies

Friday, July 6


Before I gush over these delightful little cookies, I would like to ask everyone to please keep Niles (my darling, chubby, mild-mannered cat), in your thoughts for the next few days. He was just diagnosed with idiopathic vestibular syndrome. And even though most pets get over this scary-sounding affliction within a week, it breaks my heart to see him stumbling about with his head tilted uncomfortably to the left.

Strawberry-filled Mezzaluna Cookies

Tuesday, July 3


These cookies might not scream 4th of July, but once you bite into one, I don't think that you (or your guests), will mind too much.

I'm drawn to anything that has an interesting name, which is why I always get into trouble when I'm bored with myself and feel like trying a new hair color. Champagne cocktail sounds a lot lovelier than it actually looks, especially on a brunette. (Yes, I plead ignorance when it comes to reading labels and checking the swatches.)
