Happy St. Patrick’s Day! As someone who Irish Step danced throughout high school, I miss this day of dancing + merriment often. Someone I also think about on this day is my “little sister,” who I met during those dancing years when I was the rehearsal captain of our company and she was our youngest […]

dairy-free chocolate mousse

Happy New Year! I was 13 when I first went to Paris. My grandparents were there, and invited my mother + I during my spring break. European culture, specifically France and Switzerland where my grandmother’s family is from, has always been instilled in me, but when I was able to experience it for myself, I […]

spiked hot chocolate

Dear Santa, Do you remember when we all were wishing for a laundry list of things last year? 2020 was going to be the year of perfect vision, and yet the visions of dancing sugarplums did not look like covid-19, isolation + politicians from both sides of the aisle caring about their own agendas than […]

This recipe is the best holiday hot chocolate in cookie form. Do you see a theme here? You start with brownie cookies (inspiration from @bojongourmet). When the batter can’t get any better, you fold in smaller versions of your homemade marshmallows and add crushed candy cane + sea salt on top. What comes out is […]

I don’t know Christmas without chocolate, orange and peppermint. Those are the flavors of my childhood with our stockings filled with chocolate oranges – a tradition from my dad’s side of the family – and dinners ending with bowls of peppermint stick ice cream – a tradition from my mom’s side of the family.

frozen blueberry – chocolate bites

Sometimes you just need chocolate! It’s no surprise that I love sweet things and baking, but sometimes I just want something delicious that’s not labor intensive nor something I’d have a lot of leftovers. Who do you think eats all of my experiments? If you ever want something sweet, please let me know + I […]

orange scented brownies

Growing up, we would get a chocolate orange in our stocking every christmas – you know the ones you whack and the pieces come apart like an orange? It’s a tradition that has been passed down from my father’s side of the family and while I don’t eat them a lot, the flavor combination of […]

It all begins with an idea. Maybe you want to launch a business. Maybe you want to turn a hobby into something more. Or maybe you have a creative project to share with the world. Whatever it is, the way you tell your story online can make all the difference.

beet brownies

I received an email on my birthday which took me by surprise. She was asking about the brownie recipe that I used to have on my blog and if she could get it. I was shocked, honestly, as this website has been up for about a year and I’ve done a HORRIBLE job adding new recipes […]
