Happy Easter! To be honest, I was raised more spiritually than within organized religion so my Easter holidays growing up were about the Easter bunny and egg hunts. When I was really young, we dyed eggs in all of the colors until those eggs turned to plastic + were filled with chocolate or money with […]

grasshopper brownies

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 […]

cacao nib meringues

Being in the hospitality industry, my boyfriend + I are typically working on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. It’s a marathon working about 24 hours within 29, but it’s something that we know is going to happen and the team makes it a lot of fun to be there together. This year due […]

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 […]

brownie cookies with peppermint + marshmallow

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 […]

chocolate swirled marshmallows

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. I […]

pecan pie cups

I hated nuts in any dessert when I was younger. My mom even called carrot cake boxed mix ‘spiced cake’ because I equated carrot cake with walnuts and wouldn’t have eaten it. I loved that cake mix though. Years later, I was living in NYC, and my parents invited me to meet them in Boston […]

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 […]
