Pumpkin Pie Biscotti

Pumpkin Pie Biscotti

My cabinets may or may not have an unusually plentiful supply of pumpkin this year… Ha – I can’t seem to help myself!  Ever since last year’s pumpkin shortage, an extra can always seems to make its way into my grocery bag whenever I pass by it in the...

Apple Cheddar Bread

(Healthier!) Apple Crumble Muffins

(Healthier!) Apple Crumble Muffins

  I don’t know about you, but often it seems that however I begin the day — with a healthy or not-so-healthy breakfast — can usually set the tone for how I continue eating the rest of the day.  But since I’m not one to rise and shine any...

Pepperoni Pizza Puffs

Pepperoni Pizza Puffs

Ok – I’ve found a new favorite ingredient at the store.  They’ve probably existed for years, and I somehow missed them.  But hey — they’re new to me.  :)  I’m talking about…. Mini-pepperonis!!!! Have you seen these?!  Oh my goodness — they’re too cute for words.  I actually forgot...

Perfect Pizza Sauce

Perfect Pizza Sauce

Without a doubt, people are opinionated about their pizza sauce! Some like it smooth.  Some like it chunky.  Some like it simple and tomato-flavored.  Some like it packed with herbs.  Some like it sweet.  Some like it unsweetened.  But without a doubt…good pizza sauce can definitely “make” a pizza!!!...

Sweet Pea & Ricotta Crostini

Sweet Pea & Ricotta Crostini

It’s spring!  It’s spring!  It’s spring!!!!!!! Oh my word, after what seemed like the longest, grayest, snowy-est winter in history, spring has finally arrived!  Oddly in Kansas City, we had 9″ of snow decide to fall on the official first day of the new season.  (I know…ser-i-ous-ly.)  But as...

Berry & Ricotta Danishes

Berry & Ricotta Danishes

For one morning — one splendid morning — I felt like a pastry chef.  :-) But I admit, thanks to the brilliance of puff pastry, this recipe was actually ridiculously simple.  The most time-consuming part was just cutting out the little frames of the pastry dough.  But other than...

To kick of a morning of meetings on Mardi Gras, I decided to bake up these delicious sticky buns for my coworkers!  YUM! I have actually had a lovely surplus of puff pastry sitting in my freezer this month, after stocking up from a $0.99 sale at Aldi (wahoo!). ...

Easy Breakfast Braid

Easy Breakfast Braid

Allow me to take a moment to brag on my friends.  They pretty much…rock.  :) Last Sunday, we had brunch at my place.  And even though it was fairly last-minute for some, the spread was absolutely incredible!  Love them, and love that they enjoy food as much as I...
