Candied Pecans

I’ve heard it said that most of the enjoyment of a glass of wine comes from the smell. But I’m pretty sure the same goes for candied nuts. These.  Pecans.  Smell.  AMAZING!!! Oh my goodness.  I’m kind of convinced that people should stop buying candles and just bake candied...

Lemon Meringue Pie

Last week, there was a birthday in da house at #neighbornights — my friend, Liam! Talk about neighbors turned into good friends.  I can’t really imagine life in our loft without this guy.  Liam is a born-and-raised New Yorker who followed a job to Kansas City and ended up...

Greek Yogurt Chocolate Cake

Over the (now 5!) years that I have been food blogging, I have become accustomed to the random foods that grace my kitchen at some of the most random hours.  This was especially true when I had my full-time job on top of blogging. Grilled steak at 7am on...

Samoa Cheesecake

Samoa vs. Caramel DeLites. Tagalongs vs. Peanut Butter Patties. Trefoils vs. Shortbread. Girl Scouts of America, why do you need to make the names of your cookies so confusing??  Yes, I know it’s all about the different bakeries that bake for different regions of the country.  But I feel...
