Blueberry Cake

Hey friends!  Ali, here.  I’m really excited to introduce you to one of the coolest 15-year-olds I know, who collaborated with me as the baker/writer/photographer behind today’s post.  Her name is Maya, and we have gone to church together for years.  But I only recently found out that —...

White Chocolate & Strawberry Ice Cream

White Chocolate & Strawberry Ice Cream

Ok, I’m still playing catch-up this week highlighting some of my favorite recipes that I made/photographed this summer, but somehow didn’t find the time to post.  So for all of you who still have your ice cream makers out, or for anyone who (like me) thinks ice cream has...

Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes With Fresh Strawberry Buttercream

And….voila!  Here is the final recipe from the Cupcake-A-Thon! In addition to being “pretty in pink” (love those cute wrappers!), these strawberry lemonade cupcakes turned out to be oh-so-berry delicious.  The cupcakes were perfectly light and moist, with a great balance of the sweet strawberries and oh-so-slight tang of...

Idaho Sunrise (Baked Eggs and Bacon In Potato Bowls)

Ok, what is up with eggs?!!?  They seem to be in everything lately!  From topping pizzas, to burgers (shout out to Blanc, for KC locals!), to garnishing soups…apparently the incredible, edible egg is now tres chic. Intriguing, but I’m all for it!  :) One creative idea for baking eggs...

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...

Mexican “Hot” Chocolate Molten Lava Cakes

Mexican “Hot” Chocolate Molten Lava Cakes

Hello…chocolate!! For Valentine’s Day this year, thought I’d post a classic favorite from my kitchen — these adorable little chocolate molten lava cakes!  Little did I know when I first tried them years ago (at Chili’s…yes….) that they are so simple to whip up.  Just 7 minutes of prep,...

Banana Split Cupcakes

Banana Split Cupcakes

So I’ve had a total craving for a banana split this week.  Fresh bananas…warm chocolate…that perfect cherry on top…  But alas, the only problem was that final ingredient.  Ice cream.  In a city where snow and ice have decided to fall once again, and I’m left shivering in my...

Champagne Cupcakes With Sweet Champagne Buttercream Frosting

It’s a new year!  Time for new cupcakes!! I was a little curious about how these would turn out, but I’m pleased to say that they…um…ROCK.  :) Yep.  The champagne is featured beautifully, but not overpoweringly.  The texture is nice and light.  And the frosting…well, the frosting may not...

Pomegranate Champagne

Pomegranate Champagne

Happy New Year’s Eve!!! Mmmm, I love this time of year — such a special time to pause and reflect on all of the memories, joys, laughs, challenges, and lessons learned from ’09.  And then to take a deep breath, and find rest, hope, and lots of joy in...

Steak Soup

Steak Soup

Behold – one of my absolute favorite meals as a kid. Vegetable. Beef. Soup. And no, I’m not referring to the icky stuff from the can.  I’m talking about Mom’s homemade, warm, savory, absolutely delicious vegetable beef soup.  YUM.  Now that I’m living in Kansas City, I’ve discovered that...

Spicy Rosemary Peanuts

Spicy Rosemary Peanuts

If you would have asked what recipe I anticipated being one of my favorites from ’09, I’m pretty sure I never would have dreamed….peanuts! But yes, it’s true.  This recipe has quickly become a favorite.  And has now been my most requested recipe of this Christmas season.  These little...

Easy Shrimp Peel (Shrimp Boil)

Easy Shrimp Peel (Shrimp Boil)

Some families have a Christmas ham.  Others carve roast beef.  My family? We have a “shrimp peel” every Christmas!!! Yep.  We’re not Southern, but somehow this wonderful little tradition found its way into our Christmas celebration, and we absolutely love it!  Thanks to the delicious seasonings, the shrimp always...
