Dope Belgian Brownies

That’s right. Make them and you’ll taste why! The reaction I had when I took a bite of this brownie was the same reaction I had when I tried the Shrimp and Grits at Amen Street restaurant in Charleston, South Carolina. So basically you are sitting there not sure what to expect but pretty excited….

Banana Bread with Boozy Dates

Bah! Well, I’m falling apart..physically mind you..on the left side of my body. I hurt my shoulder and I have no idea how. I went to get my knee checked and apparently there is nothing wrong with it other than, hey, I’m approaching middle age. Two days ago, I found out I have plantar fasciitis…

Christmas came and went and New Year’s Eve is upon us!

Fat Witch Bakery’s Caramel Brownies

What do you do when you can’t sleep? Duh! Post about brownies! Most people are up at 6:30, at the gym, having coffee, working. I have been up since 5:30 and I am working..kinda. I am also still not fully awake so excuse any babbling. I need some good french press coffee right now! If…

Sablé Cookies

Butter, baby! I can’t ever give up butter–its a glorious dairy product, which I will forever keep close at hand. I have never not had butter in the fridge and my favorite is Kerrygold 🙂 Check out this website–Butter through the Ages. Pretty darn interesting and I just happened to glance through it. After reading this…

Caramel Commotion Bars

Happy Labor Day weekend to all! Hope you are having a fabulous time, wherever you are and whatever your plans. I have been busy whipping up some desserts. We had friends over yesterday and I made the fabulous baked brownies because if I hadn’t, they would never have forgiven me 🙂 I also wanted to…

Layers of Love!

You must go to the kitchen immediately and start baking and putting together and savoring every last bite of this gorgeous tart. Last weekend I was on the prowl for a dessert with caramel. After a few tireless minutes I may just have found the best looking homemade candy bar. The Twix Tart. It practically…

SFOUF (Lebanese Semolina Cake)

If you like semolina, turmeric and pine nuts, you have got to try this cake. Turmeric is a healthy spice, which is not only used in curries but also in desserts. I am sure there are different versions of it online or in cookbooks but the recipe I have was given to my mom by…
