Pies and Other Desserts


January 24, 2012

I’m obsessed with Pinterest. I heard about a few months ago but I didn’t check it out until my sister encouraged me to do so over the holidays. It’s basically a virtual bulletin board; find an image of something that sparks your interest online and save it by “pinning” the image to a categorized board. […]


Dirt Pudding (AKA Dirt Cake)

January 20, 2012

I made this over the weekend because I had a sudden and inexplicable/out-of-the-blue craving. Plus it was Larry’s fourth birthday. In his honor, I was going to put paw prints in the “mud.” It didn’t work out. He was pretty mad about it (see above photo). He was also angry about not being able to […]


Happy New Year

January 10, 2012

Hellooo…is anyone still there? I hope you all had a great holiday season…and an awesome Fall…and a nice summer. I’ve been a bad, bad blogger…but I’m back! I’ll be writing about food again soon so stay tuned. I would also like to let you know that I am now the proud owner of a CROCK […]


D and I are on a budget because we: a) are both actors (that you’ve never heard of) b) don’t have trust funds c) sometimes don’t have jobs Many of our friends and family members who live elsewhere often wonder how we can afford to eat here; a place where The Olive Garden is crazy […]


Happy 4th!

July 4, 2011

I’ve had a rough week in the kitchen. I made some chocolate sandwich cookies (homemade Oreos) that tasted like salt. I ruined a perfectly good pound of fresh strawberries by turning them into dense, soggy cupcakes. And then I brought them to a party because I just couldn’t bring myself to buy something after all […]


An Easy Strawberry Tart

June 24, 2011

I’ve kind of dropped the ball on my blog posting lately. The truth is, I haven’t been spending a lot of time in the kitchen. As we move into summer, I’ll be doing less baking and more ice cream churning, popsicle freezing and salad assembling. I’ll also be checking out new places to grab a […]


Blackberry Pie Bars

June 7, 2011

This recipe is all over the food-blogosphere. I spotted it while back and had been waiting for the right occasion to make them. A cookout invite and a sale on fresh blackberries were perfect excuses to whip up some of these tasty bars, which I’d describe as a cross between a cake, a cobbler and […]


This banana pudding is very special. It’s D’s mom’s banana pudding and it’s pretty famous (in our world, at least). Throughout the years, it has showed up (and been devoured) at countless parties, family gatherings and important life events. It is insanely good and I think it’s about time that you know how to make […]


Homemade Froyo

May 26, 2011

This is frozen yogurt that tastes like real yogurt; it’s a little tart and very different from the sweet TCBY-style treat that frozen yogurt is often associated with. The first time I had this natural style yogurt (which apparently originated in Korea) was in the form of Pinkberry, a popular chain that has expanded ┬áto […]


Okay, so here’s the fabulous chocolate zucchini bread I recently mentioned. It doesn’t taste anything like traditional zucchini bread. It tastes exactly like chocolate cake; except you can eat it for breakfast, because it’s called chocolate zucchini bread. And it has vegetables in it. That makes it healthy (at least until you add the other […]
