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 […]


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 […]


Growing up, this was one of my all-time favorite foods. In recent years, I’ve really only eaten it when it shows up on the table around the holidays, and I usually don’t make it myself. I made this recipe for the first time earlier year and it was easy and awesome. Right before we left […]


I ate fried, greasy, sugary things that I try not to eat in real life. I had every intention of sharing some recipes with you while I was away but that clearly did not happen. I also failed to adequately document my ┬áculinary adventures in Orlando. I lose. Here are a few random snacks that […]


Happy Easter!

April 24, 2011

Happy Easter! We celebrated with some of our closest friends on Friday night over an Easter/Passover feast. I brought a big pan of some very un-kosher but amazing baked┬ámac and cheese, some roasted broccoli (so good that it was even appreciated by broccoli haters), some matzo crack and these chick pops. They were almost too […]

Merry Christmas!

December 25, 2010

I hope you are having a joyful day. I am having a great time hanging out with my family, eating wonderful food and working in my parents’ giant kitchen. Larry has gotten a hold of so many things that should not be in his stomach…he’s keeping those air fresheners busy. D got me a few […]


Happy Thanksgiving

November 26, 2010

Did everyone have a nice Thanksgiving? I had a great time in the kitchen today, and it was even more fun sitting down to eat everything. I’m so full…I don’t think I’ll be hungry for days. Actually, that’s a lie. I can’t wait to dig into the leftovers. The theme of today’s menu was comfort. […]


Cranberry Sauce

November 24, 2010

Mmm…cranberry sauce. I want it on my Thanksgiving table. Do yourself a favor and make it from scratch this year if you’ve never made it before. It couldn’t be easier. It takes less than 10 minutes, start to finish. Seriously.
