Dairy-Free Sugar Cookies

Dairy-Free Sugar Cookies

I’ve mentioned before how my husband and I don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day, but that I love all the themed food. I’m that way with pretty much any holiday or event where you can create themed food. So in honor of Valentine’s day, I’ve made these dairy-free sugar cookies which I adapted from my favorite sugar cookie recipe of all time from Alton Brown. While they are very good with dairy, I wanted to try Continue Reading →

Microwave Halloween Fudge

Microwave Halloween Fudge

October is here and that means Halloween! I’m excited about Halloween, but still not sure what to expect here in Switzerland. I’ll have to find out if kids even go trick or treating. Regardless of how (or if) its celebrated here, I decided to make some Halloween themed fudge. I adapted this recipe from one by Melissa H on allrecipes. Unfortunately, I’m having some trouble finding condensed milk over here, but I did find two Continue Reading →

Recently, my husband asked me to make a cake, but we had a really tough time deciding on what kind of cake to make. In the end, we decided on a caramel apple poundcake I found on pinterest. Here is the pin for the cake and it just looked and sounded so good! The cake is from the blog Spicy Southern Kitchen and here is the full post. The cake didn’t seem too difficult, but Continue Reading →

Nutella Banana Dessert Pizza

Nutella Banana Pizza

My husband and I love Nutella. There’s just something about the chocolatey, nutty flavor that’s oh so good. The other day, we were grilling and my husband wanted to make some sort of dessert on the grill, so I came up with this recipe for Nutella banana dessert pizza. Now, this certainly doesn’t require the grill, so its easy to make all year round for a quick and easy dessert. PrintNutella Banana Dessert Pizza Prep Continue Reading →

Pinterest Review: Cinnamon Sugar Muffins

Pinterest Review: Cinnamon Sugar Muffins

Usually when I do a Pinterest review, there’s only one blog as the source. However, I just happened to pin two recipes on my desserts to try board for the exact same thing, but from different blogs. The two pins are this one and this one. I followed both pins back to the original blogs posts. The first pin led me back to Shugary Sweets and the second to The Pioneer Woman Cooks.

Pinterest Review: English Toffee

Pinterest Review English Toffee

The other day, I was browsing my Pinterest board for dessert recipes and looking for something tasty to make for my book club. I didn’t quite have enough flour to make a lemon bar recipe I had been eyeing and I didn’t feel like going to the store just for flour. Luckily, I came upon this pin for English toffee. The photo for the toffee looked so good that I just had to give it Continue Reading →

Gooey Fudgy Brownies

I don’t know about you, but I have a favorite brownie recipe and every time I make brownies I always use it. Unfortunately, I haven’t found my usual recipe since the move. Although, this is the first time I’ve made brownies since we’ve been over here. So, I had to improvise my brownie recipe. The results were really delicious  but much more gooey than my normal recipe. The brownies turned out so gooey that at first Continue Reading →

Pinterest Review: Homemade Pop Tarts

Growing up, I always loved Pop Tarts, but my mom never bought them very often. In college, I would buy them from time to time because they were a great quick breakfast.  My favorite flavor was always the brown sugar cinnamon ones. So, when I found this pin for homemade brown sugar cinnamon pop tarts, I knew I had to try them. Our recent trip to Sweden gave me the perfect opportunity because I knew Continue Reading →

Pinterest Review: Nutella Cookies

I like Pinterest just as much as the next blogger/DIYer/home cook, but I’m guilty of pinning things and never trying them. So I decided to start trying at least one pin I’ve pinned on Pinterest a week. We’ll see how that goes, but the whole point of Pinterest is to inspire people to create and I’d like to actually act on that inspiration! So, here’s a pin I found recently for Nutella cookies. The caption Continue Reading →

Coca-Cola Cake

Coca-Cola Cake

I was first introduced to a Coca-Cola cake in the south at an amazing and award-winning Charleston, SC restaurant called Jestine’s Kitchen. Unfortunately, they don’t have a website (just google them or look them up on yelp), but they’re amazing and you should definitely stop by if you’re in Charleston. Unfortunately, there will probably be a wait and they don’t take reservations, but the line will move pretty quickly. So, back to Coca-Cola cake. After Continue Reading →
