Outrageous Brownies

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, how convenient! This is a must make recipe if you love dark rich fudgy brownies. It comes loaded with nuts- (although I didn’t put them in mine because of a nut allergy in the family) – I think the nuts would help break up the intensity of the chocolate…

Rustic Artisan Bread

For me a loaf of good French bread is about as good as it gets. I could live on bread and in fact I think I did during high school. Living where I live, in Northern California, good French bread is everywhere so I am rather spoiled. The idea of making my own never really…

Birthday Luau Cake

I will admit this post is one from two summers ago that I started and never shared but the cake is too cute not to put on here, so I am shamelessly digging it up now. 🙂 My cousin’s baby boy turned two and to celebrate they threw a luau themed party. They live down…

Jenny’s Tuna Salad

I know, I basically abandoned this website for over a year then I have the audacity to return with a Salad recipe, rude just rude; even worse it’s a lousy picture taken from my phone. But….before you click the x on the top right, hear me out. Yes this is mostly a baking blog, yes…

Chocolate cupcakes with malted frosting and toasted marshmallow filling

The first time I spotted these cupcakes I knew they would be perfect for a coworker’s birthday. Never did I imagined I would find these to be one of the best cupcakes I have ever had. I am not a chocolate cupcake person, alway been partial to vanilla but something about the combination of malt, chocolate and…

Chorizo and Eggs

Before I met my husband I had never heard of chorizo and boy was I missing out. It is one of the best and easiest breakfasts you can make. We started out getting this breakfast at our favorite local Mexican restaurant but we kept thinking, we can do this better at home and for a lot…

Cupcake Battle

Last week here at work they had a huge BBQ Rib competition and cupcake battle, people from all over the state came to compete. After some coaxing by my friends and coworkers I entered the cupcake competition clueless as to how I would make my cupcakes BBQ themed. They were even having someone from Sift Cupcakery…

Mango Smoothie

This smoothie is about as simple as it gets and it’s my new favorite snack. If you need a little detox from the chocolate craziness of this week, this will work. It calls for fresh mangos, which is fine but frozen would be easier if you are in a hurry. My Trader Joe’s for some…

Chocolate and Strawberry Cupcakes

This post has two recipes I made last year but I felt the ideas where too good not to share and they could both be perfect for Valentine’s  treats.  With Valentine’s day on a  Tuesday this week and the ‘plague’ going through Gattor’s school right now, things have been challenging. But I plan on making…

Blood Orange Rosemary Fizz

I think its safe to say if you put a blood orange in it I will love it. There is something about the beautiful color and extra tangy-ness that takes anything its in to a new exciting level. This drink is a lot of fun but if the idea of rosemary in your drink if…

Cheddar Bay Biscuits with Home Made Bisquick

I know you have done it; gone to a restaurant and filled up on bread… well I have. I can think of three restaurants off the top of my head that I love because of their bread. I will admit sometimes I feel ordering a meal is not necessary because I could simply scarf down…

Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday season. I think for me it was a whirlwind of craziness. I had plans to make and post so many things and unfortunately fell short, actually I totally sucked. This year I hope to make a better schedule for myself and get many more recipes on here to…
