Easter Recipe Round-Up

No Comments 28 March 2013

We published a spring recipe round-up a couple of weeks ago, and it was so popular we thought we’d do it again! I peruse far too many blogs on a daily basis, and bookmark thousands of recipes for future cooking/baking projects, so it’s a lot of fun for me to curate a shortlist of some of the best to share with you!

Easter is right around the corner, so in case you haven’t figured out what you’re making for the holiday, these recipes can provide some guidance and inspiration. Not celebrating Easter? No worries! Most of these  recipes double as seasonal spring recipes too :)

Pumpkin Magic Bars

No Comments 29 October 2012

Pumpkin is the flavor of the season right now, and we’re totally embracing it! First we shared some Chewy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies, and today I’ve got another great recipe for Pumpkin Magic Bars.

If you’ve ever had traditional Magic Bars, then you know what they’re all about, but if you haven’t then you’re in for a treat! Magic Bars are one of the easiest things you can make, they’re customizable to your specific tastes, and they are sinfully delicious.

Magic Bars start with a cookie crust, traditionally graham cracker crumbs and butter mixed together, and pressed into a pan. The crust is then layered with a myriad of toppings, starting with condensed milk, then assorted chips (chocolate, white chocolate, etc.), chopped nuts, and coconut. Continue Reading

Chewy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

No Comments 26 October 2012

Since it’s the season for it, we’ve been doing a lot of cooking and baking with pumpkin lately, and I have to say I really love it. Pumpkin on it’s own has a pretty bland, boring, squashy flavor, but added to baked goods it adds a unique, pleasing flavor and a wonderful moisture that you can’t get from a lot of other ingredients. Pumpkin pie is probably the most traditional use for the common orange squash, but every now and again it’s really fun to incorporate it into other kinds of dishes — like these pumpkin cookies!

Typically when you put pumpkin in a cookie, it turns out being rather cake-like and puffy. It’s hard to achieve a chewy-in-the-middle, crispy-around-the-edges kind of cookie when you use pumpkin, but these cookies do it! This is hands down the best pumpkin cookie I’ve ever made or tried, and I really can’t say enough good things about it. Continue Reading

Minestrone Soup

No Comments 23 October 2012

Soup is one of the greatest ways to combat the colder weather, right up there with warm pumpkin lattes and cozy fall coats. Most restaurants that you’ll step into have their own signature flavors, but whipping up a simple and delicious soup in the comfort of your own home is actually quite simple.

Whether you’d prefer a smooth soup like cream of tomato or butternut squash, or a soup with more texture like the minestrone shown here, there are plenty of one-pot recipes that require little time to prepare, but are seriously warming and delicious. Continue Reading
