Twix Ice Cream Sandwich Cake

Twix Ice Cream Sandwich Cake for No-Bake summer sweet tooth satisfaction

  I only have so much virtue in my body. I try to eat well and feed my family healthy foods, and I do a pretty good job of it most of the time. But every so often, I spend all my good behaviour on things like parenting, being honest and moral, and tidying up….

Vanilla Latte Stracciatella Gelato

Vanilla Latte Straciatella Gelato plus a video tutorial

Vanilla Latte Stracciatella Gelato. It rolls trippingly from the tongue, doesn’t it? I have to be honest. I used the legit Italian word “stracciatella” mainly because it’s significantly more fun to say repeatedly than “chocolate flakes” which is what it really is. Give it a try and really draw it out- Strrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrracciatellllllllaaaaaaaaaaaah. Come on, admit…

Butterscotch Pretzel Pudding Cups

From scratch butterscotch pudding pretzel cups

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I love pudding. I could eat pudding or ice cream every single day and not be mad at all. It doesn’t hurt things that there’s an almost infinite variety of both of those, but the point is this. If it’s pudding, I’m in. (With the notable…

Kahlua Chocolate Cream Pie

Kahlua Chocolate Cream Pie

When it comes to desserts, I’m a creamy, chocolatey devotee. If it’s pudding-like (or ice cream like) I’m in. If it combines pudding or ice cream-ish qualities with chocolate? I am all over it. Such is the case with Kahlua Chocolate Cream Pie. I made this, ostensibly, for my husband’s birthday last week. He wanted…

Maple Bourbon Baklava

Maple Bourbon Baklava is like pecan pie meets dark maple syrup and takes a trip to the Middle East

You know what this is? Maple Bourbon Baklava and it’s a little evil, that’s what. I’m not going to pretend I’m even the littlest bit sorry, though, because it’s also one of the better things I’ve ever turned out of my kitchen. It’s the Northeast (of the United States) meets the Middle East (of the…
