Hello friends! I know I said I’d have this recipe to you by Monday, but sometimes life gets in the way. This weekend it did so in the form of internet/phone access, or lack there of, and as such I could not successfully prepare this post for you. I guess I could have just shared the recipe […]
Hello friends! I’m back with more Halloween desserts. Today the focus is on Devil’s Food Cupcakes. A little bit creepy but a whole lot of classy, these Devil’s Food Cupcakes with Wicked Red Velvet Frosting are sure to complete any Halloween party. I’ve never been into the whole “gory Halloween food” thing that happens in […]
Double, double, toil and trouble, fire burn and cauldron bubble… … Oh hello there friends!! I was just baking up another batch of these adorably spooky cauldron cookie cups. I definitely wasn’t brewing an actual batch of witch’s brew to put spells on people. Though that could be fun… No! Nope, we only brew up batches […]

It’s just infinitely more fun to bake when doing so does not transport you to Dante’s Inferno. Instead, my apartment remains pleasantly warm and smelling of freshly baked beer bread. Beer […]
Hello friends! Well, I made it halfway into September before posting a pumpkin-related recipe. Aren’t you proud shocked appalled impatient impressed? I have to say it didn’t take a whole lot of effort on my part: the first week of September hit mid 90s here in NJ and it’s hard to imagine pumpkins and crisp, […]
Hello friends! For today’s Fear No Food post, I thought we’d get right down to the main event: homemade gnocchi.
