Edible Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

We are all guilty of eating raw cookie dough and while no one I know has ever gotten sick from salmonella, I'm willing to try consuming it the safe way. Safe to eat cookie dough takes all of about ten minutes to make and might just be a little too easy. As some one who usually eats one or two dollops …

Kelly Nelson’s Texas Sheet Cake

Looking at most of these photos you would never know I experienced a major baking fail when making Rad Mom, Kelly Nelson’s Texas Sheet Cake. Sh*t happens when you bake and sometimes it is not always pretty. I was just reading an article about a mom who dropped her daughter’s perfect birthday cake right …

Grown Ups Only: Colorful Tequila Lollipops

Cosmopolitan featured these Tequila Lollipops in a video that went viral and when I saw it I set out to make the pops. Turns out, Cosmopolitan’s recipe left out some crucial information – like the temperature the syrup needs to be before it reaches the hard crack phase required for candy making. Needless to say, our …

French Apple Tart

With Bastille Day on Friday we have all things French on the brain! If your little ones are a little older, Zelda and I fully approve of throwing a French themed tea party with this delicious French Apple Tart. Working with puff pastry is always a little intimidating because it is so delicate. I was worried that this recipe might …

Rachel Leykind’s Juicy Baklava

Full disclosure: My baby daddy is Greek and I’ve never made baklava before. This was my first attempt and I made two aesthetically fatal errors – I didn’t grind the nuts into a powder and I froze the phyllo dough prior to making the recipe. BIG MISTAKE. I received this dessert recipe from Rad Mom, Rachel …

Easy to Make Bunny Approved Easter Bark

There are a ton of things we love about this time of year and one of them is that everything seems to have a pastel color scheme. Easter Bark is a candy-centric recipe that looks pretty but is so easy to make, anyone can do it! We scooped up some of our favorite chocolate eggs from Oriental Trading and added …

Happy Easter: Bunny Bottom Cupcakes

When Zelda got home from the park, Bunny Bottom Easter Cupcakes were in the kitchen waiting for her. I allowed her to climb up on the counter and she carefully selected which of the Bunny Bottom Cupcakes she wanted to eat. Two minutes later, her face was covered in green frosting. Her addiction to anything cake based is …

Lale Ketcham’s 3-Step Snacks Your Little One Will Flip Over

Some people just get it when it comes to children and Lale Ketcham is one of those people. Lale is our newest Rad Mom and the owner of Windy City Bebe, a super cool kids’ clothing and accessories store right here in Chicago (don’t worry, they sell online too!). This week, she gave us something special – the Holy Grail …

The Most Magical Lucky Charms Homemade Shamrock Shake

The highly-anticipated Shamrock Shake makes its McDonald’s debut every March in anticipation of St. Patrick’s Day. And while we’re all for the occasional McDonald’s run (everything in moderation), making a Shamrock Shake at home is so much more fun. Using organic ice cream from Three Twins feels a little bit healthier (even though it might not be) and we love …

Alana Mitchell’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

Alana Mitchell’s chocolate chip cookies are delicious enough to be in a bakery. Soft, slightly crunchy on the edges and topped with flakes of sea salt, they have everything you would ever want in a chocolate chip cookie. As it goes with most cookies, they are best served warm. Beware, once you make these you’re going to digest …
