Easter Peep Dip

Chocolate Peanut Butter Peep Dip is blowing up on Pinterest! We couldn’t resist putting our own spin on this adorable pastel treat. We filled our Peep Dip with chocolate and white chips, peanut butter and Kix cereal for an extra crunch. Golden Oreos and Animal Crackers are the perfect vessel on which to get the Peep Dip into …

Hoppy Easter Mini Carrot Cakes

ATTENTION! We spotted the Easter Bunny and she is all about Mini Carrot Cakes! Okay, well, not really. We spotted our rabbit Shakira but for this recipe she is our official stand in Easter Bunny (see below for cuteness overload). We love “Zelda sizing” our recipes and had to make two-tiered Mini Carrot Cakes. To make sure we didn’t …

Rainbow Swiss Roll Cake

Nothing beats a delicious rainbow cake on St. Patrick’s Day! Zelda and I decided to give ourselves a new challenge by baking our first ever Rainbow Sprinkle Swiss Roll and while there were a few tense moments (it’s quite fragile), we had a ton of fun making it. Our Swiss Roll ended up cracking a bit, but we still think …

St. Patrick’s Day Rainbow Meringues

How is it already March?! I feel like I’m still getting used to the idea of 2018, but here I am already making St. Patrick’s Day rainbow meringues. After what feels like a never-ending winter, we are so ready to slide into spring. Zelda and I won’t be in Chicago when the leprechauns come to town because we are heading …

Pink & White French Macarons

Zelda and I have been anxiously waiting for the right time to test our baking skills and make French macarons. We heard they were really challenging, so we did a lot of research beforehand. Quite a few things can go wrong and it’s incredibly important to blend the almond flour, powdered sugar and salt properly and then sift. If you …

5 Delicious Kid-Friendly New Year’s Recipes with Under 5 Ingredients

Keeping little babes entertained while limiting their screen time can be a challenge, especially over winter break. With the wintry weather and crowds, staying at home has never sounded so appealing. I fully understand the need to embrace a pajama day (or seven). So, what’s the best way to enjoy time at home while busying your babe’s mind? Head to …

The Night Before Christmas Cookies

These cookies are just for Santa and sleepy parents! (Seriously, they have coffee in them.) Made to help him travel around the world in one night, these delicious chocolate cookies are a fun adult only dessert. Our friends at Chef'd gave us this recipe but we put our own twist on the baked goods with crushed candy canes and mini …

Trick-Or-Treat Halloween Layer Cake

We all know better eggs make better cakes, which is why we used pasture raised eggs from Handsome Brook Farm to make our Trick-or-Treat Halloween Layer Cake. And trust us, this is definitely NOT a trick! Using better eggs impacts the overall flavor and moisture level of the cake. This is huge because the last thing you want is a crumbly cake falling …

Scary Monster Cookies

If you’re looking to entertain your babe for a solid two hours I’ve got you covered. (Side note: If you aren’t making these with a toddler the entire process is much faster.) I cannot even properly describe how much fun Zelda had making Scary Monster Cookies with me. Sometimes it is best not to mess with a good thing and …

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 …
