Cinnamon Toast Crunch Banana Bread

Happy Thursday!  Can you believe it’s almost the middle of January?  Heads up, tomorrow is Friday the 13th, so watch out I haven’t been a good January food blogger in the sense that as so much of America is trying to eat a little less chocolate and sugar post-holiday, I’ve Read more…

{I Bleed Orange} Blood Orange Chobani Cookies

Close runner-up to the above cookie recipe names:  ”Let’s CHO Orange” Cookies.

Sugar Cookie Bars

Happy Monday, guys! How about that Super Bowl last night, eh? I’m not a huge NFL fan but given my locale, it’s a positive thing when the NY team wins. 🙂 Except for the Yankees. Never the Yankees. Anyway… I bet you’ve about had it with salty snacks after last Read more…

DIY: Box of Homemade Chocolates

Please refrain from critiquing my elementary art skills. I’m quite proud of them. 😉 I’ve been getting back to my roots in the kitchen lately, and by that I mean, rather than walking into the kitchen knowing fully well what I’m going to make, I just sort of let things Read more…
