Oreo Fudge

My family was in town last week.  It’s always great to see them and spend some time with family where I can go back and sleep in my own bed.  Plus they buy me dinner lots and I like that too. At the end of their trip, they gifted me all the snacks and food […]

Vanilla Latte Ice Cream

I love ice cream.  My boyfriend and I used to go to Cold Stone a lot and eat so much that we’d swear off ice cream.  It was all fun and games, except one time he actually meant it.  Every time after this fateful day when I’d ask, “Cold Stone?” he’d reply, “I don’t eat […]

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’ve been doing some research on soufflés in preparation for September’s Scary Adventure.  Everyone says that oven temperature is really important.  I knew that my oven temperatures are pretty accurate (thanks to my handy dandy oven thermometer), but I wasn’t sure if it heated up evenly.  I read somewhere that you could put a bunch […]

Holiday Spiked Coffee

Since I blog about food, I tend to check out other food blogs too.  Smart, right?  Check out the competition.  Just kidding.  It’s more like learn from people that are better at cooking, or photography, or both and get some good recipe ideas along the way.  As the holidays approach, I’ve noticed more and more […]

Sugar Free Banana Bread (and review of a no calorie sweetener)

Sugar Free Banana Bread

Most people have their typical banana bread recipe that they always go to when they want banana bread.  I got this one from my mom.  It’s the banana bread I had growing up.  I was surprised to see that it required 2 cups of sugar to make 2 loaves of the delicious treat.  “I’m never going […]
