Berry Pavlova with Chocolate Drizzle

The coronavirus pandemic has taken a lot of things from us collectively. Lives, health, daily freedoms, jobs, money... Some of these things are obviously more important than others. One of the things that it has taken is simultaneously trivial and powerful - our celebrations. No one is dying for lack of a birthday party, but... Continue Reading →

Rainbow Rice Krispie Treats

Shout out to all the moms out there who have their kids duped into thinking the Rice Krispie treats they make them are such labors of love. (I'm trying to be you one day!) Best joke ever - Rice Krispie treats certainly are delicious, but SO EASY to make! (Don't worry if you were fooled;... Continue Reading →

Apple Cinnamon Galette

It's well documented on this blog (and if you know me in real life...) that I don't like/am mildly terrified of baking. But every fall, like clockwork, I feel the need to bake something with apples in it. It's a personal rite of fall passage, along with my need to decorate with tiny gourds, take... Continue Reading →

Reese’s Pieces Bars

It's that time of the month again... end of the month treats! If it weren't for end of the month/end of a rotation treats, this blog would pretty much never have any dessert or baked goods on it. [Check out some of our previous end of the month treats, like... Strawberry Streusel Bars, Mint Chocolate Bars,... Continue Reading →

Chocolate Rugelach

We may have mentioned it once or twice, or a million times, but Selim definitely has the sweet tooth in this family. I could eat chips & dip for the rest of my life, but Selim could easily subsist on sweets, especially chocolate! We like to joke that he has a separate dessert stomach. It's... Continue Reading →

Pumpkin Roll

I've had this recipe pinned for a long time, because I knew Selim would like it, but I found it really intimidating. When I bake, things just never turn out as pretty as the should. {I blame my friend/old roommate Terry - she is an amazing baker/dessert wizard. I'm just assuming that when we lived together, any...

Spiced Chocolate Sandwich Cookies

Some friends of our were getting together for a Sunday evening get together, nothing fancy, but of course we wanted to bring something tasty. Since it's technically autumn (even though it's 85 & humid here in SC), spiced cookies sounded delicious and with chocolate, you can't go wrong, right? Spiced desserts are fun to make...

Honey Baked Peaches

You know those word association games/tests that psychologists (at least on TV) use to gain deep insight into your psyche? You know the one - they ask you to say the first word that pops into your mind when they say something seemingly innocuous like "mother" and then learn a lot about you depending on...

Strawberry Streusel Bars

As we've mentioned before (see Mint Chocolate Bars), we like to bring a treats in for the staff when we finish a rotation. It's the least we can do for the people who spend their time and effort training us! We're not the only one's who do this - but we do try to have... Continue Reading →
