Alfajores

As a valentine, would this cookie work with a card that said “I’d alfajore like you to be my valentine.” Is that a stretch? I think that one of these in a cellophane bag is the just the thing to tell someone they’re bomb. I popped all of these (except for the sample cookie, obvz) in the freezer for a cookie emergency of the “Shucks, you’re the best!” variety. I think these cookies are cute…

Banana Bread Beer Muffins

My mom brought me this tray at Christmas and I think it might be my new favorite. It looks like a dreamy Valentine! And it makes these muffins feel really good about themselves too. I can tell they’re super confident in their red outfits, with their powdered sugar sprinkles. And these are so much more than just a brown muffin. They’ve got style, they’ve got class, they’ve got beer. And they’re tasty! I put some…

Orange Cardamom Crinkles

I’m obviously head over heels in love with the chocolate orange combo. I mean, I’ve sconed,¬†brioched, frozen, and now cookied again. Can’t stop won’t stop.

Not to mention, these are soft, dreamy, love-worthy cookies. Trust me, ok? Please note: this…

Orange Ricotta Pancakes

Saturday night I had brussel sprouts for dinner. Sunday morning I had these guys. A breakfast fit for Marie Antoinette. If only I would’ve paired pink champagne with this stack of heaven. So there you go! I’m on the vegetable and pancake diet. I’ve wanted to make ricotta pancakes since I had some dreamy ones at Five Leaves in New York. I guess I should be adding ricotta to every pancake I eat from now…

Key Lime Meltaway Cookies

I’ve been making waffles and pizza for dinner. I’ve been making waffles sandwiches for lunch and drinking beers in the backyard after work. I’ve had¬†key lime cookies in my oven and powdered sugar on my outfit. What I love about these cookies is that they aren’t too sweet. They’re perfectly zesty. And you can make these in the morning and deliver them to your favorites before noon. (I’m a morning person who wakes up with…

Chocolate Salami

For Jake’s birthday, I also made him this chocolate salami. You see, since last year he’s been making sausage at home! He’s made garlic wine, chorizo, andouille, spicy Italian and more. So I figured I’d make him a dessert salami. (Why not, right?) When I walked in and held it up saying, “Look what I made you!” I’m pretty sure he thought I made a sausage somehow. It’s a chocolate prank! One thing that’s cool…
