From Cupcakes to Traditional Korean Food and Everything in Between




These sweet and crunchy chocolate pocky bring up a huge nostalgic factor for me. Every visit to the Asian market with my mama saw me with these on the way out.  It was like our reward for good behavior.  Since then, I’ve formulated a recipe that captures its essence and I’ve only grown to love [...]

Salted Caramel Pretzel Brownies


J will be the first to tell you that I’m incapable of exercising moderation, particularly when it comes to good eats.  I’m an all or nothing kind of gal.  Case in point?  These 3 layer brownies.  Homemade salted caramel sauce {a recipe that only takes 3 minutes, by the way} gets generously oozed over the salty [...]

Mini Chocolate Donuts {Baked}


My only regret in life?  Not ever owning an easy bake oven.  {Kidding…kind of}  Boy was I envious of all my friends that would have me over to watch as miniature treats would magically emerge from that iconic pink oven. Ah, sweet nostalgia. So when I saw this miniature donut pan at the shop, the [...]

Oreo Pudding Cookies


To be quite honest, I had no idea what these even were but per baby brother and his friends requests, I tested these in my kitchen, having a good ole’ time ripping open nostalgic pudding packs, that unmistakable smell taking me back to middle school again.  I produced this recipe by scaling back both the [...]

Flourless Chocolate Cookies


These cookies are light and crisp on the edges, chewy and rich in the center, and have a delicate crackly crust on top, a hybrid cookie and brownie if you will.  I actually made these when I ran out of flour and I’m happy to report I’ve made them several times afterwards because they’re just [...]

Paleo Brownies


What is paleo?  A primal diet including whole foods of wild plants/animals while excluding grains, legumes, dairy, sugar or refined oils. With the new year, comes new resolutions and a wise man once told me that moderation is the key {applying to more than just diets}.  These are revamped with healthy additions, making them paleo [...]

Peppermint Brownies


These are a triple threat with a bottom layer of deep, dark chocolate fudgy brownies, a middle pink layer of creamy peppermint, and a top glaze of glossy chocolate sauce.  When devoured at room temperature, the entire bite melts in your mouth but it’s also good to know that these keep their shape with each [...]

Mochi Rice Cakes {Easy} 찹쌀떡


These are quick, easy, and delicious and would make fabulous gifts when tucked into pretty tissue in festive boxes.  If mocha doesn’t happen to be your thing, you can also substitute the coffee for water and chocolate for the traditional sweetened red bean paste {or anything else your heart desires}. 4.8 from 5 reviews Mochi [...]
