From Cupcakes to Traditional Korean Food and Everything in Between

Holidays

Cheesecake Red Velvet Cupcakes

When I couldn’t decide whether to bring pumpkin pie or pumpkin cheesecake to a holiday party last year, I brought my pumpkin pie cheesecake instead.  These cheesecake red velvet cupcakes were created in the same spirit.  They feature a bottom layer of classic cheesecake with a moist red velvet cake layer in the middle with […]

Soft Dinner Rolls

Soft Dinner Rolls

I know that some consider a piece of bread an afterthought when having supper but for me, it’s crucial to have it present at most {if not all} meals.  What can I say?  I’m a carb-girl.  However, if it happens to be a roll that’s hard and dense, I’d rather not have it at all. […]

Christmas Crack aka Chocolate Saltine Toffee

Christmas Crack Chocolate Saltine Toffee

With its sweet and salty allure, one bite of this Christmas crack, you’ll be addicted, just as the name implies. This recipe is quite easy and multiplies endlessly, making it the perfect treat to share this holiday season and after the first few batches, I started whipping up my own versions that may or may […]

Hot Cocoa Cookies + Homemade Marshmallows {No Corn Syrup}!

Hot Cocoa Cookies

Have you ever tried a homemade marshmallow?  It wasn’t until college that I had my first taste.  Until then, I was firm on that I disliked this chewy goop, excluding the ones found in a box of lucky charms, of course.  That year could possibly be marked as the marshmallow-insaned year of the comedically gigantic marshmallows, […]

Chocolate Peppermint Cookies

Chocolate Peppermint Cookies Soft Cookies

Thick double chocolate cookies that are soft and cakey with a peppermint crackle.  These just scream Christmas to me and while I weighed out my ingredients, folding this into that, I finally allowed myself to fully immerse in the Christmas spirit {as I feel fairly strongly about not allowing Thanksgiving, my favorite holiday, to serve […]

Mini Pumpkin Pies

Mini Pumpkin Pies

I recently had the dilemma of transporting several pies to a holiday party and lo and behold 7 of said pies had apparently experienced a bit of turbulence and their delicate flaky crusts had crumbled.  The silver lining here was that I was able to hoard the buttery bits for myself, done in the spirit […]

Foolproof Gravy

Foolproof Gravy Recipe

If you can master this simple technique, the options are endless when it comes to tailor-making gravy with a personalized touch for Thanksgiving supper {or anything that requires gravy–can that be everything, please?}  I love playing around with this depending on what mood strikes.  This can range from anything from thyme to cognac {my personal […]

No-Bake Pumpkin Pie

No Bake Pumpkin Pie Trifle Mason Jar

I love pumpkin pie but faced with the prospect of baking several pies in a few weeks on top of Thanksgiving supper, I figured I’d whip up a no-bake version for myself when the craving was fierce but the effort must be kept to a minimum. Cue this layered custardy treat that involves no baking […]

No-Bake Caramel Corn

NO BAKE Caramel Corn

I love caramel corn.  I love how it can be buttery, crunchy, sweet, sticky, and salty all at once.  However, I don’t enjoy having to babysit it.  Constantly checking up on it and stirring is not my idea of a good time, especially since said caramel corn doesn’t even pay minimum wage. This recipe is […]

Gummy Worms

Natural Gummy Worms Homemade

These are so realistic that my in-house taste tester {J} nearly refused to try these.  I lay them on a bed of crushed oreos, spilling out of a tin can and when I jiggled the plate, they almost slithered!  Though after the initial hesitation, J more than happily wiggled each gummy worm into his mouth, […]
