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. […]

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 […]

Beef and Broccoli

I’m guilty, are you? Somedays are so crazy, the last thing you want to do is slave in the kitchen making a meal from scratch, especially if you’re like me and you’ve already spent the entire day in there already.  The alternative?  To gravitate towards something instantly satisfying.  And on days when you crave comfort?  Often […]

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

Screen Shot 2014-12-16 at 4.07.36 PM

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

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

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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 […]

Korean Potatoes 감자조림

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

  I’ve expressed my love for the egg several times before but the humble potato comes in a close second.  It’s just so versatile and patient.  Weeks can go by and you won’t hear the potato grumbling to be used up or envious of your attentions elsewhere and when you need it, its applications are […]

Foolproof Gravy

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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 […]

Monkey Bread

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I may have a new addiction…and I may or may not have devoured more than half this tin the moment I wrapped up filming. Monkey bread is beautifully composed of pillowy soft balls of dough that are buttered, rolled in sugar and spice then soaked in gooey, sticky caramel sauce. Welcome to my newest obsession. […]

No-Bake Pumpkin Pie

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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 […]
