OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Have you ever had a dry, crumbly and flavorless scone?  I have.  Countless times.  I decided long ago that I’d banish those to replace them with the words moist, soft, tender, and buttery.  This is exactly what my recipe will bring you.  There are several tips and tricks that I share with you in this [...]

Pocky

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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 [...]

Pumpkin Spice FroYo

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Though human nature dictates that we always want what we cannot have, this seems particularly true for me when it comes to the realm of all things edible.  Since the move, I can’t seem to find any frozen yogurt {or a Starbucks, for that matter} and after wistfully yearning and salivating over the posts for [...]

Hummingbird Cupcakes with Pineapple Flowers

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The very first time I ever sank my teeth into a hummingbird cake, I recall gleefully devouring what I figured to be a fancy banana cake.  Though not entirely false, it’s a quintessentially southern confection studded with banana, pineapple and toasted pecans.  The crowning of fluffy cream cheese frosting sets it off and nestled on [...]

Coconut Macaroons

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

There are several reasons I enjoy these cookies.  First, I’m a fan of all coconut products. Then, there’s the fact that they’re slightly crisp on the edges yet soft and chewy in the center. Plus, they’re easy peasy, just using one bowl and come together in no time at all. Try these today because you’re [...]

Salted Caramel Pretzel Brownies

1

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 [...]

Hokey Pokey or Honeycomb Toffee Candy {Easy 5 Minute Recipe}

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Oddly enough, one of my highest rated videos is about a 5 minute glass candy recipe.  I’ve since gotten so many requests to do more easy candy videos and it occurred to me that this puffy, spongy candy that I’ve been eating since I was a kid would be a perfect one to do next. [...]

Key Lime Bars

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

There’s something about living on this island that makes me crave a number of things everyday.  Ice cream or shaved ice, piña coladas, and lots of fresh citrus.  I can’t deny that I’ve had one or more everyday but rationalize that all the swimming makes it a reasonable choice.  Seems like sound logic to me. When [...]

Mini Chocolate Donuts {Baked}

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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 [...]
