Pistachio & White Chocolate Macarons

So, this isn’t exactly an Irish-inspired recipe, but it IS green, so I’m lumping it in with my St. Patrick’s Day dishes! Any excuse to make a new flavors of macarons. After my initial batch, I’ve found them to be pretty easy to make. They aren’t quite as temperamental as I once thought. They do take a little bit moreRead more

Baileys & White Chocolate Cookies

Are you guys ready for some St. Patrick’s Day recipes? I have several I will be sharing with you over the next two weeks. First up, we have these quick and easy Bailey’s and white chocolate cookies. Most people have Baileys around the house during the month of March, so I wanted to find a basic cookie recipe with aRead more

Sour Cream Cookies

Almost every family has a special cookie recipe that has been passed down through generations. This is ours. My mom makes them, my grandma makes them and my great grandma made them. They are a staple around Christmas, but my mom also makes them for other occasions…like Valentine’s Day! They are essentially a SUPER soft sugar cookie with a basicRead more

Christmas Tree Meringue Cookies

Mint meringue cookies are an easy treat that you can put together in just a few minutes, with minimal effort. Most people buy meringue cookies in the store (Trader Joe’s always has a big display by the registers), but you can make them at home for a fraction of the cost with a few ingredients you probably have on hand.Read more

Gingerbread Men

This year I wanted to make the most classic looking and tasting gingerbread men I possibly could and here is the result! I used Rebecca Rather’s “ginger people” recipe from The Pastry Queen cookbook and decorated them with a touch of royal icing. Aren’t they cute? In my mind, this is exactly what a gingerbread man should look like. SweetRead more

Snowflake Sugar Cookies

Last year I saw these little snowflakes on one of my favorite food blogs, Annie’s Eats. I knew that this Christmas I was going to try to do my own version, even though I’m not that skilled in royal icing yet (this is only my third time). Surprisingly, they were pretty easy as long as my tip stayed free ofRead more

Raspberry Mascarpone Macarons

To celebrate my new site design, I have something special to share with you: raspberry mascarpone macarons! Macarons give me such a “yay me!” feeling when I make them. They are extremely temperamental cookies that either turn out a complete success or a complete failure (there’s not much in between), but when you get it right, it’s awesome. Most peopleRead more

Chocolate & Nutella Macarons

I’ve made these macarons 3-4 times now, but I finally got a picture to go with the recipe! I’ve only made 2 flavors of macarons, but these shells turned out a lot better than my raspberry mascarpone macs. I’ve seen a lot of pictures of different macarons and it seems like different flavored batters yield a slightly different shell. IfRead more

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

White chocolate isn’t one of my favorite things in the world, but whenever I see these cookies on a menu or dessert spread, I’m always tempted to eat one. Unfortunately (or fortunately, however you look at it) chocolate chip cookies or sugar cookies usually beat them out. I was at the grocery store last week and I was walking downRead more
