Cooking, Baking & Cocktail Shaking

Creamy Dill Dip

It’s quite a dreary day in Baltimore. It’s cloudy, cold, and gray outside. The weather has been so erratic this season. I mean, it was just 80 degrees and sunny this past Thursday. I was so excited that I cleaned off my deck in preparation for sittin’ and sippin’ on some cold beverages while...

Double Chocolate Banana Muffins

Double Chocolate Banana Muffins

Today, because I love ya, I made muffins. These muffins combine two flavors that are meant for each other. I’m talking about chocolate and banana. If chocolate and banana were people, they’d fall in love, get married, and live happily ever after in a house with a white picket fence. These muffins are super...

Chocolate Cookies Two Ways

Chocolate Cookies Two Ways

Today was a rough day- and I mean rough! It was also my first day back to school after a week off for spring break. It’s tough going back after a week of freedom, relaxation, and baking. I really had to force myself to get out of bed and trudge off to school. What...

Strawberry Orange Mousse

Wow, spring is in the air in Baltimore, and it feels good. I don’t know about you, but I definitely had a case of the winter blues. It’s so nice to finally see the sun and feel its warmth on my ghostly white skin. Seriously, my skin is so white that it glows- and...

Coffee Cake Pound Cake

My mom and I decided to take a road trip this weekend, so we hit the open road and headed to Pennsylvania to visit my grandparents and aunt. Road trips are my favorite (as long as it’s not too far of a trip. I start to get antsy after the four hour mark). I love them...

Buttermilk Biscuits

Sunday is my favorite day of the week. It’s the only day I really get to relax, bake, and spend time with my family. For me, Sunday is all about comfort food. What’s more comforting than a fluffy, buttery, tender biscuit? I can’t think of anything. This recipe is my grandmother’s recipe. Her mother,...

Spaghetti with Vodka Sauce

Have you ever heard of the “No recipe recipe?” It’s a recipe, yet it’s not a recipe. What? I didn’t really understand its concept until I was in the kitchen the other night experimenting with a pasta sauce. Now, I completely understand the idea behind the no recipe recipe. It allows the cook the...

Banana Cream Pie with Bourbon Caramel Drizzle

Oh my, this pie is divine (whoa, I’m not the best at rhyming). My husband is not a big fan of sweets (crazy, right?), but he will eat banana pudding. I wanted to do something a bit different, so I decided to fancy it up a bit by making a banana cream pie. The...

Ain’t No Thang But A Chicken Wing: Sweet Heat BBQ Wings

I made wings! While I was making the wings, I thought of an old high school friend who would crack me up with his saying, “Ain’t no thing but a chicken wing!” The phrase would send me in to fits of laughter every time. It wasn’t just the phrase itself that was so hilarious,...
