Desserts

Coconut Almond Truffles

I know Valentine’s Day is kind of a Hallmark holiday, but Matt and I will be using it as an excuse to eat a lot of truffles. Two years ago, we ordered a black truffle and had a multi-course feast. We didn’t get our act together last year and totally regretted it, so this year…it’s [read more →]

Vanilla Bean and Cinnamon Chia Pudding

I’m getting into the peak of my marathon training and, like last year, I’m trying to focus on what I can control: eating healthy food! For some reason I thought training for my second marathon would be much easier than the first. Yeah, not so much. I’ve stopped and started up again several times due [read more →]

First of all, happy (belated) Mother’s Day to all mothers out there! As usual, our mother’s day celebration over the weekend revolved around lots of good eats. My mom had been sick all week, but luckily felt better and regained her appetite just in time for the weekend. She actually had a conference to go [read more →]

Nutella Brownies

Testing out recipes for catering jobs has given me a great excuse to bake. I don’t normally like having trays of baked goods sitting around the house for just the two of us, but you gotta do what you gotta do… Last weekend, I was trying to come up with a dessert for an Italian-themed [read more →]

Spanish Hot Chocolate

Like I mentioned in my last post, my life is kind of up in the air right now. There’s the fact that we don’t know where we’re living in the fall. I’m also not used to not getting a regular paycheck… It’s not like I can sit around feeling bad for myself. After all, I [read more →]

Salted Chocolate Sandwiches

These salted chocolate sandwiches were our impromptu dessert on Valentine’s Day. Matt originally got the idea from Zingerman’s Guide to Good Eating and makes it whenever we have some chocolate and bread laying around the apartment. The chocolate gets all rich and melty between the crispy slices of buttered bread. He always finishes it with [read more →]

Arroz Con Leche Brulee

I don’t think I realized how delicious arroz con leche was until I was in Spain last month. We had SO MUCH of it there, and I didn’t come across a single version that I didn’t like. My favorite was definitely at El Ñeru, where they actually bruleed the top. Oddly enough, I actually own [read more →]

Plum Cake Tatin

I noticed that my mom had bought some prune plums last week that were ready to be eaten. I’ve seen Ina Garten make this Plum Cake Tatin on her show Barefoot Contessa many times (you know how Food Network likes it’s reruns), so I thought it would be the perfect thing to bring when we [read more →]

Key Lime Pie

I’m home in Boston this week and you know what that means – lots of cooking! My parents and I are not huge dessert people, but when we do make dessert, we usually make key lime pie (my mom’s favorite) or pecan pie (my dad’s favorite). My mom is from Florida and has always made [read more →]
