Riesling Poached Pears

Now, I’m no baker, but I love dessert. It seems like a meal isn’t complete without a little something sweet at the end. Eventually I want to learn how to make a chocolate tart, soufflé, or something else that’s sweet and fancy, but that’s a question for my friends in the baking program at school….

Recipe: 7 Layer Magic Bars

I love when a new recipe just falls into my lap, especially one as delicious as this. My friend Sierra, who is a standard fixture in my home and life, made this for me the other day. It was incredible. I was fighting people for the last bite. This is a crazy simple dessert, but…

Recipe: Pumpkin–Coconut Pie

I have a confession to make: up until a few months ago, I didn’t like coconut.  I’ve always been hesitant about the flavor and the texture of the flakes, but I have so many friends that love it, I have been slowly incorporating it into my life.  Enter this awesome recipe from Food Network, which…

Sometimes you can get inspiration from anywhere, and just a picture can set off a wonderful cooking experience.  That’s what…

Recipe: Easiest–Ever Key Lime Pie

I love Key Lime Pie.  I always have and I hope I always will.  I’m actually surprised I haven’t written about it yet.  I actually searched my own blog about five times last night, unable to believe I haven’t posted about the pie.  I enjoy my desserts more on the tart side, and I don’t…
