Strawberry Banana Bread

Sometimes you go to the farmer’s market and buy a half flat of strawberries. Sometimes you have a bunch of bananas you forgot to eat in their 32 second window or perfectness. Sometimes you put all of it together to make something magical. Strawberry Banana Bread is it.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Waffles with Whipped Cream

Since it is National Cookie Day, I thought it was appropriate/necessary to create a cookie-centric recipe. I have some new ones on the line-up which will be out soon, but had to share something scrumptious today. I was thinking about how I could use Otis Spunkmeyer Chocolate Chunk Cookies in some way, and then it hit me! Chocolate Chip Cookie Waffles with Whipped Cream. Yes, the cookies are IN the waffle. I know, amazing, right? They’re a liiiiiiiitle decadent, but totally worth it. Top them with freshly whipped cream, and a dusting of powdered sugar and, treat yo’self.

Leslie Knope would totally approve of these waffles. 

As a bonus Otis Spunkmeyer is offering up a box of chocolate chunk cookies to one lucky reader. (Details are at the end of the post.)

Peach Buckle for #‎BloggerCLUE‬


It’s a bright and sparkly new year, and a new month for Blogger C.L.U.E. What a sweet way to bring in 2015! I was excited to see month’s theme, Something Sparkling and I was thrilled to be matched with girlichefa blog chock full of awesome recipes. 

As I scrolled through the plentiful posts (there were so many fantastic recipes to choose from) something about this Peach Buckle was calling my name, and I knew as soon as I saw it that I’d found the perfect treat. The original recipe called for moscato, so it was an easy switch to sub in my something sparkling- prosecco, which I often have on hand. 

For my birthday, my husband gave me a sign for the kitchen that reads, “I love cooking with wine, sometimes I even put it in the food.” And this is the perfect example! A sip for me, a splash for the peaches.

Chocolate Panettone Bread Pudding with Chocolate Butter Rum Sauce



This is one of the easiest, most delectable and simply decadent desserts to make. 

If you’ve never had panettone, go get some. Eat a quarter of it. Wait a couple of days, then make this. Even if you’ve had the delightfully, pillowy light and sweet bread, you can go ahead and get one and eat a quarter of it. Then make this a couple of days later.

Eggnog Rum Cake with White Chocolate Snow

As we ease into the New Year, and  your fridge has some Eggnog leftover from holiday celebrations,  when you don’t feel like drinking anymore of the holiday indulgence– here is a scrumptious option. This is a great cake for family dinners, brunches or those late holiday season parties. I made this Eggnog Rum Cake with White Chocolate Snow on Christmas Eve and have made it again since. It’d be great with coffee after dinner or in place of a croissant in the morning. To make it even MORE rich, you could always have a glass of punched up eggnog and rum to enhance the flavors. Personally, I’ll stick with coffee, or maybe some bubbly. 

White Chocolate Eggnog Cookies for The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap



It’s the most wonderful time of the year, which means it is time again for The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap! I was delighted to stumble upon this event last year and was quick to sign up, and excited to participate. I was thrilled to see that the event supports Cookies for Kids Cancer. If you are unfamiliar with Cookies for Kids Cancer please take a few minutes to get to know them. I’ve thrown Bake Sales to raise money for their efforts in the past and hope to do so again soon.  Read the rest of this entry »
