Super Bowl Stuffed Spinach Sausage Bread

sausage9

  SUPER BOWL is coming! We are two weeks away from football food bliss, beer, and fabulous TV commercials. I'm sure somewhere in there you can sneak in a little actual football, but for me its all about the chips and dip marathon and hilarious commercials. Obviously not a surprise to you all!   And seriously, these commercials better be good this year. Like Force Volkswagon good, or a nip slip from Bruno Mars at Halftime, because if I am missing my Sunday night Downton … [Read more...]

Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars

pumpkincheesecake6

Happy day-after-Haloween!   There is only one way to cure that candy hangover.... and its obviously with some more sugar. I like to live by the Sunday brunch bloody mary rule...booze + booze = no booze. Same goes for Snickers bars. I'm pretty sure...   ...Hmm....no...... definitely. I created this recipe for the fabulous Stephie from Eat Your Heart Out. I'm guest posting on her blog today so click HERE for the link to her super delish website and also to see my recipe … [Read more...]

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

pumpkinbread1

Mmm...mmm...I LOVE pumpkin bread. And if you're reading this post I know you're right there with me. There are exactly 12 zillion billion recipes for pumpkin bread on the internet and I literally cannot stop myself from clicking on any and every recipe I find.   I would be the world's worst lab rat. I'd be that one stuck in the cheese maze for life  with absolutely zero conditioning skills. They would dangle a piece of cheese in front of a trap door and I would literally take … [Read more...]

Halloween Graveyard Oreo Brownies

bestgravyard

 BOO!   How cute is he?? I am a firm believer that Halloween should be reserved for friendly ghosts, Glinda the Good Witch, Disney Princess costumes, and free candy for all.   No thank you to Mr. Scary Clown...creepy house at the end of the street...and movies rated higher than PG- 13. I will never ever forget my first (and ONLY) Haunted House...after surviving at least 6 back to back heart attacks and a possibly sprained ankle from jumping sky high at ever corner... I MADE … [Read more...]

Mini Apple Crumble Pies

miniapple7

I just had the most FUN catering event this week! It was complete dessert spread - fall themed. My favorite.   Twist my arm... um...YES I will make pumpkin cupcakes...mini apple crumble pies... maple sugar cookies...double chocolate thumbprints. And then I will eat it all. I am in a self induced sugar coma, recovering from a week of cookie taste testing and a crazy yesterday of party execution.   I am like a one woman jam band at the moment trying to orchestrate some … [Read more...]

Baked Chicken Fingers with Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce

chickenfingers10

I am SUCH a condiment girl.   Ketchup. Honey Mustard. Mayo... Miracle Whip (forget those commercials that make you pick sides). I dip french fries in honey. Eggs in salsa... eat mayonaise and tomato sandwiches....so its only natural that one of my favorite foods on earth are Chicken Fingers. The holy grail of dippers.   The only problem is that most chicken fingers you find at restaurants are battered, deep fried, and loaded with calories. With a 2 am Wendy's run as an … [Read more...]

cobblerking

Happy Holiday Weekend!! Ok so I understand that posting a red white and blue cobbler the day after the 4th of July is like posting a ginger cookie recipe the day after Christmas. But my organizational skills that I promised last week should be coming in the mail soon....so with any luck if I start planning now I might get a stuffing recipe up for Thanksgiving!   I hope you all had fabulous 4th of Julys! The weather was stunning in Chicago - 80s, sunny, with a breeze :) Perfect for … [Read more...]

Woo woo!! Tomorrow is moving day into my new apartment for the summer!! I'm knee deep in boxes of kitchen equipment, high heels, and procrastinated laundry...

I am absolutely so proud of … [Read more...]

Blueberry Sugar Shortcakes with Mango Compote

shortcake

ahh! hi! Sorry, I feel like I've been seriously cheating on you all lately. I've been cooking, baking, and cooking obnoxiously more (as usual) but instead of sharing it with you all I have been EATING it all! Oops. Life's been crazy busy lately so I've had absolutely no time to to take pretty pics and write about it. Only enough time to shove it in my own mouth. Things are going to start settling down though next week so get ready for some full force Whipped recipes!   I've been … [Read more...]

Vegan Cinnamon Pull Apart Bread (Monkey Bread)

monkeybread16

  Woo! So excited for brunch this Sunday! Bring on the pancakes, pastries, omelets, and mimosas! Flowers are blooming and the weather's getting warmer, but I think my favorite part about Spring is that every other weekend is some new excuse to celebrate with Brunch! (Easter? Mom's Day?? Wedding Showers??). Mom - totally excited to celebrate your awesomeness on Mother's Day. But I'm kind of really excited to celebrate that all-you-can-eat brunch buffet too...   Andddd I know … [Read more...]
