Favorite Recipes of 2013

Out on the town toasting the holidays with my dad! Hi! It's me. Kristina... Remember??   I feel like I need to reintroduce myself after this long hiatus I've taken from blogging over the holidays! Things like sugar cookies, onDemand movie marathons, and literally doing nothing have gotten in the way of me being anything close to productive. I just shamelessly self tanned (little NYE prep - which may or may not have been a terrible decision, we'll see what color I turn tomorrow...) … [Read more...]

Mini Apple Crumble Pies

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...]

Skinny Mini Apple Crisps

  Mm..mmm! Apple crisps are the epitome of Fall. I know Pumpkin is usually the popular kid on the playground but lets not forget who is first to recess! It is apple season guys and ALL I want to eat are apples. Especially those covered in buttery crumble and baked warm with cinnamon....and maybe some ice-cream. I'm sorry but this post it 100% selfish... it was Friday... and I really just wanted apple crisp. Like really, really bad. All week my mailbox was stuffed with cooking … [Read more...]

Whole Grain Peach Blueberry Cobbler & a King Arthur Flour GIVEAWAY!

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.

The weather was stunning in Chicago - 80s, sunny, with a breeze :) Perfect for … [Read more...]

Individual Chocolate Cream Pies and My First Blog Award!

Valentine's Day might be for sharing love, but no one said anything about sharing dessert. These little individual pies are perfect portions of creamy chocolate and fluffy whipped cream on top of a chocolate chip graham cracker crust. Mmmmm....! I love baking individual sized deserts for small get togethers or holidays because I think something about everyone getting their own personal portion says "I made this specially for you". I think its shows some extra love. Plus, it makes you feel … [Read more...]

Butternut Squash and Goat Cheese Galette

I had a great Thanksgiving, I hope you all did too! We hit everything on the checklist this year... lots of family. too much food. football. too much food....and even more food to bring home (actually thats a lie, we accidentally left it in my aunt's fridge. My dad was so sad he said about 3 words on the way home.) It was pretty low key. We visited my grandpa in the nursing home, swung by my mom's brother's family's place, then had dinner at my dad's brother's place. By the way that would now … [Read more...]
