Monkey Bread Sticky Buns

image

I’m pretty sure most people have had monkey bread before. But in case you haven’t, and have no idea what this strangely named concoction is, it’s a gooey, sugary, sticky, cinnamon-flavored sweet bread. That you get to eat for breakfast. It’s absolutely delicious. However, every time...

Soft Sugar Cookies

image

I learned something about myself last weekend: when it comes to decorating cookies, I have virtually no artistic ability. I’m not kidding when I say that what you see here is the best of the bunch…that’s how they made it onto the blog. It doesn’t...

Stuffed Baguettes (aka Stromboli)

Ever since I made the French baguettes a few weeks ago, I’ve been wanting to make this stuffed version. The dough is exactly the same (which is great, because it’s delicious!). The only difference is that you roll it up with a filling inside....

Chocolate Mousse

Don’t let the simplicity of this picture fool you. This is one of the best desserts I’ve ever had. It’s rich and creamy and light and completely delicious.  Chocolate, butter, eggs, sugar and cream – 5 ingredients that come together to create a decadent dessert that’s...

French Baguettes

image

For my French Dinner Party, I knew I needed some authentic tasting French bread. I have a very simple French bread recipe that I tend to fall back on, but for this occasion, I knew I needed something a little more “real.” Enter King Arthur...

image

Ever since watching the movie Julie and Julia, I’ve wanted to make the signature dish from the movie – Boeuf Bourguignon. My parents were visiting from Pennsylvania this weekend, and when Foodbuzz chose me as one of the bloggers to participate in their 24,...
