Have you ever watched your kids go from being semi-normal to bat-poo crazy after eating lots of sugar? I have seen my sweet little girl go from rainbows and sunshine to the Exorcist in about five minutes flat after she eats too much sugar. But here’s the problem… I’m a pastry chef. Making stuff with sugarRead More
Ultimate Oreo Cake
Have you ever woken up in the middle of the night, unable to go back to sleep? Happens to me more than I’d like, but often that’s when a lot of brainstorming takes place in my noggin. Sometimes I’d rather be sleeping, but that’s when an idea pops in my head that makes me wantRead More
I'm not 19 anymore, and it shows.
Well, at least physically I’m not. Sometimes it’s fun to be a goofball- minus the obnoxious, totally clueless life perspective from when I was 19. No, I’m not saying ALL 19 year olds are like this, just reflecting on so many of the dumb things I said or did 17 years ago. There are too manyRead More
My kids are mac n' cheese addicts.
Mac n’ cheese seems to be the “it” thing for kids. Most kids not only like it, but they go absolutely bonkers for it. My kids fall into that category. Before I learned how to make it from scratch, Kraft “Thick and Creamy” lived in our pantry. I could easily blame myself for their addiction,Read More
Restaurant dining with a toddler.

The movie "Chef" and grilled cheese sandwiches.
“Chef” is one of those movies I can watch over and over again. Jon Favreau is on my top 10 list of favorite actors, the movie is full of humor and good-hearted fun, and OH MY GOSH THE FOOD. The friggin’ food. Even though I literally want to eat EVERYTHING he makes in the movieRead More

Tiramisu Pancake Stack
It’s amazing how a simple combination of several different ingredients can make your mouth water just by thinking about them. My mother-in-law is a HUGE fan of tiramisu, and while I was making pancakes for the family one morning, her mere presence had me brainstorming about tiramisu recipes. The thoughts came swirling into my headRead More
Oreo Truffle Tarts
I don’t know about you, but I can’t get enough of Oreos. It might actually be in my best interest to buy stock in them, because I have probably contributed to a rise in demand for these irresistible cookies. Every time there’s a fresh package in the pantry, it’s been consumed in some type of concoction, and backRead More
