BFFF on Sacramento & Company

Last week I was on a local show called Sacramento & Company which is a News 10 Production. I talked about Best Friends For Frosting and demonstrated to viewers how to make one of my favorite desserts, Cheesecake Pops!  The segment lasted a little over 6 minutes and I was so nervous.  Truth be told, […]

How to make Homemade Rock Candy

My last interaction with rock candy was in my sixth grade science class.  I’ve seen Rock Candy in stores at the mall, but I’ve always brushed it off, choosing something more sophisticated and adult-like. This recipe for Homemade Rock Candy is screaming for me to revisit to my days as an eleven year old.  It’s […]

Rich Chocolate Frosting

When chocolate frosting is done right, it can nearly take the cake…a little baker’s humor!  But, really, chocolate frosting is super yummy, and a good recipe for it is something that all bakers need to have at the ready.  Think of how many cookies and cakes (chocolate drop cookies and yellow cake, to name a […]

How to Make Polka-Dotty Strawberry Milkshakes

I don’t think I love milkshakes quite as much as Sweet Paul, but maybe that’s because I’ve never thought to make a Polka-Dotty Strawberry Milkshake.  It’s funny how something so simple can be so amazing.  Sometimes it’s the smallest detail in food that makes it special and a treat to remember.  To make his milkshake […]

Best Oatmeal Raisin Cookie

The perfect cookie should be light and chewy, dissolving in your mouth in a delicious swirl of flavors before you can chew and swallow it properly. Unfortunately, it is easy for an Oatmeal Raisin Cookie recipe to go awry. Too much oatmeal can cause it to become thick and dry. Too few raisins and suddenly […]

Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie

When I saw this recipe for chocolate chip cookies labeled “perfect” and “ultimate” I was a little skeptical.  Those are bold words.  Could this really be the ideal cookie?  A flawless cookie unlike any other?  Well, maybe.  The recipe does call for sea salt, which I am currently obsessed with.  And Saveur claims that after […]

Grasshopper Brownie Bar

My love affair with mint and chocolate dates back to my early years. I remember being at a neighborhood Christmas party, and standing on my tiptoes to sneak a peek at the pies on the counter and eyeing a fluffy, light green pie in a chocolate cookie crust. I was immediately intrigued and described this […]

Pumpkin Pecan Snickerdoodle Cookie

The month of November is here, and I am all about pumpkin. Pumpkin pie, pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin muffins–you name it.  AmyBites’ Pumpkin Pecan Snickerdoodle Cookies are a nice addition to the list.  The cinnamon and nutmeg which are so common with snickerdoodles really helps to enhance the flavor of the pumpkin.   One pecan pressed […]

Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownie

This recipe had me at “red velvet and cheesecake” and then went all out by adding in “brownies.” I really think thereʼs a dessert within this dessert for everyone!  Hints of dark chocolate, swirled in gooey cream cheese with a little southern [flare] of red velvet…my mouth is watering all ready! As much as I […]

Homemade Snickers Bar

I enjoy Snickers and I enjoy a challenge, but I have to say that this recipe from Bon Appetite looks daunting. I hope youʼll prove me wrong, make the recipe, and leave a nice plate of them on my doorstep! All joking aside though, this recipe is not your everyday culinary endeavor, but after reading […]
