06 Oct Pomegranate Cupcake with Dark Chocolate Buttercream

Tart, light, and petite. These cupcakes are delicate in flavor but layered with it. Pomegranate and chocolate come together in this chiffon-cake-based cupcake for a light, moist texture.   October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month. This is a topic that hits very close to home for me. In 2010, a very good friend of mine was diagnosed with breast cancer. Since then, she has been through chemotherapy, a double mastectomy, and many reconstructive surgeries. She…

03 Oct Your Weekly Internet Spoils: Coffee Edition

Monday was apparently National Coffee Day (who decides these things, one has to wonder?) and as that sweet caffeinated elixir is what keeps me alive and free from committing murders, I thought I would share with you some of the best coffee-related things I have hoarded on my Pinterest boards, my darlings.   (If you do not drink coffee I am terribly sorry, please feel free to go and enjoy a nice hot cup of…

01 Oct Garden-Fresh Fetuccine Alfredo

  Rich, Creamy, and hearty. Using homemade pasta in a dish like this makes that much better. The thick, hand rolled fettuccine gives this classic a rustic taste and layers it with delicious homemade flavor.   Fettuccine alfredo has always been a favorite in my house. Anytime a recipe calls for exorbitant amounts of butter, cream, and cheese, count us in. And the fact that it’s based around pasta? It can’t get any better than that.  …

27 Sep Your Weekly Internet Spoils: Birthday Edition

Chocolate Stout Waffles. Photo by: Joanne of Eats Well with Others Aging is unavoidable- a lesson that certain evil wizards without noses learned the hard way- and yet we live in a society that tells us we should downplay our ages or even lie about them, especially if we are women. To this I say a full and hearty: bullshit. Each year is an accomplishment, my darlings; you have learned and grown and done things or not…

25 Sep Red Currant Whiskey Sour

Sweet, sour, and refreshing. This cocktail offers a red currant twist to the traditional Whiskey Sour. Around the area of Bonn, Germany, where I live, this is the season when we get swarmed by red currant berries. These pretty translucent red globes look like jewels, all piled up in the market stalls glistening the sun, and they are just too inviting to pass by without grabbing a basket. Once home, though, the head-scratching starts: what…

24 Sep Hand Rolled Homemade Pasta

Rich, Delicious & Homemade. Few dishes are as comforting and indulgent as pasta. Homemade pasta makes these dishes even better by adding a freshness, and rich flavor you just can’t get from store bought pasta.   I’ve always enjoyed making homemade pasta. While it can be a lot of work, and a bit of a strenuous process, it is a blast and fairly simple as well. You can add almost endless seasoning, herbs, and flavors to it…

22 Sep Chocolate Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies

  Chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate. Oh and some caramel too. There isn’t much that can make a chocolate chip cookie better, that perfect combination of sweetness and richness, the combination of crunch and chew, and the balance of chocolate and dough. Except maybe caramel – and more chocolate. These are your typical chocolate chip cookies with a little chocolate caramel twist.   A day doesn’t go by I find myself staring at my cookie jar,…

20 Sep Your Weekly Internet Spoils: Breakfast Cookie Edition

There are some things this world simply needs more of, my darlings: Empathy. Clean, accessible drinking water. Books, and films, and songs that change us. Excellent meals with those we love. Breakfast cookies.   The latter I can fortunately help with. Let’s get into it, shall we?   To consume and imbibe   I confess I got the idea for this subject matter from a HuffPo Food article, so if you would like to browse…
