Key Lime Pie

Recipes

open post

The origins of Key Lime pie are a little murky.  Some accounts say that a woman named ‘Aunt Sally’ invented this lovely combination of cinnamon graham crackers, tart Key Limes, and fluffy meringue. But many historians say that the Bahamian sponge and conch divers were the first to whip it all the local limes with […]

Homemade Peach Milkshakes

Recipes

open post

I don’t care what the calendar says, summer has officially arrived in Raleigh, NC.  I’m ready for day trips to the beach, lounging out my the pool, and paddle boating in Pullen Park. [Sidenote: notice the common theme here? I was probably a mermaid in another life.]  I don’t know about you, but when the […]

Cardamom Cake with Coffee Glaze

Recipes

open post

Love. Friends. Flowers. Cocktails.  These are a few of my favorite things and thankfully, I was able to indulge in all of them this weekend at the wedding of my friends, Mike and Kelli Holloway.  They had a beautiful garden wedding at the Barclay Villa in Angier, NC that was orchestrated by K Dream Effects.  […]

Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Recipes

open post

I’m happy to inform you all that as I enter this 25th year of life my taste buds are definitely maturing. Jeff likes to tease me by saying that I’m not a real adult, since my frontal lobe hasn’t fully developed yet. I’m not sure how true that is, but he also insists that it […]

Hey y’all! It’s #WeddingWednesday again and I’m here to possibly answer some questions that you may have about your wedding cake, particularly whether you should choose a fondant covered cake or a buttercream cake.  Each one has some awesome advantages that I’ll dive into.   Fondant – typically made with confectioner’s sugar, marshmallows, corn syrup, and […]

Dulce de Leche

Recipes

open post

Ever since I visited Baked and Wired in D.C., I’ve been infatuated with dulce de leche. There’s this super delicious cupcake called The Tessita – it’s a vanilla cake, with dulce de leche filling and a chocolate-hazelnut frosting. It’s amazing.  For months I’ve been meaning to get my hands on some dulce de leche and […]

Sour Cream Lemon Pound Cake

Recipes

open post

Pound cake is comfort food for me.  It was the first dessert that I ever made, and it holds a really special place in my heart.  I spent countless Sundays covered in flour making pound cakes for my immediate and extended family.  Sometimes it was plain sour cream pound cake, other times it was vanilla pound […]

Blood Orange Curd

Recipes

open post

Blood orange season is here, y’all!  I was so excited when I walked into my local grocery store and saw these lovelies beaming up at me.  I grabbed about four of those produce bags and filled each one of them all the way up.  I’m sure the other shoppers thought I was crazy, but I […]

Chocolate Chunk Skillet Cookie

Recipes

open post

I don’t know about you, but chocolate chip cookies have the supernatural ability to take me to my happy place, or should I say places.  Like spending time in the kitchen with my mom and Grand.  Or dishing about guys with my college friends with a glass of wine in hand.  Or cuddling up on […]

Nutella & Banana Brioche Pudding

Recipes

open post

Dear Nutella, I’m sorry.  I’m sorry that I brushed you off as just another fad.  That I treated you like an overrated version of peanut butter, which I detest very much.  That I walked past you in the grocery store and didn’t give you a second look.  Will you please forgive me?  Because I’m unequivocally […]
