Peanut Butter Cookies

A recipe so nice, I’ve made it twice (this week). (Don’t worry, mostly to distribute to friends and colleagues). The basis of this is Ina’s recipe, but it has been modified a bit for ultimate enjoyment and accolades from your friends and family. The need to try this came from the realization that I had…

Super Model Project: Three Ingredient Chocolate Mousse

Tick all that apply: You are craving chocolate. You are a novice chef/baker. You need a nice end to a possibly over indulgent/romantic dinner. You need to look like Chrissy Teigan GREAT NEWS. This Teigan recipe from Cravings 2 hits all of these pressing issues. A super simple dessert made with stuff you probably already…

Tea at Fortnum & Mason

For mother’s day, I treated mum (and dad) to high tea at a spot of their choice. A friend recommended Fortnum & Mason’s Diamond Jubilee salon so I nudged mum in that direction and she agreed. Like a kid in a candy store, or a lady in a pastry shop, she was giddy as all…

Other Grand Snacks in Grand Cayman

It wasn’t all tasting menus and drinks on the beach. I managed to eat a bevy of other thangs as well, because, well…what else was I to do? Because I’m just a dainty lady, these 15 things were my top favorites: Burrata at Ave. Holy crap, this was hands down the best burrata of my…

Carmella’s & The Spectator Bar

After our less than amusing dinner at McCrady’s Tavern, we opted for dessert elsewhere and found Carmella’s dessert bar. Dessert and Bar are two words that should always be friends and more often than not, seem to be in the south. We split three desserts among three ladies. There was a cannoli, not pictured, that…

Restaurant Review:  Bird and Bone

As far as hotel restaurants go, the Bird and Bone at The Confidante is definitely up there. It’s super low-key, has excellent service (and should for an automatic 20% across Miami), and the food. Oh. the. food. And the name, cheeky AF, so you know I love it. Over a three-day weekend, I managed three…

Pralines and Cream

While coming off of the perfect long weekend was tough, I had these some New Orleans pralines to get me through. I’m not sure why I thought I loved pralines as they are ludicrously sweet, but to appease my 17 year old self, I bought a few at the airport. With a fistful of candies…

This Recipe is Definitely an Avoca-do

Notice anything different about this post? Well if you look to the left, you’ll notice a bite of ooey-gooey, dense, moist, dark chocolate perfection. And if you look toward the heavens, you’ll learn that this is actually an avocado. That’s right, people. AVOCADO BROWNIES. Did I mention that they’re gluten-free, too? Avocado Brownies Brownies 4…

Peanutbutter Granola Energy Bars

I’ve been on a quest for decent tasting recipes that still fulfill my constant need to bake. I thought I’d found one – Peanutbutter Granola Energy Bars – by David Lebovitz. That was, until I made them and saw just how much brown sugar went into them. Whoops. Should have read the recipe through first…

Dessert Verdict: Not Guilty!

Deep into my health kick, I’ve found the most wonderfully simple dessert recipe… and just in time for Valentine’s Day! Finally, a dessert with the caloric verdict:  Not Guilty! This seriously takes five minutes to make and seems and tastes super impressive. Berry Frozen Yogurt 4 c. frozen berries (I have tried all strawberries, but…
