Chef Worthy Kitchen on a Budget

If you know me at all, you know I love a good looking, hard working kitchen. In my house in Virginia, I am lucky enough to say that I have the best of the best – a commercial style range (48 inches!), huge fan, armoire refrigerator, refrigerator drawers in my cabinets, a super quiet dishwasher, […]

Raspberry Ice Cupcakes…and a KitchenAid Giveaway

Raspberry Ice Cupcakes.  Pink Cupcakes. Cupcakes for a Cure. Sure, you may think pink cupcakes in October may seem odd, considering everything else in your feed is pumpkin and pear, but pink is perfect for today, and for the rest of October.  Why? It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and I am helping KitchenAid raise money […]

Cook for the Cure…Raspberry Orange Doughnuts

For the past few years, I have been honored by KitchenAid to be asked to share a pink recipe with you.  Why pink? Well, KitchenAid is a huge supporter of the Susan G. Komen Foundation, an organization that tackles a disease that has touched so many people in all of our lives: breast cancer.  Together, […]

Salted Caramel Banana Pudding Cheesecake Flambé

Ready to ring in the New Year? Why not ring it in with delicious style? Salted Caramel Banana Pudding Cheesecake Flambé is exactly the kind of recipe that would make that a reality.

Strawberry Peach Gelato

For the past few years, I’ve been making pink foods along with KitchenAid, in an effort to increase breast cancer awareness and the Susan G. Komen Foundation.  KitchenAid is a huge supporter of the foundation, and it’s something that touches so many of us. So of course, when the note came in again this year […]

Croissant Doughnuts… I’m Taking on the “Pull Off the Ultimate Pastry” Challenge from KitchenAid

For a year or more, I have been wanting to try my hand at making the trendiest trend in all of Food Land… the Cronut. But, time tends to slip away from me, and to be honest, a recipe as challenging as that just never seemed RIGHT. I needed a reason to contain myself in […]

Ribbon Pasta…and Together Time in the Kitchen

As a food blogger, I find myself in the kitchen a lot of the time. It’s my space, where I go to work, to cook, to bake, to photograph. I spend time online there, searching Pinterest and other blogs for inspiration. I watch television in there; I listen to my music. I sometimes dance, sometimes […]

12 Days of Giveaways…KitchenAid Waffle Baker

Happy Sunday! Today I am thrilled to offer you one of my most favorite things…the KitchenAid Waffle Baker. Seriously – LOVE it. Waffles are a treat, in my opinion, reserved for breakfasts out or on fancy brunch buffets – not something you serve up at home on a regular basis.  Why?  Well, restaurants tend to […]
