Pumpkin Ice Cream

Pumpkin Ice Cream

Happy December everyone! Thanksgiving is over, which is a total bummer because I love everything about Thanksgiving. The food, the people, the zero need to stress and get together with family. Every year we hold a friendsgiving for the other “orphans” without a family in the city and every year it’s just a great time with too much food and good people. It seems so counterintuitive that I love Thanksgiving so much, but feeding others brings me joy and Thanksgiving is great for that! This pumpkin ice cream for example,…

Watermelon Cupcakes

Watermelon Cupcakes

Hi everyone! Sorry for later than usual post today. But I’m keeping with the season and getting back to cupcakes! Today I bring you watermelon cupcakes. Not those vanilla cupcakes dyed to look like watermelons, but genuine watermelon flavored cupcakes made with real watermelon. They are also made with fake watermelon flavor (thanks jello! [this post is not sponsored honest]), just to help bring some more watermelon flavor into them. They’re really really delicious.

Fireball Vanilla Peach Cake

Fireball Vanilla Peach Cake

Hi there everyone! And hi to all the new people! I’m very excited to have you here! I post every Wednesday, so if you’d like an email reminder you can sign up for email notifications. Since most of you were brought here by Fireball, I thought it was only appropriate to make another Fireball recipe for y’all. And since it’s still summer, I wanted to make a summery fireball recipe with some fruit you can pick up at the farmers’ market. So today I bring you a Fireball Vanilla Peach…

Baileys Twinkies

Baileys Twinkies

So the other day, someone brought Twinkies into the office and someone suggested that I make Baileys Twinkies. So here we are. I will say, it took a long time to develop this recipe and I’ve basically been covered in chocolate for two weeks straight, so despite the fact that these really are delicious, this post may not be super enthusiastic about how delicious these are. I swear they are delicious, and despite having a lot of steps, they come together fairly quickly. Don’t be intimidated by them. If you’re…

White Russian Parfait Shots

White Russian Parfait Shots

A White Russian is my mother’s drink of choice and since Sunday was mother’s day, I wanted to make something inspired by her. So I made white russian parfait shots! Don’t be fooled by the picture – you absolutely do not want to eat a whole mason jar’s worth, because they’re super rich. These are perfect to serve up in shot glassesĀ at a party/bachelorette part/wedding/a college party/you know, basically whenever. They really do pack a punch. These have three layers, a Coffee Liqueur cheesecake mousse, a white russian pudding, topped…

Banana-Cinnamon Cupcakes with Fireball Whisky

Banana-Cinnamon Cupcakes with Fireball Whisky

  What do you do when you have a bunch of ripe bananas and a bottle of fireball whisky hanging around? Make some cinnamon banana cupcakes of course! And dump a bunch of fireball in there because why not!   One of the things I always worry about when making banana cupcakes is that they’re going to turn into banana muffins. And these certainly do not. It’s a spongy banana cake. Perfectly light and not overly sugary, but exceptionally banana-y. Moreso, next day. Baked goods with pureed fruits/veggies always have…

White Chocolate Candy Cane Cupcakes

White Chocolate Candy Cane Cupcakes

Happy belated holidays everyone! This is a late post because I was home to Michigan for the week and came back with that horrible flu that’s going around. So that knocked me out all last week. So let’s recap. Michigan was beautiful. We got a terrible ice store that knocked out power for half the state, but it was gorgeous in its destruction   This is a real ice store. The one we had here in Memphis a few weeks back was a joke comparatively. Also, despite all the cold…
