Cinnamon Bundt Cakes & Roll Goals

One of my favorite stories is when I worked at Quiznos, age 17, and my boss who was from Bangladesh was asking me to grab some stuff from the back so we could refill the cooler case. “Could you grab me the bund-it cakes?” “The what?” “Bund-it. The bund-it cakes.” “Ray. It’s bundt. One word.”…

Peanut Butter Balls

Tis the season for easy baking…. Fa la la la la… don’t bake at all. It’s true! You don’t need to bake these! You can even watch me make them, it was really easy, and you could start an assembly line of family to help you make them. Just make sure them hands is clean….

Stars and Spice and Everything Nice

These are the ingredients to make the perfect little cookies… Not sorry about that reference. Or these babies. When you look at a typical sugar cookie coming into the holiday season, you imagine a crisp, yet soft, icing covered cookie.

Gluten Free Chocolate Bombs

A few weeks ago I began panicking about my everyday life. I wasn’t sure, but I began testing whether or not I was allergic to gluten. While I’m still not 100% positive, I don’t think I am (phew, sorry glutenites). Either way – this gave me the opportunity to look through old recipes and readjust them…

How a piece of chocolate changed my outlook

I just got my mindfulness box in the mail (unboxing video coming soon), and this one came with a handful of meditation suggestions. Being that I’m a sweet freak, the one that caught my eye was “Chocolate Meditation.” Um, sign me up! The better news was I could do it right. then. because my box…
