Pregnancy Update: 38 Weeks+

Counting down to baby! Less than two weeks until my due date!!   Not sure if I look any different from the 32 weeks picture (when I was coincidentally wearing the same outfit) even though I definitely FEEL heavier and bigger. So I’m officially at full term and less than two weeks are left until […]

Espresso Salted Dark Chocolate Biscotti

These rich dark chocolate biscotti are extra crunchy, perfect for coffee dunking! I’m not usually one to choose biscotti as a dessert of choice.  Often times, they are dry, super hard and not all that flavorful.  These biscotti here, they are a different story.  The rich dark chocolate and espresso salt ensure that every bite […]

This was really a good week in my world! First of all, I woke up to the nicest treat on Monday morning… some of my best blogger friends threw me a surprise virtual baby shower! Since I didn’t have an actual shower this was even more special. The posts were so nice and the recipes […]

Cinnamon Roll Blondie Bites

Mini cinnamon chip blondies are topped with the perfect cinnamon roll cream cheese frosting! So I realize I’ve been posting a ton of cinnamon-seasoned desserts lately, but can you blame me?  Cinnamon enhances all things pumpkin and apple, but it really shines on its own as well.  As a result, I gave these blondies the […]

Sweet and Salty Toll House Pie

This warm sweet and salty cookie pie is perfect with a scoop of vanilla ice cream! This is just one of those posts where I’m going to cringe looking at the pictures, but the recipe is too good not to share and frankly, sometimes the most UN-photogenic desserts are the tastiest. Way back on our […]

Black and White Cookie Cake

This giant black and white cookie is a huge version of the classic New York treat!   Before moving to New York City eight years ago, or I guess before I lived here the summer before that, I didn’t understand the fixation on the Black and White Cookie. Matt loves them and you can find […]

Cinnamon Chip Whole Wheat Pumpkin Scones

Lightly sweetened pumpkin scones filled with rich and flavorful cinnamon chips. I haven’t had many weird pregnancy cravings, but there were a few times that I could have killed for a scone from this bakery.  I don’t know what it is about them that is so good, but they are insanely addicting.  I think it has […]

Keep It Sweet Desserts Weekly Wrap-up 9/13/14

Sorry for the later posting this weekend!  Our cable and internet were out for a full 24 hours.  It actually scared me a little bit how lost I felt for that short period of time.  Luckily everything is back in working order and I can get back to watching shows, reading blogs and playing around […]

Giant Caramel Apple Cinnamon Bun with Cream Cheese Glaze

This giant cinnamon roll is oozing with a gooey caramel apple and topped with a perfect cream cheese glaze. I think Matt put it perfectly when he said, “You know how when you eat a cinnamon roll and the middle is the best part?  This is like getting almost only the middle!” Seriously, though.  I’ve […]
