Cranberry Coconut Granola Bars

If I had a nickel for every granola bar I’ve purchased in my life, I’d be quite angry. Largely because I simply don’t know what I would do with 7,893 nickels.

Peanut Butter Blondies with Chocolate Ganache

Have we talked about the days when I was a Girl Scout? No? Well it’s probably for the best. A daisy, then a  brownie, a junior, a cadette, and then eventually a senior. The whole experience only took approximately five billion years. The truth of the matter is that I was never very good. Probably…

Ice Cream Sandwiches

Yesterday I was sailing along. I’d finished a whole slew of to-do’s, baked so much that my oven begged for mercy, read the news (and not just People.com), and successfully choreographed a dance to Katy Perry’s  “California Gurls.” I even cleaned my computer screen. Things were going swell. To spend some time in the sunshine,…

Electrolux #splits: The Classic Banana Split

I suppose I owe Foodbuzz a letter of gratitude. No, not because they’re raising money for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund, though that’s really a plus. Because before now, I’d never spooned a banana split into my mouth. The scoop: To help spread the word and raise money for the OCRF, Foodbuzz is sponsoring a…
