Espresso Martini

Our favorite local sushi restaurant has a delicious Espresso Martini on their cocktail menu – and more often than not – when my husband Jack and I go out for date night together, one of us will order it. We’ve watched the bartender make it a few times – taking mental notes about how the cocktail […]

Mocha Cupcakes

This blog post is sponsored by Starbucks®. All opinions are 100% mine. #StarbucksPerfectPairing #Ad I don’t mean to brag – but I’m already done with my Christmas shopping! This is actually the first time EVER I’ve been done so early, and I’m ready to relax and enjoy the holiday season. I had a little bit […]

Oatmeal Stout Beef Pot Pie

For us, recipe inspiration comes from all sorts of places, and today’s Oatmeal Stout Beef Pot Pie was inspired by a recent trip to New York City! Last week we spent a long weekend with some friends and their daughters (all friends of our nine-year-old) exploring some of New York City’s most famous tourist destinations. […]

Sour Cream Streusel Coffeecake

As much as I love apple and pumpkin recipes at this time of the year – sometimes, a simple and classic Sour Cream Streusel Coffeecake is REALLY what I want baking in the oven on a cool Fall morning! Put on a pot of coffee to brew… because there really is nothing better than the […]


I’ve often teased my husband Jack that he must have been Asian in another life because of his incredible love for Asian food and the look of pure contentment he gets on his face when he eats it. (You can read more about that here.) So – if the same holds true for me, I […]

Pepperidge Farm® Milano® Tiramisu

Today, I’d like to start out with a special message for all of the ladies in our audience. So often – as a mother, as a daughter, as a friend, an employee, or a wife – we spend so much time taking care of other people that we sometime forget about focusing on ourselves! Am […]

Condensed Milk Pound Cake

We enjoyed some delicious #MillstoneCoffee along with this Condensed Milk Pound Cake as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars by Crowdtap. My husband Jack and I will both admit it – we are major coffee addicts! Neither of us can go without our morning cup of Joe! So this past weekend…our coffee maker broke! […]

Red-Eye Burger

Chances are…you’ve been there. You’re out late.  Partying…or celebrating…or working…or maybe traveling.  You look at the clock and it’s 2:00 AM – and you’re absolutely starving!  It’s too early for breakfast and dinnertime is long past – and besides, most restaurants are already closed for the night! This is the perfect time to make yourself […]

Coffee and Donuts Ice Cream

Coffee and donuts…ice cream!  Whaaat?!? You read that correctly – this is ice cream made with coffee and donuts.  And it’s really good… This is another recipe inspired by a night of watching television at home!  The Food Network featured a food truck in Los Angeles, California called The Lake Street Creamery and their most […]

Nanny’s Black Midnight Cake

In honor of Mother’s Day this coming weekend, we’re sharing this family recipe for Nanny’s Black Midnight Cake! My husband Jack and his brothers and sisters all have really fond memories of their mother (Nanny to us) baking this delicious cake – a dark, chocolate layer cake with a rich dark chocolate frosting.  It’s perfectly […]
