Last winter, people got really excited about red wine hot chocolate. I thought it sounded kind of dumb, so I let it be. Well, here I am, months later, faced with a chocolate craving and a remaining third of a bottle of merlot. So I said, screw it, let’s try it. I’m going to come

This recipe is brought to you by Mother Necessity. Back in May, I was scrambling to put together a birthday dinner for my hubby after a busy day, and I realized partway through that I hadn’t made him a cake or a pastry or anything. Crap. So, I scrambled to toss something together, and after

This past weekend, this Miss became a Missus! To celebrate, I’m bringing you some delicious, way too easy to make, rich chocolate cake — in a mug! Don’t let the idea of eggy, dry mug cakes deter you. This mug cake is rich, moist, and doesn’t use egg! It’s an awesome dessert to make when

Last summer, I made my first batch of homemade ice cream. After the Neapolitan was a success, I tried my hand at huckleberry ice cream, which was also good, though I ran into the issue of huckleberries being a little too expensive to use for the whole recipe (note: if you want to imitate the flavor of

That’s right, you heard me. They’re peanut butter cookies, and they’re stuffed — WITH CHOCOLATE! This cookie escapade started when I went over to my (soon to be) in-laws to discuss wedding plans and came home with a giant bag of chocolates. She wanted the candies to go away because she had bought too many,

Here’s yet another treasure from one of my old cookbooks. This one is brought to you by the 1913 publication, Household Discoveries and Mrs. Curtis’s Cook Book. 1, 2, 3, 4 cookies get their name from their ingredient list, which is based around 1 cup of butter, 2 cups of sugar, 3 cups of flour,

One of my friends came over to help me bake, and he brought up the idea of using aquafaba in something “for science.” It was an experiment and it went… pretty well. Our meringue ended up a little overworked and not super presentable, but everything else about the pie looked fantastic. This recipe is one

This recipe was quite an adventure. The recipe for molasses pie that I found was tucked away in a 106 year-old book that I picked up at an antique store. The recipe consisted of the ingredients for filling and topping two pies, and the instructions for baking amounted to “bake in one crust, remove from

There’s a local antique shop in town that has a variety of items, from world war relics and period clothing to old dolls and kitchenwares. They also occasionally have some incredible finds, such as newspapers from the day of the first moonwalk or the day Pearl Harbor was bombed, or 105 year-old home medical and

For Valentine’s Day, I was going to make a post about diabetic-friendly brownies, but the first batch tasted like crap, so I decided to take a bit more time to perfect the recipe (or at least make them taste less like sweetened dirt and more like actual chocolate baked goods). Fortunately for everyone involved, these
