I had ricotta leftover from another recipe I made recently, and I had a craving for rice pudding. The result: This recipe. Rice pudding is great because it’s one of those desserts that you can convince yourself is healthy when really, it’s not. It sits in a limbo somewhere between sweet oatmeal and Frosted Flakes.

After making tens of loaves of standard sourdough, no matter how good it may be, you start to crave a little bit of variety. That’s where this beauty of a loaf comes in. I’ve been trying to get it just right for a couple of months now. More of this, less of that, etc. Finally,

These cookies are about as classic as you can get outside of chocolate chip and sugar cookies. Hershey’s kisses sitting atop a soft bed of pillowy peanut butter send so many childhood memories flooding back. They’re delicious both before and after the chocolate has set, and it’s so easy to eat a whole dozen all

I’m not normally a fan of sugar cookies, but I made these by request for a family member, and I found that they really grew on me. The flavor is subtle, and the texture is incredibly delicate. Despite the delicious, crumbly, melt-in-your-mouth feel of these cookies, they’re plenty durable and will hold up to clumsy

I’ve been on a mission to find a good balance between my carb-heavy diet and Hubby’s protein-heavy needs. The middle ground appears to be fish and poultry, which I can eat lots of without the negative… effects… that I get when I eat large portions of red meat. Fortunately, seafood is something I grew up

This is one of the more complicated recipes I’ve ventured to do. Anyone who’s been following Apartment Eats for a while knows I’m generally a cupcake person. I’ve tried making pies before with varied success, and I’ve never, ever made a full cake. Hubby actually gave me a straight answer for once when I asked

Shepherd’s pie is another meal that tends to resurface around St. Patrick’s Day, but the peasant dish isn’t truly Irish. Many countries have their own versions of this meal, which was traditionally made out of the scraps of a Sunday feast. A “true” shepherd’s pie uses a mix of lamb and vegetables as a base with
