Blueberry Mascarpone Turnovers

I was watching Giada on the Food Network the other day and she put together some interesting little turnovers filled with fresh blueberries and mascarpone cheese.  I used that as a starting point for these little sweets adding a bit of maple and cooking down the berries into a thick and concentrated sauce before mixing in with the cheese.

Cozy Bourbon Bread Pudding

For when you just need to be cozy all day.  It’s like French Toast that doesn’t get yucky after breakfast and is totally acceptable to eat all day long, hot or cold, with ice cream, whipped cream, a tall glass of milk or a little (or big) glass of bourbon.  And it’s surprisingly easy to make.

Peach Pie

Hope you all had a fantastic 4th of July weekend and ate lots and lots of food.  I told you before that my favorite thing to bake was pie, and one of my favorite pies to bake is peach.  Now that it’s summer and the peaches are plump, whip one of these babies up to share with all your favorite people.  It makes a great breakfast too!

Hey Guys!! I’m Alive! With Cookies!


I know you were worried, but I’m here… not kidnapped, or mangled somewhere on the side of the road, or eaten by a tiger, or GOD FORBID cut off from my beloved internetz… and not only am I informing you of my non-death today, I’m also going to show you how to bake something! Woooo!!!

These cookies taste like those little Ferrero Rocher chocolate balls you get in your stocking at xmas! The original recipe, from Martha, didn’t call for chocolate chips, but they definitely need them.  Eat these with your coffee in the morning, because who doesn’t like cookies for breakfast!?
