Sweet Sunday Six

There’s nothing like spending an October weekend in New England (Connecticut specifically) to remind you why the Northeast isn’t so bad after all. The foliage, the crisp weather, the apples and pumpkins – it’s beautiful! And today’s roundup reflects just that ....more

Clam Cookies + Octopus Marshmallow Pops

I’m taking a quick break from all of the oranges, browns, and beiges of late...more

Sweet Sunday Six

October is so fun in the blogosphere! Plenty of flavors to play with – apple, pumpkin, caramel, cinnamon – and so many Halloween themes and colors to incorporate as well. It’s such a great time for baking and creativity, I’ve been loving all of the seasonal posts recently, and can’t wait for Halloween! ...more

Samoas Pretzel Bites

If you ever walked into the back room of the clinic I work in, you would never guess in a million years that the room belongs to a group of dentists. Well, maybe the scattered scientific journals and dental magazines would give it away eventually, but more likely than not it is also covered with sweets. Cookies, candy, slices of cake, pastries – you name it, it’s back there ....more

Sweet Sunday Six

I started this Sweet Sunday Six feature right as summer was really warming up, and you’ll see from the changes in color of the desserts I’ve featured exactly how much the season has changed. While it was a rainbow/color explosion most of June and July, we’ve slowly made our way into all browns, oranges, and more brown. And all by chance! ...more

Magic Bar Cookies

When I hosted a cookie-exchange party around Christmas last year Ryan declared his favorite cookie of the whole bunch to be the magic bars. Not my...more

Sweet Sunday Six

Not a lot of time to chat today, too busy enjoying the City of Brotherly Love with some good friends – but still plenty of time to share these delicious treats! Even though it’s 80 degrees today, I’m still loving all things fall flavored apparently. No Philly cheesesteak for me, I’ll take one of any of these instead :)...more

Brown Sugar Cinnamon Apple Skillet Cake

It’s officially fall! And if every other blogger hasn’t already alerted you to the fact that the seasons have changed, then I’m here to carry on the ever-lasting weather conversation here in the blogosphere. Welcome to the land of baked apples, cinnamon, nutmeg, and maybe even a little pumpkin ....more

Sweet Sunday Six

From the looks of what I’ve favorited this week, you can tell I’m getting used to the idea of fall sneaking its way in officially as of tomorrow. But of course I’m still addicted to the crazy colors of summer, which of course comes from the Australian blogger of the bunch this week – I’m just jealous they’re just getting ready for summer to start! Oh well, at least now I can enjoy wearing layers and scarves and stuff myself silly with caramel apples to cope :)...more

Cookie Butter Cookie Dough Caramel Bars

I really don’t know what to call these. But crack cocaine didn’t seem appropriate, so I went for “cookie butter cookie dough caramel bars” instead. I made these weeks ago in the middle of summer when I knew there was no way I was turning on my oven but wanted to make something special for a friend’s birthday (hi, Tyla!) ....more
