I never appreciated pie until a few years ago. Before then, I had a few mandatory bites of pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving, would grin and bear my way through a cold apple pie if it was the dessert of choice at a friend’s house, but never, ever, requested on my own the presence of pie … More Peace Pie
Hammonton once was a town I’d sigh and swoon for as we drove through on our way to Cape May. Thanks to Coffeehouse Adventures, we began to grow more familiar with Hammonton and instead of flying through, we’d stop, walk around a little, grab coffee, a bite to eat, and continue on our way. One … More The Funky Cow, Hammonton, NJ
I’ve been hearing about The Pop Shop for way too long to have only recently visited. I feel like I’m behind the times; like the cool train has left and I’m racing on the track, trying to catch up and hop on.* *Knowing me, I’d slam into the back when it pulled up to the … More The Pop Shop, Medford
It’s been far too long since my last bakery post. I’m not sure I can remember that far back. Clearly, something must be done. This post almost wouldn’t have been if it weren’t for a rather large sign on the highway noting Cake Stand’s existence. Our discovery went something like this: Me: Oh, Lance! Look, … More Cake Stand Bakery, Voorhees
One random Friday night somewhere during the time I began really baking, I decided to try my hand at a crêpe cake. It seemed like an awe-inspiring dessert to bring to a family dinner that night. Up until then, the extent of my from-scratch baking was cakes and cookies, hardly reaching a complex mastery level … More Crêpe Cake
When I was in elementary school and we had to do the mile run, I’m pretty sure I was one of the kids whose name the gym teacher marked a special symbol next to on her clipboard to signify falling into the “over fifteen minutes” time frame. And now I’m all like, doing marathons and … More A Wednesday Confession
It’s been some time since I’ve done a homemade food post…and that makes me sad. Alright, this isn’t totally true. I literally just posted about my experience making pasta for the first time. But this is different. Today I’m going to tell you how ridiculously simple cream puffs are to make. Not bad for a … More Homemade Cream Puffs
Thanksgiving breakfast is the most exciting, exhausting, laughter inducing, sweat producing, joyful, cozy, carb-a-licious event of my entire year. Translation: It’s my favorite. On Thanksgiving Eve, my kitchen transforms into a bakery and anyone in my path is given a task…alright, several tasks…to complete. Dish drying and chocolate drizzling… …egg separating and recipe reading For … More Dessert for Breakfast?
You know I like food with a twist. So, donuts made with potatoes as one of their ingredients? Yeah…it was a must try. Funnily enough, a few weeks before going on this little road trip, I made cinnamon rolls with potato. In the recipe, mashed potato was their ‘secret to light-as-air rolls’. Apparently, it adds … More Holy Donut, Batman!
Food trucks are one of my favorite things. They have taken this common concept of selling food on street corners and have sophisticated and specified their offerings to a point that the quality of the goods is often equal to or better than that of many restaurants. No matter how we plan for finding food … More Cookie Monstah, Boston
