Remember I talked about how my wife and I were late to the reception, well they opened up the cheeseboards and charcuterie table for guests to start off. They couldn’t be stopped. People were starving and they couldn’t be stopped. Unfortunately, this meant that our beautiful towers of Italian Macarons were noshed off, too. Even the tower with the Bride Cake on top. I know, I know. I was pretty annoyed but our huge delay made people desperate. Tuscan Winter Wedding meant lots of really good food and tons of starving family members ready to chomp down anything they could get their paws on.Read More
Lo and behold, we’re letting the good times roll with these heavenly King Cake Pudding Shots. You can make them virgin by excluding the deliciously perfect Pinnacle vodka with the flavor inspired by King Cake, the infamous celebratory Mardi Gras cake.Read More
When I was a little girl, I spent a lot of time in the kitchen with my mom on her spare time. One of my favorite things to make that we only made on special occasion was these delicious “Cranberry Orange Cookies”. I always thought of them as I got older. Their soft texture and sweet but tangy chew. This was something I would never forget.
After getting healthy, I tried to recreate this cookie but have still, to this day, been unsuccessful. Today, I had a different idea. I wanted to make bites that had the taste of those “Cranberry Orange Cookies” but in a more moist way. How could I accomplish this? I would put myself to the test but would I pass? Or, would I fail?
Once I stepped foot in the kitchen, I knew what I would do…make bite size cranberry orange cookie-dough-tasting goodness! I did in fact succeed and, now, I won’t ever have to “look back” on the memories of those days in the kitchen with mom but be able to bite into the memory with healthy and wholesome ingredients that feed my mind, body, and soul with the nutrition it craves.
P.S. these are the perfect on-the-go protein snack for before or after a workout, maybe even in between meals. Just make them already.Read More
