Cherry Chocolate Chunk Muffins

There are 10lbs of fresh, pitted cherries in my freezer right now – they probably won’t still be there when that cherry margarita craving hits in November, but I do plan to stretch cherry season out as long as I can this year! We’ve managed to work cherries into dinner, dessert, and most importantly: margaritas. [...]

Rolo Ice Cream

Did you know that July is National Ice Cream Month? You do now! On a stick, in a cone. In a cup, a bowl, or floating in a frosty mug of Dr. Pepper… doesn’t matter how you eat it, it has the ability to turn back the “feels like” number on the calendar and the [...]

Roast Cherry Brownie Sundaes

Has any single pound of cherries ever been so decadent? I’m not so sure. And I’m not so sure it should ever be again. The hardest part of buying cherries is not polishing off the entire bag before you even get to your bookmarked recipes. It’s a difficult race to pit the cherries fast enough [...]

Tin Roof Ice Cream

What is your favorite ice cream? Tin Roof ranks up there as one of my very, very favorite flavors. My favorite store brand (Blue Bell) has it in seasonal rotation, meaning I can’t just wake up on any Saturday morning and run to the store to grab some for breakfast. (That has never happened. I [...]

Tin Roof Cupcakes

I started out the new year on a high note, running over 20 miles during that first week and almost 100 miles in the first two months. I also made a lot cupcakes and margaritas. I might not have done them in that order, but I feel like one made the others a little better [...]

Quirk Books contacted me a while back about participating in Marsh Madness to celebrate Shauna Sever’s new cookbook release, Marshmallow Madness. And I jumped all over it. Because it combines two things that are quite dear to me: Tourney-style brackets in March. And dessert. Everyone wins! Totally unlike the office pot where the intern who [...]
