It's here! 2018 is literally just around the corner and it's time to begin dreaming big and setting goals. I've never been one to physically write out New Year's resolutions, as I haven't had the desire or intent to make significant changes to any specific part of my life. Re-reading that last sentence (which I've done plenty) makes it sound as if my life up until this point has lacked focus. But it's more that...
Allow me to introduce you to my absolute favorite cookie: Italian rainbow cookies! Food Advertising by I think I like them so much because they're actually cake. Cake disguised as cookies. The batter is made with a combination of almond paste and almond extract. Swoon. Long live almond-flavored desserts! Divide the batter equally in thirds, add food coloring to create red and green layers, then bake them off one-by-one. This is honestly the most difficult part...
Raise your hand and be honest. How often do you measure vanilla while adding it to recipes? Yeah, same. Literally never. A big splash here, a smaller splash there, and before you know it -- poof!

The anticipation and expectation of presents, the endless trays of food, the not playing with new presents mere days after receiving them. My head is spinning. I think this is why Jews look forward to Christmas...
There are some recipes that are kept sealed in the family vault and your only way to access them is to marry into the family. Luckily for me, I found a man who's family is just as wonderful, loving, and accepting of me as he is, and as an added bonus, they enjoy really good food. Case in point: these highly acclaimed homemade latkes. Food Advertising by One of my first introductions to my now...
It's been over a week since Thanksgiving. We survived Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday. Some of us controlled ourselves, and others were caught red-handed, accused of spending too much money. But it was a gift! And it's for you! Well, for us. Okay, it's for me... You might think that now is the time to sit back, relax, and enjoy holiday music, but beware, the holiday season waits for no one and...
