Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Pie Breakfast Rolls

Yup, I sure did. I managed to make dessert breakfast. And wow is it tasty. While autumn has not quite set-in down here sunny Florida (82 degrees is cool, right?), my tastebuds and clothing attire are begging to differ. I woke up with a craving for pumpkin pie. After going through my kitchen, I had…

No Bake Chocolate Almond Butter Oat Bars

When your friends invite you to their summer home on the Cape, you cannot show up empty-handed. Of course you should bring some summer rosé, but a homemade dessert really says ‘thank you’. These no-bake bars are the perfect summer dessert with their saltiness from the almond butter, the sweetness of the chocolate, and of…

Scott’s Triple Chocolate Cake

Scott doesn’t cook. At least the Scott I know. He eats hummus and tortilla chips for dinner when left to his own devices. But like all things in his life, when he is determined to do something, he does it to perfection. And it turns out that while he hasn’t been known to do much…

Another DIVA had recommended this fabulous Italian restaurant, Osteria Via Stato, not far off of Michigan Avenue. After we had stuffed ourselves (I had the most incredible lasagna), the waitress…

Individual Oreo Cheesecakes

This dessert is a slight modification of a Martha Stewart dessert. I came across it on Food Gawker, and had to make it at my next dinner party. Even though I’m not a huge cheesecake person, these were delicious and everyone loved the intrigue of having their own miniature cheesecake. Next time I make these,…

Easiest Homemade Turtles

One of the DIVAs made this for the first time for an after party of her sister’s rehearsal dinner. She had them placed beautifully on a tiered Michael Aram tray, and everyone was super impressed! How in the world had she had time to make such an elegant candy amongst all the wedding planning?! And…
