Red Velvet Cake Bark

I really feel like I should be posting something Super Bowl related today…

Lots of sprinkles and real red velvet cake in chocolate...what more can you really ask for?! | #recipeI mean my team is going to the freakin’ Super Bowl TWO YEARS IN A ROW!! That like never happens!

Seriously though, you would not believe how much pride this city has right now. All the skyscrapers downtown have blue and green lights atop them, 12 flags are hanging everywhere, everyone is decked out in Seahawks gear, and there is just a general unity going on right now that is indescribable. It’s a beautiful thing. We’re all incredibly proud to be Seattle Seahawks fans!

Last year, I made these awesome Blue Velvet Cookies, which is kinda funny considering I’m posting (another) red velvet recipe. Do not even consider mistaking all this red velvet for any sort of Patriots fan fare. It’s only because I love cute Valentine’s Day treats, and have developed a weird obsession with all things red velvety.

Seattle, I apologize for not making something blue and green and full of Skittles!

Red Velvet Cake Ice Cream

This ice cream is chock-full of red velvet cake crumbles churned into a creamy cheesecake-y base that mimics cream cheese frosting. It's divine. | #recipe

I told you things were going to get red and pink and sprinkle-y around here! I also seem to have developed a sliiiiiight addiction to all things red velvet in the past month. It started with these cupcakes. Now, I’ve moved on to ice cream, but don’t think for a second that it ends here. Oh

Homemade Chicken Stock

Making your own stock is really simple, and SO much better than the store-bought stuff! | #recipe

It’s another kitchen staple recipe, today! I’m about to completely bombard you with red, pink, and sprinkle-y recipes for Valentine’s Day ). I mean, it’s the cutest holiday, ever, to bake delicious delights for…but we’re not talking about that today! Today, I thought we’d talk about an important component to any kitchen—chicken stock. Actually, at

Thomas Keller’s Simple Roast Chicken

The easiest, most succulent roast chicken you will ever make. The only necessary ingredient are chicken, salt, and pepper! | #recipe

Let’s end the week with a ridiculously simple recipe, shall we? Guess what? This recipe has 4 ingredients. That includes salt and pepper. When I said ridiculously simple, I meant it. You literally rub a chicken with salt and pepper and put it in the oven for an hour—no oil, no fancy stuffings, that’s it!

Fried Duck Egg Sandwich with Prosciutto and Lemony Arugula

This a perfect simple, breakfast-y sandwich that you can eat anytime of day, and prepare in less than 10 minutes! | #recipe

Breakfast food is the best food. I’m sure that’s something that I’ve said before, but it’s true. Anything that involves eggs is right up my alley! I eat eggs probably 3 or 4 days a week for either breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It’s kinda an addiction. Except I don’t want to use the word addiction,

Green Beans with Mustard and Crème Fraîche

Crisp green beans are coated with a creamy, herby, whole grain mustard sauce, and topped with crunchy toasted almonds, and ready in 5 minutes! | #recipe

I thought we’d go just a tad healthier today. You know, since I gave you some amazing cupcakes yesterday…it’s all about balance. (Um, but I’m still eating those cupcakes like there’s no tomorrow. I managed to get most of them out of the house by having Mikey take them to work, but I couldn’t bear

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Chocolate-y, vanilla-y, crazy moist cake topped with a tangy-sweet cream cheese buttercream! | #recipe

Please excuse me if I can’t form cohesive thoughts in my post, today! I’m still trying to recover from Sunday’s game. I actually had intended this post to go up yesterday, but after I got home from the Seahawk’s game on Sunday, I was so emotionally exhausted that I took a three hour nap! I truly

Cherry-Nutella Banana Bread Bars

These chocolate-y little numbers are banana bread in bar form, studded with dried cherries and chocolate chips. They're super easy to make, and simple to make vegan! | #recipe

Hi, I’ve been stuffing my face with these since last night. It’s cool though, because we’re calling these chocolatey bars “healthy.” In truth, they’re only healthy in the sense that they are much healthier than similar alternatives, like a brownie. They totally aren’t brownies, though. It’s rich chocolatey banana bread, studded with dried cherries and chocolate chips, in bar
