Hummingbird Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting by My Utensil Crock

I may not be Southern, but I know a delectable Southern dessert when I taste one. And that's what we have here. I was introduced to this deliciousness shortly after college, during a visit to E(H)A in Atlanta. At that time, I liked baking but had not at all yet hit my stride. E had kitchen skills that I attributed to her Southern DNA. It … [Read more...]

French Toast S'More-lettes aka Croque Mons'morelettes by My Utensil Crock

When we last left our heroines, they were chowing down on Italian Quinoa Breakfast Casserole and a huge tray of Indoor S'Mores in a cabin in the woods in honor of LS's bachelorette weekend. Man, life is good sometimes. Our leading ladies, however, had a bit too much to eat and drink over the weekend and couldn't finish the billion Indoor … [Read more...]

Indoor S’Mores for a Group

Indoor S'Mores for a Group by My Utensil Crock

As summer comes to a close this evening, I would like to pay homage to a favorite taste of summer*: The S'More. * Also fall, and winter. And I have never turned down a Spring S'More. My cousin SFH put the idea for Indoor S'Mores for a Group in my head before her annual July 4 party this year, and it has been looming large since then. She … [Read more...]

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Greek Yogurt

To my new friend MM who told me tonight: "I love peanut butter, and I love yogurt, and I would love to put them together, but I don't know how" (or something very similar), may I recommend... Stirring. I jest. It's more than that, of course, but just the littlest bit. She (and you) will love this easy recipe idea. I first met this … [Read more...]

Dark Chocolate Flourless Cookies

Dark Chocolate Flourless Cookies - 5 ingredients and done in 20 minutes.

In my mind, I had been posting too many desserts. But as it turns out, I only posted one since September. Upon further analysis, I had been eating too many desserts, not posting them. My bad. Dark Chocolate Flourless Cookies are the easiest. The easiest! Egg whites, cocoa, powdered sugar - and vanilla and salt. THAT'S IT. And chocolate chips, … [Read more...]

Mini Salvadoran Breakfast Cakes

Salvadoran Breakfast Cakes-4

This week, we had a celebration at work in honor of a significant milestone for my supervisor: 25 years of federal service. 25 years! Oh no. I just realized I'm only a few months shy of half-way to 25 years. WHAT. JUST. HAPPENED. Ack. Composure regained. Any-way, I organized a brunch at work on Monday for this event. And want to know what's … [Read more...]

Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Bars-11

Let's wrap up this year on a sweet note! If you have never made cookies with brown butter, may I suggest that you New Years Resolve to do so. "Browning" your butter - a fancy word for melting it until it starts to cook - is an easy way to add a unique, rich flavor to not only baked goods, but savory sauces and more. I will do a … [Read more...]

Angel Food Cake

Angel Food Cake-3

I have a good friend from law school who always thinks I am pulling her leg. Don't get me wrong - I am often pulling her leg - but if one thing is true in this world, I would never steer SLRH wrong. She knows that, of course, but it doesn't stop her from rolling through the entire extended potential aftermath of whatever I have just thrown at her, … [Read more...]

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Coconut Oil Cookies-8

I find that when I wait too long to post a recipe after making it, there are holes in my cooking memory. Was it in the oven for 13 or 16 minutes? How many servings did it make (= how many did I eat during the photo shoot)? Did I end up halving the nutmeg? Etc. Let's just say I didn't mind having to make this recipe a few times to fill in the … [Read more...]
