This pumpkin hummus is hot and spicy–and makes a great app for the Fall season. Serve it in a hollowed out sugar pumpkin.
Corn dogs are one of those great polarizing foods: Peeps either love ’em or hate ’em. Me? Call me a savage, but I need once like once or twice a year, usually in the thick of summer, right around Labor Day. They remind me of steamy August afternoons spent at town carnivals. Corn dogs. Cotton […]
Calling kids of all ages (and all you H.P. Lovecraft fans) out there! OK, so these are really silly. And I should note that I didn’t invent these little suckers.

OK, so you guys know me: I’m all about butter, heavy cream, meat, and bacon. But ever since I wrote my ice cream cookbook, Slushed!, people have been asking me about making vegan ice cream. Which is technically a contradiction in terms. Considering ice cream is generally all milk, cream, and eggs, this was definitely […]
Forget candy, this is my kind of treat. A friend sent me the link from someone’s Facebook page, and I knew I had to try them right away. So simple. So delicious. Sweet. Salty. Fragrant with sage and sticky with maple syrup. These little babies hit all the right buttons with me. You can prep […]
