Princess parties are some of the most popular on our site!
Here's an easy, budget-friendly popcorn treat to serve at your next princess party. You can personalize it with any color you choose, but of course we're showing it here in classic pink!
When I think of July 4th, I think about being a kid and heading to the Jersey Shore with my family. I grew up in NJ but we didn't go "down the shore" often, maybe once a summer. It was special.
I loved the Jersey Shore, it felt so alive. It wasn't snooty, like other east coast beaches. It was tacky, with lots of people with bad hair and bad accents, and yes, I was one of them. (But I only discovered that years later when I moved away.)
My husband and I were recently sharing favorite food memories, and he told a story of how when he was little, and had dinner at his grandmother's house, he'd get to go into her refrigerator, pull out the chocolate syrup, and pour it all over his vanilla ice cream all by himself. He was so proud of himself and the ice cream tasted so good.
He said a lot of times it got super messy, but his grandma didn't mind. Aren't grandmas great?
We love putting new spins on classic dishes, and when Safeway asked us to do it for a traditional Thanksgiving recipe, we were excited, and came up with this pumpkin pie blondie recipe.
I think these blondies give traditional pumpkin pie a run for its money. They've got a delicious rich, moist, pumpkin-y flavor, lots of cinnamon and spice, plus, they're easy to serve, perfect for a potluck or to give as a gift!
It's a rainy, gray day, so I'm excited to share my favorite cinnamon apple raisin bread pudding recipe.
This bread pudding is so warm and moist. It's like biting into a fluffy, sweet, cloud of apples, raisins, and cinnamon. Plus, I topped it with a drizzle of Nutella just to give it a slight hint of chocolate. So scrumptious!
We were given a basket of goodies from Kraft and asked to come up with our own recipe. How fun, especially when the basket contained two of my favorite ingredients.... chocolate and marshmallows!
I knew instantly I wanted to make cookies. But sometimes it's hard to add marshmallows to cookies because when you bake them, the marshmallows can sort of evaporate.
I wanted to create something my daughter would love for Valentine's Day, and boy, did these Rice Krispie Treat heart wands knock it out of the park! Plus, because they're so easy, she could help me with them.
The second Sterling Vineyards Ultimate Host Challenge has just begun, and if you love pairing wine and desserts, this challenge is for you!
To enter, just invite friends, family, or a significant other over (all guests must be at least 21) for an evening of sweet treats and wines from Sterling's Napa Valley collection.
It's been hot hot hot here in Palo Alto, so I wanted to come up with a recipe that would be cool and delicious. That's why I excitedly created these strawberry and orange granitas.
For those of you who don't know, granita is an Italian dessert that's a cross between a snow cone and sorbet. It's sweet and icy, simple to make, and the key to getting the texture just right is to mix it every twenty minutes with a whisk while it's freezing in the freezer. Plus, I added a little champagne to each flavor to give them both a nice zing.
