Last night we threw a little Oscar soiree. Really, we'll use any excuse to throw a party and buy new cocktail napkins. Secretary's Day, Earth Day, Daylight Savings...all perfect excuses to have a little get together.
Oh My: S’More’s Pie June 08, 2010
There’s a reason why they put all that deliciously sweet candy up by the cash registers in nearly every store: if you had to find it at the back of the place, you’d likely decide against it before you got up front to pay. But you’re an adult, and once a child sets their sights on a candy bar, there’s no turning back.
Um... ok. Why didn't I think of this?!?!?! Of course you can hollow out a strawberry and stuff it full of cheesecake. Of course you can!!! And just in time for Valentine's Day... perfect excuse to make them! Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

Welcome to the first post in my five week series. I have the most amazing pinterest inspired party ideas to share with you all. 5 Weeks Worth!!!!
This is one of those ‘I-need-a-cookie-right-now-or-I-die’ recipes that can be prepared in almost no time. We all know that kind of situation, don’t we?
They’re cookies. They’re brownies. They’re brookies. Whatever you want to call them they’re good. They combine the taste of a chocolate chip cookie and with the texture of a moist brownie.
I am a teeny bit obsessed with the cookies from the most recent issue of EveryDay with Rachael Ray magazine. This recipe is the second of many cookie recipes on my list to make this holiday season. Sweets are taking over my life! Just ask my coworkers. They get my leftovers, and I think they are starting to resent the way I am forcing them to eat sinful treats.
For those of you who read this blog regularly, you will know that macarons are one of my obsessions. Some of you may remember a couple of my early attempts ( here , here , and here ), then the epiphany of the class at Lenôtre in Paris. Following that class, I had a number of successes and I found the recipe to be very similar to Helene’s (of Tartelette blog ) and I used a combination of the Lenôtre techniques with Helene’s recipe most of last year, with varying success. Being a Taurean (stubborn) and A-type (a planner) what bugged me about macarons was how unpredictable they were. On many occasions I have wanted to make them for dinner parties or gifts but given the fact that I never knew if it was going to be a “feet” kinda day, I always chose something else.
A lot of people get the wrong impression about macarons and avoid making them because they’re supposedly the most difficult thing in the world to make. Truly, they’re not difficult at all. What is difficult is mastering them. For some reason people mistakenly think if something can’t be mastered on the first try, it’s too hard to fool with. But there’s no reason to master macarons on the first try.

We were recently browsing through our fabulous new Community Recipe Gallery and stumbled upon the perfect seasonal treat: Pumpkin Cupcakes with Salted Caramel Buttercream Frosting submitted by LaurenConrad.com member, Kelby Peachey . (Just reading the name of this culinary confection makes our mouths water.)
It's National Cookie Month and this Sunday, October 28th, happens to be National Cookie Day... So in honor of these random cookie holidays I thought I'd share one of my favorite cookie recipes: Oatmeal Cookies with Salted Peanut Butter Chips.
