Bake or Break | Outrageous Chocolate Cookies Quinn and I are not among the throngs who celebrate Valentine’s Day. That day and all the chaos surrounding it have never appealed to me. Luckily, Quinn feels the same way.

I never had a Pop-Tart until college. I realize that for some people this may cause a shocked reaction on par with my husband’s the time I told him I’ve never watched Goonies before (or Jacob’s, upon discovering the internet). Obviously I grew up under a rock, right? Thus, given my proximity to concrete-like materials you’d think I have been better prepared for the texture of the one I purchased from the vending machine in the basement of my freshman dorm (not at 4 a.m. or anything, either, nope, not this angel!). But I was not.

Peanut Butter Cup Brownie Bites We were having friends over for dinner last night, so I decided to make a treat for dessert. My friend Currié loves peanut butter and chocolate combined so when I found this recipe on Chocolate Therapy, I knew it would be perfect. I followed the directions except for using a mini muffin tin instead of a large muffin tin. They were the perfect little bite sized treats – they were rich, decadent, and so delicious.
Cat Cora + Saturday, April 12 Lavender-Infused Mascarpone Mousse Pastries
This is a recipe I adapted from one I found in “Barefoot in Paris”. We had friends over for dinner so I served this Vegetable Tian and it was a HUGE hit. The veggies were perfectly roasted, the potatoes were nice and tender and the caramelized onions were sweet and salty. The whole dish was delicious and it looked really pretty too. All of my friends loved these roasted vegetables and so did most of the kids.
How to Make Thai Iced Tea From Scratch The past few days we’ve had summer-like temperatures here in New York and we ate outside on our tiny balcony for the first time this year. I made Shrimp Pad Thai and one of my favorite summer drinks, Thai Iced Tea. I could have just gone to one of the many Asian grocery stores in the city, but I really wanted to come up with an all-natural version from scratch. As much as I like the Thai tea you get in the supermarket or at restaurants, it does contain a fair amount of additives and food coloring (ever wonder where that bright orange color comes from?).
Chocolate Mint Brownie Bites I didn’t know what to call these things. Mint Brownie Bites didn’t seem descriptive enough. Chocolate Mint Brownie Bites seemed to fit, but isn’t “chocolate” and “brownie” redundant? Mini Mint Chocolate Brownie Bites? Chocolate Mint Mini Brownies?
Nutella Krispie Treats I don’t know what happened, but all of a sudden we’re on a huge Rice Krispie Treat kick in our house. When I cleaned out my pantry and got it all organized and stocked again, several boxes of Rice Krispies (and several bags of marshmallows) wound up on my shelves…and we’ve already blown through them all. And it’s not even me.
A couple of weeks ago (or was it a couple of years ago? Or a couple of months ago? Or is it next week? I’m confused) I posted this luscious recipe for Pepperoni Pizza burgers: Pepperoni Pizza Burgers. Amen. Supreme Pizza Burgers

Oh dear. I never should have done this. This may be one of my biggest mistakes all year. Can’t take it back now. So we’re totally enjoying our grilled avocados, but my husband innocently asks “What else can you do with avocados?”
Sloppy Joes Recipe The trick to this recipe is to brown the meat well, on high heat. Don't crowd the pan, work in batches, and don't stir the meat until it is well browned on one side. It helps to use a large cast iron pan, or an anodized aluminum pan, as these pans can handle the heat and are relatively stick-free. Method 1 Heat olive oil in a large sauté pan on medium high heat.
