Homemade versions of Girl Scout cookies I admit it: We’re Thin Mint addicts in our house. I try to limit the number of boxes I buy each season because they aren’t particularly healthy or earth-friendly. But, I have many friends with daughters in the Girl Scouts, and the Thin Mints are just so yummy. GET OFF YOUR BUTT AND BAKE!: PASTRY Last night, I decided to make one of my favorite cookies. These little pastry swirls are so delish! I usually use my favorite pie crust recipe, which I have previously posted, but I decided to try a pastry recipe by the Barefoot Contessa. This recipe calls for lots of butter! I used my 14-cup Cuisinart Food Processor (love it) to make the pastry dough. It's so easy in a food processor, so if you haven't invested in one, do so very soon!

12 Amazingly Good-For-You Green Foods - Nutrition Center image Everyone knows veggies are a must in any healthy diet — the phrase “eat your greens” has been drilled into us since childhood. But fewer than 10 percent of Americans eat the recommended amount of fruits and veggies, a 2009 study found, and fewer still choose the dark green vegetables that boast a myriad of disease-fighting health perks. Even if you’re not a fan of dark green produce (we recommend you give it a second chance), you can still reap tons of health benefits from a variety of green veggies, fruits, and other foods you should be eating — but probably aren’t. Read on and see why the rest of your pantry will go green with envy.

Cruft: Lasagna Cupcakes When Intelligentsia Coffee opened in Pasadena recently, I was intrigued the lasagna cupcakes they served. The cupcakes are made by Heirloom LA, a catering business. About the size of a muffin, a single lasagna cupcake was a delicious meal. Portrait of Poe in Waldorf Astoria Red Velvet I've been absent from the blogosphere for the past couple of weeks; maybe you've noticed. I wish I could tell you that I was on a relaxing vacation, but instead I was recuperating from the worst cold I've had in a long time. There's something lurking out there folks. Beware.

Chocolate Cupcakes with Flaming Strawberries Call me easily amused, but these little torch-topped cupcakes delight me. Besides being a cute novelty item for a party, I think they would add a little drama to the end of a romantic meal. I've been looking for something different to serve for Valentine's dessert, and this is definitely different. The strawberries are hollowed out and filled with a bit of liquor, then ignited with a match.

Prince William's Groom's Cake It seems the whole world is obsessed with the impending royal nuptials scheduled for this Friday. Although I will not be watching, I am still interested in the cake! What does royalty serve on such an occasion? While the royal wedding cake recipe is yet under lock and key, the groom's cake has been revealed.

Fast Food Fun Cupcake Buns + Brownie Burgers + Cookie Fries = One Happy Meal! Or many… I can hardly stand how cute these little guys are. Leftover Halloween Candy Recipes A house full of bags of mini Milky Way and Snickers bars, Gobstoppers and Nerds is almost a necessary evil this time of year. But after the trick-or-treaters have come and gone, what’s a cook to do with all that leftover candy? First, consider reducing your haul — by U.S. Census estimates, most of the 24 pounds of candy we consume annually is eaten around Halloween. Dentists around the country are offering to buy back candy for $1 per pound. Good Ol’ Homemade Brownies — Buns In My Oven This may be a cooking blog, but I find myself sharing some of my deepest, darkest secrets (never having tried oatmeal before, for instance) here. So far you all have accepted me and all the horrible things I’ve kept hidden for years and years. I can only hope that you will continue to stand by my side as I reveal this next bit of private information about myself. I prefer my brownies to be made from a box mix. I’m sorry, okay?
