Oatmeal Cheesecake Fruit Stars

by Kate on May 24, 2013

Some Memorial Day Weekend forecast. Guess I’ll be stuck inside eating these – shucks Remember those Apple Streusel Cheesecake Bars from the fall? Augh – delightful.  I was trying to think of a fun Memorial Day dessert and for some reason these popped into my head.  I basically cut out the apples and the streusel […]

I’ll start this off by saying that you may not see the validity in this kitchen bitchin’ post, because this kitchen has things that others in the series haven’t – like a stove – and a full size refrigerator. But the other ladies weren’t running a bakery out of their tiny kitchens either. My cousin […]

When anyone asks where we’re from, I usually say “Boston”, but we actually live in Somerville, which is about 10 minutes (not counting the 24hr a day traffic on 93) from the “city”.  There are mixed feelings about Somerville – it wasn’t always the nicest place to live in years past, but has really gone […]

Sorry for the lull in Quinoa bite postage gang! But as with most things, I prefer saving the best for last – the DESSERT! When I said that Quinoa is a power food, you probably assumed that all these bite recipes would be healthy and good for you. Well – all good things can go […]

Holiday Chocolate Covered Pretzels

by Kate on December 4, 2012

I’ve mentioned before that my family is pretty serious about desserts – well, they’re even more serious about cookie swaps, or so I learned this weekend. My Grammy Murphy is quite the grandmother – she was the first of anyone to get AOL, email and a ‘screen name’, her recipes for things like whoopie pies […]

Pumpkin Cheesecake Dip – 2.0

by Kate on November 13, 2012

I’m not afraid to admit when perfectly laid out recipes go astray.
