Oatmeal Cheesecake Fruit Stars

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 […]

Erin's Hollywood Blondies

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 […]

Taza Mexican Chocolate Fudge

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 […]

y Chocolate Covered Pretzels

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

I’m not afraid to admit when perfectly laid out recipes go astray. Last Thanksgiving, we had some friends over for a makeshift ‘Thanksgiving Dinner” and our friend Alissa brought this pumpkin dip with various treats to dip in it, and OMG – it was beyond good.  And the best part was that it was served […]
