Gluten-free triple chocolate brownies


How many potlucks with piles of freshly baked flour-filled goodies must a person like me endure? Pure torture for the gluten-free, I say. The host of the last one boasted a brownie taste-test among the spread of chocolate-y confections. So what does one who can’t eat them do? Force-feed all the homemade treats to your [continue reading...]

Strawberry lemonade elephant cupcakes


Don’t let these little elephant cookie toppers deceive you. These cupcakes are a mouth-watering combination of sweet lemon and fresh strawberries made baby shower-appropriate with light blue sugar cookies.

I liked – no LOVED – these bite-sized chocolate-y treats! I surprise just when you least expect it. When you think I’ll zig, I zag. The excuse? Jen’s oral qualifying [continue reading...]

Gooey strawberry chocolate chip brownies


When Chuy read about the strawberry cupcakes I made a couple of weeks  back, he exclaimed in disbelief, “YOU NEVER MAKE INTERESTING CUPCAKES FOR ME!!!” Let me start by saying: this is just not true – he got to enjoy the green tea cupcakes from St. Patrick’s Day. Nonetheless, since he truly felt this way, I [continue reading...]

Strawberries Wild Cupcakes


Pink treats are required when a new baby girl is about to grace us with her presence. Nine months pregnant and about to burst, my classmate Hee-jeong is a glowing mama-to-be. Her friends gathered outside on this anomalous sunny 65-degree afternoon to shower her with all things baby and pink (and yellow…and blue…and green…just to [continue reading...]
