Homemade Croissants

So a few weeks ago I teased those of you who follow me on Instagram with a photo of Chocolate Almond Croissants. What I didn’t tell you is that I also whipped up a batch of plain croissants, so I thought today I’d show you how I made them. Don’t worry–I’ll reveal how I made that other variety in a later post. But to make chocolate almond croissants you need chocolate croissants and…

Mixed Berry Pavlova

Hi! I’m writing to you from a world of homework and school and stress but it’s OKAY because I’m off from school this Friday for Passover, which means in just a few days I’ll be eating yummy food like matzoh ball soup and brisket and desserts like this gorgeous pavlova. Actually, I’ll probably be eating a chocolate torte because my brother is a chocolate fiend with a strong aversion to…

In light of my blogiversary, I thought that…

Lemon Amaretti Meringue Tarts

It’s March 14th. 3/14. Which means it’s Pi Day. Which means we all get an excuse (as if we needed one) to make all the pies, tarts, quiches and galettes we can eat! I haven’t posted a pie recipe since those adorable mini peach tartlets back in September, so I thought I’d come back with a bang with these lemon amaretti meringue tarts from Baked: New Frontiers in Baking. Amaretti cookies,…

Rugelach, 3 Ways

Hello everyone! It’s been a little while, hasn’t it? Every time I take a two-week blogging break I use the same excuses: school, crazy schedules, and more school. What can I say? Life is waay too busy right now and I am doing my very best to keep up. That being said, I’ve got a ton of things on deck for this post!…
