Vanilla Latte Cupcakes

IMG_1376

It’s Friday! Have a cupcake. I actually made these a few weeks ago, but I really wish I could be eating one right now. These days, I’m not drinking much coffee. Okay, kind of a lie. I’m not drinking much caffeinated coffee. But I made an exception for the coffee [...]

Coffee Cardamom Brownies

If you like Turkish coffee and you like brownies, you will love these. If you like brownies but you’ve never had Turkish coffee, give them a try! Cardamom and coffee both complement chocolate extremely well. I’ve fallen completely in love with the Gourmet cookbook my sister gave me for [...]

Dark chocolate mocha cupcakes with coffee buttercream

I wasn’t going to bake for a few weeks. I made those Double Ginger Cookies a few days ago, ate way too many of them, and realized it would probably be best for that marathon I’m running (in 11 days. OMG.) if I didn’t go crazy with sugar for [...]

Caribbean Coffee Ice Cream

This is vegan ice cream that will completely change your opinion of vegan ice cream. Or at least, it did for me. For years I thought the “cream” part of ice cream had to be heavy whipping cream or else it just wasn’t worth eating (okay, I did go [...]

Hanoi Highlights

We’re back in Thailand after 11 days in Hanoi.  While we originally planned to travel the length of the country and into Cambodia, we cut the trip short for various reasons. Our plans have changed at least once a week for the duration of the trip (going on 3 months…) [...]

The Perfect Thai Iced Coffee

I pretty much stick to four main food groups here in Thailand: Iced Coffee, Fruit, Noodles, and Food On A Stick. Every day, I eat something from each group. I’ve made it my personal mission to find the best in each of these groups, and today I’m going to show [...]

Bûche de Noël

My mom always used to make Buche de Noel for Christmas, and this year she passed the torch to me.  I am glad I made a rolled cake this summer – it made this recipe a lot less intimidating.  There are quite a few components to put together, but just [...]

Cappuccino Cheesecake Brownies

Cappuccino cheesecake swirled with an incredibly rich brownie studded with chocolate chips? How could you say no?  These are phenomenally good brownies.  I will be making them again and again.  My husband and I ate a LOT of them in an embarassingly short period of time…and I’m not even going [...]

Chocolate Mocha Cake

My dad has very simple tastes when it comes to dessert.  It must include chocolate, coffee, or preferably both.  For his birthday cake this year, I decided to make a chocolate genoise, which was sturdy enough for 3 layers of coffee cream filling.  I covered the whole cake with [...]
