Happy Super Bowl Sunday! Today’s recipe is for my husband Aaron – he’s a big football fan and loves all things sugar and Bourbon. It’s tradition that we stay in for the Super Bowl (usually Chicago gets hit with a huge snow storm on this day every year), and we prepare our favorite snacks together and welcome whoever wants to join us! Typically our spread consists of wings, homemade pretzels & dips, buffalo chicken dip, charcuterie, and some sort of sweet treat. This years sweet treats are Orange-Cardamom Sugar Cookies with Bourbon. Continue reading “Orange-Cardamom Sugar Cookies with Bourbon”
Summer is in full effect in late August here in Chicago – boy is it HOT! This past weekend, my girlfriend and blogger extrodanaire Annie over at Give Me Meatloaf and I got together for a Sunday-Funday brunch. Annie put together a delicious Mexican-style savory breakfast hash with all the necessary fixings such as salsa, avocado, cheeses and jalapeños. It definitely hit the spot, especially since we’re both lovers of Mexican food! Continue reading “Rum-Funfetti Cake & Tropical Fruit Layered Dessert”
It’s been too long since I’ve baked a Croatian treat!

Today I’m baking Ledene Kocke which is known as Chocolate Ice Squares. Continue reading “Croatian Chocolate Ice Squares (Ledene Kocke)”
Happy Super Bowl Sunday! Go Pats!
Today I have a savory, homemade baked treat that’s perfect for a Super Bowl party – pretzel bites. I have been craving soft, warm pretzels lately so I’m super excited to make some of my own.
I found this yummy pretzel bite + cheesy jalapeño dipping sauce combination on Pinterest from CarlsbadCravings which she adapted from Alton Brown. I followed this recipe exactly for the pretzels (and they turned out amazing), and I modified the cheese dip sauce which you can see below.
