Road Trip, Third Stop’s the (Southern) Charm: Savannah Sweets

Hey ya’ll! (Yes, that’s right. Please imagine me saying that in the voice of Savannah’s very own Paula Deen.) We’ve just left Savannah, having walked about a million miles, sweat about million gallons, and eaten about a million pounds of sweets. So, that’s what this blog is going to be mostly about: Savannah’s sweets. We …

Road Trip, Part Dos: Munching in Myrtle

The first part of this post goes out to Ryan. Biscuit. Bisquick. Best friend since a long freaking time ago. He is the person who inspired my morning adventures on the first full day in Myrtle Beach.

Berry Pie Cupcakes: It’s a pie, it’s a cupcake, it’s an…IMPOSTER!

Road Trip, Stop Numero Uno: Philly!

Greetings from the road, friends! Let me be upfront. My original plan was to do a mid-trip update from the road, and an end of trip update once I got home. Basically, you would be reading about foodie and touristy finds from three locations, each Saturday. But, I have too much to say about what …

Chocolate Peanut Butter Eclairs: French Pastries with an American Twist

Bonjour! This week, I am proudly embracing my French roots…by making French pastry of course! You see, the majority of the time, when I am asked about my nationality, I boast about my Irish heritage. My name is Erin for goodness sake. Erin Go Bragh…”Ireland Forever”? How could my response be any different? But, when …

Double Chocolate Zucchini Muffins, Two Ways: Taming the Beast

You guys, I have to be real with you for just a minute. This project has turned me into a monster. A literal cookie monster. At this point, June is a sugar glazed blur. Don’t get me wrong, it was an incredibly tasty blur, but a blur nonetheless. I went from eating healthful food for a …

Banana Cream: American Pie…sans Jason Biggs

Okay, folks. I promise, after this, I’ll move on. Butttt… Happy Independence Day, again! Now, I know that this particular pie is nowhere to be found on my bucket list, but like I said in my last post, it was just too good not to share. It’s…wait for it… Banana Cream Pie! Wait, what? Similar …

Patriotic Sugar Cookies: A future in surgery? Maybe not…

Happy 4th of July folks! Well, I guess as of today, it’s Happy 6th of July… Well…who says we can’t celebrate America everyday!? As you may remember, in my first post, I mentioned that a sugar cookie with royal icing was on my bucket list for the summer. To be completely honest, sugar cookies aren’t …

Homemade Thin Mints: Come at me Girl Scouts!

Surprise! This week, in addition to the regularly scheduled blog on Saturday, you’re getting a bonus today! (Now that I think of it… for two out of four weeks, I’ve done a “bonus” blog. I fear a pattern is beginning…) This one was a surprise to me too. In fact, I hadn’t decided that I was …
