Mother’s Day Goodies: Give the Woman What She Wants!

Happy Mother´s Day Eve Day! This one goes out to all of the wonderful mothers out there, AND their daughters who may still be looking for the perfect gift to get their loved one. While I wish I had inherited more traits from my mom (like her never-ending patience, and her always-positive attitude), my Mom and I …

The Classic Donut: All the Feels

Today, we’re going back to the namesake. The old namesake. Remember the days of “Will Race for Donuts” (my first blog name)? I do, and fondly. Lately, I’ve been reminiscing on how far this little train that could, has come in the past nine months. What started as a blog meant to help me try …

Mocha Mint Chunk Cookies: Inspiration from the Best

When I think about my favorite cookies in the world, there are a few kinds that come to mind. From a few weeks ago, you’ll remember that Oreos, for example, are pretty damn close to my number one. But, honestly, you know who does it even better? Those Girl Scouts. Come on. Tagalongs? Samoas? I’ve …

Peach Pie Cookies: Hints from Charleston

If you’ve been reading for a little while now, you’ll remember that I went on one hell of a road trip last summer. I saw amazing sights, visited some of my favorite people, and maybe got a speeding ticket. Oh, and I drove a crap ton of miles. Luckily for me, the amount of eating …

The Inception Cookie: Seeing Double

Can I tell you about one of my favorite movies? (That was rhetorical…of course I can!) Inception. First, and foremost, Leonardo Dicaprio. Enough said. Beyond Leo and his overall superiority, the concept itself is such a cool one! A dream, inside of a dream! It makes a gal think! While watching this flick for the …

Lemon Sugar Cookie Cups: Making Up for Lost Time

Guys, I have to say…I’m appalled. Literally, so sad. Why, you may be wondering? Let me tell you. The other day, I was drafting a new recipe and couldn’t quite remember the ratios of sugar to lemon to butter, for my go-to lemon curd recipe. Instead of digging through my binder of illegible hand-written notes, …

Plum Cinnamon Swirl Bread: Doing the Heavy Lifting

Guys, I have to admit something. I’m on a bit of a roll. A roll that I’m actually kind of surprised at, and…proud of. What kind of roll you ask? A non-chocolate roll! (Although, when it comes to rolls, is one without chocolate really worth eating?) For the past month or so, I’ve been trying …

Carrot Cake Scones: Celebrating with a Twist

Guys, let me tell you. If there was one thing I hated when I was a kid, it was carrot cake. Not brussels sprouts, not broccoli, not green beans. Carrot cake. Unfortunately for me, I was literally the only person in my entire family who felt this way. If you were to talk to my …

Homemade Honey Roasted Peanut Butter: Standing Up to the Man

Friends, it’s time we head back to the lab. In the past, we’ve done cookie experiments, international Kit Kat experiments, muffin experiments, macaroon experiments, puff pastry experiments…you name it. Well, today, you’ll need to break out your notepads, pencils, and goggles for yet another test. This time, we’re testing one of my favorite things…in the …
