Yummy food that I have cooked up and given my seal of approval!

Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread

Get ready for the zucchini recipes. My garden is in fully swing producing them so I’ll be cooking a lot of them! First up, zucchini bread. I had actually never made zucchini bread before – mainly because I didn’t really grow up eating zucchini. In fact, I don’t think it was until college that I […]

Neiman Marcus Cookies

You may remember a certain fictitious e-mail regarding Neiman Marcus cookies circulating through e-mail back in the mid 90s.

Banana Ice Cream

I am ashamed that it has taken me so long to try this. ASHAMED. Seriously. This may be the only one ingredient recipe I ever post on this site, and it’s worth trying. I mean, it only requires one ingredient and it’s a cheap ingredient. You could even buy it organic and it would still […]
