Chocolate Cherry Crumb Bars

Can you feel the romance in the air? I only ask because Valentine’s Day is coming, and that means it is time to start thinking about treats to give the ones you love. We don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day at the Shenanigans Homestead. I do not require bouquets of roses, boxes of chocolates, or fancy […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Pie

Have you ever had a Food Sad? This pie was a response to a Food Sad I had recently. “Hold on, Kelly,” you may be saying. “What is a Food Sad?” Well, it is any food – either homemade or purchased – that is, when compared to something else, disappointing. Ever had dinner with someone […]

I have a new love in my life and it is Blood Orange Liqueur. If you have never had blood orange liqueur you need to immediately! My brand of choice is Solerno. The flavor is mild and not overly sweet, and it tastes like fresh blood orange juice but with a distinct – and potent […]

Well, how was your 2012? All-in-all, mine was pretty fantastic! My mom survived a medical scare, and this is what I am most grateful for, but other bright spots include the release of my two latest cookbooks, speaking at Camp Blogaway and BlogHer Food, and discovering that  – after cleaning out 12 garbage bags of […]

Lucky Leaf Blueberry Peach Trifle

I recently attended Mixed on a scholarship* provided by Lucky Leaf. Mixed was an intimate conference, only about 100 bloggers, and it was different and a lot of fun. There were some hands-on cookie and cake decorating demos, sessions on food styling that did not pull ANY punches, parties every night, and movies and snacks […]

Ready or not, the holidays are here! I want to wish you the happiest of holidays – no matter what or how you celebrate. In our house we celebrate Christmas, and that means lots of cookies and sweet treats. Shamefully I am behind on my Christmas cookie baking this year. This week I am going […]

My goodness, it is nearly Turkey Day! I am not sure where the year went, I feel like I just took down the Christmas tree, yet I find myself at the starting line for another holiday season. With most holidays I start my planning with the menu. This year my mother is hosting Thanksgiving at […]

I am kind of over pumpkin. ‘Tis the season for the pumpkin latte, pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin mac and cheese, pumpkin oatmeal, and pumpkin EVERYTHING. I swear if I see another pumpkin recipe I may start punching things. It isn’t that I dislike pumpkin – in fact I really like it – but SO many people […]

Do you know about October Unprocessed? Well, Andrew Wilder over at Eating Rules created a challenge – one month of clean eating meaning you cut out processed foods and eat whole, natural, real food. I love real food! I can’t remember the last time I used a packaged product, or something with insane ingredients, to […]

I love casseroles. They are what I consider the perfect comfort food. Why? Well, they are usually easy to make, they can be frozen ahead for times when the act of cooking seems to much to bear, and they are a complete meal in one dish. As I said, I love casseroles but I rarely […]
