Vanilla Macarons with Sweet Custard Filling

One of my goals this year is to perfect the macarons. I have tried these in the past and I knew that they were going to be a real challenge but I am totally up for it. And wouldn’t you know it, I found a recipe that I love and that I am going to work from. Of COURSE I had to share it with you. Its St. Patricks Day here in the US so I decided to make the macarons light green in honor of the holiday.

Swedish Meatballs

Let’s get real for a minute. Who doesn’t love foreign food? Mexican. Asian. German. French. Italian. The list goes on. Here in our house we love food that takes our taste buds to another world, and Swedish is no exception, which is why I wanted to share this recipe with you – the classic Swedish meatballs.

Andes Mint Chocolate Cookies

Ever since I was a little kid, I remember getting Andes mints in my stocking (not sure why mom switched from those to LifeSavers, but I digress). So for me, it was only a matter of time before I wanted to bake with them. However, there was a really deicious surprise that came out of trying this recipe – that they taste a lot like the thin min Girl Scout cookies – no joke.

Whipped Blackberry Butter

I dont know about you but there are times when I just want something a little on the fancy side in the mornings. Then I realized that I had this jelly that I LOVED – which led me to this recipe – Whipped Blackberry Butter!

Vanilla Buttercream Frosting

Maybe one of the best things to come out of my kitchen and a fan favorite since the beginning. Whether you want to place this on cake, cookies or even whoopee pies, this is sure to please!!

Gnocchi with Spinach and Cream Sauce

While we were on our honeymoon, we had the most wonderful Gnocchi. You know, the life-altering type? Well you know I had to come home and make it for ourselves! Then I remembered my love for Parmesan -Reggiano cheese, especially in a cream sauce. You’re going to want to try this one!
