Atlanta’s Prettiest Coffee Shops

I can’t believe there was a time when I didn’t like coffee. Fast forward 20 years and one of my favorite weekend pastimes is visiting new Coffee Shops in Atlanta. With more than a handful of local coffee shops popping up in each of Atlanta’s neighborhoods, it’s impossible to showcase them all but I have

Orangettes: Candied Orange Peel

The first time I had Orangettes it was during my study abroad in Paris. Our hotel was situated above a candy store whose delectable chocolate air wafted up through our open windows every day. On the occasion that I finally wandered in there, the clerk assured me I had to sample their signature chocolate candy:

Best Recipes of 2017

This year has been a year of culinary exploration for me! While the things that I eat typically a day in and day out tend to revolve around a consistent healthy meal plan, I like creating an annual bucket list of recipes to make.

Maple Bourbon Caramels

When something is so nice you have to make it twice within a week, you know you’ve got a special recipe. I was up late one night watching the food network and they were doing some sort of Holiday Cookie Showdown when one of the contestants started making caramel for their cookie. I realized at

Hearty Winter Salad with Autumn Glory Apples

During the Holidays, I feel like Will Ferrell from “Elf” in that my main food groups all revolve around sugar. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have Gingerbread cookies every day for breakfast last week, and each night has been concluded with some sort of dessert. Although it is not my intention to

The Most Decadent Hot Chocolate Recipe

When I was growing up there was always that one thing that signaled Christmas time was here: Hot Chocolate. However, try as we might, our hot chocolate never quite tasted like Dean & Deluca’s or the cafe hot cocoa down the road. Mind you my sister and I were using Swiss Miss with the stale

Christmas Cookie Recipe Wreath

So, as I go to post this recipe I must kick myself, because of the 100+ Christmas cookies I made last year, I deleted ALL of my photos on accident documenting all the hard work that had been endured making (and eating) said cookies. The only photo that remains is one photo that I saved

Orange Cinnamon Sticky Buns with a Pecan Citrus Glaze

It finally happened. I finally found myself with enough time and just the inspiration to make cinnamon rolls from scratch. Now, as far as breakfast pastries go, cinnamon rolls aren’t the most difficult thing to whip up ingredient wise but they do require a lot of time. However, these orange cinnamon sticky buns were worth
