Citrus Ricotta Mousse

Citrus Ricotta Mousse + S.Pellegrino Essenza

This post is sponsored by S.Pellegrino Essenza but the content and opinions expressed here are my own. Anyone else missing restaurant date nights? Yeah me too! I want to keep doing my part to stop the spread, stay safe, and ease the burden on healthcare workers, but I’m itching for a fancy night out. So to break up the monotony, I’m creating a fancy night in for my family. With a decadently refreshing S.Pellegrino Essenza and a Citrus Ricotta Mousse recipe, I’m bringing a fine dining experience to my kitchen table. It’s amazing how a little TLC and planning can …

Red Wine & Rose Water Brownies

There are two types of people on this earth. Ones who like their brownies chewy and ones who like them cakey. You just chose a side, didn’t you? It all comes down to texture preference. I was raised on thick blocks of light, neatly cut, cakey brownies. My husband was raised on thin slices of dense, messy, chewy slabs. It is a major point of contention in my house. When I make the fluffy version, my normally adoring partner looks down his nose at them, adamantly refusing to call them brownies. ‘This is absolutely delicious cake, love. Can you put …

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Glutino® and Udis®. The opinions and text are all mine. I married into a family of doctors. Of course, it is quite beneficial when I need a flu shot or have a question about a sore throat. But there are times that I find my medically-inclined in-laws quite a nuisance. For example, like the time that my husband’s aunt casually leaned over the Thanksgiving Day table and told me to put down the bread roll because I had a gluten intolerance. Hand to my heart, that was exactly how …

Valentine Rejects Bark

Today’s recipe is for the rejects. The has-beens. The losers. It is also for the lazy. The procrastinator. The anti-Valentine. It’s my ridiculous easy recipe for Valentine Rejects Bark. I am not kidding about how easy this recipe is. It’s so easy, even a love-spurned grump can do it blindfolded on a lonely Valentine’s Day night. I originally started making this bark years ago, as a visceral ritual of candy repurposing. It’s perfect for that random, flavorless cupid candy you get on the day of from a co-worker, friend, or let’s face it… your mom. Yup, I am in my …

Rose Ginger Ricotta Delights

If I were to tell you that this is my last Christmas post for the season, what would your reaction be? I imagine there are two schools of thought among my readership. The first being sadness because you would get an I.V. drip of yuletide if it were available. The second being happiness because you are fed up with everything Santa. If you find yourself in the first camp, welcome my friend. If you are in the second camp, this is a place of peace and merriment so you should just get the hell out. Alright, now that I’ve done …
