If you come to St. Louis and it’s not the dead of winter, chances are high that you will make a stop at Ted Drewes Frozen Custard.

The Best Ice Cream Cupcake of 2015 Is…


The judges had their work cut out for them.  We had some incredible entries in this year’s Cupcake Project + Cuisinart Ice Cream Cupcake Contest.

Stuffed Pumpernickel Pretzel Bites


These pumpernickel pretzel bites have the same doughy, chewy interior with a harder but still chewy crust that you would expect of any soft pretzel.

Pluot and Port Wine Tart with Brown Sugar Crust


We eat more pluots (a plum and apricot hybrid) in our house than any other summer fruit.  They are in our fruit bowl from the first time we see them on the shelves in May until a chill hits the air and they disappear from stores.

Sea Salt and Vinegar Caramel Buttercream Frosting


In all the years of writing this blog, I’ve only created a single food trend: pumpkin pie frosting made from pumpkin pie.

I spent the past week in Nashville, Tennessee.  Nashville is known as Music City, but heading there I was thinking about the food far more than the music.

Spicy Chocolate and Mexican Street Corn Ice Cream Cupcakes

Announcing The 2015 Cupcake Project + Cuisinart Ice Cream Cupcake Contest

Tiramisu Popsicles to Quench Your Summer Tiramisu Cravings


These tiramisu popsicles have two distinct sections.  I prefer the icy and sweet coffee layer spiked with a splash of rum (I may make myself whole popsicles with just that layer sometime!

Cookies and Cream Éclairs


My cookies and cream éclairs start with a pâte à choux (a French pastry that tastes like donuts).  The pâte à choux is then stuffed with cookies and cream pastry cream, drizzled with a powdered sugar glaze, and sprinkled with Oreo pieces.

Vegan Vanilla Meringue Frosting Made with Aquafaba


I gave my unsuspecting mother-in-law a cupcake with vegan vanilla meringue frosting made with aquafaba.

Pop Rock Popsicles


These pops rock! (I had to go there.)  Much as I love my Pop Rock Rice Krispie treats that actually snap, crackle, and pop, I adore the idea of popping popsicles!

Streusel-Topped Peach-Stuffed Corn Muffins


Corn muffins are often unremarkable – although they always make superb delivery mechanisms for honey butter.

Southern Sorghum and Bourbon Pecan Butter


My master plan was to make a southern sweet pecan butter to spread on corn muffins.  Because things rarely stay simple around here, the pecan butter turned into sorghum and bourbon pecan butter and the corn muffins turned into streusel-topped, peach-stuffed corn muffins.

Easy Pineapple Upside Down Waffles


Pineapple upside down waffles were born out of my mom’s request for pineapple upside down cake and my desire to make something a little more unique.

How to Turn Leftover Hot Dog and Hamburger Buns Into Sweet Breakfast Pastries


Extra buns are the missing socks of the food world.  No matter how carefully I shop, I somehow always end up with more buns than meat after a party.
