No campfire needed for these chocolate s’mores cupcakes. Rich chocolate cupcakes with a graham cracker base stuffed with melty chocolate ganache, sticky marshmallow frosting, and topped with a toasted marshmallow. The crispness of the air means that fall is on its way. It’s an odd thing, the changing of summer to the fall season. Many of my friends hardly being…

I never considered myself a bread pudding fan, let alone think it would ever become a favorite. Bread, torn up in pieces and put back together? Not very interesting. That was, until Bobarino’s, one of the restaurants my company owns put a bourbon bananas foster bread pudding on their menu. One of the perks of shooting food photography for restaurants…

If I could only eat one type of cookie for the rest of my life, it would be Milk Bar’s Cornflake Chocolate Chip Marshmallow Cookies. These are not your ordinary chocolate chip cookies. They’re both crunchy and chewy, with buttery toasty flavors from the toasted frosted flakes, and insane caramelized toffee flavors from the marshmallows as they slowly melt into…

Day 534265 of quarantine… Spring has made a temporary detour bringing snow to many parts of Michigan. There’s a running joke among Michiganders that there’s always a “fake spring,” then third winter about this time of year. Mother Nature certainly can be fickle when all we want to do is spend some time in the sunshine! Something certainly not fickle…

Is it just me, or was March the longest year month ever? I suspect April will be just as long, but at least spring in on the way here in Michigan and temps are slowly creeping above 50F; hooray! As many of us are now entering week 3+ of self-isolation, baking has quickly become an activity to fill the copious…

In today’s time of home isolation, I, like so many millions of others, am finding it difficult to adapt to the “new normal.” It’s almost unfathomable that 10 days ago all was fine until it wasn’t. I now find myself laid off from a job that I’ve been at for 15 years with no return date in sight, leaving my…

Ever since my first trip to Thailand four years ago, I’ve been on a personal quest to uncover the secret to the Thai mojito. After trying my first one (by accident) in Chiang Mai, I was obsessed (like with so many other things in Thailand after that trip. Mango sticky rice and smoothie bowls anyone?)

The best Italian drinking chocolate in the world can be found in Amalfi, Italy. Wait, drinking chocolate? Don’t you mean hot chocolate?… Nope. Drinking chocolate is the rich, decadent and more sophisticated cousin of hot chocolate, and once you try it, you won’t ever go back to regular hot chocolate again.
