Deluxe Peppermint Mocha Cupcakes

Deluxe Peppermint Mocha Porter Cupcakes

I bake cookies for Christmas all the time. Occasionally I throw in some candy or nuts. But how much can you really do with nuts? I wanted to embody what I love about Christmas into one dessert. Every year, just after Thanksgiving… or lately, just before… the Starbucks red cups come out and every year……

Murtant Turtle Babies

Mutant Turtle Babies

Genius. Badass. Trivial Pursuit Champ. Inventor of Revolutionary Devices. Protector. Witty. Master of Ninjitsu. Why wouldn’t I have had a massive crush on Donatello as a child? I was big into the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Being a child of the late 80s/early 90s… I don’t really even think it was an option. I watched…

Groot Bark

Groot Bark

I’m a Marvel girl (though sadly, I’m not Marvel Girl), but I don’t have a lot of experience with Guardians of the Galaxy. I stuck around X-Men and the Avengers and never really ran out of material to read, watch and be entertained by. When the Guardians film was announced a couple of years ago,…

Easy Chocolate Stout Cupcakes

Easy Choklat Stout Cupcakes

I am guilty of this. I think a lot of food bloggers out there try to make everything from the scratchiest of scratch to prove their worth. But the truth of the matter is, that’s not always what it’s about. Sometimes my readers want a simple delicious recipe that they’ll actually make because it doesn’t…

Founder's Porter Pretzel Truffles

Founders Porter and Pretzel Truffles

There are few things greater in life than the combination of sweet and salty. Especially when the sweet component comes from chocolate. But I’m not about to be satisfied with that. I WANT to make it better. Oh wait, I did. I added beer. These easy-to-make/easier-to-eat Porter & Pretzel Chocolate truffles are going with you…

Great Lakes Blackout ShakeGreat Lakes Blackout Shake

Blackout Shake

I don’t think it’s any secret that I’m partial to Great Lakes Brewing Company. Not just because it’s in Cleveland (though that doesn’t hurt) but because it’s awesome. I’m big into porters and stouts and I can’t say enough about the Edmund Fitzgerald Porter and the Blackout Stout. So this week on DrinkingCraft.com, I whip…

Holy Shit Snacks and Green Russians - Archer Style!

Holy Shit Snacks!

Holy Shit Snacks! The new season of Archer premiered two weeks ago on FX. The show is taking a huge detour from what we’re used to and surprisingly, it’s not a suckfest. I was concerned that leaving the spy agency aspect of the show would be a mistake, but it doesn’t feel forced and is…

Snow Bunnies

Snow Bunnies

One thing that was always a huge hit in my home growing up was “puppy chow”… also known as Muddy Buddies. Basically, Chex cereal covered in peanut butter, chocolate and powdered sugar. A super simple recipe that’s always a hit. In order to advance it a little, I decided it needed a little salty flavor,…

Buckeyes, a Christmas Classic

Classic Buckeyes

If you’re from Ohio, I don’t have to explain this recipe to you. If you aren’t, I may need to. Buckeyes are a poisonous nut that grow on Ohio’s famed state tree. Also, weirdly, and probably better known, they are the mascot of Ohio State University. Regardless, it’s a huge deal in Ohio. A very…
