Chocolate Chip Pretzel Candied Pecan Cookies inspired by The House With A Clock In Its Walls

My family and I were invited to a pre-screening of “The House With A Clock In Its Walls” this past Saturday, the new movie directed by Eli Roth (Hostel/DeathWish)and starring Jack Black and Cate Blanchett. The House With A Clock In Its Walls is a magical kid-scary film. It reminds me of the movies that used to be made back in the 80’s that were just frightening enough to make you jump out of your seat, but nothing that would project your dreams into nightmares.

This post is sponsored by TADIN Teas. All opinions and recipe for Rose Cheese Tea are 100% my own.Tadin Rose Buds Make Delicious Cheese Tea. Enjoy with a cookie for a tea that taste like cheesecake!

People are not really sure what to expect when you say cheese tea. I think it throws them for a loop until they realize exactly what it is. Imagine a beautiful sweet tangy cousin to whipped cream or the no-bake cheesecake batter that you wish you could drink out of a straw. Picture that creamy thick deliciousness on top of Tadin’s Rose Bud tea. Makes sense, people pair cheesecake with fruity flavors all the time. (more…)

Moist Layer Orange Cake With Buttercream Frosting has been the topper to my month of August and my headache. I have made the cake pictured above a few dozen times from a recipe I had jotted down on a torn piece of paper and casually placed amongst my books. Most recently my handwritten recipe has gone MIA, which threw me into a total panic, because a dear friend was requesting it. I kept asking myself why didn’t I ever put this recipe on my blog? How in the world did I misplace one of my treasured recipes? It was back to the development drawing board for me. To be honest, I had to make 3 different versions of my Moist Layer Orange Cake With Buttercream Frosting until it tasted exactly the way I remember the outcome tasting of my handwritten recipe. Here it is… never to be lost again. (more…)

falafel encrusted avocado tacos are plant based

A while ago a friend of mine had posted a picture of avocado tacos and one of the persons in the comment section asked “how do you keep the crust from going soggy?” The person who posted never responded, because they probably didn’t have an answer. I thought that to be a legitimate question and have never forgot about it. (more…)
