Starbucks Apple Crisp Macchiato Copycat

 

Starbucks Apple Crisp Macchiato Copycat

Tired of the pumpkin spice latte trend? This festive Starbucks Apple Crisp Macchiato copycat recipe is apple-y, tangy and caramel-y with a bold kick of espresso flavor that beats out it’s cliche counterpart. This macchiato is chock-full of all the fall flavors you’d hope for and tastes just like a cozy apple pie and coffee. In this recipe we will be making two different homemade ingredients; an apple brown sugar syrup and the thick caramel-y spiced apple drizzle. Let me start with an honest warning – this recipe is worth doubling because when you make homemade syrups from scratch, it’s an effort that won’t feel as rewarding if it’s only enough for two coffees. What a sad day that would be. Not an iced coffee person in the fall? I got chu! You can enjoy it hot too! I share those tips below.

Crumbl Copycat Honey Bun Cookies

 

Crumbl Copycat Honey Bun Cookies

Most all of us have fond memories of Honey Buns! Whether it was your favorite snack you’d get from the gas station/corner store, or a treat you’d get in your lunch box on occasion. Perhaps you even still buy these, I think it’s been a decade since I’ve eaten one, but I’ll never forget that buttery honey flavor and sticky, doughy texture. The popular chain, Crumbl, created a Honey Bun cookie and today I am remaking it! These Crumbl Copycat Honey Bun Cookies have insane flavor and texture and blow Crumbl’s out of the water! From the sticky glaze (that uses real honey and not corn syrup) to the thick, chewy cookie texture, you’ll be wondering why these haven’t always been in your baking arsenal.

And no, you don’t need to have a masterful hand to achieve the embedded swirl design. I am far from a good decorator and I think they turned out great, sure they aren’t all perfect but they still look super cute. Continue Reading…

Easy Burst Tomato Pasta

 

Easy Burst Tomato Pasta

Garlic, white wine, butter, tomatoes, pasta and parm, are basically all you need for this easy burst tomato recipe. Add a juicy sautéed chicken breast, shrimp or salmon for protein if you so desire, or just enjoy it without meat. I love simple meals that I can create by using leftover ingredients in my cupboard. My parents just left town a few days ago and I had a bag of baby san marzano tomatoes that I couldn’t see going to waste. The request from The Hubs was a hearty dinner that was easy on me to make. So I looked around my kitchen: a half bottle of white wine in the fridge, a bunch of freshly grated parmesan cheese in a baggy from a previous family feast, a surplus of garlic cloves, Kerrygold already softened on the counter, and a half loaf of Italian bread in the pantry (and it goes without saying that there is always pasta in my cupboard!). The answer was super duper clear – a yummy winey-garlicky pasta dish with these gorgeous tomatoes and a side of garlic bread.

The BEST Crispy General Tso’s Chicken Recipe

 

The BEST Crispy General Tso's Chicken Recipe

After years and years of trial and error, I am beyond thrilled to be finally sharing the BEST crispy General Tso’s chicken recipe. General Tso’s chicken has always been a favorite of mine but I am often so disappointed by the versions served up at my local restaurants. Either the flavor is off, the texture is mushy, it’s not spicy, etc. etc. The only good part about not having amazing asian restaurants in my neighborhood is the dedication I have to making really, really good Chinese/asian foods at home. The chicken in this recipe is extremely crispy, and the sauce is full of robust flavors from sweet, tangy, spicy, and salty. Your only regret will not be making more! Continue Reading…

Valentine’s Frosted Sugar Cookie Bark

 

Frosted Sugar Cookie Bark

Valentine’s week is here and one of the many recipes I have created for this week of celebrating love (and football) is this fun and unique dessert, Frosted Sugar Cookie Bark! You will love this recipe. Not only does the super thick, chewy sugar cookie base just melt in your mouth and provide the most satisfying and addictive texture, but the frosting is just sweet enough, reminiscent of cinnamon roll icing.  The sprinkles on top add a crunchy bite making this recipe a fan favorite of all ages. The best part is that you can adapt this recipe to any holiday or occasion. Cutting this bark into shapes was almost as fun as eating it. There is something so appealing about these cookies being broken into rustic pieces that just makes them even more craveable.
