Happy Marriage, or Hjónabandssaela in Icelandic, is a traditional Icelandic oatmeal cake with Rhubarb Jam. It is unclear why this cake is called a Happy Marriage cake; legend has it that it contains the secret ingredient to a happy marriage. Considering the fact that it contains sugar and rhubarb… we would have to agree!
This jam comes together easily. Just simmer on the stove with a few scoops of sugar and plenty of chopped rhubarb, until the entire kitchen is filled with an intoxicating aroma.
Happy PI(e) DAY!
March 14th has been dubbed Pi day. Pi represents the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter (3.14159265359…), and with today being March 14, 2015 (3.1415), SUPER Pi DAY, we had to celebrate with actual pie. Humor us on this most irrational day of the century… this won’t happen again till 2115!
If you are a fan of Mexican Hot Chocolate, or the pairing of chili and chocolate, these brownies are the thing for you. They have a much more sophisticated taste; while they are fudgey, they are not overly sweet; and the spices add a complexity with a delightful after-burn that leaves your tongue asking for more. More
When we do “classic” recipes, we tend to give them a slight twist. So, when we decided to pursue the iconic oatmeal raisin cookie, we searched, adjusted, and tweaked until we ended up with a truly exceptional classic! More
It’s citrus season! We just love the fact that citrus is possibly the brightest and happiest of fruits, and happens to be in season during the dark-grey days of winter. If you have the winter blues, these muffins will bring you the citrus punch of sunshine that you are craving.
Are you a brownie corner person? If you agree that the corners of the brownie pan are the best pieces, you will love these Fudgy Brownie Bites. This recipe makes super chocolaty, fudgy, chewy, and moisty brownies. Yes, I said moisty! These brownie bites fall far from the category of dry brownies. They have the lightest and chewiest texture that we have ever experienced in a brownie, and every bite is a corner piece! Plus, we put Strawberry Buttercream Frosting on these bad boys… Strawberries and chocolate… We are in love.
We have been on a mission to find a great-tasting strawberry frosting that doesn’t use a boxed gelatin or imitation flavoring. Well . . . we found it!
The cold weather has swept in with a vengeance this year, and with it, sore throats and runny noses. Now, no doctor in their right mind will tell you to go eat a cookie… but we thought in a perfect world, they just might.
