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!
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.
These Cranberry-Lime Pecan Crumb Bars are a more sophisticated twist on the humble crumb bar. With a hint of lime in the filling and olive oil in the crust, you can’t go wrong. You will want to put bags of fresh cranberries in the freezer just to make these all year round, they are that good! More
Even though we are Fluffy European Buttercream fans, we must say this Whipped Vanilla Bean Frosting is quite amazing. It’s sweet, creamy, and perfectly fluffy. Plus, it tastes just like premium vanilla bean ice cream! The use of vanilla bean in the frosting creates a richer, bolder, vanilla flavor that showcases all those teeny-tiny vanilla bean flecks.
Melt-in-your-mouth butter crust and thinly sliced apples layered with homemade salted caramel sauce is pie heaven. More
