Almond Tuiles

Some people find almond extract too powerful, but I find it intoxicating! Cookies are light, slightly crunchy and soft in the middle, and just so pretty!

Salted Butter Chocolate Cake

A very dense gooey chocolatey cake. Some people like it runny but I prefer to bake a little longer to have it set and moist.

Cherry and Almond Cake

When Mimi Thorisson announced her new cookbook, I made sure to get a copy after I fell in love with her gorgeous first one, A Kitchen in France. The combination of cherries and almond was such an exotic choice, I made this recipe first. Very French, not overtly sweet with just a right amount of almond taste. I'll be making this cake again for sure!

Breakfast Sandwich

I am obsessed with the egg sandwich at Beet Box Cafe that features a "special" sauce, that I made my own version. My special sauce included the following: papaya, curry seasoning, minced garlic, and mayonnaise. Now I have to perfect the aioli sauce.

Goddess Dressing on Corn on the Cob

Melted butter is my usual go to, but homemade goddess dressing on corn on the cob is just…delicious!


My girl crush who is sweet, generous, smart as a whip, a fantastic cook, and just a pleasure to be with. Did I mention that she's an awesome artist too? Check her out on instagram: denisecummingsartist.

Ricado's Italian Restaurant

A perfect "Italian" way to end a perfect school year with kids I've had the pleasure of teaching their freshmen, sophomore, and senior years. Congratulations Class of 2016.
