Chocolate Velvet Torte

This is a choco-holics dream. If you’re not a choco-holic then this will be too rich and too chocolaty for you. I loved this Chocolate Torte and my 1 year old son also loved it.  My husband, on the other hand, took one bite and said it was too rich. That is precisely the reason … Continue Reading


Lasagna Roll Ups

There’s a funny story as to where I got the idea to make Lasagna Roll Ups.  My dear friend Bonnie made a lasagna recently and experienced a kitchen disaster.  A lasagna that overflowed from her pan and all over the bottom of her oven.  Did I mention that Bonnie is a beautiful 100% Irish girl … Continue Reading

Kahlua Chocolate Cupcakes


What’s better than chocolate and booze?  I acquired a taste for Kahlua well before I should have.  My mother, knowing my love for it, baked a cake and covered it with the most delicious Kahlua frosting.  While brainstorming my next cupcake recipe I asked her if she still had the recipe for the Kahlua cake … Continue Reading

For Christmas at my parents house we feasted on our traditional lobster dinner. This year, however, my mother went a little lobster crazy and bought way more lobster than necessary.

Chocolate Lava Cake


Have I mentioned that I love all things chocolate?  Chocolate Lava Cake is no exception to my chocolate weakness.   Chocolate Lava Cake is one of my favorite desserts to order out.  Mainly because I never realized that it really wasn’t that difficult to make.   The more time I spend in the kitchen the more confidence … Continue Reading
