Nutella Cream Cheese Brownies

“What’s your favorite thing to bake?”

I often get asked that question and I always answer with the same thing: BROWNIES. I love a good, rich, chewy brownie, fudgy and intense, the kind that has zero cakiness, and bursting with deep dark chocolate flavor.

And yet, it’s almost the end of August and it’s only my second brownie recipe of the year. (The first were these Chocolate Cherry Truffle Mini Brownies that I made for Valentine’s Day). And it’s not like I haven’t been making brownies all year – I have, maybe at least once a month, I just haven’t been documenting them. Eeep. Apologies, dear readers. Let me make it up to you with these majestic Nutella Cream Cheese Brownies.

Little G Ice Cream

I fell hard and I fell fast for little g ice cream. I love the strawberry shortcake flavor, and I love that it's made in Boston by 17-year old Grace.

This Avocado Ice Cream is inspired by the ice cream of my youth. And it's a no churn recipe, meaning you don't need an ice cream maker to whip it up.

Zesty Salami Pasta Salad

I've combined some of my favorite things (pasta, cured meat, mayo, spice) for a not-your-run-of-the-mill pasta salad, guaranteed to be a hit at your next BBQ or summer party or weekend breakfast (no judging).

smores truffles with rum

The same s'mores flavors I love, in portable, poppable form! Filled with pillowy marshmallows, creamy chocolate, and graham cracker crumbs. Plus a little bit of alcohol.


In-N-Out Burger, animal style, was our first meal when we arrived in San Francisco a few weeks ago. Animal style means mustard-grilled patties, thousand island spread, grilled onions, and extra pickles. We got two...
