Good Eats and Sweet Treats from My Small Boston Kitchen

Peanut Butter, Reese’s Cup, and S’Mores Loaded Brownies

As a dessert lover, I don’t discriminate. I love virtually all desserts, but I definitely have my favorites. A crispy-on-the-edges-chewy-on-the-inside chocolate chip cookie is one of them, and fudgy brownies are another. These fudgy brownies get an extra special treatment, because not only is the brownie base delicious and decadent, but it’s loaded with some pretty outrageous fillings, too. (more…)


Chocolate Orange Challah Bread Pudding

You know what’s totally out of this world incredible? Bread pudding. You know what’s one of the best flavor combinations you could ever imagine? Chocolate and orange. You know what my favorite type of bread of all time is? Challah. Put them together and what’s the result? The best dessert in the whole wide world. (more…)


Boston Burger Company

When I want to really indulge, I often go for a burger and fries. First off, I’ll take any excuse I can get to eat french fries, but really, the combo is just so classic and comforting that it’s hard to go wrong. At restaurants I visit more than once, I often check out the burger offering, because I really think you can judge a restaurant on their overall skill and awesomeness by how the execute their burger. They’re also great because there are so many different styles and variations that it’s impossible to ever get bored with a burger. And at Boston Burger Company, different styles and variations are the name of the game. (more…)


Buttermilk Ranch Dressing

It’s a rare day that I share a non-sweet recipe around here, but as you can probably surmise, I do eat things that don’t include sugar. Cookies nourish the soul, but the rest of me needs far healthier forms of nourishment 🙂 I received a copy of The Perfect Portion Cookbook recently, and when perusing the recipes, decided to give something savory a try. I’m trying to add more bulk to my diet with extra veggies, but if you’re anything like me, eating vegetables in mass quantities is more of a chore than a pleasure. (more…)


Sour Cream Chocolate Bundt Cake with White Chocolate Ganache

If I could only eat one dessert for the rest of my life, this just might be it. Unbelievable right? Or maybe I just sound crazy. But that’s probably because I am… crazy about this darn cake! And probably crazy in other ways, but best not to get into that right now 🙂 It’s like a dark chocolate cake had a baby with a pound of chocolate fudge than jumped into a pool of creamy white chocolate ganache and lived happily ever after. See? I do sound crazy. (more…)


Peanut Butter Cup Heath Bar Brown Butter Cookies

Here’s the deal: these cookies are out of control. I mean really, peanut butter cups AND heath bar AND brown butter? Outrageous. A few weeks ago, my coworker brought in a leftover bag of heath bars, and I told her I’d make her something delicious if she let me have them. A week later, I presented her with these. (more…)


My Foray into Floral Design, and a new Website!

I told you all recently about my new obsession with flowers, and also that I’m making 2016 the year that I follow my dreams. At first I thought I’d incorporate more of these new changes into Sweetly Serendipity, but after some soul-searching, and a deeper consideration of what I want for the future, I decided I’m actually going to start a new venture entirely. It’s been a long time coming, but I think I’m ready to dive in, and the start of that will be a new website, a new blog, and a promise for much bigger things to come down the line. (more…)
