A Sweet Interlude

Alternate Titles:
I Eat My Emotions
This is Why I Work Out
I Like Big Butts (and I Cannot Lie)

If someone told me I had to choose between reading and dessert for the rest of my life I'd definitely have to think about it. I love baking. I love drowning my emotions (both the good ones and the bad) in food products with excessive amounts of sugar and carbs. It's what I do. If I could dip everything I ever ate in ganache life would be infinitely better. Sometimes I purposefully eat a smaller dinner just so I can eat more dessert. I vehemently refuse to "healthify" my desserts with such atrocities like applesauce and Greek yogurt. If you're going to do it, you go all the way.

In the spirit of my sweet tooth, made just a tiny bit more prominent since becoming pregnant, I thought I'd share with you some of my all-time favorite dessert recipes (with links).

Peanut Butter Balls

  Happy weekend!


  1. I have such a sweet tooth & love to bake, too -- I'll definitely be checking out some of these recipes.

  2. I'm not a baker myself but would happily eat all of those...

  3. I would take any of those and I'm not even super fond of peanut butter. I recently discovered that there is basil buttercream frosting out there, I don't know how I lived prior to the discovery (but my ass was much smaller for it, I'm sure).
