Pumpkin Crumb Muffins

Hello, Hi. So it’s been officially over a year since I’ve posted anything here, which is kind of depressing huh? August 2015. Quick update on major things that have happened since then: we went on our honeymoon to Italy (oh my gosh, I could talk about that for 5 years but that will have to wait […]

Lime Bars

  It is officially HOT here in Miami. Naïve Californian-Maddy thought it was already hot when we moved here when it was in the high 70’s/low 80’s every day – HA. The weather report has become comical at this point: temps in the high 90s but with humidity it feels over 100 degrees, sunny in the morning […]

Jalapeño Cornbread Muffins

My boyfriend and I spend quite a bit of time in the kitchen. He’s fantastic at the “real food” thing and figuring out which spices and seasonings work well together, all the while not measuring a thing. On the other hand, I’m such a measurement stickler. I will try and help him make dinner sometimes […]

Updated: THE Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Many moons ago I made this Jacques Torres Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe that I had seen so many bloggers and articles raving about. It was consistently called the “best chocolate chip cookies you’ll ever have”. I mean, that is a serious thing to say, but it is true, so I felt it was my duty to […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Filled Cupcakes Dipped in Dark Chocolate Ganache

Everyone has their own opinions on where is the best place to get a great cupcake here in LA. Some people say Sprinkles, others say Magnolia, maybe Susie Cakes, I could keep listing them but you won’t believe where I’ve found a great cupcake.

Cookies and Cream Ice Cream

Alright. I’ve been holding out on you. By you, I am referring to the 5 people that have forgotten that they are still subscribed to this blog. I know, I’m an awful food blogger. Honestly, I have no idea how Annie from Annie’s Eats manages to have a career, two kids, a seemingly perfect marriage AND a […]

Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Every one loves chocolate chip cookies. It’s a fact. For many years I was like the majority of the world and only knew chocolate chip cookies according to Nestle Tollhouse’s recipe. Don’t get me wrong, sometimes I crave that flash back to my childhood, but they’re really just not the best cookie out there. When you […]

Exploring L.A.: The Sycamore Kitchen

Oh hi there. I’m alive and well! I truly hope you are too, and that you haven’t forgotten about this silly little blog. School and work have been consuming the bulk of my time, but when I do have a tiny little break, I have managed to bake a few things here and there. Since I’m not […]

Chewy Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

In my mind, it is still July. So it came as a huge surprise the other day when there was a whole section in the grocery store dedicated to Halloween candy. I tried to resist, I really did… but I was sucked in and ended up buying a bunch of peanut butter cups. As I unwrapped 16 […]
