Mascarpone Coffee Cookies

What a busy week guys!  Thanks to all of you for the wonderful response to my Chocolate & Goat Cheese Cupcakes!  I also want to thank Raycom news and reporter Joseph Neese for the feature, and you can check out the story here.  Today's post is another reader request, this time for coffee cookies. This mascarpone coffee cookie is one not to be missed!  It has a rich coffee flavor, and the addition of mascarpone adds a delectable creaminess that will keep you going back for more.

Chocolate & Goat Cheese Cupcakes

A stellar cast of characters create a cupcake not to be missed.

Last week Raycom Media asked me to come up with a dessert for an Oscar themed menu.  I was sent a list of all the nominated movies and a quick summary of each.  After reading through them, there were definitely some obvious desserts that I could have made, but I like to think outside the box. Instead of taking inspiration from one particular movie, I created a dessert inspired by Hollywood's biggest night itself.  One that is elegant, charming, and ready for the red carpet!  You can read the news story here.

Love Monster Cupcakes

The countdown to Valentine's Day is officially on, and I'm in the midst of baking craziness friends. Today's post is fun project fit for all skill levels.  These Love Monster cupcakes are ridiculous and over the top, just the way I like them.  I love that they're so wonky looking, because I think love makes us all a little wonky!
