Spicy Maple Chicken Wings

I must confess, I don’t cook.  I bake. The closest thing that resembles cooking in my home is boiling water for ramen noodles and throwing frozen meals in the oven.  There’s just something about it that irks me.  Maybe it’s from all the oil splatters, cut fingers and the ever-so-long ingredient list to season an item.  I might be exaggerating on that last excuse but in general, cooking is not really one of my happy …

Kentucky Bourbon Pecan Pies

I couldn’t be more excited to share these mini pies today as it’s one of the best dessert-pies I’ve had in a while.  I was never a pie type of person, but I sure did sneak another bite or two every chance I could get. I intentionally made this pie with the notion that the name “bourbon” has an older, masculine tone which was perfect for my …

Madeleines a l’Orange

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated by just about anything remotely related to France.  From actively learning the language, to attempting escargot (although I’ve been told on many occasions I would be repulsed by its texture and/or flavor and yet I’d still give it a try) and to finally gain the courage to bake several ‘French’ style desserts, my infatuation with this country is indescribable. With the opportunity …
