This month for First on the First, it’s all about penuche. If you’re not familiar, penuche is fudge made from only brown sugar, butter and milk. Traditionally it has no other flavorings. In the spirit of kitchen creativity, I did not go traditional. Instead, I made pumpkin spice fudge perfect for autumn. Penuche has somewhat […]

Have you heard of or eaten brigadeiros? Until very recently I had no clue what they were. A local Brazilian restaurant near work had them on their menu and I was immediately intrigued.

Peppermint and chocolate together are one of my favorite flavor combinations. There’s just something about smooth, velvety chocolate paired with cool, refreshing peppermint that is oh so nice. Peppermint patties are one of my all-time favorite candies, so much so that I had to try to recreate them. (SO easy to do!) They are closely […]

Oh yes, that’s right… Twix muffins! As in a candy bar, in your muffins. I don’t think these are breakfast muffins. They are more like dessert muffins or “I had a hard day at work” muffins. But then again, they are muffins so if you had one for breakfast no one would fault you for […]
