Friskey Whiskey Time…Chocolate Whiskey Ganache Cake

3 Jul

Yep it’s that time again. I just can’t seem to get enough of my whiskey! This time I’m gonna tell you about one of my absolute favorite cake recipes. I made this for the first time as my birthday treat this year (yes I always make my own birthday cake!). I’ve made this a few more times since then, but the addition of the chocolate ganache is genius. This is my most popular dessert request. Get ready for something rich, decadent, indulgent…and yes, full of frisky whiskey goodness!

Blue Cheese Pecan Shortbread

28 Jun

For Father’s Day this year, I decided to test a savory shortbread idea for my dad. I like testing my shortbread flavor ideas on him, since he’s such a willing guinea pig. I had some leftover pecans from making bourbon balls and decided to add blue cheese to add some real flavor. So here goes with my Blue Cheese Pecan Shortbread.

Frisky Whiskey Time…Pike Pops

16 Jun

Time again to get frisky with the whiskey! I’ve got another recipe idea featuring White Pike Whiskey. I came up with this idea as I started thinking about the Summer season. Summertime always makes me think of icy treats. So what’s better than a fudgesicle on a hot night? A boozy fudgesicle or as I like to call them “Pike Pops!” You’ll never go back to regular fudgesicles again.

Friskey Whiskey Time…Boozy Lemon Chicken

10 Jun

I’ve developed a fascination lately with boozy cooking. It’s a fun way to experiment with new recipe ideas. I’ve been cooking a lot with whiskey, especially in my baking. Check out my last post for Kentucky Bourbon Balls.

My friend is the Brand Manager at White Pike Whiskey, a white whiskey distilled in upstate New York. White whiskey has a totally different flavor profile than aged whiskey; it has a clean finish and mixes well in drinks. So let’s take a boring dish like chicken and kick it up a notch. Time to get frisky with White Pike Whiskey!

Basil Lemon Cupcakes

28 May

My friend Mindy was throwing a cool aphrodisiacs-themed event at her perfume shop MIN New York. If you love unique, niche fragrances, you definitely need to check them out, I won’t buy my perfume anywhere else. Mindy always throws great events so I already knew I wanted to go to this, but thought it would be fun to make some desserts featuring the aphrodisiac ingredients/flavors she would be highlighting.

I chose to feature basil and lemon. I love these flavors together and thought basil would be a surprising choice for a dessert.

Brussel Sprouts & Pancetta Pizza

It’s rainy and cold in NYC today — guess Mother Nature decided to play a late April Fool’s trick on us. After finishing yoga class, I decided I wanted to hibernate in my apartment and make something comforting for dinner. So I thought today was the perfect day to experiment with making pizza.
