All Natural Chocolate Chip Cookies

Love chocolate chip cookies, but have an allergy or intolerance to ingredients inside of chocolate chips that stops you from eating chocolate chip cookies?

These chocolate chips have 5 simple ingredients: sugar, cacao beans, cocoa butter, sunflower lecithin and real vanilla. These cookies are soft with the perfect amount of chocolate in each bite.

Macaron Gifts

Since my first attempt at making French macarons, I’ve made them twice more – same recipe (from my trusty MacarOn Café recipe book), but I altered the appearance for special occasions.
 

Earlier this year, I made confetti macarons for my friend’s birthday gift and another friend’s graduation gift, which were coincidentally around the same time. As I was browsing Pinterest one day, I stumbled across beautiful confetti macarons from Style Sweet CA. I borrowed the decoration idea because what’s more festive than confetti? Especially for celebrations like graduations and birthdays. The only step in the macaron process was to put some sprinkles …

 

Food Television

This week, I’ve been staying at home everyday, sick with a cold. That meant no going out to eat, no baking, and lots of rest, hot tea, and chicken noodle soup. Since I was stuck at home and not at work, I was able to watch some of my favorite food TV shows that play during normal business hours. Here are my top 5 shows on The Food Network.
 

 
Of course, I must mention Sweet Genius since I am obsessed with desserts. In each episode, there are four American premier pastry chefs competing in three timed challenges for the grand prize of $10,000. …

 

California Eats: Part 2

Last week, I blogged about some of the California eats that I enjoyed on my recent trip to the West Coast. Today, I’ll continue sharing my food adventure in the golden state with a focus on sweets and snacks.
 

 
As you may know, I am obsessed with French macaron cookies – so much that I learned to make them myself (see post on nutella macarons)! When I discovered that Milk Shop, an ice cream parlor in LA, served macaron ice cream cookie sandwiches, I knew that I had to make a special trip there. Inside Milk, there were display cases full of …

 

Jill’s Story

After a breast cancer diagnosis from her local oncologist, Jill arrived at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute for a second opinion.  During a time of uncertainty, Jill was comforted by the professional and compassionate staff at Dana-Farber.  When Jill worries she’ll have to circle the garage for a parking spot, she is greeted by valet staff.  When she is hungry during appointment-filled days, she goes to a snack station conveniently located on her clinical floor.  And when Jill has questions, her physicians, surgeons and entire care team are there to support her through treatment.  Dana-Farber is a special place that defines level …
