This March 17th, you won’t need the luck o’ the Irish to find a perfect St. Patrick’s Day dessert recipe. Get the shenanigans started with easy-to-bake, homemade chocolate brownies spiked with luscious Irish Cream. These flavorful, fudgy treats are surprisingly light, so you can indulge and still have room for all that green beer. Cheers!

Autumn has officially fallen on the Big Apple and to celebrate the harvest season, I enjoy filling up my kitchen with the warm, comforting smells of fall-inspired treats. For my Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes, I zest up creamy pumpkin with a blend of savory spices, mix in chopped walnuts for added texture and top each little cake with a dollop of my Cream Cheese icing (recipe below) before decorating. I hope these pumpkin-y goodies become one of your new fall favorites. Enjoy!
