Peanut Butter & Chocolate Rolo Cookies

Is that a long enough name for a cookie?

Has it been a long enough time since I wrote a blog post?  Or should I stay away for another, oh, I dunno FOUR MONTHS.

I would like to take this opportunity to make a post-dated announcement: Fleur-de-Licious went on a brief hiatus, due to…intern year.  It’s the real deal.  These 80+ hour work weeks are no joke.  But if my New Years Resolution is going to involve cookies and stuff (like, making and eating more obvi), then I see this as a perfect time to make another announcement: FLEUR-DE-LICIOUS IS BACK Y’ALL.

Red Wine Fudge Cake

YOU GUYS I’M HOME.

Like, HOME home.  I know you’ve all been wondering to yourselves, where’s Hannah?  (False.)  What could she possibly be doing that’s more interesting than the blog? (Not much.)

Despite all rumors to the contrary, I was not in fact traveling the world.  (There were no rumors.)  I WAS traveling the country.  Not on like a cool RV-type old-fashioned style road trip.  On planes.  And uber rides.  And random public transport.  And taxis and shuttles and moving sidewalks.   (more…)

The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap

It’s that time of year again!  Time for shopping and fighting to get the last parking spot in a half mile radius of the mall.  Time for getting red sparkly nail polish on your fingers AND toes because you can.  And of course, time to bake & send and receive & eat 3 dozen delicious cookies! (more…)

Devil’s Food Cake with Strawberry Buttercream

I’ve realized important two things.

First, I don’t eat enough bagels.  From a health standpoint, I’m sure I eat enough bagels.  There’s probably not a daily recommended allowance of bagels, although there should be, and it should be 5.  When I got home from the hospital Sunday morning, I stood in front of my fridge for far too long, trying to figure out why I didn’t want to eat anything that was inside (aside from the fact that there’s basically just eggs and string cheese in there).  (more…)

Double Chocolate Ice Cream Sammies

Sometimes you wake up and heat up day old pizza in your cast iron skillet and eat it for breakfast.

Sometimes you just go to Whole Foods and buy apple cider vinegar and a single coco La Croix and a pint of Jeni’s ice cream. And that’s it.

Sometimes you go to Trader Joe’s before work on a Wednesday and buy a single greek yogurt, an apple, chocolate & sea salt almonds, and peonies. Because how do you show up at the office without those things?

Sometimes, you just do the things that you want to do. Because you’re an adult and you can.

Chocolate Whisky Bundt Cake with PB Glaze and Chocolate-Covered Potato Chips

Whew. What a title, right?!

I made this cake for my old Roomz and another good friend from law school after they reminded me that it had been a really long time since they had eaten anything “Kate baked.” So, like, maybe I went overboard trying to impress them is what I’m trying to say…

Isn’t it weird how things happen like that, though? You spend three years seeing a person every day and sharing fridge space and borrowing eggs and telling each other to “PLEASE EAT SOME OF THOSE COOKIES SO I DON’T EAT THREE DOZEN BY MYSELF.” And then, one day, you stop doing that. And suddenly, it’s been six months since your old Roomz has eaten anything you’ve baked.

Ugh, change. Amirite?!
