Cinnamon Rolls Three Ways

Is there anyone who doesn’t love a warm cinnamon roll? Right when it’s fresh from the oven and the cinnamon sugar and butter mixture is piping hot and extra fragrant…and the cream cheese frosting is *just* starting to melt into every little curve of the roll? For me, that’s a taste of happiness. And selfishly,…

Four Roses Fudge Brownies

Who would have thought that bourbon and chocolate would make for an incredible pairing? I had never experimented with adding bourbon to any of my baking (the closest I’ve gotten is adding cognac or brandy to my tiramisu filling…which is as luxurious as it sounds), so when Four Roses Bourbon reached out about trying their…

The Best Bite of Banana Bread

I’m going bananas. And I’m okay with it. For me, having a loaf of banana bread waiting for me at home is something that fills me, and my tastebuds, with great joy. Granted, it may not be the most conventional ‘snack food,’ but who wouldn’t want to sneak in a bite of sweet and soft…

Yeehaw Cookies

      Cowboys, lassos, and y’all…oh my! That’s exactly what I thought was awaiting me when I moved to Austin, Texas last year – to this day, my dad jokingly asks me if they have spots for horses in the grocery store parking lot. Austin is far from the stereotypical ‘Texas” scene that so…

The Best, Bluest Blueberry Muffins

Whenever my parents would go to Sam’s Club, I would tag along knowing that amid the dauntingly gigantic aisles and bulk items made for a Brobdingnag (Gulliver’s Travels, anyone?), I would get to pick out one of my favorite treats: half a dozen jumbo blueberry muffins. You know EXACTLY which ones I’m talking about, right? The…

Biteheist Online Ordering: Small Business and Beyond

First and foremost, I must share that this post is entirely my own opinion and is an honest representation of my experience with Biteheist. As I’ve mentioned in many posts and proudly share with you all, I grew up in the restaurant industry. My dad, Sergey, (who also doubles as an incredible role model, supporter,…

Happy 2nd birthday And A Chocolate Drizzle!

Happy birthday to And A Chocolate Drizzle! 🎉🎉🎉☺️ You guys. How UNREAL is this!? I have had a love for baking and food ever since I was young, and after much encouragement from family and friends, I decided to channel that love into a new venture – this account (and eventually, AndAChocolateDrizzle.com). I never imagined…

Chocolate Chunk Cookies

“A balanced diet is a cookie in each hand” – words of wisdom to abide by, doughn’t you think? My little brother loves chocolate chip cookies – probably more than brownies…which is saying something. He especially likes when they’re just warmed up (can you blame the kid??) so when he was younger he would toss his…

Extra Fudgey Chocolate Brownies

If you haven’t noticed, I’m a big fan of chocolate. Specifically, I’m a big fan of chocolate treats when they’re warm, just out of the oven, and more often than not, topped with a scoop (or two) of ice cream. You know those ridiculous molten chocolate lava cakes servers will subtly push for you to…

Lainey K’s Vodka Sauce

Fun fact: My life has revolved around pizza since I was 10 years old I know what you’re thinking – “all of our lives around pizza since we were 10 years old” BUT really, my parents opened pizzerias (Stevo’s Pizza in Erie, PA – my dad’s name is not Steve, nor am I a drop…
