Maple-cayenne popcorn

This popcorn was gone in a flash. If you’d like to slow yourself down, try offering this up with a bowl of nuts and dried cranberries on the side. Or just try not to be a snack monster like I am.

Double chocolate-almond cookies

I’m pretty much almost always craving chocolate, and I think there is little else in the world that pairs better with chocolate than a little salt and some nuts. And wine. But that’s separate.

Curry-butter potatoes and asparagus

I love the idea of adding a few spices to melted butter and pouring it over vegetables. Indian flavors are my weakness right now, but next time, I might try a mixture of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger over carrots or sweet potatoes.

Peppermint cookies with chocolate drizzle

I found a basic shortbread recipe and just played around with flavors that I enjoy. In this case, it was peppermint and chocolate!

Peanut butter fudge with chocolate chips

This fudge got a little crumbly on me, quite possibly because I used natural peanut butter. But you’re not the queen of England, you can tolerate a crumb or two.

I took my fudge a step up and added a little crushed red pepper to the top. It's totally optional, but I love a nice, spicy chocolate.

I took my fudge a step up and added a little crushed red pepper to the top. It’s totally optional, but I love a nice, spicy chocolate. This is also a little bit of a nod to one of my favorite hot cocoa recipes from our 2011 Loving Cup guide.

Witches' fingers

My mom would make these using a different recipe, so it was one of the first ideas that clicked in my head for Halloween desserts. You can use diluted red food coloring to paint the nails, or just keep them a natural brown as I did. And totally let the fingers wear some spider rings.

Maple leaf cookies

I received nothing but great reviews on these cookies, and not just from Bill (who, for the record, doesn’t even really like sweets all that much).

Baboo's potato salad

Over the Father’s Day weekend, I tried to remember the foods my dad loved to eat. My list included a lot of the Baboo Saniga staples: halupki, haluski and apple crisp. And this potato salad made the list, too. Baboo often made it for Easter brunch and served it with ham and green beans. The whole family loved it, and she’d make big batches that could be heated up later or eaten cold, straight from the fridge, with a fork. Which is exactly what Dad would have done.
