Chocolate S'mores Cupcakes

I had such a good time baking and decorating with my friend George, that I decided to do a second installment of Baking with George! This time I'm sharing these amazing S’mores Cupcakes. They are so special and were so much fun to make. My family loves old fashioned s’mores and the cupcake version is just as good!

Baking with George & Cassandra

Baking with George & Cassandra

I’ve always loved baking but I’ve never been adventurous with it. I love making birthday cakes for my family (they're usually pretty basic), and I’ve always wanted to elevate my decorating game. I see all these beautiful cakes that look simple to create, and they never turn out the way I want. Through Instagram, I found that my hairdresser George dabbled in baking and cake decorating - I saw his Sprinkle Cake and immediately wanted to try it! Last week George came over to Cassandra’s Kitchen to bake and decorate with me. It was a game changer. So easy and so much fun! Now I'm super excited to try new things with my baking and decorating!

Entertaining with @StoreBoughtIsFine

There are lots of things I love about summer in NYC: long days of sunlight, fresh peaches, playing "identify that smell" on the streets...but the thing I don't love is my inability to entertain in my apartment. I can't imagine torturing my friends by using the oven or stovetop, creating a sauna in our sixth-floor apartment. So when the weather cools, I immediately plan the meals I've been thinking about for months...

In The Kitchen - Ina's Flag Cake

In The Kitchen - Ina's Flag Cake



The famous Ina Garten Flag Cake. I would bet that if you’ve lived in America for any amount of time or even happened to visit in the summer months, you’ve seen some version of the Flag Cake. This time of year, the fruity stars and stripes are all over checkout aisle magazine covers and cooking shows. It’s so festive and fun - even Taylor Swift and her famous friends are fans of Ina’s Flag Cake.

In The Kitchen - Melted Ice Cream Cake

One of my favorite traditions in our house is the Birthday Meal. The birthday gal (or guy) gets to pick what they want to eat for dinner on their birthday. And, of course, they get the cake of their choice. For the past few years, my daughters have been really into Trifle cake. Thankfully, this year my daughter Lexi wanted a change so, together, we invented Melted Chocolate Ice Cream Cake. I promise, it’s better than the name suggests and you’ve probably had it before – just never gave it a name!

In The Kitchen - Almond Orange Cookies

If you visit our blog at all, you know we’re on a mission to find healthier options for our families. We also don’t want to sit around eating stuff that tastes like cardboard – as if our kids would go for that. We’re far from perfect…but everyone once-in-a-while we come across a recipe that, healthy or not, is REALLY super yummy (and thankfully free of refined sugar and gluten).

In The Kitchen - Homemade Ice Cream

Summer has officially begun and I’ve been wanting to prepare a fun dessert to make a normal family weeknight feel a bit special. I decided there’s nothing better than homemade ice cream. On Mother’s Day (two years ago) I got an ice cream maker ...
