Game of Scones

My favorite part about coming home to Penfield, NY is catching up with family and friends who have played a significant role in my life and continue to have a significant impact on my life for many years to come.

With it being my last week at the Library of Congress, I had to bring only the best of the best to my going away “Tea Party” today so, I made these delightful truffles. If you are a coffee lover, like myself, then try out these amazing dark chocolate raspberry truffles below. If you are…

Now I’m (all) “Fo(u)r-Fudge-Seconds”….

Bex has never attempted a fudge creation until now. But, this experiment was quite the success. The result was far from an extremely rich and heavy fudge, rather it was a tasteful light treat to satisfy your sweet tooth craving. I am excited to try this out with my other coconut butter flavors as well and see…

Chocolate, jelly beans, truffles…mmm, the options are endless (all thanks to my Easter package of treats…

Just another morning of pear-adise…

You may be like me in that you tend to grab the same fruits every time you go to the grocery store: bananas, apples, more bananas, oh look…Fuji apples! Occasionally, when other fruits are on sale, I will grab some blueberries, strawberries, or grapefruit but the other day I came to thinking how long it…

Lem-on me, when you’re not strong…

One of Bex’s favorite activities to do is plan out a whole menu/dinner date for friends. This past weekend, I finally met one of my best friends, Emilee Petti! Yes, you heard that right, folks. I met one of my best friends for the first time. Emilee and I share the same best friend of the one…

You walnut regret eating these cookies for breakfast…

And the award for “Best Baking Intern” goes to (drum roll, please)….Breakfastwithbex! I’d say a pleasant sweet treat surprise at our monthly staff meeting was welcomed with open….mouths. Considering my supervisor ate 6 cookies in one sitting and I left work without a cookie to spare, I shall assume that my latest baking experiment was a success. Try…

Get oat-ta town…did you say Coffee-infused oats?!

Coffee. Dark Chocolate. Raspberry. Peanut Butter. Need I say more? This sweet and savory baked oatmeal is worth every single bite. When my best friend, Allison, planned to come over for a true breakfast with Bex before heading back to D.C., I wanted to experiment with a new recipe in order to include a few of her favorite…
