Oreo Truffles {plus a Truffle Dipping Tutorial}

Oreo Truffles + EASY Truffle Dipping tutorial | www.somethingswanky.com

I am all about the no-bake recipes in the summertime (let’s be honest, any time)! And not just because it keeps the oven off, although that’s definitely a perk… The truth is: I am L-A-Z-Y. If there’s a corner to be cut, you can betcha I’ll take it. I like to think I’m lazy, because […]

Stracciatella Yogurt Bowl

Stracciatella Yogurt Bowl | www.somethingswanky.com

I’m a chocolate chip ice cream kind of gal (I’ll ALWAYS choose plain chocolate chip if it’s an option), so stracciatella seriously speaks to my chocolate-chip-lovin’ soul. Stracciatella is basically chocolate chip gelat0. But it’s way better. Because the chocolate isn’t actually in “chip” form. Instead, the chocolate works its way through the gelato in […]

Strawberry Pie

Strawberry Pie | www.somethingswanky.com

This is one of those recipes that really make it a crying shame you can’t just reach through the screen and take a bite. It’s that good. Have you ever had Strawberry Jell-O Pretzel Salad (if you’re not familiar, recipe coming soon!)? This pie tastes a lot like that. It uses a spectacular graham cracker […]

Toasted Marshmallow Rice Krispie Treats | www.somethingswanky.com

Ok. So these are just normal rice krispie treats. Except that the marshmallows have been toasted instead of nuked or warmed in a pot over the stove. TOASTED MARSHMALLOWS. In the rice krispie treats. {omg, can you see those crispy, toasty specks??} Which makes them sort of not normal and completely AWESOME. It’s like making […]

Strawberry Basil Muffins

Strawberry Basil Muffins | www.somethingswanky.com

This year, I’ve become o-b-s-e-s-s-e-d with fresh basil. Don’t ask me how this deliciousness has eluded me for all of these years, but yes, I am just now hopping on board the basil train!

Funfetti Cheesecake Cookies

Funfetti Cheesecake Cookies | www.somethingswanky.com

I love crispy, buttery chocolate chip cookies as much as the next guy (probably more, actually), but these aren’t them. These are deliciously different, made with cream cheese which makes them extra chewy and soft! I think the cream cheese even gives them a little tang, like a cheesecake, but others have disagreed with me […]

New York Style Cheesecake

New York Style Cheesecake | www.somethingswanky.com

Last month, during the week before Mother’s day, I posted desserts that represented all the mothers in my life and bragged on them a bit. This week was supposed to be the Father’s day version of that. Buuuuuuttt…. this week has sort of experienced a hostile takeover by 4th of July recipes, totally pushing my […]
