I don’t typically do traditional gift guides, so this is more like a list of some cool things I’ve seen around that I would like (or already got for myself). Maybe a sweet tooth in your life would like them too!


Cookie Exchange! Peanut Butter Blossoms (Dark Chocolate Variation)

Sunday 14th December 2014 - 10:14:05 PM


Here’s something fun! I got invited to do a digital cookie exchange by the folks at Patience Brewster, purveyors of handmade gifts, holiday ornaments and home decor. All it involves is posting a cookie recipe and they’ll share their faves on their facebook page. The above comic was drawn before I started this blog and features the best holiday cookies! I now present: Peanut Butter Blossoms (Dark Chocolate Variation) adapted from the Hershey’s Kitchens recipe. Feel free to share your cookie recipes too!

Exclusive Robicelli’s Comic!

Saturday 22nd November 2014 - 3:35:22 AM

Reminder! The Robicelli’s book, Robicelli’s: A Love Story, with Cupcakes: With 50 Decidedly Grown-Up Recipes, is here! I thought it would be fun to share these comic pages I collaborated on with Allison when the book was in the pitching stage. These pages are not in the book, but I think they’ll give you a good idea of the fun tone of the book!robcomfin1a


The book got a starred review from Publisher’s Weekly!  I had a blast drawing Allison’s script for some recipe comics. This book is going to be hilarious and packed with great recipes!

Mont Blanc Oreos and Others from Mitsuwa!

Wednesday 12th November 2014 - 12:15:40 AM

It seems like Japanese Oreo Soft Cookies have been really getting in on the special flavors lately. This past weekend at the NJ Mitsuwa I came across these. At first, I thought they were just Chestnut flavored, but upon closer inspection, I realized they are Mont Blanc flavored, based on the European pastry made with Chestnut cream and sometimes accented with rum. My friends noticed a boozy taste, I thought they just tasted like a soft chocolate Oreo with a light chestnut flavor in the center. Not a bad seasonal flavor idea with the holidays coming soon. (more…)
