Croissants

School is winding down, but my most recent assignment was to learn how to something. Of course, I immediately knew I had to tackle a new recipe, and croissants have been on my bucket list for a while. I always see my Aunt Vickie make beautiful looking croissants, so I got some tips from herContinue reading “Croissants”

Samoa Bars

This one goes out to what I consider one of the most underrated Girl Scout cookies. I always reach for a frozen thin mint when I can, but I forget that Samoas can be equally as delicious. These were a wonderful accident because I had a bunch of leftover chocolate chip cookies that had wentContinue reading “Samoa Bars”

Creamsicle Cake

Nothing says summer like the nostalgic flavor of a creamsicle. The one thing better is the classic New Jersey Kohr’s ice cream cone, but it’s the same idea. Bursting orange and vanilla flavor, cold and refreshing on a summer night. This cake is equally as amazing, with moist vanilla cake and smooth, creamy frosting. ItContinue reading “Creamsicle Cake”

Best Whole Wheat Banana Muffins

My mom has a bad habit of buying bananas she does not eat. Every week she gets a bunch of bananas from the grocery store, and every week I end up freezing all of them. After I had filled nearly 3 gallon ziplocks full of bananas, I decided I should try to use them up.Continue reading “Best Whole Wheat Banana Muffins”

Gluten-Free Slutty Brownies

If you’ve never been fortunate enough to encounter the masterpiece that is the slutty brownie, let me enlighten you. Slutty brownies are three magical layers of desserts — each delicious in their own right — that come together to form something even more amazing. I’ve been making these since late elementary school with my sister,Continue reading “Gluten-Free Slutty Brownies”

No-Bake Chocolate Orange Tart

Nothing says winter like a good chocolate citrus dessert! This tart fresh tasting and an indulgent tasting dessert that won’t leave you feeling heavy and ready to enter a sugar coma. I even shamelessly ate leftovers for breakfast after the first day I made it. It’s not too sweet and the majority of it canContinue reading “No-Bake Chocolate Orange Tart”

Brown Butter Caramel Centered Chocolate Chip Pretzel Cookies

Merry Christmas Eve! I’ve been on a cookie baking frenzy lately. I made about 10 dozen cookies in the last week, no exaggeration. I’ve been giving them out as gifts (and of course sampling along the way). These cookies are decadent, bursting with flavor, and not as hard as they look to make. They haveContinue reading “Brown Butter Caramel Centered Chocolate Chip Pretzel Cookies”

Red Velvet Cake Bites

These cake bites were actually one of those happy mistakes I always talk about. I was originally making a regular cake, but I wasn’t happy with how my frosting job was going and I was in a bit of a time crunch to get them done. I made a quick decision to turn them intoContinue reading “Red Velvet Cake Bites”

Pecan Pie

Soooo… we had 3 pies for 3 people this Thanksgiving. My mom ordered blueberry from Whole Foods, which was very good, but I couldn’t help myself and also made two more. For my family, Thanksgiving wouldn’t be complete without apple pie, see last week’s recipe. However, I also really like pecan pie, and I’ve neverContinue reading “Pecan Pie”

Breakfast Apple Crumble

This is such a great breakfast treat recipe. It is super easy to make ahead and serve to a large group, especially during the holiday season. It’s like having apple pie, but before dinner instead of after! You could also serve this as a lighter dessert, but I usually opt for my Autumn Harvest orContinue reading “Breakfast Apple Crumble”
