Healthy, Gluten Free Strawberry Short Cake

My sister’s birthday is coming up, and for those who don’t know, she has Celiac’s Disease, which means she’s is gluten free. This means she. any eat wheat, rye, or barely. That’s why this super healthy, yet super delicious dessert is based with almond and oat flour. It is in turn extremely high in proteinContinue reading “Healthy, Gluten Free Strawberry Short Cake”

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”

Love & Lemons Sesame Soba Noodles

I’ve talked about Love & Lemons on the blog before because it has always been one of my favorites! I love the blog and the cookbooks, and I draw inspiration from a lot of her recipes. I joined her cooking club this year and I’m loving it! Every month she sends out a new recipeContinue reading “Love & Lemons Sesame Soba Noodles”

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”

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”

The BEST Apple Pie

Happy belated Thanksgiving. This apple pie is one of my specialties, and Thanksgiving wouldn’t be complete without it. It’s piled high with crisp apples. I hate when pies feel like 90% crust 10% filling when I would rather it have it the other way around. It’s tart, yet still sweet and juicy. The crust isContinue reading “The BEST Apple Pie”

Zebra Banana Bread

I adapted this recipe from the blog peanutbutterpluschocolate, which is gorgeous if you’d like to check it out. I’ve had it saved on instagram for quite a while now, but I just got the chance to make it. I love the marble look of it and the contrast between the flavors. It is the perfectContinue reading “Zebra Banana Bread”

Chai Cupcakes with Apple Spice Frosting

The flavor of these cupcakes is out of this world. The cake is tender and the frosting is sweet and indulgent. Another great choice for non-pie eaters during the holidays, or just to add another option; they pair prefect with a hot mug of tea or cider. I used Trader Joe’s Apple Cider Jam inContinue reading “Chai Cupcakes with Apple Spice Frosting”
