Ever want a sliiiightly fall bread, but not want to go for the full sweet loaf we so often think of as pumpkin bread? These rolls have a hint of the floral pumpkin sense on your tongue when you eat them, that just hint at fall, but still fit with your dinner. I first foundContinue reading “Pumpkin Cloverleaf Dinner Rolls”
2020 has been a year. I think we can all agree this has been the year of cortisol. This election has divided our nation and we are all freaking out. Many of my friends have talked about plans to distract ourselves today and ensure we are not watching returns all night. I kept myself busyContinue reading “Election Night Baking – Sourdough Discard Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip Muffins”
I kid you not with this title – these cookies have been getting me through 2020. In case it’s not clear from the blog, I’m a bit of an obsessive baker. I use it as a form of stress relief, but rarely plan on eating all I bake. I used to bring all the excessContinue reading “Quarantine Survival Cookies”
Quarantine breakfasts. I prefer a lazy slow morning and have life-hacked batch cooking breakfast that I can eat over the course of the week, rather than having to cook each morning.This egg bake might be called a crustless quiche, but that sounds so fancy for a lazy, messy meal. If you are serving this toContinue reading “Savory Egg Bake”
I literally woke up on Saturday with an idea for a variant on the epic cookies that shattered the internet and set to work. It feels like half of Instragram has tried Alison Roman’s salted butter and chocolate chunk shortbread. They’re flaky, salty yet sweet, buttery bites of deliciousness. For one family party or another,Continue reading “Salted Chocolate Chunk Almond Shortbread”
THAT cake – the one passed down generation to generation, and your family waits for all year. This cake first entered my family’s lives 2 years before I was born. My mom was in the local park trying to let her two young boys run off some of their energy. She met another mom whoContinue reading “Flourless Chocolate Cake”
A year in the making. One of the easiest things to bake is a simple blondie recipe – melt some butter, add some sugar, egg, flour, and you’re pretty much set- but oh, the possibilities! My starting place was another Smitten Kitchen recipe entitled, “blondies, infinitely adaptable,” and from there, I went down the rabbitContinue reading “Epic Blondies”
Bored in quarantine. I love bread. I love yeast. I love the smell of fermenting dough as it rises. I’m also lazy, so I generally do not get along with breads that require an overnight rise. The only exception has been challah for family holidays, when I have some pressure on me to try aContinue reading “Orange Chocolate Babka”
My most requested / shared / appreciated creation. A few years ago, the two-ingredient banana / oat cookies were making the rounds of the internet. Like everyone else, I gave them a try and began experimenting. Bananas and oats, well, that is a healthy start. How can I make these more nutritious? How can IContinue reading “Banana Breakfast Bites”
The definition of a chronic migraine is a migraine headache occurring on 15+ days per month for more than three months. I’m one of those who gets 24/7 pain for months on end. Apparently, that puts me in with 1% of the population – I always knew I was special! I’ve had this condition forContinue reading “Chronic Migraines & Me”
