Savory Egg Bake

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”

Flourless Chocolate Cake

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”

Epic Blondies

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”

Orange Chocolate Babka

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”

Banana Breakfast Bites

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”

Chronic Migraines & Me

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”

Ginger Pumpkin Muffins

The request that started a blog. Although sugary treats are my guilty pleasure, I also created some healthy (well, healthier) bakes. Since I have chronic migraines, I needed quick, nutritious bakes that could also be easily portable. I took my muffins and banana breakfast bites to early morning clinic appointments, infusion sessions, and even toContinue reading “Ginger Pumpkin Muffins”

Welcome!

Well, you’ve gotta start somewhere, right? Social distancing. Shelter in place. Quarantine. Baking. I started baking four years ago after a heartbreak — where I couldn’t sit still and the only thing that soothed me was Mary Berry’s voice. I spent hours watching the Great British Bake Off on loop and figured, if they canContinue reading “Welcome!”
