Confetti Shortbread Cookies

When was the last time you just let it all go and made a complete mess? If you are raising a child then that’s probably everyday. Right? Just the other day I made myself rummage though the entire house to put the clutter away. I couldn’t believe how many of my daughter’s darn hair bands […]

Homemade Birthday Cake Popcorn Balls

I am a baker and bake for a living. I seem to always be in the kitchen. Either I am making some elaborate cake, dessert, or the simple task of cleaning the kitchen after I have destroyed it. We can all say my life revolves around the kitchen. So, while I am baking or even […]

No-Bake Cookie Dough Ice Cream Squares

Summer barbecues are the things that culinary dreams are made of. Juicy burgers, fresh tomatoes, corn on the cob… I love everything about standard summer cuisine and its simplicity. While s’mores, watermelon, and ice cream cones are tried and true crowd pleasers, sometimes, putting a little spin on an otherwise delicious, yet predictable, menu can […]

The Best Graham Cracker Crust Recipe Ever

The crust game is serious business. A faulty crust can ruin an otherwise perfect pie, mousse, or crumble. That’s why I created a no frills crust that’ll be your new go-to for your dessert favorites. (Okay, it’s dessert. Dessert’s got some frills!) I filled this crust with this Coconut Chocolate Mousse recipe and chilled for 6-8 hours […]

The Perfect Eggless Chocolate Chip Cookie

Eggless Chocolate Chip Cookies, perfect for those with an egg allergy or those who like chewy, yet crunchy cookies. These have that bakery feel, where the top gets a little cracked and they have a bite, but are still soft and chewy in the middle. My usual cookie, the one I make almost every other […]

Homemade Apple Pie

I used to buy frozen pie dough, but you’d never know how easy baking your own is! It adds a little bit of an extra step, but the end result is so worth it, I’m not sure I’ll ever go back. This all-butter crust recipe is E – A – S – Y and so […]

Roasted Yellow Squash with Olive Oil and Cilantro Puree

I find that baby food is a reflection of how we eat. My family and I are eating more healthy lately, since it’s up to me to keep my infant daughter healthy. So, when I’ve gone to the store lately, I end up buying things I normally wouldn’t buy for myself, like carrots. Gross. I’ve […]

Angel Food Cake

This is one of those dessert recipes that a lot of us are afraid to try! For me, anything with airy egg whites is always intimidating, but this is one of my favorite cakes and I just so happened to be given an angel food cake pan, so the time was ripe! This isn’t as […]

Easy DIY Crockpot Caramel

This is the time of year when we cover up the grill and blow the dust off of the crockpot, preparing it for its frequent, almost daily, use over the colder months. There is nothing quite like the smell of a delicious and hardy stew or soup when you come in from a long, cold […]

Spinach Butternut Squash Puree

When feeding my daughter Elle during her first food days, she loved anything yellow or orange. She couldn’t get enough butternut squash! If she was being picky, we always knew she’d eat that, no questions asked. Unfortunately for me, I can’t stand the smell of steamed butternut squash. That’s because one day, I forgot to add […]
