Gluten free Banana Cake with White Chocolate Whipped Cream

I don’t like to keep stock of a ton of different flours because I can’t use them […]

A light chiffon cake topped with mango glaze and a layer of whipped cream. The perfect light and refreshing summer cake. So last week I overloaded you with chocolate because that’s what I was craving. Today, though, I have a dessert to satisfy someone else’s cravings. Sweet Zainab is having a baby boy and loves […]

Fudgy Mocha Chip Brownies with Espresso Sea Salt

The fudgiest brownies with a hint of mocha and touch of salt to kick any chocolate craving in the butt. Kind of like my beloved blondies, it’s been too long since I’ve made brownies. I know it’s summer and time for light fruit desserts or frozen ice cream treats, but all I wanted last week […]

This weekend is extra special because yesterday Matt and I celebrated our 5-year anniversary! We took L out to an early dinner of Cuban food (so early that we were there for the wait staff’s pre-service meeting ha). I’m so excited, though, because tonight we are going on a date (first real date night in […]

Cinnamon Chip Oatmeal Blondies

Chewy gooey blondies loaded with sweet cinnamon chips. Until this, I hadn’t made Blondies since L was born. Which is a shame. Because 1) blondies are really my thing and 2) they are pretty much the easiest way to bake for a crowd. After churning out hundreds and thousands of them for a couple of […]
