Whole Wheat Pumpkin Cinnamon Swirl Bread

This loaf of bread is the perfect addition to your Thanksgiving table.  If there is somehow some leftover, use it the next day it to make french toast for a delicious breakfast treat. It’s not often that I bake something that requires yeast.  In fact, I tend to think of most homemade breads as something […]

Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll Cheesecake

Last night was my 10-year high school reunion.  I didn’t really know what to expect, but for some reason I was a little nervous about going.  There was the whole cliché of wanting to look good, which isn’t all that convenient two days after Thanksgiving, but I also wondered if it would be all that […]

Apple Cinnamon Blondies

I always thought that summer was my favorite season, but this year I can’t wait for the temperature to go down a bit.  Maybe it was the ultra-hot weather this summer that was more conducive to air conditioning than afternoon walks.  I’m not quite sure, but whatever it is I’m ready for fall. And in […]

Brown Sugar Cupcakes with Cinnamon Ginger Buttercream and Ginger Cookie Pecan Brittle

Sometimes it is easy to get in a rut. A cookie rut. An exercise rut. A wearing the same $12 gap t-shirt every day rut. We get a little comfortable with the usual. Cookies are easy and I’ve gotten great at them. I know what ingredients make the best dough, what amount of refrigeration time […]

Apple Cinnamon Crumb Cake

Moist, flavorful cake full of apple chunks topped with a thick layer of buttery crumb topping.  The perfect breakfast or brunch treat! Every time I think I can predict the ebbs and flows of my new business I’m absolutely wrong.  But you know what, I’ve never been so happy to be wrong. I really thought that as soon as I got all […]

Chewy Gooey Cinnamon Toffee Blondies {Guest Post}

Sorry, guys.  I tried to be nice but I just couldn’t keep these from you any longer.  I know, you are barely a week into your resolutions and trying to stay strong, but put down your carrot stick, break out your whisk (no mixer required), and make a batch of these.  Your mouth will immediately […]

Rugelach Three Ways 11

Rugelach, Three Ways

I decided to get a little crazy with my last holiday cookie.  Rugelach is a traditional Jewish dessert, perfect for Channukah.  However, I’m pretty sure that these would be welcome on any Christmas table as well. So instead of making a traditional version of rugelach, I took the basic cream cheese dough and added a […]

Lighter Carrot Snack Cake with Cream Cheese Icing

Ok, I’m going to be honest.  I’m posting a recipe for carrot cake and I don’t even like carrot cake. You see, I really thought I did.  Moist cake slathered in cream cheese icing, how could it be bad?  Well, of course my version that I thought I would like is void of raisins, walnuts […]

Caramel Apple Cake Trifle 1_1

Caramel Apple Cake Trifle and Giveaway!

I don’t know about you, but I am swimming in leftovers.  The thing is, I can’t decide if it is a good or bad thing.  I have plenty of food to get us through the next few days.  But really, how much turkey can one person eat?  If only I could get sick of cookies […]

Cinnamon & Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Pie Cookies

Things have been crazy around here lately.  I know I say this a lot, but after the busy summer, things never really slowed down. There has been a ton of weekend travelling, apartment hunting, working, baking, blogging, and I’ve even been interning with Hot Blondies a few times a week as well.  My days have […]
