Pineapple Cardamom Coffee Cake with Coconut Crumb Topping

For years I was the girl who only ordered New York-style coffee cake at coffee shops.

Once I saw that mile-high topping on display, I wouldn’t even waste a passing glance at anything else. (more…)

Vanilla Pineapple Popsicles

A while ago when my friend brought me back wood apples from Sri Lanka, she also brought me another sweet treat: pineapple!

If you’ve never had Sri Lankan pineapple, it is surprisingly quite different from Hawaiian pineapple. Fresh, ripe Sri Lankan pineapple is sweeter and has a deeper pineapple flavor than Hawaiian pineapple. Sri Lankan pineapple still has the pleasant sweet/sour taste that Hawaiian pineapple has, but with less of a tart tang and more of a sweet, natural concentrated pineapple flavor. (more…)

Double Dark Chocolate Muffins with Almonds and White Chocolate Drizzle

A while ago, a friend and I were at Starbucks and she ordered a chocolate muffin. Now, I admit that I’ve sampled a lot of baked goods that Starbucks has to offer, but their chocolate muffins – never! I was intrigued and it looked good, but I resisted ordering it.

Loaded Kit Kat Peanut Butter Brownies

While I was back home last holiday season and Mike was here in Kuwait, he took the opportunity to load up on a few choice junk food items that usually don’t make their way into our cart when he and I shop together.

I came back to a kitchen fully stocked with chips, soda, and candy bars by the case. (Oh my God, it was a nightmare. I can’t imagine what he was thinking.) (more…)

Lemon-Vanilla Almond Cake {Paleo}

When I was younger, I hated any and all lemon-flavored desserts with a passion. Lemon bars, lemon meltaway cookies, and even lemon meringue pie were all on my list.

(But oddly enough, I was a big fan of super sour lemon-flavored WarHeads candy – does anyone else remember those? Incidentally, I consider this proof positive that there is no rhyme or reason to kids’ tastes.) (more…)
