Cherry-Almond Brown Butter Blondies with White and Dark Chocolate Chips 1

Let’s be real here; I’m just not that into football. To me, the only legitimate reason I can think of to attend a Super Bowl party would be for the food. (Ok, and maybe for the halftime show and/or commercials.)

Gluten-Free Coconut Almond Flour Cake {Inspired by Middle Eastern Cake Harissa}

Gluten-Free Coconut Almond Flour Cake {Inspired by Middle Eastern Cake Harissa} 1

A dense, moist, and sticky sweet Gluten-Free Coconut Almond Flour Cake, inspired by the Middle Eastern Cake Harissa. I hope you had a great weekend! If it snowed where you live, I hope you stayed safe and warm and had the chance to enjoy the snow…or at least bake something delicious! Mike and I are in DC and we’ve been hunkered down since Friday enjoying the snow; this weekend we had our second snowfall, which was actually a doozy: winter storm Jonas! Being from Buffalo, I am in my element, and although we were starting to go a little stir-crazy by Sunday afternoon, we actually […]...

Gluten-Free Cherry Almond Cake with Rosemary Vanilla Bean Buttercream 1

Gluten-Free Cherry Almond Cake with Rosemary Vanilla Bean Buttercream makes a lovely winter cake that’s fit for a simple wedding, or simply dessert for a family supper. Note that this post is not sponsored in any way, nor is it affiliated with Downton Abbey! It is dedicated to Downton fans, as well as all fans of cake. Does that just about cover everyone? ;) Love in many forms comes and goes, a fact of life that we’ve seen over and over again in Downton Abbey. There’s been a lot of heartbreak on this show; Sybil and Tom Branson, Edith and Michael Gregson, Mary and Matthew, […]...

Eggnog Muffins with Cranberry Filling

Eggnog Muffins with Cranberry Filling 1

This recipe for Eggnog Muffins with Cranberry Filling is a great way to satisfy a sweet tooth when you’re in the mood for something festive! Mike sometimes talks about taking a Christmas vacation to somewhere warm, but I have trouble getting behind that idea. I need cold, preferably snowy weather to feel festive. Growing up in Buffalo, our Christmases were usually white. Not that it was ever a sure thing (because some years we did end up with a mucky brown Christmas!), but it was definitely more likely to be white there than it is here in the DC area....

Vanilla Bean Caramelized Pear Scones with Dark Chocolate Chunks

Vanilla Bean Caramelized Pear Scones with Dark Chocolate Chunks 1

These Vanilla Bean Caramelized Pear Scones with Dark Chocolate Chunks pair the sweet, floral flavor of pear with the complexity of dark chocolate for the perfect special occasion treat that comes together fast! After last year’s infamous Christmas Morning Scones, I knew I wouldn’t get away with not at least attempting to come up with another equally mind-blowing scone recipe. I had nothing particular in mind; no single ingredient I was dying to incorporate and no flavor profile I was trying to build. I let my mind wander, and as it did, my eyes came to rest on the bowl of pears on my counter. […]...

Cranberry-Pistachio Cupcakes

Cranberry-Pistachio Cupcakes 1

These Cranberry-Pistachio Cupcakes are sweetly aromatic and soft-textured; from start-to-finish they’ll be ready in just an hour, and it’s perfect if you want just a small batch of something sweet. This time of year has the tendency to get so busy. With Thanksgiving over, our focus turns to Christmas and all the preparation that goes along with it. But a moment of peace, however brief, is a most welcome retreat in December. Even if it’s just taking an hour to make these cupcakes and then enjoying one with a cup of tea. I can’t think of anything more comforting than the smell of something sweet […]...

A Tale of Two Thanksgiving Pies

Maple Peanut Butter Pumpkin Pie with Maple Peanut Butter Whipped Cream 1

For my Tale of Two Thanksgiving Pies, peanut butter lends an unexpectedly delicious twist to apple and pumpkin pies: Vegan Apple Peanut Butter Pie, and my personal favorite, Maple Peanut Butter Pumpkin Pie with Maple Peanut Butter Whipped Cream! I come bearing pies today, which is a rare occurrence indeed for me. And better yet, they both have a twist (because you probably don’t need another recipe for classic pumpkin or apple pie!)....

Warm-Spiced Pumpkin Yeast Bread

Warm-Spiced Pumpkin Yeast Bread 1

This Warm-Spiced Pumpkin Yeast Bread is slightly sweet, subtly scented of warm spices, and rich in color from pumpkin. And it only requires 30 minutes of hand-on prep time to make! I find that the smell of baking bread is just one of those things that puts people at ease. Maybe it evokes childhood memories or maybe it reminds them just how delicious fresh bread tastes. In any case, I wish I could bottle the smell of fresh baked bread....

Butterbeer Brown Butter Blondies with Toasted Pecans {Inspired by Harry Potter}

Butterbeer Brown Butter Blondies with Toasted Pecans 1

These Butterbeer Brown Butter Blondies with Toasted Pecans basically taste like amped up butter pecan blondies. Their flavor is spot-on and like any good blondie should be, they’re gooey-centered and completely indulgent. What could be a more perfect fall snack for watching Harry Potter? I always wonder what gets a person excited. And I don’t mean regular excited, I mean the kind of excitement that’s palpable. The kind of excited that makes someone’s eyes light up with passion and their voice resonate with happiness....
