Cheddar-Caramel Chicago Mix Cupcakes 1

So, Chicago Mix. You sweet, salty, sultry little vixen, you.

I think you might very well be the one and only trashy snack from the junk food aisle that tempts me.

But you tempt me so badly I avoid that aisle like the plague.

Carrot Cake with Maple Buttercream for Two

When I shared my Valentine’s recipe for Fudgy Dark Chocolate Cookie Sandwiches with Raspberry Buttercream for Two, a friend asked (no, challenged was the word she used ;) ) me to come up with a healthy, yet indulgent carrot cake recipe that serves one or two....

Lemon-Vanilla Almond Cake {Paleo}

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.

Such a bummer....

When I was dreaming up this cake I had a decadent chocolate cake in mind. Something really indulgent…sinful, even. Then I looked in my fridge and found three pretty zucchinis that needed to be used up (even despite making a few zucchini recipes lately, like Roasted Vegetable Crustless Quiche with Basil & Pine Nuts and Cinnamon + Nutmeg Zucchini “Applesauce”). Seeing the zucchini I got an idea and I knew sinful would have to wait....

Tropical Papaya-Coconut Cake

Oh boy is this cake good – a little too good to just have chilling in my fridge on a random weekday. Despite how delicious it is, this cake is actually quite unsightly; it doesn’t rise much and the top is craggy. But as far as looks go, not to worry because all will be well; a craggy top is nothing a little glaze can’t fix....
