Blueberry Cobbler Ice Cream (No-Churn)

I bought a ticket on the no-churn ice cream train and let me tell you, I am here to stay. Not only is this method a huge bang for your buck but more importantly, you are in charge of the flavors. I know we all have our favorites (Chunky Monkey, Häagen-Dazs Coffee, Buckeye Fever from…

Easy Lemon Poppyseed Glaze

Okay so I feel like it is against the rules for me to be a baking blogger and hate frosting cakes. When I was younger I would make a cake for anyone’s and everyone’s birthday. I would day dream of what they would look like, the layers, the piping, the perfectly smooth icing. But it…

Blueberry Cobbler

A seasonal dessert is bittersweet. You crave it in December but know you have to wait till July. Kind of like when you want to wear that cute new sweater but it’s still early September and you know it deserves a better debut than sweating in it all day. Waiting all year for the month…

Blueberry Shortcake Bars

These bars are proving once again that the simplest bakes with the fewest ingredients are usually the tastiest bakes. Blueberry Shortcake Bars are the sibling to one of my favorites on my blog- Strawberry Rhubarb Shortcake– and they might give it a run for its money. This recipe is blueberry cobbler in bar form- no…

Lemon & Thyme Shortbread

The more I bake with lemon the more I am convinced that it might be better than chocolate. I almost erased that sentence as I wrote it but I think it’s true. Well for now. Wait until I am writing about a brownie. My herb garden-more like my herb corner- on my apartment balcony is…

Raspberry Ricotta Cake

If I had a signature bake, this would be it. It has been a staple for who knows how long now and it is a fit for any occasion or season. I wish I could take credit for it’s invention but it all goes to Bon Appétit. May I present, the Raspberry Ricotta Cake. This…

Mini Strawberry Rhubarb Galettes

Strawberry. Rhubarb. Flaky, flaky buttery crust. Oh and…they are personal sized. These will impress at a dinner party for four. Or at 10 a.m. with your coffee. Something about a pie you don’t have to slice…really makes my day. Galettes look gorgeous but they are so simple. They also have a more equal crust to…

Strawberry Rhubarb Shortcake

I am 99 percent sure this recipe has changed my life. I withhold the final one percent at the risk of being dramatic. I am, however, completely sure that I will be making this recipe, and flavor variations, very often for a very long time. Found in A Treasury of New Zealand Baking by Lauraine Jacobs, this Strawberry…

French Toast

Now that I am technically grown up- ya know, I do my own taxes, my knees pop and all I want to do is nap- I have realized what true love looks like. It looks like a mom cooking her two children french toast on a school day at 6:30 a.m. because they begged her…

Flour Tortillas

My love for Mexican food runs deep. If I am having a bad day, J’s go-to solution is to take me somewhere where homemade beans and tortillas are cooking in the back kitchen and server puts warm tortilla chips on the table before I have even ordered my drink. By the end of the meal…
