Banana Cupcakes

Banana Cupcakes

This past week I was asked on two separate occasions by two different people what recipes I have that include banana. While most people use up their overly ripe bananas by making bread or muffins, neither of those baked goods are in my go-to wheelhouse so I instead wanted to come up with a few [...]

Spice Cupcakes

Spice Cupcakes

Well folks, I'm back! In June I announced on my Instagram that I was starting a hiatus from baking/blogging after we brought home an adorable and energetic little pug puppy named Boyd. As expected, life has been hectic the last few months adjusting to life with a puppy and I've had little time to bake in the [...]

Ah, the beauty of brownies; this classic dessert, when done right, becomes an open door of possibilities able to please any and all personal taste preferences. If you're just tuning in now, this is brownie week on the blog and that means I'm sharing a number of different ways to spruce up a plain old [...]

I'm no longer traveling to Texas each month for work, so I'm missing an escape to [...]

Oatmeal Cream Pies

Very Berry Cupcakes

Summer came (literally) overnight to Seattle, and it's causing me to go over-the-top in a craze for all my favorite warm weather things. Not only is the sun out and temps are up, but the berries are in season, corn on the cob is sweet, and markets are thriving with locally-made everything to enjoy. This [...]

Lemon Cupcakes

Lemon Cupcakes

I'm back! The last few weeks have been hectic to say the least and have unfortunately kept me away from my favorite hobby: baking! Between preparing to change jobs in June, bachelorette weekend festivities for my bestie, and SIFF starting (the Seattle International Film Festival, remember my Reese’s Pieces PB Cookies recipe?), I haven't had much time [...]
