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

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…

Caramel Brownies

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…

Mounds Brownies

As brownie week continues, I’m pulling inspiration from some of my favorite candies to create easy yet unique recipes. It’s not often that you see coconut on a brownie, but why not?! There’s a reason why Mounds and Almond Joy bars are so popular – chocolate and coconut is a match made in heaven! That…

Ultimate Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies

It’s a new week, and that means new treats! Last week’s theme of cream-filled desserts was a hit, and I want to keep that positive energy going by introducing a new theme for the new week. Without further ado, this week’s theme is…. Brownie Mania!! Brownies are versatile and universally enjoyed, so they make the…

Bacon & Egg Brunch Cups

If you’ve been visiting this blog for awhile now, you’ve probably started to pick up on some of my favorite things (cookies, peanut butter, comfort food, etc.) and should know by now that I am a HUGE fan of breakfast foods, especially all variations of bacon & eggs. Bacon & Egg Brunch Cups (while delicious…

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Whoopie Pies

The work week may be wrapping up, but I’m not quite done with my theme of all things cream-filled. Earlier this week, I posted a recipe for Mini Chocolate Whoopie Pies and the response was fantastic, not only from readers but also from my friends and coworkers who are the happy recipients of my creations. The response…

Swiss Steak

For whatever reason, Seattle just can’t figure out if it wants summer to stick around this year. After a few gloriously beautiful weeks, temps have dropped, clouds have returned and there’s a tinge of wetness back in the air. I’m no longer traveling to Texas each month for work, so I’m missing an escape to…

Mini Chocolate Whoopie Pies

As hinted in my post earlier this week (Haven’t read it yet? Check it out: Oatmeal Cream Pies) I’m continuing my theme of cream-filled desserts with one of my all-time favorites: Whoopie pies. Whoopie pies are one of the many Pennsylvania sweet treats I hold near and dear to my heart, but they are largely unheard…

Oatmeal Cream Pies

After wrapping up my cupcake craze (for now, at least) with my Very Berry Cupcakes, I’ve moved on to a new theme for this week: all things cream-filled! My original plan was to make a batch of whoopie pies this weekend (spoiler, I did – you’ll see them later this week!), but I also had a…

Mom’s Marinated Grilled Chicken

It’s taken me awhile to share this marinade recipe, but mostly because the weather in Seattle has been so spotty and my grilling days are numbered due to excessive rain. Also a small part of me has kept this one close to the vest because it’s unique to my family and genuinely the best way…
