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…

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…

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…

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…

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

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…

Peach Crumble Cake

Not cobbler or crumble, but also not quite a cake. Putting a finger on exactly how to classify this dessert has eluded me long enough that I made an executive decision to call it a “crumble cake” and end the debate. I am a texture eater. While that doesn’t influence what foods I will/won’t eat, I…

Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes

Life without cheesecake sounds bleak indeed. I honestly believe I could eat cheesecake every single day of my life, but my better judgement gets the best of me and I remember I am not immune to the results of insane caloric intake, so I try to find creative ways to keep the cheesecake coming without…
