Mini Baby Muffin Recipe

I have always had a thing for muffins. I just love them! A muffin was my typical breakfast growing up. I especially enjoy what I call “oaty” muffins, which are just muffins with oats, bran, or some grain goodness. There is a place in my hometown called Honey’s and they have the perfect oat bran […]


Quick and Easy Summer Dinners

Even though our family is busy pretty much all year round, for some reason I always feel busier during the summer – which means that meals and cooking kind of take a back seat some nights! Honestly, I love a good quick and easy meal no matter what the season, but there is just something […]

Tried and True Baking: The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Last weekend, the New York Times front page featured a gem of a recipe that has changed my baking life. I’m only half kidding!

And since this one is just barely honey-sweetened and otherwise made of almond flour and eggs, it’s practically a health food, right? Next, edible flowers, And lastly, party decorations! […]


Pumpkin Muffins with Crumble Topping

Baking with Little Hands: Sugar Cookies

Even though it’s messy, takes longer and sometimes results in slightly imperfect results, one of my favorite ways to spend time on the weekends with my almost-two-year-old is baking! Since he turned one, we’ve made egg-free chocolate cake (eat that batter, little guy!), dozens of chocolate chip cookies and cut-out sugar cookies. That last item […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

I have a decently intense obsession with Smitten Kitchen. Deb is a genius and we actually have similar flavor profiles. She has this recipe for brownie roll out cookies and, while delicious, they are not as brownie like as I would like. Enter her newest brownie cookies!! Decadent, intense, amazing!! And yet! For my family, […]
