Peach & Strawberry Breakfast Braid

It doesn’t happen very often but sometimes I just get bored of eating muffins for breakfast. Its still way too hot to switch to oatmeal and I haven’t been in a granola mood lately. Since I eat breakfast at work, this limits my options quite a bit. I was flipping […]

Peach Streusel Muffins

Although I almost never eat them plain, peaches are one of my favorite fruits. First I absolutely love the color of a peach with its skin removed. The pale orange gradually darkening into a deep mauve-ish color. Then there is the smell of peaches. It just screams ‘SUMMER!’ I could […]

SRC: Chocolate Biscotti

The first time I had biscotti was not long after Tom and I were dating. We were at his parents house and his mom picked it up somewhere. I wasn’t expecting to like it since it just looked like an overcooked and hard sugar cookie but I was pleasantly surprised […]

Blueberry Coconut Muffins

Have you tried coconut water yet? I was never a big coconut person, it was a take-it-or-leave-it flavor for me until one day Tom and I were walking around Costco and they were giving out samples of coconut water. It was only a few days earlier I had overheard someone […]

Granola bars with Bananas, Cranberries and Pecans

Granola has always been one of my go-to meals for breakfast. I love that I can mix it in with yogurt, serve it with warm fruit or make it into bar form. It’s also pretty healthy and keeps you full, so I can’ complain on that front. When I saw […]

Secret Recipe Club: Buttermilk Biscuits

I have to admit, with my limited amount of time to spend in the kitchen due to my college classes, I was a bit hesitant to participate in the October Secret Recipe Swap. I’d glad to say that my need to make new recipes won out against my limited amount […]

Fresh Orange Muffins

Last week I had a recipe that called for one orange. Of course when I went to the grocery store they were out of individual oranges and only had bags of them. I ended up not making the recipe and forgetting to add it to the following week. The bag […]

Secret Recipe Club: Croquembouche

Last month was my first time participating in the Secret Recipe Club. I had a great time going through the recipes on the blog I was assigned to choose one so I knew I definitely wanted to participate again. This month, I the blog I was assigned is Eggs, Cream […]

Prosciutto wrapped Asparagus

Even though I knew that Tom and C won’t eat asparagus and I wasn’t sure if my cousin or her boyfriend would either, I really wanted to make this appetizer. I haven’t had prosciutto in forever! Almost every time I visit my aunt at her beach house in Delaware, she’ll […]

Snickerdoodle Blondies

Yesterday I said that since I don’t have any dinners to blog this week I would probably make a dessert today. I was flipping through my baking binder and this one popped out at me. I love snickerdoodle cookies. They’re light and fluffy and covered in cinnamon and sugar. They […]
