#BundtBakers: Easy Orange Bundt Cake

September’s theme for #BundtBakers was to make a Bundt cake that included a healthy cheat, sneak or substitute, meaning you could use applesauce or bananas for oil like I did in last month’s Jewish Apple Cake, or use a flour like coconut or almond. #BundtBakers is a group of Bundt […]

Strawberry Angel Food Cake Kebabs

Strawberries and angel food cake are two of my favorite things. The second that strawberries appear on the shelves in the grocery store, I’m buying them weekly right up until they disappear from the shelves with the disappointing reminder that spring and summer have passed and we’re on our way […]

Stone Fruit Eton Mess

Over the summer I was reading book about a woman who was visiting a fictional town based off Ocracoke Island in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. In the story, the woman visits a bakery and the bakery owner has all of these delicious desserts and always seems to know […]

Honeydew Peach Green Smoothie

Are you sick of fruit smoothies yet? Think about how I felt…I had to eat all of them in one week! Actually, it wasn’t that bad. It made for quite the varied breakfast each morning. This was the morning that I made my cats very angry however.  See, for a […]

SRC: Coconut Pineapple Mini Muffins

For this month’s Secret Recipe Club I was assigned to Secrets from the Cookie Princess. Colleen is the face behind the words of her blog and…girlfriend likes to bake. Seriously. If you check out her about me section, one of the first thing she tells you is that she baked […]

Frozen Wine Soaked Sugared Grapes

I saw an image on Pinterest for frozen grapes coated in sugar. Looking into it a bit further, I found that they were first soaked in wine. How simple. How genius! My family has a bit of a thing with soaking ingredients in alcohol. For my bridal shower my aunt […]

What’s Baking: Irish Trifle

* You know how for the most part, I mainly just talk about food? Of course there are stories related to the recipes but other than a quick update on what is going on in my life during the weekly menu post, I really don’t share all that much about […]

Fruit and Brownie Kebabs

I know it’s too late for you to make these for the Fourth of July, but they’re just patriotic enough that you could serve them for Labor Day, hang on to them until the next Memorial day, or because they just scream all of the best things about summer, make […]

Improv Challenge: Lemon Lime Smoothie

At first I wasn’t sure if I could participate in this month’s improv challenge while doing the Whole30. The ingredients for this month are lemon and lime and I had a hard time thinking of anything other than baked goods. Which, I’ll fully admit, I miss. Especially when I’m having […]

Recipe Remake: from the SRC: Fruited Bran Muffins

Many many moons ago I first made this recipe for the Secret Recipe Club. While I have not adapted the recipe, I wanted to update the photo because these muffins are severely lacking the attention that they deserve.  When you want a muffin but want to eat healthy, you want […]
