Swirled Whole Wheat Brioche Rolls

Swirled Whole Wheat Brioche Rolls

Honestly, my favorite thing in the world to make now is brioche, ever since I made that raspberry jam swirled brioche a few months ago.I know it’s kind of time consuming but it’s just delicious. Delicious and I think watching the bread churn in the stand mixer for 30 minutes is kind of relaxing. Maybe that’s just me though. But this time I wanted to make this brioche SLIGHTLY healthier (it’s not actually healthy, it’s like 100% butter), so I made whole wheat brioche rolls. These little guys are so…

Lemon Blueberry Bread

Lemon Blueberry Bread

Berry season continues! Seriously, how great is berry season? Honestly, for the last couple years I haven’t been baking much in spring/berry season because I have spring time SAD (it’s a real thing! It’s not just winter), and I lose all motivation. But not this year. This year I’m a berry baking fiend. So I bring you this super easy Lemon Blueberry Bread in honor of blueberry season. One of the partners at my agency told me a story about how someone he’s related to worked as a blueberry picker….

Blackberry Bramble Cake (Blackberry, Lemon and Gin Cake)

Blackberry Bramble Cake (Blackberry, Lemon and Gin Cake)

A Blackberry Bramble is such a refreshing summer drink. It’s made with blackberries, lemon and gin and is light, refreshing, fruity and delicious. And given the surplus of blackberries I currently had from the farmer’s market, I thought why not bake this into a delicious summer take on a rum cake, a blackberry bramble cake. As a base I used Sweet Pea’s Kitchen‘s rum cake recipe and got rid of the rum, instead using gin, adding lemon zest, lemon juice and mashed blackberries, then folding in chopped blackberries and changing…

Blackberry Bagels

Blackberry Bagels

So, Memphis has a lot of donut places, a lot of stand alone donut shops. Back in Michigan, we had that with bagel shops. There was one shop by us that my family basically kept in business, because we were there multiple times a week. When we all moved away it went out of business and now we’re all incredibly sad when we go back home. But I love bagels, so this week, I made some blackberry bagels. This is in honor of blackberry season. Seriously, our farmer’s market is…

Chocolate Cherry Oatmeal Cookies

Chocolate Cherry Oatmeal Cookies

Cherry season continues! This time I took one out of the book of my favorite store in Michigan: Cherry Republic. They make these delicious “boomchunka” cookies. They’re oatmeal cookies with dried cherries and chocolate chunks. I happened to get a package of dried cherries mailed to me for my birthday so I wanted to replicate them in the form of these chocolate cherry oatmeal cookies. These turned out deliciously. Also hearty. The ratio of oats to flour is 2:1 so they’re oaty, chocolatey, and cherry-y. They’re deliciously chewy, not super…

Chocolate Cherry Banana Muffins

Chocolate Cherry Banana Muffins

So sometimes it’s cherry season and you want just to make like, a super fruity, flavorful, but really really easy muffin. That’s this. These chocolate cherry banana muffins are packed full of fruit. Plus, you make them in one bowl. Basically just mix everything in a bowl, put in muffin tray and bake. These are honestly surprisingly chocolatey. I was going for a subtle chocolate when I was making it, but I’m not going to fight what the chocolate wants to be (if you do though just take out 2…

Chocolate Chip Banana Cookies – with the perfect hint of cinnamon

Chocolate Chip Banana Cookies – with the perfect hint of cinnamon

These look just like normal chocolate chip cookies don’t they? They are so much more than that. As I mentioned in my last banana cookie post, baking with bananas is a challenge. I actually ended up coming up with these chocolate chip banana cookies while I was working on that double chocolate banana recipe, because I just wasn’t sure they were going to come together and I wanted a back up. And I may like these a little more. I love cinnamon. I love cinnamon and banana. I love cinnamon…

Stuffed Beer Cheese Pretzel Bites

Stuffed Beer Cheese Pretzel Bites

Yesterday, everyone in the office brought in like, every left over sweet from memorial day parties. So after the 3rd “there’s a cake in the kitchen” email, I realized I needed to make something nice and savory for tea time today. I’ve been wanting to make these stuffed beer cheese pretzel bites for a while, because love love love pretzels. And really what’s better than a beer pretzel stuffed with beer cheese? Tasty actually made some of these recently. Of course they’re not beer pretzels, but they’re an easier, faster…
