Orange Pomegranate Muffins

Orange Pomegranate Muffins

Late post again because I’m horribly unreliable. Actually I was sick all week so cut me a little slack on this one. Unless you’re mad I kept these from you for this long. Orange Pomegranate Muffins. These things are excellent. I made them during my muffin baking craze and they came together so quickly and are so delicious. There’s lovely hints of citrus. Delicious bursts of pomegranate. And it’s all contained in a delicious, moist, not too sweat muffin. And who doesn’t love muffins? These are a perfect easy breakfast…

Pumpkin Ice Cream

Pumpkin Ice Cream

Happy December everyone! Thanksgiving is over, which is a total bummer because I love everything about Thanksgiving. The food, the people, the zero need to stress and get together with family. Every year we hold a friendsgiving for the other “orphans” without a family in the city and every year it’s just a great time with too much food and good people. It seems so counterintuitive that I love Thanksgiving so much, but feeding others brings me joy and Thanksgiving is great for that! This pumpkin ice cream for example,…

Apple Cider Muffins

Apple Cider Muffins

Hi there everyone. Sorry for my scattered posts recently and Happy Almost Thanksgiving! I somehow managed to build a huge back log of recipes even with the scattered posting schedule, so a recipe a week is back at it (and maybe more than one recipe a week here and there.) This week – Apple cider muffins. Fall is in full swing down here in Memphis and I still have some apples from my trip up to Michigan. How you may ask? Well because they were in a bag in the fridge…

Quince Butter

Quince Butter

Sometimes I get stuck in a rut, where I don’t find anything inspiring and the idea of baking is just totally unappealing. I’ve been stuck in that the last few weeks, and then my dietitian asked me to reflect on my motivations for baking and I started to think “maybe baking isn’t actually healthy for me like I think…” But then along came Quince. What is a Quince? Apparently it’s a fruit that’s totally spongey, hard and gross to eat raw, but when cooked is totally amazing. Also apparently it’s…

Milky Way Martini Cupcakes

Milky Way Martini Cupcakes

Happy Halloween! It’s the time of year where everyone has a bunch of candy laying around. Either from over preparing for trick-or-treaters, kids who went trick-or-treating, or you just plan to partake in all the post halloween candy sales that’ll be happening tomorrow. Candy abounds. These milky way martini cupcakes not only utilize that candy, but they give you a perfect way to unwind post halloween (by taking a shot of a milky way martini) These cupcakes aren’t meant for kids, since they’re pretty alcoholic. There’s a cup of alcohol…

Deliciously Easy Pumpkin Seeds 4 Ways

Deliciously Easy Pumpkin Seeds 4 Ways

Halloween is basically the best time of the year, because it’s the most fall of all the holidays (some may say, but what about Thanksgiving??? But I feel like Halloween is the celebration of fall while Thanksgiving is a celebration of the end of fall). This weekend, for the first time in years, we decided to carve pumpkins. Which of course means plenty of pumpkin seeds. Carving pumpkins was so much fun! and when we were finished we were left with just a mound of pumpkin guts. So naturally I spent…

Honey Apple Ice Cream

Honey Apple Ice Cream

Hi Everyone! Sorry for not posting the last two weeks, I had a challenging week and then I went and hiked the buffalo river trail and was without internet/computers/technology for 4 days. So despite having this recipe laying around for a couple of weeks, I’m just getting around to posting it for you, and I’m sorry about that because this honey apple ice cream is delicious. I know the weather is cooling down and you may not be wanting ice cream right now, but you want this ice cream. Seriously, make this…

Baking Basics Course

Baking Basics Course

Hi there everyone! About a month ago Skillshare contacted me and told me they just started a Culinary section on their site, and asked if I would be interested in making a class. If you don’t know what Skillshare is, it’s basically “a learning community for creators.” So creators (baker me) will make a short, 10-25 minute class, split up into 1-5 minute videos and work through a specific task to help you learn something. My class is 14 minutes of 30 second – 2 minute long videos, going through…

Banana Bread (Vegan, whole-wheat)

Banana Bread (Vegan, whole-wheat)

As I write this, I’m fairly sure no one’s ever going to read this. Part of me hopes that I can keep it to myself, and that the problems will go away. That I’ll wake up in the morning, hit delete, post about honey apple ice cream and move on with my day. People have been talking more and more openly about their experiences with depression and anxiety and honestly. I’m so grateful for their stories and for their help in de-stigmatizing these mental disorders… making it ok to go…
