Super Simple Strawberry Banana Muffins

Super Simple Strawberry Banana Muffins

I love strawberries. My dad had an amazing vegetable garden growing up so every spring/summer, we’d go out and pick the strawberries and eat them right out of the garden. So, with strawberry season starting, I picked up a basket from the farmers market and decided to make something worthy of those childhood memories. Something simple, fruity, fresh. Simple Strawberry Banana Muffins – mini muffins. These are packed full of fruit and because of that they’re super moist and light. They’re certainly not dense and the banana flavor shines through as…

Raspberry Jam Brioche

Raspberry Jam Brioche

Happy Wednesday everyone! It’s getting warm out and I’m totally ready for berry season. So I bought a bunch of raspberries, made some jam and swirled it into a brioche – a raspberry jam brioche. This brioche is delicious – light, butter, with the sweet raspberry perfectly swirled throughout every bite – making it the perfect breakfast treat for everyone. Also just a heads up, I’ve updated my social links in the sidebar! Plus, I’ve made a cupcakefordinner instagram that’ll be full of process/baking failures/news of new recipes. I swear all…

Chocolate Banana Tarts with Chocolate Stout

Chocolate Banana Tarts with Chocolate Stout

Today I bring you chocolate banana tarts with a twist – they’re made with a chocolate stout. I used this chocolate stout, but you can use whatever one you want. There are even chocolate peanut butter banana ones out there that would be good. Just use one you want to drink! Also, if you have never made a tart before, don’t worry, these are so easy. You just need special little tart tins (or a big one). They have bottoms that you push up to remove the pastry from the case –…

Mimosa Scones

Mimosa Scones

I made a lot of scones last week, to get you guys the perfect, best, most delicious, Mimosa Scones recipe. A lot of time when I think of scones I think of dry, bread-y scones – that’s not what these are. These are moist yet crumbly with a good bite and super flavorful. A prefect brunch treat. I adapted this recipe from two different, delicious, orange scone recipes, one from sprinkle me some sugar, and one from shugary sweets. I needed some scone experts to give me the basics. I took two different…

April Stitch Fix Review

April Stitch Fix Review

Hi everyone! I’ll be posting a really delicious recipe Wednesday for Mimosa Scones! – I honestly did not expect these too turn out so good so I’m excited to share it with you all! – but in the mean time, my April Stitch Fix has arrived and it is fabulously springy. I didn’t get two in March as intended because I went to NYC and had to postpone my last box, but I’m excited for two this month! What is stitch fix? It’s a box of 5 items (clothes, accessories, shoes!),…

Limoncello Lemon Chiffon Pie

Limoncello Lemon Chiffon Pie

Carolyne is back to bring you the final recipe of the Drunken Girl Scout project. And honestly, it looks delicious. To quote her email to me “this pie is stupid good. highly recommended even without the limoncello.” I hope you all enjoy her lemon chiffon pie! Before this recipe, I had never actually tasted a Savannah Smile. Debuting in 2012 to celebrate the Girl Scouts’ 100th anniversary, it’s a crunchy, powder-sugar coated, wedge-shaped cookie that is not at all subtle about its lemon flavoring. Each cookie is like an entire…

Buttered Toffee-tastic Cocktail Cupcakes with Toffee Frosting

Buttered Toffee-tastic Cocktail Cupcakes with Toffee Frosting

Today’s cookie for the Drunken Girl Scout project is toffee-tastic. It’s a butter cookie full of toffee. And fun fact – there’s a cocktail called “Buttered Toffee“, which is absolutely delicious. It’s kahlua, baileys’, and amaretto mixed with half-and-half (half milk, half cream for those of you who don’t have this in your stores). Because it’s a milk based cocktail, I pulled out my good ol’ White Russian Cupcake recipe and modified it to make delicious, moist, crumby, toffee cocktail cupcakes. My boyfriend took a bite into these and exclaimed…

Bourbon Tagalong Tear-Aparts

Bourbon Tagalong Tear-Aparts

Ali’s back to conclude this week of peanut butter here on cupcakes for dinner. I’m sorry peanut butter is often neglected here, but I hope you peanut butter lovers enjoy the two recipes I have for you. I’ll be honest with you. I am not a huge fan of peanut butter. When I grew up, I was the weird kid who wanted tuna sandwiches instead of the peanut butter and jelly of my peers. The smell of it in my teenage years made me nauseous. The first time I was…

Boozy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cream Pies – Grown-up Do-si-dos

Boozy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cream Pies – Grown-up Do-si-dos

Fun fact, I hate peanut butter. I really do. Always have. So when I started this series, I knew there would be a point when I would have to bake with peanut butter. But I didn’t shy away. I did a lot of research and settled on these Boozy Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cream Pies. They’re basically do-si-dos, but with a fireball oatmeal cookie, filled with a peanut butter milk stout mousse. The best thing about this recipe is they’re both delicious on their own. My boyfriend adored the mousse (which…
