Baileys Twinkies

Baileys Twinkies

So the other day, someone brought Twinkies into the office and someone suggested that I make Baileys Twinkies. So here we are. I will say, it took a long time to develop this recipe and I’ve basically been covered in chocolate for two weeks straight, so despite the fact that these really are delicious, this post may not be super enthusiastic about how delicious these are. I swear they are delicious, and despite having a lot of steps, they come together fairly quickly. Don’t be intimidated by them. If you’re…

May Stitch Fix Review

May Stitch Fix Review

Happy May! I got this may stitch fix box just a few days after my birthday so I was really excited for my “birthday fix”. It’s been weirdly hot here so I made sure to ask my stylist for summer stuff.

You fill out a style profile, pin some things on pinterest, and get a box full of amazing clothes sent right to your door – once every 2-3 weeks, once…

Double Chocolate Banana Cookies

Double Chocolate Banana Cookies

My favorite flavor combination in the world is chocolate and bananas. Chocolate banana smoothie? Yes. Chocolate banana ice cream? Bring it on. Chocolate banana cake? Give me a fork. I love it. So, with three overripe bananas in my freezer, I decided to make some chocolate banana cookies. I don’t know if you know this about banana, but it can do some weird things to your recipes – primarily making cookies more bready/muffiny. And that’s no good for cookies. A bready, muffiny cookie is just not what I’m looking for….

White Russian Parfait Shots

White Russian Parfait Shots

A White Russian is my mother’s drink of choice and since Sunday was mother’s day, I wanted to make something inspired by her. So I made white russian parfait shots! Don’t be fooled by the picture – you absolutely do not want to eat a whole mason jar’s worth, because they’re super rich. These are perfect to serve up in shot glasses at a party/bachelorette part/wedding/a college party/you know, basically whenever. They really do pack a punch. These have three layers, a Coffee Liqueur cheesecake mousse, a white russian pudding, topped…

Baked Margarita Donuts

Baked Margarita Donuts

It’s May! Which means Cinco de Mayo is coming up! Cinco de Mayo to me basically means my birthday’s in two days! But for the rest of the USA it basically means Margaritas. Two years ago I made some delicious Margarita Cupcakes, but this year I wanted to try something different, and I’ve had some Donut Pans sitting around for a while – so I decided to make some baked margarita donuts! Memphis has this thing with donuts. We have 2 of the best donut establishments ever. Gibson’s donuts, which Alton Brown loves,…

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…
