Pistachio Scones

Pistachio Scones

Hi there everyone! It’s been a long while. As I mentioned in my banana bread post, I’ve been dealing with some medical stuff and December was the tipping point where I had to go get some real help. But I’m back, healthy and ready to get baking again! So for my welcome back recipe, I made some amazing Pistachio Scones. Pistachio Scones with a delicious, delicious almond glaze. Scones are 100% my favorite thing to bake. They’re so easy but they seem so much classier and more impressive than a…

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…

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…

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…

Smores Scones

Smores Scones

It’s September which means for some, cooler camping season has started. Which means smores! I never camped as a kid, but fall meant bonfires and bonfires meant smores. So I whipped together some smore scones to fill my life with smore goodness without the outdoor bugs. My boyfriend actually loves camping and will be making me camp soon, so out into the world of bugs I go. I’m really excited about it though. Four days cut off from work emails and the internet and computers. It’ll be a good change…

Raspberry Chocolate Chip Bread

Raspberry Chocolate Chip Bread

I went down to Florida on for 4th of July weekend to visit my mom, and while I was there I baked. I baked blueberry bread then I made this raspberry chocolate chip bread. I love chocolate raspberry. Love it. It’s one of my favorite flavors in the world.  I love it more than I love chocolate banana and everyone knows how much I love chocolate banana. This chocolate raspberry bread is the perfect marriage of chocolate and raspberry. It’s super moist due to the brown sugar, and the raspberries bring…

Overnight Peach Cinnamon Rolls

Overnight Peach Cinnamon Rolls

So I keep buying peaches at the farmer’s market. So we have so many peaches. And my boyfriend has basically said “we can’t eat them all bake with them please”. So I did! So your how to use your peaches before they grow mold recipe is: peach cinnamon rolls. Man, like I said last week, cinnamon peach is an amazing combination. I just love it so much. And who doesn’t love cinnamon rolls? Honestly, the peach really just takes this to the next level. When you leave the rolls in the…

Blueberry Lemon Lime Mint Scones

Blueberry Lemon Lime Mint Scones

Remember in my Mimosa Scones post when I said I actually hate scones, because I find them bready and dry and blah? And that those mimosa scones were a total exception because they were fruity and moist and crumbly and delicious? Well these blueberry lemon lime mint scones follow suit. I know, I know, that name is a mouthful. I got the inspiration for them from this blueberry smash cocktail. Sorry booze hounds, there’s no alcohol in this recipe, but it’s packed full of flavor. The lime, lemon and blueberry…

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….
