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…

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…

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…

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…

Whole Wheat Cinnamon Raisin English Muffins

Whole Wheat Cinnamon Raisin English Muffins

Happy Wednesday everyone! I was going to post a delicious fall-y recipe this week, but it’s not ready yet. Instead you get this slightly fall-y recipe in celebration of the first day of fall tomorrow. I don’t know about you, but I plan to make my pumpkin chocolate chip cookies tomorrow, as per tradition. I’m very excited about it (I’m going to update the pictures tomorrow as well!). Today, thought, I’m excited to share this recipe for whole wheat cinnamon raisin english muffins. My dietitian keeps bugging me about eating…

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…

Chocolate Blueberry Cookies

Chocolate Blueberry Cookies

As berry season winds to a close – and pumpkin, apple, pear, cinnamon, nutmeg season starts to creep up on us, I thought I’d post one last farmer’s market berry recipe. I actually made chocolate blueberry cookies about two months ago but I’ve been hoarding the recipe. But I’m very excited to share them now. These remind me of those brookside chocolate covered blueberry things, which if I’m perfectly honest are a weakness of mine and once a bag is opened I’ll eat the whole thing in one go. These cookies…
