Cinnamon Walnut Blondies (whole grain...

Thumbnail for 5538
These 100% whole grain walnut blondies are a bit gooey, chewy and full of cinnamon! With a dairy-free option. I shared the link to my upside down apple honey cake in a recipe sharing group on Facebook and just got this comment (from someone who doesn’t follow me): “Sounds great, but I got bored getting to the real recipe.” L [...]

Punctuation Rule's

Thumbnail for 5536
Today is National Punctuation Day, so I thought it’d be good to go over the five basic;… “punctuation” rules. Bakers, pay attention.   Rule #1: Sometimes periods, question marks, and exclamation points are important.   And they usually go at the end of the sentence. (But what if it’s not mine?) &n [...]

The Ultimate Pumpkin Recipe Roundup

Thumbnail for 5534
A roundup of my favorite pumpkin recipes including breakfast, savory recipes, desserts, and even some dog treats! Today is the official, by-the-books first day of fall. The air here has changed considerably over the last few days – it’s more crisp, less heavy, and when you step outside there is no denying that fall has arrived, ev [...]

Figure It Out

Thumbnail for 5532
Wrecky minion Jennifer T. is no dummy; she knows that sometimes you just can’t trust a bakery to decorate your kid’s birthday cake properly. So this year, Jennifer asked the decorator to not even try. “Please just leave room so I can add my own toy figures,” she asked, confident that this plan would FINALLY foil the wr [...]

This conversation is sponsored by Silk. The opinions and text are all mine. This Tropical Hummus makes a great snack for game day! It also makes a great filling for wraps! #MeatlessMondayNight #ad

Very Sweet Vegas

Thumbnail for 5526
A few weeks ago I went on a super fun girls trip to Las Vegas planned by my sweet blogging friend Jenny of Picky Palate.  I loved hanging out with these girls … especially since they love sweets as much as I do. And, we had a blast trying as many treats in three days as we could. L to R: Shelly of Cookies and Cups, Kristan of Confessions of a [...]

With This Wreck, I Thee Wed

Thumbnail for 5524
It seems I never fail to underestimate your insatiable desire for wedding wreckage. And sprinkles. You guys always want sprinkles. Two birds? Meet your stone: Sha-POW!   Not crumby enough for you? Try this: Because naked wedding cakes have more Funfetti.   “Ooh, you guys, I’ve got it! Ok, picture this: we have the happ [...]

Cheesy Pepperoni Bites

Thumbnail for 5522
I receive quite a bit of email every day, and by far, the best, best, BEST emails are the ones from readers that want to pass along recipes they think I might like. These are absolute gems, and I am absolutely convinced that you all know me really, really well just based on the recipes that you send my way I decided to make these on Sunday t [...]

Upside Down Apple Honey Cake (gluten-...

Thumbnail for 5520
Today’s apple cake isn’t exactly international but it is maybe a little multicultural! I’ve seen a few recipes for Jewish apple cakes and was intrigued. They seem to be traditionally made in a tube pan, which I don’t have, and I just made an apple bundt cake, so I thought I’d go with something smaller. They also [...]

Apple Turnovers (From Scratch!)

Thumbnail for 5518
These apple turnovers are made completely from scratch with a homemade puff pastry and a simple apple filling. Let’s talk apple turnovers! Truth be told, I’m not sure that I’ve ever eaten a fresh-baked apple turnover! Which is a crying shame, because now that I’m made them, I can’t believe that I’ve only e [...]

Tell Me What You Want, What You Liter...

Thumbnail for 5516
They asked for a big number 8. They got it.   And this one was to be ready by Wednesday: (Think if they’d had ’til Friday they could have used a decorator who WASN’T colorblind?) (Naaaah.)   Remember last week’s “Happy Birthday in Chinese” snafu? Well, for this next one they asked a French bak [...]

Sunday Sweets Goes Art Deco… Ag...

Thumbnail for 5512
From Flapper dresses to Big Band jazz to Art Deco architecture, nothing says “style” quite like the Roaring Twenties. Look at that gilded perfection! LOOK AT IT.   And check out this sweet flapper girl! Love that feathered headband topper.   This one reminds me of delicate chandelier earrings:   And this one, sle [...]

Apple Crumb Tart (gluten-free, whole ...

Thumbnail for 5510
This apple crumb tart is topped with a hefty amount of streusel and has gluten-free and whole grain options. I almost didn’t post this tart just because it seemed like the recipe would have been more suitable for a deep dish pan. The streusel is piled well over the pan’s rim and I thought cutting it may be disastrous. But once coo [...]

The Weekend Dish: 9/19/2015

Thumbnail for 5508
Happy weekend! I hope you had a great week and that this weekend is treating you well so far. I’m looking forward to another rainy Saturday – it’s so cozy and makes spending all day curled up in front of the TV feel a-ok. Maybe I’ll whip up some of my favorite chocolate chip cookies – I’m way overdue to sto [...]

Some of my favorite new submissions this week.   They asked for Happy Birthday, with a drawing of a sun. That’s some stellar work.   Remember the days of “paper or plastic?” Now we just have to guess which it is: Either way, you’re getting plenty of fiber! (To be washed down with bitter, bitter tears.)
