Dental Training
Hi, I’m here to pick up a cake? It’s the “Happy Birthday Brittany” one. Ah, no, see, that second “Birthday” should be “Brittany.”    No no, this has Brittany twice. I need “Happy Birthday” on it. Ok, now you’ve just combined them into one word. There shou [...]

Strawberry Pie

Thumbnail for 9646
This fresh strawberry pie sits on my favorite pie crust, is held together with a delicious homemade glaze, and adorned with the best whipped cream. A perfect summer dessert! Anyone who hails from Pittsburgh most likely holds strawberry pie very close to their heart. Our hometown diner chain has sold strawberry pies for as long as I can rememb [...]

Salted Dark Chocolate Granola

Thumbnail for 9644
Salted Dark Chocolate Granola is a deliciously crunchy ice cream topping, a rich addition to your morning yogurt, or just a good chocolate snack for your afternoon pick-me-up. I really love granola but until recently I only thought of it as breakfast food. I might occasionally pull out my Chunky Tropical Granola recipe for a snack, but more [...]

These Bakers REALLY Hate Drawing

These Bakers REALLY Hate Drawing
Tracee asked her baker to write “Good Luck at Regionals” and then add a volleyball. Which, technically, is exactly what the baker did: ::facepalm:: (Anyone else wonder what would have happened if they’d had an actual volleyball in the bakery? Because these are the mental images that bring me joy.)   Jordan just wanted [...]

The Weekend Dish: 4/15/2017

Thumbnail for 9637
Happy holiday weekend to you! Are you dying Easter eggs, hunting for Easter eggs, making deviled eggs or engaging in other egg-related activities today? We’ll be dying them here at our house, and I’ll be prepping desserts for tomorrow! I’m planning a Boston cream pie (new recipe!) and a fresh strawberry pie. I’m also m [...]

The Great Easter Fleecing (aka, Better Run, Buns)
Oh, how the Easter tables have turned, sweet cheeks. That’s right, while you bunnies were off terrorizing chicks, someone bigger and badder moved to the top of the bakery chain.   So now it’s YOUR turn to face eggs-termination. Not to mention more of my Easter puns.   PREPARE… …for the LAMB-ENTATION. MWAH [...]

Sausage Cheese Balls

Sausage Cheese Balls are a brunch classic for Easter or even Christmas. I’ve made them special with the extra crunch from pecans, and spicy with jalapeño flavor. This is post is sponsored recipe development on behalf of Fisher Nuts. Thank you for continuing to support the brands that make My Baking Addiction possible. Have you ever made [...]

These Chicks Are TOAST

These Chicks Are TOAST
SHHHHH. Listen. Do you hear that?   The bunnies… are coming.   And they’ve got a name with your bullets on it. (“Isn’t that supposed to be the other way arou…?” “SILENCE!”)   The bunnies will rip you from your shells!   Or smoosh you down INTO them really hard! Whi [...]

Chocolate-Dipped Coconut Macaroons

Thumbnail for 9629
These coconut macaroons are light, chewy, and dipped in chocolate. They’re always a crowd favorite and incredibly easy to make! When I first made coconut macaroons nearly eight years ago, I was very new to cookies that were not of the standard chocolate chip, peanut butter, oatmeal-raisin or Christmas-y variety. As a result, I had to G [...]

Thumbnail for 9627
Paleo vegan chocolate cream pie with an ultra silky chocolate filling and a chocolate cookie / brownie crust! Made without tofu. Prefer a chocolate fudge pie? Serve it cold for a fudgy texture. Thanks to Bob’s Red Mill for making today’s post possible! I am beyond excited to be sharing this recipe with you today. First of all, aft [...]

Not-So-Basic Instructions

Not-So-Basic Instructions
There’s a certain creativity to literal LOLs – a kind of “outside the box” thinking that never fails to impress me. The kind that says, “Oh, you want the words written in purple? THEN THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT I WILL WRITE.” “But not necessarily in that color.” Also, it turns out those are not g [...]

Samoa Cheesecake

Thumbnail for 9622
Samoa Cheesecake starts with a coconut shortbread crust and is topped with whipped cream, toasted coconut, melted chocolate and gooey caramel. Yes, it tastes as good as it sounds. I thought I was going to make it through 2017 without being tempted by Girl Scout Cookies. You see, this girl has a real thing for Samoas, Trefoils, Thin Mints and [...]

This Nicolas Cage Cookie Is A National Treasure
So a bakery made an… interesting… choice for their latest online ad. [head tilt] Huh. That’s Nic Cage? Right. John? You know what to do.         And my personal favorite: John: “You know Ghost Rider doesn’t have his face, right? So this makes no sense?” Me:   Thanks to Barb [...]

Scalloped Potatoes

Thumbnail for 9619
Homemade scalloped potatoes is a classic dish and holiday staple! This easy recipe comes together quickly and is wonderfully rich, creamy and cheesy. Scalloped potatoes are legendary in my family. Back when we would all gather at my grandma’s for Sunday dinner, if a pan of scalloped potatoes showed up on the table, madness ensued. My co [...]

Trace Amounts Of Wreckage

Trace Amounts Of Wreckage
Remember those old drawing contests they used to advertise in the backs of magazines? The ones with a picture of a turtle or a pirate you were supposed to copy? Well, Melissa decided to try that route with her bakery. She gave them this picture of a frog and asked them to copy it:   Aaaand… Ouch. Don’t worry though, bakers; [...]
