Cranberry Oat Pecan Scones (or Christmas Scones)

Cranberry Oat Pecan Scones (or Christmas Scones)

In my quest to make weekend breakfast more often this year, I’ve returned to making scones more often. This time, I decided to revisit the Cranberry Oat Pecan Scones that I made 8 years ago as my 367th and final recipe of 2010, when I […]

Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Glaze

Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Glaze

I love cinnamon rolls – but only homemade ones. I’ve seen too many very dark cinnamon rolls in bakery cases, ones where I know that even reheating (who wants a cold cinnamon roll?) will not make it worth eating. So I love making them at […]

Alton Brown’s Fruitcake

Alton Brown’s Fruitcake

I started making fruitcake for my extended family for Christmas in 2004 or 2005. I didn’t foist it on them; I only started making it after they told me, unprompted, that they liked fruitcake! I was thrilled to have an excuse to make it. Ever […]

Apple Cider Donut Cake

Apple Cider Donut Cake

My friend Jen loves apples, and knows I love recipes. One day during Fall 2012, she sent me a recipe for an Apple Cider Donut Cake. I looked for a reason to make it all autumn, but lacked either the ingredients or the time. I finally […]

No-Sugar-Added Slow Cooker Apple Butter

One of the foods that I discovered as an adult was apple butter. It’s something I look forward to every fall! I’ve always wanted to make it, but I had a very specific idea in mind on what I wanted. I wanted to make an […]

Alton Brown’s Pina Colada Waffles

Alton Brown’s Pina Colada Waffles

For months, I’ve had cans of coconut milk stored in my pantry, in anticipation of trying out these Pina Colada Waffles with Rum Sauce again. I first made them from Alton Brown’s recipe 8 years ago when I did my 365 Recipe Challenge, but I’ve […]

Cookie Bars!

Cookie Bars!

Even after countless cookie recipes I’ve made on this blog, one of my favorite sweets to make is these cookie bars. They only take 5 ingredients, and no mixing bowl! They’re so incredibly easy and hands-off to make. And so incredibly delicious. I always keep […]

Fennel Spice Rub

Fennel Spice Rub

I’ve made this Fennel Spice Rub since the very beginning of this website. It’s one of my favorite seasonings. I use it on salmon and pork, and occasionally on chicken as well. It’s a mixture that takes only a couple of minutes to put together. […]

Fudge Brownies

Fudge Brownies

Fudge brownies are my newest favorite brownies. They hit all the right notes. They’re thick and dense, rich and very chocolatey. Fudgy but a little cakey. Full of chocolate chips. I first wrote about this recipe three years ago, but even better – I’ve streamlined […]
