I want to say something about how spring is beginning to brighten our days. But as I write this, many of us are working from home (if we’re lucky), stuck in our houses or yards (if we’re lucky), with our children theoretically doing schoolwork but…

Chocolate Chip Cookie Scones Tue, 28 Jan 2020 20:03:51 +0000

One Saturday morning a few years ago, I asked Amelia what kind of scones we should make. “Chocolate chip!” she exclaimed, as she still usually does. Thus began my Chocolate Chip Cookie Scone experiment. First I tried making a cream scone in the style of…

Gooey Butter Cookies (from scratch!) Fri, 06 Dec 2019 19:48:29 +0000

When I worked in St. Louis, I had to order a lot of casual catered lunches. Most of these involved a tray of cookies. As a home baker, I’m really particular about my sweets, and so I would almost never eat any cookie leftovers –…

Triple Cinnamon Scones Mon, 18 Nov 2019 18:34:23 +0000

Despite the years that have passed since I first wrote about these Triple Cinnamon Scones, I had never forgotten about them. They were that good. Although the recipe has been on my blog for the last 7 years, I wasn’t thrilled with my write-up. Back…

Healthier Sweet Potatoes with Marshmallows Tue, 12 Nov 2019 12:57:51 +0000

I first made this healthier version of sweet potatoes with marshmallows last Thanksgiving, and I adored them. It’s simply two ingredients – sweet potatoes roasted, split open, and topped with marshmallows. Thanksgiving just isn’t complete for us without some form of sweet potato. Alex in…

Ricotta Pound Cake Thu, 24 Oct 2019 18:02:18 +0000

I love baking, but even so, I didn’t make this Ricotta Pound Cake assuming that I would share the recipe with you. Rather, as usual, I just had ricotta that I had to use up, so I searched for a recipe for it. Once I…

Slow Cooker Barbacoa Tue, 08 Oct 2019 17:54:10 +0000

My favorite thing to eat when we order at Chipotle is their barbacoa. I love their flavorful shredded beef. I’m thrilled to be able to make it at home, with hardly any work! Never had barbacoa before? You’re missing out, and we can fix that…

Chocolate Oat Bars Tue, 24 Sep 2019 17:52:40 +0000

I first had something like these Chocolate Oat Bars at the Lafayette Square farmer’s market in St. Louis. They were amazing. Hearty yet decadent. I adored them. I first made this as recipe #116 for my 365 Recipe Challenge back in 2010. I hadn’t made…

Classic Banana Bread Thu, 12 Sep 2019 11:26:56 +0000

Although I have a lot of variations of banana bread on this site, I have never posted a classic, straightforward recipe for banana bread until now. I always end up with leftover, overripe bananas, and made too much banana bread before I started this blog.…

Chocolate Zucchini Cake Tue, 03 Sep 2019 22:37:40 +0000

Since I keep getting zucchini in my CSA, I knew I had to revisit this chocolate zucchini cake recipe. Amelia usually won’t eat zucchini, and there’s only so much zucchini that Alex and I can eat (although it is great grilled). So savory dishes were…
