Triple Cinnamon Scones

Triple Cinnamon Scones

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…

Ricotta Pound Cake

Ricotta Pound Cake

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…

Chocolate Oat Bars

Chocolate Oat Bars

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…

Chocolate Zucchini Cake

Chocolate Zucchini Cake

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…

Vegan Orange Cupcakes

Vegan Orange Cupcakes

For the longest time, I searched for an orange cake that was as bright and citrusy as I thought an orange cake should be. 4 years ago, I finally found it. These orange cupcakes (or muffins – call them what you will) are loaded with…

Double Chocolate Caramel Chip Cookies

Double Chocolate Caramel Chip Cookies

I’m addicted to these cookies. One of my resolutions for 2019 was to try a new or different cookie recipe each week. Well, I’ve given it up. I can’t stop making (and eating) these Double Chocolate Caramel Chip Cookies, which are perhaps my favorite cookie…

Double Chocolate Scones

Double Chocolate Scones

Recently I’ve had the urge to remake my recipe for Double Chocolate Scones. And not just because they’re incredibly delicious.  Perhaps some of it is that they’re made with a substantial amount of whole wheat flour. It was a happy accident that led to this…

Homemade English Muffins

Homemade English Muffins

I love English muffins, but it had been too long since I’ve made them. When I made apple butter last fall, I decided that I had to make them again – nothing else would do.

How to Freeze Cinnamon Rolls (and Other Bread and Breakfast)

How to Freeze Cinnamon Rolls (and Other Bread and Breakfast)

I love freshly baked, homemade cinnamon rolls. Particularly for breakfast, in the actual a.m. What I don’t like so much is getting up early enough to make cinnamon rolls from scratch. But guess what – I can make those cinnamon rolls in advance and bake…

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…
