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…

Steel Cut Oats with Walnuts and Pear

Steel Cut Oats with Walnuts and Pear

Today I’m writing about my favorite new healthy breakfast. I stumbled upon this combination of steel-cut oats, walnuts, and pear by accident, but I honestly can’t get enough of it now. Some days I wake up craving it. I’ve loved steel-cut oats since I first…

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…

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…

Fresh Apple Cinnamon Scones

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

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…

Smitten Kitchen’s Perfect Blueberry Muffins

Smitten Kitchen’s Perfect Blueberry Muffins

In Southern New Jersey, I live near farms where I can pick blueberries for 4 weeks every summer. Hammonton, only a 30 minute drive from me, calls itself the blueberry capital of the world. And indeed, New Jersey blueberries are fantastic. I’m a recent transplant…

Strawberry Bellinis

Strawberry Bellinis

I was recently reminded of that time that I prepared way too many bellinis for my good friend Jen’s bridal shower. I’d never planned for a formal (-ish) party before and I had no sense of scale, no idea how much of anything would be…

Strawberry and Cream Scones

Strawberry and Cream Scones

These Strawberry and Cream Scones are among my favorite scones ever. I made them frequently in 2012 when I first tried them. It’s been such a long winter this year. I figured that if spring weather wasn’t going to arrive and stay, I should take…
