I like to make birthday cakes for my friends when they’ll let me. Some don’t want the pomp and circumstance, but for those who do, I like to go all out. This year, one of my good friends asked for a carrot cake, and I was determined to deliver. This recipe makes enough for a

This twist on my standard sourdough loaf was suggested by my husband, and so far, everyone who’s tried it has asked for more! It smells amazing when it’s baking, it tastes amazing in your face, and honestly, it’s probably the best flavor combo I’ve tried yet. If you don’t have your own sourdough starter, learn

Quarantine Birthday Two: Electric Boogaloo demanded a birthday snack that could be transported and shared with relative ease, and as someone who struggles with depression in isolation, I needed something easy to make in the event I wasn’t feeling so hot on the day-of (spoiler: I was well enough to bake!). My solution, as recommended

First and foremost: Sorry about the hiatus. I’ve been battling some mental health struggles and working myself to the bone trying to finish my backyard landscaping in time to get my onions, beans, peas, etc. in the ground in time. I’m still here! I just miscalculated how much of a backlog of posts I had

These cookies are about as classic as you can get outside of chocolate chip and sugar cookies. Hershey’s kisses sitting atop a soft bed of pillowy peanut butter send so many childhood memories flooding back. They’re delicious both before and after the chocolate has set, and it’s so easy to eat a whole dozen all

If there’s a cookie to bake a double or triple batch of this season, it’s these peppermint mocha cookies. They’re the perfect balance of cocoa, sugar, and mint to make every day seem like a cozy Currier & Ives kind of winter day. They do have a refrigeration period, so unfortunately (or maybe it’s for

I’m not normally a fan of sugar cookies, but I made these by request for a family member, and I found that they really grew on me. The flavor is subtle, and the texture is incredibly delicate. Despite the delicious, crumbly, melt-in-your-mouth feel of these cookies, they’re plenty durable and will hold up to clumsy

Christmas cookies are a huge part of this time of year for me. I’ve always been a big baker around the holidays thanks to the influence of my Nana and my mom, but now that I’m on my own, I’ve found more freedom to experiment with different recipes. We always had our staples of anisettes

Two holiday seasons ago, I made cranberry orange shortbread cookies that became fast favorites among my friends. They’re absolutely delicious and kind of addicting, but I don’t always have the patience to wait an hour for shortbread dough to chill before slicing and baking (sometimes, you want cookies and you want them now). I finally

If you don’t already have a sourdough culture started, learn how to make one here. In previous posts, we’ve covered the basics of how to
