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

There’s a crazy Instagrammer I’ve been following lately called Black Forager (seriously, check her out), and her thing is foraging goods in a largely suburban environment. I’ve always had a love for foraged snacks, but a couple of her posts really intrigued me, so I thought I’d test them out. I’m making this a general

As anyone who regularly follows this blog will likely already be lamenting, I have a lot of banana bread recipes. I like bananas, I like bread, and I like being able to throw things in a batter and feel like I’m some kind of flavor whiz. This time, though, this time, I think I’ve found

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

I had ricotta leftover from another recipe I made recently, and I had a craving for rice pudding. The result: This recipe. Rice pudding is great because it’s one of those desserts that you can convince yourself is healthy when really, it’s not. It sits in a limbo somewhere between sweet oatmeal and Frosted Flakes.

Melt-In-Your-Mouth Sugar Cookies with Frosting (Butter and Royal)

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

If you’ve been around Apartment Eats for a little while, you might recall our apple butter post from last year. If you’ve been around even longer than that, you might remember our substitutions post from several years ago. Today, we’re going to put both of those posts to work with these amazing drop cookies. They’re

Cardamom is one of those spices I have in my collection that doesn’t get used a whole lot. It’s very floral, incredibly pungent, and kind of medicinal-tasting if you use too much of it. I’ve made cardamom cookies before, and while I loved them, Hubby wasn’t as much of a fan. They were crumbly and
