Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

I have a confession to make…… I don’t really like pumpkin spice stuff.. THERE I SAID IT!! I know, it goes against my very core self who absolutely loves everything fall!! I am of the strictest belief that the year starts over in the fall- I think it’s my inner child thinking back to the school year but for me January does not mark a …

Dinner

Sweet Potato Hash

This. Dinner. Right. Here!! I almost feel silly posting this recipe because it’s literally just so easy to make and sort of one of those “throw it all in there!” type dinners. It uses stuff you probably already have in your fridge or cabinet, and if not, most things could be easily subbed.  There was a point a couple years ago when we were living …

Breakfast Biscuits

It’s  been a long and difficult journey to the perfect biscuit (cue the tiny violin) but SOMEBODY had to do it!! And let me assure you.. I’ve done it:  I’ve cracked the code for the perfect biscuit with the layers of flaky, buttery goodness you crave! Looking back, I can’t really remember when exactly my obsession with perfecting the biscuit started but it’s definitely been …

Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake

If you are looking for the most versatile go-to bundt cake recipe- LOOK NO FURTHER.  This Chocolate Chip Bundt cake is decadent enough to serve as dessert but it’s secret ingredient (spoiler alert- its cinnamon!) makes it warm and fit for breakfast as well- YOLO! I meant to write this blog post about two weeks ago but I was away for work and while I …

Cherry Scones

OK, I sort of feel like scones get a bad rep in this country… if you go to the UK, scones are synonymous with high tea and other delicious treats but here? If I mention scones to anyone they usually respond.. “Oh.. I don’t like scones.. they’re SO dry!?”  (that is actually a direct quote from my mother before I force fed her one of …

Naptime Banana Bread

Banana bread is one of my all-time favorite things to bake because it’s so versatile and delicious!  Not only is it perfect with coffee in the morning but it’s a great go-to snack anytime of day.  It’s also really easy to customize and make your own depending on what you have in your cabinet: have some nuts? throw them in! do you love dried fruit? …

Baking Basics

Chilling Cookie Dough

To CHILL or not to CHILL— that’s my question at least! Let’s be real for a second- chilling my cookie dough for ANY amount of time after making it is just about the last thing I want to do, next to simply throwing the entire batch in the trash (criminal!) However, after testing three different methods while testing my The Cookie recipe you can find …

Cookies

THE Cookie

That’s right… it’s not just ANY Cookie we are talking here… it is THE Cookie!! Let me explain…. If I’m honest, when I found out my husband and I were moving back to Washington, I was devastated.  I had a really poor experience when we lived here 6 years ago and those memories were branded in mind as all this place could offer.  Looking back …

Overnight Cinnamon Rolls

OK…. these cinnamon rolls are seriously sooo delicious and also sooo easy to make- how great is that!? You can start them the day/night before and then awake to cinnamon rolls ready to pop in the oven- no early morning work required! I like the sound of that.
