Back in 05′ I stumbled across a banana bar recipe on Allrecipes that inspired these bars. I remember at the time I didn’t have sour cream to make another bar that had great reviews so I used this recipe as a springboard to create my own version with the ingredients I had on hand. (more…)
Just about every time we go to Trader Joe’s the kids will ask for me to buy one of the delicious looking mini cakes that they sell and I always tell them “Oh that looks good but you know what we can make that at home.” The problem is I leave with the inspiration to make one but so often completely forget to make it.

Happy New Year! I wanted to start off the year with an easy, very moist, and refreshing lemon bundt cake. If your trying to keep your waistline in check you will be happy to know that butter is not called for in this recipe ;-). (more…)
Peppermint hot chocolate, peppermint mochas, and peppermint bark are undeniably some of our favorite holiday treats. Sometimes these holiday treats can be a bit costly if you enjoy them as much as we do. (more…)
I’ve been on a scone making kick for some time now and it’s time I combine my love for making scones with my love of pumpkin. Every year Starbuck’s makes a delicious pumpkin scone with a thick sugar glaze that I look forward to devouring alongside a cup of coffee or my all time favorite, a chai latte. It represents Fall in every bite! (more…)
Yes, another scone recipe ;-). I just love scones. Always simple to make and very versatile.
This combo came to me as I was thinking of something to bake for a new group I was attending. I love baking and sharing and I only had 2 hours before our group was meeting. Hmmm, what to make? (more…)
Scones. Light. Fluffy. Yum.
I love the petite vanilla bean scones offered at Starbucks. Even better, they sell them in sets of three for a discount but I tend to run into a little problem each time that leaves me empty handed. I’ll order one set of three, hand them back to a pair of hands ready for the sweet vanilla bean goodness, who then passes out the other two, and poof they are gone. I end up wondering why I didn’t just order four in the first place.
Solution. Make my own ;-). (more…)
If you know me well, you know I love FALL. I love the colors, I love baking, and I love making all things Pumpkin! Every year I look forward to ordering Fall inspired beverages from both Peet’s and Starbucks.
Just had my first Pumpkin Latte from Peet’s the other day and was inspired to replicate the flavors in a muffin. (more…)
