Happy Birthday To Me!

Over the past few years, I’ve really enjoyed making my own birthday cake. This is what I made last year – link here. So I wanted to keep that tradition alive and this year, I made a strawberry shortcake. I found a vanilla cake recipe online from Liv For Cake blog (recipe here). It was…

Chocolate Zucchini Muffins

Happy Friday! It’s been so cold where I live, so I haven’t had much motivation to go outside. Instead, I stay in my warm house and bake! Today I made some chocolate zucchini muffins, the recipe is from the Bake Eat Repeat blog (link here) This is a double chocolate muffin (chocolate chips & cocoa…

Chocolate Bark

I think I’m in a chocolate mood. It’s funny, I don’t even have such a sweet tooth, but recently, I’ve been indulging a little more than usual. Nothing wrong with that though, as long as you don’t go overboard with anything, everything is good in moderation! If you missed my last post – PB &…

PB & B Bites

Tomorrow (December 16) is Chocolate Covered Anything Day. I’m celebrating with a super simple and healthy snack! These are cute little peanut butter and banana sandwiches that are dipped in chocolate. You can dip the whole thing in chocolate but I liked the look of having it half/half. I don’t even know if I can…

Lemon Coconut Cheesecake

I love cheesecake. It’s so creamy and rich and just the perfect dessert. I’ve made this specific recipe a couple times before, from the Just a Taste blog (link here). I made it originally as the bars and then I made them again, dipped them in chocolate which was incredible! Today’s cheesecake was lemon coconut…

Classic Apple Crisp

Looking for a classic and always delicious dessert? Apple crisp is the way to go! To me, there are two keys to a great crisp: Large chunks of apples. If you cut your apples too small, they will be overbaked and mushy by the time it comes out of the oven. I like when they…

Are you ready for another fall pumpkin post?? So last week I made that delicious Pumpkin Marinara Pasta (link here) but I still had lots of pumpkin puree leftover. I decided to make something sweet. I found this recipe for these cookies from the Momables website (link here). This was a very easy recipe to…

Honey Cake

I know I have posted about this honey cake before. It is made every year in my house for Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year). It is just such a delicious cake because is light and fluffy, and nicely sweetened, which is perfect for the occasion. This cake has 3 forms of sweetness – white sugar,…

Baked Peaches

Peaches might be my ultimate summer fruit. When they are in season, my family always buys a whole bunch of them… weekly. And they do not go to waste! Mostly, we just eat them fresh but sometimes, it’s nice to bake with them. I love making crisps/crumbles but sometimes you want a dessert that’s easy…

Chocolate Cherry Blondies

I’ve been loving the summer fruits that are in season right now. But sometimes I go a little overboard at the grocery store and I can’t eat them fast enough, so they start to go bad. When that happens, the best option is to bake with them! Today, my fruit was cherries. I had so…
