Jam Rolls

This was more of an unplanned post but I had to share it here. So in my last post, I made challah (link here). It was great and delicious and everything I hoped for. But I had quite a bit of dough to use up and I wanted to make something sweet. At first I…

Peanut Butter Chocolate Hearts

I love peanut butter cups. Homemade ones of course. They’re so much better than the packaged ones you get, usually at Halloween time. Making them yourself is also way healthier because there are no preservatives or weird chemicals. I posted a peanut butter cup recipe almost 4 years ago (wow can’t believe I’ve been blogging…

Chocolate Crepe Cake

This was a good one. I made a crepe cake. Yes, cake made of crepes (and whipped cream). It’s a beautiful thing. I made this for my dad’s birthday over the holidays and he absolutely loved it. This was my first time making crepes (and crepe cake) and I was super excited. I used the…

Chanukah Sufganiot (Doughnuts)

Happy Chanukah! I did a thing. I made sufganiot (soof-gan-ee-ot) which are filled doughnuts. I wasn’t planning on having this post because my family usually just buys some from a bakery, but 2020 has already been so wild, why not just make our own doughnuts this year! This was actually my first time ever! Found…

Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

The holiday season is here. Chanukah starts tomorrow, so I’m super excited for that. I can’t wait to stuff my face with latkes (potato pancakes) and sufganiyot (doughnuts). Those are the two most commonly eaten foods on this holiday. If you want to make your own latkes this year, you can check out two of…

Coffee Cake Muffins

TGIF! Got any plans for the weekend? Why not do some baking? I have the perfect recipe for you! I made these coffee cake muffins and they are the perfect afternoon snack! They are also a good light breakfast with tea or coffee. I got the recipe from damn delicious (link here). It’s been a…

Banana Nice Cream Bars

I don’t know why, but I love eating frozen treats when the weather gets cold. I guess it is along the same lines as people drinking hot coffee in the summer? Either way, I made this delicious dessert and had to share! I follow this account on instagram (@nataliesnaturalfood) and she made these banana nice…

Chocolate & Caramel Dipped Apples

For my last post of October, I wanted to make it a festive one! A few days ago, the 28th, it was national chocolate day and tomorrow is national caramel apple day, as well as Halloween. So I thought I would make a cute little snack that would be perfect for all these occasions. Typical…

Alfajores (Sandwich Cookies)

I realized this week, that I haven’t baked a lot recently. I’ve been making mostly dinners and easy breakfasts/snacks. But today, I changed that. I made a treat called alfajores (pronounced alfa-hor-es) which are sandwich cookies. I believe they originated in Spain, but they are very popular in South America now. The actual cookie is…

Cinnamon-Apple Cake

Like I alluded in my last post (Pesto Spaghetti Squash), I am doing themed fall recipes (this week and next week). This week I am using APPLES! ๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ Apples are such a versatile fruit because they can be used in sweet and savoury recipes. The first recipe I have for you is a cinnamon-apple cake….
