Cheesecake Parfaits

Some of the best desserts don’t require any cooking. This is one of them. These are adorable little cheesecake parfaits. It is layers of graham crumbs, a creamy yogurt filling and fresh strawberries. It is a lighter, but equally delicious, version of a classic cheesecake. And since these are no-bake, it is much quicker to…

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…

Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

Happy Monday! It’s going to be a good week. I say this because I’m starting it with some freshly baked cookies and that’s pretty awesome. It’s nice to start the week on a sweet note. These are the Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies from Thug Kitchen 101 cookbook. I know they may look like regular chocolate…

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…

Tahini Fudge

I am not a big fan of tahini but my mom loves it so she wanted me to make this recipe. So I made it for her but I tried to keep an open mind for myself too. Also, I’m not a big fudge eater, it’s just usually way too sweet and I can only…

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…

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! 🍎🍏 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….

Mini Peach Crumble Pies

OMG pie. I don’t know how else to start this post haha. Since peach season is still here for a little bit longer, I decided I should make a baked peach dessert! I found a recipe on a website called Dinner then Dessert for a peach crumb pie (link here) and I thought it was…
