8 Irresistible Fresh Strawberry Desserts


A collection of my most favorite strawberry desserts! Strawberries can be grown year round in California, making them one of the berries that we tend to see most consistently on our grocer’s shelves (blueberries are up there as well!).

Fresh Lemon Cake


Consider this Fresh Lemon Cake a dazzling celebration of the humble lemon, that most-frequently used citrus that adorns our kitchen counters. I don’t know this for fact but I do on instinct. I put lemon in everything from warm water, to savory dishes that need brightening up to baked goods that need some sunshine. Yes, the humble lemon is a…

Overnight Strawberry Jam Rolls


I went completely crazy taking photos for these Overnight Strawberry Jam Rolls. I could photograph these jam buns for days. I mean, look at them. Go on.

Meyer Lemon Chamomile Muffins


Morning loves! I’ve been holding onto this recipe a bit…tweaking until it was just right. Most of the chamomile muffins out there have chunks of chamomile tea in them…which neither my kids nor I liked. At all. And if you try to soften the chamomile before adding it to the batter it will tinge the batter a drab color. Not into…

Think savory Spaghetti + Meatballs  that comes together quickly. Or what about that Salted Caramel Brown Butter Blondie Ice Cream that I’ve been parading around…

Fresh Strawberry Scones


Periodically I like to put on some grubby clothes, slather my face with sunscreen, pull on my Hunters and make my way out to my planter beds. From November to March, my beds are a little sparse and contain rogue growth…usually the result of anything I let go to seed the prior season. This year, I had beds full of arugula, parsley…

Petite Raspberry + Blueberry Scones With Hella Lemon Glaze


My life has consisted of two meals lately: noodles and scones. I’ve been messing around with chow mein noodles, rice noodles, pad Thai noodles and zucchini noodles (which we’re calling vasta, right???). I’ve been dressing them in slightly spicy peanut sauce, a thicker soy-based sauce or a heavy-on-the-sesame sauce. Sort of like my own little culinary version of My Size…

Petite Lemon Cakes


I have a couple of things I’d like to explore, answer, clear up…so pour yourself a cocktail and pull up a chair. First, let’s talk about my inclination towards sweets. I don’t know if you’ve noticed or not…but I seem to be posting lots of dessert recipes. Deep down inside, I always knew I liked to bake. I just didn’t realize…
