Pumpkin Bourbon Cake With Brown Butter Bourbon Buttercream


Pumpkin Bourbon Cake With Brown Butter Bourbon Buttercream. Did you get that? There’s a heavy hand of bourbon in this cake and it’s a lovely thing. And I have a strong affection for alliteration.

Whipped Goat Cheese Gougères With Glazed Walnuts + Jalapeños


We need a new party snack, don’t we? These little nuggets remind me of a very sophisticated bar snack. Something that would be equally at home next to a glass of champagne or watching football. Which sounds a little bit how I’d describe myself if we threw in a propensity for lounging and Netflix binges. And yes, I think they…

Sometimes something is just too dang delicious not to share and that’s the case with this spectacle of a dessert, behold the Salted Caramel S’mores Tart. If I had to pick my favorite flavor combination of summer, it would probably (most certainly) be the graham cracker-chocolate-marshmallow holy trinity of flavor combinations that is the s’more. A backyard wonder. A beachcomber’s…

Salty Malty Cupcakes


Are we all full-swing into summering? The heat has hit the threshold of being just shy of uncomfortable in our non-air conditioned home. But we’re not there yet and I welcome the dewy glow it’s giving my skin. Stella and Gavin have been out of school for a week-ish and it’s been nothing shy of delightful. I boycotted alarm clocks…

Lime Agave Cupcakes With Fresh Strawberry Basil Buttercream

Gluten-Free Lime Agave Cupcakes With Fresh Strawberry Basil Buttercream


The first thing I thought about when baking with Organic Agave In The Raw Nectar was making these Lime Agave Cupcakes With Fresh Strawberry Basil Buttercream. And I knew, from the start, I wanted them to be gluten free. Not for the sake of being gluten free (although that’s a perk for many) but because the idea of a  moist,…

Pesto Pine Nut Pizza


Before I get into this Pesto Pine Nut Pizza (and how much I love alliteration), let’s just talk about pesto, shall we?   There is a lot of hub bub about grinding your homemade pesto in a mortar and pestle instead of using a food processor to sort the situation out quickly. I’m here to tell you it’s fine either…
