White Trash S’mores Buns


Behold White Trash S’mores Buns! These beauties were 100% inspired by my recent trip to Alaska with Bake From Scratch magazine. We kayaked, we foraged, we baked, we were one with nature. And we also happened to stop by Two Sister’s Bakery in Homer and stuff our faces with delicious White Trash Buns filled with chocolate. We were obsessed. Brian (the…

Salted Caramel S’mores Tart


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…

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,…

Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Truffle Cookies Recipe | DisplacedHousewife

Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Truffle Cookies


First, let’s chat about these truffle cookies. Think of a cookie with deep chocolate flavors, a brownie-esque texture which to me equates truffles (the most sacred of food groups) and that beautiful toasty crunch that distinctively comes from hazelnuts. These are probably one of the easier cookies that you’ll throw together mingling everything on a double-boiler until it gets melted…

Spiced Apple Cake With Brown Butter Buttercream


I’m starting to think I have a tendency to overdo things just a wee bit. I really just wanted to make an easy, one-layer apple cake. I was picturing a light dusting of powdered sugar over the top. A snack cake. We could eat it for breakfast…lunch…dinner…snacks in between. Nobody would judge us because the name implies (insists?) we eat…

Raspberry Peach Orange Blossom Muffins


This is kind of a pretentious little name for a simple little muffin. We reach for common baking ingredients (flour, sugar and the like) and then frantically grab all the peaches and raspberries before fall has stolen summer’s fruit. It already feels so fleeting. The one thing that elevates this beauty to next-level status is the addition of orange blossom…

Strawberry Scones With Fresh Whipped Orange Blossom Cream


Sunday morning I carried my breakfast (Olive oil-fried egg on sourdough toast with tomatoes + balsamic. Try it. You’ll love it.) and latte to the backyard. Still in my pajamas I sat on an old, battered, sun-bleached adirondack and just ate and sipped. There was no rushing. No half-eaten bagels. No missing homework. Gavin was laying on the couch building…

Portuguese Soup With Crispy Prosciutto + Manchego Toast


I wanted to create a soup that was Caldo Verde adjacent, with potatoes and kale and sausage, but I wanted (NEEDED) more of a clear soup rather than creamy. So I set out to use all of the key Caldo Verde players: Portuguese sausage (I offer several substitutions below if you can’t find it), loads of kale and potatoes. Then thoughts…

Pour Me a Martini Pizza


I realize we’re not officially in summer, but it’s here at our house. The kids have been out of school for several weeks and it’s a revelation. The lightness and joy that has descended upon our home is nothing short of bliss. Pure, peaceful, bliss. We’re going to bed late and sleeping in. We’re eating quesadillas, playing legos in the living…

| chia cherry muffins | Could the name for these be any less sexy? Chia Cherry Muffins. Snore. But, there are actually a lot of really exciting things happening in here. Most importantly, it’s a healthy muffin masquerading as a delicious one. Let’s face a cold hard fact…in reality, most muffins are just cupcakes without the frosting. I mean, really, who…
