Challah Cinnamon Rolls

February 3, 2015

You should know from my post on Jackie’s challah bread that my love for challah runs deep. I’ve made a couple of loaves this year already and then the other day I did something kind of crazy and kind of genius. I turned my lovely challah dough into a batch of sweet and sticky cinnamon [...]

Banana Bread Muffins

March 12, 2013

Homemade banana bread is one of those things that I can never get enough of. I love making it and almost all the bananas that enter my house get baked into a batch. There are a lot of great banana bread recipes out there, but my current favorite is this recipe from Alexandra’s Kitchen, which [...]

Zucchini Bread + Cooper’s First Blog Appearance

August 20, 2012

I don’t really want Cooper to overshadow the zucchini bread in this post, but it is his first blog appearance, so I’ll let you be the judge. Before I start gushing about the joys of puppy parenting, let me tell you that this zucchini bread is really good. This version has a little whole wheat [...]

Sorry, it’s been awhile since my last post. Life has been getting in the way of blogging lately. I just got back from visiting my hometown, where I got to spend some time with my parents and see some old friends. I also took the time to clear out and update my old room in [...]

Whole Grain Yogurt Biscuits {with Honey}

June 15, 2012

My little sister started baking before I had the slightest interest in it. She had a passion for it from a very young age, while I just dabbled in it as a kid. So growing up, I was able to pick up a few tips and tidbits from her and it has undoubtedly influenced my [...]

Baked Oatmeal {with Bananas and Blackberries}

May 29, 2012

I have loved oatmeal ever since I was a little kid. I grew up making those little instant packets for breakfast before school (the maple and brown sugar ones were my favorite). But now that I’m an adult, I like making the real stuff. Real oatmeal to me is always old-fashioned oats and is always [...]

Simple Banana Pancakes

April 27, 2012

I made this batch of pancakes a few weeks back for dinner. It was a breakfast for dinner situation—something that I like to do every once in awhile. I also cooked up some breakfast sausage to go alongside and let me tell you, I didn’t hear one complaint from my husband about the lack of [...]

My mother and father-in-law were in town for a week and just left this past Tuesday. We had a lot of fun taking them around Houston and showing them our new life here. Just last April they were visiting us in our tiny one-bedroom apartment in New York, so their visit really brought to life [...]

Oatmeal Shortbread

February 4, 2012

I adore these cookies. Don’t let the oats fool you into thinking that they aren’t delicious. They look deceptively healthy, but this is shortbread we are talking about. There is plenty of butter in them, I promise. Essentially, this is a shortbread that uses mostly oats instead of flour–genius idea, if you ask me. All [...]

Yogurt Coffee Cake with Cream Cheese Glaze

December 11, 2011

It’s been a great weekend. With Michael Buble’s Christmas album and a stash of peppermint bark fueling us for the last two days, Andrew and I managed to knock out almost all of our Christmas shopping. I’m feeling pretty good about everything we got and am even more excited for Christmas to get here now [...]
