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 [...]

Thanksgiving is almost here and I couldn’t be more excited. I’ve got cranberry sauce, cornbread, and a pie to make today. Then tomorrow, the real cooking marathon begins. Luckily, my parents are getting into town early tomorrow morning, so I’ll have my mom here to lend a helping hand. Thanksgiving for me growing up was [...]

Not tired of pumpkins desserts yet? Neither am I. I have more pumpkin-y treats on my “to make” list than humanly possible to make and eat in a season. That won’t stop me from trying to get down the list, though. With a little fresh pumpkin puree at my disposal, I decided to tackle a [...]

Pumpkin Whoopie Pies + An Anniversary

October 12, 2012

When Andrew and I first got engaged, we thought about having a destination wedding. Then we thought about eloping. Then we thought about having a wedding in New York City, where we lived at the time and also where we met and dated. New York won out in the end and after about a year [...]

The bags are unpacked, the laundry is done, and the pictures from our cameras have been uploaded to our computers. Vacation is officially over. Andrew and I have spent the last 10 days seeing as much of Peru as we could fit in. The trip was a great adventure and I can’t wait to share [...]

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 [...]

Vegan Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies

February 27, 2012

These vegan oatmeal cookies are a new favorite of mine. They are soft, chewy, and taste like a quintessential oatmeal cookie. They aren’t just really good vegan cookies–they are really good cookies… period. To create that rich flavor and texture that you would normally get from using butter, these cookies use a number of surprising [...]

Holiday traditions are the best! Because Andrew and I don’t live near our families, we have this tradition of celebrating Christmas at home the night before we start our holiday travels. Every year we exchange ornaments, give the pups their gifts (yeah, they get gifts too), and watch Love Actually. We did this last night [...]

Sugar and Spice Drop Cookies

December 9, 2011

I have to admit that I’m not a huge fan of gingerbread. I don’t know if it’s because my mom never baked it growing up or my general aversion to ginger, but I’ve never really liked it. This being said, I don’t think I’ll be sharing any gingerbread recipes anytime soon. These sugar and spice [...]

Healthier Banana Crumb Muffins

November 21, 2011

Since it will be an indulgent week, I wanted to make something on the healthier side. These banana crumb muffins are delicious and will be great to have on hand when my parents get into town tomorrow for Thanksgiving. They are made with white whole wheat flour, agave nectar, and heart healthy canola oil instead [...]
