This week I’ve been wrapping and shipping out Christmas gifts like a mad women and have been trying to plan out the last details for our Elf on the Shelf. My stepson also notified me that chocolate chip cookies are the ONLY acceptable option to bake for Santa Claus (since they’re his favorite), so I’m on the hunt for the perfect recipe. If you’re still in the mood for some holiday baking, this gingerbread bundt cake recipe should definitely be added to your list. It tastes like how I imagine the holiday season would, if the holiday season had a taste. It’s got all of those warm and spicy notes and the glaze is sooooo good too.
I don’t think there’s ever a bad time of year for ice cream. Sure, the weather cools down and you may not want to be eating a cone outside, but the right scoop of ice cream paired with some warm apple pie or on top of a warm brownie can really hit the spot during the winter months! This chai tea ice cream recipe is easy to make and is the perfect fall treat with all of those spicy chai flavors. (I especially love crumbling up some biscoff cookies to add on top too!) Switch up your normal cup of chai tea and try it in a bowl this year!
I’m officially kitchen-less and it feels so weird! I’m living in that limbo moment of time where I’m still in Salt Lake City, minus a house, and not quite to Charlotte, in a rental. All of my normal cake supplies and baking tools are packed in boxes, sitting in a storage unit, and I’m completely relying on my sister’s house for anything I might have forgotten that I needed during this month. So when it came time to make this peaches and cream cake, I knew I could count on my friend Natalie (and her kitchen tools!) to help me pull it all together. (She’s the person I started this girl’s night with too!) It was also a really good excuse to get together to make one more cake before I head east!
A galette will always be one of those pastry recipes that wows. No matter what ingredients you choose to fill that flakey pastry dough with, it always looks impressive and gorgeous in an unfinished way. But don’t let it’s beauty intimidate you. A galette also happens to be one of the easiest pastries to make! With summer winding down, I’m sharing this easy cherry galette recipe to help you finish off all of those fresh end of summer cherries!

You may be thinking that it’s a little too early to be posting about funfetti marshmallow ice cream sandwiches already, but spring is right around the corner and I’m allllll about doing as much as I can to start celebrating warmer weather a little early! And what better way to do that, than with ice cream? And not just any ice cream….marshmallow PEEPS® ice cream!
I almost didn’t post this cake. It has flaws and wasn’t up to par with my perfectionist self, then I thought…but it tastes good! It might not look pinterest perfect, but this chocolate stout beer cake with beer frosting still deserves it’s moment. And sometimes, it’s ok to post a project with flaws. I know when I see someone else do it, it makes me feel a little more adequate. I’m not a professional cake maker, and don’t claim to be. But I love making cakes (and eating them!), and this cake is just one more notch in my cake baking experience column.
These chocolate worm whoopie pies are delicious and add a fun and creepy element to an otherwise normal dessert. Check out the recipe below!
I have an obsession with whoopie pies. Macarons were in the spotlight for awhile there, but I’m definitely team whoopie pie. Anyone else with me? They are simple to make and filled with cream or frosting. (What’s not to love about that?) Plus, you can transform them into a fun Halloween themed dessert in a pinch too! These chocolate worm whoopie pies are delicious and add a fun and creepy element to an otherwise normal dessert…and you guys know I’m all about that!
They appeal to both kiddo’s and adults alike and, in my opinion, desserts are soooo much better when they are infested with worms! 😉
This pumpkin rice krispy treat pie is a delicious alternative to the traditional Thanksgiving dessert and it’s easy to make too!
Pumpkin…the mascot of October and the pie of choice for November. But, I have a confession to make. I hate pumpkin pie. Loathe. Maybe that’s a better word. I’ve tried to choke down a bite every single Thanksgiving and regardless, my taste buds reject it every time. I don’t get it. I like pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, pumpkin spice lattes, and anything else that the stores stock on the shelves during the month of October…but pumpkin pie? Noooope. Can’t. Do. It.
I know I’m in a segregated group of weirdo’s, but alas, here I am. Pumpkin pie-less. Until today!
With a few simple adjustments, this pumpkin rice krispy treat pie is a solid replacement for the Thanksgiving staple. (And one I’d gladly eat instead!)
