Peanut Butter Ice Cream “Pupcakes”

Oh hi, remember me!? It’s be a tough few weeks in my personal and professional life, but nothing makes me feel more like myself than getting in the kitchen and baking something sweet. I finally have free time now that my oral board exam is over, and I’m hoping to get back into the swing of things with semi-regular posting ....more

Flamingo Cupcakes

Baking has been feast or famine over here – and the past week has been quite the feast! I finally made my way back into the kitchen to whip up three treats in one weekend. I couldn’t let the summer fly by without doing at least a few more adorable desserts to celebrate my favorite season ....more

Grilled S’Mores Banana Boats

This dessert is almost too embarrassingly easy to share here, but I have a feeling a number of you will appreciate the simplicity of this treat as much as I did. I know I say it every single summer, but any dessert that doesn’t involve turning on my oven in the summertime is one I love. For the first time in our adult lives, Ryan and I have a grill at our house, and we’re quickly becoming BBQ-addicts ....more

Cookie Monster Ice Cream Sandwiches

Have you seen the cookie monster ice cream craze going on this summer? I’ve noticed a lot of “cookie monster” desserts in general on blogs the past year or so, and I’ve bookmarked tons of them. As a HUGE cookies and cream fan, I’m all over this trend, even with the shocking blue coloration ....more

Blueberry Cream Cheese-Filled Muffins

Muffins! But not just muffins, there’s cream cheese filling! And fresh blueberries! ...more

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Dessert Hummus

So I go MIA for 3 weeks here on the blog, and then I show up with chickpeas made into a dessert....more

Strawberry Shortcake Layer Cake

STRAWBERRY SEASON!! When you’re an avid baker, it’s certainly something to celebrate. I have been obsessing over how pretty the strawberries have been in the grocery store, and so of course I jumped at the chance to make something fancy with them ....more

Peanut Butter Oreo Banana Bread

I realize my posting has been less often these days – I strive to post every week, but recently I’ve slumped into an every other week pattern. There is a lot going on outside the world of sugar and sweets for me, we are spending so much time outside with Piper (yay, spring!), I’m in the middle of an exciting job transition, and Ryan and I have had a lot of bachelor and bachelorette parties too! Not a lot of free time for baking, but there’s always time for a quick bread ....more

Chocolate Chip Cookie Icebox Cake

Believe it or not I’ve never had or made an icebox cake before. Well, much to my delight, an icebox cake just involves layering cookies and whipped cream and letting all the flavors meld together and the cookies soften up overnight in the fridge. Icebox=fridge, duhhhhh ....more

Bernese Mountain Dog Cookies

It was only a matter of time, right?? I have made plenty of shapes out of sugar cookies and royal icing, so it comes as no surprise that I would try my best to make edible little Piper cookies. Piper is my 8 month old Bernese Mountain Dog if you’re unaware (which really means you should be following me on Instagram!!), and I could just SQUEAL I’m so proud of these cookies ....more
