Chocolate Buttermilk Cake with Brown Butter Frosting

“You've got this life and while you've got it, you'd better kiss like you only have one moment, try to hold someone's hand like you will never get another chance to, look into people's eyes like they're the last you'll ever see, watch someone sleeping like there's no time left, jump if you feel like jumping, run if you feel like running, play music in your head when there is none, and eat cake like it's the only one left in the world!” ~ C.

Gluten-Free Pizza Dough: Easier Than You Think

It’s the go-to party food, the something-went-wrong-with-dinner salvation meal and one of the most requested gluten-free recipes of all time. While there are gluten-free frozen pizzas, premade crusts and box mixes on the market, I’m all for homemade. In fact, in my pre-GF life, homemade pizza made a regular appearance at our house. We’d make two huge pies, meat eaters designed one, veg heads took control of the other, and we’d just go to town with the toppings…fun! I’m not changing what I eat, just the recipes!   ...more

Cinnamon Roll Breakfast Cake

Cinnamon rolls are irresistible breakfast food, but sometimes you just don’t have the time or energy to make them from scratch. In those moments Cinnamon Roll Breakfast Cake comes to the rescue. You can have it ready in just 30 minutes. I like it without glaze, but nevertheless, I included the recipe for the glaze, just in case. This homemade cake is more like dessert than breakfast, so you can’t go wrong with it. You can also serve it as a coffee cake in the afternoon. And no matter how often you make it, you can never get tired of it....more

Sour Cream Pound Cake

Sour Cream Pound Cake is a popular variation of an old fashioned pound cake in the cuisine of the Southern United State. Some of the butter is substituted with sour cream , which produces a more moist cake with a nice tangy flavor. Recently, some chocolate chips, blueberries, nuts or nutella are added to the cake batter. You can bake this cake in a bundt, tube or a loaf pan. Serve it dusted lightly with powdered sugar or glazed with lemon, orange or rum glaze. Sour Cream Pound Cake is perfect for breakfast or for an after dinner snack....more

Spring Is Here: Strawberry Cream Cheese Muffins

To celebrate the coming of spring, I thought I would post a recipe using one of my favorite spring ingredients, strawberries.

Ryan is always looking around the house for something to munch on, which made me reach for this Strawberry Cream Cheese Muffin recipe. ...more

Ruffle Rose Easter Sugar Cookie Frame

While having a girl’s day out with Sydney, we noticed a cake in the window of Hyde Park Jewelers, that appeared to be inspired by Vera Wang. Her spatular ruffle dresses are beautifully breathtaking, romanic and classy; which is the perfect inspiration for cake decorating (and cookie decorating). I wanted to create a sugar cookie frame that incorporated Vera Wang’s talent. The next day I sat down with a pad of... ...more


BEST. COOKIE.
