Sooo can I freak out for a sec? I leave for London in 27 DAYS!!! How is that even possible? I’m going to be gone for almost 6 months. It’s going to be surreal, and so fun, and I’m beyond excited. But, also sort of nervous. Big change and all of that. One of my biggest concerns though…is Bakerita! I’m not quite sure how much I’ll be able to bake in London since I’ll be sharing a small kitchen with 9 or 10 other students. Not conducive for food blogging.

I’m thinking that food features about the local foods of the places I’m traveling could be cool, or maybe just travel posts?! I don’t know what you guys want, so if you leave me a comment about what you’d like to see (whatever it is!), I would love your input.

Anyways, moving on to brownies: these are so seasonally-correct, so delicious, so rich, and so absolutely perfect to give to people this holiday season. I’m usually majorly off with creating season desserts, but I’m so glad I made these, and I hope you do too! [Read more...]

Sweet & Salty Brown Sugar Bars

Sweet & Salty Brown Sugar Bars | Bakerita.com One of the best things about baking, one of the things that makes me love doing it so frequently, is being able to share my baking. Obviously, I can’t eat everything I make or I would be huge, so that means I am constantly sharing my treats with family, friends, coworkers, sorority sisters, and neighbors.

These bars in particular went to the Stanley Steamer workers who happened to be at my house when I was finishing photographing them. The two young men were slightly confused to see my set-up, taking pictures of cookie bars on the table with my big background board all set up. Of course, they asked what I was doing, and after we talked about my blog for a little (and they finished cleaning the carpet), I sent them away with a big plate full of these bars. [Read more...]

Salted Dulce De Leche Cookie Bars

Salted Dulce De Leche Cookie Bars from Bakerita.com I just finished my first homework assignment for my junior year of college. Whaaat?

It feels like it was a couple months ago that I was writing a post about choosing a college. Now I’m halfway done. I know it’s a cliche, but seriously, where has all the time gone?

I have this semester at school, next semester I’ll be studying abroad in London (woohoo!!), and after that, I’ll be a senior. It’s incredibly bizarre and I’m trying to convince myself I’m actually halfway done with my college years. [Read more...]

Chocolate Coconut Caramel Bars

Chocolate Coconut Caramel Bars | Bakerita.com This recipe has been a long time in the making. Some of you may remember these Caramel Coconut Chocolate Chunk Cookies I posted at the end of last year. Well, those cookies were created based upon the three favorite flavors of my friend Mariah…but I made them over winter break, when we weren’t at school, so she couldn’t have any.

She was not a happy camper that she didn’t get the cookies that were pretty much based upon her request, so last week when I was getting ready to go visit her and her family, I knew I needed to make a treat that encompassed all of her favorite flavors (dark chocolate, coconut, and caramel) to make up for it.

Gooey Toffee Chocolate Blondies [A chewy brown sugar blondie full of toffee bits and chocolate chunks, topped with caramelized sweetened condensed milk. Oh yeah!] | Bakerita.com

The title of these bars is in no way adequate for the amazingness that they are – I couldn’t convey that in a title that was short and sweet, and the word “gooey” got that message across in the best way. But they’re more than gooey. So much more.

These are rich, caramelly bars that are chock full of toffee bits and chocolate chunks and then to top it all off – literally – I poured an ENTIRE CAN of sweetened condensed milk on top, just to see what would happen. [Read more...]
