These Elvis Pancakes are banana peanut butter pancakes stuffed with peanut butter and bacon. These are the ultimate breakfast treat - made with only 4 ingredients!I’ve repeated over and over how much I love peanut butter and chocolate, but recently I’ve found a new, slightly more taboo love: peanut butter and bacon. Don’t knock it if you haven’t tried it! If you have indeed tried it, you’re probably singing the praises of this delicious combination right along with me – aren’t you?!

If you haven’t tried it, let me set the scene: when creamy, drippy peanut butter meets crunchy bacon, the salty, nutty smoothness of the peanut butter perfectly compliments the smoky bacon. They’re both strong tastes, but they work harmoniously to create a delicious burst of flavor in your mouth. It’s such a scrumptious combo, on toast or in a sandwich, or especially…in these pancakes.

Cause I’m not. I’m ready for fall. I want chilly days with warm sweaters and big cups of coffee. I want drizzles of rain and the leaves turning into all sorts of colors and big cozy blankets.

So, in order to get fall to hurry up and start, I’m starting fall in my kitchen by bringing in all the delicious fall flavors I’ve been craving. Let the season for pumpkin, apples, cinnamon, nutmeg, and happiness begin.

They're gluten-free, grain-free, and sugar-free - these muffins are sweetened with only bananas!Settling in is an unusual feeling, don’t you think? A new apartment and a new city is finally starting to feel like home, but there is still a bit of nostalgia for the places you’ll never live again. My college house (and college, for that matter) has been left behind and now that summer is coming to a close, classes are starting again. The school year is beginning, and for the first time in my life that I can remember…I’m not starting classes too.

Instead, I’m sitting on my patio at home, sipping coffee and looking at our calming view of the Puget Sound, and enjoying my favorite spot in the house, writing a post to you. Let me just say: Our patio is seriously awesome. Super comfy futon, cute yellow trunk/coffee table, dining set, herb garden, twinkle lights, and flowers – what more could a girl want on her patio?

Blackberry Peach Scones combine two delicious summer fruits in a light, flaky scone that's perfect for breakfast or as a snack.I’ve been thinking a lot about the things that drive me: the motivation to be better than I currently am as a person, as a baker, as a friend, and as a daughter. The support that I’m lucky to have in spades from the people who care about me and love me, as well as from all of you. The fear that I won’t find my way, that I’ll always have this directionless feeling that will allow me to float in any direction. The words, from everyone around me, but also the words in my head that whisper my deepest dreams that seem too big and scary to acknowledge.

It’s an unsettling place to be. In some ways, my fear that my life could go in so many directions just needs a shifted perspective – that fear is really opportunity. Seizing the opportunity and extracting what I want from it is the hard part. [Read more…]

So, I haven’t said it “out loud” on here yet…but as I have mentioned a few times on Bakerita already, I just graduated from college. I moved to Seattle…and I’m purposefully not looking for a job. As I struggled to figure out what I wanted to do with my life, I was presented with a couple of opportunities that inspired me to choose the less conventional path: working on Bakerita.

It’s sort of hard and scary to be intentionally not trying to find a job after graduating from college, but the temptation and draw of working for myself and doing what I love is inspiring me to take a risk, while I can. I’m beyond grateful to have family, friends, and you – my readers – to support me, because without anyone reading Bakerita, there’s no way I could do what I do. [Read more…]

When it comes to eating breakfast, I am sooo a creature of habit. I get into a breakfast routine, and I stick to it. Since I started college, I’ve been almost perpetually stuck in the same breakfast routine of yogurt, berries, and granola.

The yogurt has graduated from my younger years, when I ate only low-fat vanilla yogurt. While I used to scoff at Greek yogurt, and I now love the stuff. It’s thick and creamy and makes breakfast just so much better. [Read more…]

I keep feeling like I’m finally going be settled, but it’s taking a lot longer than expected. Having a messy, unpacked house is not good for my focus, and I just need to organize the whole darn apartment before I can truly focus.

Thankfully, I’m starting to get there! I finally have a desk (actually a DIY drawers + kitchen countertop + table legs = desk/photography area) and it allowed me to put sooo much stuff that had sat, sadly on my floor, waiting for a home. Having floor space is a novelty I haven’t had yet in the apartment, and I’m relishing in the final box being gone from my room. [Read more…]

These are the breakfast muffins of my dreams, and if you’re a coffee lover too, probably yours.

My days recently have needed a lot of coffee. I’ve just been going recently. I had finals week, and then graduation, and as you’re reading this (if that’s between 5/21-5/26, that is), I’m at Sasquatch music festival at the Gorge. Five long nights of concert going and shenanigans, it’s bound to be a great time – but I know I’m coming back exhausted. [Read more…]
