It’s no secret chocolate and peanut butter are my favorites. I drone on and on about it frequently enough, so I was surprised at myself that I hadn’t created a chocolate peanut butter granola recipe yet.

Don’t worry, all has been resolved and Bakerita now has a kick butt chocolate peanut butter granola recipe (if I may say so myself). Keeping in fashion with most the other granolas I have posted on Bakerita, this one is totally gluten-free, refined sugar-free, dairy-free, and vegan. It sure doesn’t taste like it though!

Cherry season always comes and goes in the blink of an eye. Just a few weeks ago I was getting my hands on the first of the year’s cherry’s…

And then last week at the farmer’s market, they’re hawking that this week is the last week for locally grown cherries. So sad, but you can bet I’ve been stocking up and giving the cherries the love they deserve. [Read more…]

I had a vision for this galette that didn’t go as planned. I wanted the peach slices to be gorgeously arranged, forming concentric circles so they’d appear like a rose of sorts, with golden pink raspberries adorning the juicy, peachy flower.

Unfortunately, my peaches were finicky farmer’s market peaches, and not willing to go along with my plan. The pits would NOT come out, so I had to carve the peach slices out around the pit, making for much less than pretty slices. More like hacked up slices. [Read more…]

You guys…I can’t even with the small talk today. Too excited about all things strawberry and almond butter !!! This dessert gets me seriously giddy. 

I have a major thing for fruit crisps and crumbles.. Everytime I make one, it’s dangerous because I just can’t seem to stop myself from devouring them…which is why I tend to make them in smaller sizes (this recipe serves 2-4 for dessert, depending on how hungry you are). [Read more…]
