These mini cakes are small enough so that no one has to share!One of the most awesome things about being a food blogger is the awesome community that comes with it. Food bloggers, I’m sure all of you agree with me.  The sense of camaraderie and support for one another always amazes me, and there’s always someone to help celebrate successes, both blogging related and life related.

In the spirit of camaraderie and celebration, today I’m bringing you a recipe as part of a virtual baby shower for my friend Cheryl over at 40 Aprons. Cheryl is welcoming a baby boy at the end of September, and a group of us got together to share some delicious recipes in celebration of Cheryl and baby Leo!

Serve with ice cream for the best treat.This recipe was created as a part of my ongoing partnership with Delish.com. Click here to go straight to the recipe on their site (and hang around while you’re there – they have so many delicious recipes and articles!).

No. 1 on my list of favorite desserts is any kind of apple crumble. It’s the one dessert I have very little self-control over, and therefore always have to have people around when I make it lest it go straight from the pan to my mouth..

I’m not an apple crumble discriminator. I like it in many forms. Straight-up apple crumble with silky smooth apples and a crunchy, buttery topping always does the trick, and you can’t go wrong with an apple crumble pie, because who doesn’t love an extra layer of crust? Add berries to the equation and you have a warm, comforting dessert that is equally tart and sweet and crunchy and soft. [Read more…]

This simple Frozen Lemon Cream Tart with Browned Butter Crust is rich in texture and flavor, and super refreshing on a hot day! You'll love this easy recipe.This crust is seriously one of my favorite things, probably ever. It ranks right up there with peanut butter (as mentioned in my last post) and taking long walks in nice parks and listening to podcasts. If you like browned butter, (and let’s be honest, if you’ve had it, you probably love it) you’ll seriously enjoy this.

This crust is flaky and buttery, with that rich deep flavor that comes from browning the butter slowly. It has a shortbread-like texture that has just the right amount of bite and crumbles into deliciousness as soon as you take a bite. It’s melt-in-your-mouth good. [Read more…]

These Lemon Meringue Pie Parfaits are a no-bake dessert that will be your new summer favorite! Lemon curd, graham cracker crumbs, and meringue makes the best individual treats.

Hey guys – this is my second post for Delish.com. These parfaits were super amazing. Here’s the post – click through to the recipe at the bottom!

Lemon meringue pie is a classic during the summer, when the slight tartness of lemon curd and sweetness of meringue is just the dessert you need to break the heat on a summer day. When served cold, it’s totally refreshing.

However, I’ve always found lemon meringue pies to be a little messy. If your filling isn’t firm enough, you’ll have lemon curd filling all over the place as you try to cut slices—not to mention have to deal with the stickiness of meringue. (Sticky meringue in sticky heat? No thanks.) [Read more…]

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…]
