This quick bread is one treat you can enjoy guilt free!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…]

This easy recipe is gluten-free, refined sugar free, and vegan.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…]

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…]

This S'mores Oreo Skillet Brownie has a graham cracker & S'mores Oreo crust with a gooey, fudgy brownie center and toasted marshmallows. How in the world did Nabisco come out with S’mores Oreos and not call them S’moreos? It’s outrageous. It was the perfect name waiting to happen. How did they miss it?!?!

I digress – but only because the contents are so good! I was pleasantly surprised by the S’mores Oreos. The outside cookies are totally like a graham cracker, and the filling is too obnoxiously sweet for me to really tell any real flavor difference, but you definitely get a little bit of chocolate with your graham crackers.

I went to New York City, where my mom, sister, and I ate through the list of recommendations I received from followers on my Instagram. Thank you, thank you, thank you guys for leading me to some delicious food.

We went to Smorgasburg, which if you like food and are in NYC…you must go. This is total foodie heaven with every type of food you could possibly imagine. We had Bolivian saltenas and pork sliders, Venezuelan arepas, raw zucchini noodles in superfood pesto, and samples of way too much other good stuff. I could go back every weekend for a month and still not try everything that I thought looked good! [Read more…]

It's gluten free, refined sugar free, and vegan.I never really know what to say when people ask me what my favorite dessert is, or what my favorite thing I’ve ever made is. I have over 250 recipes on Bakerita.com, and that’s not included all the desserts I made pre-Bakerita or the recipes that never made it up for whatever reason. There’s so many choices, and my answer changes way too frequently.

But, one dessert is always my kryptonite: apple crisp. I can never resist it. Something about the warm, baked, bubbling apples and that crunchy crumble topping does me in every time. Add a scoop of ice cream on top and I’m a goner. The way the cold ice cream melts down into the crevices of the crisp, adding a light extra sweetness and creaminess is totally irresistible.

This is a quick and easy dessert you won't want to miss!I’m pretty sure the past few weeks have been the most erratic emotional rollercoaster of my life. I powered through my last finals week of college (stressful), graduated (exciting), had a week of apartment hunting (stressful), went to Sasquatch music festival (crazy fun/exciting/exhausting), had another week of apartment hunting (stressful/exhausting), moved to a new apartment, (exciting/exhausting) and then had four days of furniture shopping and getting settled in.

As I write this, I’m on a flight to New York City to meet up with my mom and visit my sister, followed by a quick trip to Chicago for a few days to celebrate my mom’s birthday. I really haven’t had a break, hence the sort of erratic posting schedule (sorry!). [Read more…]

The no-bake chocolate crust is filled with vegan chocolate ganache and topped with fresh raspberries for a decadent, guilt-free treat. One of my absolute favorite parts about summertime is the berries. There’s nothing like a fresh, ripe strawberry that has juice dripping down your chin, or being able to pop sweet and tart raspberries in your mouth. I love all of them, and as they come into season and get sweeter, brighter, and more affordable, they become a staple of my summer diet.

While I love to devour them alone, enjoying their sweetness and freshness, I also love to make (and eat) berry tarts. If you’ve been around Bakerita for a while…you’ve probably seen some of my favorites. This Chocolate Berry Tart is one my ultimate favorites (and it’s Paleo and vegan!) and this Blueberry Crisp Tart with Oatmeal Crust is comforting and delicious. [Read more…]
