***2017 UPDATE!!!*** Since I first posted these on March 1st, 2015, they’ve been SO loved by so many of you. They’re incredibly gooey, rich, and delicious, and they come together so quickly and easily you won’t believe it. The original post photos were lackluster for how deliciously amazing these are, so I’m giving them a new 2017 update.

I’m keeping the original 2015 post written below though – for nostalgia’s sake, and all that. Throwback to my good old days living with all my best friends in college! ❤️ Hope you enjoy the new photos and delicious recipe!

These Peanut Butter & Jelly Blondies are a super gooey and delicious way to enjoy this classic sandwich combo! These dessert bars are gluten-free, grain-free and refined sugar-free.It’s peanut butter jelly time! Every time I think about peanut butter and jelly, the peanut butter jelly time song starts playing involuntarily on repeat in my head. In fact, it’s been playing in my head non-stop as I’ve edited photos and it’ll probably be playing in my head while I write this post. It’s so catchy (and mildly annoying).

But, it commemorates arguably the most American lunch there is: peanut butter and jelly! Were you a peanut butter and jelly kid in elementary school, or did you prefer other meals packed in your lunch box? I’ve always loved PB&J, which my peanut butter obsession no doubt contributed to, but there’s so many other totally delicious ways to enjoy the combo than in just a sandwich. [Read more…]

I spent the morning making way more croissants than three girls could eat, but we tried anyways.

It was nice to finally cross croissants off my bucket list – they’d been on it for years, and I was like a proud momma as I pulled my beautifully puffed, browned, beautiful croissants from the oven. I made tons of flavors because I had tons of dough and had to use all of it. [Read more…]

These Nutty Blondies are a soft and chewy brown sugar blondie filled with sliced almonds, pecans, and cashews. You'll love these chewy treats!One of the best things about food blogging is the community – pretty much any food blogger will tell you that, but it took me way too long to figure out.

I started blogging when I was just sixteen years old, and I always felt like such a baby in the food blogging world that I never really reached out to other bloggers to make friends. Uhhh…such a mistake. As soon as I started chatting with other food bloggers, I realized how much value there is in chatting with other people who do the same thing as you, especially when that thing is done at home by yourself.

These Pecan Pie Blondies are a portable version of one of my favorite pies! The recipe for these sweet bars makes rich browned butter blondies topped with crunchy pecan pie filling.I had planned on sharing a different recipe today, but after the reactions that these pecan pie blondies produced, I had to share them with you as soon as I could, or it just wouldn’t be nice of me.

Yesterday, I urged my roommate Ally to try one of these pecan pie blondies, giving her my description: “the brown butter blondie base you love, topped with maple pecan pie filling”. She’s tried pretty much all of the baked goods that I’ve made over the past few years, and so she’s a pretty good judge of comparison and her reactions help me be able to call something absolutely amazing. I don’t know if she was expecting much, but as she took her first few bites, there was moaning and a definite teary eye.

I have some major feelings about these Blueberry Crumb Blondies. Really, really good feelings, that make me want to bake a gigantic batch of these so that I have enough to hand one to each of you. Whenever I make a batch of blondies, I remember how much I love them, and why.

They’re seriously so easy. Anything that doesn’t require a mixer and can be made with just a bowl and wooden spoon scores major points in my book. These bars go from start to oven within about 10 minutes. That scores big points in my book. Easy = awesome.
