If you’ve been around here before, then it’s probably no surprise to you that I love making cookies and bars. I love making them all year round, so when it finally comes time for holiday baking, I get extra excited because it means everyone else is jumping all in on the baking bandwagon with me – at least for the month.

Every November and December, I fill my kitchen with recipe successes and failures for every type of cookie, candy, and bar I can to share with you the best of what comes out of my kitchen. And then, you have all you need to make the best of my kitchen come out of yours, ready to share with your friends and family for the holidays. [Read more…]

They are gluten-free, refined sugar-free, and vegan.September is starting to get into full swing now. Schools are back in session, days are getting a little bit shorter, and slowly but surely, the brutally hot summer is coming to a close, making way for brisk fall breezes and leaves of all colors blanketing the sidewalks.

I love the fall and I’m eagerly anticipating the changing weather and all that comes with it. Some of my favorite changes are seen in the kitchen. Lots of my baked goods start to get a hefty dose of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves, and leaves my apartment smelling constantly delicious. There’s nothing quite like walking into an apartment that smells like fresh out-of-the-oven apple pie, am I right?

This Caramel Rhubarb Cake is a light and tender cake with fresh diced rhubarb and a generous swirl of caramel. 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…]

I’m usually done with pumpkin after Thanksgiving, so I thought I’d sneak in one last pumpkin recipe in before my self-inflicted posting-about-pumpkin deadline. It’s a good one.

Pumpkin meets both caramel AND marshmallow fluff in these ooey gooey bars, and the result is sticky, sweet, decadent, and delicious. Somehow, these manage to taste vaguely like cinnamon rolls. It’s magical. These come together in one bowl and a few minutes, which always makes me happy (less dishes, more time! Wahoo!). [Read more…]
