It’s the final day of the year, and I’m waking up in London! I arrived yesterday with my friend Paige around 2 PM, we took a taxi to the hotel, and set off to explore a little bit. We got our new British phones and some toiletries, ate dinner, and proceeded to pass out for 15 hours. Guess we needed a little bit of sleep?

We’re still drowsy/jet-lagged, but so ready for an amazing New Years Eve in London! This is going to be a short post, 1) because our Internet is almost expired, and 2) we really need to get out of bed and go run some errands. [Read more...]

Sooo can I freak out for a sec? I leave for London in 27 DAYS!!! How is that even possible? I’m going to be gone for almost 6 months. It’s going to be surreal, and so fun, and I’m beyond excited. But, also sort of nervous. Big change and all of that. One of my biggest concerns though…is Bakerita! I’m not quite sure how much I’ll be able to bake in London since I’ll be sharing a small kitchen with 9 or 10 other students. Not conducive for food blogging.

I’m thinking that food features about the local foods of the places I’m traveling could be cool, or maybe just travel posts?! I don’t know what you guys want, so if you leave me a comment about what you’d like to see (whatever it is!), I would love your input.

Anyways, moving on to brownies: these are so seasonally-correct, so delicious, so rich, and so absolutely perfect to give to people this holiday season. I’m usually majorly off with creating season desserts, but I’m so glad I made these, and I hope you do too! [Read more...]

Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies from Bakerita.com

Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies from Bakerita.com Chocolate chip cookies are just one of life’s greatest simple pleasures. Nothing beats biting into a warm cookie with gooey chocolate melting out of it. Add a cup of milk for dunking and you’re golden. It’s one of the more comforting things in this world, and something that should definitely not have to be given up just because you’re gluten-free.

Since some of my family members are gluten-free, a really really good gluten-free chocolate chip cookie has been on my to-do list for a while. It’s something that needs to be done right, and a lot of times, gluten-free baked goods just aren’t the same as their more glutenous counterparts. These cookies though, they know what’s up.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Sweet Rolls

Chocolate Peanut Butter Sweet Rolls with Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Frosting from Bakerita.com …with peanut butter cream cheese frosting. Because seriously, can you make a cinnamon roll-eque recipe without some sort of cream cheese frosting? I think not.

This recipe is actually part of a contest. A peanut butter contest! If you follow my blog, you know I absolutely love peanut butter, and I’ve even guest posted for the National Peanut Board. When they asked me to participate in a peanut butter recipe contest for National Peanut Month, answering no didn’t even cross my mind. [Read more...]

Sweet & Salty Brown Sugar Bars

Sweet & Salty Brown Sugar Bars | Bakerita.com One of the best things about baking, one of the things that makes me love doing it so frequently, is being able to share my baking. Obviously, I can’t eat everything I make or I would be huge, so that means I am constantly sharing my treats with family, friends, coworkers, sorority sisters, and neighbors.

These bars in particular went to the Stanley Steamer workers who happened to be at my house when I was finishing photographing them. The two young men were slightly confused to see my set-up, taking pictures of cookie bars on the table with my big background board all set up. Of course, they asked what I was doing, and after we talked about my blog for a little (and they finished cleaning the carpet), I sent them away with a big plate full of these bars. [Read more...]

S’mores Cheesecake

S'mores Cheesecake | Bakerita.com Let’s talk about things that make us happy. More specifically: let’s talk about what happens when you make a s’mores cheesecake.

First off, s’mores is just inherently comfort food. It reminds us of campfires, some off-tune singing of campfire songs, summertime, and spending time with family and friends. Something about melty chocolate, crunchy graham crackers, and that perfectly toasted marshmallow just works. Whoever thought of s’mores is a genius. [Read more...]
