Cherry season always comes and goes in the blink of an eye. Just a few weeks ago I was getting my hands on the first of the year’s cherry’s…

And then last week at the farmer’s market, they’re hawking that this week is the¬†last¬†week for locally grown cherries. So sad, but you can bet I’ve been stocking up and giving the cherries the love they deserve. [Read more…]

I have a major thing for fruit crisps and crumbles.. Everytime I make one, it’s dangerous because I just can’t seem to stop myself from devouring them…which is why I tend to make them in smaller sizes (this recipe serves 2-4 for dessert, depending on how hungry you are). [Read more…]

Ever since I moved back to San Diego, my friend Monica from The Movement Menu and I have been trying to get together for a baking and cooking day, and after four months, it finally happened!

I always love getting together with other bloggers for whatever reason – baking, cooking, and just chatting about blogging is always such a joy, since¬†normally¬†our interactions are limited to behind a screen. Since blogging tends to be a solo endeavor, getting to be face-to-face to collaborate and bounce flavor ideas off each other is so much fun. It’s always so interesting for me¬†to see someone else’s creative process when doing recipe development and food photography.

Happy Friday! Another summer weekend is upon us, and I hope you’ll be spending it well! Particularly, enjoying the sunshine and hopefully some delicious baked goods, starring some of summer’s best produce. My summer fruit obsession is continuing strong, and this blueberry nectarine pie is definitely an appropriate representation of that.

Is it just me, or are nectarines a little underrated? Especially in the baking world! You see peaches as the star of so many different recipes, but nectarines are barely ever used. I think that’s a grave mistake, because nectarines are definitely one of my favorites for as long as I can get my hands on them.¬† [Read more…]

This is a gluten-free, vegan, and refined sugar free crumble that will bring your tastebuds to the tropics!The fruit-filled crisp and crumble obsession continues. I am not kidding you when I say I’ve made six or seven crumble varieties in the last two weeks.

I shared this¬†Summer Stone Fruit Crisp¬†last week, and it¬†is already a known favorite around here. It was devoured ridiculously quickly both times I made it, and I was tempted to make for the third time because of all the beautiful peaches and plums and nectarines I had, perfectly ripe in the fridge.

This gluten-free and vegan dessert showcases the best of summer!Help. I’m going crisp CRAZY over here. I’ve always been a big fan of them – most people who ask me what my favorite dessert is get apple crisp as the answer, and I can take down an apple crisp all by myself. But for some reason, I’ve always relegated crisps to fall and winter.

And now I’m here full of regret for having never made a stone fruit crisp before this weekend. It’s definitely time to make up for lost time, because apple crisp may very well be giving up it’s crown for this guy. [Read more…]

This festive holiday dessert is gluten-free and doubles easily.I have been, no joke, thinking of holiday cookies for pretty much the entire month of December (and November and October, because planning and testing).

Instead, I’m going to share with you some other swoon-worthy, still totally holiday-relevant desserts.
