4 Quick Recipes for New Parents

Even though I’m not a parent, I’ve been around enough newborns to know what a tough and exhausting (and rewarding) job it is.

Serve it warm with vanilla ice cream for an outstanding quick dessert.Let’s talk about one of my favorite things in the world: apple crisp. When people ask me what my favorite dessert is (which is a *serious* question, considering my life essentially revolves around dessert), apple crisp with vanilla ice cream is almost always my answer. Unless I’m in a major chocolate mood, I’m going with the apple crisp.

It’s so simple, and when the apples paired with just the right amount of sweetener and spices, their texture and natural sweetness really shine. I like to use a combination of apple varieties so I get a few different flavors and textures from the apples. [Read more…]

This Berry Upside Down Cake highlights the bright flavor of fresh berries and has a layer of cinnamon crumb swirl in the center!Berries are back to being reasonably priced in the grocery stores, and it means I’m stocking up every single time I’m food shopping. I can never get enough of berries, and they’re one of my favorite ingredients to bake with – that’s why probably why I have a TON of berry recipes.

The sweet, tart flavor of berries – particularly blackberries and raspberries – can brighten up any dish, and I knew they would really shine in an upside down cake. My friend Isadora from She Likes Food made a beautiful mixed berry upside down chocolate cake (hers is also gluten-free!) and I couldn’t get it out of my head! I took inspiration from her delicious-sounding cake to create my own berry upside down cake. [Read more…]

Monte Cristo Pancakes

Ever had a monte cristo sandwich? You’ve never had one like this – these Monte Cristo Pancakes have pancakes instead of bread, with a filling of ham, cheese, and raspberry jam.

Ever had a monte cristo sandwich? You've never had one like this - these Monte Cristo Pancakes have pancakes instead of bread, with a filling of ham, cheese, and raspberry jam.

I’ve had quite a few phenomenal monte cristos in my day. There’s something about the salty/savory combined with the sweet that draws me to the dish, and I’ve ordered it at many brunches – the sandwich at Milk in Barcelona is amazing, and Dirty Oscar’s Annex in Tacoma, Washington also makes a great one.

Traditionally, a monte cristo is a sandwich of ham, a good melting cheese (typically gruyere), and jam. The whole sandwich is then dipped in a french toast-like egg wash, and grilled to melt the cheese and griddle the bread. Sometimes, it gets a good sprinkle of powdered sugar as well. [Read more…]

Sweet sticks were one of the staples of a night out in college. At my school, there was a pizza place on campus that would stay open until 2 a.m. on the weekends, but they would stop taking pizza orders an hour before closing. [Read more…]
