Baked Rhubarb Donuts

Well I just barely missed National Donut Day, but I’ll definitely be saving this recipe for next year. I got a pan for baking donuts a while back and have been meaning to put it to good use, this turned out to be the perfect recipe.  You can use any cake base to make baked donuts, but […]

Christmas Cinnamon Buns

I was away for the holidays, celebrating in the Boston area with my boyfriend and his family.  I worked up quite a few recipes that are currently on deck to be posted, but since it’s been a busy week back at work and school I’ll appease you for now with these drool-worthy cinnamon buns I made on […]

Pomegranate and Dark Chocolate Chunk Scones

Scones have become my go-to baked good as of late.  I like how they can be a hardy catch-all for whatever ingredients seem to be lying around, they aren’t overly sweet, they keep well, and I’ve already got a killer recipe that can flex to my specifications.  All you really need is a pastry cutter, […]

Whole Wheat Raspberry Rhubarb Scones

Ii started this recipe with an hour left before I had to walk out the door for improv practice, and somehow still pulled it off.  We had just gone berry picking that morning at Underwood Farms so there was a pound plus of fresh raspberries staring me down, with a few ants still crawling on them and […]

Vegan White Pizza with Roasted Garlic Coconut Cream and Sun Dried Tomatoes

I love pizza in all its forms.  Sure it’s traditionally topped with red sauce and gooey strands of cheezy goodness, but it may get layered with pesto instead, or no sauce at all.  With this recipe I had the idea that rather than worrying about not only making a sauce but also a figuring out a cheese […]

Maple Glazed Shallot Rolls

I’ve been getting really into baking my own bread lately. Why buy loaves for sandwiches or buns for burgers at the grocery store when I can just bake them fresh myself!?  In the past few weeks this recipe has become a fast favorite of mine, it is a completely whole wheat roll that is soft, has […]

cinnamon swirl bread

i first learned how to make my own bread when i worked in an italian restaurant in portland.  i would make pizza dough fresh every morning so it had plenty of time to rise before we topped it with sauce, cheese, and toppings and popped it in the oven for lunch time. sure it takes […]

gooey pumpkin cranberry bread

when i think of pumpkin cranberry bread i think of a christmas party i threw 3 years ago – it involved a chirstmas tree, christmas music and a full spread of seasonal treats.  probably one of the most popular items on the menu was pumpkin cranberry bread. 3 years on, i’m going back to that […]

whole roasted garlic clove focaccia bread

i love making my own bread.  there really isn’t any comparison between a fresh, out of the oven, loaf and store bought varieties.  but bread can be tricky to get right –  either it is too dense, the crust isn’t thick enough, or it comes out lopsided.  focaccia is a simple bread to make that’s […]

peanut butter banana bread

with most fruits and vegetables, it’s a sad time when they start to get too brown or soft to eat.  but when that happens to bananas it means i get to make banana bread!

Vegan Garlic Knots

Ever since my bout with a chest cold earlier this week I have been majorly craving garlic, and there’s a good reason why. Garlic is a natural antibiotic.  After a few days of having whatever bug I caught floating around in my system, my body told my brain that I needed something to kill it off.  I quickly […]

Vegan Garlic Knots

maple coriander rolls

i love making things from scratch, especially you have to put as much physical energy into someone as kneading bread dough, you can really let your energy become part of the food. for just that reasons i have been making my own bread lately. it’s relaxing, fun and really makes the taste difference. i would […]
