Blackberry Cornmeal Scones

Guysguysguys. LOOK at these beautiful scones. I’m a sucker for a good basic cream scone with butter and jam, but I’d have to say that this version right here is my new fave. I was feeling extra inspired and, well, bored a few days back and realized that it’s been a WHILE since I last whipped up a batch of scones, so I decided to jazz up my favorite recipe…

Frosted Red Velvet Cakies

So I just realized that exactly 2 years, 3 days and several hours ago I published my first blog posts ever. Dating from a time in which I was very young, very inexperienced and very into Instagram filters, my two first posts were entitled “A Weekend of Baking: Snickerdoodles” and “Buttermilk Scones,” and featured terrible, low-quality, er, slightly less professional writing and photography. In light of my blogiversary, I thought that…

Amaretti cookies,…

Dutch Baby with Cinnamon Apples

I now invite you to hear a tale of classic food blogger-ness, one in which an innocent Sunday morning breakfast was turned into a grand photography expedition. You see, I set out to make a quick, simple Dutch baby for my brother and me while our parents were out of town. I whisked together the ingredients, melted some butter, poured everything into a mini cast iron skillet and threw it…

Matcha White Chocolate Chunk Cookies

I really love matcha. And you know what the funny thing is? I’ve only ever eaten it a small number of times, and in very small amounts. But I saw the recipe for these cookies on Food52 a few months back and for some odd reason it made me really want to love matcha. I don’t know if it was the pillowy little sugar-coated green treats that appeared in the photo above the…
