Cinnamon Buns

I finally made them! With Easter brunch, I figured there was no better time than to finally make the cinnamon buns that I have always drooled over but never gotten around to making. The only problem this time was, what recipe to use? I have been pinning and bookmarking cinnamon bun recipes for months at … Continue reading Cinnamon Buns

Chai Spiced Almond Butter

Happy Easter weekend! I finally had some time to get back in the kitchen today and baked through all the top recipes on my to-do list, and then some. This recipe was actually a by-product, but I had the almonds, spices, and food processor out, so I couldn’t resist. Once the kitchen is messy, another … Continue reading Chai Spiced Almond Butter

Last Sunday, I made a big batch of cumin and garlic spiced beans and veggies that I ate for … Continue reading Spicing Things Up

Happy belated Pi Day and happy early St. Patrick’s Day! I never really got too excited about either holiday on its own, as I didn’t even realize Pi Day was a holiday until a few years ago, and I am exactly 0% Irish. However, when you combine the two days, you get a celebration of … Continue reading Mint Chocolate Chip Pie

As much as I would like to cook up some fantastic dinner, I have nowhere near enough time, energy, or creativity left at the end of a long day. In a perfect world, I spend all … Continue reading Put an Egg on It
