Coconut Cream Fruit Tart

This recipe has been in the works in my head for quite a while. I have always loved looking at fruit tarts in the grocery store and bakery, but they are such a disappointment whenever I actually try them. I don't much care for pastry crust or custard, which already kills two thirds of it. Good … Continue reading Coconut Cream Fruit Tart

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

Mint Chocolate Chip Pie

Happy belated Pi Day and happy early St. Patrick’s Day!

However, when you combine the two days, you get a celebration of … Continue reading Mint Chocolate Chip Pie

Paleo Peppermint Donuts

I used it for frosting, sampling while frosting, snacking, and eating plain … Continue reading Paleo Peppermint Donuts

I’ve had a brunch recipe from last weekend that I’ve been meaning to post, but I couldn’t resist making, eating, and writing about these first, so here they are. But before I … Continue reading Mexican Spiced Mocha Pancakes

Fall Brunch–Vanilla Bean Fig Scones

Brunch is my favorite meal, hands down. Mostly because anything goes. You can have breakfast, lunch, dinner, or dessert—or a little bit of all of them! It’s late enough in the morning that you can work up an appetite and early enough in the day that you can digest afterwards. We always ate brunch on … Continue reading Fall Brunch–Vanilla Bean Fig Scones
