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

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

Morning Glory Oatmeal

This could also be called "how to eat carrot cake for breakfast." All the flavors of carrot cake but without any of the extra fat (sorry no cream cheese frosting on this one) and sugar. I love carrot cake and still do, but I remember being a little surprised after reading the recipe the first time. … Continue reading Morning Glory Oatmeal

Black Bean Molten Lava Cakes

But that means plenty of time to cook! Just in case you didn’t get enough chocolate in yesterday, here is one more recipe. But paleo … Continue reading Black Bean Molten Lava Cakes

Snowflakes, Super Bowl, and Smoothies

I should probably add snowflakes in again at the end of the title. We have so much! A lot has happened in the past week, and it’s been a while since my last post! I have spent four of the last 8 workdays working at home as we have been bombarded by snow and freezing … Continue reading Snowflakes, Super Bowl, and Smoothies

Mexican Spiced Mocha Pancakes

…with blueberry ginger sauce. I thought that would make too long of a title, but I couldn’t just leave the blueberries out entirely. 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
