This roasted asparagus salad is super easy to make and is basically the perfect combination of health and comfort due to the roasted potatoes and delicious vegetables.
I love this recipe because even though it’s a “salad,” it’s a meal by itself and is super simple to make. You cut some potatoes, prep some asparagus, roast everything together and boil some eggs. Serve it up on a plate, pour some dressing on it and voilà, dinner is served! (more…)
Latest bake: brown butter coconut cake! This is a dense loaf cake that’s soft on the inside and crunchy on the outside.
It’s hearty and filling and tastes great as breakfast, topped with a bit of whipped cream and a handful of berries. (more…)
A couple weeks ago, I bought a ton of heavy cream so that I could experiment making chocolate ganache (even though chocolate ganache is actually a super easy, two-ingredient operation —it’s just that I don’t think I’ve made ganache since these ganache brownies and I wanted to make sure I had room for mistakes!).
Long story short, I had a lot of heavy cream left over and needed to quickly come up with a good recipe to use it on. Naturally, I turned to crème brûlée. (more…)
Once a month, I bake for my co-workers. I let them give me requests and I try to bake something that’s up to their satisfaction.
Not too long ago, the request was Oreo cupcakes. (more…)

Thanksgiving leftovers are the best! But I think we can agree that not all leftovers reheat well in the microwave. Sweet potato casserole is one of those examples. It’s impossible to recreate that fresh-from-the-oven toasted marshmallow deliciousness the day after.
Unless… you repurpose your leftovers into this delicious sweet potato cheesecake! (more…)
Lately, I’ve been trying to come up with to-go breakfast ideas that I can easily eat at work. The other day, I remembered we had English muffins in the freezer and thought they would be perfect!
But when I took them out, I could tell right away that they were freezer burned (honestly not sure how long they had been there…) so I decided I would make some English muffins myself the following weekend. Homemade is better anyway, right?
These whole wheat muffins are amazing! They rise tall, have a perfect crumble, and have a nice, hearty touch due to the whole wheat. My ideal English muffin is toasted with some salted butter, topped with some raspberry jam! (more…)
Scones seem simple, but they’re actually an extremely delicate treat. If the dough is too warm or too wet, your scones come out like cookies. Too dry, and they come out cakey.
This matcha scones recipe took a couple takes — not only with texture, but also perfecting the flavor and sweetness level. (more…)
Peanut butter cookies are classic, and these are made even better with the addition of peanut butter chips!
These cookies are slightly softer than the regular peanut butter variety and still have that amazing salty-sweet crunch. (more…)
When it comes to desserts, it’s how well you make the simple things that show your mastery. There are no crazy flavors or fancy sprinkles to mask your mistakes. Your pastry stands on its own.
Simplicity is a form of honesty. (more…)
