Muffins are a popular item in my house: they’re simple for me to make, and they’re quick and easy to eat; no plate, forks, or even napkins are required.
Therefore, these muffins were quite a hit. They’re very simple muffins with a pinch of zest and a bit of juice. And, of course, you have the option to spice this recipe up a bit: use blood oranges instead of regular, and add 2 tablespoons of poppy seeds.
Either way, everyone will love these light and fluffy orange muffins! (more…)
Recipes for lemon bars can be quickly found all over the internet. Most bakers have a lovely lemon bar recipe in their repertoire. And if they don’t, that’s ok because you can even buy lemon bar mixes, just like cake mixes.
The recipe I am sharing with you here is similar to a lemon bar in various ways (they’re both creamy, citrus-y bars), only this recipe is so much better!
This bar consists of two basic elements: a sugar cookie crust (and topping) and a buttery, orangey filling. Sweet, light, and delicious, you can use the step-by-step tutorial below and taste these for yourself! (more…)
Shortbread is a super versatile type of cookie: you can eat it with coffee or tea for breakfast, have a piece as a snack, eat one at lunch, or it can be a light dinner dessert.
What I also love about shortbread is that it can come in a million flavors, such as this orange one or, for a richer treat, you can try it dipped in chocolate!
Shortbread is also amazing because it is sooo simple to make. You only need the basics: flour, sugar, and butter. This one calls for a little bit of orange zest and a pinch of salt. Still, I think it’s astounding that only 5 ingredients are needed for these crispy buttery wonders. (more…)
