February 23, 2013

I would call myself an organized person. Really, I would. But sometimes, I have to wonder… Because I’m also the person who leaves so many internet tabs open that I can’t see the icons on any of them anymore. And the person who works with stuff all over the table, which I won’t clean up […]

Peanut Butter. Chocolate Chips. Cookie Bars. ALL IN ONE. Yes, please.  I’m pretty sure the whole word loves the combo of peanut butter and chocolate. The most popular recipe I’ve ever posted seems to be proof of that. And these bars? Pure awesomeness. Dense with peanut butter, sweet, loaded with chocolate chips, and ready to put […]

Remember the Homemade Graham Crackers I made a while ago? Well, I stashed some in the freezer since I made so many, because I can’t stand cookies getting old. Or at least, I thought I did….

I know there’re people out there cursing summer’s 100 degree temperatures right now (in certain areas), but I seriously love summer.

I’m feeling guilty because I’ve barely looked at my blog in two weeks let alone written a post or replied to any comments. It’s funny how a few months ago, I was just a girl who loved to bake in her spare time but never thought about everything that comes after baking – photographing, blogging, […]

I love baking with pumpkin, don’t get me wrong, but I have those big 29 ounce cans of pumpkin puree, and one of those cans seems to last me forever! It’s like a bottomless pit, never empty no matter how many pumpkin recipes I make. With another attempt to use up some of that neverending […]

With my second attempt at making some seriously healthy bars for breakfast, lunch, or a snack, I’ve expanded my baking repertoire with ingredients that I’ve never used before. It seems like the key to making a healthy and tasty bar is lots of fruits, seeds, and nuts, so I’ve been trying out different combinations of these ingredients […]
