Thank you VOVETI for sponsoring this post. Elevate your entertaining this season with VOVETI Prosecco Bubbles make everything better, am I right? They make water better, they make wine better, and they definitely make this cocktail better. These days I try to save the drinks for special occasions, but with the holidays rolling around it seems […]

We’re back with another round of flaky, buttery pie crust-goodness! I’m pumped. Not only am I obsessed with that golden-brown crust sprinkled allll over with raw sugar, but I’m also loving the rhubarb piled high on top because – hey! – baking with rhubarb is allowed to make me feel a little more sophisticated, right? Mkaygood. This […]

It baffles me a little bit that some people don’t like pie crust. If you ask me, half the point of eating pie, or quiche, or anything with a flaky butter crust is to eat said crust. Evidently there will be some of you out there who disagree with me wholeheartedly, but before you write […]

Apple Pie Crumbles - all the flavor of the best apple pie, PLUS an irresistibly crunchy & sweet crumble topping - and only minutes of prep time! | www.brighteyedbaker.com

Is it normal to get spontaneous cravings for apple pie? Because for some unknown reason, it definitely happens to me, despite the fact that I pretty much never eat pie. The other thing I really never do is make pie. That obviously needs to change at some point – like how can I call myself […]

Spiced Apple Muffins with Apple Cinnamon Glaze - an light fall treat that's easy to whip up. | http://www.brighteyedbaker.com #fallrecipes

I’m pretty sure I’ve been living in denial, because it’s October and I’m just barely starting to acknowledge that fall is HERE. I literally haven’t opened up a single can of pumpkin yet, which is so not normal, and my cravings for warm spices like cinnamon and nutmeg are just barely starting to kick in. Like I’ve […]

You guys? Summer is soooo not over. Everybody seems to think it is though, and I keeping seeing pumpkin recipes popping up around the web, fall treats appearing at coffee shops, and all this other goodbye-summer hello-fall craziness. I’m all for the temperature dropping a little below three digits and I love everything pumpkin as much as the next person, […]

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 […]

Did you read today’s post title? Because I know it seems a bit obvious. I write about food. I take pictures of food. I’m pretty sure if you’re reading this you know that I like love food. But here’s the thing: some of my favorite foods aren’t 100% nutritious. Solution? I try to switch things up […]

I’m not big on pie. There’s nothing wrong with it, it just doesn’t have chocolate :-/ So I’ve never made apple pie before, because I had no reason. That is, I had no reason until a few days ago. I had to realize that when I made desserts for the holiday party I’ve been talking […]

Sometimes being supportive of someone you love is easier said than done. If someone in your family decides to go on a “health streak”, you of course support the idea and want them to be successful, but at the same time, it can be hard to adapt to the change in lifestyle that is required. […]
