I don’t bake layer cakes all that often because (let’s be real) I don’t need an entire cake sitting in my fridge for me to eat by myself, but every once in awhile I’ll pick a special occasion and use it as an excuse to make one. Part of that is honestly because I feel like I […]

July 17, 2015
Individual Whole Wheat Mixed Berry Cobblers - mini cobblers loaded with juicy blackberries, raspberries, and blueberries, with a chewy, cookie-like topping. Dairy-free and refined-sugar free! | www.brighteyedbaker.com

So you know that whole crisp/crumble/cobbler confusion – which is which is which? This is where the lines really get blurry. These mini berry-laden desserts were originally intended to be crumbles – except by my definition the proper word would be crisps since they don’t have any oats in the topping – but then you […]

Blackberry-Swirled Cheesecake Ice Cream - A luscious ice cream with that classic cheesecake tang, loaded with crunchy bits of graham cracker crumble and swirled with homemade blackberry sauce.  THIS is what summer should taste like! | www.brighteyedbaker.com

I’d like to think that sharing this ice cream with the world right now makes me a pretty selfless person, because really, is there any other reason why I would taunt myself with what’s without a doubt one of the best ice creams I’ve ever made or eaten WHILE I’m trying to do this whole be-healthy, no-sweets […]

I said I was obsessed with whole wheat pastry flour, and I wasn’t kidding. I’m also obsessed with coconut oil, roasted berries, and all things vanilla that I can possibly add to a recipe. This bread – loaf cake – whatever you want to call it, makes all those obsessions completely logical. Favorite quick bread […]

Cake for breakfast? In the name of coffeecake, weekend mornings, and Mother’s Day, I say YES. Actually, it could be any holiday really (birthdays included), but Mother’s Day is THIS SUNDAY and it’s time to start planning! Besides, any excuse to eat cake for breakfast is a good one for me. :) I call this […]

The other day I told you about the Ice Cream Cupcake Peanut Butter Cups I made, the ones I kept to myself for 2 1/2 weeks before sharing with you all. This week, I made Berry Tartlets in preparation for July 4th and, in doing so, hogged a bunch of the fresh, juicy berries we had […]

It’s summertime, and for me, that means cool treats for lunch. I’ve been pulling out the blender (and the food processor, but we can talk about that later) to make some lunchtimes smoothies and frozen treats, and this smoothie is just the beginning of a line of summer coolers coming up on the blog.
