Blueberry Waffles {gluten-free, dairy-free}

May 18, 2017
Blueberry Waffles - A simple recipe for gluten-free, dairy-free waffles with crispy edges, fluffy centers, and plenty of fresh summer berries!

If you’ve been following along lately on the blog or Instagram, you might have noticed that there’s been a lot more gluten-free/dairy-free talk around here. Even though I’ve always tried to keep healthier recipes in the mix, this was originally (for the most part) a no-holds-barred, flour-filled, butter-filled, sugar-filled zone. That was fun (and still is!), but more and […]

In my experience as a food blogger, one of two things happens when you sit down to write a post. The first is that some sort of intro pops into your head, you start typing, and it all pretty much works out from there. The second is that you sit down, you stare at a blank screen […]

So you know that whole crisp/crumble/cobbler confusion – which is which is which? This is where the lines really get blurry.

I’m about to make it look like I’m this very organized, on-top-of-things kinda person who does stuff like plan holiday recipes two weeks in advance, but the truth is, I just got lucky. What started out as a spontaneous idea for using some ripening peaches turned into a dessert that’s perfect for the 4th of July, purely because […]

I have this MAJOR piece of news, which is that I’m leaving for London and Greece in about a week (!!!), and that means that at this moment I’m caught somewhere between being crazy-excited for what’s coming up and freaked out about all the stuff that needs to get done before then. I kept telling […]

Cream Cheese-Stuffed Baked French Toast & Blueberry Compote - an extravagant, graham cracker-crusted, stuffed french toast. | www.brighteyedbaker.com #oxocookware

I clearly have a thing for stuffed french toast, since, umm… 3/3 french toast recipes I’ve shared on here so far are all stuffed.  I think it comes down to the fact that, growing up, french toast was never on the menu; now that I can make my own I must subconsciously have this need […]

Today’s recipe should be accompanied by a photo of a seriously adorable little two-year old boy helping devour one of these cutesie parfaits whilst showing off his heart-melting smiles and signature goofy character. It makes me sad that I missed watching him eat this by the spoonful, but I’ve already been able to tell that […]

Being ready for fall isn’t a big secret or anything, is it? Except, in my head, I keep questioning whether I really feel this way, because it’s weird for me. I’m usually the kind of person who would be happy with sun 365 days of the year, and if I could live somewhere where it […]
