SO. This is another one of those old recipes I’m finally posting (all part of the get-back-into-blogging-groove), but these I totally remember. I remember them because I made multiple batches and couldn’t really figure out what wasn’t quite right about them until I finally realized there are some gluten-free flours I can handle and others […]

Cinnamon-Sugar Pie Crust Rolls - flaky, buttery pastries swirled with a sweet layer of cinnamon-sugar | www.brighteyedbaker.com

It’s a weird twist of fate that sometimes the best recipes are the ones you throw together haphazardly. Sometimes they aren’t the ones that look the most perfect or seem the most gourmet, but instead just simple things that cater to the inner cravings you didn’t even realize you had. These little pie crust rolls (even the name sounds entirely […]

Cinnamon-Swirl Chocolate Chip Banana Bread... The ultimate banana bread - moist, studded with plenty of chocolate, and swirled with a hefty dose of cinnamon-sugar. | www.brighteyedbaker.com

FRIDAYS! – They either call for a drink or chocolate-on-chocolate-on-chocolate, am I right? Actually, let’s be real; they call for both. Pull out your cocktail shaker and the chocolate chips and let’s get the weekend going! Now, I assume that if you’re here you already know this much too well, but it’s worth saying anyhow: you can never have […]

Every year when Easter rolls around I remember that hot cross buns exist and that I’ve been meaning to try making them for a while now, but every year I also realize this way too late, and I promise myself that next year I’ll get on it. Granted, it’s not like I’m restricted from making them for any […]

Every time I post a fig recipe I end up wondering how many of you actually eat figs, let alone have access to them. I know they’re not exactly apples or oranges – they’re a little more exotic than that, I guess – but I love them so much that I can’t resist sharing at least […]

Sweet rolls are like bread bliss. I don’t care whether they’re laden with cinnamon sugar, mixed with sweet potato, or riddled with juicy cranberries and dark chocolate – give me any sort of soft, pillowy sweet roll and I’ll be content. So really, these cherry sweet rolls just had to happen. Shame on me if I […]

I swear I’m not eating 24/7, but it’s kind of crazy how often I have food on my mind. I wake up and can’t wait to eat breakfast. Mmmm, I love breakfast. During the day, I spend dull moments scrolling through the drool-worthy pages on Foodgawker and planning to make everything I see (which is definitely impossible). […]

This week is an exciting week on the blog, because this Thursday will mark 1 year since I wrote my very first post. I’ve been thinking about how to celebrate this occasion, and I’ve decided to have a S’MORES WEEK!

Cinnamon Rolls are one of those occasional splurges, probably not something you often find yourself eating, but something that you treat yourself to every once in a while so you can bask in sweet, buttery, soft, doughy perfection for a blissful moment. That’s exactly what I was craving when I set out to make these […]
