Mocha Peanut Butter S'mores Milkshake | www.brighteyedbaker.com

Even though it’s almost October (how did this happen?!) the weather still feels pretty summer-like in California and, let’s be honest, the ice cream vibes are still strong. Of course like the really good food blogger I am I’ve posted a total of *zero* ice cream recipes this summer, but I’m attempting to semi make […]

Peach Pie Milkshake

July 31, 2015
Peach Pie Milkshake - A sweet, creamy treat made with fresh peaches and amped up with warm spices and graham crackers for a pie-like flavor. Top with a dollop of whipped cream to make it even more indulgent! | www.brighteyedbaker.com

I’m just gonna put this out there right away – this is not your typical milkshake. It’s not made with ice cream (although it is made with cream and milk, which are the building blocks of most ice cream), it’s blended with graham crackers, and it’s peach-flavored… not exactly anything crazy, but not necessarily the norm either. Seeing as […]

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 […]

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 […]

Apple Pie Crumbles {Vegan}

February 12, 2015
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 […]

No-Bake Chocolate Cheesecake Parfaits  - rich and creamy, but lighter than your average cheesecake| www.brighteyedbaker.com

Is chocolate a good cure for the Monday blues? And if it is, can I just overdose every Monday? Okaygood. Weekends are fun because relaxing is acceptable and not guilt-inducing, because you can make margaritas and lounge around the pool when it’s too hot to do anything else, and because you can have late nights that […]

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.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Magic Bars Recipe - a peanut butter graham cracker cookie base layered with sweet and gooey sweetened condensed milk, chocolate chips, and peanut butter chips. A fast, easy, addicting dessert! | brighteyedbaker.com

I feel like I’ve just rediscovered how incredible peanut butter is, for the umpteenth time in my life. I mean, I KNOW it’s good, but sometimes it just takes a heavy swirl of nutella or a solid helping of dark chocolate to remind me how much I love peanut butter. Anyhow, I’m officially loving peanut […]

Thumbnail image for Biscoff S’mores Stuffed French Toast

I love a good cookie – no denying that. So naturally, the idea of taking cookies and blending them into a smooth, creamy, peanut-butter like spread is pure GENIUS in my mind. This particular genius idea is called Biscoff, folks. And it is literally made of blended up cookies – cinnamon-y, caramelized Biscoff cookies. Biscoff […]
