Rhubarb-Peach Pie with Rosemary Whipped Cream {Gluten-Free, Refined Sugar-Free}

September 1, 2017
A classic pie with a buttery gluten-free crust and tangy-sweet rhubarb-peach filling, topped with a fluffy cloud of rosemary whipped cream. Refined sugar-free!

Annnnd just like that, we finally have a pie recipe on the blog. It only took me… oh… 6 YEARS. How do you write a food blog and not share a single pie recipe for 6 years? Easy. You make tartlets and galettes and even pie crust rolls, but you do everything possible to avoid your tiny […]

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 […]

Boozy Eggnog White Hot Chocolate with Rum Whipped Cream - a rich, sweet, creamy, and cozy winter drink - with a little kick! | www.brighteyedbaker.com

For the first time in what seems like forever, we’re actually having something of a real winter here in California. I’m talking actual cold weather – to the point where I’ve even had ice frosting over my windshield at night – and SNOW in the mountains. Obviously I could do without the icy windshield and freezing […]

Whole Wheat Berries and Cream Tartlets | Mini tarts with a light, shortbread-like crust, filled with sweet berry whipped cream and topped with plenty of fresh, juicy berries. | www.brighteyedbaker.com

I know that there have been quite a few berry recipes filling up the blog lately, but how can you possibly resist all those plump, juicy little guys while they’re fresh and in season?  I don’t think you can; you just have to jump on the opportunity to use as many of them as possible and […]

Chocolate Financier Layer Cake with Mascarpone Whipped Cream & Berries {GF}

Chocolate Financier Layer Cake with Mascarpone Whipped Cream and Berries {Gluten-Free} | www.brighteyedbaker.com

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 […]

No-Bake Apricot Cream Cheese Sugar Cookie Parfaits

July 13, 2015
No-Bake Apricot Cream Cheese Sugar Cookie Parfaits - A refreshingly light, fruity dessert that combines no-bake sugar cookie dough crumbles with juicy, tangy-sweet apricots and silky cream cheese whipped cream. It's the perfect sweet treat for summer!| www.brighteyedbaker.com

I figure it’s about time that 4th of July recipe roundup got pushed down from headliner news around here, right? Don’t get me wrong; they’re all killer recipes that deserve to be made year-round, but I’m probably starting to make people wonder whether I realize that the 4th was over a week ago. I might be […]

DIY Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha

December 2, 2014
Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha  -  a warm, creamy coffee treat for cold winter days that totally beats the coffeehouse version.

If I learned one thing in the making of this post, it’s that adding cold whipped cream to a (very full) hot mocha is a mess waiting to happen. But then again, everything I do is pretty much a mess waiting to happen, so I really shouldn’t be surprised. My only consolation is that I got […]

Almond Champagne Poached Pears with Almond Whipped Cream {GF}

Almond Champagne Poached Pears with Almond Whipped Cream | www.brighteyedbaker.com

One of the things that I LOVE about what I do is that I’m constantly discovering new flavor combinations and exposing myself to new types of food. Pears have not even once made an appearance on the blog before – not because I’d never had a pear before obviously, but because I was never really that […]

No-Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Shooters

October 11, 2014
No-Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Shooters - an indulgent dessert turned into a mini cheesecake shot.

How do you feel about the whole mini dessert thing? Because honestly, my typical answer is usually “no, no, no, no, NO”. I know they’re cute and all, but mini + dessert just doesn’t exist in my vocabulary. I like my desserts full-sized, thankyouverymuch. So obviously, I’m breaking my own rules here because these little […]

No-Bake Chocolate Cheesecake Parfaits

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 […]
