Cranberry Upside Down Coffeecake

Confession. I'm a giant bookworm. It's a condition that dates back to my early childhood. My parents have time-lapse video from Christmases long past where I don't move from the same armchair for over 10 hours. I'm a constant figure as the room buzzes with holiday activity around me. Motionless, except the occasional turning of… Continue reading Cranberry Upside Down Coffeecake

Country Blueberry Monkey Bread

Monkey bread is the devil. I cannot resist it. I especially enjoy a new spin on it, like adding some kind of new flavor to the delicious combo of cinnamon sugar and buttery goodness.  I can more readily call it breakfast if it includes fruit which makes this blueberry filled bread perfect for supporting my… Continue reading Country Blueberry Monkey Bread

French Toast Muffins

I'm always on the lookout for ways to eat dessert for breakfast. These delightful little muffins have perfectly light flavor and a melt in your mouth oh-my-goodness-this-is-so-amazing texture that's to die for. What would you call a dessert that you pass off as breakfast? I mean, besides the obvious...pie. Bressert? Deskfast? Although these are called… Continue reading French Toast Muffins

Snickerdoodle Blondies

These buttery bars have a secret weapon - glorious cinnamon sugar deliciousness swirling all thru the sweet dough. In addition to being a bar version of one of my most favorite… Continue reading Snickerdoodle Blondies

Perfect Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Chocolate is grand, but oatmeal raisin cookies will always be my favorite. Packed with hearty rich flavor and succulent raisins, these cookies are absolutely perfect. Big and thick, soft and chewy. I love them. I'd take these over any other cookie out there. Any day of the week. And twice on Sunday. Odd saying. Anyone… Continue reading Perfect Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Apple Oatmeal Cookies With Brown Butter Frosting

I'm pretty conflicted about sharing this recipe. On the one hand, the cookies taste delicious. They are kind of like an apple crisp cookie. They have chewy oats and sweet apples with a hint of cinnamon. Delightful. On the other hand, I'm pretty sure the recipe was missing a key step. Chilling the dough. My… Continue reading Apple Oatmeal Cookies With Brown Butter Frosting

Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

I had some leftover cinnamon butter in my fridge from making Snickerdoodle Bread. Not enough to make a full recipe of anything really, so I've been pondering how to use it. Then I thought of something I saw a while ago (on Pinterest...yes, all good ideas come from there it seems). After eating these cinnamon… Continue reading Cinnamon Roll Pancakes

Snickerdoodle Bread

A few weeks ago my grandmother gave me four mini loaf pans. She knows me so well. I've been trying to use them ever since so I can bring her something delicious as a thank you. Yes, that's what happens when you give me a baking item as a gift. I use it to make… Continue reading Snickerdoodle Bread
