Recommended: Citrus Bundt Cake from Baking Bites

Bundt cakes are one of my favorite types of cake to bake when bringing it over to someone’s house. I like to think of it as a casual elegant dessert. It looks really fancy, but there isn’t much work involved in making it so presentable – unlike a layered cake with frosting. I had an…

Recipe: Bacon and Maple Doughnuts with Chocolate Espresso Glaze.

While I was in England visiting my best friend Kate (who has an amazing comic series called West that you can check out by clicking here), we had this amusing conversation while I was cooking dinner one night. She mentioned something along the lines about wondering how many different animals produce the foods that she…

Recipe: Peanut Butter Streusel Coffee Cake

When I was in elementary school, I remember sometimes getting breakfasts on campus instead of eating something at home. Back then, it was only $0.35 for a filling breakfast with milk.

They’re almost like latkes, but with chunks of garlic and onions in it. Gather your ingredients, which isn’t much. Two medium sized squashes,…

Recipe: Blueberry Lemon Coffee Cake with Almonds

I had baked a bunch of things last week and took pictures of them so I could post recipes on my blog. But when I sat down to actually post one of them, none of them seemed interesting to me anymore. I was complaining to a friend about it and she asked what I wanted…

Recipe: Fruit Preserves Cake

When I come up with different recipes, they’re usually jotted down on a piece of paper that floats around my kitchen and office space with numerous edits scrawled on it…Until I get the recipe right and transfer it to another piece of paper that floats around for a bit until I file it away in…

Recipe: Honey Spiced Pear Cake.

The cake is buttery, crumbly, moist, and tender. It’s a double layer, but the recipe is easily cut in half to make a single layer. Unfortunately, there’s no pictures of every single step…I’m the cook AND photographer, so I didn’t feel like washing my hands after every single step before I man-handled my camera. The…
