Cinnamon Toast Crunch Banana Bread

I can sense you’re judging me right now. I know… just because I CAN do something doesn’t mean I SHOULD. I blame my whimsical inner child. Banana bread is amazing. Moist, sweet, warm and dense. But you know what banana bread doesn’t have? Crunch. The cereal crumble adds a different texture that isn’t nuts (IContinue reading “Cinnamon Toast Crunch Banana Bread”

Butterscotch Potato Chip Cookies

Before you ask. No. I’m not pregnant. Guys, when I posted these, I got so many Instagram messages that said either “gross” or “are you pregnant?” LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING.

Peanut Butter-Stuffed Chocolate Cookies

You know what I love about American food culture? We’re are convinced that the best kind of food is STUFFED. For example: baked potatoes are better stuffed with sour cream & bacon.

I came upon a chocolate-dipped biscotti, and thought “welp, I guess it’s kinda like a cookie.”Continue reading “Almond Chocolate Chip Biscotti”

Pretzel Chocolate Chip Cookies

I had every intention of using this time at home to get healthy. To happily eat spinach salads and roll out the yoga mat for a home workout. To make smoothies, to do squats, to take supplements. In my head, I was going to strut out of quarantine with shiny hair, glowy skin, and aContinue reading “Pretzel Chocolate Chip Cookies”

Almond Peach Loaf

I was always a vanilla girl with vanilla desserts. By that, I mean I was #basic with my baking. You’ll find vanilla extract in almost everything I make. Until I married my handsome Dutchman and was introduced to the world of almond. For a few years now, my husband’s wonderful family has invited me toContinue reading “Almond Peach Loaf”
