I am beyond excited to share these chewy pumpkin cookies with you! It may still be 85 degrees outside, but we are over halfway through September, which, in my mind, means it is totally acceptable to break out the best flavor of the year – pumpkin. I am a proud pumpkin enthusiast and have many…

homemade everything pretzel bites

If you read my 60 before 30 list, you may remember that I have never successfully made yeasted bread on my own before. After making these fun homemade everything pretzels in one try though, I think I figured out part of it. I may have been using the wrong type of yeast. Facepalm. You may…

healthier banana muffins

I don’t like bananas, but somehow, banana bread is one of my favorite comfort foods. There is something about the light cinnamon flavor and the crumb of the quick bread that makes me enjoy my morning, tea, or afternoon snack a little more. I don’t know if it is because I don’t make banana bread…

earl grey shortbread cookies

I grew up in a tea-loving family. My parents have a tea drawer in the kitchen and I, the only tea drinker in my apartment, have enough tea to fill a drawer of my own. We don’t mess around when it comes to a good cup of tea. I didn’t try coffee until I was…
