apple crumb cake

Coffee cake is a staple in my family’s brunch meal. We make the same one every time, this delicious one from chef Sara Foster, a local to our area of NC , but this apple crumb cake is so good that it might just replace our classic version this year. The version we usually make…

zucchini bread

I love quick breads. I eat them for breakfast, mid-morning snack, afternoon snack, and dessert. No matter the flavor – banana bread, pumpkin bread, zucchini bread, carrot cake loaf, cranberry streusel quick bread – they never last long in our house.

brown butter scones with apple cider glaze

The other day when I was describing these brown butter scones to Lane, she said, “brown butter is your thing.” It caught me off guard. While I do love the uniquely delicious nutty flavor brown butter provides, and some of my favorite recipes on this blog incorporate it (hello, brown butter ginger cookies), I had…

peach, basil, honey, and whipped ricotta toast

I can’t believe I’m giving you a “recipe” for toast. I’m almost sorry, but the flavors of this peach, basil, honey, and whipped ricotta toast are so good that I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share it before the summer stone fruit disappear. There is a coffee shop nearby that has a toast bar…
