cranberry quick bread

Welcome aboard the Thanksgiving Express! I was going to name this Leftover Cranberry Sauce Quick Bread, but Cranberry Quick Bread had a slightly better ring ;) Unlike some bakers and cooks who love the food-centric day, Thanksgiving is not my favorite holiday. I enjoy spending time with family and relaxing in the midst of a…

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…

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…

caramelized onion blue cheese biscuits with roasted tomatoes

It has been a bit quiet around here as I navigate lots of travel, visitors, and weddings, but I’m back with recipes! These caramelized onion blue cheese biscuits with roasted tomatoes are a bit different from the sweets we’re used to having around here, but they are oh so good and make great use of…

roasted berry coffee cake

Our family has a Memorial Day brunch tradition. It started naturally. A few years ago, I came home from college for the summer and as Memorial Day approached, my family realized we would all be home for the holiday and didn’t have plans. As we like to do, we turned to brunch on the back…

carrot cake banana bread

I love having a quick bread recipe up my sleeve to have on hand for visiting guests, bring as a hostess gift when we travel, or just have as a snack on special weeks. My go-to quick bread in the fall is pumpkin chocolate chip bread, but that doesn’t really work as well in the…

everything cream cheese pastries

Back in September, my family spent a weekend in Delaware for my cousin’s wedding. One of our favorite things to do when we visit new places is to find a good coffee shop, and that we did. We popped into a cute college-town coffee shop on rainy Saturday morning to grab warm drinks. While we…

orange cranberry scones

Scones have always been one of my favorite treats for breakfast, brunch, or tea. They feel fancy but still cozy, and look impressive but are easy to make. Growing up, my dad would make chocolate chip scones for holiday breakfasts, and berry scones in the summer. We would snatch them warm out of the oven…

slow cooker apple cinnamon steel cut oats

I don’t know if I would consider myself a morning person (getting up super early is still a struggle, and I stay up late every night), but I have really started to love the quiet morning hours before the busyness of the day begins. To be honest, “hours” is a bit of an exaggeration, as…

pumpkin bread with chai crumble

It’s October, which means it’s officially PUMPKIN MONTH!!! If you know me, you know that pumpkin is possibly my favorite flavor ever. Consuming pumpkin treats in the fall is the absolute best way I could experience the season, I just love it so much. I am squirming-in-my-seat excited about all of the fall recipes coming…
