The ultimate guide to chocolate chip cookies

I love a classic chocolate chip cookie – who doesn’t? The warm, chewy center. The globs of melted chocolate. The brown sugary richness in every bite. But sometimes, we want something a little more special in a cookie. For this, I’ve compiled a list of my favorite variations to a chocolate chip cookie – all…

Foolproof chocolate cake

It’s simple. It’s delicious. It’s light. And it pairs well with just about any frosting, flavor pairing, or decor. Yes, I’m talking about a good ol’ chocolate cake. Moist, light, and packed with the incredible richness of a full bar of chocolate. This recipe is my go-to ALWAYS – I use it as a base…

Basic Doughnut Dough

Buttery, fluffy, soft, and delicious. My very favorite doughnut recipe that creates puffy and sweet doughnuts that become the perfect blank canvas to any creative fillings that catch your tastebuds. 1 cup warm whole milk 1/4 cup + 2 TBSP granulated sugar (I like my dough on the sweet side so I use all of…

Cinnamon Rolls Three Ways

Is there anyone who doesn’t love a warm cinnamon roll? Right when it’s fresh from the oven and the cinnamon sugar and butter mixture is piping hot and extra fragrant…and the cream cheese frosting is *just* starting to melt into every little curve of the roll? For me, that’s a taste of happiness. And selfishly,…

Four Roses Fudge Brownies

Who would have thought that bourbon and chocolate would make for an incredible pairing? I had never experimented with adding bourbon to any of my baking (the closest I’ve gotten is adding cognac or brandy to my tiramisu filling…which is as luxurious as it sounds), so when Four Roses Bourbon reached out about trying their…

The Best Bite of Banana Bread

I’m going bananas. And I’m okay with it. For me, having a loaf of banana bread waiting for me at home is something that fills me, and my tastebuds, with great joy. Granted, it may not be the most conventional ‘snack food,’ but who wouldn’t want to sneak in a bite of sweet and soft…

Yeehaw Cookies

      Cowboys, lassos, and y’all…oh my! That’s exactly what I thought was awaiting me when I moved to Austin, Texas last year – to this day, my dad jokingly asks me if they have spots for horses in the grocery store parking lot. Austin is far from the stereotypical ‘Texas” scene that so…

The Best, Bluest Blueberry Muffins

Whenever my parents would go to Sam’s Club, I would tag along knowing that amid the dauntingly gigantic aisles and bulk items made for a Brobdingnag (Gulliver’s Travels, anyone?), I would get to pick out one of my favorite treats: half a dozen jumbo blueberry muffins. You know EXACTLY which ones I’m talking about, right? The…

Biteheist Online Ordering: Small Business and Beyond

First and foremost, I must share that this post is entirely my own opinion and is an honest representation of my experience with Biteheist. As I’ve mentioned in many posts and proudly share with you all, I grew up in the restaurant industry. My dad, Sergey, (who also doubles as an incredible role model, supporter,…
