Homemade Salted Caramels

I always wanted to be the type of person who had a stash of candy at the ready for anyone who strolls into my home, so ever since I discovered how easy it is to make candy, I’ve had a bottomless jar of salted caramels ready to greet anyone who walked through my door. IContinue reading “Homemade Salted Caramels”

Salted Caramel Budino

Never did I think I would be such a fan of pudding, but here we are. I’ve never liked the goopy (yes, that’s the formal term) texture of pudding, nor did I like the artificially chocolate-y/vanilla-y flavored cups that would be offered at lunch in grade school. However, I had a bite of a saltedContinue reading “Salted Caramel Budino”

Chocolate Chip Biscotti

A crunchy treat that satisfies your sweet tooth without being overbearingly sugary: biscotti. Latin for “twice baked,” these cookies are unbelievably easy, a crowd-pleaser, and can be stashed and ready to accompany a cup of coffee faster than it’ll take you to bake up store bought cookie dough. I like to keep a batch inContinue reading “Chocolate Chip Biscotti”

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 ofContinue reading “Basic Doughnut Dough”

Cream cheese filled Red Velvet cupcakes with Cookie Dough frosting

Yes, you read that right. And yes, it is a mouthful, both to say and to eat. I made these cupcakes after the thought of combining red velvet and cookie dough popped in mind while sitting in a math class – I remember studying for an exam and seeing a scribble about cupcakes on theContinue reading “Cream cheese filled Red Velvet cupcakes with Cookie Dough frosting”

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,Continue reading “Cinnamon Rolls Three Ways”

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 theirContinue reading “Four Roses Fudge Brownies”
