A Dash of This & A Pinch of That

If you saw my PB&J cupcake post, then you know how amazing that peanut butter frosting was. I was so in-love with it that I had to use up what was left-over from the cupcakes. Couldn’t just throw it away, could I! So I tried to think what to make with it. It reminded me of peanut butter cups, but not in a candy-making-kinda-mood, so I opted for chocolate cookie sandwiches, with it as the middle. I searched for a […]

It’s Thanksgiving already! Where did summer go? With the holidays approaching means a lot of baking in my house, especially once December 1st hits. But for now, I need to focus on Thanksgiving, which means a nice big stuffed turkey with all the trimmings and of course, dessert! I wanted to make a home-made pie since I’ve never attempted one. My boyfriend requested an ‘apple pie’, which from scratch is a tedious process, especially since I’ve never made one before. With […]

The Holidays are here…where does the time go! I figured since it being Thanksgiving time, that I should attempt a ‘pie-like’ cupcake.

I was worried it might turn out too much like banana bread, but was glad the final cake was spongy […]

Banana ‘Cookies’ you ask? Well, they turned out more like a muffin-top cookie, a good one though. Whenever there’s ripe bananas I have a hard time throwing them away, so I usually make banana bread or muffins. This time I thought, cookies sounded interesting. I searched for recipes that had ingredients similar to a chocolate chip cookie recipe, plus bananas. I ended up combining the best of what I found, only to have them turn out more like a cake/bread. […]
