I went through a serious, unhealthy Groupon phase. For those that don’t know, if you go to groupon.com and sign up you get coupons to so many different things in your area. The coupons range from outdoor activities, home supplies, food, and anything else you can imagine. The best part was when I realized that every once in a while Groupon offers coupons on food classes. I’m already signed up for a Truffle Making Class in January (yummm, expect that to be a wonderful post). But the first class I went to was a bread making class, specifically titled “Dough Development”. Since my goal is to up my baking levels, I figured learning how to make my own bread would be a great step. Keep Reading…..
Some of my favorite things for breakfast is different types of sweet bread. Pumpkin bread, banana nut bread, and cranberry walnut bread are definitely at the top of my list. Usually, I just go to the local coffee shop to get a slice or Trader Joes to get a loaf. However, I thought how nice it would be to make my own banana nut bread. I was nervous because when I have a slice of sweet breads I judge them on how moist they are. Some are a bit dry, so when looking for a recipe I really wanted one that I felt would do the trick.
In honor of the Top Chef season starting with new judge Emeril, I decided to use his recipe with a few changes. I really wanted the banana flavor so I added a little more banana and a few extras to bring some more flavor. Keep reading to find out the recipe I used to make this moist banana nut bread.

I’ve had this recipe for a few years, but for some reason never got around to making it. Since fall is in full-force and coffee cake always reminds me of mornings curled up in a blanket, I thought it was a great intro treat to my fall baking. While the coffee cake was a hit at work, I have to remind myself that they aren’t the hardest crowd to please. I was generally happy with the taste, but I would definitely make some changes next time (sub brown sugar for white sugar, add a teaspoon of cinnamon to the streusel and, in general, add a bit more streusel). Other than that, it was moist and the chocolate chips just melt in your mouth.
Hello everyone… I first want to thank Alicia for trusting me with her blog and for her wonderful introduction. As she mentioned I bake vegan desserts and I hope you all feel like trying something new. This first recipe is for Zucchini bread, it is so easy and absolutely delicious; it never lasts for more than 2 days in my house. There isn’t a lot of sugar in the bread, so it’s perfect as dessert (just add some chocolate chips), a snack, or warmed up with some Earth Balance butter for breakfast. Keep Reading for the recipe….
So I decided to take on the task of making my first Easter dinner. I’ve been done with school for a couple of weeks, but my friends have been stressed with exams. Since I haven’t had much to do, I thought a dinner would be a good de-stresser for everyone. The menu included Deviled Eggs, Strawberry Pasta Salad, Parmesan and Thyme Dinner Rolls (todays recipe), Twice Baked Pesto Potatoes, Roasted Lemon Chicken and for dessert Strawberry-Rhubarb Napoleon (which will be the next recipe posted here). Everyone seemed to like the spread and the dinner rolls were my personal favorite! Keep Reading to get the recipe!
One of my good friends at school had a breakfast brunch for her birthday. While she was making most of the main food (quiches and mass amounts of bacon were present), I thought making some delicious sweet muffins would be a great addition. I was debating between Coffee Cake Muffins and Orange Raspberry Muffins, but decided on Orange Raspberry based on the birthday girl’s request and my craving for berries. Although, I promise to make Coffee Cake Muffins in the future, keep reading to find the Orange Raspberry Muffin recipe! Keep Reading…
