Brown Butter Summer Berry Cake

Brown Butter Summer Berry Cake

The quintessential summer cake: A breezy cake that requires almost no equipment (no electric mixer needed!) and can be made in less than an hour. Even though it may sound fancy, this brown butter summer berry cake is actually that simple. If you happen to be traveling or at the beach, you can still make […]

Honey Cornmeal Cake with Berries & Fresh Whip Cream

Honey Cornmeal Cake with Berries & Fresh Whip Cream

For me personally, I always load up on the fresh berries as much as possible for any dessert- and I don’t think I’m alone. This is my play on a trifle, but deconstructed so people can take as much or as little of each component as they want. It also allows you to make this […]

Simplest Roasted Strawberries

Simplest Roasted Strawberries

Ever make a recipe and wonder why you haven’t been making this for years? For me, that’s this one. I made this last week and immediately was blown away. Roasting concentrates flavor and balsamic adds a touch of complexity. Since then, I obsessively tried roasting at different temps and times to find the perfect match. […]

Strawberry Lemon Cupcakes

Strawberry Lemon Cupcakes

They’re sweet, but not overly so- Matt felt like their sweetness was more like a muffin, but I still wouldn’t categorize these as muffins because their texture is much lighter and fluffier (like you’d expect from a cake or cupcake). These recipe is very straight forward and a great weekend bake. The only slightly fussy […]

Simple Summer Pluot Torte

Simple Summer Pluot Torte

I’ve seen this torte from @nytcooking about a dozen times throughout my feed (they claim it to be their most famous recipe) And for good reason. It’s super simple and hits the spot. One bowl. A handful of ingredients. Straight forward directions.  Essentially, here’s what you do: Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs. Add flour. […]

Whole 30 Creamy Peanut Butter Banana Pops

Whole 30 Creamy Peanut Butter Banana Pops

While I’ve never done a whole 30 myself, I like to use the label because it quickly gets across that this is dairy-free, sugar-free, and grain-free. I’ve essentially made this recipe every other week since May (seriously). Sometimes trials take a long time… why? Well basically I’d make the trial recipe, have 6 popsicles throughout […]

5-Ingredient Caramelized Peaches with Mascarpone Whip Cream

5-Ingredient Caramelized Peaches with Mascarpone Whip Cream

I’ll be honest- I realized that for someone who loves ALL the stone fruit and buys one to two quarts of peaches, nectarines, and/or pluots a week, the number of recipes I have featuring them is actually quite small. I’ve been exploring and testing out recipes, only to reach this epiphany: I love them most […]

Simple Strawberry Lime Sorbet

Simple Strawberry Lime Sorbet

4 ingredients. Throw in Blender. Churn. 30 minutes later you’ll have a super smooth, refreshing, slightly tangy sorbet perfect for a summer afternoon. It doesn’t get simpler than this. If you don’t have an ice cream mixer, pour these into popsicle molds- it will have a different texture, but will be equally refreshing, tangy, and […]

Ice Cream Peanut Butter Twix Bars

Ice Cream Peanut Butter Twix Bars

As it gets unbearable hot and humid, all I’m craving are ice cold desserts. While I often tend toward fruit-based ones, sometimes you just need some chocolate. These are a spin off on my previously posted twix bars. They are gluten-free, refined sugar-free, and vegan and will be a hit with anyone, regardless of their […]

Easy Summer Blueberry Spelt Cobbler

Easy Summer Blueberry Spelt Cobbler

I like to think of this as my lazy pie recipe. It has the essence of a summer berry pie- when that fruit smells HEAVENLY and is bubbling when you pull it out of the oven… with a fraction of the effort. As much as I love pie, I don’t always love the sometimes temperamental […]

Traditional Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

Traditional Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

If I had to choose any traditional dessert to eat, it’d probably be pie. I mean, we even served it as a dessert at our wedding (best decision ever). And as far as flavors go, strawberry and rhubarb is probably my favorite combination. Pretty sure I single handedly devoured half a strawberry rhubarb pie on […]
