Sugar and Spice Cookies

2014-01-14_SugarandSpiceCookies-600px

Today is a special day… Why? Because today we are having a baby shower for Jamie from My Baking Addiction! I’ve “known” Jamie for quite a while… I think I probably knew her before she knew me. You see, she is a far more fabulous blogger than I am… She is the authority on all…

Spiced Banana Muffins (Munching with Maddie)

I may still be writing 2013 whenever I write (or type) the date, but the new year is here… I can never decide if I love or hate this time of year. I love the holidays, and I am always slightly sad that the holiday season is over.  But, in many ways, I really love…

Gingerbread Granola with Cranberries and Pumpkin Seeds

Most years I try to hold off on getting into a holiday mood until after Thanksgiving… I usually have a very strict “no Christmas music until after Thanksgiving” policy. The Christmas season would start with going shopping with my mom on Black Friday. The house wouldn’t get decorated until later that weekend, or sometimes even…

Spiced Pumpkin Yeast Bread

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Red Star Yeast.  As always, all opinions expressed are entirely my own. Ahhh, fall…. It’s my favorite time of year! I could wax philosphical about pumpkins, changing leaves, and crisp air. But, one of the things I love most about the fall is that it’s…

Ginger Mint Syrup

I know gin and tonics are all the rage right now… Seriously, all the cool kids are doing it. And, I want to like them. But, I’m really just not into gin. Or tonic. Sadly, I don’t think I’ll be sitting at the popular table in the cafeteria any time soon… Though, I’m hoping I…

Blueberry Flax Granola

Just last week, I was perusing Facebook one evening (when I should have been going to bed) and I came across an article about what’s really in a popular “healthy” brand of breakfast cereal. (I’m not going to bash them by name here… That’s not my point.) While I had previously purchased some of that…

Apple Crumble (#Unprocessed)

2012-10-01_AppleCrumbleUnprocessed-250px

With a baby due in less than a week, I may be slightly out of my mind, but I’ve decided to take the October Unprocessed pledge. I have been back and forth on it for quite a while, knowing that it’s not realistic to expect to be able to eat 100% unprocessed for the whole…

Apple Crumble Pie

Fall is officially here! I hope you are as excited as I am about that. But, even if you aren’t, I think this apple crumble pie will help to get you in the mood. Lately I can’t get enough pie… I’m not talking about just eating pie (though, I have enjoyed a slice or two). …

Caramel Apple Coffee Cake

2012-09-13_CaramelAppleCoffeeCake-250px

I think pumpkin is one of the first flavors that comes to mind when I think of fall… Apples are a close second, especially when they are paired with spices like cinnamon and cardamom.  Add caramel into the mix, and I am a very happy girl.  So, naturally, I had to put my spiced caramel…

Spiced Caramel Sauce

2012-09-05_SpicedCaramel-250px

I am having trouble holding off on the fall recipes this year.  I have to admit that I was breaking out the fall spices (and even some pumpkin from the freezer) a few weeks ago! I held off on sharing any recipes too early on, though… I didn’t want you to lose all respect for…
