“Rough” Puff Pastries

What is this? I new recipe for the new year? I must admit, puff pastry is one of those things I’ve wanted to try for a long time but never got around to. Why? Well, they’re complex and take hours to make. Unless you buy store bought, you pretty much have to make the dough…

Top Recipes of 2018

What? We’re already almost one week into the new year? Seriously, where did 2018 go? But since we’re already in 2019, that means that I’ve had this blog for almost one year. It’s true–the first post on Danielle’s Mixing Bowl was uploaded on February 2018! In case you’re curious, it was the . Since then,…

Brown Sugar Dinner Rolls

Slightly sweeter and more dense than traditional dinner rolls, these have brown sugar both within the dough and on the glaze. They’re simple enough for a Sunday dinner but will also hold their own with your holiday meals. Another thing about these? They don’t have to be absolutely perfect. If you’re like me and aren’t…

Pumpkin Truffles

If you’re like me, you have an abundance of pumpkin bread lying around this time of year. Perhaps you made a lot of it, want to do something different with it, and are wondering exactly what to do. That was pretty much my thought process a couple of weeks ago when I made this pumpkin…

Pumpkin Bread

I love pumpkin. Especially this time of year. I’ll put it in just about everything: smoothies, pasta, soup… So it only makes sense that I incorporate it in bread. This pumpkin bread is delicious and perfect for breakfast. It’s full of spices, slightly sweet, and goes perfect with butter melted over it when slightly warmed….

Apple Muffins

I recently went apple picking and came back with nearly fifty (!) apples. Since then, I’ve been using them in everything, including an apple pie (recipe coming soon), apple sauce, my breakfast smoothies, and of course, these apple muffins. These muffins are dense, packed with flavor and a delicious brown sugar topping. The apples are…

Spice Cupcakes with Vanilla Chai Tea Frosting

Its fall. Okay, maybe not technically, but, yes, it’s fall. To me it has been since the beginning of August. It’s time to start baking with everything fall related, and, if you ask me, what’s the perfect food for that? Spice cupcakes. And when I say spice, I mean spice. These cupcakes have ginger, cinnamon,…
