Chocolate Caramel Cheesecake

Chocolate Caramel Cheesecake Ever notice how versatile cheesecake it? You can have a plain cheesecake, cheesecake with fruit, cheesecake with chocolate, coffee-infused cheesecake…Basically, cheesecake is so forgiving that you can pair it with just about anything sweet and you’ll come out with something amazing. Take the recipe below. There’s chocolate incorporated throughout–from the cookies in…

PB&J Cupcakes

I know what you’re thinking: “Wow, another peanut butter recipe? Danielle must really be obsessed with peanut butter.” The answer is yes, yes I am. These bring me back to my childhood. Lunch was always a PB&J on wheat bread. And these taste so much like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich that I can’t…

Brown Sugar Orange Triangles & Peanut Butter Cookies

It’s so hard to believe that it’s already April–and Spring! I don’t know about you, but I was getting tired of snow…and snow…and more snow. Don’t get me wrong, it gave me the perfect excuse to stay in and bake, but sometimes it’s nice to have a bit of sunshine and not need to ear…

Banana Bread

Happy Easter! Today I wanted to share something that’s quick, easy, and completely stress free: banana bread. To be honest, I never set out to make banana bread. I get a bunch of bananas for breakfast, don’t end up eating all of them, and, just as the rest are starting to brown, realize, oh yeah!…

Peanut Butter Cookies

Who knew peanut butter cookies were so easy to make? I admit, this wasn’t the original recipe I’d planned on for this week, but, after a snow day/ work from home day a few days ago and a strong desire to bake something that wouldn’t take up a lot of time, these were so easy…

Snickerdoodles & Red Velvet

I can’t believe it’s already March! Though this blog is still nee, with my third recipe already out, I thought it’s be fun to look back at how we got here. P.S.: best not look at this on an empty stomach–the photos ahead might make you a bit hungry!

Brown Sugar Orange Triangles

These brown sugar orange triangles have a problem. I never have enough icing. Okay, so there’s *technically* enough, but I always have a bad habit of “tasting” the icing. One taste leads to another then another then another then… Well, you get the picture. Other than that, they’re great! They take a bit of time…

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Valentine’s Day may be over, but it’s never too late to enjoy red velvet cupcakes. Speaking of red velvet, did you know that “red velvet” isn’t its own flavor? Nope, it’s chocolate (deceptive, I know!). And while the red color used to be caused by a chemical reaction in the ingredients, today it’s mostly done…

Snickerdoodle Cookies

Snickerdoodle Cookies When I first moved to New England, there wasn’t much for me to do. Not knowing anyone in the area and too much of a homebody to venture much beyond the local grocery story, whipping up a batch of these quickly became my go-to hobby. Always a crowd-pleaser, they didn’t take much time…
