Peach Upside Down Cake

I basically refuse to stop using summer produce until it’s officially fall, which means I have approximately two weeks to put peaches and berries into literally everything I make. Peaches have always been my favorite fruit, and I’m basically obsessed with this peach upside-down cake. It can be served as-is for a breakfast or brunch … More Peach Upside Down Cake

Nectarine Strawberry Almond Crumble

Last summer, I helped recipe test for a local blogger, writer, curator, food gift maker, Maggie Battista (she is the brains behind Eat Boutique). Her cookbook, Food Gift Love, which was released last fall, focuses on giftable foods and drinks. She provides simple recipes along with wrapping instructions for each. I’m a huge believer in gifting consumables, so … More Nectarine Strawberry Almond Crumble

Potato Chip Blondies

Considering my blog name, I always love when I’m able to share recipes that truly embody my love of crunch, salt and sweet. Last summer I experimented for the first time adding potato chips into a dessert…and the results pretty much spoke for themselves (delicious, unique, crunchy…salty…sweet, lol). So, it was only a matter of time … More Potato Chip Blondies

The Ultimate Chocolate Cupcakes with Buttercream Frosting

If you had asked me when I was younger (heck, if you asked me a year ago) what my favorite cupcake flavor was, I would have 100% definitely said vanilla with vanilla frosting.

Chocolate Shortbread Cookies with Peanut Butter Buttercream

  Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone had a nice (long?) weekend, and celebrated Valentine’s Day properly (booze and chocolate, obviously). Since Boston was doing it’s best Revenant impression, Andrew and I decided to stay in and make a meal together to celebrate. On the menu: filet mignon, scalloped potatoes, and roasted carrots with feta and pomegranate. And … More Chocolate Shortbread Cookies with Peanut Butter Buttercream

Blondies!

Way back when, I said I’d share my favorite Blondie recipe. Almost 10 months later, I’m making good on my promise 🙂 The reason I love this recipe is three-fold. First, you only need a single mixing bowl. The entire recipe can be made while only dirtying a couple things. Second, it literally takes minutes … More Blondies!

Apple Crumb Muffins

Fall weather has arrived in New England! I’m sure within the next 5-7 days we will be into winter weather, so I’m soaking up as much fall as I possibly can in the meantime! I’m doing everything fall-related over the next couple weeks: eating apple cider donuts, picking out pumpkins, drinking autumnal beers, and wearing … More Apple Crumb Muffins
