Meyer Lemon Upside-Down Cake

Earlier this week I shared this recipe for Spiced Yogurt Molasses Bread that I made for a Game of Thrones watch party. It turned out beautifully. But before I knew that, I was worried it was going to be, well, shitty. And when you're worried about shitty bread, it's good to have back-up plan. My back-up plan is always cake. [Note: This also applies to life.] It's 'common knowledge' among Game of Thrones fans that Sansa Stark is quite sweet on lemon cakes. This little factoid … [Read More]



Spiced Yogurt Molasses Bread

About this time last year, Steve and I had our first bonding moment. It was completely unromantic - in a group email for a newly-formed sand volleyball team. Steve was the odd man out - the only team member that was not an employee at my then company … [Read More]


Oatmeal Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies // made with coconut oil

I made these cookies this weekend for my Steve. My lactose intolerant Steve. Because sometimes I feel bad that my, erm, lifestyle forces him to pop Lactaid like they're Skittles. And since he's sweet enough my taste-tester, even at the threat of … [Read More]


Salted Dulce De Leche Blondies

I had a bad blog day, and it's got me down. I've got hurt feelings. It doesn't happen very often, but once in a while I get a negative comment on one of my recipes. Most often it's because I've failed to proofread a recipe and ruined somebody's … [Read More]


Mixed Berry Mascarpone Bundt Cake

I promised it, and here it is. My SXSW 2014 wrapped up into a pretty recap, all the highlights, none of the hangover. Also cake. But first SXSW, abbreviated in to list form because it was a long 10 days and this girl gets wordy. The … [Read More]


Scottish Teatime Cupcakes

I'm back! I'm alive! SXSW is officially over, thank goodness! Four days later, I'm still in recovery mode. Unfortunately, mid-way through last week I contracted a nasty cold - the product of too many handshakes & not enough hand sanitizer - … [Read More]


Anise Biscotti with Pistachios & Dark Chocolate

For the last month, Austin has felt the rumble of the giant freight train that is SXSW speeding towards the city. In the weeks before the world-famous tech conference (or infamous if you're an Austinite), one can detect a polarizing of the city's … [Read More]


Crescent Roll King Cake

Confession. I'm terrified of working with yeast. I'll take on the tallest of layer cakes and the most delicate of cookies, but when it comes to yeast, something inside me shrinks away. It's actually on my list of things to tackle in 2014, but with … [Read More]


Damn Good Tiramisu

I don't have much to say today. Which is not a promising way to start off a blog post, I know. But I'm completely exhausted. After an almost 12 hour day at work, then a 6 mile run, my brain is running on low. The thought crossed my mind to go over … [Read More]
