One Bowl Mini Banana Breads (with Chocolate Chips. Obvi.)

You wanna know something funny? I started this post in October. October. Of 2017. Which makes sense because that is when my life legitimately exploded. Baby girl was almost 2 months old and was starting to eat more and get all active on me after about 8 weeks of, quite frankly, adorable lumpiness, Nutcracker was in…

Chocolate Babka: Two Day Bake Edition

Hello all! Greetings from the world of a new mom! Things are crazy and wonderful. Our little honey is about 6 weeks old and we are absolutely in love with her. We are also completely sleep deprived and occasionally forget to eat, but hey. Such is life. It’s totally worth it in every possible way….

Zucchini Muffins

Greetings from my kitchen! It is the almost middle of August which means it’s almost the end of August which means it’s almost Fall! Fall! It’s my favorite. With fall comes many things. Leggings and dresses. Boots. Pretty Leaves. All the things a basic chick like me lives for. Except Pumpkin Spice Lattes. Not my…

Cinnamon Roll Coffee Cake: The Easiest Thing Ever. Seriously.

Hey hey hey! Greetings from our ranch house in the burbs! We are getting closer to our little nugget’s entrance into this world and are crazy excited as well as completely awed by all the love in our lives. In the last few weeks, we have just been overwhelmed by the generosity and joy in…

Chocolate Chip Scones: Big Batch Baking Edition!

Good day all! Let’s have a summer story. Over 4th of July, my brother and his family came to visit from New York. They are pretty awesome. My bro, his wife and their almost 8-year-old are basically the smartest people I know and we had a great time hanging out, playing board games and catching…

Marshmallow Brownies!

Hello all! This summer, I have been helping out at the ballet company where I work with their summer intensive. Almost 200 dancers from all over the country came to take class for 5 weeks. My job was basically as an administrative assistant, but it was super fun and exhausting. This week was our last…

Lemon Squares. Because Summer.

It is summer. Unequivocally summer. Also, I most definitely had to look up how to spell “unequivocally”. Anyway, around this time of year, I like to make things that I normally wouldn’t make. I find myself going to picnics, barbecues, showers of all kinds and just general parties where my go to chocolate filled treats…

Chocolate Dipped Shortbread

Hello from my not as tiny kitchen! So, I’ve been on like, a 6 month hiatus from this thing and it’s been driving me crazy. So much has happened since last we met and I’m happy as all get out that I’m getting back into the baking game. Eric and I bought a house, moved…

Mini Oreo Cheesecakes

So. The people who read this grand experiment of carbs and goodness are also mostly friends and family on the social medias. As a result, if you’re reading this you probably already know that Eric and I are expecting our first baby in August! We’re crazy excited and couldn’t be more terrified. I think that’s…

Honey Apple Challah

Hey there kiddos! Greetings from my tiny kitchen! Ok. I know. This is two apple bakes in as many weeks. But listen. This bread has been on my list for at least a year. Maybe more. I finally had a whole day off and the right light and the right amount of energy and I just…

Apple Donut Muffins

Hi ho bakerinos! Life is good in my tiny kitchen and today is a flashback to Christmas. Cause remember? Busy and tired and sick and just didn’t update life for a while. I really like Christmas. I love my family and the food (obviously) and I love watching all my Christmas movies. My brothers and…

Derby Pie: Cause Thanksgiving

Hey guys, so here’s the thing. I started this post in the beginning of December. I was all excited about it and I was jamming on this post and then I kind of had a show to run and it took over my life for a while. I was super tired and kind of sick…

Pumpkin Bread Bites! #basicedition

Greetings from my tiny kitchen! I trust this mid November week is treating all of you well! I have been enjoying the unseasonably warm weather here in Kansas City as well as books, lots of student rehearsals for The Nutcracker, and my favorite pair of gray booties. Even though the sun outside is screaming September, I…

Blondies! The mini Webisode!

You guys. It has been a big freaking week! Halloween, costume fittings for Nutcracker and the Cubs were in the World Series. (Also, they won! Hooray!) I knew I needed some serious snackage to handle all the excitement. I taught on Halloween and was in dire need of some baking time to mellow out after…

Red Velvet Brownies

Hey ya’ll! Welcome back to my tiny kitchen! Been thinking about how pretty the trees are getting here in Kansas City and really wanted to bust out something equally lovely for the blog. Something beautiful, elegant and well coiffed. Well friends of the internet, I failed at making something as gorgeous as the fall trees….

Ginger Peach Scones

Hey ya’ll. It’s fall and that means it’s Ladies’ Season. Not because there are handsome hunks lining the streets or anything. It isn’t raining men. None of that nonsense. It’s Ladies’ Season cause fashion. Because this is Han Solo Fashion season. Where all the skinny jeans-tucked into boots-accessorized with puffy vests-and holding a pumpkin spiced…

Banana Pecan Muffins

Let’s chat you guys. Let’s chat about our childhood. Not in a shrinky get-all-teary-eyed-and-tell-me-why-relationships-in-your-20s-were-impossible kind of way. In a what-food-makes-you-sigh-with-happiness-and-pure-joy kind of way. For me, spaghetti sauce bubbling away all day makes me think of home. Homemade bread is a surefire way to my heart. Banana baked anything will immediately give me a warm fuzzy…

Carmelitas

So, you know when you watch a TV show or a movie and there is a super mysterious character and you’re like, “Hey. That guy/girl. He’s/She’s something interesting. He’s/She’s got a back story.” For some time now, I have shared these recipes and kitchen experiments with you and have talked about my standing mixer, Carmelita….

Tiramisu Amazeballs!

Story time! Hubs and I were at one of our favorite coffee shops last week and noticed a girl walk in with several samples of what looked like delicious goodies. Being totally normal and not at all creepy, I stared at her trays like a drooling wolf watching a solo limping deer. We happen to…

Cinnamon Raisin Bread

Greetings from the tiny kitchen! So this week, I wanted to get back to bread. I. Love. Bread. I do actually. So, I decided to ask my wonderful husband if he had any ideas. Without hesitation, he responded with Cinnamon Raisin Bread. This bread has everything! A sweet and crunchy crust, warm soothing cinnamon, and…
