Rainy Day Matcha Latte

The title of this recipe¬†should¬†be “Copycat Dunkin Donuts Frozen Matcha Latte” because DD directly inspired me to make this drink. I now think that frozen matchas far surpass the iced or hot versions of this latte, and you’ll soon see (or taste) why. Somehow this drink is creamy, cold, sweet, and earthy all at the…

Strawberry Banana Smoothie

Possibly the most well known at-home smoothie flavor is Strawberry Banana. It’s pretty hard to mess this recipe up as long as you have a base (milk, juice, etc.) and the fruit. Its simplicity is what makes it so easy to customize or recreate! While using fresh strawberries sounds like it would be the better…

Mini Dessert Crepes

One woman’s dessert is another woman’s breakfast. For me, a sweet crepe can be a substitute for any meal of the day, but especially in the morning (because I can convince myself that sweet crepes are “close enough” to pancakes). You can’t tell me that freshly sliced fruit, whipped cream and Nutella inside of a…

Apple Ricotta Cake

This amazing cake is similar to a Jewish Apple Cake. The texture is very soft and moist (unlike the Irish Apple Cake that was posted a long time ago) and the apples are incredibly tender and still juicy even when they’re baked. Each bite is the perfect balance of soft cake and moist fruit. One…

Berry Pineapple Smoothie

Everyone needs a bit of sunshine right now… in the midst of all of the recent stress and worry from the corona virus I think that eating healthy and creating refreshing treats for yourself is important for morale. This smoothie is really clean and fun; it has a bright, tart flavor from the pineapple and…

A Twist on Tres Leches

I find that my most common complaint about cakes is that they are too dry. When I have a slice of cake at a restaurant it’s always crumbly and too sweet, and even most grocery store bakery cakes aren’t moist. When I can’t bake it myself I always turn to two cakes that are guaranteed…

Pumpkin Praline Pie

During this time of year (my favorite of all) there are some of the best desserts made in households across America: pumpkin pie and pecan pie. At Christmas Dinner there are so many desserts that even though you want to try a slice of all of them you don’t have enough room, which got me…

Cozy Eggnog Latte

Happy Holidays! It seems like it would be much simpler to just go to Starbucks for a coffee rather than making one of their “fancy” drinks yourself… but you’re spending $5 on something you could make better at home in 10 minutes. Treat yourself to staying in this time and making your own sweet coffee…
