Banana Bread

A good banana bread recipe is essential to any family recipe book, just like the perfect chocolate chip cookie. Look no further if you were searching for one! This banana bread is moist, soft, sweet, and nutty. The pineapple pieces and shredded coconut add a fun tropical note that will make you wonder why banana…

Perfect Peach Pie

Peaches may not be in season but I feel like my peach pie recipe should have been on here a long time ago. Hands down it is THE BEST pie out there and probably tied for my favorite dessert of all time. It’s simple, sweet, and soft ( just like the fruit that goes inside…

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…

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…
