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…

Treat yourself to staying in this time and making your own sweet coffee…

Classic Chip Cookies

A good chocolate chip cookie after a long day (or for breakfast… or for a snack… or literally any time) is one of the best things in the world. This recipe isn’t labeled “chocolate chip cookies” for a reason; you can substitute any chip and it will still be delicious. Milk, white, or dark chocolate,…
