Boo Brownie Cake

Halloween may not be my holiday, but I love an excuse to bake. Things have been super busy. In the wee hours, I scroll through Pinterest and tap my husband's shoulder to show him all the cool baking ideas that inspire me.  I don't bake to eat cake and cookies (though that's not a bad perk). It's more of an accessible creative outlet. Hence, I was tickled pink by a pink ghost cake from Erin Bakes.

The Golden Ghouls {Halloween Italian Breakfast Cookies}

These silly cookies were inspired by some Pumpkin Biscotti that I recently made. I love decorating with little ghosts because they are easy to create and are on the cuter side of the Halloween spectrum. The goal was to decorate a cookie quickly and with minimal effort. Shortbread was a close contender but then I found this recipe for "Italian Coffee Cookies." And thus the Golden Ghouls were formed.

The short one is definitely Sophia.

Banana Bread with Walnuts and Tahini


This lovely loaf was made because we had a crazy amount of super ripe bananas in the house. When in doubt with banana - make a loaf! At the same time, I wanted to try something new - hence this recipe. I am eager to try anything with sesame.

Pumpkin Biscotti


While Halloween isn't my jam, fall certainly is my favorite time of year. Every season has it's unique flavor and memories. There are so many thing to love. One of my favorites is the crispness of the autumn air. The subtle burn in your throat and lungs from the chill after running. It's exciting and awakening. Ah fall.

Vietnamese Coffee Buns

If you're like me, the name of these cinnamon rolls is what lured you in. I am totally in love with Vietnamese Iced Coffee as you can clearly see by this humble blog's recipe selection (Vietnamese Iced Coffee Cupcakes, Vietnamese Coffee Eclairs, and Vietnamese Coffee Sundaes). It's a drink that I can relate to - the anger of the coffee paired with the sweetness of the condensed milk. One part sugar, one part spice.
