Yeast Pancakes


Not going to lie - these pancakes are not for everyone. They're definitely not what American's think of when they hear the word, "pancake." The site that I found them actually refers to them as Racuszki (Yeasted Polish Pancakes). I don't think I've ever had Polish food but apparently sour cream is a thing?

Chocolate Chip Espresso Cookies


We have a super terrific friend named Dai. It's one of those friendships where you don't need to see each other often nor know all the details; you fundamentally like each other - no questions asked. Dai is funny duck. He follows the beat of a different drum and doesn't get bogged down by the typical social noise. When he decided to move in order to pursue a more fulfilling job, we were all on board. We sent him off full of these caffeinated cupcakes.

Blood Orange, White Chocolate Pound Cake


It's a wonderful thing when a pretty cake actually tastes good. I grow weary of the "food porn" pictures of overly frosted confections with ridiculous combinations. Form and function should work together! That's why this little number from The Boy Who Bakes is such a welcome recipe.

It was serendipitous that I had bookmarked this cake on my to-do list when I happened upon some blood oranges at the market. Who am I to question such an obvious sign?

Decadent Brownies


This past Valentine's day, the hubby and I got the notion of hot fudge sundae brownies in our head. A daring thought, considering my weak-sauce sweet tooth. What ends up happening is I ditch the ice cream to focus on the chocolate, while my husband fends off my "picking" with a spoon. It's not a good look. I could honestly just eat straight hot fudge and almonds/walnuts- spare us both the battle- but where's the sport in that? : )

Banana Bread Waffles {Dairy-Free}


These waffles are a hybrid of recipes from Just So Tasty (Banana Bread Waffles) and Hummingbird High (Paleo Banana Bread Waffles). I do my best to stay on that Paleo game but I know my husband. When it comes to breads - do not play with him. Keep the almond and coconut flour away - he wants some some good old fashioned brunch! I would like to note, however, these Paleo Dirty Chai Pancakes did win his immediate approval.
