Vegan Cinnamon Rolls

I made these a couple weeks ago. Since then, I’ve felt good, bad, tired, awake, tipsy, distracted, worried, fine, super happy, super anxious, lucky, weird, cold, hot, fast and slow. I invested in high-waisted pants because what if I died tomorrow?! I’d want to die in cute pants. I put some nail business on my credit card, ate sliders like cookies, drank pink wine, bonded with my mom, bought a “werk it” bracelet, slept to…

Scones Forever

Because breakfast wins best meal award*. (*Based on the dessert-as-a-meal-thing, obvz.) Because my countertops are covered with dishes and my bed is covered with laundry. Because my car seats are covered in sesame seeds from emergency bagel-ing on the regular. Because I’m good at running out of milk, cereal, bread for toasting, and general breakfast foods. Because I took a 2-hour nap Saturday and then ran out of daylight. Because my favorite cowboy boots are…

Glazed Donuts

Donuts are a gateway food. I mean, every time someone brings donuts to work, or to a photo shoot, I keep it cool and (almost always) contain myself. It’s because I know that in my heart I just want to eat at least three of them. (A sprinkle one, a chocolate one, and a blueberry one.) So I finally made them! With a variety of glazes, to boot. So you better believe I ate three.…

Malted Pumpkin Muffins

I’m not ready for December. You see, my Christmas spirit isn’t intact. My only decoration is this wreath. My only form of celebrating is brewing a cinnamon stick with my coffee. I tried to listen to the She & Him Christmas album and it made me feel weird. I had to switch to Tegan and Sara. Jeez, you guys! What’s a girl to do? I guess, I’ll just keep thinking it’s fall until February! I’m…

Chocolate Chip Pancake Mini Muffins with a Brown Butter Maple Glaze

Because dessert needs to happen with a picnic lunch, and because I had a bunch of hay in my boots when I got home. You see, Friday, I took the day off and headed to Upland Hills Farms. My friend’s niece had a field trip, so a couple of us ladies went too! We made a giant Italian sandwich and a tasty orzo salad for our picnic lunch. And since this particular little girl loves…

Almond Mini Donuts + Cherry Glaze

Because when I was seven I picked pink earrings over my birth stone. Because pink foods are always a party.┬áBecause cherries are the sole reason these are pink. Because when things are mini you can eat fifteen. Because I love you. These guys are almond-y where the donuts are concerned and tartly cherry where the pink glaze is concerned. But don’t be concerned, these will make your heart smile. Disclaimer: I blame the fact that…

Triple Chocolate Scones with Orange Icing

I have holes in the right elbow of most of my sweaters. I’m pretty much a ragamuffin because I keep wearing hole-y things. I suppose the only thing to do to avoid my elbow drama is to make scones. These scones will distract you from your ragamuffin ways and get your focus more on things like how to eat breakfast in a brownie outfit. Heart-shaped scones are totally encouraged all year. But since Valentine’s Day…

Sour Cream Coffee Cake

My mom made all the time when I was growing up. I love the memories as much as I love the cinnamon-sugary goodness. Jake likes this coffee cake because he says it taste like a donut. Basically, if you like happy breakfast memories, cinnamon-sugar, and donuts, you’ll la la love this. P.S. I just want you guys to know that this is one of the best coffee cakes in the whole world. And that’s why…

Beer Spice Cake + Brown Butter Glaze

What do you do when you are in a funk? I find that there a few things I do. I cheer myself up by wearing my most favorite high-healed clogs that make boring outfits look hip. Walking Elliot always helps. In those minutes we are outside and he’s prancy-walking and I’m girly-walking, things are good. Putting beer in cake and browning butter for a glaze helps too. My day got a lot better once this…
