    If you have no self control when it comes to pumpkin, or chocolate, or muffins, this recipe is for you. It’s a small batch recipe – it makes only 6 muffins! But trust me, it hits the spot! These are the fluffiest, softest muffins, which feel so light as air, that they are a little too easy to eat – good thing there are only gonna be 6 of them. No one’s stopping you from making them again though, just sayin. I also dipped the muffin tops into my butterscotch sauce – and the amazing factor just doubles.  Now, for…

    If you love Fall, but you’re still soaking in some of those summer vibes, this is the easy peasy dessert you should make this week! I was able to get my hands on some end of summer peaches! I wanted regular peaches, but they had white peaches, so why not? This dessert works with either. And you know  that streusel you usually reserve for blueberry muffins, or my carrot cake? I added brown butter to it, and it has this great nutty, buttery cinammony flavor that is amaaaazing! Top with some fresh whipped cream and pomegranate arils/berries, and you’re all…

I actually have a little bit of history with this dessert! I first tried these about a decade ago when I visited Portugal.
