    Do you remember the first dessert you ever made? Mine was panna cotta. Ok ok, it wasn’t the very first dessert I EVER made, but it was the first dessert I made by myself when I started on this food journey! I remember being so proud of making it! I realized I’ve made it a couple times since, but never wrote a blog post on it! So, today I’m bringing to you a little variation on a typical panna cotta, because I made this one with healthy and amazing kefir! I love making a panna cotta in a champagne glass.…

    It’s Spooky Season! Anyone else super excited about this? Truthfully, I used to not be such a big Fall person, and definitely not a big Halloween person. Buuut, as of late, I’ve gotten more and more into it. I think it started a few years ago when I went apple picking for the first time. Then I made it a habit to go to a pumpkin patch every year, and so this year, I’m just all about Halloween too! I figured it was time to go all out on a Halloween cake. I made this delicious pumpkin layer cake, made…

  • classic strawberry rhubarb pie with flower crust

    Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

    eyedocbakes

    A classic strawberry rhubarb pie, with my easy buttery flaky pie crust, and a perfectly sweet, with a hint of tart filling! Are you a rhubarb fan? As seen in my last rhubarb post, I looove the color of rhubarb. Of course, it can be a little tart on its own, so not everyone enjoys it. However, it marries perfectly with strawberry to make a deliciously pink filled pie. For this recipe I used my classic pie dough and paired it with an easy blend of strawberries and rhubarb, to make a pie that everyone can enjoy. It’s perfect for…

    Lucky Charms Loaf Cake

    eyedocbakes

    This is the cutest, most colorful little loaf cake! It is made with limes, Lucky Charms cereal, and a little bit of Irish whisky (which you can totally leave out if you’re making this for kiddos). The cake is fluffy, and super yummy to have with tea, milk, or a cup of coffee. The glaze has a refreshing lime flavor that just adds some awesome tanginess to every bite!  When I set out to make this cake, I realized I don’t bake many green desserts! At first I thought I would make the whole cake green, but something about that…

    These are thick, bakery style, chewy cookies! Made with chocolate chunks that melt into pools of dark chocolate, and pink and red M&Ms – your Valentine will definitely be thankful if you make them these cookies!  Okay, so like most people, I love a thin, crispy chocolate chip cookie, a little underdone, so there’s a bit of chewy goodness. BUT, I wanted to take on the challenge of creating big fat cookies, so there would be room to put extra chocolate chunks and M&Ms! The great thing about these cookies is that they actually come out thick AND chewy, AAAAND…
