      “Part of the secret of success in life is to eat what you like” -Mark Twain Well that sure is some pleasant advice! What if I like eating pie? Can I eat all the pie?? The perfect solution – bake mini galettes, throw in some fruit, and it’s kinda healthy too, right? 🙂 What is a galette? This is a French term for, usually, a flat, round, flaky pastry, often made of pie crust, but baked without a pie pan. It can be savory or sweet – and this one is definitely sweet! This galette recipe includes loquats, which…

    eyedocbakes

      “When life gives you lemons…bake cupcakes”. Actually, that’s not really a quote. You should just always bake cupcakes…because…cupcakes! I don’t have as much experience with gluten free, so I was afraid these would taste different than my normal cupcakes – but, everyone loved them! They are soft, and quite lemon-y, but also sweet. The lemons were picked fresh and smell divine as you work with them in your kitchen!   Gluten Free Lemon Cupcakes 1 cup gluten free flour or ¾ cup coconut flour 1 tsp baking powder Pinch of salt ½ cup butter ¾ cup granulated sugar 2…

  • Chocolate, Raspberry, and Vanilla Neapolitan Mousse Cake

    eyedocbakes

      “A party without cake is just a meeting” -Julia Childs The wisdom of Julia Childs – so true though! Let’s talk about mousse and Neapolitan for a second. Mousse is a French dessert that is sooo light and airy, while Neapolitan is originally an Italian ice cream of three different flavors – usually chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla. So basically, this cake combines the awesomeness of both of those things, and mixes it up a bit. You get a cake that is so light it almost doesn’t feel like you’re eating cake – according to my taste testers who loved this…

  • Rose Swirl Meringues

      “Roses are red, violets are blue, sugar is sweet, and so are you!”   More like so are these cute little meringues! So there are 3 types of meringue – French, Swiss, and Italian. These are based on the Swiss kind, because the egg whites are heated over a double boiler. Anywho, I definitely recommend making these because they’re easy to make, Fat Free (!), can be eaten as a cookie on their own, or used to decorate cookies and cupcakes. They’re perfect for any old day, or a special day, like a bridal shower, wedding, or anything pretty!…
