Browned butter is one of those ingredients that you really can’t go wrong with. It is delicious and improves just about anything that you might add it to by giving it a nutty and subtly addictive quality.

Watermelon Cupcakes

There are few things that are more refreshing on a very hot summer day than a slice of cool, sweet watermelon. It’s even better if you top it with a sprinkle of sea salt to make the melon seem even juicier.

Banana Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Banana Cupcakes with a Bite

But even though you can eat it for dessert, it’s not really the same as having a nice slice of cake or a good cupcake. Banana bread is heavier and tends to be less ... Read More »

Candy Corn Cupcakes

Mini Candy Corn Cupcakes!

Candy corn are one of the most iconic Halloween candies out there. Some people love them, and some people hate them, but everyone seems to know exactly what the orange, yellow and white triangular candies are. I happen to be a fan of the slightly honey-flavored fondant candies, and put them out in candy jars both as a snack and for their colorful look. These ... Read More »
