Homemade Chocolate Egg Creams

Homemade Chocolate Egg Cream

Egg creams are a classic soda fountain drink that dates back to the pharmacies/soda fountains of the late 19th century. The drink’s origins are actually unknown, but there are plenty of theories out there, including the idea that the name arose from the mispronunciation of the phrase “a cream.” Most of the mystery stems from the fact that egg creams, despite the name, actually include ...

Bourbon Banana Bread

Bourbon Banana Bread

Bananas go exceptionally well with spirits, particularly with rum and bourbon. Bananas foster is a great example of a decadent – and delicious – dessert that combines bananas with a bit of booze, but it’s not the only recipe out there for those of you who, like me, enjoy doing some baking with spirits. This Bourbon Banana Bread uses a very generous dose of bourbon ... Read More »

The Best Coconut Cupcakes

The Best Fluffy Coconut Cupcakes

Coconut is one of my favorite flavors and – while it is true that I have a lot of favorite flavors! – that means that I have a very hard time walking away from a baked good that contains coconut. It also means that I have eaten a lot of not-so-great coconut baked goods over the years, from cookies that are too dense to cakes ... Read More »

One of my favorite uses for sweetened condensed milk is no churn ice cream.

I find that it is hard to pick a favorite, but I know that I can always fall back onto a batch of freshly baked scones when I can’t make up my mind. These ... Read More »

Strawberry Belgian Waffles

Strawberry Belgian Waffles

Belgian waffles are often served with a dollop of whipped cream and a pile of fresh fruit or berries. There is no doubt that berries are delicious with waffles – but I simply don’t think that the waffle always needs to be made plain. These Strawberry Belgian Waffles are made with the fruit inside, so every bite packs plenty of delicious strawberry flavor, whether you ... Read More »

Orange Cranberry Almond Bread

Orange Cranberry Almond Bread

I’ve been playing around with the new White Lily flour blends lately, which combine wheat flour with grape seed flour for a unique (and tasty) alternative to plain flour in baked goods. One of their newest additions to their line of premium flours is Wheat & Almond Flour Blend, which blends a small amount of almonds into their non-GMO wheat flour. The almonds bring in ...

Caramel Lemon Pie

Caramel Lemon Pie

When I first heard about the limited edition flavors of sweetened condensed milk that Eagle Brand was releasing, I couldn’t wait to try them out. Once I tasted the chocolate and the caramel, I knew that there were lots of possibilities for bringing these flavors into some of my favorite desserts that already use sweetened condensed milk. One sweetened condensed milk that everyone is familiar ... Read More »
