Brown Butter Blueberry Apricot Loaf

Apricot Blueberry Loaf

One of the reasons that vanilla baked goods are often thought of as being “plain” is that they lack the pops of color that you might find in other foods, like Funfetti cakes, blueberry muffins or chocolate chip cookies and quick breads. I love “plain” vanilla goodies, but I’ll admit that it is nice to get some color into your baked goods, too. Adding berries, ... Read More »

Chocolate Chip Cookies with Walnuts and Apricots

Chocolate Chip Cookies with Apricots and Walnuts

One way to breathe some new life into a simple chocolate chip cookie recipe is to start by adding some new mix-ins to the cookie dough. Nuts will add crunch and a little extra flavor, but adding dried fruit can really change the overall taste of the cookie.

Apricots n’ Cream Upside Down Cake

Apricots n' Cream Upside Down Cake

Blueberry Apricot Muffins

Blueberry Apricot Muffins

When all kinds of fruits come into season at around the same time, I end up trying to cram all kinds of things into each dish I make. It takes a lot of editing to pick out one or two fruits to include in the final result, but it’s necessary editing as no one really wants fruit salad muffins regardless of how delicious a fruit ...

Apricot Oat Scones

Apricot Oat Scones

Scones are one food that can illicit surprisingly strong reactions from people. Some people love them (usually people who have had good scones) and others hate them (usually people who have had bad scones. Some like a traditional scone that wants to be topped with jam and cream, others want something more tender, moist and sweet on its own, a cross between a muffin and ... Read More »
