Raspberries are my favorite berry; they are tart, sweet, and full of flavor (and personality!). They are not used universally in recipes unlike strawberries and blueberries, but I think they are a great addition to many desserts especially ones with chocolate!
I picked nine recipe ideas to share with you all today. All of them look so delicious and I can't wait to try out at least some of these recipes in the coming months! The one I am most excited to try is the cookies (#2) because it is the only recipe I've never seen before today.
Hope you all are having a great week!
Bundt cakes are a favorite at home and it is amazing to see all the different types people have created all over the world. I have picked a few to share with you all. They all look delicious and seem relatively simple which is all the more reason to give them a try!
Hope you all have a great week!
Once spring arrives, it is time for fresh and bold flavors, especially in the dessert department! Lemon is one of my all-time favorite flavors, especially for sweets. I have complied a few favorites from Pinterest to share with you all.
#4 and #7 are probably my favorites, Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes sound too good to be true, maybe it is about time that I make them. Any recipe recommendations?
The Lemon Cake Roll looks amazing as well. Cake rolls are an old favorite of mine and I think this one would be perfect for a spring barbecue or picnic! #3 is Lemon Meringue Fudge, a twist on the classic chocolate fudge, which is a great idea especially for people who are not chcocolate lovers (I don't fall into that category!) but I'd love to try this as well sometime soon.
Hope you all have an amazing week! As always, comments, questions, and suggestions are always welcome!
And if you have recipe recommendations for any of the desserts above or any other spring-time dessert, please let me know!
Last week, we went to Bruxie for breakfast and as you can see, we all went for a little something sweet. I got the Chocolate Filled Liege. A liege is similar to a Belgian waffle and is described on the Bruxie website as a more dense sweet breakfast pastry with chunks of pearl sugar that caramelizes when in the waffle iron. It was filled with Belgian dark chocolate. Overall, it was delicious, the pearl sugar created a crisp outer layer to compliment the warm dark chocolate inside. The waffle itself was good as well, though I felt it could have used a minute or two more in the waffle iron.
And for those of you who prefer savory waffles, Bruxie has numerous options for you! Actually, the majority of the items on their menu are savory, we just chose to go the sweet route that day.
Hope everyone is having a great week so far!
So sorry I didn't post here last week, college has been really hectic with so many projects and such. How has fall been treating you? Here in California, I feel like we are switching between summer and winter weather, so we haven't exactly had any fall weather yet.
As you all know, I have a huge sweet tooth! Most of my favorite fall desserts have pumpkin, which is surprising to me now because I didn’t really like pumpkin as a child. Hoping to make some of these soon and share with you.
Let me know in the comments below what your favorite fall desserts are. Hope you all have a great week!
Fall 2015 is almost here, yet everyone seems to have gotten into "fall mode" weeks ago! With fall events coming up, I started looking for cake inspiration. My favorite is the plum and burnt orange themed cake (#1), since it is a unusual color combination. The rest, of course are beautiful as well, and the last one (#5) is great if you love pumpkins!
What fall events are you most excited for?
I hope all of you had a great week! Today's post is my top five favorites items for breakfast on those days where mornings are rushed and time isn't on your side. I personally love a full breakfast, but unfortunately, that isn't always possible. Eating a good cereal or Greek yogurt is a great way to start a busy day, so below I've included pictures of my favorites for you guys.
Enjoy your weekend and I'll see you guys next week!
As you guys may know, I love decorating cakes with fondant! I took a introductory cake decorating elective in 8th grade and really enjoyed it. I'm planning to try out some new techniques this year. After browsing on Pinterest, looking through hundreds of designs, I found a few favorites.
This summer has been a wonderful one in the garden, full of color and a generous amount of fruits. The two that I have been the most excited about have to be the strawberry guavas and the grapes. Strawberry guavas are such a unique fruit, they are a combination of sweet, tart, fleshy and firm. They are generally small in size yet packed with a lot of flavor. A bowl of these is sure to finish fast.
Grapes are a favorite of mine on those extremely warm days where being cool and refreshed is a luxury. Grapes, especially if they are chilled, deliver that same sense of cool refreshment that say a cold glass of lemonade would, without the added sugar.
What are your summer fruit favorites?
So, there's really not much to tell. I'm a person of many interests, and enjoy talking to others about theirs.
