Homemade Brown Sugar Cinnamon Toaster Pastries #RecipeMakeover

It’s #RecipeMakeover week… which means we’re all rethinking recipes into lighter, healthier versions. I have to admit, I would not call my usual diet healthy. I’m a super picky eater and love sweet treats. So when thinking about what food to recreate in a bit healthier way, I went right to the things I eat all […]

Cardamom Date Scones

I think I have a scone problem. I just can’t resist them! I’ve never met a scone I didn’t like. My favorite buttermilk scones are perfect with bits of fruit and chocolate in them, and they are extremely moist. But sometimes, you want a crumbier, dryer scone that is perfect for dunking in tea or […]

Orange Chocolate Chip Bread

Earlier this week, I picked up some delicious pink cara cara naval oranges at the supermarket on a whim. I usually get those mini mandarin oranges, but I’m so glad I picked something different this time around. They are delicious! If I cut one open in the kitchen, my whole house smells like citrus. Mmm. […]

Raspberry Almond Coffee Cake with Chocolate Drizzle

Do you want to make a coffee cake that is moist and delicious and easy to make? Stupid question. Of course you do! I love coffee cake because it can be breakfast, dessert, or a mid-day snack. I had some fresh raspberries in the refrigerator and needed something to do with them, so I decided […]

Cinnamon Pumpkin Pancakes

The other day I made some pumpkin bread and I had some extra pumpkin puree left. Our family loves pumpkin bread, but I wanted to use the extra pumpkin to try something new. What to make with it? I only had a 1/2 cup left. Don’t you just hate that, when you only have a […]

White Chocolate Doughnut Poppers #Choctoberfest

When Allison and I started planning #Choctoberfest with Imperial Sugar, I automatically was put in charge of coming up with some white chocolate recipes since I LOVE it and my sister is not a fan. Loving white chocolate is something I share with our dad. Growing up, my mom would have to search for white chocolate […]

Crab and Bacon Eggs Benedict

Eggs benedict is one of my favorite meals of all time. I know this is traditionally a brunch dish, but could eat it for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. I remember the first time I had eggs benedict. I was being set up on a blind date, and he invited me to brunch one Sunday morning […]

Rustic Blueberry Hand Pies with Lemon Glaze

I love using the term “rustic” when it comes to food. The chicken falls of the bone before I can slice it neatly? It’s okay. It’s rustic. The brownies get a little too crumbly? It’s okay. They’re rustic. The blueberry tarts explode in the oven? You got it – rustic! Not all of our food […]

Cream Cheese Peach Danish

Puff pastry is a great product. It is so quick and easy to use. Just thaw and it is ready to use in your recipe. Two sheets come in a standard package. I had a sheet in the freezer that needs to be used. I searched Pinterest and found a yummy-looking danish recipe on Lovely […]

Blueberry Honey Smoothie

I’m definitely on a blueberry kick. Last month, we posted a Berry Beer Cooler recipe for Secret Recipe Club, and today I’ve got a yummy blueberry smoothie recipe. I love pairing blueberries with honey for smoothies, not only because the flavors really shine through, but also because it’s a much healthier option. I love the […]

Quick Cinnamon Swirl Bread

I enjoy making quick breads. They aren’t as time consuming as a yeast bread and you have something wonderful when you are done. I was in a baking mood the other day and was searching for a new quick bread recipe. I came across a version of the cinnamon swirl bread on Something Swanky. Reading […]

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Banana muffins usually aren’t my thing. In fact, I really prefer banana flavor in three forms: Actual bananas Smoothies (like this one) Those little banana runt candies Seriously, who doesn’t like banana runts? Last year, I made some double chocolate banana scones that were pretty darn good, but most of the time, I leave the […]

Orange Chocolate Chip Scones with Vanilla-Orange Glaze

So here’s the thing… I already have a favorite scone recipe. I’ve been open to other types of scones, and have even made these double chocolate banana scones in the past. They were delicious. But nothing can hold a candle to the scone recipe I got from my friend’s grandmother. These come close. I’ll be […]

Fruity Pebbles Cookies

That’s right. Cookies with Fruity Pebbles in them. If you love this breakfast cereal, you’re going to love these cookies. Now I’m not a fan of fruity pebbles. In fact, I’m not sure if any of us Boyer ladies are a fan of them. But recently a coworker posted these on my wall on Facebook begging […]

Double Chocolate Banana Scones

I love a warm scone and tall glass of iced coffee in the morning. And trust me, I don’t love much in the morning. Until about an hour after I wake up, I speak more in growls and grunts than actual sentences, unlike my boyfriend and mother who both have the annoying gene that causes […]

The Easiest Pain Au Chocolat Recipe in the Entire World

I’m pretty sure “pain au chocolat” is French for “I’m going to be in pain if I don’t have another chocolate croissants.” Or possibly, “You’re going to be in pain if I don’t get another chocolate croissant.” My French might be a little rusty. In any case, the glorious pain au chocolat is hands down […]
