Strawberry Shortcake Romanoff

romanoff 4

It’s getting close to summer, which means my refrigerator is stocked with fresh berries and my smoothie game has been on point. I even planted a couple of strawberry bushes this year, though so far I’ve only harvested about three. You’re going to need a lot more than that to make this adult take on strawberry shortcake, which is layered with soft brown sugar biscuits, juicy marinated strawberries, and sweetened whipped cream. Oh, and did I mention there’s booze in it?  😉   This[Read more]

MANLY Cheese and Herb Beer Bread

I was recently challenged to share a recipe that is not only easy, but manly. And well, what could be more manly than BEER? Nothing. It’s how chest hair is born. What I love about beer bread is that it takes just a handful of ingredients, you can make the dough in one bowl, and it cooks up in no time at all. Just mix and bake. Simple as that. You can also throw in any add ins that strike your[Read more]

Hello friends! Sorry for the delay in posting, I recently got two of my wisdom teeth pulled (about 10 years too late amirite) and so I’ve felt a bit groggy from the pain meds. But I’ve bounced back! And now I have for you this super fun and colorful dessert idea: Tropical Tres Leches. My neighbor turned me on to this cake a couple of years ago, and guys—I can’t stop eating it. I legitimately crave it. There are times[Read more]

Easy Two Ingredient Cheesy Breadsticks

Hey everyone! I have quite the quick recipe for you today. 🙂 You see, I was craving something flaky, buttery, and cheesy to go along with some spaghetti I was making, and I remembered that I had an *entire* package of pre-made puff pastry dough in my freezer(!). Reasons why this isn’t baking: I didn’t actually make the puff pastry. Reasons why this IS baking: I put it in the oven.  This is how I rationalize things before I post[Read more]

Baked Blueberry Donuts with Lemon, Maple, or Blueberry Glaze!

My neighbors bought me some donut pans for Christmas. It is now March. It is time!  May I present to you some lovely blueberry baked donuts?  I tried using the pans just once before this. I had some leftover chocolate cake batter from my favorite chocolate cake recipe of all time, but it produced such delicate donuts that they broke apart as I tried to remove them from the pan! I sort of have an aversion toward cake donuts anyway.[Read more]
