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]

How to Make Crepes

crepes f

I was craving crepes this week. I had a really amazing one last weekend at a little place in Austin called Crepe Crazy. The owners and staff are all deaf, which is pretty cool. You can read more about them here. The crepe I got was tiramisu flavored. It was amazing. It even had espresso-soaked ladyfingers in it.  Crepes are so in right now. I swear to you, they are everywhere. There is a little place by my house that[Read more]

How to Make Kolaches: Texas Style

When I first moved to Texas I remember being very perplexed by the cuisine. Specifically breakfast foods. For example, “steak and eggs” made no sense to me since steak was clearly a dinner food. And if we’re all just supposed to accept that it’s proper to eat steak for breakfast, then why is “chicken and waffles” served for dinner? So confusing. 😛 Don’t even get me started on “chicken fried steak” and the uber-redundant “chicken fried chicken.” But today’s post is[Read more]

Cinnamon Apple Kuchen

Finally, my first apple dessert of the fall! I actually had yet another pumpkin recipe in the queue but I bumped this one forward because I don’t want people to get all pumpkined out. Plus it’s delicious! What you see before you is a kuchen. Apparently, that is the German word for cake. If I had describe it, it’s more like a coffee cake in that it starts off with a sweet dough base and then is packed with juicy[Read more]

White Chocolate Chip Cranberry Scones

Today, I bring to you salvation. Or should I say salivation. Because these scones are packed with more cranberries than the amount of references to the band that I plan to make in this post. Salvation was one of those references. Great song. Dried cranberries aren’t the only feature of this scone though—oh no—I have also included some white chocolate chips, chopped pecans (simply leave out if you have a nut allergy) and white chocolate drizzle. They are the scones[Read more]

Blueberry Crumble Scones: Your New Religion

Hello lovers. You may remember how a while back I posted a recipe for some delicious Cheesy Chive-y Scones. I don’t make savory scones too often, but when I do they are usually packed with cheese and fresh herbs just like the scone gods intended. You don’t want to upset the scone gods. Today though, I’m taking a break from the savory to share with you a super easy blueberry scone complete with a sweet, oat-y crumb topping. Warning: These scones[Read more]
