Rum Cake From Scratch |

Rum Cake (From Scratch!)

Blueberry Cake

Hey friends!  Ali, here.  I’m really excited to introduce you to one of the coolest 15-year-olds I know, who collaborated with me as the baker/writer/photographer behind today’s post.  Her name is Maya, and we have gone to church together for years.  But I only recently found out that —...

Vegan Gluten-Free Carrot Cake

This past Friday night was meant for celebrating. The weather was sit-out-on-the-deck-in-the-cool-evening-breeze perfection.  Friends gathered from all around the city with chips and salsa and salads and popcorn and laughter and stories to share.  The fire pit was aflame.  The candles were lit on this (gluten free and vegan) carrot...

Flourless Chocolate Cake |

3-Ingredient Flourless Chocolate Cake

This past Valentine’s Day, I decided to remake a golden oldie from the blog to share with my friends.  Partly because it was super easy.  Partly because it’s gluten-free.  And partly because, well, it’s about as chocolatey as you can possibly get. We’re talking about flourless chocolate cake, people!...

Guinness Chocolate Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Happy Guinness Week! That’s right.  Instead of gearing up for St. Patrick’s Day with the usual corned beef and cabbage recipes, I have decided to celebrate instead with one of my other Irish favorites — Guinness.  Not the world records, the stout.  :) (Ok, I’m watching “Friends” as I...

Mini Flourless Chocolate Cakes

Whenever anyone asks me for a Valentine’s dessert recipe recommendation, my first response has always been this flourless chocolate cake.  I posted it on the blog years ago, but it is still one of my all-time favs — partly because it’s easy to make and only calls for three...

Raw Carrot Cake |

Raw Carrot Cake With Cashew Vanilla Frosting

My friend, Rachel, was one of my main inspirations for learning more about eating raw. Last year she decided to give up cooked food and go raw for Lent.  During the process, I was so impressed by her commitment to try tons of new raw recipes each week, and...

Black Forest Trifles

I am my father’s daughter — I adore fresh bing cherries. And I am my mother’s daughter — I love a good chocolate cake! So when I not-surprisingly found myself with leftover chocolate cupcakes and a fridge full of fabulous bing cherries this summer, I decided to go “Black...

Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Sour Cream Coffee Cake

One of the definite highlights of my college years was getting to be roommates with my friend, Natalie.  In addition to being a wonderful friend, and my first serious walking buddy (seriously – we lived together during the year I had to stop running, and she graciously gave up...
