I've made soft pretzels several times and loved them. But the rolling and twisting is definitely a bit time consuming. So when this pretzel bread popped up in my Pinterest feed I was intrigued. All of the taste with a lot less work? This one delivers and I couldn't decide which is better - the actual pretzel or this bread. So next time you're making a bowl of hearty soup, try this out on the side!     For the recipe from Joy Food Sunshine click HERE.   Add new comment...

I dodn't have high expectations these little biscuits but I should have! I pulled them from the oven just a bit underdone and gooey and then soaked them in the sweet glaze. Hot and steaming, with bursting berries, these were quite the Saturday morning treat!     Thanks LaLa Delicious! Click HERE for the recipe.  Add new comment...

You guys! Cinnamon rolls are in my top three treats in life! I LOVE them! So many memories of Sunday mornings with my mom bring a plate to the table or standing on a stool next to Salome, someone who helped at our house, where she let me punch the dough down between rises.   I've tried countless recipes and of course we always scarf them down but I think I finally found the perfect dough recipe for me ... at least for Quito! The layers stay thick but oh so soft and it's the perfect amount o...

Can I tell you one of the best parts about pull-apart breads? There is no portion size! You can't tell if you've eaten one roll, two or 6. (Okay maybe that's the best and worst thing about them). They are addictive and you just. keep. pulling. at. them.  This one is so endearingly fall. Gooey and sweetly spicy and just what you need when three RCs come over to to cuddle in blankets on your couch.     Taken from Will Cook for Smiles.

In Summer I adore fresh berries and a perfect use for them is in strawberry almond scones and blackberry scones. In Winter a white chocolate mocha scone can really hit the spot. It's indulgent, comfort food. In Spring a campfire scone can warm you up when there is still a chill in the air. But Fall just might be my favorite time of year for scones. I recommend oatmeal crunch scones with maple glaze, pumpkin pecan scones or maple pecan scones.  A new Fall favorite? These Apple Pie Scone...

Sprinkles are an easy way to turn anything festive! Throw some on top of imperfect cupcakes and suddenly they are party worthy. Add them to ice cream and you've got the start of a sundae. Sprinkle them on your late night hot cocoa with whipped cream and you've got a real indulgence. And when you put them on top of a loaf cake, along with a light sprinkling of streusel, you have an easy birthday-worthy breakfast or party treat to share.     Taken from Well Floured.

I've made quite a number of pumpkin muffins in my life but after trying these out, they quickly replaced all others as the favorite!   They have it all: a strong, spicy flavor, a deliciously moist base, crumbly streusel perfection and a glaze.   The glaze is where it's at. Maple and pumpkin were just meant to be paired together into perfect autumn goodness.      Now I know it's a long time til Autumn but in case you are craving a bit of cold air, leaves under your feet o...

When I used to work at a domestic violence agency, I was part of a coalition to stop violence in the neighborhood. We met monthly and more often than not the facilitator would have a box of bagels from Panera. The Cinnamon Crunch Bagel was always my go-to and sometimes I'd eat two just because they are so good!     Clearly I have no Panera close to me now so I decided to try my own hand at a good substitute.     I obviously need to work on my hole-making skills in the bagel w...
