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...

Festivity. Even sitting in my shorts with my green, green grass outside this cake can make me feel just like Christmas. The gorgeous ruby Christmas color. The tangy cranberries we don't often eat fresh any other time of the year.    This coffee cake is about as simple as homemade can get with just five ingredients. And isn't that just what you want in the midst of the present wrapping, nightly events, frantic cookie decorating? So take a load off for a minute. Practice being present ov...

Oatmeal raisin rolls. A sweet treat on a lazy day. Not overly indulgent. You can feel a bit better about these than a cinnamon roll. But still that belly-comfort feeling of soft, warm, fresh bread kneeded by your own hands and going into your mouth.       Taken from Averie Cooks. Recipe found HERE. Add new comment...

    Dense and hearty. Filling for breakfast and made slighly healthier with the incorporation of Greek yogurt.       But mostly it's chocolate for breakfast. Chocolate and hazelnut that is. Packed in there.   Just a little soft and melty when served warm. Indulge.       Recipe taken from Wafoodie. Click HERE for the recipe link. Add new comment...

If only this could show up fresh out of the oven in my kitchen EVERY morning. (Frankly it's totally easy to make so if I got a little more organized I could almost make that happen!)       My whole family goes a little batty over this bread. It's not so sweet that you can't eat it for Monday breakfast. Instead it's light, airy, a little bit tangy and oh so good toasted with a pat of butter and some strawberry jam.       English Muffin Toastable Bread recipe found on...

Last Fall THESE happened. And then I took to long to post them and then it was summer and not pumpkin weather at all. And now it's Fall again and it's, well, perfect timing because I've got a delicioius Cinnamon Sugar Pumpkin Soft Pretzel all ready for you!     A cinnamon sugar soft pretzel from Auntie Anne's is one of my most favorite treats. Something I get only when I'm doing mall scouring, which happens less than once a year. The pretzel treat in the middle of it makes it worth it!...

There's nothing better than the smell of homemade bread rising or baking in your own kitchen. One of the best parts about living in a temperate climate is that it's never too hot to turn on the oven and it's never too cold to get your bread to rise. That's a totally legitimate reason to make (and eat) a lot of bread, right?   This bread is legitimate because it's made with whole wheat and of course, completely preservative-free. It's dense and filling and pairs well with a savory tomato-bas...

Nothing will ever top my favorite cream scone recipe. No mix-ins, no glazes. Just a classic scone with a dollop of whipped cream and a dot of raspberry jam. Perfection.    But that doesn't mean I never want to try a new scone recipe again.     These white chocolate and mocha scones are a nice twist on a classic scone. Not as flaky, buttery but who can resist that mocha flavor on a lazy Saturday morning?       White Chocolate Mocha Scones Adapted from Inside Bru...
