Best Carrot Cake EVER

I love, love, love carrot cake. Some people love things like raisins, nuts or pineapple in their cake, but I prefer it just plain and simple. This is the best non-pineapple cake I’ve found for a super moist, perfect carrot cake. I spent my birthday in quarantine this year, and I “helped” my kids make… Continue reading Best Carrot Cake EVER

Homemade Cinnamon Bread {Cinnamon Raisin Bread}

Hey guys, day one million of quarantine here, and I have made eight thousand loaves of homemade bread in the last month, because, what else is there to do right now?

Maybe I thought it was too simple to be considered a recipe. I don’t know. I do know it’s delicious. People… Continue reading Classic Banana Pudding

Homemade Glazed {and Cinnamon Sugar} Donuts

Homemade donuts are SO much easier to make than you think. My mom always made them with refrigerated biscuit dough on snow days. We’ve been having the most beautiful week of snow here in Seattle. This morning I woke up wanting to make warm donuts with my kids on day 3 of no school, but… Continue reading Homemade Glazed {and Cinnamon Sugar} Donuts

Homemade Cherry Pie Lara Bars {Gluten-free, Paleo, Whole 30, Vegan}

I’ve often pondered Lara bars, and how they get the apple pie and cherry pie ones to taste exactly like a bite of apple or cherry pastry, and now I know. Whoever came up with them is a genius. Dates. Who’d of thunk? Last week, I posted a delicious recipe for Homemade Apple Pie Lara… Continue reading Homemade Cherry Pie Lara Bars {Gluten-free, Paleo, Whole 30, Vegan}
