Red Velvet Bars With Homemade Sprinkles

So, what’d you do this weekend? I didn’t do anything special…went to the gym, did some work, avoided doing chores, had dinner at a friend’s, made my own sprinkles… You know, because making your own sprinkles is a completely sane activity. A good use of valuable weekend down-time. A great way to relax and unwind…

Cinnamon Bun Pecan Pie

It’s no secret we are pecan pie fans around my house. Actually, by “we” I mean Jason, and by “fans” I mean “he’s a fanatic who will eat pecan pie for every meal and then, to wash it down, he’ll put it in a blender and drink it like a smoothie.” Every year for his…

Cinnamon Bun Bread Pudding

Not to get all meta on you, but I really struggled with a name for these bars. (This might sound ridiculous, but I know you fellow food bloggers understand what I’m talking about!) Names are important. Which would you rather eat: Oreo Truffles, or Smooshed Cookies Mixed With Dairy Product and Mashed Into A Vaguely…

Roasted Banana Bundt Cake (and the World’s Best Frosting)

I was excited about this cake for about two hours. See, it’s a fun twist on the traditional banana bundt cake. Instead of adding banana puree to a cake batter, the banana pieces are roasted with butter and brown sugar, then the golden bruleed bananas and their syrupy juices are added to the cake. Think…

Strawberry Hand Pies

There are some compelling reasons not to make these strawberry hand pies. For one thing, it’s November. Unless you live in summery Australia, it’s getting harder and harder to find good fresh strawberries these days. (And if you do live in Australia, you might be too busy riding kangaroos to make a silly hand pie…
