Traditional Irish Soda Bread

Traditional Irish Soda Bread

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Hope you’re all having a good time today eating Irish Soda Bread, green bagels, drinking Guinness (or Guinness floats – check back tomorrow for how to use up your leftover beer!), maybe eating some of these Guinness & Bailey’s cupcakes. I […]

Pumpkin Bread [Mini Loaves]

Pumpkin Bread [Mini Loaves]

I love pumpkin bread but I don’t nearly make it enough. I made it a few years ago and a draft of the recipe has been sitting in my drafts folder since Fall 2012. Yes. It’s taken me almost 2 1/2 years to finally post […]

Cheddar & Bacon Buttermilk Drop Biscuits

Cheddar & Bacon Buttermilk Drop Biscuits

What can be more delicious than bacon and cheddar cheese married inside some sort of doughy biscuit? Apparently not much. I’ve never made biscuits before, which is strange because I love carbs. They’ve always seemed a little intimidating, like pie crust, because you want it […]

Monkey Bread

Monkey Bread

I have no idea why this is called Monkey Bread. I also have never made monkey bread before, despite it being ridiculously easy and ridiculously delicious. You could make your own biscuit dough, but I was all about the short cut this time around. I […]

Cardamom & Cinnamon Swirl Chocolate Chip Bread

Cardamom & Cinnamon Swirl Chocolate Chip Bread

Quick disclaimer here. You know those days where you wake up and just nothing seems to be working? I went to the dealership (after calling first) to get a quick diagnosis on my car. Good news is that whatever it is should be covered under […]

Pumpkin Butter Crescent Rolls

Pumpkin Butter Crescent Rolls

I am addicted to the show Scandal. I’ve been watching it non-stop since this weekend and I’m loving it. Kerry Washington and the rest of the cast are phenomenal and I love the story lines and everyone is corrupt but wonderful and badass. It’s addicting. […]

Kanelbullar: Swedish Cinnamon Rolls

Kanelbullar: Swedish Cinnamon Rolls

October is one of my favorite months, not just because it’s my birthday. It’s filled with beautiful fall weather before it starts to get too cold, it’s the perfect transition month between the too warm first half of September and the snow that threatens to […]

Beer Bread

Beer Bread

I did legit karaoke for the first time Saturday night. Before that, I had just done it in the privacy of a friend’s house at Wes where we only had 4 karaoke CDs so we just sang a lot of Taylor Swift (which I loved). […]

Swedish Saffron Rolls “Lussekatter”

Swedish Saffron Rolls “Lussekatter”

Glad Sankta Lucia! That means “Happy Santa Lucia day!” in Swedish.¬†Today is a huge holiday in Sweden, and I wish I was there to celebrate it. This year is my first year being home for it in awhile, but my mom doesn’t get home until […]
