pumpkin spice cinnamon rolls [recipe]

Disclaimer: I was planning to take MUCH better photos (you know, with actual bakeware and shots of the individual pillows of pumpkin-y goodness) but I’ve been so busy prepping and cooking for Thanksgiving, I didn’t have time to bake & photograph these pumpkin spice cinnamon rolls in all their beautiful, delicious glory.  So bear with… more

Hello again after another long hiatus!  If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed that I did some globetrotting over the past few weeks.  More on that later, I promise 🙂 Today’s post is dedicated to three of my absolute favorite things: pumpkin, winter spices, and ease.  I personally do not believe in confining pumpkin… more

baked red velvet donuts

It has been a long, long time since I published a recipe.  I promise, this one makes up for the hiatus.  I’ve recently found myself completely obsessed with donuts – you can go ahead and thank Joy over at Joy the Baker who’s brown butter pistachio donuts first caught my eye.  I bought a mini… more

dark chocolate cake pop truffles

dark chocolate cake pop truffles

Cake pops have been on my list of things to make forever, but since they’re a much more involved process than a simple layer cake or cupcakes, they always get de-prioritized… until now!  I thought I had wooden dowels at home but when I went to coat my cake balls, I realized I didn’t –… more

oatmeal peanut butter chocolate chip cookies

oatmeal peanut butter chocolate chip cookies

aka the b-low cookies. Why?  Because when you promise cookies in exchange for miracles in your day-job, you deliver.  So when my colleague gave me a miracle that kept a critical project on track, my second response (after “OMG THANK YOUUUU!!!!!” obviously) was, “so what kind of cookies do you want?”  And after deciding upon… more

…with chocolate chips.  Because sometimes, you just need some chocolate, okay? For most of us corporate folks, this past week was the first full work-week since mid-December.  Five whole days, uninterrupted by a Tuesday or Wednesday holiday… no matter how much you love your job, going from vacation mode to full-blown work-mode can definitely be… more

triple chocolate chunk cookies (and a birthday!)

Well, I hope everyone ate as much as I did over the last two days.  I swear, the only pants that are comfortable right now are my yoga pants.  I have zero intent to wear jeans in the near future.  Today’s post is extra special for two reasons: 1) it’s a birthday celebration for Passing… more

pumpkin cookies for #fbcookieswap

We’re pretty deep into the holiday season, which means we’re deep into the most intense cookie consumption months of the entire year.  I don’t know why cookie exchanges are limited to the winter – cookies are my desert of choice, and I’d be over the moon if I could entice people to trade them with… more

#humblebrag: This is the most beautiful creation to come out of my kitchen.  And I’m really, ridiculously, excited to share it.  (Don’t worry, it tastes really good too!) Before I get started, a few things: I promise, I do make more than pies and tarts.  As of late, I’ve just found it incredibly soothing to… more

7 ingredient blueberry pocket pies

I was pretty disappointed on Saturday because I missed my favorite Farmer’s Market at the Ferry Building due to a long run and a beer festival (I know, world’s saddest song on the smallest violin, right?).  The Farmer’s Market (a San Francisco staple) is my favorite place to buy fresh, local produce – especially stone fruits and… more
