SO. Don’t even know where to start with this post. Do I mention that it’s been an entire month since I shared that s’mores milkshake? Do I point out that I’ve posted a total of *zero* fall recipes this fall and it’s almost November? Do I admit that I’ve kind of had this recipe in the […]

Warm Pear Crumble {for two} {Dairy-Free}

November 19, 2014
Warm Pear Crumble {for two} - a simple, small-batch crumble recipe with a spiced pear filling.

I kinda like the idea of a recipe made for two, don’t you? There’s one for you and one for someone else (or one for you and another for you; I’m not judging!) without a bunch of extras that have to stick around and keep you eating the same thing day after day. Now, don’t get me wrong, […]

Pecan & Date Oatmeal Cookies - Hearty, flavor-packed, cinnamon-spiced oatmeal cookies that just happen to be 100% whole wheat and butter-free; you'd never know it though! | www.brighteyedbaker.com

There are chocolate chip cookie people and then there are oatmeal raisin cookie people, and I’m definitely, 100%, on team chocolate chip cookie.

So remember what I said about pears, and how I was mehhh about them until I tried poaching them? And now here I am making muffins with them and doing that whole “stepping out of your comfort zone” thing. Like, who am I and what have I done to that girl who didn’t like pears?? I’ve […]

Pumpkin Pie Crumb Bars - pie crust gets swapped out for a moist, cake base and a irresistible crumble topping in this easy recipe.

These crumb bars are for all of you out there who don’t like pie crust — to which I say, you’re craaaazzzzy, but we can still be friends. :) Basically, imagine taking a cinnamon-spiced, brown sugar-infused whole wheat dough and a rich, nutty crumble topping smattered with graham cracker crumbs and dotted with pecan bits, […]

No-Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Shooters

October 11, 2014
No-Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Shooters - an indulgent dessert turned into a mini cheesecake shot.

How do you feel about the whole mini dessert thing? Because honestly, my typical answer is usually “no, no, no, no, NO”. I know they’re cute and all, but mini + dessert just doesn’t exist in my vocabulary. I like my desserts full-sized, thankyouverymuch. So obviously, I’m breaking my own rules here because these little […]

Spiced Apple Muffins with Apple Cinnamon Glaze - an light fall treat that's easy to whip up. | http://www.brighteyedbaker.com #fallrecipes

I’m pretty sure I’ve been living in denial, because it’s October and I’m just barely starting to acknowledge that fall is HERE. I literally haven’t opened up a single can of pumpkin yet, which is so not normal, and my cravings for warm spices like cinnamon and nutmeg are just barely starting to kick in. Like I’ve […]

You guys? Summer is soooo not over. Everybody seems to think it is though, and I keeping seeing pumpkin recipes popping up around the web, fall treats appearing at coffee shops, and all this other goodbye-summer hello-fall craziness. I’m all for the temperature dropping a little below three digits and I love everything pumpkin as much as the next person, […]

So, are you one of those “go with the flow” people, or are you a planner? As much as I sometimes wish I was better at being relaxed and easy-going, it’s in my nature to need things planned out. If you remember me talking about my trip to France, that’s a perfect example of what […]

Thumbnail image for Confession #92: I’m Obsessed… Glazed Pumpkin Scones with Caramel Drizzle

Remember when I was obsessed with chocolate? Like back when I wrote my very first blog post ever, and up until, umm, a few days ago? Oh wait, that’s right, still obsessed. But now I have a second obsession – caramel. Sweet, creamy, rich, luscious, caramel. Ever since I learned how to make it, I keep dreaming […]
