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 […]

Gingerbread Scones - tender scones with crispy edges and a perfect blend of cozy spices. | brighteyedbaker.com

I have my fingers crossed right now that gingerbread is still a thing even though the holidays are over. I SO wanted to share these scones before Christmas came and went, but the last few weeks have been completely chaotic (in the best way possible!) and here we are on the other end with me hoping that […]

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, […]

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 […]

I’ve wanted a bundt pan forever and I was beyond excited to finally get one. I’m obsessed with the way glaze just flows down the […]
