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, […]

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 […]

Almond Champagne Poached Pears with Almond Whipped Cream | www.brighteyedbaker.com

One of the things that I LOVE about what I do is that I’m constantly discovering new flavor combinations and exposing myself to new types of food. Pears have not even once made an appearance on the blog before – not because I’d never had a pear before obviously, but because I was never really that […]

Easy Fall Chocolate Bark with NatureBox {Dairy-Free}

October 23, 2014
Easy Fall Chocolate Bark - a healthy, simple dessert for chocolate-lovers, loaded with classic fall flavors in every crunchy bite.  | www.brighteyedbaker.com

Truth: When I was putting this post together, I had a serious debate going on in my mind over whether chocolate bark should be categorized as a snack or not. I was *this* close to putting the recipe in the snack category, but then I decided that maybe some people don’t understand the concept of snacking chocolate like […]

No-Bake Pumpkin Cheesecake Shooters

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 […]

Strawberry Apple Crumble - a wam, nutty crumble that combines juicy summer berries with crisp fall apples in the best way possible.  | www.brighteyedbaker.com

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, […]

Are you all pumpkin’d out already, it being mid-November and all? Fingers crossed you’re not, because I made you muffins! Not JUST muffins, but healthy(ish) muffins with pumpkin and choc-O-late. It can’t be too late for that, can it? The thing is, I really have no idea how it came to be this late in […]

I think these cinnamon rolls have my mind in a twist, because my brain can’t seem to stay on a consistent track long enough for me to talk about them. There’s soft, pillowy dough, spiced brown sugar filling, an irresistible cream cheese drizzle… How can you think around that? I knew when I started out […]
