Browned Butter Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are one of my all-time favorite candies, and putting them in cookie form and including browned butter? Oh man. If someone stole one of these cookies from the cookie jar, it was probably me… and it was definitely more than one.

Stroganoff: A Comfort Food Classic

I grew up on stroganoff made from Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom Soup. I loved it, but I never knew stroganoff could be more flavorful and have more complexity to it. This recipe, with its creaminess, depth of flavor, slight heat, and hearty thick-cut mushrooms and steak chunks, is a regular in our weeknight dinner rotation.

Cherry Amaretto Cheesecake

My Amaretto Cherry Cheesecake might seem intimidating, but it’s more simple than you might think, and the flavor combination is a real showstopper. The main thing to remember when making this recipe is that patience makes perfect cheesecake!

Earl Grey and Shortbread No-Churn Ice Cream

There’s something soothing and comforting about a cup of Earl Grey tea and Walker’s Shortbread Cookies… or biscuits, depending on which side of the pond you’re on. This no-churn ice cream combines these tea time staples into a flavorful, slightly salty, slightly sweet, and satisfyingly creamy and crunchy dessert.

Dutch Apple Pie

I know people scoff at the phrase “easy as pie” because making pie doesn’t seem all that easy… but this Dutch Apple is so worth the work. I guarantee this pie will be better than any that you buy in a store, and it’s so good that it will have you rethinking the whole “apple pie is for fall” thing.

Matcha Protein Smoothie

I’ve always been a very on the go person, and caffeine is my favorite food group, so this Matcha Protein Smoothie is perfect for me. This smoothie has it all — fruit, protein, a touch of sweetness from the honey, and a jolt of caffeine from the matcha. 

Deviled Eggs Two Ways

Now that Easter is over, you might find yourself up to your ears with prettily-colored hard-boiled eggs. Not sure what to do with them all? I’ve got two deviled eggs recipes — Classic and Garlic Aioli (mayo-free!) — right here. These eggs are so good, that you may actually want to boil a few more.

Orange Cardamom Rolls

These Orange Cardamom Rolls combine my childhood love for orange cinnamon rolls and my newfound obsession with cardamom into one deliciously fluffy and flavorful breakfast treat. Top these fluffy buns off with gooey, zesty, orange cream cheese frosting, and you’ll be ruined for all other cinnamon rolls… I’m only a little sorry about that.

Chunky Monkey Banana Bread

When my bananas went mushy, I wanted to do something other than the banana bread or banana chip muffins that I usually make. If you saw my Butterbeer Birthday Cake post, then you probably know that I recently learned how to make salted caramel sauce, and since then, I’ve been putting it on E V E R Y T H I N G, including this bread. For good measure, I also threw in some chopped walnuts.
