Molten Lava Cake

One of the most common, expensive and delicious desserts that is readily available at most high class restaurants is the molten lava cake.  I used to love ordering one when we would go out for a special occasion, but not any more, not since I learned just how easy and cheap these really are to make. I made these the other night and remembered just how absolutely amazing they are, although it is probably bad that I know that these are easy to make because I will start making them more frequently. YOU MUST GIVE IT A TRY!

Savory Cheddar Bacon Waffle

Nick and I both love waffles and nothing is better than a nice savory waffle sandwich. I found this recipe to make savory waffles and they were so incredibly tasty that they were perfect for a BLT style sandwich or even as a savory breakfast pastry. By using the oil from the bacon instead of melted butter, there is an incredibly strong bacon flavor that is exerted from these delicious waffles, that is why the waffles work well just by themselves without anything poured over or added to them.

Quinoa Pizza Crust (Gluten Free)

Another recipe for my gluten-free vegan friend, vegan pizza. We used a kale basil pesto as our sauce (with olive oil, garlic, and sunflower seeds) with no cheese and this quinoa crust paired with soy Mozarella cheese to create this absolutely vegan pizza. It was quite tasty and the crust was very good, it is definitely a do-able option for any of my vegan friends out there.

Cinnamon Rolls

I am currently addicted to cinnamon rolls. I made these as Nick's welcome back breakfast when he returned from Japan, since then I have been obsessed. This is a great recipe my great friend Megan shared with me, the baking queen. You should check out her blog MeganInMoshi, about her experiences living and teaching in Tanzania.

Fall Favorites

I love fall, it is my favorite season of them all. Every year I use fall as an excuse to overload on our squash/gourd intake. I tend to overdue it, which Nick doesn't appreciate very much but I just can't help it. If you are at all like me then the following recipes are for you. I know we are only a week or two into fall but I have already made all of the listed recipes. So, happy fall! May you enjoy it as much as I do :) 

Pumpkin Coffee Cake

I love pumpkin and this is the season for pumpkin. I decided to make something a little different than the normal pumpkin bread by adding the topping and filling of coffee cake but with pumpkin spice. This worked out great! This was delicious and lovely. I expect you all to give it a try.
