Strawberry Cake

image

I love strawberries and found this yummy looking strawberry cake recipe so I had to give it a try. Unfortunately, I don’t yet know how it came out because I donated it to a nursing home. I’ll update with the verdict once I hear back.

Update: So the report I received about the cake was “not your best”. I guess it wasn’t sweet enough. I might not have put enough honey? Ah well, for every success there are a few failures and that is how we learn!

St. Patrick’s Day Guinness Brownies

image

It’s been a while, but I thought I’d be Irish and share a nice recipe for Guinness brownies. They’re pretty rich, definitely chocolatey, and pretty good even in the opinion of someone who isn’t a big brownie fan. Two thumbs up.

Mint Cookie Truffles



Sometimes I post photos of things I bake on Facebook and sometimes people I know will comment saying they want me to make them something. I made these for someone under those circumstances recently. It’s a super easy and super yummy recipe. My family was all mad at me for giving them away! Original recipe here.

Browned Butter Brownies with Peanut Butter Frosting



I made these brownies for my mom to take to work at the nursing home but they were still hot when she left so she frosted them there. I asked her to take a picture and this is what she gave me… but apparently the patients enjoyed them! Original recipe here.

Chocolate Coconut Peanut Butter Pretzel Bars

So I’m not a big fan of plain ol’ pretzels, but I had this big bag left over from another baking endeavor. I turned to Google to find a way to incorporate them into a recipe and came across this recipe for Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Bars, which I took the liberty of changing into Chocolate Coconut Peanut Butter Pretzel Bars (because I had coconut leftover too). The verdict?: Simple to make and a nice treat to feed to your roommate while you watch Aladdin together for film class.

Coconut Lime Macaroons with White Chocolate

I guess this isn’t normal but in my one writing class we occasionally bake things and share it with the class. It’s a really small class. Last week a friend of mine brought in brown butter muffins so on Tuesday I brought in these macaroons :)
