Sour Cream Coffee Cake

For New Year’s brunch, I had toyed with the idea of making muffins, but then I thought maybe a coffee cake would be a better option for a bigger group.

Pumpkin Cheesecake

Just one more pumpkin recipe before the season is officially over. (I haven’t quite determined if December 1st was the cutoff or not.) A friend sent me this cheesecake recipe from Epicurious so I could make it for Thanksgiving, and it was insane. It got rave reviews across the board – a certified 5 Evil Rating. And it’s not […]

Applesauce Spice Cake

When I reflect on my (f)unemployment of the past 7+ weeks, I realize that, in a way, it’s really been a win-win situation for not only myself, but all my friends. You might not understand what I mean, so let me explain. I used to have a job where I worked all the time, as […]
