Sourdough Nutella Brownie

My love of baking is something that keeps me sane during these last couple of weeks. Some of you know that I recently had a baby (almost 3 months!). That means my creativity and spare time went down the window. Sleep deprived and constantly looking after a little one took its toll on my creative…

Air Fryer Pasta Chips

I’ve been seeing pasta chips all over the internet and thought it was an interesting idea. I wanted to try it out since it sounded easy.

White Chocolate Pistachio Bark

Making white chocolate bark is a great way to treat someone you love. It looks beautiful, tastes great and is easy. For this recipe, I used white chocolate, pistachios, freeze dried strawberries, lavender and salted cherry blossoms. The green, red and pinks look fantastic against the white chocolate. This recipe also doesn’t have exact measurements…

Summer Chocolate Bark

Surprise Sunbutter Cookies

I first saw these cookies on emmymadeinjapan and I thought this was the most interesting cookie surprise ever.  Apparently there is a chemical reaction that happens with the cookie and the baking soda. After baking and cooling the cookies, the middle of the cookie turns green! So fascinating.  I think this recipe would be a hit…

Pakoras are a tasty Indian fried snack that is made with chickpea flour (gram flour) and spices. You can make pakoras with a lot of different ingredients like carrots, cauliflower, and onions.
