Smith Family Birthday Cake

October 25, 2014

This is a post that I’ve been holding off on writing for a bit. Mainly because what I’m about to reveal (at least partially) is a family secret. That being said, the Smith Family birthday cake, as its come to be known, is a birthday tradition. It’s a bit labor intensive to make, but the finished product is so good and so worth it.

White Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

October 22, 2014

Hi everyone, my name is Paige, and I think pumpkin flavor is just okay. It’s heresy to say, especially during fall, I know. But it’s kinda true – so many pumpkin-flavored things are a little bland.

Warm Oatmeal Apple Pie Crisp

October 11, 2014

I have a serious sweet tooth. Chocolate, pies, cookies, cakes, ice cream – you name it, I probably like it. My boyfriend’s sweet tooth is slightly more refined, though when we first started going out, he claimed he wasn’t a big dessert guy. Right… I fixed that quick enough. I baked my way straight into his heart (and simultaneously got him addicted to sugar). Love you, Sean!

What is his sugary weakness, you ask? Besides the sugar bomb cereal Lucky Charms (which stays out of the house because it is his Achilles’ heel), he loves fruit based desserts. Fruit salad, his Aunt Jenny’s mocha cake, pie, oatmeal raisin cookies, etc.

When I was bitten with the baking bug last weekend, I whipped up a seasonally appropriate recipe of warm apple pie crumble. And it was epic. Continue reading

Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

September 3, 2014

It’s a travesty that I hate to say, but it looks like summer is finally coming to an end. The mornings and afternoons just aren’t quite as humid and sweltering as they were just a few weeks ago. There is one bright spot to this lack of heat though… Baked goods! Continue reading

Mocha Cake

August 20, 2014

I know some families don’t have traditional “birthday dinners” or birthday cakes. You know the kind: every time someone’s birthday rolls around they always request the same meal (mine was always my mom’s baby back ribs) or the same birthday cake. Well, lucky for me, neither Sean nor I grew up like that. And this is where this awesome mocha birthday cake recipe comes from. Continue reading
