Cinnamon Cupcakes

Back to remaking recipes from blog-past! My husband requested cinnamon something, and who am I to say no to my husband? Recently I’ve been on a cookie kick, and I felt like the plethora of cupcake liners I had in my pantry were getting ignored. So with cinnamon in mind, I took a look through…

Cinnamon Bundt Cakes & Roll Goals

One of my favorite stories is when I worked at Quiznos, age 17, and my boss who was from Bangladesh was asking me to grab some stuff from the back so we could refill the cooler case. “Could you grab me the bund-it cakes?” “The what?” “Bund-it. The bund-it cakes.” “Ray. It’s bundt. One word.”…

Peanut Butter Balls

Tis the season for easy baking…. Fa la la la la… don’t bake at all. It’s true! You don’t need to bake these! You can even watch me make them, it was really easy, and you could start an assembly line of family to help you make them. Just make sure them hands is clean….

Stop being baffled, there are (probably) scientific reasons for it. I’m going to talk about all those totally scientific reasons I have….
