  • The Best Cinnamon Rolls (with over-night/make-ahead option AND secret baking instructions!)

    October 2, 2021Brianna

    Cinnamon rolls are honestly a tricky thing to make well. Sometimes you get a super dry roll that just tastes like plain sugar, sometimes you get a roll that is so doughy in the middle you’re worried it’s going to make you sick. Finding the balance between a roll that’s done, but not dry, that…

  • Browned Butter Snickerdoodles

    June 4, 2021Brianna

    I’ve always felt “meh” about a snickerdoodle cookie. They basically taste like a bland sugar cookie with cinnamon sugar on them. Then I discovered brown butter and all the delicious flavor this adds to basically everything and decided to try a browned butter snickerdoodle cookie. I have one other snickerdoodle recipe on my website and…

    April 28, 2021Brianna

    Chocolate white chip cookies are one of my favorite kinds of cookies but a lot of recipes I’ve tried just don’t taste as good as a bakery version so I set out to create my own. Much like several other cookies on this website (tried and true chocolate chip cookies, cookie butter cookies) it took…
