In celebration, I have a quick, simple, Halloween-inspired chocolate goody for you to try that would be perfect for any Halloween party. I came up with this idea when I was wondering the aisles of the grocery store looking for a treat to bring to a friend’s apartment. It may be too early for peppermint bark, but it’s the perfect time for Halloween bark!

I was recently invited to participate in McCormick's Halloween baking blogger contest through KitchenPlay, and since I love baking how could I resist?

Monster as in grrrrrr not Monster like HUGE. Although I do like a HUGE cookie every now and again (okay that is a lie, I ALWAYS like huge cookies). SOOO I know that Halloween weekend is upon us and I have waited till the last min to make these...but better late then never right?

It’s almost fall and that means it’s time to start baking warm, spicy autumn desserts. My absolute favorite spice cake recipe is for Pumpkin Spice Bars. To make the bars, you start out by baking a homemade spice cake in a sheet pan and savoring the smell of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves filling up your kitchen.

Remember last week when I discovered two ways for not making marshmallows? Thank goodness I finally figured it out and was able to make some amazing marshmallow treats! Being the frugal cook I am I can't bear to let anything go to waste so I saved the marshmallow cream figuring no recipe is a failure if you can find a way to turn it into something glorious and new. Let me tell you, these candies are pretty glorious.

I’m guest posting over at Vestavamps today, so you’ll have to hop on over there for the spooky details + recipe. I can’t remember exactly, but I think we originally met through Instagram, a combination of social media plus pretty pictures.

As I was baking up some pumpkin muffins for the kids today I was realizing how my baking has changed over this past year. I used to be into mixing various types of gluten free flours to see what the results would be.

I loved this idea, especially since lately I watched one of the Sex and the City episode where Carrie and Miranda were devouring some cupcakes from Magnolia Bakery.

In embarrassing Libra fashion, I must have changed my mind w/r/t the type of cake I wanted to make for the now annual Libra birthday party at least five times. Last year’s entry was a hit, so I was feeling the follow-up pressure, it’s true. But more than that, there’s also finally a full-on fall chill in the air, so I wanted something more rich and comforting than sharply sugary.

had a baking spree with my girls this past weekend. They really wanted me to make something “Halloweeny.” And because Pia was involved, it had to be chocolate. I thought about my poor old whoopie pie pan that hasen’t been used since this.

I’m not sure why it’s taken me so long to post this recipe. I’ve been making it since last year . It’s one of my favorites and something I make regularly. I have another more traditional chicken pot pie recipe which I like a lot, but that recipe is most certainly not low fat so I don’t make it as much (usually only after holidays to use up the extra chicken/turkey). This recipe is a lighter version of chicken pot pie, but it tastes just as good.

Simple is almost always better. At least I think so. Simple suppers, simple desserts, simple pleasures. Today we have a simple dessert that is certain to please. We’re poaching beautiful seasonal plums in wine with spices. It’s easy peasy and you can make this in less than 15 minutes. So there are really no excuses NOT to enjoy dessert ; )

You guys had such great comments on that post and really got me motivated to finally go through all the recipes I have marked to make. I know this isn’t a baked dish, but I think calling my challenge posts “baking through the blogs” would be more fun than just a challenge. And I like alliteration and use it whenever possible.

I’ve found myself in the middle of my favorite season, with very little baking to show for it. Instead of spending time in the kitchen, I’ve been out, living this fall to it’s fullest and spending lots of time with family.

I used to hate mushrooms and tofu. Together, separately, with sauce, without sauce, deep fried, grilled, whatever the method; it didn’t matter. I just didn’t think they were for me because every time I tried them, the texture was off.

I was first introduced to Happyolks when I tested this granola recipe for editor’s pick over at food52. The granola was great, yes, but it was the words in the headnote of that recipe that really made an impression on me. I started reading the blog soon after, and was immediately hooked.

You know what they say about the third time being a charm? Well, it's certainly held true for me this week in my quest to bring you a pumpkin recipe. I'm seeing pumpkins everywhere; on doorsteps, nestled next to lampposts, and in the form of mountain sized displays of canned Libby's.

I’ll be honest here – the recipe I am about to give you varies ever so slightly from what I actually made. But I doubt you have a batch of pumpkin caramel just lying around your house like I did, so I have adapted the recipe below to make it much easier for you!

I made a spur of the moment decision and organised a visit to see my friends and family in Canada last week! So, this post comes to you from 37,000km above ground level somewhere between Sydney and Vancouver.

'm aware that the food world has no shortage of pumpkin cupcake recipes, but I'm sharing this one anyway. It's my favorite because it doesn't err on the "muffiny" side. It is truly a pumpkin cupcake, and I cannot recommend them enough. Make them! Need some convincing?
