I was all about the apple desserts last week and this week, I’m jumping into the pumpkin dessert pool with two feet with these vegan pumpkin cheesecake bars! For the longest time, I wasn’t really a pumpkin fan (give me pecan pie > pumpkin pie anyday), but now that I’ve finally nailed (more…)

10 Apple Dessert Recipes for Fall

Ready to use the season’s best apples? Here are 10 apple dessert recipes that are perfect for fall! From breakfast to dessert, crisp to biscuits, all the apple recipes are here! 

Hello and hi there! I’m all kinds of thrown off on what day it is and have been dealing with power/internet issues, so it seems like a perfect time to talk about apple dessert recipes, yes? After taking a weekend trip for a couple of football games (college and NFL) over the weekend, AJ and I came home yesterday to a power outage (right about when it was getting dark) and then a zapped router after the power came back on. There was a lot of swearing at technology in general over the last 24 hours, but I figured out how to install a router and read way too many articles on how to troubleshoot internet problems, so it’s all good. Plus, AJ and I both ran errands yesterday and came home with ice cream, so we both have our priorities in order. Anyway, let’s talk about apple desserts! (more…)

Guys, these Maple Pecan Bars are out of this world good and the perfect way to kick off your fall baking.

Think of these like a shortbread-y crust topped with a big batch of quick caramel and a healthy dose of pecans folded in. The brown sugar in these maple pecan bars gives off a caramel taste to both the crust and topping, while coconut cream is mixed into the topping to make everything creamy and dreamy. True fall baking heaven!

I just stole one of these vanilla bean macaroons out of the freezer, biting into the hard exterior and trying to eat it before the chocolate dipped bottom started melting onto my fingers, with no luck. If I’m going to be 100% honest here, I probably ate about 3 cookies worth of dough while I was (more…)

Vegan Strawberry Shrub Float

Well here we are, it’s Friday and I’m just now getting around to getting this strawberry shrub float recipe up and it feels like the week went by in a flash! After seeing just about everything Minneapolis has to offer over the holiday weekend (including brunch with this lovely lady), I came back full and happy, but with the realization that 1.) crap it’s September and 2.) I still haven’t eaten my fill of summer ice cream. (more…)
