Pink Velvet Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting

Pink Velvet Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting

Happy Valentine’s Day! We are spending this evening going back to our Valentine’s pizza eating tradition this year after spending last year apart with me in New York for grad school interviews. We got into the spirit a little early this year when we had some friends over for dinner this week by serving these pink…

Whole Lemon Bars

Whole Lemon Bars

As much as we both love a good fruit pie,when we order dessert, both Dustin and I will almost always gravitate towards something chocolate, covered in caramel, and loaded with ice cream. Every once in awhile though, I will have an intense craving for something fruity, and usually that fruity dessert is something with lemon,…

Brown Butter Cherry Amaretto Bars

Brown Butter Cherry Amaretto Bars

I really wanted to make cherry amaretto hand pies similar to these for July 4th, but that just wasn’t happening given the sheer number of people that needed to be baked for. Instead, I swapped the hand pies out for bars, adapting the recipe from Smitten Kitchen. I was sold after reading brown butter, but…

Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars

Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars

We are officially having a week of summer weather in Seattle! Over the weekend we hit up a park with our neighbors for a little picnic and dog play time. These peanut butter and jelly bars seemed like the perfect, classic and nostalgic all-American dessert for a warm weather outing— all of the flavors of…

Gooey Cinnamon Squares

Gooey Cinnamon Squares

After the chocolate chip brioche pretzels, this was the recipe from the Smitten Kitchen Cookbook I was most excited to try. A decadent combination of gooey butter cake (a St. Louis area dessert that is pretty well described by its name) and snickerdoodles, these bars are melt-in-your-mouth delicious. I intended to eat only one before…

Blueberry Bacon Buttermilk Bars

Blueberry Bacon Buttermilk Bars

Intrigued by the title? So was I by this cake when I saw this sorta wacky sounding cake on How Sweet It Is. This cake (with buttermilk substituted for regular milk) seemed like it would be the perfect break from my GRE studying. I put down my books, preheated the oven and got to frying…

Oatmeal Butterscotch Bars

Oatmeal Butterscotch Bars

I seriously cannot believe this recipe came from Cooking Light, because oh my god, one tiny little square of this bar feels sinfully indulgent. The butterscotch filling, simply made with butterscotch chips and fat-free sweetened condensed milk is so rich and creamy, you’d never guess you were eating a lighter version. And the oat crust…

Cookies and Cream Cheesecake Bars

Cookies and Cream Cheesecake Bars

The cookie and cream cheesecake bars were a big hit here in our apartment. Oreos have to be one of my favorite flavors to add to cheesecake. Dustin said it might have been the best cheesecake he’s had and that it was definitely better than the Oreo cheesecake we used to eat at the Chocolate…

Apple and ‘White Chocolate Wonderful’ Bars

Apple and ‘White Chocolate Wonderful’ Bars

Given the abundance of apples in our home, it’s only natural I spend my baking time making delicious apple treats. Peanut butter is one of the most amazingly delicious and versatile foods in our pantry (which is actually just an overflowing cabinet). I could literally eat it at every meal and snack, sweet or savory.…

Pumpkin Bars with Maple Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

Pumpkin Bars with Maple Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

I have been waiting months for fall to arrive in order to be able to make pumpkin flavored treats without seeming crazy. There is not a better smell than the aroma of fall spices— cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves— in a warm kitchen on a cool day. I am stocked up on canned pumpkin and ready to…
