Muffins + Bread

Lemon Lavender Scones

Lemon Lavender Scones

Last time we visited Temecula, I visited the lavender store and bought food-grade lavender. The perfect pairing for lavender is lemon, so I added them both into a delicious buttermilk scone. Coffee, scones, and working on a crossword is pretty much the perfect way to start off a weekend, especially Easter weekend which is coming…

Pumpkin Ale Cream Cheese Swirl Bread

Pumpkin Ale Cream Cheese Swirl Bread

Seriously, where has time gone? We are already well into November, and I’ve yet to start baking with pumpkin! I’m so far behind on all of my baking todo lists. Similar to the pumpkin cider bread I made a few years back, this is a sweet, slightly yeasty pumpkin bread with a delicious cream cheese…

Strawberry Chocolate Chip Muffins

Strawberry Chocolate Chip Muffins

One of the many weather bonuses of living in SoCal is the year-round strawberry season at the Farmer’s Market. Last weekend, I bought some on a whim with no real plan for what I wanted to do with them. We needed some breakfasts for later in the week, so I decided to make strawberry muffins.…

Sausage and Cheese Biscuits

Sausage and Cheese Biscuits

I wanted the nostalgia of sausage balls this holiday season, but I didn’t want plain sausage balls. I’ve had a couple of weeks off before I get crazy busy again, and I wanted to put this time to good use, baking new things. These sausage and cheese biscuits taste a lot like the real deal…

Chocolate Turtle Bread

Chocolate Turtle Bread

When I got back from my travels earlier this year, Dustin made me a sweet breakfast. I wanted to return the favor when he got back from his mini trip to San Antonio, so I made him this chocolate turtle bread. Dustin and I are both crazy about turtles the animals and turtles the treats. Chocolate, caramel,…

Peach & Dried Blueberry Scones + White Chocolate Glaze

Peach & Dried Blueberry Scones + White Chocolate Glaze

For pretty much as long as we lived in Washington, I’ve been making baked goods for us to eat for quick breakfasts on the weekdays. With me going back to school, I’m sure we’ll be relying even more heavily on easy smoothies and such. I’m really going to miss all the baked goods and will be…

Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Chip Muffins

Nutella Stuffed Chocolate Chip Muffins

Before we get to the food for the day, I wanted to take a moment to point out what you’ve probably already noticed if you’ve visited Wafoodie before. Wafoodie has been completely redesigned and made so much more fun and bright! The awesome graphic designer was, of course, Dustin. He is a total rockstar in…

Momofuku Everything Bagel Bombs with Bacon-Scallion Cream Cheese

Momofuku Everything Bagel Bombs with Bacon-Scallion Cream Cheese

Such a simple idea— bake cream cheese inside bagel dough so that when you bite in, warm cream cheese explodes all over your tastebuds— but so brilliant. What else would I expect from Momofuku? The more I try from their cookbook, the more sad I grow that I didn’t choose to go to school in…

Asiago Parmesan Bagels + Whipped Feta

Asiago Parmesan Bagels + Whipped Feta

Cheese bagels with an extra cheese flavored cream cheese. What could be better for breakfast for this cheese lover? I really enjoyed the crispy texture the asiago-parmesan cheese got when baked up in the oven. It sort of reminded me of the parmesan crisps sometimes served on tomato soup at fancier restaurants. Add creamy, salty…

Crystalized Ginger & Peach Muffins

Crystalized Ginger & Peach Muffins

These are definitely some of the best healthy muffins I’ve made— whole wheat flour and oats make up the majority of the base— and the flavor combination is something a little unique and different than your standard muffin. The texture of these muffins remind me of the muffins we occasionally buy at Whole Foods— hearty…
