Biscoff Cupcakes with White Chocolate Frosting


Biscoff Cupcakes with White Chocolate Frosting
Attention, these are going to be your new favorite cupcakes. I mean, do the math. If Biscoff cookies are amazing, and Biscoff spread is fantastic, what do you think a Biscoff cupcake is going to be? Hm? That's right. Out of this WORLD. It was a tricky recipe to perfect,  I must admit. My first few batches were ...meh. They were good but not great and I couldn't give you guys anything less than perfect. I had to play around with the ratios of sugar, baking soda, etc until I had made a perfectly moist, tender cupcake with just the right amount of fluffiness. The frosting on the other hand came together wonderfully on my first try, thanks to Sally's Baking Addiction . She knows her stuff. This is probably the dreamiest, creamiest frosting I've ever made. And I think I want to frost all my cupcakes with white chocolate buttercream from now on. But I'm going to stop blabbing about how great these are and just give you the darn recipe. Don't forget to

Salted Caramel Macarons

Salted Caramel Macarons

Well, hello there! The last time we talked, I was posting popsicles. And now it's currently 40 degrees outside and I'm not even sure we are going to get an Autumn this year. But the weather isn't the only thing that has changed. I recently became a furbaby mom! Junie made her debut on my Instagram a few months ago and that picture looks nothing like her now because oh my goodness, cats grow so fast! We are trying to enjoy the most of her kitten days; she keeps us on our feet for sure. In other news, I moved! Technically, that sentence doesn't really deserve an exclamation point because moving is NOT fun or exciting, at all. But decorating a new place is, and the reason I haven't been posting is because I have been living in Home Goods. Of course that's an exaggeration but, I am pretty sure that's what the employees thought based on how often they saw me there. I was pretty much determined to have the place looking a certain way by a specific time

Strawberry Coconut Lime Popsicles

Strawberry Coconut Lime Popsicles

Y'all, I've officially broken out the popsicle maker. It's about that time. Time for refreshing, no-bake treats that are so easy to make, you'll want to make them every day. And since I know many of you are going to ask, this is the popsicle maker I use. It's amazing, and has never failed me. When it comes to popsicle making, the varieties are literally endless and it is super adaptable to your diet or lifestyle plan. I was recently on a 21 day cleanse (shoutout to Simple Green Smoothies ) which  consisted of me avoiding sugar, dairy and animal-based products. And let me tell you, I used A LOT of coconut milk. A lot . In my cooking, in my smoothies, and in my popsicles. Yes, I was allowed to have popsicles. #bestcleanseever And so, I was inspired to create for you my very own dairy-free and refined-sugar free popsicles. It is strawberry season in Ohio right now, so of course, I had to go to my local farmer's market and get me some. My coconut milk was

Hazelnut Chocolate Chip Tiramisu

Hazelnut Chocolate Chip Tiramisu

Have you ever wondered how to make tiramisu better? Well, wonder no more. I have figured it out for you all. Add hazelnut syrup, Nutella, and chocolate chips. This is probably one of my best ideas yet. And I owe it all to Ramadan. When you're fasting from sunrise to sunset, your brain has a lot of time to think about all the things you're going to eat when you break your fast. And it can get very creative. However, I didn't think this through all the way because I had to photograph this droolworthy tiramisu WHILE I was fasting and that was just pure torture. It's bad enough scrolling through my Instagram feed and seeing post after post from my favorite foodies. Imagine having an actual slice of tiramisu right in front of you. So close, but yet so far. But you know what, that's all part of the plan. We fast to strengthen our discipline, and help us to become more thankful of our countless blessings and the many things we do have. It reminds us of the impor

Glazed Lemon Pound Cake

Glazed Lemon Pound Cake

I don't know if it's the gloomy weather we've been having or something else, but I have totally been uninspired to bake lately. I usually draft up my recipe ideas for the blog at the start of each month and while I did have a few ideas for April, I just could not get myself into a baking mood. I think a lot of it actually has to do with the fact that my husband doesn't have that much of a sweet tooth and whenever I do bake something, it just sort of sits on the counter for forever until we throw it out. I am also finally learning how to exercise my self control so sweets do not tempt me as much anymore! This lemon pound cake was originally supposed to be lemon meringue pie macarons. Yeah, that took a turn. I haven't made macarons since December. DECEMBER. I've had them on my to-bake list each month since then and I've just been pushing them to the side. They still make me nervous and when I found myself rushing to get a recipe up for y'all, I stuck

Healthy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Waffles

Healthy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Waffles

So...it's been a while. I know, I know. I tend to occasionally disappear from the blog without any explanation. I don't mean to do it, but life just gets so hectic sometimes. I seriously applaud all the food bloggers out there who have full-time jobs and families and still manage to keep things running smoothly. I work part-time and have no kids and still find myself with no time! I don't even know where March went but I was out of town for exactly 17 days (yes, I counted because I was away from my husband) and then the rest of the days vanished into thin air. And then it was April, but to be honest, April really feels like January in Ohio because as I write this, white flurries are coming down from the sky at an alarming speed. Like, what is life? And even if we have miraculously gotten ONE day that feels like Spring, we get an entire week after that of just the most depressing weather ever. I can't really say it's just an Ohio thing though because while

Vegan Chocolate-Hazelnut Tart

Vegan Chocolate-Hazelnut Tart

Oops, I sort of let Valentine's Day pass by without baking anything chocolate-y for you all. But..better late than never though, right? I've sort of been trying to be on a diet lately and I'm failing pretty miserably at it. I mean, when I say diet, I really just mean I've been trying to curb my sweet tooth. But it's SO hard, guys. I can literally do high intensity interval training 4 to 5 times a week but I can't say no to a Reese's Fast Break bar. And the worst part is every time I give in, I try to justify it. Like, it has peanut butter and that's protein so it's not that bad. Plus, I worked out. And the cycle repeats itself over and over again. So I figured out that I should surround myself with healthier sweets, that way the guilt isn't so bad and neither are the consequences. This chocolate-hazelnut tart looks so indulgent but it's actually made of wholesome ingredients. There's no refined sugar, no grains, no gluten, and
