Rustic Blueberry Galette For Two

This rustic blueberry galette is a simple yet delicious dessert, perfect for the summer with it's vibrant fruity taste. I've had the idea for a while and never actually made a galette before so it was fun to try something new. I made a mini one too, so this is a great little summer dessert for two. I add a pinch of cinnamon, nutmeg and lemon zest to really bring out the blueberry flavor and it works beautifully. What's a Galette? A galette is basically a pie without the pie dish. You use a shortcrust pastry like you would for…

Apple Pear Tarte Tatin (Vegan!)

If you keep up to date on my posts, you know I like to bake things that are on the Great British Baking Show. I never heard of tarte tatin until I watched it on the show. I am so glad I discovered it thought and decided to bake an apple pear tarte tatin because it is delicious! This is also the first time I’ve made rough puff pastry and caramel sauce from scratch. This tart is three elements: the puff pastry, caramel, and fruit. The traditional tarte tatin is made with apples and according to Wikipedia was named after the…

Ooey Gooey Cinnamon Buns

My brother and I have always had a weakness for cinnamon buns, especially the ooey gooey kind. My mom would buy the Pillsbury cinnamon buns in a can on weekends or special occasions and we would have them for breakfast. We would fight over who would get the last one, they were so good!  As we grew up, my mom realized my brother and I had food allergies so we had to find dairy free alternatives for everything we loved. We ate a ton of Immaculate Baking Cinnamon Buns after that which are dairy and soy free. It's a great…

This is not your typical Apple Pie recipe. Dare I say it, this apple crumble tart is even better than Apple Pie! Who doesn't love a crumble topping?

Cookie in a Cup (With Vegan Option)

I found this lifesaver of a recipe on Pinterest several years ago and have used it on the regular ever since! This easy cookie in a cup is just a handful of ingredients that you will most likely already have in your pantry!  There can be pros and cons to a single serving cookie though. Pro: the immediate satisfaction of a hot gooey chocolate chip cookie in under 10 minutes. Con: it's so easy you will make it all the time. I mean it. All. The. Time. It's that addicting!  This recipe couldn't be easier. On nights that I'm craving…
