Classic Brownies

Brownie time!

Normally, I'm no stranger to brownies from a box. Actually, I usually prefer them from a box. They're super fast and easy and most perfectly fudgy. But it was a special occasion, so brownies from scratch!




These were deliciously fudgy, but it you like brownies more cake-like, bake or mix them for a tad longer.

Birthday Cakes: Marble Layer Cake and Coffee Buttercream Frosting

























Birthdayyyyy cakeeee. 

Over the past couple of years, I've made cakes or birthday desserts for my friends. I love baking process and then celebrating with everybody... but I seriously dislike the frosting and decorating portion. 

le sigh. I'll never get it.

The latest in the birthday cake extravaganza? Marble cake with coffee frosting!

Pumpkin Bread Re-Do

The last time I made pumpkin bread, I was less than impressed. Maybe the recipe wasn't the best, maybe my oven was on strike... whatever it was, I was disappointed.



But my love of pumpkin has been restarted, beginning with pumpkin ice cream and those pumpkin whoopie pies. Plus, I was inspired by my friend who legit buys whole pumpkins to make pumpkin bread. I, forever the lazy person, just got a can of pumpkin from the store. 

This bread is much better than the last and makes 2 loaves! It's the perfect pumpkin flavor and texture.
