Double Chocolate Squash Muffins

This year, I’m growing yellow squash and green zucchinis in my organic vegetable garden. Needless to say there’s an abundance and I find myself trying to use squash up almost every day.

These muffins are divine especially if you’re a chocolate lover. You cannot even tell there’s squash in it. My kids gobble it up and they don’t even realize there’s a vegetable in it. ūüėĀ

This recipe makes 12 muffins.

Lemon Poppyseed Bundt Cake

I love Bundt cakes. I own several different Bundt cake pans. I love the ones by Nordic Ware. They bake beautifully.

Why do I love Bundt cakes? They’re simple and elegant all at the same time. It’s also no secret that I love anything lemon. It is a bit difficult to find a lemon based recipe that has a good balance between the sweet and the tart of a lemon. This one here, my friends, is perfection in a pan. Sweet, sticky, a bit tart and a bite of happiness.

Lemon + Bundt cake pan = sunshine in a Bundt pan. And it was exactly what I needed the other day when the weather was wet and gloomy.

Crisscross Apple Crowns

I love making these for breakfast. They’re so different and so easy! They make awesome leftovers for desserts… You can play around with different variations to find your own preferred filling. We have a child that can’t really eat nuts here, so we omit the nuts in this recipe and double up on the raisins. Feel free to comment and share your variations on here if you’d like!

Apple-Cinnamon Bundt Cake

apple_cinnamon_bundt

Martha Stewart and I have a lot in common. For starters, we both are organizing freaks. We both like playing around with a glue gun. And we both dig a nice Bundt cake.November 15th is a National Bundt Cake Day. Who knew there was even such a thing, but it seems NordicWare, the company that introduced the bundt pan back in 1950, has proclaimed it to be so.

Needless to say, I like big bundts. This recipe comes from Martha Stewart‚Äôs Everyday Food magazine. It‚Äôs a super-easy killer recipe. Read the rest of this entry »
