Luxurious Banana and Cinnamon Chip Muffins

This came from my determination to use cinnamon chips in muffins – they seem to be far more popular in cookies, but for me, cinnamon chips and bananas seemed like the most obvious muffin possible.  So as a result -I converted the basic Hummingbird Bakery recipe for muffins to include bananas and cinnamon chips.  Very […]

Candy Kittens and Double Chocolate Macarons

I’m old.  Not in reality – I’m only 25 years old, but I will admit, the stereotype of the drifting early 20s has had little to do with my reality – I’m working in a fairly high pressured environment, studying, planning my wedding, running a household, dealing with OCD a continent away from my support […]

Today I bring you a guest post from a fellow “feminist baker”, my great friend Becca – she normally feminist blogs over at Thoughts of a Lost Girl, but she’s taking a break today to share this recipe – perfect for gift-giving for non-baking friends!

Google Local and Whoopie Pie Making

Are any of y’all on Google Local?  I know, I wasn’t, but there’s actually a really cool idea behind it  – instead of reading generic reviews from people you don’t know, it gives you a chance to hear from people you’re connected to – those whose opinion you know and trust, rather than randomers on […]
