Sometimes you need that extra somethin’ in your baking. Usually, I reach for Bourbon (god bless you, Kentucky), but lately I’ve been reaching for Amaretto. You may remember this lovely almond-infused liqueur from this california almond fudge pie or this incredible amaretto almond bunt cake.
What’s up, people? Are you ready for another round of the fabulousness that is Bundtbakers?
I mean, I can’t hear you through my laptop so I’m assuming you all responded with a resounding “Yes!” This month’s theme is Strange but good flavor combinations. I found some weird ones out there, particularly this avocado pound cake with raspberry glaze. But I think what astounded me the most was the thought of mixing chocolate and onion. What?
Happy New Year, Everybody!

Christmastime is here!
I’m so thankful and grateful for the smell of fresh fir trees, a never-ending loop of Christmas songs by Ella Fitzgerald, and my mom’s seafood jambalaya. Ah, Christmas..and I can’t forget about my bundt-baking friends from BundtBakers; they keep me on my toes. This month is hosted by Olivia Bogacki of Liv for Cake. If you haven’t checked out her blog please do so now. I mean it. She’s got crazy baking skills.
I’m a big fan of ginger…and maybe an even bigger fan of these vegan ginger chocolate chip cookies. Now, don’t you worry. We’ll get to the cookies but first, let’s talk about this wondrous root.
November is here! So it’s finally getting a little chilly-which means it dipped into the 70s for a minute during the day. I was oh-so happy because I got to wear my chunky red scarf for once. Of course, it’s gets a bit colder at night which means it’s time for almost everyone’s favorite-hot chocolate.
