Gingerbread Muffins with Spiced Crumb Topping

Tender, moist, fluffy Gingerbread Muffins with a generous spiced Crumb Topping!  The season of gingerbread is fast approaching. You’ve potentially experimented with gingerbread cookies, bars—maybe even a good old fashioned gingerbread house. But this winter, give gingerbread muffins a try. This is an awesome recipe for gingerbread muffins with crumb topping, and has long been one of my favorite muffins recipes overall. It doesn’t just come out of my recipe box during holiday season. That simply wouldn’t be enough time to enjoy these moist, crumbly muffins. I make them in the fall, the spring—even the heat of the summer....

Monster Cookies

I think most people have had a monster cookie at some point in their lives—or, at the very least, are familiar with the concept. Generally, they’re large cookie with peanut butter, oatmeal and NO flour, stuffed with yummy mix-ins.  My stomach is grumbling a little right now just thinking of these!

It’s not that I’m trying to keep these recipes a secret—it just doesn’t cross my mind that they would make good material for my blog. It wasn’t until one of my friends mentioned that I should put the easy hummus recipe I use up on the site that it even occurred to me to do so. My husband was raised on Mediterranean food. Hummus was a regular part of his diet before...

Chocolate Zucchini Cake

I consider myself something of a baking ninja. By this I mean I can sneak ingredients—yes, especially vegetables—into a variety of dishes, ensuring my family gets their daily greens. We all know picky eaters, the kind of people who won’t touch a dish that has vegetables in it on principle. That’s why we baking ninjas have to exist. And that’s why this recipe for chocolate zucchini cake is undeniably one of my favorites. The zucchini called for in this recipe helps to make the cake incredibly moist (if you know how delicious and moist chocolate zucchini bread is, then...
