Confession time again! You see these babies? The brown, spotty, past their prime and about 36 hours from luring in fruit flies bananas? I love them. They’re my absolute favorite. I know, I know how gross that is. jacked-up banana bread jacked-up banana bread
How to cook perfect pancakes | Life and style Felicity makes her perfect pancakes. Link to video: Perfect pancakes recipe With hot cross buns already staling on shelves, and mince pies surely mere months away, plum pudding and pancakes are the only two foods I can think of that unite the nation for but one day a year. While more delicate sorts claim to find Christmas pud too "heavy", I've yet to meet anyone, regardless of religious affiliation, who eschews a Shrove Tuesday treat. Why we don't dare to bust them out at Easter too, or on fine September mornings, is a mystery to me. Pancakes are a remarkably versatile foodstuff: French crêpes, Indian dosas, even Ethiopian injera, all fall under the same delightful banner. How to cook perfect pancakes | Life and style

The Best Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe

Hummingbird Cake Recipe
Happy autumn! Happy Halloween! Pumpkin patches are open for business, black cats, ghosts, and sugar skulls are decorating every shop window, and crazily colorful winter squash are spilling their stripy, curvy glory across produce stands and farmers’ market tables everywhere. Being a Libra/Scorpio with a late-October birthday, I’ve always had an extra-special–all right, downright personal–appreciation for the seasonal joys of this time of year. Apples fresh off the tree, cider pressing, crisp air and deep blue skies, the vivid sunset hues of persimmons, pomegranates, eggplants, and peppers at the market, the slippery squish of pumpkin seeds scraped from a jack o’ lantern: somehow it all links up with the promise of birthday cake, presents, and the imminent delight of dressing up for Halloween.

Copycat Steak Burritos I’ve been in the mood for steak lately so I’m bringing you another steak recipe today! This time it’s for copycat steak burritos, inspired by that famous chain of fast Mexican food restaurants called Chipotle. While these burritos don’t taste identical to the Chipotle version, they’re easy and super scrumptious and will satisfy any burrito craving. Plus you can customize these anyway you want! I have to say, Chipotle is kind of our guilty pleasure.

Pumpkin Cupcakes With Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting | The Stir I couldn't believe my eyes this week when I saw the ad for Pumpkin Spice Lattes in my local Starbucks. Pumpkin Spice already? But there's still a little more summer to be had, isn't there? Of course, it was impossible to stay upset for too long; after all, this is lovely pumpkin -- one of my favorite flavors of all time -- that we're talking about! So, I ransacked my pumpkin-flavored recipes to find this one for Pumpkin Cupcakes.

Zucchini Cupcakes and the BEST Cream Cheese Frosting
One of my favorite things about summer is having berries for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. When I buy berries I usually tend to lean towards strawberries, but this week when I saw how plump and colorful the blueberries were, I couldn't resist. I immediately knew I was going to bake with them. There is something about their flavor that gets even better in the oven. Am I right? I will warn you though, these bars aren't overly sweet.

Cream-filled Hostess Style Cupcakes I came across this idea on Martha Stewart's website a couple weeks ago and just couldn't help myself. I was never really a huge fan of Hostess cupcakes, but homemade ones sounded pretty tasty. So I did some research, tested some recipes and discovered the best cream filling I've ever tasted. It will put any of those marshmallow fluff-based recipes to shame.

Pink Vanilla Pocky Cake Sometimes when you're stressed you need cake. Just a little 6-inch personal-size cake with flecks of vanilla bean throughout, and possibly surrounded with your favorite guilty pleasure - strawberry pocky. It helps you forget that you're making a wedding cake and a groom's cake next week. And the fact that you'll have to transport it in 592 degree weather.And that somehow you'll have to manage all this while looking fresh-as-a-daisy in your bridesmaid's dress. Clearly, I needed a cake. This is a strait-forward yellow cake recipe with an American buttercream from the SprinkleBakes book.

Cinnamon Roll Cupcakes

These cinnamon roll cupcakes are just too cute! I took them to an early morning tailgate, and it was a great way to enjoy cinnamon rolls without the mess. In the interest of full disclosure, I wasn't entirely happy with how they turned out, but it was all my own error.
