Pumpkin Pancakes

(Guilt-Free) Pumpkin Pancakes

If you’ve been following me lately (thank you!) I’m sure you’ve noticed the semi abrupt absence I took recently. It’s been… quite a month, to say the least. But I’m so excited to be back, and just in time for pumpkin season!! And don’t worry, these guilt free pumpkin pancakes are simple to make and

Bacon, Egg, and Brie Buckwheat Crepe

One of the most challenging things I learned as a young chef (and still work on today) is the act of simplicity. Even from the home cook’s perspective, “fine dining” or “gourmet” recipes seem to correlate to ingredient lists a mile long. And while in some cases that may be true, I find that some

Lemon Blueberry Granola with CBD

Ohhhh man is it hard to be back after vacation, amiright?? These past few weeks have been an incredibly calming, jam-packed, sun-soaked adventure. We were in Key Largo for an amazing wedding (and yes, the wedding cake was a hit!!); spent a week in a condo overlooking the white sandy beaches of South Beach Miami

Huevos Habaneros with Mojo-Spiced Tostones

I’m a huge advocate for “breakfast for dinner” meals, especially on nights when I don’t feel like cooking. They’re satisfying, quick, and require very little use of the hot oven (perfect for warm summer nights). And with the upcoming wedding and cake prep (did I mention I’m making a 3 tiered wedding cake next week??)

Mexican Hot Chocolate Rotiboy (Coffee Bun)

I’ve been working as a professional chef since I was 17 and over the past 15+ years I’ve encountered a fair amount of baked goods. Whether I saw them in text books, on TV, or in the countless bakeries I’ve been to, I can confidently say I know a lot about baking. Which is why

Blueberry Basil Brioche Swirl Bread

Fun fact: I’ve been baking since I was barely able to look over the kitchen counter. I was a 6-year-old who preferred to bake brownies and cookies than play with toys or run around with the other kids. I was drawn to the beauty and science of baking long before I fell in love with

Maple Pecan Swirl Sourdough

I love bread. I love eating it. I love making it. If I could, I’d do nothing but eat and make bread every day for the rest of my life. Homemade sourdough has to be one of the world’s most perfect foods. Just 3 simple ingredients, with a little manipulation and time, can produce a

Souffle Pancakes with Maple Caramel and Bacon Granola

I’ll admit, I was a little skeptical when I first heard about the Japanese-inspired souffle pancakes social media was becoming obsessed with. In my opinion, pancakes are one of those foods that you really shouldn’t mess with. I mean, its such a emotionally-charged, nostalgic food that it’s almost a crime to change it! Especially because

Chocolate Babka Muffins

I kid you not, trying to write a post about these chocolate babka muffins was challenging. Not because there isn’t much to say about them… quite the opposite in fact. It’s like listening to a Pink Floyd song or looking at van Gogh’s The Starry Night. You dont say a word, you just take in
