Ginger Blondies

Ginger and butter are secret best friends. Like, we all know ginger hangs out with cardamom, and coconut, and yeah, garlic, but ginger’s got this secret side-bestie. Butter. Just straight up butter. These blondies are the public realization of their friendship and I couldn’t love them any more for it.

Hedgehog Cookies

I know you know this is totally not me, but accept it: I’ve made something cute. I don’t usually care for the adorable side of the baking equation, I’m far too practical to paint faces on my desserts. Until now. I was pondering the crisp autumnal air and started imagining a forest scene: hedgehogs, owls, and squirrels partying together amidst burnished leaves on the woodland floor. And once the image took hold in my head, I thought it might be fun to make a cookie inspired by that fever dream.

Bacon Jam

Want something unique to serve at brunch? I love a sweet-savory mashup, and this definitely hits the spot. Caramelizing onions in bacon fat is a surefire way to make your house smell good before guests come over! The dish takes a little time, and a lot of stirring (to avoid burning), but don't let that scare you away! Trust me, your guests will be clamoring for it.
