  • {Small Batch} Apple Turnovers.

    Apple turnovers are a fantastic fall and winter dessert. Honestly, they’re good any time, but I tend to make them more during the fall and winter months. Of course the weather is still a bit whack in St. Louis at the moment, but a girl can dream, eh? I have made these turnovers a number […]

    Anyone who’s a baker can confirm that macarons are one of the trickier beasts of baking.

  • Small Batch Iced Sugar Cookies.

    My poor, poor blog. I’ve been neglecting her a lot lately [yes, my blog has a gender, and is a “she”]… I have been back in the U.S. from my Germany adventures, so I don’t have much of an excuse. Shit happens, I guess. Anyway. June and July seem to be months of change for […]

  • Small Batch Vanilla Bean Cupcakes.

    Have I mentioned how much I freaking love small batch recipes? Especially these days. As I have mentioned before on the ol’ blog, most of the time, my coworkers and friends reap the benefits of my baking shenanigans. However, there are times in which one of the following scenarios occur: a) I’m not in the mood […]
