It’s officially the time of year when comfort and coziness are the only thing on my mind.
I hope that as time goes on I have reason to bring out the truly magnificent recipes i’ve been dreaming up in anticipation, but for now we start with a snack.
The actual coffee added to the batter amplifies the mocha flavor and elevates this cake from “good” to exceptional, so please for the love of cocoa do not skip it.
This bread reminds me of everything I love about fall.
I can’t think of a seasonal summer fruit that would star better in a caramelized honey flavored cake than sweet-tart plums that soften in the oven and become deep, silky, jammy wells of flavor.
A playful and delicious journey that I hope you’ll be taking very soon.
I wanna eat this on a lake at sunset or literally every hot summer morning for breakfast.
It’s the kind of dessert that’s best eaten with closed eyes and long slow pulls on the spoon as it leaves your lips, making sure you get every bit of chocolate off before taking your next bite.
If you’re fan of spicy margaritas I’m pretty sure you’ll love these popsicles.
How about a sugar cookie-filled Pride?
This would be a solid Mother’s Day breakfast plan if you’re celebrating tomorrow! Otherwise make it anytime but especially for beachside mornings, slow weekends at home, and any day when waking up queer in this world could use a little sweetness.
This recipe is perfect for this time of year when summer is approaching and a decadent treat is in order but the rising temperatures might already have you pushing the breaks on using the oven.
My friend Claire described it as the best strawberry cereal flavor but in muffin form and that’s totally it. You’ve got the sweet nutty almond batter filling in for the cereal, bursts of strawberry that are way better than the dehydrated cereal versions, and a sprinkle of white chocolate chips standing in for the creamy milk at the bottom of the bowl. Yes. You need these in your breakfast rotation.
Use the best chocolate you can find. Queer life is hard and you deserve it.
Ideally with a nice baguette, apple slices, or a really sturdy cracker like the ones from Trader Joe’s with all the nuts and grains and dried fruit and stuff.
The warm caramelized bananas alone are a treat, but coated in this deep maple and brown sugar sweetened sauce that essentially candies the walnuts – they’re mouthwatering. I would eat this every damn day.
I use these biscuits in all the ways. They’re my favorite vessels for breakfast sandwiches and swiping chili bowls but I also eat them hot and plain straight from the pan, or smothered in jelly.
Given that it’s Black History Month and we’re doing a lot of talk about celebration here since Autostraddle is turning ten, I thought it was only fitting to share a recipe for this pie that’s such a tradition in Black American celebrations.
There’s something about lemon and thyme that really makes me ship them as a couple.
I love eggnog, so I’ve taken it upon myself to write a recipe that I think even its most loyal haters will love. There’s no drinking the eggnog here, just using it to infuse the dough and glaze with warm winter spices and vanilla. The brown butter doesn’t hurt either.
