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.
It’s simple, delicious, festive, and so easy to make!
We all deserve the reward of eating a perfectly winter-themed scone curled up in a blanket with some peppermint tea.
Thanksgiving in the US is just under two weeks away which means it’s almost crunch time! Gotta finalize those side dishes, decide how many pies to bake, and start mentally prepping for the moment you confront your problematic family members and hold them accountable for upholding white supremacist structures.
What can I say, maybe my heart really is made out of sugar and spice and that’s why I need to eat so much dessert to fix it when it breaks.
