One of my favorite things about bread is how versatile it can be. You can take a basic dough recipe and add any number of fillings and it will be amazing. You can shape it in a braid, or a simple loaf, or cut it into individual rolls. I’ve been looking for a simple overnight dough recipe for a little while, and also craving big, fluffy cinnamon rolls. I was also feeling bit lazy, and didn’t want a dough I had to shape the night before. This recipe ended up being perfect, and turned out exactly how I wanted!
One of my favorite desserts growing up was a Belgian Brownie from Le Pain Quotidien. They are chocolatey, cakey and each one was just big enough to really excite an 8-year-old.

It’s absolutely delicious and that’s all that matters.
Happy Pi(e) Day! I realize this dessert isn’t a typical pie, and some may even dare call a chocolate pie a cake, but it’s delicious and I made it on Pi(e) Day so that’s all that really matters!

I was so excited by this idea, I literally started giddily smiling to myself and could not wait to get started. Continue reading
This Swiss roll…it’s inspiring. I made this for a dinner party a few months ago, and it is simply amazing! I’d been wanting to make a Swiss roll since I watched the first season of the Great British Bake Off, and was finally inspired and motivated enough to actually do it. It was a lot of fun, and immensely satisfying to successfully roll up a cake.
