Lemon Blueberry Scones

Summer is coming to a close, and I’m regretting having not taken advantage of the months of delicious fresh fruit. As a final scramble to appreciate wonderful produce, I decided to whip up some incredibly refreshing blueberry lemon scones. With real, fresh blueberries and fresh-squeezed lemon juice these breakfast treats are absolutely delicious!

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Are there some bananas on your counter getting just a little too ripe? For some reason, I’ve been very bad lately about eating them up before the start getting spotted and brown, so yesterday I made a quick decision to whip up some muffins for breakfast with the 3 bananas I had on there way out. What a great decision that was! This recipe serves up some moist banana muffins with just the perfect amount of chocolate chips.

Key Lime Pie Tartlets

A good friend of mine has been dropping hints for months that her favorite flavor of baked goods is Key Lime Pie. I always shied away from it because I myself had never tried one before! But this past week was her birthday so it felt like the perfect time to finally whip up this dessert. I chose to create individual little tart-lets for a yummy but mini-sized dessert.

S’mores Cupcakes

What says summer to you? Is it beaches and lemonade, swimming pools and ice cream, or is it campfires and- you guessed it- S’MORES. Everybody loves s’mores (okay, maybe some people don’t) and for me they remind me of summertime bonfires. I wanted to incorporate the flavors into a treat that can be enjoyed with or without the fire (since I don’t have a backyard). So I made these cupcakes! With a graham cracker crust, chocolate cake, a smooth chocolate ganache filling, and marshmallow frosting these are just like the real thing!

Baked Vanilla Donuts

Recently I was given a donut pan, and I was so excited to put it to use! If you don’t have one, they are relatively cheap to purchase (buy one here for $8.99). To start, I decided to just whip up some vanilla donuts, mostly because I wanted to make some brightly colored glaze. I love opening up a donut box that has all different colors and sprinkles! This recipe makes just six donuts, but it can easily be doubled. Plus these donuts are baked, rather than fried. They are still by no means healthy, but it’s definitely better than frying them in oil! Whip these up on a Sunday morning and decorate them with all the rainbow sprinkles you can find!

Skinny Summer Fruit Tarts

Summer is quickly approaching, and so is swimsuit season! The era of comfort food and over-sized sweaters is behind us, so I decided to take a shot at a lighter, low-cal dessert. I’ve always been hesitant with this. While I personally love eating healthy foods, I know when it comes to dessert, swapping ingredients can seriously compromise flavor. These fruit tarts aren’t quite as indulgent as full-fat ones might be, but they are much more guilt-free! They still taste sweet and refreshing, and you can head straight to the pool after!

Fruit Pizza

Fruit Pizza

It’s a big statement, but I honestly believe Fruit Pizza is one of my favorite desserts. Yeah, I said it! After trying this easy and no-fuss recipe, I discovered the simplicity of the preparation does not at all take away from the deliciousness of the dish! Below you’ll find an easy-baking recipe, but nobody will know you took a few shortcuts once they see how beautiful this dessert is.
