Mini Oatmeal Crisp Cookies |

Mini Oatmeal Cookie Crisps

One of my favorite foods it oatmeal. When I lived in LA, I went through a phase where I would eat oatmeal mixed with a little peanut butter and few chocolate chips in the morning. In the sorority house, I would eat the Better Oats oatmeal that came in the pouch where you fill the water to the line and then heat in the microwave. I would add some granola to it and have it for dinner when I didn't … [Read More...]

Classic Apple Pie

Is there such a thing as too many fall recipes? I hope the answer is no. Cause we've been on a roll here at LDB! While pumpkin spice seems like a fairly new fall obsession (rightly so!), there is nothing more classic than an apple pie. The tart apples mixed with sugar and spices…not sure it gets much better. I have a super simple homemade pie dough recipe that I highly recommend. … [Read More...]

Banana Bread Cake w/Cinnamon Buttercream

I truly think banana bread is one of the best foods. Not only do I convince myself it's somewhat healthy when it most definitely is not (come on, the title itself alludes to healthiness) but there is nothing like the smell of banana bread baking in the oven. If you have noticed, I'm big on things that smell like Fall when baking. I'm big on Fall anything, really... we just ordered 7 Fall Yankee … [Read More...]

Passion Tea Lemonade |

Passion Tea Lemonade

In one day I got both a pumpkin spice latte and a passion tea lemonade.  My taste buds are so contradictory! I want the smells and the tastes of fall, yet I can't quite get rid of summer and sunshine just yet. So here we are. Passion tea lemonade and … [Read More...]

Buttermilk Pancakes |

Buttermilk Pancakes

I love 3 day weekends. I think every weekend should be a 3 day weekend and that working hours were 10-2 instead of 9-5. What a great schedule, don't you think? Ok, so maybe that is not realistic but it sure is nice when these 3 day weekends pop up … [Read More...]
