    Perfect Cinnamon Rolls

    One of the recipes I’ve wanted to have in my back pocket is the perfect cinnamon roll. Not just any cinnamon rolls, I wanted people to start drooling when they heard that Sam is making her cinnamon rolls. In my quest to find these Perfect Cinnamon Rolls I’ve tried LOTS of different recipes over the years. One hour recipes, over-night recipes, recipes that make only 8 rolls, and even recipes that make 8 pans of rolls! Some of them were delicious and others sadly were a little disappointing. But even after trying all of those recipes I was still looking for the cinnamon rolls that I could call mine.  …

  • Grapefruit Mini Muffins

    There’s something about pink grapefruit that just makes me smile. Well, there is the fact that they are pink and that happens to be my favorite color. And the fact that they are citrus, which is one of my favorite smells…ever. Side note, have you tried the grapefruit La Croix, it is lit. (Are the cool kids still saying “lit”? Man, I’m feeling old.)     Anyways, back to the muffins. Aren’t they the cutest! The idea for these Grapefruit Mini Muffins came into my life back in January when I made a batch of lemon poppy seed muffins and thought, hmm…I wonder if anyone ever makes grapefruit muffins? Once…

  • Whole Wheat Mini Chocolate Chip Muffins

    It’s been months since I’ve posted a new muffin recipe and that’s just not fair to you or to me. Today I have a new recipe for whole wheat muffins that are dotted with mini chocolate chips. Aren’t all muffins better with chocolate chips?     These muffins start with whole wheat flour and I love the slight nuttiness that it gives them. If you don’t want to use whole wheat flour, you can easily substitute it with all-purpose flour. I reduced the sugar to 2/3 cup, so these muffins are only slightly sweet, but adding the mini chocolate chips gives them just that extra little bit of sweetness. I…

    Y’all, my Christmas tree is going up this weekend and Sam’s Christmas Treats is coming back to the blog next week! I’m so excited about the recipes I have to share with you!   Before we get caught up in holiday baking today we’re going to talk about something that there’s no guilt in eating all year around.

It was delicious and today I’m sharing a recipe for Double Chocolate Banana Bread!     Let’s talk bananas for a minute. There are…

  • Cheese Bread

        Today we’re taking it back to one of the first recipes I posted here on the blog. I’ve updated this post with new photos and I want to make sure all of my new readers know they need to try it! It’s now officially fall and over the weekend it was in the 90s in Philly! So, I decorated for fall while wearing shorts and drinking a pumpkin spice iced coffee.     Let’s talk about this Cheese Bread. Fluffy biscuit like bread that has a crispy crust of parmesan and is dotted with melted cheese. It is perfect served with all of your favorite winter soups (here…

  • Pumpkin Spice Crumb Muffins

    Ya’ll, it’s pumpkin time!     When September rolls around I always find myself missing summer, but my love of fall and everything that goes along with it helps me get through it. lol. I remember the first time I fell in love with fall, it was six years ago when I moved to Philadelphia from South Carolina and I finally understood what people had been talking about!     I don’t think there would be a better way to celebrate the start of fall than with a new pumpkin muffin recipe! Do you share my love of fall and all things pumpkin?     Before we get into the…

  • Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

      I have been a fan of pumpkin muffins for as long as I can remember and a couple of years ago I decided to try pumpkin pancakes for a fall Saturday morning treat. It was love at first bite! I try to keep them special and only allow myself to make them in the fall, but it’s not easy.     These Pumpkin Spice Pancakes are light and fluffy and delightfully spiced. The pumpkin puree gives these pancakes a nice flavor and a rich color that just looks like fall. They are delicious when served with maple syrup and a sprinkle of cinnamon, but sometimes I splurge and top…

  • Pumpkin Muffins

      Fall officially starts this week!! Are you ready? I pulled out my fall decorations on Saturday and I’m loving how festive our house is looking. Now that it looks like fall in here it’s time for fall food. Let’s be honest here, I’ve been eating these Pumpkin Muffins for weeks and think they are the perfect way to celebrate the changing of seasons.     Back when I was in college I had a friend who sent me regular care packages and she often included these muffins. Care packages with homemade baked goods were always a bright spot for a college student living away from home! After I graduated she shared…
