Cardamom Cinnamon Rolls

Cardamom Cinnamon Rolls

So everyone’s been posting apple and pumpkin recipes. I am also trying to convince myself to make the transition. Fall has it’s own charm, but it’s hard to bid goodbye to summer! These Cardamom Cinnamon Rolls make for a great breakfast in the winter season. This was my first yeast recipe and I can tell you I wasn’t disappointed.

No-Bake Cashew Cream Chocolate Cheesecake

My quest to find a healthy yet impressive chocolate cake recipe for my mother’s birthday, lead me to find this amazing No-Bake Cashew Cream Chocolate Cheesecake recipe. I can’t bake anything very rich for her. She is very specific about her diet. Last year I baked the Chocolate Espresso Mousse Cake for her. She had liked it so much. She prefers a light silky texture to her cakes. Instead of dense chocolate truffle cakes, she prefers mousse cakes or cheesecakes. Since I baked the mousse cake last year, I zeroed in on a cheesecake for this birthday. I searched the […]

I have been trying to motivate myself to make something without chocolate! I must tell you, it’s very difficult :D. Even these Peanut butter muffins with oat streusel that I baked yesterday needed some last minute nutella filling and chocolate chips sprinkled on top!
