Making a Comeback: Carrot Peach Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

I’M BAA-AACK!!! OMG, guys, I am so, so, so sorry for not posting in like a WHOLE YEAR. (Like what is wrong with me???) There is truly no excuse for me being so inactive, but imma try anyway. You see, when I started this blog two years ago, balancing it with school was super easy, but this past year of school was way more difficult and time consuming than the year before, and I just couldn’t find the time to ever work on my blog (and if I did have time, I honestly didn’t want to work on my blog because that would entail more writing and sitting at a computer typing…) BUT, now that it’s summer, I got some time! So here I am. Me again. Oh, and you may have noticed from the title, I’m “making a comeback.” And this phrase doesn’t just pertain to me; it also refers to Carrot Cake’s comeback. You see, there’s a lot of stigma surrounding carrot cake. Everyone thinks it’s just some gross old people food and don’t forget the basic principal of a carrot cake – vegetables in cake??? Ew, gross. But that’s where you’re wrong my friend…

World’s Best: Lemon Blueberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

I’ve had my fair share of coffee cakes. And I am 100% sure that this is the best coffee cake I’ve ever made or ever eaten. So you know this has got to be serious. Just imagine this for a second: an equal ratio of fluffy, moist lemony cake with bursting blueberries, lemony cream cheese filling, and buttery, crunchy, streusel coated with a tart lemon glaze. I mean, it really can’t get much better than that.

The Perfect Combo: Strawberry Cheesecake Brownie Cups

So you may be wondering, What does she mean? “The Perfect Combo”? And I would confirm, Yes. The Perfect Combo. You see, strawberries and chocolate are a classic combination and insanely good together. I mean, chocolate covered strawberries are pretty hard to beat. But add that classic flavor combination to another perfect combo, cheesecake and brownies, and you get something out-of-this-world spectacular! So basically, these Strawberry Cheesecake Brownie Cups are the ultimate mash-up of perfect combinations: strawberry/chocolate and cheesecake/brownie! (Really, wants not to love? I know you want to click the “read more” button below…)

Move Over, Nutella: No-Machine Cookie Butter Ice Cream

For a while, Nutella was the star. But Nutella’s time in the spotlight has been diminishing (although I’ll always love you the same, Nutella). We’ve all kown it was coming. Yes. I’m talking about Cookie Butter basically taking Nutella’s ever growing kingdom of fans and converting them to be on Cookie Butter’s side. Cookie Butter, you are evil. But anyway enough with some crazy story of mine, time to make ice cream for you! What could be a better combo than cookie butter and ice cream? I mean, you’ve got an ice cream that is packed with the speculoos cookie flavor, that warm, cinnamony, spicy cookie that everyone loves. And, this recipe only contains 5 ingredients and takes basically no time to whip up (it’s no-machine!).

Trendy AF: 4-Ingredient No-Machine Cereal Milk Ice Cream

Ah, food trends. How I love food trends. They are constantly changing, always interesting, very innovative, out-of-the-box, and completely delicious. Now personally I love cereal milk and have worked with it before in the kitchen. (Go check out my Cereal Milk Baked Donuts!) But seeing how its summer, what could be better than putting cereal milk in ice cream? Especially one that takes little effort or time to make because it’s no churn and only contains 4 ingredients? You really can’t go wrong. If that isn’t enough to make you try it out, I don’t know what will. 🙂

Let’s Scream For Ice Cream: 4-Ingredient No-Machine Circus Animal Cookie Ice Cream

So as you probably can tell, I love ice cream (who doesn’t?), and I love making ice cream flavors that aren’t available in stores. But what I don’t like, is working hours on a product when there is an easy shortcut. And here is that short-cut. No-machine ice cream is made with two ingredients (heavy whipping cream and sweetened condensed milk) and any additional add-ins you want! So when contemplating what new flavors of ice cream I would make, I decided to revisit one of the best cookies that brings you back to your childhood: Circus Animal Cookies! You know, those pink and white animal shaped cookies coated with sprinkles? So if you take ice cream, which is awesome, and Circus Animal Cookies, which are also awesome, you basically get an awesome explosion!

Summer Is Here: 4-Ingredient No-Machine Matcha-Oreo Ice Cream

Who doesn’t love ice cream? And now that it’s summer, ice cream is an essential staple that satisfies any sweet craving in the hottest weather. But making ice cream from scratch is just way too much work (and who even owns an ice cream machine?) and store-bought ice cream has limited flavor combinations (not to mention some of those sketchy preservatives)… So what is the solution? Obviously, no-machine, no-churn ice creams that can be whipped up in a couple of minutes! No-machine ice cream takes only two ingredients plus whatever add-ins you want and is so simple that if you mess it up, there is something sadly wrong with you.
