Lemon Blueberry Cornmeal Pancakes

Can you believe it’s been a whole SIX weeks since I’ve shared a blueberry pancake recipe with you?! I know, it’s a little ridiculous. And by “it,” I mean me. But shortly after I shared the recipe for blueberry banana pancakes, I came up with these lemon blueberry cornmeal pancakes and couldn’t NOT share them with you, because they are all kinds of amaaazzzing.

Cranberry Hazelnut Biscotti

Did you know that the word biscotti comes from the neo-Latin word biscoctus, meaning “cooked twice”? I just learned that in the course of writing this post – I did some very scholarly research Wikipedia searching.

Luckily, apples are one of the few fruits that can easily be found in good supply year-round, so you can easily make this apple spice cake whenever you feel like it! Continue reading

Hawaiian Pizza Gnocchi

My university is on break this week. Most people I know seem to be fleeing Michigan for warmer places, but since I’m staying in town, I’m leaving it up to my food to transport me (mentally) to balmy, faraway destinations. Last week I shared a tropical version of carrot cake with you, so we’re all set on the dessert front (which is, incidentally, how my family often works – make dessert first and figure out dinner later). Today, for our entrée, I’ve made us some Hawaiian pizza gnocchi! Continue reading
