Apple Crisp Muffins

Apple Crisp Muffins

  Fun fact: the very first recipe I posted here on Planet Byn almost four years ago was for Oat & Apple Crumble Top Muffins.  There’s nothing wrong with that recipe, but there’s room in my life for more than one apple muffin! Last weekend my friend Aoife and I went apple picking at Chudleigh’s, […]

Cookie Butter Roundup

November 27, 2012 Bars & Squares

As I mentioned the other day, the most anticipated item from my Trader Joe’s haul was Cookie Butter. Everything I heard and read about it had me super excited and curious about the magic that would be unleashed when I cracked open a jar. First, let me try my best to describe Cookie Butter: it […]

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

November 2, 2012 Muffins & Scones

Okay! I lied! I am already thinking about Christmas cookies! I can’t help it! Yesterday I sent out a Save the Date email for Champagne & Cookies III! And Kristine just emailed me that the holiday drinks are back at Starbucks! Speaking of Starbucks (smooth transition), remember way back when I ripped off their Pumpkin […]

Apple Cheddar Scones

October 29, 2012 Muffins & Scones

When these scones were posted on Smitten Kitchen two years ago, my interest level was at about ‘medium-low’ even though Deb described them as “October on a parchment-lined baking sheet”. I’ve never really understood the whole apple/cheese combo, but with some white cheddar in the fridge and some Honeycrisps on the counter, I thought I […]

Dark Chocolate & Fresh Cherry Scones

August 22, 2012 Muffins & Scones

  In the battle for top stone fruit of my heart, peaches just win out over cherries. But the thing with fresh cherries is that I just don’t like to bake with them. This is mainly because there aren’t many left to use after I eat them all as a snack, but also due to a pre-blog […]

Chocolate Chip Espresso Scones

June 9, 2012 Muffins & Scones

I made these scones a few months ago, and they kind of got lost in the shuffle. I thought I would post them today, before it turns into summer fruit central around here. I’m that odd person that doesn’t drink coffee on a regular basis, but loves coffee flavoured things. For this reason, I’m that weirdo […]

Bran Muffins

March 9, 2012 Muffins & Scones

I know, I know, who wants to hear about bran muffins, right? But here’s the thing, I’ve been working so much the last few weeks there just hasn’t really been time for any fun baking projects. This morning I realized I hadn’t posted in almost two weeks and I didn’t even have anything to blog about. […]

Maple Walnut Scones

October 7, 2011 Muffins & Scones

Baby Wall 2.0 is here! Lydia & Andrew’s new baby Dylan Jackson was born last Sunday afternoon, while I was stuck at the most vile hotel in history on my way back from my work trip. I had my fingers crossed for the two weeks I was away hoping that this little one would ignore his […]

Royal Wedding Cookies + Tea & Tiaras Party

May 2, 2011 Breakfast

When you invite people over at 5am to watch the Royal Wedding, you better provide some good eats to make the visit worthwhile. Yes, I am one of those people who booked April 29th off work way back in November when Prince William & Kate’s wedding date was announced. My Mom, her friend Janet, and […]

Pumpkin Scones

December 2, 2010 Muffins & Scones

The sneaky thing about having a food blog is that you can make yourself look like a superstar by only posting your successes in the kitchen. Something turns out gross? Sticks to the pan? Fugly as hell? You simply don’t put it on the site (with the exception of these). So you have no idea […]
