Halloween Confetti Cupcakes

Funfetti + Zombies = Un-deadtti cupcakes. I’ve been wanting to do a funfetti cupcake for some time, to make my favorite funfetti cake recipe in cupcake form. And considering the current season, I took the opportunity to do something I rarely do (in fact something I’ve only done once before with these pumpkin mummy cupcakes):...

Olive Oil & Pistachio Brownies

Have you ever wondered what would happen if you simply swapped the butter in a basic brownie recipe for olive oil? Amazing things, that’s what.

You could also use whiskey and you’d have...

Mini Angel Food Cakes with Fresh Whipped Cream & Berries

But I’ll readily admit that I’ve never made angel food cake before. I know, any baker worth their salt should have...
