Currently working on updating my site so excuse appearances (and long, frequent absences) posts and layout coming soon! Check me out on instagram in the meantime @peaceofcakebakes


Dorie Greenspan’s Whoopie Pies

First of all, massive apologies for the LONG hiatus. I've been busy, I guess. It's not like I haven't baked anything, or taken photos. I recently downloaded all of the photos on my memory card and I have like 4 posts worth of that will happen soon. I have a break coming up in February... Continue Reading →

Ultimately, I chose the lemon bar cheesecake because of how summery it is. The ricotta in the cheesecake filling makes... Continue Reading →

Weeknight Meals: Black Bean Burgers

Finally, a post that isn't 100% about dessert. This is hard for me to do, because baking things that aren't good for you seems to be something at which I excel. I was inspired by this food52 article on how to create your own veggie burgers without using a recipe. The first logical step to creating... Continue Reading →
