Last weekend I got to show my Japanese exchange student friends around Newport! We had so much fun exploring the beach, pier, shopping, and ofcourse eating! Come along with me as I take you through our weekend in Newport Beach!
Easy gluten-free baking thanks to Trader Joes'! Their pumpkin bread & muffin baking mix allows you to make our house smell warm and delicious! I love using their baking mix as base for desserts and snacks like this pumpkin walnut pecan bread. The crumble topping makes this even more delicious! Stop by your Trader Joes' to pick up a box of this gluten-free baking mix and get baking!
My new breakfast item! Perfect for the incoming Autumn weather! When the mornings start to get a little chillier, I usually like to get out my tub of oatmeal and make a fresh pot of oatmeal to start off my day. These Strawberry Fig Oatmeal Morning Bars are perfect for these chillier mornings! The combination of the oatmeal crust with the warm fruit filling all with a slightly sweet, but crunchy crumble is just the BEST! And it doesn't stop there, you can even double the portions and make this as a dessert and serve it with your favorite vanilla ice cream! YUM! Come join me as we make early mornings a little more enjoyable!
Part 4 of my Fig Series! These fresh fig cookies are perfect any time of the day, brew yourself a cup of coffee or tea, sit back and relax. I love how these pillowy cookies are slight sweet with a crunch from the walnuts. Come join me in the kitchen as I use my fresh figs from the backyard to make fresh fig cookies!
This is Part 1 of the Fig Series! It's fig season at home, which means eating fresh figs, baking with fresh figs, drying figs for snacking, and everything in between. Come join me as I show you how I like to use figs in the kitchen! Starting off this series with a Fig Clafoutis!
