Gooey Butter Bars

Gooey Butter Bars

I had never actually heard of a gooey butter cake until recently. It is not something you come across regularly here in Southern California, but I am so glad I did. This cake is dense and rich-and a little goes a long way. I knew that this would be a great recipe to showcase the […]

Strawberry Buttermilk Rolls

Strawberry Buttermilk Rolls

Last week we were running our normal errands. We made a quick stop to the 99cent store where I scored 10 gorgeous mum plants. I absolutely love the 99cent store…you never know what gem you will find.  I really don’t understand people who put their nose up to that store. I think it is awesome! […]

Lime and Coconut Bars

Lime and Coconut Bars

Lime and coconut is probably my favorite flavor combination. I have made Lime Coconut Pound Cake, Tequila Coconut Lime Cream Bars, and made a massive 6 layer lime and coconut cake for my sister’s graduation. The slight tartness from the lime combined with the sweet chewiness of the coconut just works…beautifully. I made these for […]

Apple Pie Sugar Cookie Bars

Pinterest has changed my life. I am doing things that I would have never thought of doing on my own! I no longer receive odd looks from the hardware store guy, he just shakes his head and says, “Is this a Pinterest project?” I can envision ideas, then search for them on Pinterest for help […]

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls with Brown Butter Cream Cheese Frosting

I know that it is technically not fall yet, but I don’t care! I want pumpkin and apple everything right now! Do you remember a couple of years ago when it was impossible to find a can of pumpkin puree (there was a legitimate shortage)? I am pretty sure that it was due to the […]

Apple Brown Sugar Muffins

Apple Brown Sugar Muffins

This past week the kids and I went apple and pear picking and Apple Star Organic Farms. They were so knowledgeable and passionate about their trees. Before we started picking the farmer and his wife took the time to explain the different varieties and what was ripe and not. What I loved about this farm […]

S’mores Chocolate Chip Cookies

We’re keeping the posts simple for the next two weeks because we are in somewhat of a remodel here in The Seaside Baker household. I was crazy enough to have started everything while my husband and two older kids are galavanting in Europe (while I am sweating my bootay off). Once they come home and […]

Balsamic Strawberry Tiramisu

Balsamic Strawberry Tiramisu-No Bake!

I am a sucker for good deals, and tend to stock up a bit too much. Now this is great for items that have a long shelf life, however for items such as produce, not so much. That’s why when awesome sales come along like Whole Foods Market’s one day only sale on organic strawberries, […]

S’mores Brownies

Did you know that burnt (and I mean charred) items whiten your teeth? Well, at least that was my excuse following the first year I received my grill. I burnt everything! It was quite the joke in my house.   Wanna know what is even funnier? We have totally acquired a taste for burnt things. […]

There is nothing better than munching on sweet fresh berries or baking them until they burst with luscious juices. Since my refrigerator was jam packed with berries and we are planning a massive berry picking road trip […]

Mr. Rogers and Snickerdoodle Blondies

Yet another sad day in the United States. Innocent lives taken and too many injured. There are many political opinions flying around on Facebook right now, that I have chosen not to read. This, however, caught my eye. From this day on, this is how I will explain these events to my children. Mr. Rogers […]

Frosted Vanilla Bean Shortbread Bars

About a month ago I volunteered myself as baker for a party.  The party originally was supposed to cap off at 50 people, but the host decided to move the location in order to accommodate more people. Now the guest list is well over a hundred people. I quickly had to add to my baking […]

Lemon Brownies

Lemon Brownies

  I’ve noticed that lots of people have been tweeting about new buds on their fruit trees and slightly warmer temperatures, so I now feel comfortable offering spring time desserts. If you are still in freezing weather, make these, take a bite and close your eyes. You will immediately start seeing green grass, tulips, and […]

Caramel Pecan Shortbread Bars

This recipe is the beginning of my attempt to share with you all of the goodies that I make during the holidays. Because I come from such a large family, we only do gifts for my immediate relatives. The rest, receive a small box with homemade candies, chocolates, and cookies. Luckily for me, all of […]

Rhubarb Galore

Rhubarb Galore

As I said in my previous post, I recently picked about 20 pounds of rhubarb from our garden, and there is still about 20 pounds left. Every year around this time we make about 6 batches of strawberry rhubarb jam. This year, even after the 6 batches, I still had about 10 pounds of picked […]
