(Why I Made) Gluten Free/ Vegan Chocolate Chip Blondies

GF/V/NF/SF Chocolate Chip Blondies | The Blonde Buckeye

My posts have been sparse recently, to say the least. Not only is this because I had a scrumptious little baby boy back in May, and mom life is BUSY!!! But also because I have some new dietary restrictions thanks to my son’s food allergies. Since I searched for women with similar stories, I decided to share mine, in hopes that it might help someone else going though the same thing. Don’t worry, this isn’t turning into a “mom blog”, but because my recipes will change for now, I felt I needed to let you know why. This blog is all about the food, and will continue to be!!Continue Reading

Buckeye Crunch Brownies

Buckeye Crunch Brownies | The Blonde Buckeye

These are UNBELIEVABLE. Seriously. I freaked out about these. Everyone else freaked out too. They’re that good. Think like, a crispy, gooey, peanut buttery, candy bar brownie? They are died-and-went-to-heaven good.

White Chocolate Green Tea Kit Kat Cookies | The Blonde Buckeye

I’m not sure if you knew how many different Kit Kat flavored there are, but there are a TON! My husband loves Asian food more than anyone I know, so when I spotted Green Tea Kit Kats at our local Japanese market I had to try them. Even though I’m not huge into green tea […]

Flourless Peanut Butter Oat Cookies

Flourless Peanut Butter Oat Cookies | The Blonde Buckeye

I’m slowly getting back into cooking and baking after having the little guy. Trying to plan baking times with napping times has proved to be much harder than expected! Ah the joys of motherhood… Now that I’ve started again, I remember the main reason I love to bake; to bake for other people. Of course, I […]

Oh hi!!! Long time, no see. I’ve been on a baby break! Our little one arrived a few short weeks ago so I’ve been taking a little breather from the blog. Don’t worry though, I have some new recipes ready to write so it should be soon. In the meantime, I’m just hanging out with […]

Cinnamon & Chocolate Chip Blondies

Cinnamon & Chocolate Chip Blondies | The Blonde Buckeye

Chocolate and cinnamon?! I mean, come one. Another favorite combo of mine. These blondies sort of remind me of a breakfast coffee cake, but with the addition of chocolate. Not only did I use cinnamon in the batter itself, but I added cinnamon chips. If you haven’t had cinnamon blondies and you’re a cinnamon lover – […]

Remember these perfect whole wheat waffles? How could you not. Here is round 2, as promised. I turned these delicious waffles into french toast!

Light & Crispy Whole Wheat Waffles

Light & Crispy Whole Wheat Waffles | The Blonde Buckeye

I love waffles. You know this. But I also love whole wheat waffles… except when they’re dense bricks. Whole wheat baked goods sometimes have a problem staying the light and fluffy consistency you know. I often use half all-purpose flour and half whole wheat to avoid this. Not these waffles. They are THEE best whole […]

Margarita Mini Cakes

Margarita Mini Cakes | The Blonde Buckeye

Happy Cinco de Mayo! I love making ‘themed’ desserts, and since we had a little double-dinner-date with some friends last night, I made these Margarita Mini Cakes. Since I don’t want to get my unborn child tipsy, I left out the tequila. But I added it to the recipe as an option, just in case […]
