Mini Buckeye Tarts

Mini Buckeye Tarts | The Blonde Buckeye

This is a good one you guys – if you like peanut butter & chocolate, of course.

Let me tell you, these little tarts are not only so cute, they can literally not be trusted around this pregnant lady. Luckily I gave most of them away so I didn’t have to look at them anymore, taunting me from the kitchen.Continue Reading

Lemon Birthday Cake Crumble Bars

Lemon Birthday Cake Crumble Bars | The Blonde Buckeye

Lemon Bars are one of those always good, traditional dessert items. They don’t seem that exciting, but it’s something that everyone seems to love. I felt like they needed to be exciting though. What if, I had the best husband ever that randomly bought me the Momofuku Milk Bar cookbook?! Fortunately for me, that is a true statement.

Waffle Iron Sugar Cookies with Vanilla Bean Glaze

Waffle Iron Sugar Cookies with Vanilla Bean Glaze | The Blonde Buckeye

My husband and I have never been big on celebrating holidays like Valentine’s day. We are more of the “pizza, beer & ice cream with movie at home” kind-of-couple.

I found this recipe a few years ago and have been making them ever since, with no major changes. They are perfection. If you can’t get to a Sprinkles, these are the next best thing.Continue Reading

Mini Vanilla Bean Cake… and some other things

Mini Vanilla Cake | The Blonde Buckeye

Over the past few months, I’ve done my best to keep up with new recipes for you guys, but sometimes they were a little sparse… This was a combination of being just plain busy, but also INSANELY tired. Because… I’m pregnant!┬áIf you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably known for a little while about our baby boy, but I thought I should just put it out there (in case I start coming up with some weird food combinations). I actually lost my sweet tooth for a few months, but it is back with a vengeance and I have some crazy good recipes coming up!Continue Reading
