These mini Vanilla Cream Cakes are a soft, dense and perfectly portioned dessert.

Hello, I’m Jen Farley and I’m a sugar addict. If you’ve been following along with my journey this year you are probably aware of my struggle to find a balance between working full time as a food blogger and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

These Spiced Acorn Squash Apple Muffins are exactly the type of breakfast one craves in the winter months- slightly sweet and full of spice

I’ve been known to bake muffins when life gets tough.

Butter is amazing and it does marvelous things to baked goods (and toast). But I’ve realized that sometimes I’m too dependent on it. If, for some reason, I use up the 10 pounds of butter I’ve purchased from Costco and won’t be getting back to the store for another day or two, I just assume I won’t be baking.
