Peanut Butter Cheesecake Swirl Brownies

There are few things in life I love more than the chocolate/peanut butter combo. Nothing can top it. It doesn’t get old. It’s sweet and savory and lends itself to all sorts of heavenly desserts.

Salted Brown Butter Rice Crispy Treats

I’m here to say that rice crispy treats have always been a mediocre dessert in my book. I eat and enjoy the sticky, crunchy bars, but they fall far below a good chocolate chip cookie, a piece of cake, or even a crumble. I thought all rice crispy treats were about the same, improving with a higher butter and marshmallow to cereal ratio, until I had these salted brown butter rice crispy treats.

Chocolate Wedding Cake with Strawberry Filling

This past weekend one of my baking buddies (and overall good friend) got married to his best friend, Levi. They’re the type of people who are honestly friends with everyone, so the wedding was a huge assortment of friends and family from all over the country. It was casual, yet so personal, and Christian was sweet enough to ask me to bake their rehearsal dinner cake.
