Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl Cupcakes | Vegan + GF

By Katrina Yoneda - May 22, 2020

This chocolate cake has officially bumped up to the number one spot in my recipe folder! It totally booted my other beloved chocolate cake recipe… & IT’S VEGAN/GF! WHAT?! I’ve made it 3x in one week. I think I may have a slight addiction. It’s by far the most fudgy & moist chocolate cake you will ever bite into! That’s a promise. It puts all other cakes to shame. This is my new GO-TO chocolate cake recipe. My new love.

 

Cinnamon Roll Cheesecake

By Katrina Yoneda - May 14, 2020

If you’re looking for an excuse to have dessert for breakfast, look no further! Since this is considered a cinnamon roll cheesecake, you don’t have to feel guilty eating dessert for breakfast! Cinnamon rolls ARE a breakfast food, aren’t they?! 😉 You’re welcome!

 

This cheesecake has a crunchy graham cracker crust, filled with creamy cheesecake deliciousness, studded with cinnamon sugar crumbles, & topped with a dusting of cinnamon sugar & a silky cream cheese frosting!

How can you say no to this dessert?

Dalgona Matcha + honey vanilla syrup

By Katrina Yoneda - May 08, 2020

SIP, SIP, HOORAY!! & to that I say T-G-I-F!

…Just kidding, every day is Friday when you’re in quarantine! *one of the perks*

 

I know dalgona coffee is the new craze, but I got to be honest… I’m OBSESSED with matcha.

 

So naturally I just HAD to make dalgona matcha (aka whipped matcha goodness)! This recipe is kicked up crude mom style though. I made a homemade honey vanilla simple syrup that blends seamlessly with the whipped matcha & almond flavored milky drink!

Coconut Caramel Gelato

By Katrina Yoneda - May 02, 2020

Gelato. My yoga pants’ favorite companion!

 

Ahhhh Springtime. The air is warmer & the days are getting longer!!

 

Spring & fall are my absolute favorite seasons. It’s embarrassing how many times on our afternoon walk, I look up into the bright sky, take a deep breath in & say, “Godddd I love Spring… I JUST LOVE IT”!! I’m a complete nerd for spring blooms. What can I say? It makes me happy. ALMOST as happy as gelato makes me. Almost!

 

Baked Chocolate Donuts! (gluten-free)

By Katrina Yoneda - April 24, 2020

At this point I’ve just accepted that there will be no summer bod… & I’m ok with that. When you can accept something, it makes indulging in things like donuts so much more pleasurable! Hahaha! Joking(ish).

 

These little baked chocolate donuts = pure heaven. They aren’t overly sweet, which is something I really admire about them (yes, speaking like they’re my children). Seriously though, they are the perfect balance of dark chocolate with a subtle sweetness to them.

 

French Macarons (robin egg style)

By Katrina Yoneda - April 08, 2020

Macarons! One little word. A whole lot of practice batches!

 

Guys, I NEED to perfect the French macaron. I am on a mission. A macaron mission if you will!! For generations, macarons have stumped even the most advanced bakers. If there is one confectionary treat that takes practice—it’s these bad boys.

 

When I tried my hand at them for the very first time yearsss back, my batch came out like PERFECTION!! We are talking p-e-r-f-e-c-t.

No-Bake Funfetti Cheesecake

By Katrina Yoneda - April 05, 2020

I made this recipe yesterday & ¼ of the pie remains. Sadly, I’m not exaggerating *looks down*. There WAS ½ left this morning, but I decided to have a slice with my coffee (because why not?)… leaving me with a sad ¼.

 

I feel like there are two types of people during quarantine. 1: people motivated with their free time to work out like beasts! 2: people who are just baking & eating their feelings.

Can you guess which one I am? HIPS DON’T LIE.

 

Homemade Circus Animal Cookies

By Katrina Yoneda - April 01, 2020

These classic cookies have been on my to do list for a while now. Now that we’re in quarantine, what better & more valid of a time to eat my feelings!!! Am I right?! I really wanted to make something that would bring a little cheer to the world! It definitely brightened my spirits AND curbed my PMS cravings. HAPPY APRIL FOOLS to me! Thanks period.

 

Lucky Charms Cake

By Katrina Yoneda - March 14, 2020

What’s it been guys, over a year??! I thought I’d make my online return special by putting out a real banger for St. Patty’s Day ;)

 

So why do leprechauns hate running?

BECAUSE THEY RATHER JIG THAN JOG.
