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.

 

Lemon Bars Katrina Yoneda Tue, 04/14/2020 - 10:50

Lemon bars, a classic American dessert.

 

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.

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.

 

Champagne Sabayon

By Katrina Yoneda - February 17, 2018

This recipe goes back to my culinary school days at the Art Institute! I can literally remember my chef talking about the simplicity, but also the importance of this French-inspired recipe! It’s typically served with fresh fruit, & sometimes sponge cake.

Vanilla + Raspberry Cake w/ Champagne Soak

By Katrina Yoneda - February 13, 2018

This cake is a MOTHER. FUDGING. BEAST!!


This cake takes the cake!! Get itttt??!! Sorry, couldn’t pass up a bad cake joke! It literally took me one full day to defeat this thing (meringue kisses included). The result: BEYOND worth it. C’mon, this cake is soaked in champagne syrup; if that doesn’t scream Valentine’s Day then I don’t know what does!

Chocolate Dulce De Leche Tart

By Katrina Yoneda - February 12, 2018

I truly can’t put into words how phenomenal this tart is!! If you make one dessert from my blog, MAKE THIS. I guarantee you won’t regret it. It may seem a little daunting but I promise you, this recipe is way easier to make than you think!


The hardest part is obtaining a tart pan (FYI sur la table $11). No, target doesn’t carry them. I KNOW, wth—they have everything!!

Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Cream

By Katrina Yoneda - February 11, 2018

HOLY MOLY!!!! Those are the words I shouted after taking the first bite of this ice cream. Ok, the “moly” may have been replaced with another four letter word that started with an 'S' & ended with a 'T'. What can I say?! I can’t control it sometimes; I fucking LOVE good food. Actually, I just love food, period.

Blueberry Crumb Coffee Cake

By Katrina Yoneda - February 10, 2018

The ultimate breakfast in bed! The ultimate way to say, “SEE! I do love you!” :)

 

When I say this is blueberry crumb cake… I mean CRUMB cake. Half of the height of this thing is delicious brown sugar, buttery goodness!! I like a little cake with a whole lot of crumb *shrugs*. I bet half of you feel the same way. Am I right??
