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.

 

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.

No-Bake Funfetti Cheesecake Katrina Yoneda Sun, 04/05/2020 - 13:45

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.

 

Lucky Charms Cake Katrina Yoneda Sat, 03/14/2020 - 17:00

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.

 

Cinnamon Roll Cake | GF

By Katrina Yoneda - October 11, 2018

Holy Toledo, this cinnamon roll cake is ruining my summer bod with a QUICKNESS :O

 

I normally have somewhat good self-control when it comes to baked goods. “Everything in moderation,” they say! Well, there wasn’t anything moderate about the size of the slice I served myself. Let alone the second helping. Bring on the stretchy pants!

 

Chocolate Coffee Toffee Caramel Apples

By Katrina Yoneda - September 30, 2018

Who else buys caramel apples just to eat the outside candy goodness, leaving only worm sized bites through to the apple?! Well I do! I’m the type of person who likes more chocolate & candy, less apple. If you feel me, hallelujah!! This little sweet treat ensures you get a little bit of the good stuff with EVERY bite of apple *high five*! It’s more of a balanced meal in my opinion ;)

 

Pesto Caprese Grilled Cheese Katrina Yoneda Fri, 09/28/2018 - 16:02

You know that one night a week where you’re sitting there fighting with yourself, “I’ve been eating really well! I deserve some fuckin’ carbs. I deserve some damn cheese! I’ll just slap a tomato on it & call it healthy”! Well, that’s how this Pesto Caprese Grilled Cheese was born. Well, that & the cold weather made me do it. Pair this with a hot cup of tomato soup?!?! DEAR LORD YAAASSSSSSS <3 <3

 

I don’t think this sammich needs much selling.

Toasty bread.

Hot melty cheese.
