Whole Wheat Summer Squash Chocolate Chip Muffins

Baker Bettie Breads, Breakfast, Muffins and Quick Bread Loafs, Summer 5 Comments

These whole wheat summer squash chocolate chip muffins are so moist and tender! They combine zucchini and yellow squash with a hint of orange, cardamom, and mini chocolate chips!  I feel like a lot has changed for me in the last month. My real world job, where I work as a private chef, has been non-stop busy since I took it over a year ago. I am head over heels in love with the job. But because of the craziness with the number of hours I work, frequent travel, inconsistent schedule, and never ending things to do, I will admit, I haven’t …

Baker Bettie Pie, Summer, Sweets 11 Comments

This easy key lime pie recipe only calls for 3 ingredients for the filling and 2 ingredients for the crust! So simple and the filling requires no baking! Mr. BB and I just got back from a week long trip along the East Coast. Our last stop during the trip was in Florida to visit his parents. I knew I had to have at least one piece of Key Lime Pie while I was there. It is one of my all time favorite desserts, but one of those that I often forget about. It just isn’t something you often see …

Strawberry Lemon Cream Cake

Get this recipe for lemony strawberry cream cake that includes light and airy layers of yellow cake topped with real whipped cream and marinated rip strawberries. It tastes like strawberry shortcake, but better! I can’t even begin to express how awesome life is for me and Mr. BB right now. We have now been living in Philadelphia for 1 year and 2 months.

We were getting up ridiculously early and spending the entire day apart and getting home too late to want to do anything but go right to sleep because we had to …

This ice cream is incredibly creamy and intensely flavored with cheesecake and strawberries!  The second the weather starts warming up my mind is on a one way track towards summer. I’m ready for sundresses, strappy sandals, days that never end, and permission to eat lots of ice cream. Not that you really need permission for that. But it just feels less guilty in the summer. It’s like, “Hey! It’s 120 degrees so I’m going to eat some damn ice cream!” I’m already trying to push that summer …

Baker Bettie Pie, Summer, Sweets 12 Comments

Life is confusing at the moment. Life is more than confusing at the moment. It is stressful, and scary, and devastating, and filled with emotions I can’t even put into words. And I know that it is just life. These moments come and  these moments go and this won’t be the last time. I know that for certain. And it’s moments like these where it’s easy to question myself. But it’s also times like these where strength I didn’t know I had is summoned. And that is what I’m trying to focus on. I am stronger than I know. I can deal …

Lime, Honey, and Fresh Herb Fruit Salad

Baker Bettie Breakfast, Gluten Free, Paleo, Raw, Salads, Summer 8 Comments

Sometimes I forget too easily how beautiful and delicious simple and fresh food is. I have no doubt in my mind how addictive refined sugar is. Get a little bit too much in me and I can’t be stopped. It can get bad. Real bad. And anytime I start to realize that it is getting bad or that it is already far beyond bad, I force myself to cut it off for a while. To get myself back in the zone. And this is one of those times. I’m on a refined sugar boycott. I seriously need to stop procrastinating …
