Homemade Crock-Pot Apple Cider

Baker Bettie Beverages, Holidays, Vegan 44 Comments

Did you know you could make crock-pot apple cider from scratch at home? Set in the morning or before bed and in 8-12 hours you will have a house that smells amazing and fresh apple cider! A few years ago I learned that you can take fresh apples, an orange, and some spices and make crock-pot apple cider from scratch. My mind was blown. I put everything in my crock-pot before work and when I got home, I had the most amazing apple cider waiting for me. Not to mention my house smelled insane. Holiday candles don’t hold a flame (pun …


Salted Caramel Skillet Cookie

Baker Bettie Cookies, Skillets, Sweets, Vegan 27 Comments

This Salted Caramel Skillet Cookie is so incredibly easy to make and nobody will ever know it is grain free, vegan, and refined sugar free! The salted caramel sauce serves a dual purpose of the base for the cookie and also a decadent sauce to drizzle over the top!  I originally published this recipe as a guest post for the blog Fork & Beans in July 2012.  You may or may not know that in my real world job I am a private chef for someone with a very long list of food allergies. It is a fun challenge, to say …


Orange & Basil Rhubarb Oatmeal

A healthy breakfast recipe embracing rhubarb season! Baked rhubarb with orange and basil is spooned over oatmeal for an easy and healthy spring breakfast! I absolutely love rhubarb. Its distinct tart flavor is so unique and I get so excited when it comes back in season. I was at the grocery store this weekend and got very excited when I saw the unmistakable pink stalks sitting in the produce section. I quickly snached some up without even knowing what I was going to do with it. I love rhubarb season! I really need more rhubarb recipes in my repertoire. Yesterday morning …

Pumpkin scones with sage and spicy cherry jam just happen to be easily made vegan! Enjoy these warm flavors of Fall with a twist!  That time of year is here again. That obnoxious time, that I secretly love, where anything and everything is pumpkin spice flavored. And I hear both sides of the coin all the time. There are the people that are totally into it. All out pumpkin eeeeeverything. And they tweet and instagram and facebook it all. “First pumpkin spice latte of the season ya’ll!” You know the kind. Maybe you are the kind. I’m not judging. But …

Rosemary Lemon Cinnamon Rolls

Light and tender rosemary lemon cinnamon rolls are a unique and delicious take on the classic and they happen to be vegan! Regular butter and eggs can be used for a non-vegan version if desired!  I absolutely needed to get in the kitchen today and be creative. I haven’t had a free moment to do that in so long. Sure I have cooked and thrown things together here and there, but it has been so long since I’ve had time to really create. To let the creative juices flow and to really take my time with ingredients and the process …

How to make easy vegan chocolate chip cookies with few ingredients and no “weird” ingredients. These cookies are simple and turn out chewy and soft! I’m going to try something new here at Baker Bettie. I have been wanting to make some baking tutorial videos for a while, so I decided on a whim to just go ahead and try it.

Bourbon Blackberry Mint Lemonade

Baker Bettie Beverages, Vegan 13 Comments

This refreshing cocktail is filled with fresh blackberries and mint! Bourbon Blackberry Mint Lemonade is the perfect drink to bring to your summer BBQ!  I feel I need to apologize to the Vegan MoFoers. I had a plan. Really, I did. A plan to post quite a bit during the month of September all about vegan baking science. And it’s only the 5th day of the month but the plan is already shot to hell. When you’re only home on average 6 hours a day, plans easily go awry. So I’m sorry. I’m going to keep trying my best. And …
