Roasted, Spiced Oranges on Angel Food Cupcakes #12wksxmastreats

A few weeks ago I picked up a package of mandarin oranges at the grocery store because I hadn't had them in a while and thought they sounded good. A few days after that I started thinking about ways I could bake with the oranges to bring out their sweet flavor in the best possible way. I decided that roasting them was something I don't remember seeing before and it would showcase their juicyness. I paired these with angel food cake because I didn't want a cake that was to heavy. I was thinking about a dessert that was light and refreshing while still reminding me of autumn.

Spicy, Moist Gingerbread for Secret Recipe Club Reveal Day!

Gingerbread is a standard for the holidays in my mind. It comes in all different forms, cookies, houses, cupcakes, squares...and the "gingerbread" flavor is in lots of different foods, biscotti, coffee, fudge...Sometimes there's nothing better than a warm fire and a big piece of spicy, moist gingerbread.
Cupcakes make that goal easier. There are less pans to scrub, and they're portioned controlled (my favorite part).

Pineapple Rum Tart! Week 11 of 12 Weeks of Christmas Treats #12wksxmastreats

This tart has a smooth rum flavor and a tart pineapple flavor under a sweet crust and fluffy homemade whipped cream. Who wouldn't want that?!? During the holiday season sometimes people get excited and bake with alcohol. On one hand it seems like a waste of alcohol, but on the other hand, the flavor is usually completely worth it! This Pineapple Rum Tart is definitely on the other hand. It's completely worth it!
