Let’s Bake! – A Collection of Recipes

So today’s isn’t a new recipe. In fact, it’s a collection of all the recipes I’ve tried! You guys may know that I love baking (especially cookies). I aim to try at least one recipe a month. I’ve been doing this since pretty much the beginning of my blog, so I thought it would be fun to link them all in one post.

So instead of having to search through all of my food category when I’m looking for a recipe, I can just look at this one. Also, it’ll be fun to look back at all the things I’ve made and taken photos of.


Ah, my bread and butter. I love cookies you guys. It’s my go-to when I want to bake something easy and quickly. There’s so much variety to choose from. Half the recipes I share on here are pretty much cookies.

Cakes, Slices and Pies

There’s more to make than cookies obviously, and I sometimes branch out. I’d like to try more of these in the future.

  • Carrot Cake – A cake I used to hate and now love. A tart cake with gooey frosting.
  • Carrot Cake Balls – Carrot cake but in bite sizes, covered in white chocolate and cookie crumbs.
  • Lolly Slice – A kiwi classic. A sweet chewy slice filled with marshmallow treats.
  • Apple Pie – A classic pie. Flaky pastry encasing sweet apples.

Muffins and Cupcakes

After branching out from cookies, the next step was muffins and cupcakes. You again get multiple bite sized pieces, but a bit more filling.

Themed Desserts

I love playing with themed desserts. What people can come up with and share online is awesome! From creepy to cute, there’s no end to the creativity! I love to try my own hands at these. Most themed desserts I try are from my Nerdy Nummies cookbook!

  • Star Constellation Cookies – I made these for New Years, and these tiny bite sized lemon-glazed cookies were so good! It’s hard to try eat just one..
  • Smart Cookies – The mascot of Nerdy Nummies bring the chocolate chip cookie to another (adorable) level.
  • Chocolate Heart Cupcakes – Turning chocolate cupcakes into sweet love hearts.

You know, seeing all of these in one list makes me think I may have kind of a baking problem. I mean, these are all spread out over a year, so it’s not like I went and had a baking spree one weekend. I have been loving trying all of these new recipes and sharpening up my baking and decorating skills. It’s also been fun for playing more with food photography and close ups. All in all, it’s become one of the bigger sections of my blog, and I hope to keep trying more recipes!
