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.
- Snickerdoodles – Soft and chewy, with vanilla and cinnamon.
- Chocolate Chip Cookies – A classic cookie. Also soft and chewy.
- ANZAC Cookies – A softer take on the traditional Aussie and New Zealand biscuit. Sweet and crumbly.
- Chocolate Crinkle Cookies – A fudgy, rich chocolate cookie with a cool design
- Meringues – Sometimes tricky to make, but very sweet with a nice texture.
- Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies – A peanut butter twist on the classic cookie
- Lemon Sugar Tea Cookies – A traditional tea cookie with a hint of lemon.
- Coconut Macaroons – Very coconutty, proceed with caution
- Pumpkin White Chocolate Snickerdoodles – A seasonal twist on the snickerdoodles, adding some tart spice and sweet chocolate.
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.
- Blueberry Crumble Muffins – Blueberry muffins are one of my favourites. By adding some crumble on top, it gets twice as good.
- Banana Crumble Muffins – Similar to the blueberry muffins, but more moist, and more banana.
- Apple Cinnamon Muffins – A perfect breakfast muffin. Filled with apples and cinnamon goodness.
- Lemonade Cupcakes – A sweet cupcake based off fizzy sodas. The original recipe I got was from Anni.
- Chocolate Peppermint Cupcakes – This chocolate cupcake recipe is quite fudgy, it pairs nicely with the peppermint frosting.
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!
- Halloween Spider Cookies – An easy way to turn chocolate chip cookies into creepy Halloween treats
- Petri Dish Jellies – A colourful science themed treat!
- Red Blood Cell Cupcakes – Red Velvet Cupcakes never looked so bloody and kinda gross (but so delicious!)
- 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!
What’s your favourite thing to bake?
