• Creamy Strawberry Lychee Popsicles

    It’s been pretty hot here in Chicago, so naturally, I’ve got ice cream on my mind. Last week it was all about my Baskin-Robbins-inspired Jamoca Almond Fudge Cupcakes, and this week I’m throwing it back to my two favorite summer fruits: strawberries and lychee. These Creamy Strawberry Lychee Popsicles are a cinch to make and taste better

  • Vanilla Red Bean Mochi Cupcakes

    If you love red bean like me, these Vanilla Red Bean Mochi Cupcakes are right up your alley. These cupcakes are really simple to make and they’re gluten free! Whaaaat? You’re probably wondering if you’re reading the same blog, but you’re in the right place–I promise. I’ve never dabbled in gluten free recipes because I’ve never needed to eat gluten free. It’s just a coincidence that I love mochi and it happens to be made with rice flour which is gluten free. Yay! These cupcakes are perfectly unassuming with a secret red bean surprise inside. These cupcakes are rich with vanilla and they are moist and chewy from the mochi. Also, they’re not overly sweet like regular cupcakes. I love that I can come home after a long day, throw these guys in the oven, and have the perfect little dessert in no time. Don’t hesitate to give this recipe a test run–you won’t regret it!
