Gluten Free Apple Pie Muffins

And I’m back! Spring finals are always… insane. I was hoping to squeeze in an Easter/Pesach post, but alas, time absolutely escaped me. I made a wide variety of quick meals these past couple weeks, none of which I had the thought to take photos of to post here.

On the other hand, one of my closest friends came in town and begged me to make my Apple Pie Muffins. I decided to make the healthier version, and have updated that original post with pictures. I also decided to try to make a half recipe gluten free.

Bridgerton Soirée

Hello! A couple Fridays ago, Netflix released the second season for Bridgerton. I don’t know about you guys, but after the first season came out, I bought the first book in the series. Then the second book. Then the third. Next thing I knew, I had read the whole series and a good friend had gifted me the fanbook for the series.

I will not speak of spoilers for this next season, but as an avid reader, I was surprised by the route Netflix chose to take with the second season. While I will be interested in the following season, I definitely think they isolated some of the book fans from the show.

Anyhoooo, back to food. Ya know, the thing this blog is supposedly centered around. My friends, while not as interested in the series, were happy to come over for treats and an unofficial showing of the first episode the day it came out. I provided tea and goodies, lit some candles, and pulled out the blankets for adequate coziness levels.

Brie Bites

Heya everyone! Today I’ll be sharing the easy and coveted recipe for my Brie Bites.

But first a warning – be careful with these! I made these for my friends for the first time only a month ago, and since, all of my friends have asked me to make these every time they have come over since. (Don’t worry, I gave in quickly. This is a fresh batch I made for the Bridgerton Soiree).

These are simple, three-ingredient, and fast to make (and fast to eat too). They do not keep well, so they are best to make and eat immediately.

For these bites, you need Brie, your favorite jam (I prefer homemade or low sugar jam with these), and crescent rolls (homemade or container).

Preheat oven to 350*.

Start by taking the casing off the brie. I used a paring knife and peeled off the majority of it. It does not have to be perfect, the casing is edible.

Open crescent rolls. I used the Aldi brand, as shown below.

The canned rolls are perforated into triangles. I used about one triangle for two muffin tins, but if you want larger brie bites, use one triangle per muffin.

Pinch perforations together and cut into squares. I made 16 squares per canned roll but for larger bites make 8 squares instead. Put one square in each muffin tin. Add about 1-2tsp brie into center of crescent square, like shown below.

Spoon a teaspoon of jam over the center. Bake for 20 minutes until crescent roll is brown and brie is bubbly. Serve immediately.

I hope y’all enjoy as much as my friends did! These do have a gluten-free variety (using a gluten free crescent roll recipe) which I will provide the recipe for at a later date.

Redheadedwhovian Reborn

Ope! It’s been… a long time since I last posted. But! I’ve continued baking, and cooking, and creating. Through some persuasion from friends, I have been convinced to restart this blog and update with some tried and tested recipes from the past 7 years. Here are some photos of what to look forward to, but also expect lots of pug photos and themed party posts!

Wishing y’all the best and will be back soon with new recipes!

Happy Holidays!

This year Easter and Passover coincided, leaving a very sad Percy when they realized they had accidentally eaten a hot cross bun on only the third day of Passover. All well, it was completely worth it.

For Easter this year, we decided to make a traditional British Easter dinner. It consisted of Shepard’s pie, fried cabbage, chocolate chip hot cross buns, deviled eggs, and fruit with marshmallow dipping sauce. It was absolutely fantastic and everyone was stuffed. I also made dessert of copycat Reese’s eggs, mini cupcakes in pastel colors and bunny butt cookies, but barely any of it was touched after our meal.

Pictures and recipes will be linked and updated here tomorrow, but in the meantime, please comment how your holidays have been!

Fried Cheese-stuffed Zucchini Blossoms

yummilicious

Hello! 🙂 Before this recipe, I had never heard of zucchini blossoms. Due to the amazing witchcraft of the internet, me and my Granny put together probably one of the most scrumptious and also most unhealthy meals (with how many you eat, it becomes a meal) of fried, cheese-stuffed zucchini blossoms. But it was worth every last bite.

We made these for when my grandpa came home, but unfortunately for him, most of them were devoured the second they came out of the pan.

Let the deliciousness begin! 😛

White Cake

Hello! How are you today? I’m a little bit stressed today. And, I’ll admit it, I did a bit of stress baking.

I really love my cake recipe. It’s dense, but I’ve never had any problems with it even though I knew it was not the best recipe in the world. Today though, today was different. I was feeling adventurous and honestly not paying attention as much as I should have been. Although that likely wasn’t the best of decisions on my end (you know, the whole baking thing has to do with hot ovens and proper amount of ingredients…) but it may have ended up creating a pretty good recipe for a likely already good recipe.
