If I Was Great at Baking I Would Make These...

I’m not great at baking , very sad but true. Yes, I’m able to read directions and measure properly but sometimes…things just don’t turn out right. I used to blame it on my oven but I’m realizing it might be me haha. It is for this reason that I will forever be obsessed with Semi-Homemade cooking with Sandra Lee. Sometimes it’s just so much easier taking shortcuts but I think we all know baked goods made from scratch are THE BEST! While I work on my baking skills I continue saving recipes that I hope to make in the future. Below, are the recipes at the top of my list. I’m most likely going to start with s’mores bars because…S’MORES!

Lemon Tarts by Paper & Stitch

I’ve always had a slight obsession with tarts and I’ll be honest it’s mainly because of how visually pleasing they are. But these are visually pleasing and they look scrumptious! Head over to Paper & Stitch to give this recipe a try!


Earl Grey + Salted Caramel Brownies by The Polka Dotter

You really can’t go wrong with brownies but when these chocolate yummies are combined with sales caramel, YES PLEASE! Find this recipe on The Polka Dotter.

Strawberry, Lemon & Elderflower Cake by Top With Cinnamon

This is a recipe I would probably consider healthy because of the addition of strawberries and lemons. Yes yes, I’m aware the sugar probably overtakes the nutritious value of the fruit but a girl can dream…

S’mores Bars by Pinch of Yum

S’mores. Bars. Nuff said!

Blood Orange Yogurt Loaf Cake by How Sweet Eats

Honey Lavender Cheesecake by Sprinkles For Breakfast

This is another aesthetically pleasing dessert. The color of the cheesecake is so beautiful and I can imagine the combination of the cheesecake and lavender flavor is just divine!

Raspberry Roll Cake by A Beautiful Plate

I’ve seen many great bakers on the Great British Baking Show fail at rolling their cakes properly so I probably won’t attempt this one for a while. I tried making a buche de noel in high school and it was a massive failure, but it tasted great!
