Jack of all Trades, Master of (the Sticky) Bun

There is no doubt that Mama Doser was definitely dubbed “Master of the Cinnamon Bun” by all family members, neighbors, and all her children’s sports teams. Every few weeks throughout my childhood, she would treat the family to a post-church batch of cinnamon buns for Sunday brunch. My brothers and I would really thank God for…

These macaroons will make you go (coco)nuts!

It’s funny because I have always loved the flavor of coconut but for quite sometime as a child, I never liked the texture of coconut flakes. It was kind of similar to my love for orange juice but the utter dislike of pulp. I could just never accept coconut flakes for who they were. Sorry, you little pieces of coconut greatness….

You’re a gran(d)-ola old bar, you’re a high-flying bar…

Fingers crossed that the weather man is right and it truly is heating up out there in time for Spring fest this weekend! The sun is shining and the fruity punches are being made, so what better way to enjoy some outdoor activities and music than with some easy and healthy snacks? Setton Farm’s new…

You can’t have none of my nutella, ella ella eh eh eh

Pretty hard to believe that I just got back from my last spring break ever and have less than two months left of senior year. You know what this calls for? A new type of baked oatmeal….duh. These baked oatmeals really got me through lent this year. With the absence of desserts/sweets, a delicious oatmeal…

This will bake your mouth water….

I love when something or someone inspires me to make a new breakfast dish. My friend, Colleen McNamara, whom I just met this year through my good friend at SLU, Emma Garfield, is not only an avid Breakfastwithbex fan – making just about every dish I create – but is simply one of the cutest,…

Sweetie Pie, Don’t Go Baking My Heart…

You know what is literally breaking Bex’s heart right now though? The fact that it is -17 degrees in Canton, NY. No, I have not stepped outside today and yes, I am still in my pajamas. I am currently debating whether I want to face the eyelash-freezing, eyeball-burning, nostril-hair-icicle-forming, nose-reddening frigid air that is gusting outside…

You (peanut) butter watch out….

Nothing tops a mean pb&j on toasted homestyle wheat bread. Mmmm, melty peanut butter overflowing only a scarce amount of strawberry jam making for a solid 2-1 ratio of PB to J (because you’re weird if you like more jelly than peanut butter…I mean, common sense right there). Craving those toasted pb&j late night sandwiches that I…

Bex’s Best of 2015!

Hard to believe that the year is coming to an end. 2015 was one to remember for many reasons – 8 months spent in D.C. for the first half of the year left me with countless memories, professional experiences that have opened many doors for the future, new friendships, and a few more pounds along the way…

Gingerbread, Gingerbread, Gingerbread Cake…

Mmm, the flavors of the season! From peppermint to eggnog to gingerbread…how can one even choose. My roommate Abbey definitely knows me all too well. A Williams-Sonoma pull-apart snowflake cake pan with gingerbread spice quick bread mix for this year’s Christmas present?! Well done, Ab. Well done. With an addition of some chocolate chips and icing,…
