Salted Brownie Granola

By Ashley | Breakfast , Dessert , Recipes

Horacio NEVER cooks or bakes with me! That is – until he heard me say I needed to make a batch of granola because we were down to less than a bag (oh, the panic!)

Tiramisu Torte

By Ashley | Dessert , Recipes

After lots of love on Instagram and Facebook I am finally sharing the official recipe for this healthyish yet super decadent tiramisu torte! Confession: Although I love the flavors of tiramisu I dislike how the texture and layers become very “muddy” and become one homogenous mess despite all the work that goes into each component. So I dreamt up this torte with more firm and distinct layers that also cuts and photographs so well! Each […]
