Pumpkin Assorted Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’m back from France! Thanks for being patient for new recipes. And also for following along on @abeebakes Instagram. Before I left, I had a craving for pumpkin and decided to bake these. They’ve been on my blog for a long time, but they needed a photo update. So here they are again. 🙂 They…

Old Fashioned Raspberry Cobbler

One of the best aspects of having a blog and an Instagram account dedicated to it’s content, is the people you get to share it with. Desserts, and food in general, truly bring people together. Old friendships have resurfaced and new friendships have blossomed since creating A Bee Bakes. @dedric12 is a new, albeit virtual,…

Nectarine Upside-Down Cake

    Every month or so, I post a story on Instagram (@abeebakes) with my latest “baking fails.” All of my recipes are adapted or inspired by others, and sometimes the changes that I make (reducing sugar, changing fruit, adding spices, using healthier ingredients, etc.) don’t always work, or at the bare minimum, require quite…

Vanilla Panna Cotta with Raspberry Coulis

I consider myself very lucky to have tasted my very first panna cotta in Italy. I chose a vanilla panna cotta with a thick caramel sauce on top. Since that day, I’ve been obsessed with panna cotta in any and all forms. Perhaps you recall these two: Mango Panna Cotta and Nutella & Vanilla Bean Panna Cotta. If…

Blini

Thank you for participating in the @abeebakes poll on Instagram! My 24 hour story on Instagram asked if you’ve ever eaten a blini…and the results were fascinating. Every American follower voted “no” and every French follower voted “yes.” Every single one (of those who voted)! I had expected to have an almost 100% “yes” response,…

Marshmallow Nutella Cream

  Happy post Independence day! I presume the following may be leftover: some wine, some beer, and…where I come into the picture….some marshmallows. Now, if you made the S’mores No-Bake Bars or the S’mores Cookie Bars, chances are you have some extra marshmallows. Or maybe you’ll be tempted to restock for this recipe. Unlike most traditional mousses, this…

Waffles

Recently I posted a 24 hour poll on @ABeeBakes Instagram. The question was “what do you prefer, waffles or pancakes?” The winner? Waffles. By a long shot! This has stayed with me for longer than I care to admit. I’m a loyal pancake lover, but never turn away from waffles. I am after all, a carb…

Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

If you like peanut butter, you’ll like these. If you like nutter butter’s, you’ll like these. If you like the Girl Gcout peanut butter cookie “do-si-do’s”, you’ll like these. Even Fabien, who doesn’t like peanut butter, somehow was able to help polish these off. The peanut butter poll I had on @abeebakes Instagram asked who…
