From the Oven // Spiced Snowflake Cookies

 

It may be sunny & balmy here in Sydney, but it’s still Winter, after all…and many of you are stuck in what they call an arctic “Polar Vortex.” Brrrr! What better way to get cozy & spend some quality time inside than while baking some delicious Winter-inspired cookies?! These are easy-peasy, melt-in-your-mouth buttery & delicious, and the subtle spice mixture of cinnamon and cardamom really takes these babies from basic to addicting. Stay warm, Lovelies!

Lemon, Almond & Ricotta Tart

Lemon, Ricotta, Almonds…it’s a classic Italian combination, and a majorly delicious one at that!! This light, naturally gluten-free, and insanely delicious tart is one of my all-time favorites. It travels well, and stays moist and delicious for several days, so leftovers will be just as yummy as the first bite. This would make a wonderful Holiday Dessert – just look at it! It’s like a giant fluffy snowflake! Try it for one of your Holiday Parties (or even for Christmas) this year – everyone will love it.

Pumpkin Buttermilk Bundt Cake

Thanksgiving. The Holiday of being thankful major gluttony is almost upon us, people! This means, my mind immediately goes to “what’s for dessert?!?” While a great Pumpkin Pie is one of my all-time faves, I decided to switch things up just a little bit this year. And so I give you what may be the best Holiday cake I’ve ever made/eaten! This Bundt Cake is moist, rich, and it has all of the spiced pumpkin goodness we crave around this time of the year. Try it simply dusted with powdered sugar…or lightly drizzle the cooled cake with an easy glaze of equal parts skim milk & powdered sugar. Or go for both, like I did! This one will make everyone around your table happy & smiley. Promise.

Nutella Donuts by Miss Renaissance IMG_1610-3 IMG_1611-4 IMG_1615-5 IMG_1618-6 IMG_1623-8 IMG_1626-9 IMG_1640-11 Homemade Donuts by Miss Renaissance

Doughnuts are hot, HOT right now. And don’t even get me started on the new Cronut mania!! However, when all is said and done, nothing tastes better than a deliciously warm & fresh homemade doughnut (especially when Nutella is involved!)- in my humble opinion at least. These doughnuts are perfect – they do require a bit of work and patience, but trust me – you won’t be able to stop eating them (I ate 5 in one sitting here!!) Make these babies on a lazy Sunday morning for brunch…you’ll definitely find yourself in a cozy, food-coma induced nap situation soon thereafter.
