10 Recipes On My "To Bake" List

10 Dessert Recipes That Should Be On Everyone's 'To Bake' List

I believe chocolate therapy is a real, thriving thing.


One thing I'm missing at school is my kitchen at home, but not nearly as much as I'm missing the home-baked sweets made there. I come across a lot of delicious looking recipes on Pinterest, and have started a baking board so I can make them the next time I'm home! Enjoy looking at these 10 recipes, but maybe not while you're hungry!

1. Soft and chewy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies

I "didn't like oatmeal" until about two years ago. Really, I just didn't want to try it. Now, I have to make up for all of those years and try these divine looking cookies. The best part about this recipe? No raisins!

2. Flourless pumpkin muffins

I'll do fall vibes (and smells!) any time of year. Also, they're flourless!

3. Brownie bottom cookie dough cheesecake bars

Starbucks used to sell a cheesecake brownie bar that was SO good, but I believe they have gotten rid of it as I never see them in the display case anymore. These look like the perfect substitute!

4. Cinnamon donut holes

My friend once made these for a holiday party, and they are gone within a couple minutes- and it wasn't because she didn't make enough! They were just that good!

5. Soft pretzels

Nothing can compare to Auntie Anne's, but these might do the trick until my next shopping endeavor at the mall.

6. Classic rice krispies

You really can't beat a homemade, classic Rice Krispie treat. This one specifically looks better than average, so I'm anxious to try it out!

7. Chocolate chocolate chip cookies

I'm hoping these are the solution to my horrible spending habit of buying double chocolate chip Insomnia cookies very often. These look just as delicious!

9. Funnel cakes

I'm very curious to see if homemade funnel cakes even compare to those at the carnival. With my baking skills, highly unlikely. But there's nothing some chocolate sauce and whipped cream can't fix!

10. Skillet s'mores

This will be perfect for the summer night I'm planning to have a bonfire, but then it starts raining.

If you weren't hungry when you started reading this article, I bet you are now! Please leave me a comment down below if you decide to try any of these recipes out for yourself! I would love to know your thoughts!

11 Health Benefits Of Donuts You Probably Didn't Know

Now, would you like that glazed?

Think for a second about the last time you consumed a donut. Remember the sweet, soft, and delicious bread like substance that fulfilled your sweet tooth within seconds. Well, I am here to share (just a few) health benefits of the masterpiece that is, a donut. Keep in mind that everything you read on the internet is highly accurate, so these are just cold, hard, facts.

1. They are highly beneficial for your mental well being.

I am willing to bet that you can't eat a donut without a smile.

2. You can eat three for breakfast and reach your calorie intake for the entire day in one meal!!

They are packed full of gluten, so you are sure to have a full stomach after consuming 3 donuts. You just can't go wrong!

3. Not only are they fried, but full of sugar. Sugar gives you energy, therefore they are a necessary food group.

We all need our coffee in the morning, why not throw a donut in as well? Your energy levels are sure to be through the roof.

4. A cake donut is lower in fat, so if you are really feeling like a health nut, just switch from regular to cake.

Cake donuts come in many unique flavors, so you will not need to sacrifice taste at all.

5. Since donuts typically may not be on your regular grocery list, you could walk to the donut store and your workout for the year is complete!

Walk to a donut store near you TODAY.

6. They say to "eat the rainbow", get some rainbow sprinkles and that is checked off the list.

Sprinkles taste good, add some color, and make you feel like a kid again.

7. Some researchers say that the donut and coffee combo could help enhance your memory.

What can I say? The evidence speaks for itself.

8. When you get a jelly filled, you could be eating real fruit.

Natural sugars folks, got to have them.

9. Satisfying cravings is very important.

Indulge in a warm glazed donut when you get the craving. It is SURE to satisfy that sweet tooth.

10. We all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

If breakfast is so important, make it all day long. 1pm? Get a donut! 3am? Get a donut!

11. Your bank account also thinks that they are healthy because you can get a dozen for just $8.

For $8 you could get 2340 calories in a box. What a STEAL.

At the end of the day, donuts are sure to sprinkle a little joy into your life. They are great to consume with friends and with a cup of coffee on the side. Without these bad boys, life may be slightly more dull.

Also, donuts are cute.

Moral of the story, eat more donuts.
