When it comes to food, dreary dinners and leftover lunches don’t pack much of a punch with the kiddos.

What’s life without dessert? Averie’s blog (and also her book) showcases her sweet treats, which are so beautifully photographed, you can almost taste them! Her down to earth, conversational approach is friendly and non-intimidating, especially for beginning bakers. No tricky techniques here! Her tasty recipes often combine ingredients that are delicious on their own, but then come together to create something spectacular. Now, can someone please pass the Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Blondies?
