First of all, can we just say a huge Happy Birthday to Joanna! Happy Birthday, girl! These are for you! I have had the privilege of getting to know Joanna this past year and she really is just one of the best humans I know. It’s not only so fun working with her and creating content here on Jojotastic, but she’s also been a wonderful mentor and is so kind and genuine with her knowledge and time. If I ever have a random blogging or business question, she’s always quick to answer and gives great advice. And then we also totally just gush over our love of chickens and wiener dogs. So join me in wishing her the happiest of birthdays and celebrate with us and these Ultimate Funfetti Birthday Pop Tarts!

Alright, alright, who’s ready for all the December festivities!? Now that Thanksgiving is out of the way, I’m full steam ahead on the holidays! Usually, my family enjoys homemade bear claws on Christmas morning. However, this year these insanely delicious, gooey Cranberry Orange Cinnamon Rolls may just edge them out! This recipe is a classic with a holiday twist. The filling is heavily perfumed and infused with orange zest, while the rolls are bathed in a tangy cranberry glaze. The tanginess of the cranberry balances out the sweet, pillowy-soft dough. That magenta glaze is undeniably pretty, too, so they have holiday festive vibes written alllll over them.
Alright, let me start by saying I know Brussels sprouts can be a very polarizing vegetable. Truth be told, I wasn’t always a fan. If that’s you, too, I get it! I also think it really comes down to whether or not they’ve been cooked properly. Technique here makes all the difference… crispiness is the key! Getting the outside nice and crispy will not only create a more pleasant and addictive mouthfeel, but will also caramelize the natural sugars and deepen their flavor. In other words: DELICIOUS. Trust me when I say once you taste these Crispy Brussels Sprouts with Caesar Dressing, you’ll be craving those little green morsels all season long!
Whoopie pies should be the next cupcake. They are a cake sandwich basically, so what’s better than that? Not much. These Spiced Persimmon Dark Chocolate Whoopie Pies are a fun take on the classic chocolate/vanilla combo by combining some of Fall’s best flavors: sweet, honey-like persimmons and warm, cozy spices. We start with classic buttermilk dark chocolate cake-like cookies and stuff them with a delicious spiced persimmon buttercream. The sweet, spiced filling is the perfect pairing against the rich, tender dark chocolate little cakes.
I’m not sure how we’ve already arrived at mid-October, but here we are! I wanted to share a recipe that felt decidedly autumnal and that can only mean one thing: pumpkin. Wanna know a secret? I don’t actually like pumpkin pie… I know, what?! I’m not sure why because I love creamy textures and I love the flavor of pumpkin in other things, but I’ve just never been a fan of the classic pumpkin pie. But once you add a little Nutella to the situation… that’s a different story! Such is the case with this latest recipe I’m sharing here: A Pumpkin Nutella Swirl Tart. Oh ya, now we’re talkin’.
