1. Dark Chocolate Orange Slice & Bakes

Sally’s Baking Addiction got a facelift yesterday. A few changes to the overall look including easier navigation– especially for mobile– slightly darker colors (for easier reading!), fonts, new recipe format, and the sidebar. I’ll take a moment to fully explain all of the changes (and recap our NYC bakery tour!) later this week. Please let me know if you notice anything wonky. Site updates are never easy!

Chocolate and Orange is one of those crazy flavor combinations that you would never expect to pair well but somehow it’s AMAZING.  It’s like it was just meant to be. Kind of like those Chocolate Oranges we get in our stockings at Christmas!  The ones you smash and then eat…  I love those!

4. Orange Cream Pie

Oh, my PIE! I’m in orange cream pie heaven. This pie made me forget about chocolate pie. That’s a big accomplishment. The flavor is stunning, I mean, look at that fresh zest. The orange cream is light and very fresh and has the texture of a custard. So, not too airy like a mousse can be.

5. Orange Chicken Stir-Fry with Asparagus

I made the chicken/asparagus stir fry tonight. It was delicious. I used maple syrup instead of honey because I don’t care for the flavor of cooked honey. I also added some sesame oil. Great one pan meal.

7. Chocolate & Orange Twists

It’s been a while since Duncan’s buns (and other baked goods) made an appearance on the blog so I was very thrilled when he announced that he is willing to bake something again. He was like, ‘you know what I’m going to work on next? Chocolate and orange twists!’ As soon as I heard ‘chocolate and orange’ I tuned out.

12. Glazed Orange Bundt Cakes

Here’s the thing about this cake: the orange flavor totally shines. I feel like orange is underrated in the dessert world, so we’re letting it have its glory day. That’s why I didn’t really add any mix-ins, though a handful of chopped dark chocolate almost made its way in the bowl. Try that for me, will you sweet friends?

16. Chocolate Orange Chia Pudding

So for this one, it really is as easy as it looks. Combine the ingredients, whisk it until mixed, store in the fridge for a few hours for the seeds to activate and then voila! And if you’re really in a rush, you can put all the ingredients in a blender & whizz them until smooth. If you do it that way there’s no waiting around and you can dive straight in. I personally prefer the unblended version’s consistency but it’s a matter of preference more than anything.

Where do I start with these Crispy Honey Orange Glazed Salmon fillets? I think I just said it all!

Who would’ve thought salmon and honey with orange could go together so incredibly well?

Shout out to this orange cumin roast chicken which is perhaps one of the easiest chicken recipes that I have ever made. The cumin and red pepper flakes add tons of warmth. While the honey and orange add a sweet(ish) – sour(ish) quality that kicks up the flavor.

31. Orange Dream Bars

These bars are super simple to make and they’re so good. If you like lemon bars, you’re going to LOVE these. In fact, I used my lemon bar recipe, but I used orange juice instead! They’ve got a thick shortbread crust, which is super important for any citrus bar. I used fresh orange juice and zest in the filling. The filling is simple to make – you just whisk eggs and sugar and the orange juice and zest and pour it over a partially baked hot crust. Once the bars cook and cool the filling is like a nice thick orange curd. They taste like sunshine and the morning all in one, sun-bursting in your mouth!
