As you may know, if you’ve ever been here before, I live in a small town. Nobody knows me, really – thank goodness – as I am a hermit.  Hello?  I work on the internet. I do this for a reason.  You all don’t care if I brush my hair before I tweet…you see the […]

Candy and Caramel Apple Pie

Caramel Candy Apple Pie

A few years ago, when I was a brand new food blogger, I was a member of Tuesdays With Dorie.  That was a group of bloggers that bonded every week over Dorie Greenspan’s Cookbook – Baking:From My Home to Yours.  We would all tackle the exact same recipe each week, and then on Tuesday, unveil […]

Cool Recipes for Summer

3-berry-yogurt-pops

Summer. Is. Here. It’s about to get sooo hot here in Virginia.  The humidity y’all.  it was 77 today, and I could barely breathe.  Seriously.  The temps aren’t even up there yet – not in the 90s.  Yet, it’s coming. It’s COMING. Soon, the kids will be out of school, and I will be working […]

I know I am a professional food blogger now.  I know it every day, when I get up in the morning, faced with 14 invoices, contracts, eleventy-two things to bake (and not eat!), and posts to write, whether I want to or not. But it still kind of blows my mind when I get recipe […]

Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake

Some things are just too good not to share. Like cheesecake.  And chocolate. I used to be frightened of cheesecake, believe it or not. A neighbor made me one before I ever started this food blogging adventure, back when I couldn’t boil water, and I looked at that thing like it was from outer space.  […]

Strawberry Limeade Cupcakes. Let that sink in for a minute. Sounds like spring and summer, all wrapped up in a nice little bow, doesn’t it?  Yeah, it kinda does.  Flavors like citrus and berries just shout warm weather, and these tasty cupcakes do not disappoint. I was challenged by Pillsbury to take a couple of […]

Espresso Chocolate and Almond Cake

This Espresso Chocolate and Almond Cake looks fancy, doesn’t it?  Looks like it took a long time, lots of bowls, lots of effort. Wrong. There are a lot of folks in the blogging world that shun the box mix, but kids…I am not one of them.  Yes, I do know how to make a cake […]

I’ve found it, kiddos…the perfect flavor to kick off SPRING.  I don’t know about you, but I am about sick to death of winter.  I have had the fortune of being in Florida, Las Vegas, and Houston the past couple of weeks, and got a taste of summer.  Pools and glorious sunshine?  Yes, please.  Then […]

Dark Chocolate Espresso Brownies

coffee-brownies

Did you know that coffee really brings out the flavor of chocolate? It does. The first time I really had the two together was in 1999, when I booked my first trip as a grown up (yes, really) to Hawaii.  We went on a dinner cruise, and at the end, we were gifted with a […]
