Thanksgiving Desserts


I’m freakishly busy. So busy, in fact, I can’t even make you a dessert. But…worry not, I’ve made LOTS of desserts, and therefore I have LOTS of desserts that will make your Thanksgiving dinner delicious. Truth. Let’s start with this Candy Apple Pie. I’ve shared it here several times, and with good reason…it’s incredible.  A […]

Low Carb Chocolate Chip Cookies


Low Carb Chocolate Chip Cookies?  Diet food, on Doughmesstic, ahhhgain? Yep.  But let me tell you why. A couple of weeks ago, I was a cookie eating monster. True story. I was on board the Caribbean Princess, sailing from Florida to Grand Cayman and Cozumel.  I ate, and I ate good.  My diet?  What diet?  […]

Cream Cheese Brownie Buttercream


No joke. Cream Cheese Brownie Buttercream. To me, one of the very best brownies is a cream cheese brownie.  Fudgy and tangy and sweet and…not on my diet but, well, maybe it’s on yours.  I also love my version of homemade buttercream, which is made mostly of butter, and umm, cream.  Sugar, butter, cream. So…I […]

S’mores Brownies…and a Giveaway

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…it’s football season.  That means tailgating. Now, I don’t know about you, but I swear, if you leave a tailgate menu up to a group of men, you’ll have 47 pounds of meat, and it if you’re lucky? Chips. Maybe.  No fruit, no pasta salad, no mac […]

Sugar Free Low Carb and Yet Really Good Cream Cheese Brownies

I, along with about 15 other bloggers will participate – and the winner will receive a 3-day workshop of our choice […]

Coconut Key Lime Pies…and a Trip to The Keys


If you follow me on Twitter, you know I spent a week last month tooling around the Florida Keys.  Poor ME.  Woe is ME.  Forced to travel to some amazing hotels, incredible restaurants, and eat 9 different Key Lime Pies. Yes, I did.  I tasted NINE different Key Lime Pies. Before the trip, I had […]

Strawberry Peach Gelato

  For the past few years, I’ve been making pink foods along with KitchenAid, in an effort to increase breast cancer awareness and the Susan G. Komen Foundation.  KitchenAid is a huge supporter of the foundation, and it’s something that touches so many of us. So of course, when the note came in again this […]

Melting Chocolate Cakes


I’m not kidding you, kids…since starting this diet/exercise thing I’ve put myself on, desserts have been few and far between.  Sure, as part of my job, I am REQUIRED to make them, but sadly, I have to just sneak a little taste, versus consuming each and every morsel, just to make sure they are perfect […]
