Rum Eggnog Cheesecake


More eggnog. More dessert. More rum. Welcome to the holidays. There are a lot of desserts that have already been eaten, and plenty of desserts yet to be consumed. This Rum Eggnog Cheesecake should be one of those things. Yes, you can make this in a standard springform pan, as the recipe is written, but […]

Captain Morgan’s Coquitos…Rum Eggnog


This post is rum and holiday overload.  That’s in part thanks to Captain Morgan, who sponsored this post as part of the Captain’s Table.  I’m enjoying being at THIS table, let me assure you. There are plenty of holiday parties to go around still, so load up on the rum and get to celebrating…I guarantee […]

12 Days of Doughmesstic Giveaways…and a Happy Birthday Wish!


Remember when I used to make cake?  Like, all the time? Yeah, me too. I kind of miss the days of all day baking, powdered sugar strewn about my kitchen, fondant in every color covering my counters, a sink full of dirty cake pans. Okay, not all of that is worth missing, but you get […]

12 Days of Giveaways…KitchenAid Waffle Baker

KitchenAid® Waffle Baker

Happy Sunday! Today I am thrilled to offer you one of my most favorite things…the KitchenAid Waffle Baker. Seriously – LOVE it. Waffles are a treat, in my opinion, reserved for breakfasts out or on fancy brunch buffets – not something you serve up at home on a regular basis.  Why?  Well, restaurants tend to […]

Holiday Pins!!


Pinterest. Pinterest. Pinterest is the devil. But it’s the devil we ALL LOVE.  It’s full of ideas we would never have on our own, parties we want to have ourselves, crafts we THINK we can do successfully. Yes, I love Pinterest. So much, in fact, that when SOLO asked be to be a featured “Pinner” […]

Gingerbread Cinnamon Roll Loaf


Well kids, here it is…we are right smack in the middle of December. Less than 2 weeks until Christmas, and Hanukkah has come and gone.  It’s full on Holiday Season – and I hope you are more ready than I am. That won’t take much. Luckily, it’s also officially gingerbread season. That, friends, I am […]

Crescent Change Up: Bacon & Onion Crescents


Remember last week when I told you Pillsbury asked me to make a recipe or two using their fabulous Crescent Rolls?  And I said to stay tuned, as I had more ideas?  Well…here is yet another. Bacon and Onion Crescent Rolls. So easy, and yet, so incredibly hard to put down.  They’d be great to […]

Almond and Coconut Mini Bundt Cakes


Okay.  Shoot me. I’ve used box mixes. There, I said it. But you see, sometimes, it’s just easier.  Quicker.  Ever-so-convenient.  While I personally am fortunate enough to have a job that allows me all day to bake cakes and pies and Danish from scratch, not everyone is so lucky.  And sometimes, those very people just […]

Roasted Pumpkin, Pear, and Arugula Puff Pastry Tarts

I am a huge fan of puff pastry.  It’s got so many things going for it…sweet or savory, breakfast or dinner, appetizer, dessert, or main dish.  Buttery and rich – there’s just nothing it can’t do.  So imagine my delight when the folks at Pepperidge Farm® asked me to create a recipe that would be […]
