Peanut Butter and Salted Caramel Brownies

Sometimes things go together that maybe you hadn’t thought of going together. Like that one couple you know, who are both wonderful and charming on their own, but you never really saw being a THING. Perhaps she was just a little too smart, or he just a little too handsome. But then they met. And […]

Raspberry Ice Cupcakes…and a KitchenAid Giveaway

Raspberry Ice Cupcakes.  Pink Cupcakes. Cupcakes for a Cure. Sure, you may think pink cupcakes in October may seem odd, considering everything else in your feed is pumpkin and pear, but pink is perfect for today, and for the rest of October.  Why? It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and I am helping KitchenAid raise money […]

Frozen Chocolate Coffee Mousse

Sometimes you just want to be a little fancy. I get that. I want to be fancy sometimes too. Instead of cupcakes, I’ll bake mini-cakes in fluted liners (still a cupcake, but so stylish); Instead of a big pie, I’ll make mini tarts and gussy them up. And instead of mousse in a bowl, I’ll […]

Coconut Lemon Dessert Waffles

I am pretty sure that waffles should be eaten for every meal, and not only every meal, but every section of a meal. Not just breakfast. Lunch, appetizers, main course, dessert.  Heck, sandwich course.  I love them, and they are SO adaptable.  You can make them sweet or savory, whatever you prefer. Embrace the waffle. […]

Pumpkin Pie Crème Brulee

Who here loves crème brulee?  Who here loves pumpkin pie? Who here has ever combined the two? Luckily, I am in the mood to share this creamy, full-of-great-flavor recipe with you, just in case you want to try it yourself.  As you may be aware, I have been working with Libby’s Pumpkin here recently, and […]

Blueberry Cheesecake Pastry Squares

Some recipes are just too easy. You may not know it yet, but you will.  And this recipe is one of them. Blueberry Cheesecake Pastry Squares. I adore cheesecake.  New York Style, tall as heaven, thick and creamy and tang tang tangy.  But that kind of cheesecake takes me over 6 hours to bake (my […]

Strawberry Rhubarb Citrus Trifles

Today, my friends, is National Strawberry Rhubarb Day. True story. Until I started blogging, I had never knowingly eaten rhubarb.  But then, one Tuesday, I was challenged with making a Cherry Rhubarb Buckle, and the love affair began. So crisp. So tart.  Plays so well with others. Yes, I adore rhubarb now.  The love affair […]

Toasted Coconut Sopapilla Cheesecake

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.  […]
