So I Made My Own Wedding Cake

Did you know?  I just got married.  That handsome fellow I told you about?  Mister Texas? Rust?  Yeah…I married him a few days ago, in the hotel where we met.  It was a perfect day, with close family and friends, great food, lots of smiles.  I count my blessings that I found him, and that […]

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 […]

Easy Oreo Bundt Cake with Chocolate Ganache

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 […]

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 […]

Gluten Free Tropical Blueberry Cake

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

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 […]

#CookUpCozy with a Chocolate Caramel Candy Cheesecake

Those are four words that are ridiculous, no matter how you combine them. Chocolate?  Good. Chocolate Cheesecake?  Better. Chocolate Candy Cheesecake? Yum. Chocolate caramel Candy Cheesecake?  Seriously now.  You must stop. Since beginning my blog almost six years ago, I have created hundreds of recipes.  Many of them I am really, really proud of – […]

Red Velvet Mug Cake

I bet you couldn’t guess it’s February, could you? I mean, look around the internet.  Can you blink without seeing a new Red Velvet concoction?  I know I can’t.  And, just like that new Miley song on the radio that you hate at first, the more you hear it, the more it grows on you, […]
