Velvet Cake

Velvet Cake

  I really like keeping promises that I make, and I made a promise a couple days ago that I would share this cake recipe soon, so here I am, keeping my promise. I’m pretty nice like that. Most days. Let’s have a chat about […]

From-Scratch Banana Cream Pie

From-Scratch Banana Cream Pie

  Well, the Superbowl was a little disappointing this year to say the least. I feel pretty terrible for Peyton Manning. Poor guy. But the Seahawks dominated, so congratulations to them. Superbowl aside, things have been pretty crazy around here with really sick kids and […]

Gooey S’mores Bars

Gooey S’mores Bars

Recipe lightly adapted from here   When I first saw this recipe on Pinterest, I got excited. I know recipes can be hit or miss, so I started with very low expectations. I modified things a little to suit my liking, and the result was […]

Apple Crisp

Apple Crisp

  I love apples and I love a good apple crisp. By good apple crisp I mean more crisp than apples. In fact, really just a couple apples with a whole lot of topping. That defines good apple crisp for me. This apple crisp meets […]

Texas Fudge Cake

  Ready for some seriously delicious chocolate cake? While some might think it’s just another sheet cake, my family and I submit that it is not! Thus, we lovingly call it Texas FUDGE Cake. In case you can’t tell from the pictures, the frosting is […]

**Originally posted on November 17, 2013**   This is a cake I cannot take any credit for. Everyone, meet my Grandma Christensen. Otherwise known as Zoe (rhymes with boy, not zoh-ee), otherwise nicknamed Zeke and Zed with Grandpa (I’m still not sure which is which…). […]

Peanut Butter Bars

Peanut Butter Bars

I have heard so much about the peanut butter bars that the lunch ladies at elementary school used to make. But, since I was homeschooled, I’ve never tried them. Not to completely stray away from their roots, one of my English teachers in College brought […]
