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 out of this world! It literally was a party in my mouth. I sent the leftovers with my husband to school and everyone raved about these bars. Several people told him they were the best dessert they'd ever tried and a couple people bugged him for the next few Read more [...]
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 […]

Pumpkin Cheesecake Dip

Pumpkin Cheesecake Dip

I love cheesecake. I love pumpkin. I love candied pecans. Why not put them all together in this Pumpkin Cheesecake Dip with Candied Pecans?   Leia and I had a blast creating this dip. We started off by making a delicious batch of her Soft […]

Soft & Gooey Chocolate Chip Cookies

Soft & Gooey Chocolate Chip Cookies

  These are seriously everything you could want in a cookie: melty chocolate, gooey center, crisp edges, and they stay soft and delicious even if you leave them uncovered on the counter overnight! ...not that I have ample experience doing that...   When beating the butter and sugar together, it should look light and fluffy, like the first picture below.  Add the eggs, one at a time, and gently mix until each egg is incorporated into the dough before adding the next. I keep my stand mixer Read more [...]
Texas Fudge Cake

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 […]

Lemon Pudding Poke Cake & a Tribute to Grandma

Lemon Pudding Poke Cake & a Tribute to Grandma

**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 these to class one day. It was seriously the best day ever. Not only did she bring delicious cookies, she provided us all with copies of the recipe!   I tweaked a couple things to make it more my style and taste, but the bones are the same. Read more [...]
Buttermilk Pie

Buttermilk Pie

Buttermilk Pie. Ah, a Southern treat. This pie comes from my Dad’s side of the family. He grew up in Oklahoma and still has roots there. Most Thanksgivings that I remember include this amazing pie. It’s rich, creamy, custardy, and sweet. I was a little […]
