Oreo Pudding Cookies

To be quite honest, I had no idea what these even were but per baby brother and his friends requests, I tested these in my kitchen, having a good ole’ time ripping open nostalgic pudding packs, that unmistakable smell taking me back to middle school again.  I produced this recipe by scaling back both the..read more

Peppermint Brownies

peppermint-brownies-1-300x169

These are a triple threat with a bottom layer of deep, dark chocolate fudgy brownies, a middle pink layer of creamy peppermint, and a top glaze of glossy chocolate sauce.  When devoured at room temperature, the entire bite melts in your mouth but it’s also good to know that these keep their shape with each..read more

Candy Cane Sugar Cookies

candy-cane-cookies

This is my favorite, go-to sugar cookie recipe because it bakes up light, buttery cookies that are lightly almond scented and hold their shape when they bake.  Now, you could use this dough, un-tinted for decorating purposes but I thought it’d be fun to twist them into candy canes. httpv://youtu.be/fzV3iHlOg9s 5.0 from 1 reviews Candy..read more

Stuffed Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies

stuffed-salted-caramel

Sure it’s a mouthful to say but it’s also a mouthful of utter deliciousness. This cookie experience should be deemed illegal. You can’t help but feel naughty when you have melting chocolate smudged all over your fingers, gooey caramel dripping everywhere and cookie crumbs that won’t be brushed off absentmindedly this time. Nope. You’ll be..read more

Peach Upside Down Cake

Before I saw these ripe blushing babies, I could smell them.  I bet the world could be a nicer place if it was scented with the perfume of fresh and sweet peaches.  Unless you’re a peach-hater, is there anything like biting into the soft flesh of a fat peach, so juicy that it dribbles down..read more

This year, our garden is providing us with an abundance of zucchini and summer squash and grilling them alongside our meat is an easy go-to option nearly every weekend, but when I’m craving an altogether different way to enjoy them, I like to whip them up into something sweet, like this zucchini bread.  Softly spiced,..read more

With Summer rapidly approaching (June 21st), you can’t help but envision BBQ’s and alfresco dining with a generous portion of grilled meat. Along side the conventional dogs and patties, I also enjoy including some chicken, especially this yogurt spiced chicken. The yogurt gets penetrated really well with the spices and makes for an incredibly juicy..read more
