Cherry cheesecake with a cruncy graham cracker crust and a streusel topping, just what you love.

Cherry Cheesecake Bars

I don’t know why it is but when ever I think of Valentine’s Day desserts, I always think of cherries.  To me cherries just means Valentine’s Day.  Do you think it has something to do with President’s Day so close and the story of George Washington chopping down a cherry tree? I know that the […]

Red Velvet Cake Balls

When I think of Valentine’s day treats, I think of chocolate or red velvet. What’s better for celebrating Valentine’s day with your loved one than a delicious treat to share. And of course chocolate, cause I mean, its chocolate – and red velvet is nice and red and Valentine like, right? These red velvet cake […]

Peanut Butter “Cheese” Ball

Today is national peanut butter day. So I’m going to be sharing an amazing peanut butter “cheese” ball recipe with you. Its cream cheese base, so it is real cheese, but its not your typical cheese ball, obviously, since its sweet instead of savory. Its creamy, peanut buttery and covered in chocolate chips and peanut […]

Cream Cheese Frosting

As a food blogger I have to make holiday recipes a little earlier than you might so that I can get them ready for you, so that you can make them in time for the holiday. Right now I’m getting ready for Valentine’s day even though its a month away. I’m working on a few […]

Cream Cheese Strawberry Danish

So seriously one of the best things about being a food blogger, is experimenting with new recipes and foods.  Especially treats, hmmm….. yeah, especially treats. Oh yeah, and eating the food too.  These cream cheese strawberry danishes were an experiment because I had the ingredients on hand (yesterday I picked up the sweetest strawberries from […]

Zebra Caramel Popcorn

If you haven’t learned already, one of my favorite snacks is caramel popcorn. This zebra caramel corn is a little bit sweeter than what you might get from the store (especially cause its drizzled in chocolate!) because it has sweetened condensed milk in the caramel, but its baked up in the oven to give it that […]

Chocolate Chip Cookies with Sea Salt

So pretty much everything is better with sea salt on top right? Well, at least these chocolate chip cookies are. I mean, this is pretty much identical to my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe, the only difference is the addition of sea salt. But these chocolate chip cookies with sea salt are seriously so good, […]

Breakfast Pear Cake

I was provided with vegetables and produce from Melissa’s Produce but all opinions are my own. This mini breakfast pear cake with mandarin cream is perfect for breakfast, brunch, and even dessert.  Sometimes you just want a little treat and instead of baking a whole cake why not bake a mini cake.  That’s what I […]

Swirled Fudge

This swirled fudge is inspired by a candy bar I used to get on my study abroad. It was made by Milka and it is called “Happy Cow” or Kuhflecken (cow spots) and is a milk chocolate candy bar with white chocolate spots throughout. I just love the milk chocolate and white chocolate combo and […]

Cherry Chocolate Almond Cookies

I have several joys in my life; one of them is spending time with my family and another one is sharing recipes with you on LMLD.  It is a delight when the two of them come together and that is what happened with the creation of Cherry Chocolate Almond Cookies. A few weeks ago I […]
