Mixed Berry Sweet Rolls #KickOffToSummerWeek2014 #GourmetGarden

Cinnamon Rolls are one of my favorite breakfast options. But another favorite is raspberry sweet rolls. Somehow I’ve gone all the years of my life and have never made my own raspberry sweet rolls though. And I guess technically I still haven’t, because for these sweet rolls I used a bag of frozen mixed berries instead […]

Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

I absolutely adore my cookies for two recipes, but there are a couple cookie recipes that I have a small batch recipe for but don’t have a full batch recipe for. And sometimes you do need a full batch of cookies. Especially these double chocolate chip cookies. Luckily last night when I made these we […]


White Chocolate Chip Biscoff Blondies on Somewhat Simple

Okay you guys, I seriously think I was one of the last people on the planet to jump on the Biscoff Spread bandwagon. I of course had eaten my share of Biscoff Cookies on our cross country flights to visit Nate’s family in Virginia. But while we were visiting my family this last Christmas my […]

Eggless Cookie Dough for Two

One of the things I have missed eating since becoming pregnant is cookie dough. I mean, who doesn’t love licking the bowl clean after making a batch of cookies, or eating a small grabful along the way. But also I’ve missed licking out my bowls of cake batter, and brownie batter. Finally, with a little […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bundt Cake

I always have to try to one up an amazing chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting that my husband made for my birthday a couple of years ago. It was one of the best cakes I’ve ever had in my life. This year for Nate’s birthday I sent him a few cake ideas I had […]

Monster Cookies for Two

What is a monster cookie, you might ask? A monster cookie is typically a peanut butter oatmeal cookie with chocolate chips and m&ms. You can also throw in some extra ingredients too – nuts, raisins, whatever you have around the house really. I didn’t have m&ms when I made these so I decided to toss […]

Triple Berry Lemon Bundt Cake

Craig is our Costco shopper now days.  He started doing almost all the shopping about 15 months ago while I cared for my mom and the responsibility has stuck.  It is pretty easy for him because he passes about 4 Costcos on his drive home from work.  Did I tell you he drives 180 miles […]
