Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Pie

This Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Pie is my favorite ice cream pie, hands down.  The ingredients that set it apart from your basic ice cream pie is the Oreo cookie crust with caramel and chocolate syrup drizzled over the top of the pie.   Now you could use a premade cookie crust but because the […]

This lemon custard cake is almost like a light souffle. I don’t know if this is a true lemon souffle, I do know it is delicious, smooth, lemony, creamy, and drool worthy.  I am drooling over the thought of it right now.  If you love anything lemony, you will love this dessert.  If you are […]

Loaded Sugar Cookie Bars

Wow, “LOADED” is the optimal word here.  These loaded sugar cookies bars are just that, loaded with all the chips and nuts and sweets that you might imagine.  I loaded mine with chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, pistachio nuts, and cherry M&Ms.  A unique combination but truly a great combination together. The amazing thing is, I had […]

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 […]

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.
