Chocolate Cupcakes

We’ve shared a recipe for simple yellow cupcakes, so of course at some point we would need a recipe for chocolate cupcakes too, right? This recipe makes the perfect chocolate cupcakes. They’re moist and rich and chocolatey. What more could you want in a cupcake, right? Well with just a few simple ingredients that you probably […]

Strawberry Icebox Cake

This strawberry icebox cake isn’t a cake in the traditional sense of the word cake.  You don’t use flour, you are not baking it, but it is a sweet layered dessert.  My lovely Stephanie brought a strawberry icebox cake to a potluck pool party and it was excellent.  I had no idea what it was […]

White Chocolate Chip Biscoff Blondies

I think I was probably one of the last people to jump on the Biscoff spread bandwagon. I had of course tried Biscoff cookies on our flights across the country to visit family, but not until this last Christmas did I try Biscoff spread. I was immediately sold on it. I mostly like just eating […]

Candy Bar Surprise Cookies

My sister in law has made these candy bar surprise cookies for us a couple times and they’ve always been so good. The vanilla cake mix in the dough gives the cookie a delicious, cake mix flavor (but it doesn’t have a cakey texture) plus it makes the dough super easy to make with just […]

Fluffernutter S’mores

Fluffernutter is the combination of peanut butter and marshmallow. It started out as a sandwich, but lots of people have adapted it to make tons of delicious recipes. And when I was thinking of what varieties of s’mores I could make, well of course a s’more has to have the marshmallow, but what about adding […]

Lemon Zucchini Bread

A little sweet bread with a twist… lemon zucchini bread. How is your garden growing?  My garden is doing alright, I have tomatoes, herbs, peppers, cucumbers, eggplant (first time-I love the little purple flower), and zucchini. I always plant zucchini, then I feel like my garden is a success because zucchini always grows well, really, […]

Better than Anything Brownies

I’m sure you’ve all heard of the popular “better than anything cake”. If you haven’t, its a chocolate poke cake, drizzled with a mixture of sweetened condensed milk and caramel, that soaks into the cake to make it extra moist and delicious, then its topped with cool whip and toffee bits. That does sound heavenly, […]

Summer Strawberry Crumb

A little rhubarb and a lot of strawberries together topped with oatmeal makes a pretty fantastic summer crumb. My mother had the most amazing rhubarb plant growing in our family garden.  It seemed it would take over the whole garden bed if allowed. My mom loved rhubarb, I believe it is an acquired taste being […]

Snickerdoodle Ice Cream Sandwiches

Last week I made a fresh batch of snickerdoodle cookies, although I would’ve been perfectly happy eating all the delicious cookies as is. I also had some extra vanilla ice cream in the freezer and I decided, how good would some snickerdoodle ice cream sandwiches be? You can use whatever flavor of ice cream you […]

Chocolate Mint Brownies

This is another wonderful way to jazz up boxed brownies – make chocolate mint brownies.  Now I know you think I am talking about adding mint flavoring to the box brownies mix but I am really talking about adding the real deal.  I have an herb growing in my backyard and it is a chocolate […]

Chocolate Crepes with Orange-Lemon Curd

Crepes are so easy to make, I forget how easy they are to make.  This orange-lemon curd is quite easy also because you use the microwave.  So with all that ease don’t hesitate to whip together these chocolate crepes with orange-lemon curd tonight for dinner. Tuesday night, I came home uninspired and with no desire […]

Peach Cobbler Bars

Cobbler is another dessert that reminds of summertime and camping. I love cooking up some peach cobbler in our dutch oven when we go camping and I love how simple it is to make too (with only 3 ingredients in my dutch oven version). But when I’m home I want the delicious taste of peach […]

S’mores Brownies

I love summer for a lot of reasons. But one thing I have really grown to love since marrying my husband is the outdoors. And of course with that we love hiking, fishing and camping. With a newborn it will be a little harder for us to go camping this summer. But that doesn’t mean […]
