Strawberry Chess Squares

Tuesday, February 7th, 2012

Let me just go ahead and get this out there – I’m a huge chess square fan. I’ve never met a dessert with the word “chess” in it that I don’t like. Chess is code word for “awesome stuff”, if you ask me. I have had this recipe idea in my head for a long [...]

Peanut Butter Fudge Cake

Tuesday, January 24th, 2012

I read online somewhere today that it’s National Peanut Butter Day? Peanut Butter is reason enough for me to celebrate, how about you? Peanut butter is one of those things that I couldn’t live without if I tried. It’s so creamy (or crunchy), sweet, nutty, delicious. I just can’t get enough of it, especially when [...]

Gingerbread Apple Streusel Coffee Cake

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

I am a little embarrassed to admit it, but last year during the Christmas season I went a little nuts. I bought six packages of gingerbread cookie mix because they only sell them during Christmas season, and well…what if I get the hankering for a gingerbread cookie in July? I personally have never made gingerbread cookies [...]

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bars

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

I had hopes of making a pumpkin roll sometime during the Thanksgiving holidays, but time just got away from me. November was such a crazy busy month that I never got a chance to make it and I was so disappointed! I know it’s almost December and it’s time for Christmas goodies and all kinds [...]

Sweet Potato Snack Cake

Monday, November 7th, 2011

I’ll be honest with you, I’ve never really been much on sweet potatoes. I think it all comes from a yucky, stringy baked sweet potato I had about 18 years or so ago. I haven’t been able to get it out of my head since, thereby avoiding sweet potatoes since that very day. That is…until [...]

Toffee Apple Blondies with Brown Sugar Frosting

Wednesday, October 26th, 2011

Just reading the title of this recipe makes my mouth water. Toffee? Apples? Blondies? Oh Em Gee are these ever so delicious! When I first saw this recipe it was one of those that I knew I just had to make soon, and I did…about 5 minutes later. It was a Sunday afternoon, and a [...]

Strawberries & Cream Upside-Down Cake

Monday, June 20th, 2011

The first time I tasted this recipe I was at a meeting and as soon as it touched my mouth I immediately thought of my hubby. He loves strawberries and would rather have a simple dessert like this rather than a fancy layered cake with lots of decorator frosting any day. So I decided that [...]

New York Cheesecake

Thursday, June 9th, 2011

Before you all think I’ve gone nuts posting such a long recipe, hear me out. I know that this recipe looks very intricate, but I promise you that it’s not. Honestly, most of the steps involve nothing more than moving the cooked cheesecake from place to place to ensure that it cools down at the [...]

Cake Batter Ice Cream

Thursday, June 2nd, 2011

We live in Mississippi and when I say it’s hot, it’s friggin’ HOT! We completely skipped past Spring altogether. It’s supposed to hit 100 degrees today, and I would not be one bit surprised if it just bypassed 100 and hit 105! I love living in the South just as much as any good Southern [...]

Cinnamon Sugar “Danish”

Thursday, May 19th, 2011

Variations of this recipe are all over the place, mostly in old cookbooks that I got from my grandmother when she moved. I went to visit her one day and she had a box full of cookbooks sitting in her garage and said she was fixing to take them to give away. My goodness, my [...]
