Strawberry Cobbler

Friday, August 17th, 2012

I don’t know about where you are, but it’s pouring down rain here. Yucky, nasty, dreary day. Perfect day to stay inside and try out a bunch of new recipes! Not that I’ll have that luxury but a girl can dream, right? The other day I was at the store and they had strawberries on [...]

Caramel Apple Dip

Tuesday, April 24th, 2012

There are some people out there that always mention this blog and how much they use it every time they see me. A sweet friend of mine, Leslie, is one of those people. She always makes it a point to tell me how useful she finds the site and how many times she uses my [...]

Mae Mae’s Christmas Ambrosia

Wednesday, December 14th, 2011

This is another one of those recipes that floods me with memories of my sweet grandmother, Mae Mae. When thinking of Mae Mae and the many things she always made at Christmas time, you can’t leave this recipe out. I remember boxes of fruit being at her house, but I don’t remember where they came [...]

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 [...]

Pistachio & Cranberry White Chocolate Bark

Monday, December 5th, 2011

Can you say heaven on earth? Because that’s what these little bits are, little tiny pieces of heaven right here on earth! I actually made this recipe last week and the day after my mother-in-law came over to keep the kids for me while I went to run an errand. When I came back she [...]

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 Pie

Friday, November 18th, 2011

Bear with me on today’s post as I try to type with a pinky finger covered in layer after layer of gauze, then topped off with a finger sling (what do you call these things anyway?). Word to the wise, don’t get into a fight with your vaccum cleaner…it will win! Ugh, so now all [...]

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 [...]

While she’s away she’s asked me to guest post over on her blog, so please click over (www.myheartsdesireblog.com) and visit her to see the delicious recipe I’m sharing. And be sure to leave her some blog love while you’re there telling [...]

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 [...]
