Brown Sugar Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies were inspired by one gorgeous bag of dark brown sugar. They are soft, chewy cookies with a rich molasses flavor. Match made in heaven, if you ask me.

Banana Pudding

The Fruitarian has been begging for another taste of this pudding. Of the hundreds of recipes on this humble blog, this pudding, and the parfait I made with it, are his most memorable.

5 Great Snack Products You Should Try

There are some really fantastic snack items out there, and I want to share with you a few of my all time favorite products. No strings attached, no payment given, just the honest truth about some snacks I actually use and love.

Peach Plum Crisp

And as long as I have the equivalent of two 5-gallon buckets full of fresh plums in my house, I suppose some plum desserts are in order. I adapted my favorite peach crisp recipe to incorporate the plums, and this delightful late summer dessert was born.

Dark Chocolate Coconut Cookies

I new the dark cocoa powder would be transforming itself into cookies. Chewy cookies. Heavenly chewy dark chocolate cookies with coconut. Just the thought of it brings a smile to the face.

No-Bake Lazy Squares

These no-bake chocolate squares are just the kind of non-baking that THIS baker can really get behind. With recipes this easy, I could bake (or not bake) all week long and still find new recipes to not bake with.

Grandma’s Chocolate Cake

The reason Robb loves this cake, beyond the fond childhood memories, is that it is not too rich. It actually has quite a mild chocolate flavor, and a perfectly amazing dense and moist texture.

Oatmeal Cream Pies

Today, I wanted to re-blog a recipe I reviewed way back when. I think September just feels right for these cookies. Maybe it’s that back-to-school season that has me ready.

August 2014 Wrap-Up

This being the last school year for my oldest son has me feeling a little melancholy, and the unseasonal grey and rainy weather hasn’t helped my mood at all. It’s fortunate I have baking to bring me out of my funk.

Spiced Zucchini Crumb Muffins

As much as I wanted to make a chocolate zucchini bread or muffin, I’ve been trying to push myself into other flavors. It turns out, a spiced zucchini muffin with walnut crumb topping was exactly perfect for today.

Peach Cobbler for One

I don’t want The Lizard eating candy bars for dessert after he leaves home. Not when this crispy peach cobbler is so easy to make, so warm, comforting, and delicious.

Sparkling Peach Limeade

When I have peaches, I have an overwhelming urge to do something with them, besides eat them plain. I want to make all my foods peach-flavored. Fresh peaches for the win!

Peanut Butter Crispy Marshmallow Brownies

When I mentioned to Carla that I needed a killer brownie recipe for the upcoming family reunion brownie bake-off for eternal fame and glory, she suggested I try her Peanut Butter Crispy Marshmallow Brownies.

No-Bake Desserts

This is what made me decide to bring you a bunch of quick and easy desserts that require no baking whatsoever. More than 50 of them, in fact. Just feast your eyes on this collection, and you’ll be no-baking your little heart out!

Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich Cookies

Is it just me or does anyone else think that peanut butter and jelly sandwiches could end wars? It’s like an acceptable way to eat dessert for lunch.
