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.

Scotcheroos

Can I just describe to you why this is arguably the best krispie treat ever? The biggest reason, besides the obvious heavenly peanut butter and chocolate combination, is corn syrup.

Peanut Butter Stuffed Chocolate Cookies

I was only too happy to give Tank the flavor combination he asked for. And, truth be told, I was kind of excited to sample one myself! Because chocolate and peanut butter are amazing.

Mint Cake

When the Hippie Chick asked for vanilla cake for her birthday (again!), I totally talked her out of it. After some back and forth, we finally agreed on this Mint Cake. Mission accomplished.

July 2014 Wrap-Up

I’m not going to lie… I love July. Especially this July!

Blackberry Cheesecake Brownies

Today is National Cheesecake Day! Woot! Woot! Let’s hear it for cheesecake!

Macadamia Crusted Chocolate Cookies

I asked Blue Skies what her favorite flavors are, and she told me she doesn’t like nuts, except macadamia nuts. If you were going to pick one nut to love, doesn’t it make sense to choose one that is as fantastic as macadamias?

Cilantro Lime Jalapeno Lemonade

Jen gave me lemons (and rules) so I’m making cilantro lime jalapeno lemonade.
