Eggnog Dip

Since I’ve discovered these amazing eggs, I’ve started imagining all the great eggnog recipes I could make, recipes that will remind me of the eggnog of my childhood.

24 Zucchini Recipes

I missed Zucchini Day. It just passed me right by. Several of my friends have asked me for more zucchini recipes. So, here I am. I’ve put together an amazing collection of recipes that will be perfect for using your bounteous harvest.

Independence Day Treats

I love a good holiday. I love the comradery, the break from the daily grind, and most of all, the food. Oh, the food! Holiday food is the best, isn’t it?

White Chocolate Cookies

Do you ever wonder what white chocolate is? All I know is I like it. White chocolate is yummy. The puppy and I agree on this point.

Chocolate Mint Cookie Bars

I decided to throw together some last minute cookie bars, and I seriously considered a repeat of the Coconut Chocolate Chip Bars. But my chocolate cravings got the best of me, and with the presence of cocoa powder, mint chocolate chips, AND mint patties in my pantry, the decision became a verrry easy one. A little too easy, maybe.

Blackberry Cobbler

You should know that it doesn’t bother me ONE BIT to have cobbler instead of cake. In fact, I bought the biggest Costco-sized box of blackberries I could find, and made this cobbler twice. Once for me, and once for Carla.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake

The Lizard finally settled on Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake for his birthday, which is just fine with me. My family’s love of chocolate and peanut butter is practically legend. As if chocolate peanut butter cake and peanut butter frosting weren’t enough, I covered the top with chocolate ganache and threw some chopped peanut butter cups on top.

Almond Buttermilk Cake

The book says it’s called a visiting cake because you can see your neighbors coming up the road, and throw this cake together before they get to the front door. It’s just about right, too. This thing was easy like Sunday morning.

Graham Cracker Chocolate Chip Cookies

Not long ago, I pinned these gooey S’mores Cookies, and I just could’t stop thinking about them. I wanted to create my own version, one without marshmallows. Not that I have anything against marshmallows. I just wanted to keep it simple, like a plain old chocolate chip cookie with a little graham cracker surprise.

Lemon Ricotta Cookies

You’d think having a cookie blog would be enough, right? I bake cookies, desserts, and snacks every week. The kids eat them like they’re going out of style. And still the doctor says things like, “No restrictions on his diet, let him eat whatever he wants.” I hope what he wants is Lemon Ricotta Cookies. Because that’s what I have.

Brown Sugar Cake with Salted Caramel Dip

When I informed Robb of an upcoming dinner get-together, and asked what I should make for dessert, cake and dip was his idea. Changing the chocolate dip to caramel dip was his idea, too. Changing the white cake to brown sugar cake was my idea, though. I’m taking full credit.

Monster Cookies

My latest new Food Blogger Problem involves my children, and their propensity to volunteer me to make cookies for all their parties and activities. This time, the offspring gave me notice, multiple reminders, and even recipe suggestions.

Grasshopper Cookies

I mean, it’s soft, it’s minty, it’s got chopped chocolate mint cookies in it, the entire batch disappeared in less than 24 hours… it’s basically the same old wonderful, delicious story.

Key Lime Fruit Dip

I know I should feel flattered when my family says, “Wow, this is good!” with surprise in their voices, after trying my latest dessert/snack concoction. But I don’t. I feel kind of offended that they would be surprised.

Coconut Lime Poke Cake

Then I remembered the time I made Coconut Lime Sugar Cookies and decided I needed that flavor combination in my life again. So it really could not be a lime poke cake. It HAD to be a Coconut Lime Poke Cake. It was the only choice.
