I’ll be honest with you, I’m just not a huge fan of raisins. I’m a giant fan of oatmeal, but I barely tolerate the little dried fruits that usually adorn oatmeal cookies. What does a girl do when this is the case? Add chocolate of course. I love anything that is sweet and salty, and […]
Sometimes we need a good, basic recipe to keep in our repertoire, and this pound cake happens to be one of them. Classic butter pound cake is incredibly versatile as it is able to be used in many applications from trifles, strawberry short cakes, to Boston cream pie loaf, and the most delicious toast you […]
I feel like today is a good day for muffins, raspberry muffins to be exact. This recipe lends itself to a very tender and moist crumb, they’re tasty warm or the next morning with a cup of coffee with a touch of butter (or cream cheese if you’re feeling wild).

There is a severe lack of acidity and “pop” in canned cherry fillings. If you have the time, this filling blows the […]
It had been years since I had coconut macaroons, mostly because my husband isn’t a huge fan of coconut in general (yes, I know. No, I haven’t divorced him yet). So of course I totally ignored his request for chocolate chip cookies and made these delicious little coconut-y clouds of heaven, and you know what? […]
Fruit Pizzas are really a personal thing when it comes down to it since there are so many different ways to make one. Some people like to use actual pizza dough, others will use a sugar cookie base. I enjoy using a puff pastry base and a fruit curd as the sauce. This isn’t so […]
Looking for something with oats? Perhaps something with blueberries? How about, gasp, something with both oats and blueberries? You’ve come to the right place, my friend.
I may as well just call this recipe Lemon Crack Bars, because that’s essentially what they are. You’ll be snuggled up in bed, eye lids getting droopy, almost on your way to dreamland and BAM. Lemon Crack Bars will fill your head with alluring calls to come rescue them from the fridge and rehome them […]
