Banana Bundt Cake with Toffee Sauce

I’m not kidding when I said I’m going to put this recipe on the blog but boy, did it take a long time for me to do it! This cake was a hit in my family that I made it twice in a month.  I do love it as well, I thought the cake was […]

Hamburger-Vegetable Soup with Tortellini

Today is a second day of snow day so there’s no school for my son and myself.  Yesterday I did housework that included laundry, vacuuming, mopping, and dusting!  It’s very rare that I got to do dusting when I do my weekly cleaning–ooppsss–as that chore is very tedious and I do not like it at […]

Peanut Butter-Brownie Cheesecake

Since we had the no-bake cheesecake, my family wanted me to make another one right away.  When it’s that good, there’s no stopping the craving! This one is obviously a baked cheesecake, which I haven’t made for a long time I didn’t think I would be successful.  I managed to bake it just right with […]

No-Bake Strawberry Cheesecake

My apology for being absent for a long time.  I think I mentioned it on my last post that I’m taking more responsibility at work now that my priorities at home has also changed.  I also don’t feel like making desserts or sweet treats for a while so this break is much needed. My son […]

Sticky Toffee Pudding Tart

Happy New Year!!  I don’t think that I would make it to the new year with a new post but here I am, making an effort to sit down and write the recipe to share 😀 This dessert was actually made last year but I made the toffee sauce twice within two weeks time because […]

Easy Fruit Cake

When I wrote my last post it was in 2016 😛  I know I’ve been absent from the blog for many weeks.  I usually am pretty good of closing the year with a Christmas post, but this year my end of year break was marked by my mom’s illness that necessitated an ER visit, my […]

Orange-Cranberry-Nut Fruit Cake

Are you all ready for Christmas?  I am!  We always have a mellow Christmas celebration and my husband and I always emphasize the importance of the birth of Jesus instead of having lots of gifts under the tree.  It helps with all the craziness that’s going on around the season.  It really doesn’t matter if […]

Gingerbread Cinnamon Buns

Another day of staying at home because of snow day.  It snowed late morning yesterday and even though there was not much accumulation, the snow has turned into a thin coat of ice this morning.  The school was canceled which meant I didn’t have to go to work either.  Honestly I didn’t feel like going […]

Pumpkin Walnut Cake

I made this cake when I had a break, that is over Thanksgiving break 🙂  I know I’m way behind posting related recipe according to the season; but I’ve given up trying to follow the trend because it’s just not enough time in my life to do that anymore. I thought this cake is delicious […]

Peanut Butter Cup Bars

Our family will never say no to chocolate and peanut butter and I think that’s a good enough reason to make these bars.  They are fairly easy to make and taste very similar to Reese’s peanut butter cups.  I think this is an obligatory item to make for gift giving to those who have the […]

Whole Wheat Apple Cake

A whole wheat apple cake that’s moist and choke-full of apples.  I love making easy cake like this because it’s flavorful and light enough for after weekdays after dinner desserts.  We eat it for breakfast, of course, because the recipe said that it was for that time of day 🙂 Any apples will do for […]

Sweet Potato Pie

Happy Thanksgiving!!! This is a post that may be a bit late, you know, to bake a pie on the day of, but it may be a recipe to try on the next Thanksgiving day.  I don’t normally make pumpkin pie myself; I find it a bit bland and not substantial.  But this year I […]

Mini Chocolate-Cinnamon Rolls

I’m so excited with a week break I have from work.  Yes, it is a Thanksgiving break for me and what do I have in mind?  My plan is to bake and cook!  I’m trying to squeeze in as many baking activities in a week, plus some cooking for Thanksgiving day for my family. So […]

S’Mores Cupcakes

To break the monotonous bread posts, I thought I would share a cupcake recipe.  This was the cupcakes that I made for my son’s birthday last month.  I had to return the book to the library before I had a chance to write down the recipe hence the gap of almost a month.  So here […]

Oatmeal-Cranberry Cookies

Oh my, November is here already.  The fall color is spectacular here and the weather is actually pretty nice up until a few days ago.  I think it is time to crave for comfort foods again.  I’ve been doing some cooking with my Instant Pot and the dishes I made were stew and casserole.  My […]
