Peanut Butter Snickers Cookies

These cookies have made the rounds on food blogs already and for good reason. The combination of peanut butter and Snickers is surprisingly good. Maybe it’s the salty peanuts, but I thought they complimented each other really well. Another thing I like about this cookie recipe is the subtle peanut butter flavor. Instead of being []

Orange Chocolate Chunk Cake

I know it’s been a while since I posted a recipe, but this cake is the perfect thing to break my food blogging fast. I never thought I was a fan of chocolate and orange until I had one of those chocolate candies that’s actually shaped like an orange (you break it open and there’s []

Mini Cherry Cheese Danishes

One of my friends posted a picture of the cutest little cherry danishes on and I was determined to make some for myself. I have no idea if this is a similar recipe, but I couldn’t be happier with the results. The crescent rolls are the perfect base for the sweet cream cheese and []

Chocolate Sheet Cake

I’ve never had a Texas sheet cake, but I can’t imagine not being happy with this cake. The cake itself is light and fluffy with a delicateness from the buttermilk and the frosting is chocolatey and rich. Add the crunch of toasted walnuts and this sheet cake is a little slice of heaven. I practically []

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

I made these muffins on New Years Eve and all I can say is nom nom nom. I have a special love for pumpkin deserts and this is by far my new favorite pumpkin recipe (and I’m not even a fan of deserts with cream cheese). I like these muffins even more than pumpkin pie. []

Peanut Butter Bacon Cookies with Chocolate Chips

When I saw a recipe for Peanut Butter-Chocolate Chip-Bacon Cookies in my food magazine, I knew I had to give the somewhat strange combination a try. I’d been meaning to toss some bacon into my desserts, but I’d just never got around to it till last night. I ended up using a much more simple []

Churros with Cinnamon Sugar

For Cinco de Mayo we decided to have some friends over for a little get together. As usual I made too much food, but had lots of fun doing it. It was also our first real weekend after finals so margaritas and piƱa coladas were a must. I made Ricky Bayless’ Chipotle Meatballs, Mexican Chocolate []

Lemon-Blueberry Yogurt Loaf

I love lemons. I don’t why, but there is just something about lemon desserts that make my heart pitter-patter. This loaf is moist and delicious without being too sweet. Ryan gobbled this stuff up quicker than most things I cook, so I’d say it was a success. I found this recipe over at Smitten Kitchen []

Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars

I’m not too big of a peanut butter fan, but these Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars are by far the most requested treat I make. This recipe is from Ina Garten and like all of her deserts, this recipe is just amazing. These bars taste like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, but with some []

Apple Dumplings

You’ve probably seen this recipe all over the interwebs by now, but I thought I’d throw it out there as well. I first saw this recipe in a magazine and thought it looked interesting. I tore out the page and promptly forgot all about it. But then I saw the same recipe over at The []

Caramel Apple Cheesecake Pie

Well, I (obviously) haven’t been doing too good on the blogging regularly once again. Life has this pesky little habit of rearing it’s head up in my airspace and demanding my immediate attention. Plus, the holidays are always crazy on top of the crazy life regularly indulges in.Ok, I have no idea what I’m rambling []

Crispy Salted Oatmeal White Chocolate Cookies

I have a terrible secret to tell you, before I made this recipe I had never made an oatmeal cookie myself. Oh the shame. Ok, so it might not be that big of a deal that I’ve never tried my hand at making my own little pieces of heaven, also known as oatmeal cookies, but []

7 Up Pound Cake

I feel like I’m becoming a peddler for Cook’s Illustrated, but I can’t help that everything I’ve made so far has been amazing. This cake is so freggin delicious I ate almost the whole thing myself over the course of three days. I should feel a little ashamed for admitting that, but I don’t. This []

Apple Streusel Bars

This recipe has already made the rounds on a lot of food blogs I read, but that’s not too surprising considering how tasty this recipe is (I found this particular recipe over at The Cutting Edge of Ordinary). These bars taste ridiculously like apple pie, but with a streusel topping. And I sure do love []

Hello Dolly Bars

I saw this recipe for Hello Dolly Bars over at the Home Sick Texan. I don’t know how popular Hello Dolly Bars are or if it’s a regional dish, but I had never heard of them before. I decided to give the recipe a try since I knew Holden would have fun making them and []
