Coconut Palm Sugar Caramel Apple Bars

It’s apple season! Wait, no it’s not. But, that doesn’t matter, does it? No! It doesn’t! What time of the year is the best time to bake your favorite (or soon to be new favorite) apple recipes? Anytime you’ve made a run for a jumbo bag of organic apples, that’s when! Wadda ya know…I just […]

Double Fudge Brownies with Cream Cheese Frosting

I’m always…ALWAYS!…on the hunt for a new brownie recipe; they are a family favorite. While flipping through my recipe file, I found an old recipe card that had nothing on it except this brownie recipe. There was no attribution. No historic notes. No chocolate smudges. Nothing. I knew by looking at the recipe that I […]

Scottish Shortbread Love

In the realm of all thangs cookie-like, shortbread is my fav. I could eat shortbread, in any form, every day. NomNomNom. While Garry prefers traditional shortbread, I also enjoy this Dark Chocolate Shortbread, which I think makes an excellent gift. As is my habit of finding all things delicious to share here, I stumbled upon […]

Russian Teacakes With a Delicious Twist

Are you like me and already thinking about what kind of cookies you’re going to bake for Christmas?  YOU ARE?!  This is why we’re friends! While I like to shake up my cookie rotation every year, there are a few traditional classics that get made no matter what.  Russian Teacakes are one of those classics. […]

Easy Peasy Cheesecake Pie!

Who doesn’t love a recipe they can’t ruin? WHO?! This is one of them. Cheesecake pie is easy, fast and ruin-proof, not to mention delicious. I make this recipe a few times a year, more if someone requests it as their birthday pie. (what? you don’t have a go-to birthday pie? um, THIS!) It’s been […]

Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars? Yes, Please.

Credit this post with getting a jump on your pre-holiday baking ideas, or to WOW! guests that need wowing, with a bar that tastes like pie. Chocolate Pecan Pie that you eat with your fingers, because that’s the kind of barbarians we are! RAWR! Of course, there are folks who love them some pecan pie […]

A Taste of Summer

These bars were a huge hit with pretty much everyone I shared them with the first time around and I didn’t want the summer to pass us by before sharing the recipe again. I likey buttermilk. I am fond of plucking a lime from my tree to stuff into my beer. I adore shortbread. Combine […]

Homemade Peach Cobbler

More cobbler, y’all! First there was this one, made with blueberries and strawberries. Today, there is peach…PEACH COBBLER! Nommy nom nom. Before we get started, I did use fresh peaches in this cobbler, unlike last time when I used frozen blueberries and strawberries. Fresh or frozen works, but because it’s summer and fruit is a’plenty, […]

Homemade Fruit Cobbler That Will Make You Slap…Wait…Don’t Slap Anyone

Oh, mah babies. THIS. This cobbler came out of my oven smelling of sweet summer fruit and light cakey droolgoodness. I had to remind myself not to take a bite until it had cooled enough so it wouldn’t remove the skin from the roof of my mouth. THE TORTURE! As a good Southern gal, I […]

Natural Peanut Butter Peanut Butter Cookies

That title is a mouthful, right? So are these cookies: What I mean to say, however oddly stated, is that I made traditional peanut butter cookies with non-traditional peanut butter, aka natural peanut butter.  You know, the stuff you gotta stir.  The stuff with two ingredients: ground peanuts and salt.  The stuff with no sugar […]
