A Taste of Summer

Buttermilk Lime Shortbread Bars

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

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

Fruit Cobbler

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

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 […]

Manhattan Cheesecake Revisted

Manhattan Cheesecake

A couple of years ago, I wrote about our family love of Manhattan Cheesecake.  Our love hasn’t waned one bit and I thought I’d share the recipe again for anyone who missed it the first go around.  (on the off chance you don’t feel like baking, Cheesecake Pie is an ideal alternative.) This: People.  I almost […]

Lemon Bars

Lemon Bars

* An oldie, but yummy post worth a second look. * A couple of years back, I shared the story about how I would make my MIL a chocolate cake every year for her birthday. For years, she ooohed and awwwwed over the different chocolate cakes I made her, until one day, maybe 20 years […]

I love pound cake.  I swear I could eat an entire loaf all by myself.  […]

OMT’s Salted Brown Sugar Butter Bars

Brown Sugar Butter Bars

Brownies are one of my favorite types of dessert bars, but some times (not often) I like to branch out to see what the world of non-chocolate bars holds for me. Oh hai, OMT’s Salted Brown Sugar Butter Bars! As y’all know, I never met a recipe I can’t adapt or change to my family’s […]
