I have a tried and true recipe for brownies in a cast iron skillet that I absolutely love. However, the other day I really wanted to try marbling in some peanut butter. So I came up with this recipe and it took on a life of its own becoming more of a brownie pie than just a brownie. The pe MORE

 I have made gazillions (at least it feels that way!) of peanut butter cookies in my time. I decided to give them a chocolate twist by subbing out some of the flour with cocoa. Worked great and they had a wonderful chocolate taste. I think I'll make some sort of bar out of… MORE

Major yum! I was at the store the other day and they had bags of Baker's chocolate chunks on clearance as a discontinued item. So I bought a bunch and made these peanut butter chocolate chunk bars. These were great warm but even better at room temperature. You can certainly use regular choc MORE

Oh my! This has to be one of my favorite cakes to date. This uses a boxed white cake mix as the base, but I do want to try it again with a from scratch white cake recipe. I used my homemade cherry pie filling in this, but you can use any canned cherry pie filling. The cherry and almond flavor MORE

I've seen these cookies all over the internet. I used the recipe on All Recipes here. What a great dough! Rolls really nice, not sticky at all, even after adding the paste food coloring. I shaped mine into hearts by pinching the dough toward the lollipop stick then create an indent at the MORE

Yesterday I made this recipe for Cranberry Kuchen. This was definitely something different than I have made before. It was a yeast dough, but there's no kneading involved. That yeast dough is sandwiched between two layers of an egg mixture, then sprinkled with a crumb topping. The entire thi MORE

Wow, it's been since October since I posted here! I've become so busy with work that this blog has fallen by the wayside. I've added a reminder on my calendar to try and get here more often!  These white chocolate pumpkin blondies are amazing. They are perfect for the holidays an MORE

Cookies! Chocolate chip to be exact. In a stick! How fun is that? While there are a few that don't care for chocolate chip cookies, you are pretty much guaranteed to bring home an empty plate if you bring some to a get together or party. That's where these cooke sticks went; to a pool party wh MORE

You can use fresh or frozen blueberries for this delicious coffee cake. This would be good with other types of berries as well, so use whatever you like. Whatever you do though, make sure you try this, it's wonderful! The drizzle isn't really necessary as the crumb topping is great too, bu MORE

It's always way more exciting when you create your own recipe, rather than following one from a cookbook or website. I've made a few, I can probably count them on two hands, but every time that I do I feel such a sense of accomplishment! I guess that shows I have a real love for cookin MORE

About Me
My favorite things to cook
I love baking, especially cookies and cakes. :) I love cooking too, but I like to experiment, which can occasionally mean take out! ;)
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up in the convenience food era. My parents were divorced and I was a latch key kid. There weren't a whole lot of home cooked meals in my childhood, but lots of packaged and frozen goods. I try to make dinner every night for my family, though sometimes it's take out due to sports activities, etc. I'm envious of those that have their grandmother's recipes, I don't have anything like that.
My cooking triumphs
i've created a few recipes of my own, one I even won a contest for :) I love experimenting and finding new ways to combine flavors. I feel triumphant every time I bring something to my neighbors, they always give me rave reviews!
My cooking tragedies
I try to prepare whatever I can early in the day, so that the hectic afternoon is less... well, hectic! I tend to be pretty frugal, so I'm always pantry diving. I also menu plan every week, it saves me from A) running to the store in the middle of the week and B) getting take out.
