Here is a fabulous idea from Betty Crocker. I think it would be a yummy, easy dessert to serve during a summer party, Bridal shower, etc. Nestled between the brownie layers is White Chocolate pudding, then topped with strawberries. You could even drizzle Hot Fudge sauce over the top, to make it even fancier. This […]

Today I made these yummy cookies, since I had two bananas that were screaming – “Use me – Eat me!” It was between banana bread or cookies. The cookies won out. This recipe is from a cookbook called “Martha Stewart’s Cookies.” It calls for chocolate chunks, but I knew that if I added the chocolate, […]

Pecan Pie is one of my weaknesses. I can’t resist eating it, so I usually only make it at Thanksgiving time. One of my Son in Laws (Stacey) also really likes it, so I don’t eat the whole darn thing by myself. Pecan bars are even easier to make. If you haven’t ever made them, […]

Who doesn’t love the taste of chocolate and peanut butter together. When you add coconut, nuts and Eagle Brand milk, you just can’t miss. I always buy […]

I’ve made many blondies in my day, and this recipe is a keeper. They are soft, dense & chewy, like a good brownie or blondie should be. The added coconut give these bars a wonderful flavor mixed with the chocolate. Use a good quality chocolate chunk or chip, so you don’t get that waxy taste […]

Don’t these individual berry pies look scrumptious! This is a fast and easy recipe from Pillsbury. By using already made pie crust, you can save yourself a lot of time. If you have the time though, make homemade, because it’s always better. We always have frozen raspberries in the freezer, from last years berry harvest. […]

You could also drizzle white or milk chocolate on the top, or dip the entire bar for that matter. I […]

Do you want a fancy way to dress up a cupcake? This recipe is from Better Homes and Gardens, and I think it looks delicious and beautiful. It is a simple cupcake, flipped over. Under the chocolate, hides strawberry jam. A simple Chocolate ganache is then drizzled over the top of the cupcake. The crowning jewel […]

This recipe is from “Down home with the Neely’s.” They appeared on GMA this morning, and I enjoy all their recipes. We all love lemon bars, and these are delicious as well.

This recipe is also from Pat and Gina Neely (Down home with the Neely’s). It is similar to Coffee Cake. It’s a traditional Southern butter cake filled with pecans and cinnamon and finished with a light sugar glaze. At their restaurant, this dessert rules the house! You can serve it with icecream at the end […]

They appeared on GMA this morning with three great recipes, that I’m sure will be scrumptious. Take for instance this good old fashioned cobbler. I have a recipe similar to this one, for peach […]
