Target . . . You are like a drug. Little demons jump on your shoulders, the second you enter that store.  They taunt you and whisper “sweet temptings” in your ears. Today, I was weak. I gave in . . . and bought a heart shaped cupcake pan. I filled those cute little hearts with Katherine […]

Lately . . . I seem to mini-ize everything. I’m just sure that’s not a real word, but it seems to fit. It’s “two bites” of heaven. If you have a big mouth . . . then you get “one bite” of heaven!   I couldn’t resist taking a bite myself. Well . . . two bites […]

Bananas are good for you.         Cupcakes . . . are not.         My Rationing:  Combine the two together, and only half of the cupcake is bad for you!                 The Bavarian Cream center pushes these cupcakes over the top.         I used to make my own, but not after I tried the Pastry Cream you can buy at […]

I’m trying . . . I’m really trying. I just can’t seem to be in 50 places at once. Baking, seems to be taking a back seat. grrrrr.   I did manage to bake these today . . . They are scrumptious and look pretty. They would be perfect for one of those Holiday Parties. […]

I’ve jumped the gun a bit on pie baking . . . and eating! Today, my kitchen smelled like heaven. See. Normally . . . I don’t start baking pies until Wednesday, but this year things might be mixed up a bit. We might be making a long trip – I will have to explain […]

This just happens to be one of my favorite desserts. Yes . . . it’s one of those little perks of life, but you can’t make it very often. Why? You’ll have to duct tape yourself to your treadmill! It is perfect for the holidays and I promise you . . . you won’t be trying […]

I certainly don’t eat doughnuts very often, but Apple Fritters have been weighing heavily on my mind. As I was rummaging through my stacks of recipes, I came across this Food Network recipe for Banana Beignets. OK . . . Do I make Fritters or Beignets?  There really isn’t much difference. I happened to have […]

Is there anything cuter than a mini cupcake? NOPE! The only thing better is eating one, or two or three. It took me a while to convince my kids while growing up, that veggies and cake go quite well together. I think they are finally on board. So . . . what should you do with all […]

 Don’t you think that fall screams Caramel Apples? I don’t make these often, because I can’t resist eating them. This caramel recipe is a long time family favorite. I promise you . . . Once you make homemade Caramel, you’ll never unwrap a store bought caramel again.  To be honest, I’ve never dipped the bottom of a Caramel Apple in […]

My good husband is quite used to me cooking, baking . . . and messing up the kitchen. I believe that I’ve mentioned many, many times that he really doesn’t care for sweets. Ugggg. Yesterday, I made his favorite banana bread again – In his mind, it doesn’t fall in the category of Sweets. Him:  “Have […]

Fall is here, in all it’s glory . . . although we are in the 80’s today. That is very unusual for Idaho! I’m not complaining though – I love fall. I love the leaves falling from the trees, the smells of harvest and the abundance from our gardens. I’ve been anxious to try a new Cobbler […]

Did you know that you can almost remove a toe with your food processor? Oh Yes you can! I almost did.  It hurts. I’d post a picture of my left foot, but since this is a food blog . . . I won’t do that to you.  I keep the food processor on a shelf […]

I received a nice email today from someone who asked, “Did you fall off the face of the Earth!” Nope. I’m still here . . . just slow. I’m truly a home-body, but lately I’ve just felt like shopping!  Oh Dear, this is not good.  Staying home is the better alternative. Why you ask? You […]
