Simple Applesauce Cake with Caramel Frosting


First off this is a horrible picture of a delicious cake. All the pictures I took of this cake were weird. I don’t know if my phone didn’t like all the brown colors or what but they were all blurry or weird colored. Anyway, if you can get past that this is a delicious cake…

Easy Pumpkin Bread


Now that we are really feeling like it is almost fall with the back-to-school days upon us it is time for all things pumpkin spice. I am not usually a fan of pumpkin spice but am all in on team apple cider. This pumpkin bread though is a favorite of our entire family. My sister-in-law…

S’More Nachos


We were using up the last little bit of gas left in the tank of the grill the other day. We decided to try some S’more Nachos. They are regular S’More ingredients crumbled in layers in an aluminum foil pan. You can simply throw the pan away after you are all done! Super simple to…

Gingerbread Muffins


  My favorite cookies are molasses. I love the them with a bit of icing in the center. But, gingerbread is a close second. These muffins are a combination of the two. More molasses than gingerbread but still with that tang. My kids loved that they looked like molasses cookies. These would be perfect for…

Poke Cake


I love these cakes. They are super simple and you can make them in so many combinations of flavors. We went for the more traditional yellow cake with chocolate pudding and a chocolate ganache.  The kids were chomping at the bit for it even before dinner started. Verdict: These are simple and fun. The simple…

Texas Sheet Cake


I used to spend a lot of time at my best friend’s house when we were in 9th grade. This is similar to a cake that we used to make while at her house. I had never heard of it before but they made it all the time. It is a thinner cake made in…

Simple Chocolate Bundt Cake


I got to choose the dessert the other night and we have not had chocolate cake in forever! My daughter was not really into making a cake from scratch so we made a bundt cake from a cake mix AND a brownie mix. This was so easy but felt so decadent. Verdict: This was super…

Christmas Treats: Rolo Pretzels


My daughter received an Easter treat from a family friend of pretzels topped with Hershey Kisses and M&Ms. She loved them! Then she remembered that she had heard of them being made with Rolos too. Adding caramel she knew would give that sweet & salty taste an extra boost. These are so simple to make…

Week 9 Christmas Treats: Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bread


I will admit of not being a fan of the Pumpkin Spice Latte but I do love things with Pumpkin Pie flavors. Pumpkin bread is one of my favorites. Add a layer of sweet cream cheese filling and some mini chocolate chips and this is a delicious breakfast bread. This recipe makes two large loaves…

Christmas Treats Week 8: Blueberry Lemon Scones


Okay. If you are following along I missed week 7. I will go back and fill it in later but wanted to keep going with my project. Life sometimes gets in the way of things and I didn’t want it to completely derail my efforts. Verdict: These are so fresh tasting. At a time when…

Week 6 Christmas Treats: Mississippi Mud Brownies


When I was younger I was the master of making unique desserts out of boxed brownie mixes. Then I discovered the joy of homemade brownies. I could whip up a batch in no time. But, lately my kids have wanted to make brownies from a box. I am fine with that. They both know how…
