Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce


I have wanted to make this for quite a while but kept putting it off. I am not an ice cream fan like the rest of my family who believe that a day without ice cream is a day without sunshine. We had all the ingredients and were looking for something a bit sweet to…

Guest Post: Blackberry-Cherry Cobbler


I haven’t had a chance to try this delicious looking cobbler but I cannot wait. Blackberries and cherries are popping up everywhere right now. How fun would it be to go out berry picking and then making a delicious dessert with your berries?  I hope you will stop by and give Hazel from Cooking with…

Grilled Peaches with Ice Cream


We had a nice grilled steak last night with some nice Community Share Agriculture (CSA) potatoes and green beans. I love my CSA! I almost never serve dessert after dinner but we were looking for a quick sweet treat that I didn’t feel so awful about my kids having. While we were away there were…

Cream Cheese Danish Bars


Have people over all summer long? We wanted a sweet treat that was simple to make and serve and this certainly fit the bill. It is great for a morning treat with breakfast or an after dinner bite. We can’t wait to try this with other flavors and toppings! Verdict: I was skeptical that this…

Mexican Hot Chocolate Muddy Buddies


Are you celebrating Cinco de Mayo today? My daughter made this for us to snack on during the day. She loves making and coming up with all sorts of combinations for Muddy Buddies. This is a great recipe to make with kids. They can stir and pour!

Spring Sugar Cookie Bars


Being with my family I am not cooking much at all this week but here are some cookies we made. This is the recipe that I used for the St. Patrick’s Day cookies (click for link to original recipe) only with Spring colors. I love the addition of the sprinkles into the batter to add…

Salted Caramel Pretzel Brownies


I admit it. I am not a big desserts fan. Oh, I love a good piece of chocolate cake or dark chocolate candy from time to time but overall I’d rather have a bowl of mashed potatoes or an extra piece of meatloaf than dessert. But, the rest of my family loves dessert. I don’t…

St. Patrick’s Day Bar Cookies


My children are slightly older (13 and 16 years-old) but they still love to celebrate all the holidays. No holiday can go by without decorations, special food, or talk about our past celebrations. I love these cookies. They are so very easy to make and are so fun. You can change them with the holidays by…

Oreo Brownies


If you have been a follower of my blog for a while you know I mostly post recipes for entrees, sides and a few breads and very few sweets. I had my daughter make this recipe the other night and we were all surprised at how good it was. Verdict: Brownies with stuff in them…

Breadmaker Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Icing


For those of you dieting in the New Year my apologies but these were too good not to share! I dusted off the breadmaker the other day to make these Cinnamon Rolls. Yes, I said dusted off. My breadmaker used to be the second most used small appliance in my kitchen after my slow cooker…

Banana Pudding Chessman Dessert


Well, the Labor Day weekend is upon us. For some it is a three-day weekend for others, just another day at work. I hope whatever you do this weekend you find some time to have fun with your families, friends or enjoy some alone time. I have seen this dessert on Facebook, Pinterest and even…
