Happy Easter Cakes

It has been a couple years since I have made a layer cake, but for this Easter I decided to bake two of them. (I will be posting my recipes in days to come). For those of you looking for decorating ideas, I wanted to go ahead and post pictures of my creations. The first […]

Caramel White Chocolate Oatmeal Pudding Cookies

I just love the new Duncan Hines Frosting Creations packets….I have had so much fun experimenting with them in my pudding chip cookie and fudge recipes! Here I used their caramel flavor with french vanilla pudding mix, white chocolate chips, and rolled oats. They were a delight…a rich caramel backdrop with plenty of rich and […]

Sunshine Breakfast Pudding Cookies

I made up these cookies last week, and they are just full of unique and delicious ingredients. Instant white chocolate pudding mix makes them extra soft. Orange flavored Duncan Hines frosting creations packets give a pleasant citrus boost. Rolled oats and chopped dates add some pleasant body and texture. Plenty of creamy white chocolate chips […]

Jelly Bean Math (with free pdf download)

Some of you may not know this, but before I became a stay at home mom and food blogger, I was a teacher. (I have both a bachelors and masters degree in elementary education). Prior to getting married and becoming pregnant with my daughter, I frequently substituted and also taught kindergarten and third grades. You […]

Robin Eggs White Chocolate Magic Bars

There has recently been a round of magic cookie bar recipes circulating the internet. Dorothy at Crazy For Crust is a genius when it comes to this category. The Domestic Rebel also posted a rather interesting take on the bars. With Easter coming up this month, my daughter and I came up with our own […]

Olive Garden Pasta e Fagioli Soup (Copycat recipe)

When I saw this recipe on, I just knew I had to try it. My parents and I are big fans of the soup and salad special at Olive Garden (although they go more frequently than I; my husband prefers Red Lobster when given the option). For the price, there’s not much beating an […]

York Peppermint Patty Fudge

Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, I have a brand new fudge recipe for you. It is loaded with white chocolate and peppermint flavor. A heaping cup of chopped York peppermint patties are dotted throughout this delicious treat. Refreshing, rich, and festive, this is the perfect addition to an Irish meal.   York Peppermint […]

Big Batch M&M Fudgy Brownies

If you like fudgy and moist brownies, then this recipe is for you. It makes a HUGE half sheet pan, and best of all, can be whipped up in just one large bowl. This is one of those recipes that I made up by accident…Originally I intended on baking a batch of one of my […]

White Chocolate Lemon Oatmeal Funfetti Pudding Cookies

Last week I posted the recipe for white chocolate lemon oatmeal pudding cookies. My husband, daughter, and I enjoyed these so much that I thought I’d try them again. This time, I added one cup of rainbow sprinkles to the batter. Turning these lemon cookies into “funfetti style” really amped up the sweetness and texture. […]
