Littlest Pet Shop 3-Layer Cake

My daughter loves having homemade layer cake for her birthday. Two years ago I made her a Frozen cake, but last year my oven broke just prior to her party and I had to purchase one. This year we were back to homemade, and her request was a Littlest Pet Shop theme. My daughter LOVES […]

Peanut Butter Mini Cut-Out Cookies

My most visited page on this blog is peanut butter cut out cookies. As of this writing, it has been pinned over three thousand times. It’s no wonder, with its easily moldable dough that requires no chilling. The recipe is perfect for those who love peanut butter, yet not too strong for those who don’t. […]

Extra Pudding Oreo Chip Cookies

If you are a reader of my blog, then you know I am crazy for pudding chip cookies. This recipe is basically half of my regular recipe but with the normal amount of pudding mix. That means there is TWICE the pudding in these cookies as usual. These result in extremely fluffy and extra soft […]

Brownie Pie

This recipe came about during a heavy snowstorm we are receiving today. My daughter was experiencing some cabin fever, so I thought that baking something might take her mind off things. She asked to make a chocolate pie, but she didn’t want a pudding or a custard pie. After searching Pinterest for a while, I […]

2 ingredients Pumpkin Brownies

  This recipe for two ingredient pumpkin brownies has been floating around the internet for a while. Last Autumn I jumped the shark and finally made them. All one needs for the recipe is a standard box of brownie mix and a small can of pure pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix). I used a 9×9 […]

“Frozen” Chocolate & Vanilla Layer Cake with Vanilla Frosting

  My daughter recently turned five years old. Weeks in advance, she had requested a Frozen themed birthday party. We had the streamers, the balloons, the outfit, the whole nine yards. The only thing we needed was the cake. Last year (for the first time ever), I saved myself hours in the kitchen and bought […]

White Chocolate Ovaltine Pudding Cookies

A few weeks ago, I sent my husband to the store for some malted milk powder to use in my baking. He came back with a jar of Ovaltine. I spent a couple of weekends racking my brain about what I could make with this sweet delicious chocolatey powder. (The first three ingredients on the […]

Hershey Lover’s Brownies

For Easter this year, I decided to make one of my daughter’s very favorite desserts, the I Love Hershey Kisses Brownies that I developed back in 2011. The brownies live up to their name; they are loaded with Hershey chocolate, from the cocoa powder to the kisses (which make an appearance in both the brownie […]

Chocolate Almond Fudge

One of the fudges that makes its rounds at Christmas is chocolate walnut fudge. I decided to switch things up after the holidays, and made the recipe with almonds instead of the walnuts. The resulting treat was smooth and creamy as ever, and the almonds gave it a taste reminiscent of a Hershey bar with […]

Springtime Oatmeal Pudding Cookies

I get excited every season when the new baking products come out, and so far this year has not disappointed. Have you seen the new Nestle Springtime morsels? They come in 10 ounce bags and are a mixture of semi-sweet chocolate chips, yellow, and pink morsels (reminiscent of white chocolate). I substituted a bag into […]
