Cowgirl Cookies

It’s January…you may think cookies were so last month. Spoiler alert! They aren’t. They are as now as now can be…especially when you mix in all sort of oats, raisins and of course a little chocolate. Cowgirl Cookies are a spin on the super popular “Cowboy” Cookie. I’ve made a...

Banana Cookies with Salted Caramel Frosting

These Banana Cookies with Salted Caramel Frosting are kind of perfect. Nope, there’s no melty chocolate, no chocolate chips, no sprinkles to make them pretty. They are all beige and unassuming…rather boring looking, if you will. But oh. Don’t let their rather average looks fool you.

Soft Chocolate Sugar Cookies

I will be honest here…I had never eaten a Chocolate Sugar Cookie until I made this recipe. I don’t really think that’s too weird…right? I do consume my fair share of cookies, but a Soft Chocolate Sugar Cookie was never on my radar.

Snowman Cake

I have had the idea for this Snowman cake for a few months… Of course getting around to MAKE the actual cake has been a bit of a struggle in motivation. You see, I am not a huge cake-making fan….specifically layer cakes. I mean, I LOVE to eat a gorgeous...

Nutella Hot Fudge Sauce

Nutella Hot Fudge Sauce is over the top decadent. Creamy, rich and full of Nutella flavor! The whole topic of conversation today is really over the top. Some may say excessive or unnecessary. I will politely agree to disagree.

Honeybun Cake

This Honeybun Cake is ridiculously moist, simple to make and coated in a sugary-honey glaze that makes it extra delicious! I took a poll on Facebook a few weeks ago asking what types of cakes you (as readers) want recipes for…either ones that are made in a 9×13 pan, a...

Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Scones

Chocolate Chip Cram Cheese Scones are soft and tender…like the perfect muffin/biscuit hybrid! I have not always been a scone person. They seem a bit fancy, like a crumpet or some other British pastry that should only be consumed with tea and your pinky in the air. And let’s be...
