Black Bottom Coconut Bars

May 6, 2013

My Grandmother used to make these coconut tarts when I was growing up. They were my favorite thing that she would make. I’m still surprised that a coconut tart really appealed to me that much as a kid. I find that a lot of kids don’t like coconut. Heck, even a good number of adults. […]

Gooey Chocolate Crater Cake

April 30, 2013

This cake is not the type that should be judged on presentation. You probably shouldn’t bring it to a party in hopes of impressing people. It is desperately rough looking with big sunken holes- not exactly what one would initially find appealing. BUT! Once I tell you all about this cakes construction and why it […]

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Surprise Cupcakes

April 25, 2013

I’ve been trying like heck for the longest time to get this recipe up here. My girlfriend brought these treats into one of our church luncheons and they were a total showstopper. I had to have the recipe. Luckily, she was kind enough to give it to me with her blessing to publish it on […]

Well, finally I decided I would try my luck at it and hopefully take an equally appealing photo. Not quite successful… haha the bars came out delicious, but I used a different brownie recipe […]

Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

April 11, 2013

I’ve started to obsess over bananas. Ever since I stepped out of the realm of banana bread and figured out I could bake things other than quick bread with bananas, I find myself buying bananas simply in hopes that my daughter will ignore them long enough for me to bake with them. It all began […]

Peanut Butter Cup Cupcakes

March 18, 2013

I have been in a serious cupcake-experimenting mood lately. Not so much with any more cake recipe comparisons, but more so as far as fun flavor combinations. A few weeks back I made some KILLER Triple Chocolate Cupcakes. Killer. They were so good, I wish I could have one right now, Mmmmmmm : ) Well, […]

Bailey’s Irish Cream Cheesecake Brownies

March 4, 2013

I’m not much of a liqueur drinker. Or wine drinker. Or beer drinker. I pretty much just don’t like the taste of alcohol. Except! When it is hidden by a load of sugar hehehe surprised?? Whenever I think of Bailey’s, I think of my Mother. It’s not her favorite drink- she much prefers wine- but she does […]

Chewy, Chunky Blondies

February 28, 2013

Who out there likes their cookies/bars like they like their Ben & Jerry’s- chunky and chocked full of texture? (*waves hand enthusiastically*) I am a total texture junky. To me, this recipe is the Ben & Jerry’s of cookie bars. They are chocked full of ingredients- chocolate chips (of course), nuts, coconut, and butterscotch. And […]
