Texas Sheet Cake Cookies

I am aware that I have already posted a chocolate recipe this week.  I am also aware that there can NEVER be enough chocolate recipes, cookie recipes and more importantly…easy recipes.  If you have never been fortunate enough to have a piece of Texas Sheet Cake, than I am truly sorry.  I ate my first […] Read more…

Fresh Peach Turnovers

Today I am back with another fruit recipe, Fresh Peach Turnovers.  I love fresh fruit and peaches are both delicious and reasonably priced right now.  When I bought them I knew I wanted to make a pie but I quickly decided to make turnovers.  I am a sucker for individually portioned food and these little […] Read more…

Twix Icebox Cake

My step daughter Harley’s favorite candy bar is a Twix.  I had been researching recipes because I knew I wanted to try my hand at an icebox cake.  I just hadn’t quite narrowed down my flavors…until I grabbed a Twix candy bar to bring home and thought it would be perfect.  If you have never […] Read more…

Caramel Drumstick Ice Cream Pie

Drumstick Cones are such an iconic summer treat.  Who wouldn’t love to have one on a hot summer day?  When I was a kid, my sisters and I would ride our bikes to The Westside Store {a little country store about a quarter mile from our house} almost every day to buy a treat and […] Read more…

Strawberry Shortcake with Sweet Biscuits

Fresh Raspberry Gallette with Lime Glaze

Spring has finally sprung around here!!  I love the blue skies, warmer weather, smell of fresh cut grass, wild flowers on hikes and fresh ripened produce.  If you haven’t had a Gallette before then you need it in your life.  When I teach my students how to make them at school, I always explain it […] Read more…

Pinata Cupcake

When I owned the deli and bakery I made a lot of cupcakes.  Most of the time customers wanted them to be filled with something delicious.  At first I was intimidated…I didn’t go to culinary school.  I am self taught {with the help of Mom and Mrs. Johnson} and so sometimes my methods might not […] Read more…
