Easy Homemade Chocolate Fudge

Easy Homemade Chocolate Fudge

I made at least half a dozen batches of chocolate fudge last fall. This easy recipe is the one I liked the most. This fudge consistently turned out creamy and delicious and completely and utterly satisfying. Here’s why I love this recipe. NO candy thermometer. 

Aldean’s Chocolate Pie

Aldean’s Chocolate Pie

A Thanksgiving and Christmas tradition in my family is my grandma’s homemade chocolate pie. This from-scratch chocolate pie is simple and wholesome. It’s just creamy and sweet, cozy and comforting, just as the holidays should be. It’s nothing fancy, and that’s what makes it perfect. 

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake

Layers of moist, rich chocolate cake. Cream cheese in the peanut butter frosting to cut through some of the richness. A peanut butter fudge ganache. I first made this Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake for Alex’s birthday 7 years ago. We had a party, fed it

Many people love fruit pies. Not me. I love fruit, but it’s best fresh or dried, and usually unsweetened. Let’s have fruit as part of our meal, and have our dessert be a pie that’s smooth and creamy, like this Coconut Cream Pie. Coconut Cream 

Vegan Orange Cupcakes

Vegan Orange Cupcakes

For the longest time, I searched for an orange cake that was as bright and citrusy as I thought an orange cake should be. 4 years ago, I finally found it. These orange cupcakes (or muffins – call them what you will) are loaded with 

Microwave Peanut Brittle

Microwave Peanut Brittle

I first found this recipe for Microwave Peanut Brittle 4 years ago, and quite honestly, it’s fantastic. Alex and I are not peanut brittle lovers, but we sneak bites of this every day until I package it up. I’ve made batches and batches of it
