Strawberry and Cream Scones

Strawberry and Cream Scones

These Strawberry and Cream Scones are among my favorite scones ever. I made them frequently in 2012 when I first tried them. It’s been such a long winter this year. I figured that if spring weather wasn’t going to arrive and stay, I should take […]

Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Sour Cream Coffee Cake

This delicious Sour Cream Coffee Cake was one of my favorite recipes of 2010. It was #74 of my 365 recipe challenge that year. I made it a few more times while we still lived in Illinois, but I began to focus on trying other […]

Happy Early Pi Day!

Happy Early Pi Day!

Happy early Pi Day! I thought about waiting until tomorrow, Pi Day , to talk about pie, but honestly, which is better? Making a pie on Pi Day, or making the pie the day before so you can eat it on Pi Day? I’d rather you […]

Sprinkle Scones

Sprinkle Scones

One of my goals for 2018 is to make fun weekend breakfasts. I’ve done this most weekends so far. One breakfasty thing I’ve missed has been scones, which I used to make all the time. So I knew that I had to make these Sprinkle […]

Hershey’s Best Brownies

Hershey’s Best Brownies

I think everyone needs a good brownie recipe. Certainly, everyone needs a good, fail-safe dessert recipe. One that you know will turn out every time you make it, no matter what. One that takes no time or effort at all to make. Preferably, one that […]

Pecan Fudge Pie

Pecan Fudge Pie

I’ve finally rediscovered a recipe for a Pecan Fudge Pie after, oh, about a decade. It was years ago (maybe 2007?) when I was in Houston and went to a place (a diner? I can’t remember the name) that was supposed to have amazing pies. […]

White Chocolate Cherry Shortbread

White Chocolate Cherry Shortbread

I first made these White Chocolate Cherry Shortbread cookies as my 279th recipe of 2010. For some reason, it’s taken me years to get around to making them again. Perhaps I forgot about them among all my recipes for brownies and rich bar cookies. And that’s […]

Best Cocoa Brownies

Best Cocoa Brownies

Happy National Dark Chocolate Day! One day during my first year of food blogging, I complained to my friends online that I wanted brownies. My friend Emily shared this delicious brownie recipe with me. I loved it. I wanted to originally title this post “OMG: Brownies,” […]

St. Louis Gooey Butter Cake

St. Louis Gooey Butter Cake

I’ve made St. Louis Gooey Butter Cake on this site more than once. But honestly, what’s one more recipe? In fact, this is the best recipe that I’ve tried yet. This recipe baked how it was supposed to, without being overdone, on the first try.

Easy French Bread

Easy French Bread

Every time I make homemade bread, I ask myself, “Why don’t I make bread all the time?” The main reason is that I shouldn’t eat bread all the time. But I bemoan that every time I make this French Bread. It’s just so incredibly easy.
