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 […]

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. […]

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.

Maryland Fudge Cake

Maryland Fudge Cake

Every now and then, I come across the perfect recipe just when I am looking for it. Sometimes I see a recipe and think, “I should make that sometime.” Other times I come across a recipe and think, “I can make that tonight!” or “I […]

Nutella Cheesecake

Nutella Cheesecake

I was going to make something for a going-away party, and when I asked what the guest of honor’s favorite desserts were, her friends all said that she loved chocolate and peanut butter, Nutella, and the Brownie Cheesecake that I made last month. So it […]

Apple Pie Bars

Apple Pie Bars

The weather finally but briefly turned cooler in late September. We took advantage and drove an hour to pick apples. I don’t bother to use Amelia as an excuse. Sure, my 2-year-old had a lot of fun, but I go apple picking for me. I […]

Milk Chocolate Stout Ice Cream

Milk Chocolate Stout Ice Cream

It’s fall and I should be writing about apples and pumpkins and soups. It’s finally cool, and I will cook and write about some of these things soon, I promise. But in the meantime, let’s talk ice cream. I have no particular season for ice […]
