Valentine’s Toffee

I can’t believe January is already gone.  The hubby and I have been fighting colds all month (he gave me his cold).  It seems we get something this time of year every year.  Oh, well…

Do you want to make something special for your Valentine?  Why not make some delicious Valentine’s Toffee.  I would eat the entire batch in one sitting but I can’t let myself eat that much butter at one time.

Fresh Pumpkin Bread

A while ago I bought a large pumpkin and I intended to turn it into puree for some recipes I love.  I planned to make this addicting Fresh Pumpkin Bread.  The hubby says he hates anything pumpkin but he asked me to make more of this quick bread.

Mega M and M Blondies

I had seen Mega M&M’s on sale a short while ago.  Now the sale wasn’t a huge savings but the lure of Mega M&M’s was too strong, so I bought them.  Of course, I wasn’t going to open the package until I was ready to bake with them because they would disappear.  Hence, these yummy Mega M&M Blondies were born.  The hubby, family and friends loved these chocolaty bars.

S’mores Pie

A few weeks ago I went to my niece’s Birthday gathering at my sister’s house and I brought this pie S’mores Pie.  It is decadent and delicious and got rave reviews.  The photos need a little help though.  I tried to rush since it was the middle of the party and everyone wanted a piece.

Ultimate Crumb Peach Pie

We have two peach trees in the back yard and aside from my hubby giving some away and eating ten a day, I needed to make something with them that would use a lot of them so I made this yummy Ultimate Crumb Peach Pie.  The hubby and friends loved the pie.  I love the crumbs on anything.

Sluttier Slutty Brownies

We had a family get together about a week and a half ago for my Mom’s 81st Birthday.  I love to try out new things at these gatherings but I don’t leave out the tried and true.  I made a sluttier version of the Slutty Brownies everyone has seen on the internet.  I topped them with whipped ganache and they were a hit with the family.  The co-workers loved them too when the hubby and I took them to work.

Gooey Butter Cake

I’m late to the Gooey Butter Cake party but I’m a fan now.  I was curious to see what the hoopla was all about and this cake definitely warrants hoopla.  I used Paula Deen’s recipe which calls for boxed cake mix.  It’s a great way to use up cake mixes before they expire.  After making so many wonderful homemade baked goods, I can’t go back to plain cake mix cakes.

Whipped Ganache Devil Dogs

The 4th of July is just a few days away.  These Whipped Ganache Devil Dogs would make a welcome addition to any celebration.  I’ve added red, white and blue sprinkles to help celebrate the July 4th festivities but the sprinkles are totally optional.

Chocolate Overload Brookies Surprise

It’s been a while since I’ve posted.  March and April seen to have flown by with tons of work deadlines.  I’m taking a little latitude in calling these brookies but these Chocolate Overload Brookies Surprise are so fudgy and chocolaty I couldn’t really call them cookies.  Plus they’re made with a brownie mix.

Trc’niegl a.k.a. Zeppole #TwelveLoaves

Have you ever tried the fried dough found at all the Italian feasts?  Our family calls them Trc’niegl (as in the town my Dad and Grandparents came from) but they are generally known as Zeppole.  When made at home they are way better than the ones that are from the feast (not that I turn those away).
