The other French Pancake...and no, not a crepe!

Imagine it's Sunday morning. The family is in their jammies and it's time for breakfast. Junior wants pancakes but your little princess wants French toast. Instead of making both, be creative, be daring, live on the edge and make (drum roll) French Pancakes!  No not crepes, that's totally different. Think French Toast but instead of bread, use pancakes!

Those Sound Sweet! Cracker Cookies

A few weeks ago I was contacted by the great people over at Solo Foods to enter their Sweetest 16 Baking Recipe Contest. They sent me a box chock full of almond paste and several of their pastry and pie fillings and asked me to come up with an original recipe. I pondered over this for a while before I began to bake. I wanted to make something different and not the typical macaroon or almond cake. I almost entered my recipe for The King of Cakes: Baumkuchen but decided to think a bit outside of the box.

Easy Peasy Reese's Pieces Blondies

Several years ago, back when I first started blogging, I came up with a recipe for Snickerdoodle Blondies for one of my coworkers. This little recipe has been one of the my most popular, only second to my Better Than Starbucks Lemon Poundcake, and has a bit of a cult following. There are so many reasons to love this recipe: they take almost no time to make, their taste and texture appeals to the pickiest of palettes, they are inexpensive to make, they smell amazing when they are baking.. I could go on and on! Not only that but you probably have the ingredients for them in your kitchen right now. No pomp or circumstance needed! Just real butter, please but that should go without saying.

October Spice Cake with Cardamom-Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

Today is my birthday! And just like every birthday for the last six years, I made a dessert to share with my friends and family. I know it's odd and might even seem a little self-aggrandizing, but it's something I really look forward to doing every year.

Teensy-Weensy Turnovers

Aren't these darling? Kids of all ages can't help but fall head-over-heals in love with these little guys - they are just so adorable! And if cuteness wasn't enough, they are a breeze to make, relatively inexpensive, and you don't have to have any special equipment to make them. Wouldn't these would be a fun little project for the wee-ones to make the next time you have a rainy Saturday and nothing fun to do?

PeanUtOh Butter Fudge

I was dead set on making this fudge before I went to bed. Why? Well, because I'm a hard-headed dork, of course. Actually there's really no good reason. I wanted to make this in spite of the fact that I only had about four hours sleep AND got up at 5:30am to workout AND made dinner AND cleaned a good portion of the house (I even scrubbed a large swath of my kitchen floor on my hands and knees!) By 11 o'clock I was one tired chick and should have gone to bed; but no, the fudge insisted on being made so I stayed up.

Jake's Oreo Cake with Chocolate Pan Frosting

My son's thirteenth birthday was back in January but I completely forgot to post about his cake! Jake went totally bonkers over it and said it was the best birthday cake I have ever made for him. Sometimes it's the simple recipes that make the biggest impression.

Snickerdoodle Bundt Cake

For the last few days I've been wracking my brain trying to figure out what I could bring to a little Ladies Only PJ Party I was invited to. I wanted to make something that would appeal to crowd, but needed to be easy to whip together after work. I was leaning toward a Bundt cake because I knew it would be speedy and usually tastes good warm (I knew I'd be dashing to the party the moment the cake was done), but other than that, I was at a loss.

Super Easy Chocolate Fudge

Looks a little like a martian landscape or an electron microscope image, doesn't it? Actually it's just a close up of the surface of the incredible fudge I made for my friend Pooja for her birthday today. She wanted something "very chocolaty" and left the rest up to me.

Dark Chocolate Fudge Milky Way Cake

Michelle loves chocolate and I mean loves it. She's also one of my first fans, always eager to try whatever confection I had decided to share. I didn't want to let her down, but I was having a real problem trying to decide what to make.

Strawberry Nostalgia Cake

Today's was Linda's five year anniversary at our company. She's currently the office admin for our team, which is at least 200+ people. Today, we "surprised" her (I think she knew what was going on) by having a little party to acknowledge her career milestone and for all of us to say thank you for being so awesome.

Frito Bark

Say you need to make a dessert in a jiffy but all you have in the house is a bag of chocolate chips, butter, brown sugar and a bag of Fritos (hey, it could happen!). What do you do? You whip up a great little treat that everyone will love.

Cream Sherry Bundt Cake

 This baseball season has been a wacky one. We've had more cold, wet, and downright miserable game days than I can count. And through it all, the steadfast family and friends of the players sat huddled under blankets and umbrellas, clapping and cheering for every kid on the team. I cannot count myself among this incredible group of fans, I have only attended games when the weather was decent. Selfish? Probably. But considering all the games and practices I've attended over the years and my sincere hatred of being cold, I felt it was okay. Besides, I always tried to have a hearty home cooked meal ready and waiting when the games were over. That counts, right?

"Snow Storm in April" Bars: A (modified) Seven Layer Bar

seriously think this is the easiest dessert I have ever made that didn't involve a mix. My coworker Nitin wanted something with chocolate and coconut for his birthday. I really wanted to make him my Mandy's Candy bars which are always a hit, but that seemed like a cop-out. Then I stumbled on this recipe and couldn't resist. Could four ingredients really taste that good?

Individual Banana Chocolate Strudels

I kept things simple for Craig and I really think that the simplest recipes make the best food. Craig wanted something chocolate and really loves bananas. Last year I made him black bottom banana cream pie so I needed to think outside of the pie tin this year.

Snickerdoodle Blondies

This year Buckles (that's my co-worker's name) requested brownies for her birthday treat and said I could be as creative as I wanted. She just asked that whatever I came up with  didn't include nuts. I wanted to make her something really unique and unexpected. After a few days of thinking about it I had the idea for creating a Snickerdoodle Blondie. I wanted to combine the same texture of a brownie with the crunchy cinnamon shell of a Snickerdoodle. I couldn't find any on the web, so I invented one. This recipe came out exactly as I wanted! It's nothing short of bliss!

Traditional Pastel de Tres Leches Cake

This cake is one of my favorites. I searched a long time to find the perfect recipe because I was dead set on not using a boxed mix. I wanted to make a very traditional, from scratch version and see how it compares to the stereotypical versions I have had at Mexican restaurants. I can tell you this with certainty: there is no comparison!
