Lemon Angel Pie

This Lemon Angel Pie is a little taste of heaven! Today’s recipe is another Recipe Redo.  I have found that I shared some of my all time favorite recipes in the beginning days of the blog and the photos aren’t as great as I would like so I am gradually revisiting some of those recipes and redoing the post so you have better photos. It’s fun to dig through the archives too and reacquaint you with them. Today’s recipe for Lemon Angel Pie has been a favorite of mine for [Continue Reading…]

Chocolate Peppermint Ganache Cupcakes

When I was planning the menu for the bridal shower I hosted last week I knew there had to be at least one chocolate item on the menu.  How can you have a party for a bunch of women and not have chocolate? Since it is the holidays I thought it would be nice if it also had a holiday touch to it.  What says Christmas better than peppermint?   Chocolate and peppermint is a near perfect combination.  That’s why I keep a bag of Candy Cane Hershey Kisses stashed in [Continue Reading…]

Are you getting tired of me telling you how much I love candy corn yet?  It really isn’t even so much the taste of candy corn – athough I do love that too but it’s just that candy corn is so cute! I have been waiting to share today’s recipe with you for a year now!  I found this idea last Halloween over at  Our Sweet Life. I printed it off and stuck it in my Candy Corn File – yes I have a file just for candy corn ideas! [Continue Reading…]

Zucchini Cupcakes with Caramel Frosting

Never say never. In my brown sugar cupcake post I told you that I had promised Cali there would be no more cupcakes this summer – well I lied!  I will admit, after all that wedding cupcake baking we did get a little burned out on cupcakes at our house. But when a friend shared her CSA box with us and it was full of zucchini and two of you shared the same zucchini cupcake recipe with me I knew I had to go back on my word. I also needed [Continue Reading…]

Brown Sugar Cupcakes

Today’s cupcake post is the last one for a while. I promised Cali I wouldn’t make any more cupcakes the rest of the summer. Well, we’ll see. I have several more recipes in my files that some of you have given me as well as a few other friends and I am anxious to try them. Today’s recipe is for Brown Sugar Cupcakes. This recipe came from Martha Stewart’s Cupcakes. While it certainly wasn’t the prettiest cupcake at the wedding reception I do think it was my personal favorite. I [Continue Reading…]

We brought back two of the college students home with us – yeah! I’ll share a little about graduation tomorrow after I get a little sleep and get the two college students moved back in! I wanted to share with you a darling little gift I found waiting for me last week after I was gone for the weekend with girlfriends. My [Continue Reading…]

Lemon Cake Balls

As an avid reader of Pioneer Woman and Bakerella I have been seeing a lot about cake balls lately.  Even my friend Sherra was telling me about them. So when I had to take dessert to my Crafty Ladies night I decided I needed to give them a try.  Cake balls can be made with any flavor of cake mix so guess which flavor I used?   You guessed it – lemon!  Pioneer Woman made some fun Halloween ones using Red Velvet cake.  Bakerella made the cutest little Easter cake pops I have ever [Continue Reading…]
