Movin' to the country, gonna eat a lot of peaches. Movin' to the country, gonna eat me a lot of peaches... We're probably older than some of you, which means some of you don't know why I'm moving to the country and am gonna eat a lot peaches. It's a song! I was in 5th grade, and all the boys were singing it (that, and doing that wrist-flick thing...and wearing puka shell necklaces and sambas) and I still love it to this day! Welcome to Peach Week! My sister-in-law is from Georgia, and she . . .
This cake is hands down one of my favorite desserts. My mom made this growing up and I've continued to make it as an adult. I've served this time and time again and have yet to meet someone who didn't ADORE this cake. It is the perfect balance of tart and sweet. The cake is dense, served cold, and moist! It's one of those desserts that you just want to keep eating and eating and eating. You make the cake in a jelly roll pan - the large 11x16 baking sheets with a lip that you can . . .
There are two types of people. KitchenAid lovers and people who use mixer-that-shall-not-be-named. I am a a KitchenAid lover (admirer, fan, devout user) through and through. It goes back generations, and when the girls in my family get married we recieve a KitchenAid stand mixer as a wedding gift from my Grandma and Aunts. It's not just a KitchenAid they pass on though, they transfer a passion for cooking and baking. The many hours I've spent with my Grandma and Mom over her KitchenAid making . . .
In these hot summer months my kids are always looking for a snack.T hey seem to be always searching the cuboards for a sweet treat over the savory. I love making these with them! Making these smoothie pops cures that sweet tooth without adding a single drop of sugar. These Orange Creamsicle Pops are creamy, sweet and full of healthy ingredients. I picked up some beautiful, fresh oranges and all the other ingredients at Ralphs. My favorite grocery store to go shopping at. I recently . . .
Grandma recipes are the best. You know they're foolproof because they've been baking them for decades, they usually have simple ingredients and directions, and nostalgia certainly makes everything taste better. My Grandma made this cake all of the time growing up, and my Dad has grown to request either this or my other Grandma's cheesecake for his birthday. Sounds like he has a thing for nostalgia too, eh? This perfectly fluffy cake and the rich, nutty icing is seriously easy and . . .
This recipe has been on our blog for years and has always been one of my favorite cakes! Many of you know this but years ago, this blog was a group blog with many many contributors. As the blog grew and life went on we narrowed down the contributors to those with serious interest in food blogging. Many of the recipes shared by our previous contributors are still on this blog and so delicious! Because I love this recipe so much I decided to give it a little facelift and bring it forward a few . . .
Well this dessert is going to rock your socks! Simple enough to whip up the morning before your barbecue, yet delicious enough to make everyone go back for seconds. I recently made this fresh strawberry pie for some neighbors we had over for dessert. Their cute little boy ate it up and kept asking for more. Licking his lips he said, "Oh this is good! Mom will you please get the recipe?" I was flattered of course, but then again I knew it would be good! And if your wondering if this is the . . .
The other night my husband's boss came for dinner. I served up Desi's Rubio's chicken tacos in honor of taco Tuesday, which I knew would be a hit and easy to whip up. And then I had to come up with a dessert. I had some apples in the produce drawer - so I decided on apple crisp. Then I took it a step further and decided caramel apple crisp would be tastier. I pulled out Steph's salted caramel recipe - and this dessert was born. I made them individual sized, because who doesn't love . . .

Hey guys - so today is my birthday, so I thought - why not share a birthday recipe? I'm not a big bread maker. I'm not a patient person and all the waiting and raising just isn't my jive. I'll make rolls a few times a year and cinnamon rolls a few times a year. That's about my max. But what better reason to make bread than a birthday? Who wouldn't love to wake up to these birthday cake sweet rolls?! The dough is my mother-in-law's recipe and it is so so perfect. I did a twist on . . .
