Next week we have some BIG, exciting posts planned + some really great goodies. If you have been a loyal reader of OSD for a while you know that during the holidays we like to a big giveaway for you. Sometimes several separate big items, sometimes 1 grand giveaway. This year we are changing things up. It's not just a giveaway! It will be a whole week of tips, tricks, recipe on how to SERVE others through food! Serving We are surrounded by people all day everyday who are always in need of . . .
So I like pumpkin rolls, alot. Every fall I make oodles of them. Wrap them up and store them in the fridge, cut a slice or two for guests. Maybe a quick after school snack for the kids. They are awesome. Best part they are pretty simple to make. Pumpkin rolls make great gifts for the holiday's or as a dessert for a party! They are pretty simple to make as well, just mix up the batter and pour into a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake! Then invert onto a tea towel dusted with . . .
Tis the season for pie!!!! With the holidays right around the corner I wanted to offer up an easy alternative to your traditional pie. A slab pie has all of the components of a regular pie, except it feeds a crowd. A slab pie is perfect for a big family gathering or a friends-giving. I created this recipe from start to finish with my KitchenAid Stand Mixer. My kitchenAid mixer is a staple in my kitchen. Besides cakes and cookies, I love to shred chicken and make dips and frostings in . . .
This sauce is a recipe that has been sittin' around in my cupboard for years. It's a classic, timeless perfect chocolate sauce. It's so purrrfectly chocolatey so to satisfy the cravings of your choc-o-holic needs, but not too rich for those who are *gasp* not inclined toward the chocolate things of this world. You will still be wrapped around this sauce's little finger. Top it on your ice cream. Top it on your cheese cake, make banana splits, or bottle it up and give it to your friends. (you . . .
Are you wondering where in the world the name of this dessert came from?! I grew up with my mom (and then me) making this dessert probably more than any other dessert in our house. It's got 4 layers, which is why it's called Barbershop Quartet! Weird, I know, but a lot more interesting than Lots of Chocolate and White Fluff, yeah? This is a pretty simple one to make, and even my chocolate-hating husband likes it. He claims the chocolate pudding doesn't taste like . . .
If there is one thing that I have served at gatherings that is always a hit - it is this chocolate fondue! The recipe is simple and it is really such a crowd pleaser. I received this fondue pot as a wedding gift and I've used it so so many times for various recipes - but chocolate fondue is by far the favorite. Fondue can also be made in a saucepan and served warm in a dish if you don't have a fondue pot. One of my fondest memories is visiting a fondue restaurant with friends when I was . . .
One of the things I kept seeing you could bake with the pressure was cheesecake. Sound perfect, right? You get the moisture needed for cheesecakes, and a quick bake time so you can start chilling them. Because CHEESECAKE! I tried this three different times until I got the cook time right. I used my Grandma's cheesecake recipe, I love it every time. I've done mini cheesecake bites as well as a regular cheesecake in a 9" pie plate, but I mostly wanted to test out baking methods for the . . .
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 post is sponsored by Baskin-Robbins. I have a 5 month old little boy. He is so smiley and rolly polly and precious. It's all I can do to not nibble him all day long. When I was pregnant with him I MAJORLY craved Baskin-Robbins. I sent my husband on late night runs ALL.THE.TIME. So when Baskin-Robbins asked us if we wanted to try their new Warm Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich there was no way I was going to say no. My little family made an evening of it - everyone got to choose . . .
This raspberry sour cream 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 . . .
