A summertime favorite growing up was s'mores. We would make them while camping along with tin foil dinners and banana boats. Some roasted their marshmallows perfectly, some lit them on fire, and some just ate them raw. It was always a fun and delicious tradition. Years later when I became a newlywed, my husband and I bought an outdoor fire pit and had a few friends over for s'mores. I creates a s'mores bar with some fun new ingredients. Today, I want to share some of those with you! . . .
Easy Lemon Bars are something I remember as being a "grown-up" dessert when I was a kid. My mom would make them occasionally and I don't remember particularly liking them. Funny how as you grow up so does your taste. I Love Lemon Desserts! Now that I'm an adult I love lemon desserts - and lemon bars are at the top of the list! But I also love lemon cookies, trifles with lemon filling. It's on my to-do list to put my lemon curd recipe on the blog, because it's a favorite as . . .
This lemon cookies recipe are on loan from a friend. At their house they call them call them crack cookies. is that too harsh of a thing to say here? They call them this because they are so good they are severely addicting. Just the glaze itself you could bathe in. no joke. How to make healthy lemon cookies If you want to make a little healthier option with these cookies try substituting the oil for greek yogurt! I've noted the measurements down in the recipe card. You honestly can't taste . . .
Years ago I belonged to an amazing group of women who loved to craft. Each month we would come together and exchange hand made cards. We called it Card Swap. On one of these evenings one of my friends, Trisha, shared this delicious toffee apple dip. We all ate and ate and ate this stuff until it was gone! Perfect For A Party I've since shared this recipe with so many people and I have made it for many a gathering. As a tradition I make this dip every Halloween for an adult costume party we . . .
My favorite dessert is cheesecake. I love everything about it. About four years ago my friend Katelynd mentioned that she created a killer white chocolate raspberry cheesecake recipe, I was all over it. I bugged her about it about a thousand times. She was so kind to give me and you a step by step to this delicious dessert. Meet Katelynd First off, let me introduce you. This is Katelynd. Momma to four littles, including a set of twins, baker, crafter, and business owner. . . .
I have to admit, when I first heard about yogurt making I shunned the idea. Why would I spend 16 hours creating yogurt at home when I can easily purchase it at the store? Then one day, I just decided to go for it. I had read many people's experiences in various forums and decided I needed to give it a try, even if I didn't know if it would turn out. I went with the cold start yogurt method because it seemed the least painful. To my surprise - it did work! And it was creamy and delicious and . . .
I received this no-fail chocolate cupcake recipe from a friend many many years ago. After I had ooed and awed about the delicious perfect cupcake and asked what her secret was- she directly copied it word for word from her recipe card. The recipe card makes me smile. It's titled No Fail Cupcakes and it's wording is just as my grandma would have worded. Semi-specific yet straight forward. These really are the easiest to make and hardest to mess up. You most likely have all of the . . .
Hey guys - it's my birthday month, 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?! Perfect Homemade Dough The dough is my mother-in-law's recipe and it is so so . . .

As a kid I ALWAYS requested funfetti cake for my birthday. I loved that frosting with the waxy little numbs of sprinkles. So it's only appropriate to have funfetti-inspired birthday cake cookies! Bet You Can't Eat Just One! My husband loved these little babies! They are sweet and fun and the perfect little bite of perfection.

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. Fondue At Home One of my fondest memories is visiting a fondue restaurant with . . .
On our final day we ventured into Liberia to try a famous restaurant. The restaurant is owned by 3 brothers, first it started out in a tiny house but their food was so good it grew and grew. It's now about 3 houses combined and basically takes up a whole block. They had all sorts of delicious sea food, casados, fried rice and for dessert flan cheesecake. I really wanted to recreate this dish so we could make it at home. They served it out of little ramekins and I thought it would be perfect to . . .
