Scones with Raspberry Jam

This scone recipe was a must-have for the month of September. Why, you ask? Well, for starters, IT’S FAIR SEASON! I know it’s supposed to be called the Washington State Fair, but old habits die hard and I still call it, the Puyallup Fair–SUE ME. INGREDIENTS: 2 cups of all purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon of […]

Snickerdoodle Ice Cream Sandwiches

Snickerdoodles are a bit nostalgic to me. Back when they used to teach Home Economics in middle school, it was my first, homemade cookie that I ever had; they were soft; they were chewy; they were crunchy around the edges, yet soft and chewy in the middle. At the time, I thought they were the […]

Lemon Cake with Lemon Icing

I don’t discriminate–I love cake of all sorts. BUT I must say…lemon cake with lemon icing is the way to my heart (well, at least at the moment, it is!). This cake has the perfect balance of sweet-to-tartness that will tickle your taste buds. It’s soft, not overly-sweet, and has a very soft crumb. Your […]

Lemon Bars

I was on the search for a good lemon bar recipe for a while…all came up short. Most had too little crust, or not enough lemon filling, or waaaay too much sugar! Even the amount I use in this recipe is the most that I’ve ever used! BUT that’s the price you pay when you’re […]

Easy Apple Turnovers

These apple turnovers have quickly become a favorite in my home! They are easy to make but in no way, shape, or form, do they look easy. All you need is some good ol’ frozen puff pastry sheets and you will have your dessert ready in no time! They taste great on their own, but […]

Chocolate Mousse Pie

Chocolate is my absolute WEAKNESS. I’ve never been a fan of candy, but chocolate is another story. This chocolate mousse pie is decadent, chocolatey, and isn’t overly sweet because I use dark chocolate in my recipe. And since research shows that eating dark chocolate can be beneficial to your health, consuming this pie is practically […]

Lattice Apple Pie

Who doesn’t love a good ol’ homemade apple pie?? Furthermore, who doesn’t love a PRETTY, homemade, lattice apple pie?? The recipe in itself is very easy…it’s really the lattice design that’s a little harder to tackle. But with a little practice and patience, all will be well in due time, my friend! INGREDIENTS: 2 homemade […]

Raspberry Cheesecake

This recipe was created to help celebrate Cinnamon Toast Crunch’s 30th Birthday. I had the brilliant idea of using the cereal as the crust to my cheesecake, and well…the rest is history! This cheesecake is creamy and not overly sweet, and the slight tang from the raspberry topping gives it the perfect balance of sweet […]

Che Thai (Asian Fruit Cocktail)

  This Asian dessert definitely tops my list of favorites! It’s incredibly easy to make and very refreshing on a warm day. This dessert traditionally uses coconut milk as the base and has shaved ice in it as well, but you can skip all that and still have a tasty little treat on your hands. […]
