Hawaiian Fluff Cake Topping

Hawaiian Fluff Topping – Let’s dust off the turntables and put on our poodle skirts. We’re taking another trip back in time. Last week we sampled a vintage Chiffon Cake recipe. This week, we’re tasting the topping that all the best hostesses piled on their cakes in the late 1940s and early 1950s.  The recipe comes […]

Original Chiffon Cake Recipe

Original Chiffon Cake Recipe –  You have finally found it! This is the chiffon cake recipe your grandma used to make. I have been on a quest to create a light and fluffy cake made from scratch for months. I wanted something as light as an angel food cake but with more richness. I tried and failed. […]

Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

Chocolate Buttercream Frosting – It’s time for an intervention. I’m saying this as a friend. You need to break up with the canned frosting. Sure it dresses up in that slick package looking like all ready for a night on the town with your favorite cake. However, on the inside — it’s fake. Just turn that tub around and […]

Oreo Ice Cream Sandwiches

Oreo Ice Cream Sandwiches – Have you ever have one of those days where you sent your kid to preschool with two different shoes, forgot your lunch (and your wallet) at home as you ran out the door for work? I know it can’t just be me. Can it? On days like that, there’s no […]

Chocolate Raspberry Sandwich Cookies

Chocolate Raspberry Sandwich Cookies – Two chewy chocolate cookies surround a swirl of creamy raspberry frosting. It’s a perfect way to treat yourself or someone special. The chocolate-raspberry combo seems a bit underrated to me. What do you think? People go gaga for chocolate and peanut butter or chocolate strawberry while this pair sits quietly in the […]

Seven Fun Twists on S’mores; Peanut Butter Cup, Chocolate Chip Cookie, Nutella, and More

S’mores with a Twist – Welcome to my s’more-gasbord! I’m sharing seven fun twists on s’mores. I have experimented with lots of different fillings and a few graham cracker replacements in the classic cook-out dessert. However, I never mess with the marshmallows. You just couldn’t call them s’mores without that crispy on the outside, gooey on the inside, perfect […]

Peanut Butter and Fluff Cookies

Peanut Butter and Fluff Cookies At twelve years old, I swore I had the most difficult life ever. My middle-school-self decided my life was impossibly unfair because my mom often packed peanut butter and jelly for lunch. Never mind that there was more food in my lunch bag than some kids get in an entire day. I was clearly deprived […]

Vanilla Buttercream Frosting

Vanilla Buttercream Frosting – Once you make your own buttercream, you will never want to go back to the preservative-filled canned frosting. This is the best basic buttercream frosting. It takes just five minutes and five ingredients to whip together. Bonus; They’re all real ingredients that you can actually pronounce, no polysorbate or partially hydrogenated vegetable oil […]

Coconut Caramel Truffle Peeps’ Nests

Coconut Caramel Truffle Mini Peeps’ Nests – It’s time to hatch another Peeps Week recipe! This rich chocolate truffle pie has a coconut caramel topping that tastes like Samoa Girl Scout Cookies. The decadent treat is the third of four in the series. We started with Peeps Whipped Cream Frosting then dug into Peeps Truffle Pie. We’ll end the Peeps party with Peeping Bunny […]
