White Chocolate Cheesecake Tart

So let’s see. Right now I’m staring at twelve gallons of paint that I neatly set up against a wall. I’m leaving for a week-long trip tomorrow morning, so coming home to cans scattered all over the place wouldn’t be my idea of a good time! In the last week or two I’ve painted: 2 hallways, 2 bathrooms (one of them twice), my kitchen, dining room, bedroom, and two guest bedrooms. If that wasn’t enough, I also painted a side[Read more]

Easy Sweetheart Blueberry Pies

 It started with a leak in the ceiling. Then the drywall came crashing down and it was determined that we needed a new water heater. Then I spent the next several days patching the hole. Then I got spray texture all over the surrounding walls and needed to paint. Then half of the paint peeled off when I went to remove the painter’s tape. And so on. So, yeah, that’s where I’ve been this past week. 😝 I haven’t had[Read more]

Chocolate Strawberry Fudge Cake

I wish I could take credit for this recipe, but the truth is that I stole it from Betty. Betty Crocker. I don’t even know how it happened—one minute I was Googling light summer dinner recipes, then the next minute I was at the grocery store loading up my cart with chocolate, heavy cream, and strawberries. Crazy how that happens. 😉 But if you’re looking for one more indulgent treat before the official start to summer (or perhaps something to take[Read more]

Strawberry Shortcake Romanoff

It’s getting close to summer, which means my refrigerator is stocked with fresh berries and my smoothie game has been on point. I even planted a couple of strawberry bushes this year, though so far I’ve only harvested about three. You’re going to need a lot more than that to make this adult take on strawberry shortcake, which is layered with soft brown sugar biscuits, juicy marinated strawberries, and sweetened whipped cream. Oh, and did I mention there’s booze in it?  😉   This[Read more]

MANLY Cheese and Herb Beer Bread

I was recently challenged to share a recipe that is not only easy, but manly. And well, what could be more manly than BEER? Nothing. It’s how chest hair is born. What I love about beer bread is that it takes just a handful of ingredients, you can make the dough in one bowl, and it cooks up in no time at all. Just mix and bake. Simple as that. You can also throw in any add ins that strike your[Read more]

Striped Raspberry Lemon Drip Cake

Long time no post! I know, it’s been a while. If you’ve been following along with me lately then you already know that my very generous mother dragged me along to Mexico for some much needed R&R. 🙂 I thought about scheduling a post or two while I was gone, but I had no idea what the wifi would be like or if some disaster would occur. Also, I was extremely busy throwing together this gorgeous cake right before my[Read more]
