Banana Pudding Trifle

Hey…um…hey guys. Remember me? I know. I’ve been gone forever! It’s been a remarkable journey. I pissed off the edge of the wall, I slept in a sky cell, I fought with the hill tribes! So many adventures. So much to be thankful for. Okay, that was actually Tyrion Lannister. But if you’re not in Game of Thrones mode right now, what is wrong with you? In actuality, I’ve been super busy redecorating our house! The good news is that[Read more]

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]

No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

Here it is, guys. My first recipe of 2017. Peanut. Butter. Pie. Or as I like to call it, “the reason why I already broke my New Years resolution.” 😛    Look dude, you can’t really blame me for this. I wanted to make a peanut butter dessert all summer long but talked myself out of it because summer is supposed to be “light” and “airy” and incorporate a buttload of berries. Well, it’s winter now. And my thighs want[Read more]

Quick Gingerbread Nutella Truffles

Hello friends! How is everyone’s week going so far? This is going to be a quick-ish post because I need to do some prep baking for tomorrow. We’re having our little annual Christmas party with our neighbors and I want to try and slay with a show stopping dessert. Except I’ve never made the thing I’m planning to make and this is probably a horrible time to attempt it. You know me. 😛 Other than stockings my favorite part of Christmas[Read more]

Almond and Amaretto Cookie Chocolate Fudge

Hello lovelies! The other day I was browsing the sweets aisle of my local grocery store when I found the cutest little amaretto flavored cookies. Given the fact that I can’t even pronounce the name of them, I figure they must be the real deal! The brand is Matilde Vicenzi, and the cookies are called “Amarettino D’Italia: Ricetta Tradizionale Italiana.” Quite the mouthful. Fancy, right? But don’t worry if you can’t find the brand; the recipe I’m about to show you will[Read more]

No Bake Chocolate Tiramisu Tart

I got my first tart pan a little over a year ago. Fluted edges, removable bottom, the whole nine yards. But being the risk-taker that I am, I decided to break from the pack and get a rectangular pan rather than your standard 9-inch round. Complicating things even further, my pan is 11×7 rather than your standard 14×5. This means that I can find pretty much zero recipes that take my tart pan size into consideration. While I love the[Read more]
