One Bowl Chocolate Cake!

Hello, friends! I thought it was about time that I post my go-to chocolate cake recipe. In all honesty, you can find this recipe all over the internet in one form or another. I’ve seen it on the Hershey’s website, on allrecipes.com, and a couple of other places with slight variations. As a matter of fact, one of my first blog posts was a review of Add a Pinch’s chocolate “Best Chocolate Cake Ever”, which as it turns out is also this recipe.[Read more]

Blue Ombre Birthday Drip Cake

Happy Monday, everyone! I’ve been sitting on this birthday cake for my neighbor for over a month. Can you believe it? Poor December babies always get the shaft. It could have been worse though—I could have made her a Christmas cake.   This beautiful baby blue and pink cake features ombre-style stripes, fudgy looking white chocolate drip, and homemade chocolate shards in fun shapes.    If you remember, a while back I made this Fairy Galaxy Drip Cake and attempted to color the[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]

Chocolate Cinnamon Crinkle Cookies

We’re almost there. Can you believe it? I’m feeling a bit like the violinist on the Titanic right now since I’m still baking baking baking while I’m sure everyone else has moved on and started panicking about other things.  But what is Christmas without your classic crinkle cookie? They are a must! And I refuse to piss off Santa Claus by not including them on this blog. They’re fast, easy, beautiful, and ridiculously tasty.    I love a classic chocolate cookie,[Read more]

Maine Needhams

My mother emailed me the other day and was like, “You need to make your Great Grandmother Roy’s Needhams. They’re a Maine tradition!” My first thought was, “Whaaaaat?” But then she stipulated not to use Russet potatoes and I was like, “Oh, right” because I remembered her baking fail from years earlier. 😛 Needhams!   What are these beautifully shiny candies, you ask? Well, they are essentially homemade Mounds bars. Sweet, flaky coconut dipped in your chocolate of choice. I was never[Read more]

One Bowl Mexican Chocolate Cake

I have a friend who has been telling me to make a Mexican chocolate cake forever. People don’t take their friends’ advice often enough, wouldn’t you agree? I sat on this one for quite a while, mainly because I already have a recipe for a cinnamon-infused chocolate mud cake in my recipe box. But let’s get real here—it’s not really the same. Mud cakes are wonderfully dense like brownies, while this one is light, fluffy, and remarkably similar in texture to Add a Pinch’s Best[Read more]
