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]

Good afternoon, friends! Today I have for you a quick and easy treat that is sure to make your significant other randy, if you know what I mean. 😉 If you’re a Pinterest addict like me then you may already be familiar with what is affectionately known as “Christmas Crack.” This version is just as addicting, but it’s been given a makeover specifically for Valentine’s Day. 🙂 Just imagine it, if you will: A saltine cracker base, topped with warm homemade toffee,[Read more]

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]

Soft and Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

How is everyone doing this wonderful Wednesday morning? Are you glad to be halfway through the week? Today is a particularly exciting day for me because apparently a cold front is supposed to move through this evening! I’ll tell you, that’s been one of the weirdest things to get used to in Texas. The temperature change is sometimes so fast and so drastic that you can actually feel it happening. It could be 70 degrees outside and suddenly a gust of[Read more]
