Super Simple Lemon Icebox Cake

I love making custom cakes for my friends’ birthdays, but sometimes life requires something simpler like a No-Bake Super Simple Lemon Icebox Cake. My good friend’s birthday is this week, and I had elaborate plans for a decorative cake, but I wound up getting sick during the week. Even though I was feeling better over […]


Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bark

Be prepared to surrender yourself to a new addiction when you make this Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bark. Ever since I made the bark last weekend, I’ve been eating it like vitamins. Plus, I’m pretty sure my boyfriend has integrated the bark into all three meals of every day. And yet, I was […]


Double Lemon Cupcakes

It may be snowing and bitterly freezing here in CNY, but I’m still going to act like it’s spring with my Double Lemon Cupcakes. I bet if you could taste the springtime sun, it’d taste like bright, fresh lemon. Okay, the sun wouldn’t taste like anything because you’d torch your tongue and face and entire body […]


Carrot Cake Cupcakes with Whipped Cream Frosting

I may not want to touch a carrot with a 10-foot pole on most days, but when you put it in Carrot Cake Cupcakes with Whipped Cream Frosting, all logic and reason is out the window. I will eat those cupcakes like it’s my job. Cake is generally a good way to get me to […]


Coconut White Chocolate Red Velvet Pizza

When pizza is your favorite food, it only makes sense to find a way to eat it for dessert. I get the best of both worlds with my Coconut White Chocolate Red Velvet Pizza. I’ll admit I can’t inhale as many slices of this rich dessert as I can regular pizza, but that’s because there […]

Glazed Lemon Zucchini & Summer Squash Bread

My first memory of zucchini bread is of when I was a kid living in my old neighboor, and the kind old lady across the street brought me some. Naturally, you don’t tell a kid there’s zucchini in their bread, so I was none the wiser, thinking I was eating some vegetable-less treat. But my […]


Lemon Strawberry Donut Trifle

This Lemon Strawberry Donut Trifle is the result of my impulsive buying. I’ve set a new rule for myself that I only do one grocery trip a week, and the only exception is if I desperately need something. I had to make an exception this week when I ran out of cat food and coffee; certainly, I couldn’t […]
