White Chocolate Blondies

Mother’s favorite is the theme this month for the Fill the Cookie Jar group. My selection is one of my favorites and one that I don’t bake very often….


Peach Custard Kuchen

A couple of months ago I pulled my mom’s old steamer trunk from the closet. It had been years since I’d gone through it and I knew it would be a trip down memory lane. I came across pictures the kids made in grade school, tassels from their graduation caps and lots of books. Early…


Peaches Syracuse and a Save

During my stint as Desserts Editor at Bellaonline we played the dessert name game in the forum. There was a popular game a while back where you took the name of your first pet and added it to the name of the street where you live and that would be your stage name (That’s my…


Espresso Chocolate Chip Frozen Yogurt

I wanted to do at least one more frozen treat as a part of #IceCreamForOXO. This is only the second time I’ve made frozen yogurt and with all the decadent offerings I’ve been serving up, this was timely in more ways than one. I’ll explain more about that soon. As per the name of the…

Blueberry Cream Cheese Pound Cake w/Strawberry Ice Cream

Ice Cream Sandwich Cake

Mr. Sweet Sensations always says he doesn’t care much for sweets. Given the fact that I’ve been baking and decorating cakes for almost 28 years and now blog about baking that’s a pretty tall statement. That being said he is my biggest fan and will try anything I make as long as it doesn’t contain…


Turkey Day Sweets

And just like that Thanksgiving 2012 has come and gone. We kept it pretty low key, and I didn’t cook nearly as much as I did last year. It was still more than we needed but oh well. One of the best parts of the holiday weekend was that I was lazy as a lima…


White Chocolate Mousse Shots and BCA

There’s something about the end of October that always leaves me scrambling to catch up with the calendar. I didn’t want to sit here like a bump on a log and not having anything to post for the October observances so I managed to put something together. I promise I didn’t overdo it! I made…
