Super Soft Sandwich Bread

A low carb diet would help me lose weight, no doubt about it.  But bread is just so good!  I love to eat, I love to make it, I love to just smell it!  Nope, low carb is not the life for me! I don’t always have time to knead and play with dough the…

Apple Pie Bread

My husbands favorite bread. He can put away a whole loaf in one day!

Adaptable Doughnuts

Let’s face it, doughnuts are just awesome.  But everyone has a favorite doughnut and I doubt if there is an entire household on God’s green earth where every person in the house loves the same doughnut!  So when I make doughnuts, I make several different flavors. Now, that may sound like I get up at…

Beautiful Brioche

What better time to try out a long awaited recipe for Brioche than an ‘ice day’?  There is an ice storm on the way and every school and business for over 100 miles in each direction is closed.  Even the base is closed (essential personnel only report to work today – everyone thinks that they…

Brown Butter Buttercream

This buttercream is perfect on just about any cake or cupcake but I especially like it on my Banana Cupcakes. The nuttiness of the brown butter blends perfectly with the bananas! First, prepare the brown butter: 2 1/2 sticks butter 4 to 4 1/2 cups icing sugar (powdered sugar) 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract about…

I have fallen in love. Of course, I fell in love with my adorable husband, Jamie, almost 23 years ago and it has been magical.  But my new love has consumed me.  It’s all I can think about!  I need this new love day and night and in everything I do. My new love is…

Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have always loved chocolate chip cookies – I mean, who doesn’t?  But everyone has their own idea of what ‘perfect’ is when it comes to cookies. I love a chocolate chip cookie that is thick and soft and chewy with plenty of chocolate chips but also enough cakey dough to hold it all together…

Best (EVER) Yellow Cupcakes (HONEST!)

I’m usually known for having yummy fresh baked treats around when people come over.  If someone needs a cake for an occasion, they give me a call.  I’ve tested and tweaked and developed recipes until I am POSITIVE that the flavor and texture of the finished product will be to my liking (and hopefully everyone…

Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Buttercream

The Reece’s commercial says it all.  Chocolate and peanut butter are the PERFECT combination.  I, especially, cannot resist chocolate and peanut butter together.  Whether it is ice cream, a cookie, a cake or just a graham cracker spread with pb and chocolate chips, I’m an addict. Luckily, I am not the only one that loves…

Honey Lemon Icebox Cookies

Chocolate Chip Malted CookiesThis post may contain affiliate links. What’s your favorite type of cookie?  I’m talking about texture.  Do you like thick and cakey?  Soft and chewy?  Thin and crispy?  Everyone has a preference and every cookie has it’s place.  For me, it really depends on the cookie. Since I have one kid that…

Chocolate Chip Malted Cookies

Sometimes I create my own recipes but sometimes I come across a recipe that looks simply perfect.  When I found this recipe in a church cookbook, I thought it would make a PERFECT cookie.  I mean, how can you beat the flavor of malted milk powder and 2 kinds of chocolate chips??  The only thing…
