Spiced Pumpkin Roll Cake

Roll cakes are so fun and impressive to look at, and they’re shockingly easy to make.  I love the pretty swirls of bright white frosting next to the pumpkin cake, and when it tastes even better than it looks- you know you’ve found a great dessert. The cake can be whisked together by hand and …

4th of July Cheesecake Dip

Do you have any big plans for the 4th of July? I’m so looking forward to the long weekend and spending some time outside enjoying the summer weather. I also have a few BBQs lined up and am excited to bring along this delicious no-bake dessert. Cheesecake is one of my favorite desserts, but it …

Strawberry Lemon Cream Pie

I made this Strawberry Lemon Cream Pie for Easter last weekend and it was so wonderful. I’m not sure how any dessert could feel more like spring than this one. The lemon filling is light and creamy with a bright lemon flavor that is pretty much how I would imagine sunshine tasting. Combine that with some …

Blueberry Croissant Puff

If I had to pick a favorite meal to make for family, breakfast would be my pick hands down. When we have big family gatherings the dinners can sometimes get a little stressful. It’s a lot of work to get a holiday dinner on the table and even with my easy going family, I know …

Bacon, Jalapeno & Cheddar Cheese Ball

On any given Saturday afternoon during football season I can usually be found with a big group of friends, gathering to watch our local college football team. The host is a master on the grill, and food is never (ever, ever) in short supply. My knowledge, and to be honest, interest, in football is limited, …

Chocolate Cheesecake

My hypothesis about why Chocolate Cheesecake is so utterly satisfying is because it contains four of the basic tastes: sweet, sour, salt, and bitter.  Sweet comes from the chocolate sandwich cookies and the sugar, sour arrives with the cultured cream cheese and sour cream – bringing an subtly acidic note that balances the sweetness, a …

Holiday Orange-Cranberry Cheese Ball with Sugared Cranberries

I consider cheese balls to be a nearly perfect appetizer. There are so many flavor options, they can be made ahead of time, and they’re easy to eat with your hands as you stand around mingling with guests and finishing the meal preparations. My one pet peeve is when cheese balls don’t have enough mix-ins.  If you’re …

Pineapple Green Pepper Cheese Ball

Growing up my mom was semi-famous for a cheese ball she would make around the holidays. This was a staple at family gatherings and I still look forward to having her prepare it for Christmas dinner. Even though I have her exact recipe, somehow it always tastes just a little better when she makes it. The …

Cream Cheese Pound Cake

“Oh, whoa. This definitely does not suck at all.” While that might not be the kind of recipe review you’d see in a fancy foodie magazine, it’s the kind of feedback I love to get from friends after they take the first bite of something I baked. Judging by the comments I heard the night I served this …

Black Forest Cake Stacks

Fluffy whipped cream filling and sweet fresh cherries sandwiched between tender chocolate cake and dark chocolate ganache in these Black Forest Cake Stacks make for a stunning dessert. The Black Forest Cake Stacks are assembled as individual servings and while they certainly require less decorating than a traditional Black Forest Cake, if you’d like a simplified but equally striking …
