Hi friends! I don’t know about you, but I’m constantly looking for “tried and true” recipes from a “mere mortal” like me on the internet. I often find myself not getting the purpose of equipment like “induction burners”, not understanding what techniques like “suvee” mean, or missing ingredients from my pantry like “bitters”. If you often find yourself in the same boat, then this blog is for you! Enjoy a collection of our favorites below.

Hello Dolly Bars

I love a simple, delicious dessert that you can make and bake in less than thirty minutes. Recipes like this are good to have in your back pocket! I baked these with the intention of sending them off to work with my husband, but they ended up being too yummy to part with. Ingredients 2…Continue reading »

Pumpkin Vanilla Chai Cupcakes

It’s Fall y’all! (Ok, I know that was cheesy). I was really feeling the fall spirit this weekend and decided to make 2 different Fall treats: an old favorite and these yummy cupcakes. My old favorite is this bread from Baking with Josh & Ange. It is always moist, yummy, and easy! The only edit…Continue reading »

Peanut Butter Cheesecake Bars

To celebrate the first day of September and the transition to fall, I thought these Peanut Butter Cheesecake Bars would be appropriate! I love these because they’re a little non traditional but super easy to whip up! Ingredients 1/2 of a 1 lb pack of Nutter Butters, crushed 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted 1 block…Continue reading »

Orange Sweet Rolls

I’m beyond excited to write this post because I finally broke my unlucky streak with homemade dough!! Which says a lot considering I’ve been crying in the kitchen over my failed dough before. I’m going to try to document everything I did very well so next time I make dough I can come back to…Continue reading »

Vanilla Cake with Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

Believe it or not, this is the very first time I’ve made this cake combination. To be honest, I don’t even remember the last time I made a vanilla cake. But I wanted to go back to the basics this week! Vanilla Cake Ingredients 1 box vanilla cake mix 1 box vanilla pudding 3 tbsps…Continue reading »

Red, White, and Blue Trifle

Happy day after the 4th of July! If you’re like us, you’re enjoying a low-key day at home recovering from the weekend festivities. However, this weekend, I made this beautiful patriotic trifle for dinner at a friend’s house. Honestly, it was the perfect 4th of July (or 5th of July) treat. Honestly, you could bring…Continue reading »

Peach Butter

Baking in the summer and fall just feels different to me. It is something I look forward to most about each season. I love incorporating seasonal flavors, so naturally I was inclined to use peaches! I came across a recipe for Peach Butter and I knew I had to try it. Imagine this as Apple…Continue reading »

Oreo Pie

Happy Sunday! I just love summer weekends. For us, this weekend was full of hanging out with friends and attending our first live sporting event in months! Now, I’m cuddling on the couch with my pup – life is good. We were planning to host some friends at our house on Saturday night, so I…Continue reading »

Chocolate Cream Pie

My dad requested Chocolate Cream Pie for Father’s Day. I usually don’t like to make things for the first time for someone else. I need a trial run. Especially pies that have to set right!!!! But I didn’t want to try this one first and then end up with two pies, so I just decided…Continue reading »

Chocolate Chip Cookie Bread

Hi friends – Happy Sunday! The “Sunday scaries” are real tonight as I start to shift my mind to work tomorrow after being at the beach all week. It was such a great week of family, games, and rest, which makes it hard to go back to reality. However, as with all good vacations, Dylan…Continue reading »

Banana Pudding

My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary by grabbing dinner at the place that catered our wedding. My husband has always raved about their banana pudding, but I had never tried it, and to be honest, I wasn’t dying to try it either because I’m not too crazy about banana pudding. One bite in…Continue reading »

Orange Creamsicle Cupcakes

Y’all. These cupcakes turned out so good. I made an orange creamsicle cake last year and it just wasn’t orangey enough. This year I decided to just bite the bullet and invest in orange extract. I’m glad I did- these cupcakes have the perfect flavor! Ingredients Cake 1 white box cake 1 3 oz package…Continue reading »

Root Beer Float Popsicles

I bought a popsicle mold last week on a whim and I’m already thinking up all the different flavors I want to try! This week was Root Beer float- which surprisingly I’m not a huge fan of in the first place (don’t get me wrong though I’ve never turned down ice cream in my life)….Continue reading »

Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake

I finally made this cake that I’ve been seeing online for over a year. It has two ingredients that I’ve always wanted to try out- mayonnaise and coffee. Mayonnaise is supposed to make the cake extra moist as well as deepen the chocolate flavor, and coffee is supposed to do the latter, as well. I…Continue reading »
