Cheesecake in bars + another favorite

I need this Chocolate Pie…NOW

I think I could eat pie everyday, given the opportunity.  I love a good creamy filling topped with more yumminess all wrapped in a flaky crust.  Doesn’t it just sound so good?  Well, if you love pie too you have to try this Chocolate Cream Pie…it is a must make …

Easy Peasy Pie Crust

Do you make your own pie crust?  Did you just look at me (thru the computer) like I am a crazy person?  I know, I know, why make your own crust when you can buy it?  Well, the short answer is…it is so much better and its easy!! It’s easy? YES!! …

a S’more isn’t just for camping…

S’mores are a favorite of mine.  I love the combo of graham crackers, chocolate and marshmallows…it is summer in a  bite. NO campfire needed… One of the hardest parts of having s’more is they are traditionally cooked over a campfire, or at least a flame of some sort, but the beauty of these …

Peanut butter cookies are a must make for the summer (at least in my family).  The Hubby loves them, the Dad loves them and my Mammaw loves them.   A good peanut butter cookie to me is soft in the center, crispy on the edges and dusted with sugar giving …

caramel makes me happy

I LOVE caramel anything really.  I love it in my coffee, I love it on ice cream, I love it swirled into cakes and I especially love it with brownies.  Over time I have made a couple of caramel brownie recipes (like this one)  but this new recipe is The Hubby’s …

I love Oreo cookies.  At any given time you can find at least 1 package in my pantry…right now I have the original variety and the new S’more variety.   PS… the s’more options is so, so good, especially for the summer. As much as I love the Oreo cookie …

My mom’s birthday was not too long ago and we had a big family dinner to celebrate her.  My brother and sis-in-law grilled out my mom’s favorites (ribs) and I was responsible for dessert and a side (the side recipe will come soon).  For the dessert I asked her what …
