  • Pumpkin Butter

    OK… I have a sad story about pumpkin butter.  As I am sure you know by now I am a BIG, BIG pumpkin fan.  One of my most favorite pumpkin treats is pumpkin butter, but when I went to buy some the other day at Trader Joes they were out!  There was none to be found… NONE!! MY Pumpkin Butter Obsession So it all started back 10+ years a go when I was aimlessly wondering through Williams Sonoma one October day.  This very sweet lady came up to me and asked if I would like to try some pumpkin butter.  I mean she had me at the word pumpkin but…

  • Toasted Pecan Bars are the ONLY Bar you need…

    Toasted Pecan Pie Bars are seriously the ONLY bars you ever need to make.  They are loaded with TONS of toasted pecans, a super gooey center and shortbread type crust that will make you smile.  Trust me these need to be on your Holiday dessert table. Toasting is KEY! For me the key to these toasted pecan bars is toasting the pecans.  There is just something so delicious about a toasted nut, in particular pecans.  I love the extra depth of flavor it brings to a dish, especially when they are the star of the show. I toast mine on the stovetop…if you wanted to toast them in the oven…

  • Keto Pumpkin Bread

    Pumpkin anything is my downfall, but a really great pumpkin bread is my MOST FAVORITE fall treat.   Time for Pumpkin, people I love to use pumpkin in baking.  It adds so much moisture to cakes and breads without a lot of extra fats, carbs or calories.  I even add it to my coffee sometimes for a little extra creaminess and something special….my own homemade PSL. For this recipe pumpkin is the star and it helps to create one of the best pumpkin breads I have EVER had. A little extra crunch To add a little something extra to this amazing pumpkin bread I topped it with spiced walnuts.  Yes,…

  • Salted Caramel Banana Pudding

    So I have a secret… bananas are not my favorite.  I don’t like the taste, smell or texture.  I rarely bake with them, I don’t like to be around someone eating them and I NEVER buy them…unless I am making this Salted Caramel Banana Pudding. It is ALL about the pudding The pudding is really what sets this banana pudding apart from other ones.  It is super rich, creamy and decadent.  The secret to this pudding is something you might not expect…it is sweetened condensed milk.  Yes, you read that right, sweetened condensed milk.  It adds that little something extra, that little bit of unexpected. To amp it up even…

  • Strawberry Cobbler

    I found myself in quite the situation yesterday…there were a ton of strawberries in my refrigerator that I had to use..  I had planned on making a strawberry dessert for Easter, but due to some family stuff I didn’t get too.  Now I had to figure out something yummy to make with them. Cobbler is was! Was craving cobbler… As the weather gets warmer, I do live in southeast Texas so we are warming up down here, all I want are fruit desserts and cobbler is always at the top of the list.  Growing up peach cobbler or blackberry cobbler were my favorites but once when I was in college…

  • Salted Caramel Sauce

All for my Mary, Mary… My sweet sis-in-love’s birthday was last week and all she asked for was Salted Caramel Brownies and her favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies (recipe coming soon).    Literally that is all she wanted, it was not all she got but that is all she asked for…I just love that girl. You can do this…. In order to make her brownies extra, extra special I decided to make my favorite Salted Caramel Sauce.  This may sound a little crazy but…
