• Banana Pudding Cheesecake

    Banana Pudding Cheesecake… yes you read that right, I am using banana’s in one of of my recipes. Let’s talk Nilla Wafer… I am all about a Nilla wafer.  Anytime I have a box of them in the house it disappears quickly.  I also love turning them into crust, and for this cheesecake they are the perfect crust option.  I mean you have to have Nilla Wafers with banana pudding… right? Banana’s are a must… I guess It is no secret I am not a fan of bananas AT ALL.  I don’t buy them, eat them, cook with them… nothing ever.  So when a sweet friend of mine asked me…

  • Pumpkin Espresso Bundt

    Pumpkin + Espresso makes me a happy girl.  And yes, I know it is only September but in my world it is pumpkin time.  I mean honestly it is pumpkin time all the time to me but I can at least now post it and it seem somewhat “normal”. Pumpkin, please I love pumpkin anything and everything, and I can eat pumpkin anytime, especially this bundt cake.  The pumpkin makes the bundt cake super moist without making it heavy and then with the addition of the pumpkin pie spice gives it just the right amount of warmth in each bite. If you didn’t want to use the pumpkin pie spice you…

  • Pumpkin-Butter Buttercream

    The Holidays call for 2 things in my book… pumpkin and buttercream. One of my favorite pumpkin treats is Trader Joes Pumpkin Butter.  It is a little sweet with a little spice making it AMAZING!   When you add it to this buttercream recipe it is AMAZING! Not your normal filling I love a good sandwich cookie with a  good filling.   I love the richness and creaminess it brings to anything and everything you add it to.  Most of the time buttercream is used on cakes and cupcakes, but this time I used it as the filling for my new favorite cookie.  Yes cookie my Spiced Molasses Sandwich Cookies.

  • Celebration Fudge Cake

    A few weeks ago I took a little time away to my happy place.  We fished, hung out and celebrated the 4th with some sweet friends and family.  The fishing was the reason we were there but one of the major highlights was this cake.  From the minute my godmother mentioned she “might” make it I stalked her until it was made…and it was so worth the wait (she made me wait 48 hours). A little confession… This is not the original cake my Godmother made.  That cake was consumed at our 4th of July party before i could get pictures, so I HAD to remake it once I got…
