• Mary’s Flourless Chocolate Cake

    Flourless Chocolate Cake is a must in my family and this recipe is the only one I use now. It started with a flourless birthday party… This past year my sis-in-love found out that she feels best when she does not consume gluten.  Now I am not going to lie this kinda freaked me out when it all first happened, but eventually I decided to embrace it.  My first challenge was finding a delicious, decadent cake for her family birthday dinner and that is when I started working on a recipe for a Flourless Chocolate Cake. After several tries and several taste tests we finally found the RIGHT recipe… and…

  • 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…

OK…I know it is ONLY August 20th but I am SO READY for everything Fall.  I am ready for cooler weather, sweaters, booties and Pumpkin Spice anything and everything.   Pumpkin & Chocolate…Together?

  • 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…

Let them eat cake Like I mentioned before I woke up craving cake one morning last week but I didn’t want a heavy cake like this Chocolate Sheet Cake or this delicious Pound Cake.  I wanted a lighter cake, something perfect for summer.   As I was thinking about what I wanted to make I decided…

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 could use just cinnamon, making it a little more year round friendly. Yes you read…

  • Cinco de Mayo all weekend long

    Cinco de Mayo is technically May 5th, but in my world it lasts all weekend long.  It starts with nachos and margaritas and ends with a flan cake or brownies with more margaritas in the middle.   Yes…and maybe a few more margaritas! Just a sample of what is on our menu… ” order_by=”sortorder” order_direction=”ASC” returns=”included” maximum_entity_count=”500″]There will be a little something for everyone this weekend.  We will have a little heat, a little sweet and of course a little cheese.  It will be a weekend to remember for sure!!

  • a flourless cake like no other…

    Spring is coming and it is time to start thinking about fun desserts and this Flourless Chocolate Cake is a must make!! No Flour Needed I have always been a big fan of flourless chocolate cakes, anytime it is on a menu I will order it (unless there is something caramel) but I have never made one at home.  With Spring coming it is the perfect time to make this super decadent treat.   Now I know there are more traditional desserts for Spring like carrot cake,  cupcakes, or maybe a fruit option, but for me it is all about chocolate (with a little kick).
