Chocolate-Hazelnut Blondies

Just received the new Paula Deen magazine and finally took time to sit and look through it. Am thrilled that I had Randy pick up a jar of Nutella a couple of weeks ago, for “just in case”. Well, “just in case” is here. Thanks again Paula for giving us a new way to use … Continue reading

Banana Cupcakes

This recipe is a repost from years ago. Each time it is served everyone comments about the moistness and lightness of the bread. From time to time I make it into a 9×13 cake or cupcakes and add chocolate frosting or cream cheese frosting. Because the kids are coming over tonight, I choose chocolate and … Continue reading

Pioneer Woman Chocolate Sheet Cake

Trying to figure out what I wanted to take to Super Bowl party, Randy ask me to make the Texas Chocolate Sheet cake. A couple of years ago, when I was looking on line for the recipe (yes, I was too lazy to go looking through all my cookbooks) I came across the Pioneer Woman’s … Continue reading

Yesterday was the magic day of discovering this delicious cake. I stood at the dessert table at church and ate 3 pieces. As I was standing there trying to figure out how to put another piece of this on my plate without anyone seeing me, I looked behind me to see 3 ladies asking if … Continue reading

Almond & Apricot Biscotti

Have made this twice and each time, it gets great reviews from folks I share it with. Makes great hostess gifts or place in a decorated vase at each end of the dessert table. Great little dessert especially for people who don’t like a lot of sweets, but like just a little something to go … Continue reading

Pumpkin Coffee Cake

A sweet friend who lives across the street brought some of this amazing coffee cake over Monday night. I wish I would not have scarfed it down before taking a picture, but as soon as we ate one bite…well, lets just say that we didn’t wait until after dinner to eat the whole plate she … Continue reading
