Chocolate Chip Cookie Brittle

Something else to get addicted to, as if I didn’t have enough already. Thank you Patti for sharing with us and for introducing me to something else that I will now have to keep locked up, after making it. This will be so great to have on hand for all the company that will be … Continue reading

Chocolate Ganache (thank you Ina)

A couple of weeks ago, we had dinner at a sweet friends house. She served all our favorite Southern Dishes, Southern fried chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy and green beans. The great ending to the evening was this amazing chocolate cake, which she had found in her Ina Garten (the Barefoot Contessa) cook book. So, needing … Continue reading

Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

I know I said I would post two healthy recipes before going into desserts, but…I’m thinking that because these have peanut butter in them, that should count for something. After seeing this recipe in my old Paula Deen magazine from 2008, it amazed me that this had slipped by me for 8 years.  Since some … Continue reading

Rodelle Gooey Fudge Brownies

If you are looking for a deep, rich brownie that really steps it up a notch or 5 from box brownies, this is your brownie. I made these the other day for an open house and they were a hit. Of course, the fudge frosting that was swirled on top probably added a couple of … Continue reading

Peanut Butter Mississippi Mud Brownies

Just put a lemon pound cake in the oven and am waiting for the cupcakes that I made with the left over batter.

So while the lemon buttercream frosting sits while the cupcakes finish, … Continue reading

Just finished baking the Mini Sour Cream Pound Cakes and they are delicious. Randy is ready to be the official tester for all her recipes that I will be making. Some days, … Continue reading

Brownie Fudge Pie

Many years ago a sweet friend of mine, Marie Williams gave me a book, Take Big Bites, by Linda Ellerby. It has been one of those books that keeps reminding me that life needs more special moments, more shared memories with loved ones and that we need to always be grateful for each day that we … Continue reading

Chocolate Decadence

Since we have friends coming in from California next week, I have been looking through different recipes to see what I will be making while they are here. This one will be the one to welcome them in Saturday evening. Isn’t it always just the best to walk in and smell chocolate? They will feel … Continue reading

Fudge Spoon Pie

I noticed that I have a new follower on Twitter, Kennbuck Inn and want to say welcome. This dessert would be fabulous served after dinner at any B&B. It is taken from Southern Living Desserts and would be a great ending to any meal. To gooey to slice like a pie, but served as a … Continue reading
