Yellow cake! It's our favorite, and we've never been shy about admitting we use box mixes (Duncan Hines anyone??) to make them. They're reliable and easy, and frankly, we like the taste! Recently though, we've been trying out Test Kitchen's Cooking School (yay!) and I've kept coming back to this recipe. I've heard people rave about it and to be honest, I just didn't believe that a homemade yellow cake could be any good. My personal experience is that they are dense and have a slight raw egg taste (gag).Read More
And while I used peaches this time, there are so many different fruits you can use in these, whatever is in season, or whatever you find at the store. They are a lovely addition to any brunch, or an easy "muffin" on the run. Whatever you call them, or how you eat them, they're delicious.Read More
I can't think of many things my family enjoys more than eating dessert (or anything) together. Growing up we were blessed with adventure, and we spent a couple years in Japan before I was a teenager.Read More
My great aunt Hazel is the sweetest person you will ever meet. She's one of my favorite people ever and she makes a pretty darn good pie. Particularly sour cream raisin pie. No one makes it like she does! She's been making it for....well, forever!Read More
So if you hadn't noticed, we have a thing for pie. Our love of pie knows no bounds. ANY pie. Some we like more than others but it'll be a cold day in July when we turn one down.
Our Mom makes the best pies. She whips them out so fast and so perfectly and so effortlessly, she could do it in her sleep.
We love cinnamon rolls. LOVE them. And make them quite often. Maybe a little too often.
They never get old. Truly, a classic recipe.
But come on, who doesn't love a dessert that can pass for "breakfast."
These are so delicious. Really. Buttery and rich and I can't stop eating them. I just decided to leave my fork in the pan instead of dirtying a new one every time I pass by them. I can't help myself!Read More
