I love classic recipes, you just can't go wrong with them. It's why they are still around after hundreds of years. Of course, it's fun to change things up but when it comes to recipes like angel food cake, there's nothing to improve on! It's already so good. That's why I like to mix it up with different toppings...OR different pans.Read More
I love my Crown bundt. It just makes everything so much prettier. Isn't it gorgeous? You just can't go wrong with bundt cake. And this recipe is the best. It tastes wonderful, with or with out the fresh fruit and whip cream. It also tastes good with coffee. I would know since I ate it for breakfast this morning.Read More
In the last few years bacon has really exploded. You see it everywhere, right? Bacon soap, bacon wallpaper, bacon...chapstick?? I find this...really...interesting. I've never known a time that I didn't love bacon but that doesn't exactly mean that I want it on my socks, you know? Well, one thing I do want it on is my plate. Breakfast, lunch dinner etc. etc. It's pretty much good with everything. So why not cinnamon rolls?!
And why not little itty bitty ones...cause mini is always more fun to eat.
Let me just say this: make the cookie dough, buy the Oreos, mix up the brownie batter, whip the buttercream and sprinkle the sprinkles because you can, and it is delicious, and there really is nothing more to say on the matter...Read More
We love baking bread. And baking bread in a cast iron skillet?? Even better! This is one of my favorite recipes, for a lot of reasons. It makes a lot of dough and I can freeze half of it for an easier challah later in the week. It also makes a huge 12in skillet challah, thats big! So we always have leftovers...which means challah french toast the next day. SO GOOD!Read More
A chocolate dream, I don't think there is much to say besides that. This is a simple cake that is easy to whip up. It can be made in a 9x13, if you don't have a bundt pan...but we really like it the bundt pan! Pretty and delicious!Read More
This is a delicious, spring-y spin on our favorite winter pie, cranberry sour cream. You really could throw any kind of fruit in this and I'd wager it would taste pretty good. (...well, most fruits anyway.)Read More
Happy 70th Anniversary to Nordic Ware! In celebration, they have released a trio of beautiful new pans in a gold metallic finish. They are so pretty! You can find out more here. This one here is the Crown Bundt. It's a beauty and a pleasure to bake with as well! I very rarely bake cakes in anything else these days because it seems so...well, boring! If you want the wow factor, buy a Bundt pan!Read More
It's really no secret, we love pie. Okay, wait a minute, I have never loved pie...until recently. Okay, until this week when I was playing around with this recipe and decided I wasn't going to go running after all (I'm trying to get back into shape, and running has always been the way I do that...) and that I was going to taste these hand pies. Usually, I bake something, and take a small taste, to see how it turned out and then trust my kids for the rest.Read More
This is very easy to make. In fact it's so easy I have a hard time even calling it a recipe. I just wanted to make a Valentine's Day cake in my pretty heart-shaped bundt pan and I wanted it to have a vibrant red swirl in the center. But I had so many people asking for the recipe that I decided to go ahead and write a blog post about it. So here I am, about to reveal all my secrets.Read More
