Butterfinger Blondies

We can all blame these Butterfinger Blondies on my sister.  She sent me one of those horrid/wonderful Tasty videos a few weeks ago with peanut butter Butterfinger butterscotch blondies and it got my wheels turning.

Moist Chocolate Cake

I almost titled this recipe “a chocolate cake so good it may actually kill you” but I didn’t want to be over dramatic. But seriously.  All I can say is thank God I didn’t discover this during The Great Cake Binge of 2014. We had friends over for my good friend Leina’s birthday and when I… Continue reading Moist Chocolate Cake

Chocolate Almond Braid and Blogging in January

Baking and blogging in January.  The struggle is real, folks. The struggle is real. First off, it starts to get dark here around 2pm.  I’m not a photographer and I don’t have any fancy equipment, so it is imperative that I have natural daylight to get good pictures.  In the summer, I can do this… Continue reading Chocolate Almond Braid and Blogging in January

Festive White Peppermint Fudge

I was recently approached by Brach’s Candy Company and asked to develop a recipe using some of their holiday candies.  Since I use their delicious candies every year around the holidays (starting with their Candy Corn at Halloween) of course, I said “yes!” I was delighted to discover that they make a bag of pre-crushed… Continue reading Festive White Peppermint Fudge
