Cinnamon pull-apart bread

What better to do than make some fresh delicious bread while you are home with a sick child. I remember seeing this recipe a while ago and it seemed the perfect treat for sick little Gattor. It’s a rather simple recipe, no copious amounts of kneading, you simply cut it up and then bake it. …

Cinnamon Donut Muffins

These muffins have been on my to-do list for a while, they look so delicious. They are super simple to make, literally 10 minutes and they are in the oven. My daughter thought they were fabulous, which is not surprising. They are dense like a muffin but the texture with the cinnamon sugar reminds me…

Bakers Coconut

The idea to create my own coconut for baking never really occurred to me, but after reading how easy and tasty it was on the Cupcake Project I knew I had to try it. She is also responsible for me making my own Oreo cookies and well, that certainly turned out awesome. The key to…

Chocolate Caramel Coconut Pecan Cupcakes

First off let me please apologize for the photos, it was 11pm and I have yet to invest in some lighting, so unfortunately they have a terrible yellow cast to them. On top of that I completely spaced cutting one in half so you could see the inside. With that out-of-the-way… For my friend Jane’s birthday I…

Oprah’s Lemon Drop Martini

  This has been one of my favorite drinks for years now. It its sweet and refreshing and the addition of mint really adds something. You cannot necessarily taste the mint but in my opinion it’s what makes this drink for me, well that and the sugared rim. 🙂 If you can score some fresh lemons from…

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes

What more can you say, these are remarkable. These cupcakes have been on my to do list for a long time. I finally had an excuse to make them today for a birthday party. They were fabulous, one of the few times where I think everyone at the party had two. I was concerned at first…

Where oh where did January go

Here we are at the end of the month already and I have yet to post anything. Rather pathetic on my part. I such high hopes and good plans for January. I even got a fabulous new camera for Christmas. Then after taking lots of pictures on the wrong format I found I cannot download…

The countdown begins…

With the Holidays speeding towards us like a freight train, getting all the baked goods done in time to give out is a challenge. I tried my hardest to stay organized and spread out the work over a week but I still ran out of time to do everything I intended. I am happy with…

Golden Caramels

  Right now everyone is making caramels and there are more recipes on the web than ever before. The majorities are for salted caramels, they are the current trend but for me these caramels are the bomb, nothing compares. I will warn you, they are not for the faint of heart; it’s a two hour long commitment…

Whew, now that Thanksgiving is over…

make yourself a batch of these. I don’t know too many people who don’t find comfort and joy in a chocolate chip cookie. I realized for whatever reason this weekend that I have never made chocolate chip cookies with my daughter. She has helped me with lots of other things but never cookies. I can remember so…

Chocolate cupcakes with Salted peanut caramel.

I came upon a recipe for some peanut butter cookies topped with a salted peanut caramel and I could not get it out of my head. But as usual, I had to find a way to put this in a cupcake, since I had to bring some to a housewarming party. Not too difficult of…
