Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Chia Bites

If you spend any time on these vast internets searching for recipes (which you probably do since you’re reading this blog), you may have noticed the trend in bite-sized snacks. There are the sweeter types like cake balls/cake pops and cookie dough balls as well as healthier versions like raw energy balls. I’ve been wanting […]

Fresh Strawberry Cake with Cream Cheese Swiss Meringue Buttercream

I am considering this Lucy’s very first birthday cake. Okay, okay.. right now, it’s more for Mama than it is for little Lucy, but I will certainly make it for her again some day. Lucille Naomi joined the world a week ago today; at home, in the water, and much quicker than I expected. But […]

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie

If you’re craving something sweet, rustic and easy to put together, than this cookie will be calling your name. Just looking at this iron skillet reminds me of summers spent at my family’s cabin- but that’s just nostalgia talking, since our typical treats up there were things like oatmeal pies and roasted marshmallows. But I […]

Salted Peppermint Rice Krispie Treats

I really wasn’t planning on sharing more sweets with you, but occasions to bake keep coming up out of nowhere! I made these last night for some friends, and then whipped up another quick batch for the hubs to take to work today.  This recipe took me less than 15 minutes to pull together- talk […]

Sprinkled Chocolate Thumbrint Cookies

Good morning, all! How are your holiday sugar hangovers? Today I’ve got some more sugary treats for you in honor of the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap, hosted by the fabulously talented Lindsay of Love and Olive Oil and Julie of The Little Kitchen. I have had the pleasure of meeting these two darlings in […]

New York-Style Crumb Cake

Good afternoon, earthquake survivors!  Seems like everyone is a little shook up today.  We didn’t feel it down here in GA, but if we had, I would certainly be celebrating survival with this crumb cake. Truthfully, I made this crumb cake about 100 million years ago and forgot to post it.  I found the photos […]

Miss Brenda’s Pound Cake

One of my favorite things about living in Georgia is that Southern hospitality.  Shortly after we arrived in GA, we had the honor of sharing a meal at Miss Brenda’s.  This woman is the sweetest Southern gal you will ever meet!  I just love her laughter and smiles, her love for the Lord and her […]

Pie Fries

Wondering what you’re going to do with your pie dough scraps? Do you even have pie dough scraps?Sometimes I do.  Usually, I just throw them away, but if there’s a ton left over, I’ll make hand pies.  After my pie dough comparison, I had a lot of extra dough and had already made hand pies, […]

Pie Crust Comparison

I have been on a quest to find a great pie dough recipe for quite some time. I keep thinking that maybe if I can find a great recipe, that making pie will be more enjoyable for me.  I still don’t think I’m there.. but the taste testing has been pretty delicious! I chose four […]

Blackberry Galette

Did I tell you my thing about pies?  Here’s my thing. I didn’t used to like pies as a kid, but I do now.  I love to eat them, but I don’t really like to make them.  (I’m more of a cake baker, remember?)  I know pie dough is easy to pull together, but the […]
