Luscious Lemon Cake

Lemon Cake With Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting

I have been on quite the citrus baking kick lately.  Something about spring (or summer, we are in the mid-90’s in Phoenix!) just calls for the refreshing flavors of citrus.  Lemon is an absolute favorite for me and this Luscious Lemon Cake is both easy and delicious. Not only is the cake lemon, but the […]

Carrot Cake

Carrot Cake Recipe

One of my all time favorite cakes of all time is carrot cake.  It is such an amazing combination of flavors and textures.  For whatever reason, I seem to always save carrot cakes for Easter, and for my family it is an Easter “must have” dessert. I’ve recently partnered with the folks at In The […]

Make Ahead Cinnamon Rolls

Easy Cinnamon Rolls

Disclosure: This post was sponsored by Philadelphia Cream Cheese. All opinions however are mine and mine alone. Cinnamon Rolls have always been a favorite family breakfast on holiday mornings for my family.  I still remember watching my great grandmother roll and knead cinnamon roll dough around the holidays when I was a little girl. I […]

Orange Loaf

Easy Orange Loaf Recipe

Orange Loaf, Lemon Loaf, Lemon Rolls.  Clearly I’ve got citrus on the brain. And on my countertop.  My Dad planted quite a few citrus trees when I was in middle school, and 20+ years later (okay, more than 20, but let’s not count), he always has a LOT of citrus to give away.  And being […]

Lemon Loaf

Iced Lemon Loaf

You know that saying, when life hands you lemons?  Sometimes it’s literal and sometimes it’s figurative.  This week I had an abundance of both kinds.  Life was handing out some and my dad was handing out some.  Thankfully my Dad’s lemons are the actual grow on a tree variety.  And what do you do when […]

Lemon Rolls

Lemon Roll Recipe

It’s no secret that I love cinnamon rolls (and make them often).  Wanting to shake things up a bit, I decided that it would be nice to make Lemon Rolls for a change.  Lemon is such a great flavor for spring, but I’ve never tried it in a breakfast type of food.  Oh my, I […]

Lighter Carrot Cake

Lightened Up Carrot Cake

One of my must make desserts every spring is carrot cake.  I adore carrot cake, and it’s an Easter favorite for us.  Unfortunately, even with all those carrots, carrot cake is not exactly what one could call health food, at least with most recipes.   I’ve always been a big fan of swapping out some of […]

Peanut Butter Brownies

Peanut Butter Chocolate Crunch Brownies

Sometimes you go to the grocery store to get some fresh fruit and eggs.  You don’t need anything else, but you have a lot on your mind.  It wanders, you wander.  The next thing you know you have random ingredients like giant Reese’s Peanut Butter Bars and Chocolate Frosted Flakes (for real) in your cart.   […]

Lightened Up Chocolate Chip Cookies

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Let’s talk cookies.  I love cookies.  I mean, who doesn’t love cookies?  I really love oatmeal cookies, that chewy texture totally works for me.  Now, not oatmeal raisin cookies, just to be clear.  Raisins and I are most certainly not BFFs . Or even friendly to be honest.  I prefer my oatmeal cookies to be […]

Pistachio Coconut Ice Cream

Pistachio Coconut Ice Cream

I know, many of you are still in the middle of snow and ice.  Don’t hate me when I tell you it was in the 80’s here in Phoenix, and I heard the 90’s are in the forecast.  It’s not much consolation, but we’ll totally pay for this weather in a few months.  123 degrees […]
