Apple Pie Cheesecake Bars

Apple Pie Cheesecake Bar Recipe

With September here, it’s game on with the fall baking and delicious treat making.  Cinnamon and pumpkin and apple, oh my!   I’m pretty sure that there is no baking season that smells better than fall does.  It’s all SO good.  I’ve been on a bit of a cheesecake kick lately, so I decided it was […]

Giant Cookie Recipe

Cookie Pie Recipe

I have a cookie for you. A giant cookie.  A cookie that can be cooked up quickly in a single pan, that can be cut into bars, frosted into a cake or served warm with ice cream?  Sound good? Believe me, it IS good.  And it’s super easy.  I love a good bar style cookie […]

Margarita Cheesecake Pie

Margarita Cheesecake Recipe

I love margaritas.  I love pie.  I love cheesecake.  So I figured that combining the three might be a good idea.  And let me tell you, it most certainly is. What takes this pie totally over the top is the crust.  It’s made of Ritz Crackers.  Buttery, salty, perfection.  It’s the perfect compliment to cream […]

Grasshopper Pie

Grasshopper Pie

I love all of the fun holidays in spring such as Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day.  They are simple days where it’s fun to do something special for the kids.  We don’t do anything big, but little special touches are fun and things that I hope the kids remember when they are older.  For […]

Chocolate And Peppermint Striped Delight

No Bake Chocolate And Peppermint Dessert

I love holiday baking for so many reasons.  It brings family and friends together, it’s often packed full of traditions and special Christmas recipes, it’s a way to share our love of food and people, and it features some of my favorite flavors, such as chocolate and peppermint.  The smell of candy canes and peppermint […]

Easy Eggnog Pie

Eggnog Pie Recipe

My husband loves eggnog.  Or “nog” as he usually refers to it as.  I am pretty sure it’s why I can get him to do the grocery shopping easily in late fall, because he’s stalking the dairy department for eggnog.  Eggnog is take it or leave it for me, it’s more the texture than the […]

Peppermint Crunch Ice Cream Pie

Peppermint Crunch Pie

I can’t wait any longer, I am ready for PEPPERMINT!  Bring on the peppermint and candy canes!   And pie.  Peppermint Pie! Um, yeah, just like that right there – peppermint and chocolate!  While I’m not one for peppermint everything, I am a little obsessed with peppermint ice cream.  I l-o-v-e it.  I squeal with slightly […]

Individual Pumpkin Pies

Individual Pumpkin Pies

Everyone in my house loves pumpkin pie.  It is always a hit, so I actually try to make it throughout the year, and not just for Thanksgiving.   We all agree that pumpkin pie should have lots of spices, be nice and thick, and have be topped off with a dollop of Cool Whip. Every time […]

Gluten Free Pumpkin Pie

Gluten Free Pumpkin PIe

Time to talk pie again, gluten free pumpkin pie to be specific. I have made gluten free pumpkin pies before by simply leaving out the crust.  My daughter went through a massive pumpkin pie phase last year while we had her on a gluten free diet, so I started making pumpkin pie by just putting […]

Chocolate Chip Pecan Pie Bars

Pecan Pie Bars

I love pecans.  Pecan pie is really a thing of beauty.  One of those indulgences that you don’t have often, and savor when you do. It is so rich and decadent and over the top in the very best way.  Because it is so rich, I love making it in bar form, where you can […]
