• Spring Cookie Dough [DO Edible Cookie Dough Copycat Recipe]

      I know there are a lot of cookie dough options here on the blog and all I can say is my hubby is obsessed with cookie dough and I’ve caught the bug. Now don’t get me wrong, I still love a good chocolate brownie or key lime pie, but sometimes you need something simple like cookie dough.   Are you a cookie dough lover or hater? Now before you leave me a comment about how it’s not safe to eat cookie dough, raw eggs, and all of that jazz. Today I’m talking about edible cookie dough. That is cookie dough that is specifically made for eating raw and does not…

  • Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake

    Hi y’all! It’s been a while since we talked but if you were sitting in my kitchen today I’d make you a cup of coffee, serve you a slice of this cheesecake, and catch up on what’s going on in your life. But since we can’t sit down and chat today, here’s a recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake that is a favorite at our house. But first I have to warn you, this cheesecake is indulgent. It all starts with a rich and creamy cheesecake that is filled with cookie dough and chocolate chips. A small slice goes a long way, which means it will last longer or…

  • Cookies and Cream Cookies with White Chocolate Chips

    Y’all, I am so excited to share these cookies with you today! Variations of these Cookies and Cream cookies were all over the internet last year, I saw them on at least 4 different blogs. I knew if that many people were talking about them and loving them that I needed to try them too!     You start with a basic cookie dough batter and sub cream cheese for some of the butter and instant milk powder for some of the flour. These changes make the cookies moist and rich. I’ll admit that I had some reservations about putting store-bought cookies, even though they were Oreos, inside my homemade…

  • Lighter Cranberry Bliss Bars

    Today we have the third recipe for Sam’s Christmas Treats!     These Cranberry Bliss Bars are a new favorite that I now want to make all of the time. Can we talk about how beautiful these bars are for a minute? The creamy white cream cheese frosting is dotted with bright cranberries.     Brown sugar gives the bars lots of flavor and helps to keep them moist. They also have just the slightest bit of spice from the cinnamon and are dotted with sweet white chocolate and chewy cranberries.     Using light cream cheese brings full flavor without all of the calories.     Bake up a…

  • White Chocolate Chip Snickerdoodles

    Today I’m sharing the second recipe for Sam’s Holiday Treats. These White Chocolate Chip Snickerdoodles started with a traditional Snickerdoodle made from the recipe I grew up enjoying every Christmas and then we add the magic ingredient…white chocolate chips and you have our new favorite way to enjoy Snickerdoodles!     Traditionally Snickerdoodles are made with cream of tartar. I don’t know about you, but I never have cream of tartar on hand and I bet you don’t either. So I’ve used baking powder to replace the cream of tartar and baking soda the recipe originally called for.     Soft, chewy, and covered with a tasty cinnamon and sugar mixture. These…

  • Crumb Coffee Cake

      I love a good coffee cake with my coffee on Saturday morning. But there is no need to wait until Saturday morning to enjoy this Crumb Coffee Cake.     The Crumb topping makes this coffee cake a little fancier than the Sour Cream Coffee Cake recipe already on my blog. There is something classic about a Crumb Coffee Cake and this one has the perfect ratio of crumb to cake. The cake is light and fluffy and the crumb topping is full of wonderful things like brown sugar and cinnamon.     Buttermilk makes the cake extra moist and I know I’ve already mentioned it, but just take a look at how…

  • Oatmeal Cake with Caramel Icing

    So I know it’s not quite fall yet, thanks to my hubby for reminding me this week that we still have a couple weeks of summer left. But since I want you to be fully prepared for fall and all of the delicious food that comes with it, today I’m sharing a cake that just screams fall.     This Oatmeal Cake is another recipe from my hubby’s mom. Now don’t let its plain name fool you. This cake is full of flavor and is incredibly moist. I don’t know if mentioning moist just once is convincing enough. This Oatmeal Cake is what a moist cake dreams of being.  The recipe…

  • Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

    I have a confession to make…I like raisins and I love Oatmeal Raisin cookies! I feel like you either love raisins or you hate them and my husband, who is the main taste-tester around our house, doesn’t like them. I guess that’s just more proof that opposites attract.     I’ve been craving Oatmeal Raisin Cookies for months and the raisins that have been sitting in my pantry have been mocking me. I finally had the chance to make some over the weekend and I’m kicking myself for waiting so long. The recipe for these cookies is based off of an Oatmeal Cookies recipe from my husband’s mom. I changed up a few…

  • Salted Caramel Brownie Sundae

    Today we are going to combine two recipes that I have already shared with you for One Bowl Fudgy Brownies and  Salted Caramel Ice Cream and add Salted Caramel Sauce to make a killer Salted Caramel Brownie Sundae. This sundae is a showstopper and will definitely impress your family and friends.     Now the Salted Caramel Sauce is what sends this sundae over the top. It is rich, creamy, and buttery. My mouth is watering just thinking about it! One of the best things about this recipe is that it can be prepared, start to finish, in less than 10 minutes.     I know that homemade caramel can be intimidating, but…
