Chocolate Pudding Surprise

July 18, 2016 in Chilled Desserts - 1 Comment

When my grandmother passed away years ago, I was given her recipe box.  To say I was honored was an understatement.  She was the best cook and baker I knew, and instilled in me a love of baking.  I was rummaging through her recipe box and came upon a recipe that my…

Raspberry Truffle Brownie Bars

July 14, 2016 in bars - 5 Comments

We went on a short camping trip this past weekend, albeit the weather was windy and a bit drizzly.  For me, camping is a time to relax, be with family, and eat a bunch of junk food we normally don’t eat.  In fact, I take the kids with me to…

Kitchen Sink Cookies

June 16, 2016 in cookies - No Comments

The older my kids get, the more they notice things.  Here’s just a few things that have been asked of me of late: “Why do I have to eat my vegetables before I can have dessert if Daddy doesn’t have to?” “Mommy, go faster! You need to go faster than the speed…

Chocolate Chip Cookies

My family and I just came back from camping–in 90 degree weather.  In the Pacific Northwest, we usually see temperatures this high late in July or early in August, and it normally lasts about a week.  Well, the heat spell here started towards the end of June and lasted almost 3…

Chocolate Revel Bars

Chocolate Cream Pie

September 10, 2012 in pies - No Comments

I know they say that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, (thanks Marilyn Monroe!), but for me, diamonds come a close second to chocolate being my best friend.  I wish I craved vegetables instead; it would certainly help out my waistline.  But, sadly, my sweet tooth has taken over any…

S’mores Brownies

May 31, 2012 in brownies - 3 Comments

I hope you had a great Memorial Weekend.  My family and I went to the beach for a long, extended weekend and got back home later Tuesday night.  For those of you who have been to the Oregon beach, you know that the weather is not predictable.  For example, on Monday the…

Peanut Butter Bars

March 29, 2012 in Chilled Desserts - 2 Comments

Each year in my Easter basket, my parents would put in these delicious peanut butter Easter eggs.  There were only a few, and I desperately tried to make them last, but I always ate them first because they were my favorite.  (Yeah, saving the best for last is over-rated.)  I even…
