Lemon Cupcake

Here it is, the end all, be all of lemon cupcakes. A family in my neck of the woods is adopting an 11-year-old girl from China. International adoptions are out of this world expensive so her friends put together a benefit fundraiser/bake sale for the family, unbeknownst to them. I brought cupcakes and I wanted… Read More


I had a birthday last week. Ugh. Twenty seven. Twenty six still sounds young and fresh, but 27 sounds so grown up and serious. I didn’t even make a birthday cake because I just couldn’t handle it. Eventually I needed some kind of treat so I make cake-cookies. I ate five in one sitting. On… Read More


Samoa Sheet Cake

Right from the get go, I knew this was going to be a good cake. I could hear a choir quietly humming a hallelujah chorus while I made the cake batter. You had to listen carefully, but it was there. The batter just came together beautifully and the bowl was literally licked clean. If I… Read More


Fantasy Fudge

  This is our family’s go-to fudge recipe and it doesn’t disappoint. I have made it so many times, and so many people comment on how much they love it, and then they usually follow it up with, “my fudge never turns out.”. Then I give them this recipe, which pretty much always turns out.… Read More


Tortellini Vegetable Soup

I am a warm weather kind of girl. I love to sit outside and soak up the sun and heat. So maybe that is why as soon as the weather turns “cold” (I’m talking 70s and 60s), I turn to soup to warm me up. I eat soup all fall, winter, and a good part… Read More


Peanut Butter Bars

I love, LOVE peanut butter and chocolate. LOVE. I saw this recipe from I Heart Naptime and knew it would be a great one to try. These were addictive. You can use the pre-bought graham cracker crumbs, or just put whole graham crackers into a gallon-sized ziploc bag and crush the crackers by rolling over them… Read More


Doctored Cake Mix Cake

So I assume a lot of us have seen that same pin on pinterest that tells you how to take a cake mix cake and make it taste like a bakery cake. I think I’ve pinned it at least twice and seen it way more than that. The basic premise of this is that you… Read More


Homemade Taffy

Every July 24th, we celebrate Pioneer Day. As part of that celebration, the past couple of years my kids & I have made our own taffy. Yum! It is actually quite a bit of work (I think it took me 3 hours of working from start to finish with two little helpers), but is fun… Read More


I love, love, love eclairs. They are by far my favorite dessert item. I have always been afraid to make them because they seem so difficult. I found this recipe on pinterest and I thought it was finally time to try making eclairs. There are a lot of steps, but they are so easy to… Read More


Years and years ago when I was probably about 7 or 8, I found this recipe in an LDS children’s magazine called The Friend. And almost a decade and a half later, these are still hands down, the best no bakes. They are so silky smooth, melt in your mouth perfect. Plus its a one… Read More
