Apple Cinnamon Chip Bundt Cake

I bought some gorgeous Granny Smith apples last week and after eating several of them, I knew I wanted to bake a delicious dessert with these scrumptious, tart apples.

Pineapple Zucchini Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

I originally saw this recipe over at the Pioneer Woman’s site and was immediately intrigued because I just so happened to have zucchini in my fridge. Rarely do I post recipes when I make them from her site because she has such a large following and provides step by step instructions with great photos. I …

Wow, one year… one whole year I have been writing this blog! As I sit here typing, I am swaying in my chair and singing the lyrics to the 1990′s jam, “It’s Our Anniversary” by Tony! Toni! Toné! However, I am replacing the word anniversary with blogoversary, because I am cool like that! It’s a …

Hostess Inspired Chocolate Cupcakes

I have seen these cute Hostess inspired cupcakes popping up on Tastespotting and Foodgawker for quite some time, but I successfully withstood the peer pressure to make them until now! Ya see, Bri is a serious cupcake fanatic, and always wants chocolate on chocolate, but being a food blogger I am not really one to …

There is a commercial for a chain restaurant (I don’t remember which one) on television that is featuring a chocolate bundt cake with vanilla ice cream and hot fudge sauce. Let’s just say that this was love at first sight for Bri and he has been hounding me to recreate it since he laid his …

While browsing the gourmet food section of a local store, I came across Starbucks Milk Chocolate Covered Coffee beans. I threw them into my basket with thoughts of mocha goodness on my brain…although I am not a fan of chocolate covered coffee beans; too gritty in my mouth!I figured if I did not use them …

Cinnamon Squares…

This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe for Cinnamon Squares was chosen by Tracey of Tracey’s Culinary Adventures. I love cinnamon, but something about a cinnamon and chocolate combination does not go over well with me. I left the decision up to the boyfriend; he ended up choosing cream cheese frosting over the chocolate from the …

Mini Angel Food Cakes…

Over the weekend, I made a delectable dinner of barbequed baby back ribs with twice baked potatoes and grilled asparagus. I figured this would be plenty of food, but the boyfriend requested a dessert to accompany the feast. I did not want to make anything heavy considering the menu had enough fat and calories to …

Miniature Nutella Cakes…

I was bored this weekend and decided to throw something together that utilized a boxed cake mix. I have quite a few of these in pantry, but they rarely get any love…I just buy them because they’re on sale (it’s a compulsion of sorts). I also had new mini bundt pans that were begging to …
