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 …

Pecan Bars…

The pecans I got were amazing, so I wanted to bake something that truly highlighted their flavor and texture. I have never made pecan pie, so that was my first thought, but I ended up choosing a …
