Hummingbird Cake

Skip the boring banana bread and breathe new life into that overripe fruit with this tropical Hummingbird Cake recipe.  The Caribbean is calling, and this cake is the next best thing! “If you build it, they will come,” has worked exactly (at least) two times in history: once in a Kevin Costner movie and once for the tourism board of Jamaica. It may be hard for those of us who dream of Montego Bay beaches to imagine, but in the 1970s it wasn’t exactly a tourist hotspot. In an attempt to bring more flights and full wallets in from...

Corn Cakes

I love corn cakes. I grew up eating them. My Grandma used to make them all the time. They’re a super easy side dish that you can whip up with a just few ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen. Unfortunately for me, my grandma never wrote down her recipe. So, for the longest time, I’ve been at a loss for how to make them so they taste just like hers! After years of searching and lots of corn cake recipes tested I finally found one that is darn near perfect! These corn cakes are just like the...

Eggnog Crumb Coffee Cake

This is a lovely coffee cake that perfectly embraces the holiday season. The cake it’s self is not overly sweet so the generous crumb topping is the perfect accompaniment. The eggnog flavor is delightful. It’s in no way overpowering but it definitely is the notable flavor. It’s what makes this coffee cake uniquely tempting. The crumb topping and glaze together are seriously crazy delicious!!! Honestly, I could have eaten bowls of this all by itself! This is the last day of my Sugar Rush. I hope you’ve enjoyed it as much as I have! I have some really great casseroles and...

I tried a few of  the other recipes and this one won, hands down, based on flavor and constancy. These are really a “must” for every Christmas cookie plate and Valentine gift for those you especially love! You will be in LOVE with...

S’more Bars

S’mores are one of those iconic foods that make me feel like I’m ten years old, it’s summer and everything is right with the world.  We used to have these every time we’d spend the day at the beach and finish the evening off with a bonfire.  Corona del Mar. Southern California.  My Dad, Mom, and my sisters.  Some of our neighbors.  The perfect sunny Socal beach weather.  The glow of the warm fire as the sun set.  I think what I loved most about these times, honestly, was the pure joy I saw in my Mama’s face as...
