Cosmic Brownies

Rich, fudgy Brownies topped with a wonderfully thick, chocoate ganache frosting. These are an amazing homemade copycat version of Little Debbies Cosmic Brownies!   Take a trip down memory lane with me: you are in elementary school, sitting in a big cafeteria. In front of you sits your lunch box, decorated with whatever cartoon character you happened to be in to at the time. As you open the box, you see a sandwich, an apple, maybe a bag of chips, and – yes! – a delicious little treat. You may see a different treat than me in that box,...

Sopes

Make it better with masa this Cinco de Mayo, and try your hand at Sopes. They’re a traditional snack or street food in Mexico, loaded with tasty toppings that will leave you yearning for some mariachi music and a margarita! As someone who’s obsessed with food and loves to experiment with different flavor combinations, I’m a big fan of restaurants’ “build-your-own” concept:  your own pizza, your own stir fry, or your own ice cream sundae. It’s also something you can easily replicate at home (like one of my favorites, taco night :-)) and satisfy the different tastes of family...

Strawberry Shortcake Cake

Guaranteed to produce sweet dreams, this cake-inspired twist on strawberry shortcake nestles succulent strawberries between layers of a delicate buttermilk-infused cake and perfectly whipped cream.

As a foodie, though, there are so many other special days on the calendar that justify cooking, and baking, and recipe experimenting! There’s practically a national month or day for all your favorite treats: National Chocolate Mousse Day in April, National Hot...

Scalloped Corn

This old fashioned Scalloped Corn is a delicious side dish that will make you feel like you’re sitting right back at Grandma’s Sunday supper table! Golden corn cradled in a rich homemade custard with just the right amount of smokey bacon topped with a crunchy bread crumb topping! Okay. So maybe it’s just me. But, I think there’s a whole world of side dishes that are just as delicious, if not even a lot more delicious frankly, as the main course. You know what I mean? Is it just me??? Help me friends! Those dishes that you crave and...

Beef and Noodles

Beef and Noodles is the ultimate comfort food! This is an old family recipe that will take you right back to your Grandma’s kitchen table! Sometimes simple, humble, old fashioned food is the best. I love making old fashioned recipes for my family– the kind that ooze nostalgia; the kind that Grandma absolutely, positively used to make. I put lots of those recipes up on this blog: American Goulash, Vegetable Beef Soup, Crockpot Beef Stew, and Southern Style Grren Beans . These recipes have stuck around and been passed down from generation to generation. They’re classic, and have long since...
