For Valentine’s Day, I was going to make a post about diabetic-friendly brownies, but the first batch tasted like crap, so I decided to take a bit more time to perfect the recipe (or at least make them taste less like sweetened dirt and more like actual chocolate baked goods). Fortunately for everyone involved, these

Back in the Christmas post, I made a brief mention of wine cakes, and I showed the recipe in my little slideshow. Well, if you looked at the recipe, you might have noticed that it was a little… well, cryptic. After a few calls to my mom and a little bit of trial and error,

This is a recipe I’ve actually been sitting on for some time now. I first made it probably three years ago, then I put my recipe away, thought about it a few times over the years, and didn’t actually bother making it again until now. Oh. My. God. Why did I wait?? Not only are

The days surrounding Independence Day (for any country) are always a good time to do some delving into your nation’s history. For me, as an American, I’ve done my fair share of reading on periods of war from the 1700s through to current times. A period that holds a lot of personal interest for me

Lemon is one of my favorite flavors to work with when it comes to baking. I’m happy working with any fruit, but there’s something about lemons that just makes everything so much brighter and happier. My love for lemon poppyseed pastries has been going strong since I was a little girl, and now that I’m

My mom posted to my Facebook recipe page hinting in a not-so-subtle way that she wanted me to make her this banana split cake. As far as refrigerator cakes go, it seemed like an easy enough job, so I hitched a ride to the grocery store and stocked up on supplies. Walmart is a great
