Official Royal Anzac Biscuit Recipe

I knew ANZAC (Australian New Zealand Army Corps) Day was coming up and since I’ve never had Anzac Biscuits, I couldn’t resist giving THE royal recipe a go. If this ANZAC Biscuit version was good enough for Queen Elizabeth, Princess Diana, Prince William & Harry then they are certainly good enough for me. People Magazine ran […]

Moravian Sugar Cake

Happy National Coffee Cake Day! I recently learned about Moravian Sugar Cake and started searching online for a recipe to try. After an extensive search, I saw this recipe on a fellow foodie”s site (Online Pastry Chef) and I knew that it was the one I needed to try. According to Cooks Country, Moravian Sugar […]

Caramel Cake

Happy National Caramel Day! April 5th is a fun day around our house. Not only is it national caramel day but it’s also my birthday so it’s the perfect occasion for a caramel cake. I chose to make the Easy Caramel Cake from America’s Test Kitchen. Trust me … It did not disappoint. Next time […]

Chocolate Guinness Cake

I’ve never really been much into beer but I have heard that Guinness pairs well with chocolate so I thought I’d give it a go. I have to say that I really liked this cake as it was so different from the types of things that I usually make; however, the hubs was less than […]

Whole Wheat Roasted Banana Bread

Happy National Banana Bread Day! As much as I love banana bread, I really don’t make it that often. Bananas are high in carbs and it’s a pretty ubiquitous snack that can be found on almost any street corner. However, I tripped across this recipe with whole roasted bananas and I just had to give […]

Bittersweet Chocolate Blondies with Walnuts (Lower Carb)

Today is National Bittersweet Chocolate Day & January 22 is National Blonde Brownie Day so I thought I would have a little fun and combine the two. Now that the holidays are over, it’s back to counting carbs and tweaking recipes until the cows come home. I wouldn’t necessarily call this a low carb blondie […]

Citrus Scented Shortbread

Shortbread is one of my favorite things to bake and eat, so when I saw that National Shortbread Day was coming around I knew that I had to get in the kitchen and get busy. Shortbread origins go back for centuries and the basic recipe is only butter, flour and sugar in a pretty specific […]

Cranberry Coconut Jumbles (made two ways)

I saw this recipe on The Salt and I was immediately intrigued. Cranberry & coconut together? Sounded awful but I couldn’t get them out of my mind. I just had to make them so that I could see just how bad they would be (weird, I know). The flavor combo was so odd sounding to me […]

Sour Cream Coffee Cake (Zingerman’s Copycat)

Have you every heard of (or had) a Zingerman’s Sourcream Coffeecake? This legendary coffee cake is one of their best selling products and has been a holiday tradition in our house for many years, always having one for Thanksgiving and one for Christmas. It’s also a popular gift that I’ve given many times and my […]

Whole Wheat Apple Raisin Bread

My husband loves raisin bread and I love to bake so with November being National Raisin Bread Month, I knew that I just had to make some. Unfortunately, 2013 has been a tumultuous year for me and my family with lots of crazy, outrageous moments so I’ve not had as much time to bake as […]

Monday Muster and Oatmeal Cookies

Monday Muster’s are short, sweet and to the point. If you’ve never seen my Monday Muster feature, it’s just like a typical roundup post. In fact, every dictionary and thesaurus has a different word choice for muster but they all are in the same range as assemble, gather, collect, come together, round up, etc. Hence, […]

Monday Muster and Gingersnaps (minus the ginger)

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a proper Monday Muster so I’m happy to get back into a regular blogging schedule. Monday Muster’s are short, sweet and to the point. If you’ve never seen my Monday Muster feature, it’s just like a typical roundup post. In fact, every dictionary and thesaurus has a different word […]

Effortless Pecan Sandies

Last week was Pecan Sandy Day. I had planned to share these with you at that time; however, life got in the way and I’m running a little late. I suppose I could always wait until the next Pecan Sandy Day but that would be torture for all of us. Since I’m temporarily living in […]

Espresso Brownie Cookies

In passing, I have mentioned Giada’s Brownie cookies many times and spoken of my attempts to add some nutritional value to these; however, I now must accept defeat. I have made these cookies too many times to count and have tried every flour and low carb trick I know but to no avail. These cookies […]

Applesauce Cake

June 6 is National Applesauce Cake Day so Happy National Applesauce Cake Day … By the way, I’m also celebrating another great occasion. I’m finally out of the hotel and into an apartment with an oven so baking has resumed!!!  Now granted, it’s a teeny tiny apartment that is way smaller than I need but […]

Lighter Carrot Cake

With Easter just around the corner, my mind automatically jumps to spring, re-birth, new beginnings, pastels, chocolate & carrot cake. In our house, carrot cake is a favorite and apparently not something to be messed around with. Let me explain … Hubby and I really enjoy carrot cake but I’ve only made it a few […]

Vanilla Snack Cake

I prefer baking over cooking, any day of the week, so I’m always on the lookout for fun, fast treats that aren’t too unhealthy. I already have a Simple, Lower Carb Chocolate Cake and a Simple, Lower Carb Yellow Cake but a plain white cake has eluded me for months. I have tried low carb […]

Monday Muster & Oatmeal Cookies

Happy Oatmeal Cookie Day … I really enjoy Monday’s and the Monday Muster feature. Seems I always have so much to share but most of it just doesn’t merit its own blog post. It’s kind of like turning to a friend and sharing your mishaps or thumbs up moments. Short & Sweet … That’s what you usually […]

Blarney Stone Cookies

With St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner, I’ve got green & Irish on the brain. Okay, okay … green is my favorite color so it’s on my brain all year round but Irish is in full swing for me, right now. I just love how significant holidays and cultural events are to our food […]
