AKA “Dreams Come True Dessert”, these strawberry cheesecake brownies were amazing. I ate more than my fair share of them- they did not survive in the fridge for more than a few days. Continue reading “Strawberry Cheesecake Dream Brownies”
Finally, a coconut cupcake that worked. One that doesn’t have that weird, subtle coconut flavor that makes me go “meh.” This isn’t overwhelming, but it is COCONUT and delicious. Like coconut cream pie!
I have made 4 different recipes for food/treats in the last few days, and they all failed. I even spent 5 hours working on a bread that ended up doughy in the middle. It was all so very, very frustrating, so I gave up on Pinterest recipes and went to the library. I loaded up on cookbooks and food magazines, plus a few health-related ones. I ended up finding an indulgent dessert recipe in my health magazine that I had to try, and it turned out perfectly! Sometimes you have to go back to the basics. Continue reading “Coconut Cupcakes”
I’m going to pretend like it hasn’t been forever, skip all the rambling and excuses for not blogging, and dive right in. These are worth the wait, I promise!
My mom always made cocoa in a big pot on the stove while we went sledding in the backyard (we had the perfect sledding hill). I helped her a few times when I was little, and then started making the recipe in a cup for myself almost every morning. We dipped hot buttered toast in it, which was amazing.

This is Chocolate Twinkie Cake is my birthday cake! I absolutely love it and have been wanting to share it for a long time. Getting pictures of these baked goods of mine is challenging in the dreary winter days (lighting sucks!), so you might have to put up with some poor quality photos right now. My goal is to share more recipes this year, so I’m going to share even the less-than-great photos. The recipes are the highlights, anyways! The recipe for this chocolate Twinkie cake is scribbled in the back page of an old yellow cookbook of my mom’s. I’m not even sure of where she got it, but it called for a chocolate cake mix and a few ingredients for the filling. It was always a family favorite, and I used to request it for my birthday every year!

I made those Blueberry Buttermilk Donuts (which I am STILL hungry for right now) and I knew they wouldn’t be my last. But you know how you love cookies and try different varieties, but mostly you just dream finding the perfect chocolate chip cookies so you make every version of them? That’s my donut quest- I want to try to find that perfect glazed baked donut that tastes like a fried donut. Maybe it’s not possible, but it’s worth a shot. It means I get to try endless kinds of a donut like these ones! They lasted two days, and only because I made other treats.
