Bailey’s Fudge

This is the best fudge I’ve ever had. It’s creamy, it’s chocolatey, and it has the perfect Irish Cream flavor. Plus it takes five minutes to make! One of the best things about this fudge is its shelf life. It easily keeps for two or three weeks. I make fudge every year for Christmas because…

Andes Creme de Menthe Cookies

Super soft chocolate cookies with Andes Creme de Menthe baking chips These chocolate pillows of mint heaven are easy to bake and so delicious! They’re quite minty even though the only mint in them is the Andes baking chips. I saw a bag on the shelf months ago and grabbed it to play with on…

Chocolate Cinnamon Cake Roll

I love making cake rolls. They’re so fun! This is a great cake recipe to have on half during the holidays. The cinnamon isn’t overpowering but gives it a lovely fall, fireside feeling. Cake rolls are not as hard as you might think. You just bake a sponge cake in a jelly roll pan, flip it…

Dark Chocolate Maple Truffles

These are not just the best truffles I’ve ever made. These are the best truffles I’ve ever had. They’re smooth and creamy and have incredible maple flavor. These would make lovely gifts and would be gorgeous on a holiday cookie plate! I decorated them with edible gold to give them a beautiful sparkle. They’re absolutely amazing…

Peanut Butter Cup No-Bake Cheesecake

Peanut butter lovers, this one’s for you! Chocolate and peanut butter: a match made in dessert heaven. I’ve been on a no-bake cheesecake kick lately since it’s 100 degrees outside and I love dessert but don’t love heating up my kitchen in the summertime. So I made a peanut butter no-bake cheesecake with an Oreo…

Vanilla No-Bake Cheesecake

In the heat of summer, I rarely turn on my oven. I get it from my mother, who cooks very seasonally. I thought everyone cooked this way but I was wrong. It never ceases to amaze me how many Texans will roast a chicken in the dead of summer. Not me! I live in Dallas…

Popsicle Champagne

A summer dessert that’s as easy as it sounds! I don’t know about you, but I don’t like to turn on my oven when it’s over 90 degrees so I get really creative with dessert all summer: minted fruits, strawberries and cream, homemade ice cream, banana splits, milkshakes, etc. After a meal that filling, I figured…

Part of the batter is tinted red and blue and swirled…

Chocolate Lavender Dream Cake

Layers of dark chocolate cake and lavender frosting piled high with blackberries and fresh cherries This is the dreamiest cake you’ll ever have. I came up with this show-stopping cake for A Midsummer Night’s Dream dinner party. I wanted lavender for the “dream” angle since lavender helps you sleep. I did hours and hours and days…

Strawberry Fool

This is one of those dishes that you take a bite of and wonder why the hell you haven’t been making this all along.     Make this when you have really great, juicy strawberries. Just toss a cup of washed and hulled strawberries in a blender with a tablespoon of sugar and fold that…

Captain Marvel Sundae

Strawberry and caramel is an underrated dessert combo. I wanted an all-American dessert for my Captain Marvel dinner party and what’s more American than an ice cream sundae? I chose a blondie as my base, since Carol is a badass blonde superhero. I topped that with strawberry ice cream, caramel sauce, sliced strawberry, and Captain…
