Chocolate Banana Pudding

For some reason I associate chocolate with love and romance. Maybe because I’m such a chocolate-lover, and am always overjoyed to receive gifts of the chocolate-kind. Anyway, for this Valentine’s Day I’m making some chocolate pudding for my puddin’. Your SO will love this creamy, luscious dessert topped with crushed pistachios or fresh sliced strawberries….

Peanut Butter Fudge

Funfetti Cake

What’s a Saturday without a little FUN? Growing up, funfetti cake was a cake that I always helped bake because it was a recipe in my “cookbook for kids”.

A to Z Cake

I haven’t baked in a while, so I had a desire to bake something delicious and easy for a special end-of-summer treat. I decided to use the zucchini in my fridge to make a really moist cake (with an added health bonus), and add body to the batter and sweetness using applesauce. This cake is…

Ooey Gooey Brownies

I think brownies might be my favorite dessert. I have always preferred chocolate-y over fruity flavors, and a brownie is the perfect somewhere between cookie and cake – moist and gooey, yet substantial and more celebratory than a regular-ol’ cookie.
