Biscuit Donuts

I remember as a child…watching my precious Mama as she stood at the stove cooking these sweet biscuit donuts.  A paper towel lined plate and a brown lunch bags were close at hand.  The ingredients inside held different varieties of sweetness.  Powdered sugar, my favorite,  cinnamon and sugar, and plain ole granulated sugar could be found inside.

Strawberry Angel Cake w/Blueberry Compote

Happy 4th of July!  Do you have amazing plans?  We are going to the splash park on the beach, with dear friends to watch the sunrise, play, and eat.  We are hoping to get there, have fun and snack, before the rush comes later in the day.  Perhaps, we will see fireworks on the Inter Coastal Waterway at night.  Whatever your plans, I hope you have a wonderful day celebrating with family and dear friends, making memories that last a lifetime.

My Red, White and Blueberry dessert for tomorrow!

Cheesecake Swirled Brownie Pie

This is sooo good!  You will love it...everyone will love it!  It's an easy way to impress your family or guests.  It travels well and is perfect for BBQ's, picnics and potluck suppers...making extra, of course.

I was looking at Christy Jordan's Southern Plate blog (don't you just love her?!) and saw her Triple Chocolate Brownie Pie.  I wanted it!  I needed it!  It looked so good!  It reminded me of the Brownie Pecan Pie I make.  I decided to make another brownie pie, this time in a pie crust.  I used the American Neufchatel Cheese I made for the cheesecake part of this pie.  Enjoy!

The Best Banana Pudding

Oh...you are going to love this Banana Pudding!  It is sooo good!  Being Southern, I was just about raised on 'Nana Puddin'!  I betcha it was most likely one of  my very first foods.  My precious Mama made it just about every week.  I know~we were lucky!   No matter the time of year, you could always find  ‘Nana Puddin’ at every get together.  Seems everyone had a different way to make it and it was all GOOD!!!  I don't think you can mess up Banana Pudding, can you?   :)   I hope Y'all enjoy this.  Please excuse me now as I get a bowl and spoon and curl up on the couch to reminisce of days gone by and eat a Southern Family Classic.

Very Chocolate Brownies

I made these for my son to share with his class for his birthday.  They are very chocolaty and moist and a Hit!  I adapted this recipe from an old clip I found for Baker’s One Bowl Brownies.

Mini Apple Cinnamon Roll Pies

You are going to love these little pies!  I just know you are!   My hubby could have eaten all of them if I hadn't taken them away so my boys could have one, also.  You can make these in mini pie pans, use mini pie presses or cut and crimp.

Lime Pineapple Jello Salad

My precious Mama would always make this congealed salad, especially holidays.  We all loved it and now my family does, too.  The only difference?  I don't wait for special occasions to make and enjoy. 

I noticed this looked a little thin and commented about it to hubby.  He told it may be because he ate about half of it, still in the bowl, while I was getting the boys ready for bed!  ~smile~

Dark Chocolate Coca Cola Cake From A Cake Mix

Two ingredients, well three if you add chips, nuts or marshmallows, in this moist and wonderful dark chocolate cake!  The icing, you can make as much and as thick, as you wish.
I made a lot of icing to pour over the hot cake so it ended up as a rich, very moist and almost like a pudding cake.  Gooey and decadent.  Eat it warm or cold, my preference, out of the refrigerator.  But, do, keep it in the fridge.  Grab a fork and spoon and dig in!

Vanilla Cherry Pie Bars

I found out that cake and pie filling make a wonderful fast dessert!  Numerous recipes have been around for a gazillion years doing this.  Where have I been?  I'm just glad I finally decided to make this!  Get that box of cake mix out along with the can of pie filling and make these yummy pie bars.   I've added vanilla chips as an option.  They are good, however, there was too much vanilla for me.  If you love vanilla, then, by all means, add the chips!.  Here is your slice, right out of the oven.  ~smile~

Honey Biscuit Cinnamon Rolls

These are easy to fix even for a school day morning.  I made them this morning for my boys and still have plenty of time to do what I always do.  You know,  the things that were supposed to be done last night that were not for some unknown reason.  Kind of like “the dog ate my homework” kind of thing.  Get up and get moving! It's time to make a special breakfast for you little ones and big ones alike.

Lemon Sour Cream Pound Cake

I made my Sour Cream Pound Cake lemony for Easter and it turned out wonderful, or so says my family.  ~smile~  I was going to use real lemons but didn't have enough to use in the cake and the glaze, and went with extract instead, which worked out great.  Next time I'll plan ahead and be certain to have more lemons on hand.  Happy Easter and many Blessing to you and yours.  I hope you enjoy the day, and this cake, with those dear to you.

Frozen Banana Chocolate Eclair Dessert

A frozen delight made from an old recipe.  This is what happened the other day when I made it in the morning.  I forgot a middle layer and left it in the freezer.  YUM!

Lego Gummies For My Twins Birthday

My boys are turning 6!  Where does the time go?  I have no idea.  It's bittersweet .. I miss the cuddles of newborn babes in my arms.  Giving thanks for the many blessing in my life, these two little miracles and their older brother.  I wonder what the precious little faces looking up at me will become...anxious to see my boys grow and revel in the strength they show in all aspects.  They are becoming wonderful young boys as I treasure each day and tuck away the precious memories of them year by year.

I wanted to make these two special boys something +LEGO  for their birthday celebration.

Cara Cara Orange Coffee Cake

If you have never tried Cara Cara Orange Coffee Cake, or any orange coffee cake for that matter, you need to!  It really is amazing!  Hubby thinks so, too.  I cut a piece to take a picture later, put it aside and went about cleaning the mess I made in the kitchen.  I am a messy one!  When the kitchen was clean,  I went to take the picture of my perfect little piece of Cara Cara Orange Coffee Cake and it was gone!  Geez, I thought after hubby ate three pieces, this piece would be safe.  No!  He ate it!  Hence, the photo below is not the perfect piece I wanted to take a picture of.  I had to take a picture in a hurry and hope for the best.  This is it in all its glory.  From now on, if I want to take a picture of something I'll snap away or I'll hide it!  Enjoy!

Cherry Cobbler

I finally bought cherries today.  YAY, Me!  I just love cherries but really don't like getting the pits out of them.  But...I do what I have to do and get stains on my fingers, my  clothes, well, just about anything that gets in my way.  That's just the way things work for me and I'm good with it.  One of the twins even has stains on his face and tummy but hey, if you're enjoying your food...show it!

We usually just sit down and eat all of them at one time.  Red everywhere...MMMM, that's good.  ~smile~  This time I was determined to make something out of them before they were gone and everyone, and thing, was red.  I decided to make a cobbler and so glad I did.  I cooked it in the toaster oven, and your times may very well vary from the time it took me.  It was at least 10 forevers getting it to brown, for goodness sake!  Oh, so, worth it though.  If anyone has a great way, or even a good way, to pit cherries PLEASE let me know.  I also need to know how to get the stain off my poor ole fingers, They will be bluish purple for quite awhile I suppose.  Are y'all ready to make cobbler?  It's a great one!  It's thin, so double it if you want a big ole bite of it!  By the way, you can use any fruit you wish and it will taste just as wonderful.  Here you go, Sweeties....


Cherry Cobbler

1/2 cup butter, or margarine
1/2 cup sugar, depending on how sweet your cherries are
2 cups, or more, halved fresh cherries, enough to at least cover the bottom of the pan
1 cup self rising flour
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup coconut milk, vanilla flavored, or regular milk
(I had left over coconut milk and it worked out great)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
In an 8x8 pan put butter, sugar and cherries  Heat until the butter and sugar is melted. 
*Throw it in the oven while it is preheating being careful the sugar doesn't burn.  Or, melt on a burner*
Stir flour and sugar together.
Mix in milk until smooth. 
Pour evenly over fruit.
Bake in preheat 350 degrees F oven for 40-50 minutes.  
Until the top is golden brown and a little, tiny bit hard on top.  
Eat it hot out of the oven or room temperature.  Top with vanilla ice while still warm.  MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM, that is so Good!  
Enjoy! <3 and hugs Sweetums!

Dark Chocolate Cake

As always in our house, nobody can agree on what kind dessert, or anything for that matter, they want.  I did as I usually do and combine different ingredients of their requested food.  It tends to make a happy dessert for everyone.  I saw a recipe on the back of Hershey's Dark Cocoa..here is their recipe for Deep Dark Cake.  I adapted this recipe from theirs.  This cake is very moist and really does not need anything to top it.   The icing is great though.  We added it to cut pieces, each person topping their own.  I did find that this cake wasn't as thick as I wanted it so I made another cake that is reduced fat.  It turned out a little thicker.  I'll be sharing that one very soon.   I am making another one tonight cake tonight in an 8x8" pan and will let you know how it turns out.  <3 and hugs!
