White Chocolate Red Velvet Cake

Red Velvet is a staple in my family. My bonus daughter is highly addicted–and by addicted I mean she could eat an entire cake in a day if you let her. One of my nephews also loves Red Velvet but he prefers his Red Velvet sans the cream cheese frosting. I know, I know. It’s…

Pecan Cinnamon Rolls

I found another use for all those pecans! I needed a quick dish to bring to my small group bible study. Pecans to the rescue! I found a recipe online and totally botched it. It was late when I was making these and once I put them in the oven I realized I completely screwed…

Coconut Almond Tres Leches Cake

It’s almost Cinco de Mayo! In America we celebrate this holiday as if it is our own celebration. It’s so fun to have tacos and margaritas and chips and guac and everything else that comes along with Cinco de Mayo celebrations. But last night I came across a video on Facebook that made me stop…

Vegan Avocado Cinnamon Muffins

One day my husband came home with a sack of avocados. And by sack, I legit mean sack. He put them on the counter and said, “I know how much you love avocado.” He was right. I do love avocado–so much. But all you avocado lovers know that it’s a tough life dealing with avocados….

Honey-Spice Poached Pears in Almond Pudding

I am a sucker for anything light and creamy and sweet of course. I asked my husband to pick up some fruit from the store one day and he came home with a sack full of pears. I’m typically more of a strawberry, grapes & kiwi type of girl, but my honey was onto something…

Strawberry Cupcakes with Strawberry Filling

We wear pink on Wednesdays, but we eat pink cupcakes WHENEVER we want! If you know where the first half of that line comes from, you are fine with me. If you don’t, well I guess you’re still fine 😉 I’ve been in love with the color pink my entire life. So when I get…

Blueberry Cobbler

So one of my good friends has a friend who’s family owns a farm in Michigan. Thank God for good friends! Lucky for me, this guy drives to Michigan every summer during blueberry season to bring back farm fresh blueberries to his friends (and his friends’ friends). First of all these blueberries are amazing by…

Cozy Brown Sugar Apple Sauce

Happy New Year folks!! I know I didn’t post on the first day of 2016, and I was torn over whether to post or not to post. I decided not to in exchange for spending time with my husband and my kids and some of our friends. But that doesn’t take away from my love…

Fried Sweet Potato Pumpkin Pie

It’s September and everyone who is anyone (and even the nobodies) are putting a pumpkin spin on their menu. Pumpkin is plastered across just about every screen in America. I didn’t grow up on pumpkin though. And I mean no harm when I say this, but in my house pumpkin was always for “white people.”…

Basil White Chocolate Chip Cookies

On a recent visit to Florida my brothers and my cousin and I decided we needed some beach time. Even though I can’t swim a lick, I am in love with being at the beach so I had no objections to getting picked up from the airport and hitting the road for the 45 minute…
