Double Caramel Pound Cake

Double Caramel Pound Cake

I've made a lot of different kinds of pound cake over the years.  Most have been pretty good.  A few have been amazing and one or two, eh... not so much.  But this recipe for Double Caramel Pound Cake?  Oh my heck!  It's definitely in the amazing category!  The cake is moist and the frosting is delicious. This recipe, found HERE, is definitely a keeper! Our frosting looks different than the frosting on the recipe.  There's was a thin frosting that looked like it was poured over the top.  I … [Continue reading...]

German Chocolate Cake Cookies

German Chocolate Cake Cookies

If you haven't noticed yet, I'm not much of a cake maker.  I love cake, don't get me wrong.  But for some reason it's not something I make very often.  (Unless it's pound cake.  That's a whole different ballgame.)  I think it's because I think I'll end up eating it all myself.  And the fact that it's not something easy, like cookies or bars.  When I take a cake in to work I would need to take in a knife, plates and forks too.  Cookies?  Nothing else required. These German Chocolate Cake Cookies … [Continue reading...]

Back to School Teacher Gift Idea

I have mixed emotions about school starting.  I love the routine and I love my job so I’m happy.  But I also love summer.  Maybe even more than having a routine.  I waffle back and forth.  But my kids are excited for school to start up again.  I’m pretty thankful about that! Working in the […]

Cinnamon Roll French Toast Casserole

Warm cinnamon rolls in the morning are one of my favorite things.  When they’re covered with cream cheese frosting and filled with gooey cinnamon I just can’t help myself.  So when I saw this recipe on Lemon Tree Dwelling I instantly saved it.  We had a family beach trip planned and I knew my family […]

Brownie Magic Bars

Brownie Magic Bars

Do you call them Magic Bars or Seven Layer Bars?  I’m not totally sure what the difference is or if there is one.  I went with Magic Bars because they don’t really have 7 layers so that didn’t seem right.  And Magic Bars?  Well, that just fits.  They are delicious! Anything covered in sweetened condensed […]

DIY Spiral Notebook Makeover

I don’t know about you, but for us, summer is flying by.  It’s almost time for school to start back up and I can honestly say, I’m not ready.  I’m not ready for the early alarm clocks, helping with homework and, well, going back to work.  I like having the summers to enjoy my kids […]

Paula Deen’s Gooey Chocolate Chip Butter Bars

Paula Deen's Chocolate Chip Gooey Butter Bars

  When I was growing up my step-mom was a horrible cook.  I’m not exaggerating at all on this one.  It was pretty bad.  Everything was over cooked or bland.  She did have two things she made that were good – hamburger gravy and what she called “Gooey Bars”.  When I went away to college […]

Campfire Chicken and Broccoli Pockets

Campfire Chicken and Brocolli Pockets

This is one of those recipes that you can make at home in your oven and is delicious.  Or you can make this outside over a campfire and it’s to die for.  Doesn’t all food taste better when your camping?  I think so.  Case in point – I’d never eat a hotdog at home.  But […]
