Strawberry-Blueberry-Rhubarb (or Raspberry) Double Crisp

On a hot summer day few things are as satisfying as a berry crisp topped with vanilla ice cream. Add a cup of fresh coffee and you've got yourself the makings of an excellent afternoon on the back deck, just eating dessert and enjoying life.

I love recipes that can turn even the simplest meal into something special. Take this no-fuss homemade blueberry sauce. It requires only a few minutes to put together and a mere handful of ingredients. When it's done cooking, you can store it in the fridge for up to two weeks and...

Quintuple Chocolate Cookies

Yesterday the munchkin asked if we could make chocolate cookies, and while we didn't have as much semisweet chocolate as our recipe called for, we did have various amounts of all sorts of chocolates. So, after a brief pause, the munchkin asked: 'Why don't we make cookies with all...

We all have a 'go to' recipe that we pull out of our recipe books when someone asks us to bring a dessert for dinner - and the decadent homemade pastry you see here is mine. It's good. Really good. In fact, I only make it when I have a bunch of people to share it with because...

Overnight Cinnamon Buns

Cinnamon buns are one of my favorite morning treats - especially when they're fresh from the oven and the sugary filling is all warm and gooey. But here's my problem: I am nowhere near coordinated (or patient) enough to bake cinnamon buns from scratch in the morning. That's where...

It's hard to describe the sheer awesomeness of this coffee cake, with its beautiful spirals and layers of brown sugar, pecans, walnuts and orange marmalade. But for you, I will try. Imagine the aroma of warm sugar and nuts, think about the sensation of fresh, fluffy bread melting...

Chocolate Toffee Cookies with Toasted Pecans

With just the right amount of sweetness, these cookies have a wonderful chewy texture thanks to a generous amount of semisweet chocolate chips and milk chocolate toffee bits. I pretty much guarantee you won't be able to eat just one.

Mini Pumpkin Scones

There's something pretty cool about rediscovering old recipes with your child. These pumpkin scones are a good example. I first made them way back in 2009 - when I was pregnant with the munchkin. Then I completely forgot about the recipe until this morning, when the munchkin and...

Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

These pumpkin whoopie pies were easy to make with lots of tasks for little hands, like mixing the batter, measuring confectioners sugar and spreading the frosting on the cakes while sneaking tastes of said frosting. The end result was two layers of fluffy, Autumn spiced pumpkin...
