Let’s Spoon Together This Valentine’s Day


Disclosure: I received free product samples for review purposes. All experiences and opinions are my own. Yours may differ.   Ever since my trip to Austria, I'm rather picky about my gelato. It is my experience that it is really hard to create delicious gelato if you aren't in Austria (even my gelato in Italy wasn't very good, shocker!) So I was excited but skeptical to try the new Breyers Gelato Indulgences. After taking a couple pictures of the packages, I got out the ice cream … [Read more...]

Hot Fudge Pudding

One of my most favorite desserts is Hot Fudge Pudding Cake! This is a very tasty dessert, but it is also a very tricky dessert. This dessert starts off with the cake on the bottom and the pudding mixture on the top, but after baking it switches places! Very tricky!

Past Recipe Recurrence

Every once in a while, we each stumble across a great recipe that we promise to continue creating until perfection for countless days. However, as soon as a new treat comes along, we stick the old one into a box and rarely look back. A few weeks ago, I was reminded of a delicious recipe that returned to my life through a newspaper sidebar. My children remembered this delicious strawberry pretzel dessert and insisted that I make it again. Having not created this dish for several years, my family … [Read more...]
