Honey Lemon Apple Pie

Apple pie – the one and only all American pie. I feel like everyone expects to eat apple pie on Fourth of July, am I right? So, with Fourth of July coming up in just a few days, I am sharing a take on a classic with you today. This […]

Birthday Snack Cake

This is the only cake you’ll ever need for literally any occasion. I’m calling it the Birthday Snack Cake because it’s a classic white cake with chocolate frosting and rainbow sprinkles – which is a quintessential birthday cake flavor. But, this classic cake is made a 9 x 9-inch baking […]

homemade chocolate pudding

From Scratch Chocolate Pudding

This recipe was too good not to share immediately! Usually I’m a couple months out from what I’m creating versus what I’m sharing. I have to be in order to stay on top of things! But, I recently made some French macarons for a friend, so I had quite a […]

How to Make Homemade Lemonade

With the first day of summer coming up in just a couple days, I thought I would share a post on how to make homemade lemonade. For me lemonade is a nostalgic drink that was only served in the summertime. Growing up in the Midwest, and it being pretty cold […]

Vegan Toasted Coconut Brownies

I have been making this Vegan Toasted Coconut Brownie recipe for many, many years now. It was one that I made frequently at my bake shop, and it’s still a favorite of mine. It’s no surprise because these brownies are chocolate and coconut – which is my all time favorite […]

mahi mahi fish tacos on a plate with tortilla chips

Mahi Mahi Street Tacos

I love tacos. And probably more than the average person because I just didn’t think I liked them for the first 25 years of my life, yes, this all true. I’m from the Midwest, and my mom made hardshell tacos with beef, taco seasoning, sour cream, lettuce, and cheese. I […]
