Lemon Gem Cookies
It’s spring!! It’s been spring for a while here in South Carolina, but I try not to talk about it since they still have snow up in MN where I’m from. For weeks I’ve wondered why none of my neighbors has opened their windows to air out their homes, let in the lovely fresh air and enjoy the breezes and the singing birds. Then one day when I had the windows wide open and fans blowing, too I discovered that an eighth of an inch of pollen covered every surface of my house inside and out and I’ve been blowing my nose non-stop. On principle alone, I refuse to shut the windows and…
Hot Fudge Chocolate Cake
Finally! It’s here! I’ve been promising this cake for what, two, or three weeks now? Gah! You’ll have to forgive me for that. I normally don’t feature a recipe on my blog unless I’ve tested it several times. Unless of course, it’s just that amazing the first time around and I remember to write down all the components and measurements. If not, I make it a second time and get it on the blog as soon as possible. Other recipes take 3 or more attempts to get it just right. This recipe, however just did NOT want to be featured on the blog. Originally this was a Slow Cooker Hot Fudge Cake. Nowhere…
My guacamole isn’t really holy, not in the spiritual sense of the word anyway… It’s just that there are zero catchy recipe titles for guacamole and I felt like spicing things up. The Stud Muffin has really developed a taste for avocados. I wasn’t sure he’d ever eat them after being told countless times that he hated them, he hated guacamole and nothing would change his mind. Until I made guacamole one night and he had it on a taco. BOOM! Yeah, that’s the sound of TSMs mind being blown.
GF Fudgy Brownies
Have you ever taken a bite of something and your brain and your mouth explode from the flavor nirvana that is occurring and you’re rendered speechless and consequently need “A moment alone” to compose yourself? If not, I’m genuinely sad for you. But fret no more because these brownies are slap-yo’-momma, shut the front door, awesomesauce, ohmehgersh, mind-blowing, “where have you been all my life?”, SPECTACULAR! Make these and you will have that moment that I just mentioned above once you take a bite of one of these brownies!! I made the glutenized version a couple of weeks back when I had my good friend Towanda the Bee Charmer over for a movie…
The Stud Muffin Makes Manly Banana Bread
TSM (The Stud Muffin) was in the kitchen this weekend and decided to make some scones (from a mix) and his Manly Banana Bread (not from a mix). Each time he makes this bread he reminds me that he came from a long line of bakers. Keep in mind that not one family member from this long line ever worked in or owned a bakery- they simply just baked their own bread anddesserts.
