Classic Blueberry Cake

Classic Blueberry Cake

Granny’s summery blueberry cake recipe is short and sweet. Prep time is short. And the cake itself is sweet. It is easy to make and even easier to eat. I would serve it for brunch with coffee, or for dessert topped with whipped cream and […]

Coconut Tarts

Coconut Tarts

I know that coconut is one of those flavors that, for the most part, people either love or hate. I am very much in the love category. So when I came across Granny’s recipe for coconut tarts, I snatched it right up. Which, as it […]

Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies

Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies

A few weeks ago my intern was in town for several days which was quite the Godsend. Not only did she help me in the early mornings with my early risers but she also helped me whip up some recipes for the blog. Not the […]

Banana Sugar Cookies

Banana Sugar Cookies

I accidentally invented this recipe for banana sugar cookies and I am so excited to finally share it. One Christmas, I made Granny a few batches of cookies. She said that she loved them and shared them with her friends. But she couldn’t share the […]

Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake

Chocolate Strawberry Tart

This Chocolate Strawberry Tart is bittersweet for me. Not the actual flavor, mind you – that is pure sweetness. But the memory of this recipe is bittersweet. I have a very vivid memory of visiting Granny one summer and she was so excited to make […]

Ambrosia Salad

Ambrosia Salad

The first time I had Ambrosia salad was at an all-you-can-eat buffet with Granny. It was probably an early bird special kind of buffet. And, I’m wondering why people make jokes about these early bird buffets. All the food you want, including dessert, before 6 […]

Lightning Cake Cake Pops and a Mailman Themed Birthday Party

Lightning Cake Cake Pops and a Mailman Themed Birthday Party

Making cake pops was never on my bucket list. Nor was throwing a mailman themed birthday party, but I can now kick the bucket a little happier knowing I have done and loved both. When Silas asked for a mailman party, I had no idea […]

Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Adults always thought Granny’s Pineapple Upside Down Cake was a dessert of elegance and taste. But we kids were on the other side of that opinion. A cake with the crispy edges and no creamy frosting just didn’t make sense. We are not even sure […]
