Sour Cream Coffee Cake

You may have noticed that a lot of the recipes I’ve been posting are from cooking light lately. There’s a reason for that. I’m trying to stop indulging my decadent side as much. I mean, I’m all for a stick of butter and a cup of cream, but in moderation and celebration. So I’m trying […]

double chocolate layer cake

So cake number two HAD to be chocolate! I made the variation with the rasberry filling and it was delicious. And the leftovers got better each day. The road to delicious was a little rocky though. First of all I learned never to use all of the batter in pans that are too small. The […]

I figured we could all have some yummy crumb cake before heading to […]

Individual Butter Cakes With Honeyed Pears

Well, really, I just love dessert in general, but this time I will claim that it is just the seasonal dessert that I […]

Individual Chocolate Souffle Cakes

So I am going to encourage you to try something. If you have never made a souffle before because it sounds too scary, try this one. It has very few ingredients, it only makes 2 individual mini souffles, and it’s easy. That’s right. I said a souffle is easy. I have made this so many […]
