Book Club Treats

I had the pleasure of hosting book club last month and made some fun treats that were gobbled up. My goal was to make simple/quick items that had very few ingredients but still packed a lot of punch in the flavor department. Oh, and I had a very small budget, so the ingredients had to […]

Lemon Yogurt Cake with Blueberry Sauce

I love the idea of an everyday cake. One that’s not frosted or fussy. Simple, elegant and delicious. I think I’ve mentioned before that I am not a cake decorator. I admire those who are, but I don’t have the patience to do it myself. That’s why I love cakes like this, they are still […]

This is what happened to these brownies: They didn’t last an hour. Oh smitten kitchen, stop taunting me with all of your amazing recipes! This is starting to get a little stalker-ish if you ask me. Deb, please don’t put a restraining order on me. I couldn’t help myself on this one. You posted it […]
