German Chocolate Cake

For my sister’s baby shower, Lori requested a German Chocolate Cake and I’ve been wanting to take a stab at one for awhile.  Yes it’s easy to get the box mix and the fabulous chocolate pecan frosting, but yeah, I’m not one to settle for simple.  I love layered cakes and I totally wanted to […]

Strawberry Crisp

This is a recipe that stills needs a little work.  The strawberries come out a little too mushy for me, but I totally think it can be done. Ingredients: 4-6 cups quartered or sliced strawberries 2/3 cups quick cooking oats 1/2 cup sugar 1/2 cup bisquick 1/4 cup chocolate chips 1/4 cup butter or margarine […]

White Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are actually not that bad. They still taste like chocolate chip cookies, but they have white chocolate instead of semi-sweet. I did use wheat flour instead of white for a little difference. You really can’t tell it’s wheat flour, but you can tell there is something off about the cookie. It’s not a bad […]

Pizza Sauce

Jesse got in the mood to try making his own pizza sauce and this was the result.  It’s still in the developmental stage, meaning we’re still playing with the spices, but overall this wasn’t bad. Although, I should mention that we haven’t tried this recently.  Basically, I’m moving all of our tried recipes from a […]

Sweet Potato Casserole

Jesse really likes this recipe. It tends to be sweet, almost like a dessert, but doesn’t take away from the sweet potatoes. It is recommended that you use either 1 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup brown sugar or vice versa. Ingredients: 2 large (about 2lbs) sweet potatoes 1 cup sugar 1/2 cup brown sugar […]

Zucchini Bread

Yes, I know I already have a Zucchini Bread recipe, but this one was my grandmother’s so I have to add it.  I loved this recipe growing up, but it was different enough for Jesse which is why we have two on the site. It doesn’t take too many zucchinis to get 2 grated cups […]
