I don’t like regular banana bread – I will disguise it by making banana muffins or I will add chocolate chips to it or anything, really, rather than make plain banana bread. It has bad connections for me and I find it’s always…wet and heavy. Blech! I do like chocolate, though, and I always seem

I needed chocolate. Had to have chocolate. Didn’t want brownies. Didn’t want cookies. Figured I’d give a chocolate cake a try. This is The Pioneer Woman’s recipe. Let me preface my mess up with this: the recipe and instructions are very clear. I had a brain fart. I do not have a sheet cake pan.

My mom used to make these when I lived at home….I don’t remember if they were for special occasions or just because. Knowing my dad’s love of dessert and such, probably both occasions were reason enough to make them. I rarely make the tarts, though. I don’t like making pastry. I now am able to

Ohhh, chocolate, how I love thee! I even like chocolate protein powder and nobody likes that. We had Pho soup for supper, and I figured with all the vegetables, I could squeeze in some kind of chocolate dessert type thing and be okay with it. So, the search was on. By the way, shortly there

I scout recipes all over the internet. I follow creators on Instagram, blogs, anywhere that catches my attention. I am branching out into my own recipes now, but this is not one of them….why mess with perfection? Once upon a time, my mom despaired of me ever learning to cook – I wouldn’t touch raw

In the middle of my house being stupid hot – the new windows keep out some of the heat, but the roof is black and once this place heats up, it doesn’t want to cool off – I decided to bake a loaf of bread. I figured, as I was making the bread dough, that

Once again, I am attempting to use up some of the bananas hiding in my freezer. I moved the ones I had in the fridge freezer to the chest freezer the other day and realized there were a wackload already in the chest freezer. It’s shameful….how those bananas are good one minute and black the

Once upon a time, long ago (depressingly so), before my kids were born, my ex and I would go to his parents’ house for supper and his mom would make this cake mix from a box that you mixed in the baking pan. She mixed the cake then sprinkled a topping over it and then

I made vanilla pudding yesterday – it did not turn out well. It was way too sweet, it was lumpy – it wasn’t compost material but it definitely was not one I was ever going to make again. I was disappointed, to say the least – not that there’s any left (I didn’t eat it

I was gifted a bag of frozen blueberries yesterday, and by last night, I had the fiercest craving for blueberry scones. I’ve only made scones once or twice, it just never occurs to me to make them and when I do, they are very much pastry and I’m somewhat heavy handed with the pastry. 🙁
