Meyer Lemon Pound Cake

Meyer Lemon Pound Cake is an easy-to-make pound cake recipe from scratch that’s extra flavorful from the addition of a Meyer lemon syrup. This may sound silly, but lemon flavored desserts make me so happy. When the temperatures are below average and Mother Nature is hanging onto winter with a death […]

Traditional Shepherd’s Pie

Traditional Shepherd’s Pie is an Irish dish made with seasoned ground lamb, carrots, potatoes and peas and topped with mashed potatoes. Can you believe it is March already? I’m trying to figure out where in the world the months are going! While this year is definitely flying by, winter is […]

Bulleit Bourbon Orange Crush

The Bulleit Bourbon Orange Crush is my favorite drink. Bourbon is my favorite liquor. This gets me a lot of strange looks. Apparently, “girls don’t like bourbon”. 🙄 Except, I do. I’m not part of that group of women who pretends to like bourbon because it’s popular among men. I’m old, […]

Nutella Swirl Bundt Cake #BundtBakers

Nutella Swirl Bundt Cake – a classic vanilla bundt cake with a hearty swirl of nutella throughout as well as a nutella glaze on top. Confession: when Nutella first became popular enough here that I could find it in the stores, I bought a jar and maybe at ate the […]

Mint Chocolate Cupcakes

Mint Chocolate Cupcakes are super tasty cupcakes, where the cupcake is infused with fresh mint. Then, they’re topped with a rich chocolate buttercream frosting. I love fresh mint. I’ve grown it (or at least tried to) for the past couple of years now. It’s done moderately well, but I think I […]

Italian Love Cake

It’s National Chocolate Cake Day! Of all of the food holidays that exist, this one is pretty high up on my list of ones that I’d like to celebrate. Who doesn’t like chocolate cake? Well, actually, I’m not a huge cake fan. 🤷 I know, I know. Cheesecake: yum. Pie: great. […]

Sausage and Spinach Lasagna

For Christmas my aunt brought over lasagna. Prior to that, I honestly don’t know how long it has been since I’ve had lasagna. A few years at least. 🙄 It’s not that I don’t like it, it’s just the combination of being lactose intolerant and trying to eat less carbs has […]

Honey Oatmeal Bread

Is there anything better than the smell of freshly baked bread? Probably not. I haven’t made bread in ages and the thought of a honey oatmeal bread sounded perfect for a chilly day. Have you ever drizzled honey on bread? I tried this for the first time, thinking a bread […]
