Improv Challenge: Cherry Filled Almond Cupcakes

Its Story Time with the Cookaholic Wife! Come grab a comfy piece of carpet or computer chair and let me share this one with you. We need to go back almost three decades to the year 1987. For those of you youngin’s, this is back when MTV actually played music […]

Improv Challenge: Peanut Butter & Jelly Heart Cookies

Peanut butter and jelly. What in the world other than a sandwich am I supposed to make with that? That was my first thought after reading the Improv Challenge ingredients for April. Usually I’m all for thinking outside of the box and trying to create something that no one else […]

Cake Batter Doughnuts

After making the cake batter pudding cookies and the cake batter milkshake, I had a problem. There was still yellow cake mix left over. I know, I know, what a horrible problem to have! However, since I’m assuming everyone else who made a cake batter recipe also ran into this […]

Drunken Cheesecake Brownies

In order to make the Irish Car Bomb Cheesecake Bites for St. Patrick’s Day, I needed to purchase some Bailey’s Irish Cream. Since I only needed a small amount of it, I opted to purchase the 4-pack of Bailey’s mini’s. I barely used one little bottle for that recipe so […]

Improv Challenge: Lemon and Sour Cream Donuts

There’s something about the smell of lemons that makes me happy. I absolutely love to zest or juice lemons because even after washing my hands, that lovely lemon smell remains. I’m really curious as to why the don’t sell lemon scented candles. Or at least any that I’ve found. I’m […]

Secret Recipe Club: Buttermilk Biscuits

I have to admit, with my limited amount of time to spend in the kitchen due to my college classes, I was a bit hesitant to participate in the October Secret Recipe Swap. I’d glad to say that my need to make new recipes won out against my limited amount […]

Fresh Orange Muffins

Last week I had a recipe that called for one orange. Of course when I went to the grocery store they were out of individual oranges and only had bags of them. I ended up not making the recipe and forgetting to add it to the following week. The bag […]

Secret Recipe Club: Croquembouche

Last month was my first time participating in the Secret Recipe Club. I had a great time going through the recipes on the blog I was assigned to choose one so I knew I definitely wanted to participate again. This month, I the blog I was assigned is Eggs, Cream […]
