Boston Creme Mini Tarts

Have you ever been sucked into the bakery section of a grocery store?  When you go into a good one, it’s like being stuck in a black hole of desserts that you don’t want to escape from without at least a souvenir from your traumatic experience.  The mini tarts are included in some of these stores,Read More


The day I made these cookies was also the day I realized it was time to start enforcing a little privacy from my 4 year old.  Remember the days of taking an uninterrupted shower for longer than five minutes?  I found myself locking the door after my daughter became curious with questions.  Now I’ve become a skilledRead More

Oreo Delight

The original recipe for this particular dessert is my Oreo Trifle that I put together a long time ago.  Since then, it’s been a huge hit…but I also wanted to create an easier recipe using the same ingredients as the trifle, only it’s more like a pie.  So, you could say this is the sisterRead More

I love mini tarts…they’re just so cute.  They’re finger sized foods, similar to cookies, but they’re pretty, cute, and delicious.  Did I mention they’re cute?  I’ve had several types of mini tarts over the years, and decided to make some super chocolatey tarts at home.  Just for the heck of it, because that’s just whatRead More

Chocolate Marshmallow Bars

This year for my birthday, my sister-in-law got me a dessert recipe book.  It’s Taste of Home, and a huge collection of recipes that other people have submitted over the years.  It was actually somewhat comical when I was going through the book and marking the recipes I wanted to make with the little stickyRead More
