Recipe Review: Oreo Cheesecake from Handle the Heat

Original Recipe from Handle the Heat I got a springform pan for my wedding last year, and I hadn't had a chance to use it yet, so my brilliant plan was to make a cheesecake for myself and my husband, without realizing just how big a ten-inch springform pan is. Note: if you're going to … Continue reading Recipe Review: Oreo Cheesecake from Handle the Heat

Recipe Review: Best Chocolate Cupcakes from Handle the Heat

I went to visit my friend for her birthday back in March, and decided I wanted to take her something fancy (since we hadn't seen each other since my wedding in November), and I didn't want to make a cake (I'm not great at cake), but figured that cupcakes would be amazing since they're smaller, … Continue reading Recipe Review: Best Chocolate Cupcakes from Handle the Heat

Recipe Review: Mrs. Deyonker’s Almond Cream Puffs

Since I wasn't able to have a regular bridal shower this past year, I had a drive-through kitchen shower hosted by some of my mother-in-law's oldest friends, and THIS is a recipe from that kitchen shower. She even gave me a double boiler so I could make the recipe the "right" way! Steven and I … Continue reading Recipe Review: Mrs. Deyonker’s Almond Cream Puffs

Recipe Review: Chocolate Depression Cake

Original Recipe from Here. I recently moved, and as part of that move, I decided I wasn't going to buy any groceries, thus forcing myself to eat everything in my cabinet and get rid of some food. Brilliant idea in theory, right? Unfortunately for me, that meant I didn't have any eggs one night when … Continue reading Recipe Review: Chocolate Depression Cake

Recipe Review: Cinnamon Cream Cheese Rollups

Original Recipe from Kylee Cooks. This is a recipe that I've made several times over. It's very simple, with only six ingredients and a prep time of maybe 5 minutes, 10 minutes tops.

Recipe Review: Grandma’s Chocolate Chip Pound Cake

I'm back with another family recipe! This time, it's from my grandmother and her ever-increasing collection of church cookbooks. This cake really defines summer for me. We only saw my grandma during the summer, and she usually had this chocolate chip pound cake ready and waiting for us when we walked through the door, sometimes … Continue reading Recipe Review: Grandma’s Chocolate Chip Pound Cake

Recipe Review: Mom’s Coconut Cream Pie

Hey again! You remember last week, when I treated you to my mom's lasagna recipe? I'm going to up the ante this time with her recipe for coconut cream pie. (It probably came out of one of my grandma's church cookbooks, honestly, but mom's got it memorized so I'm accrediting it to her.) You won't … Continue reading Recipe Review: Mom’s Coconut Cream Pie

Recipe Review: Double Chocolate Frozen Fudge Pops

Original Recipe from AllRecipes. A few weeks ago, I was digging through the cabinets in my apartment looking for something (probably a spice), and came across a set of popsicle molds way in the back of the top shelf of the corner cabinet. Naturally, I pulled them out and set them on the counter. They've … Continue reading Recipe Review: Double Chocolate Frozen Fudge Pops
