Gooey Cranberry Orange Skillet Cookie

It's the perfect time of year for all things gooey and decadent. I've been testing out lots of deliciously sweet things lately, and my friends and family are loving the recipe testing right now! The recipe for this Gooey Cranberry Orange Skillet Cookie started off with white chocolate chunks. But after doing some testing, I found that chocolate chips were preferred ...

Apple Pie Skillet Cake

This time of year is perfection with the last of of season ripe tomatoes, and the fall fruit in full swing! I like having vine-ripened tomatoes and apples in the same week - it gives you the sense of having your cake and eating it too. (Although I'll have to say, I'm definitely hoarding the last of my garden tomatoes.) And...speaking ...

Grain Free Pecan Pie Bars

Pecan Pie Bars are a longstanding Thanksgiving breakfast tradition in my family. When I was younger, we ate a normal breakfast just like any other day, skipped lunch, and then had an early turkey dinner. But what always ended up happening, is that everyone wanted to try at least a few bites of each dessert, but nobody ever saved enough ...

Pumpkin Spice Streusel Muffins

Sunshine on crisp mornings are one of my favorite things about fall. The temperatures drop, the leaves start turning color, and I turn my oven on again after a summer of grilling pretty much everything. I love the smell of cinnamon wafting through the house when these muffins are in the oven. And there's nothing like pumpkin and spice that ...

No Bake Banana Cream Pie

This morning started off just like any other regular work day in the country. We got up in the dark, made scrambled eggs and coffee before my husband headed off to work just before sunrise. However this morning he got a serious surprise on the way out to his truck. I had just locked the door behind him and headed ...

Healthy Zucchini Blueberry Bread

There's something about the weekend that always calls out for baked goods. Lazy mornings with coffee, and something sweet to nibble on, are one of my favorite things to do in life. Whether we're at home or out camping in nature, I try and have one morning a week where I'm not tearing off in a hurry to get a ...

Salted Caramel Ice Cream Tart

Salted caramel is always a good idea in my book! I almost feel like a traitor to chocolate because of how much I love caramel. When you combine caramel with vanilla bean, the combination is perfect for all types of summer fruit. Since it's late summer, I've been loving the combination of peaches and blackberries in particular. For this easiest ...

Coconut Lime Ice Cream

This Ice Cream is the perfect partner for abundant summer berries, or pretty much anytime all year long! It's smooth and creamy without being at all heavy like ice creams can sometimes be. It's also one of those desserts that's both light and refreshing yet oddly decadent at the same time. The bright zesty note of citrus combined with the ...

Homemade Coconut Ice Cream

This ice cream..., it's silky smooth and so delicious. It reminds me of childhood days getting strawberry sundaes with soft serve at a certain popular chain. Now I know this delectable ice cream bears no real resemblance to my childhood favorite. But, that's okay because it's so much better! Something about the amazingly smooth mouthfeel of this ice cream is ...
