Toasted Coconut Pecan Pie

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #SweetenTheSeason #CollectiveBias Toasted Coconut Pecan Pie is the condensed version of this dessert’s name.  It’s actually Toasted Coconut Pecan Pie with Caramel & White Chocolate Drizzle.  Yes, it’s a mouthful and no, it wouldn’t fit in my title width.

Red, White & Blue Cobbler

Thanks, Driscoll’s, for supplying me with fresh raspberries for my Red, White & Blue Cobbler. Memorial Day and July 4th are right around the corner and my thoughts turn to all things red, white and blue!  When I received a coupon from Driscoll’s, I knew I wanted to make a quick and easy patriotic dessert. […]

Macadamia Nut Brownies

Brownies just happen to be my husband and son #2’s favorite dessert of all time – all brownies, any brownies, and especially my macadamia nut brownies. My husband likes these brownies piping hot with a big scoop (or 2) of vanilla ice cream, so these are a perfect dessert or snack for winter.  When he’s […]

Mini Upside Down Oreo Cheesecakes

My grands are constantly asking me about my blog and are especially interested in my hit or miss Wednesday posts!  Of course, I’ve also got them hooked on Chopped and we watch it together pretty often.  It’s actually very educational! If you missed last week’s hit or miss, you can find it here! My 8 […]

Blue Olive by Chef Xavier

The hubs and I visited the Blue Olive Restaurant and Wine Bar for lunch one day while shopping in Rodney Bay, St. Lucia.  I had read about it in a travel guide, so when we happened upon the restaurant while deciding where to do lunch, it was a no-brainer!  We didn’t need reservations since it […]

Hit or Miss – Root Beer Float Pie

I was recently browsing Pinterest for a lite dessert that I could serve on Easter Sunday along side of Dixie’s Pecan Pie Cobbler.  You can find the cobbler recipe here! I always try to offer at least one dessert that is lower in calories or fat just in case someone is actually watching what they […]

Pumpkin Caramel Cupcakes

I’m celebrating Throwback Thursday with these Pumpkin Caramel Cupcakes!  It’s never too early for pumpkin, right? These pumpkin caramel cupcakes have been staring at me since November 1st, when I turned the page of my  Betty Crocker calendar.  They had me at first glance.  And every time I looked at the calendar, I would gaze […]

Sweet Potato Dumplings

Think apple dumplings, not chicken and dumplings.  Think melt-in-your-mouth deliciousness.  Think scrumptious.  Think dessert OR side dish. Make a run to the grocery store.  Hurry.  You have to try these. I have a special place in my heart for the sweet potato.  Because it is, well, sweet.  You can fry it, bake it, casserole it […]

Beef Brisket & Chocolate Ganache

Need an easy meal to serve a crowd? My beef brisket & chocolate ganache is the way to go!  Beef Brisket (not to be confused with corned beef brisket) is your man, er, main dish!  And no, you don’t need a smoker to cook it!  Hang on, the Chocolate Ganache is for dessert – although I […]
