Schlap Happy Bars

I found this recipe for Schlap Happy Bars in a new cookbook that was written by Kimberly Schlapman of the band, Little Big Town. Reading cookbooks is one of my guilty pleasures and these Schlap Happy Bars can certainly be added to the list since they are as sinful as they are delicious! They are full of chocolate, butterscotch chips and chunks of toffee bars…

Banana Cake

This recipe was inspired by my Mother but it was NOT one of her homemade recipes. Instead, it was adapted from a favorite store bought cake that she would pick up when she did her weekly grocery shopping and it usually lasted less than 24 hours in our house. Some of us are lucky enough to be middle aged, or tipping the scale towards “senior status”…speaking for myself…

Sopapilla Cheesecake

My daughter-in-law Brittany tasted this sopapilla cheesecake at a wedding and said it was the best thing ever. My step-son Jason is a world class lover of all things “cheesecake” and he gave it a thumbs up! I looked at the recipe, the ingredients were very basic. It took practically no time at all to throw together so I gave it a shot. It was instant love. There’s something about the butter on top…

Super Easy No Bake Cheesecake

I honestly like this no bake cheesecake better than the traditional baked version, and you won’t believe how simple it is to throw together.

And I would venture to say that the traditional baked version of cheesecake…

Mom’s Chocolate Sheet Cake

I’m pretty sure that everyone on the planet at this point has had a piece of chocolate sheet cake. And most cooks have pulled out a sheet pan, grabbed their cocoa and whipped up their own version to take to a pot luck dinner or to a family BBQ. It’s an all around family friend dessert because it feeds an army and everyone always loves a sheet cake. And no one can ever…

Lemon Cake With Whipped Frosting

This is a simple and easy lemon cake dessert because it starts with a box mix. I love these “semi-homemade” desserts because they cut down on time but still give you that homemade taste. And any time you add fresh lemon to a recipe you always gain an edge – it simply takes food to another level. When the weather turns warm I have a tendency to crave lemon in everything…
