Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are a favorite of mine. The combination of the hearty oats mixed with sweet milk chocolate leaves me a bit weak in the knees, I have to admit. I have been using my moms classic recipe for years (see it here). I love it to the moon and back, not just because the coo

I have to admit, sometimes when I am searching the vast internet (especially pinterest) for recipes, I am always baffled when I see a recipe for homemade candy bars. (Excepting these fabulous Homemade Peanut Butter Cups, which are truly to DIE for). Aside from the a fore mentioned pbcups, why spend
These fabulous German Chocolate Brownies are packed with rich, chocolaty flavor. Instead of making a traditional German Chocolate Coconut Frosting to go on top, I mixed a sweetened coconut mixture through the brownie batter, and baked the two together. This made the brownies super moist and deliciou
A couple of weeks ago I made these fabulous Hot Fudge Brownie Sundays for MyTeenSonMark’s Eagle Scout Court of Honor. A friend of mine suggested a great recipe she found online to use for the brownie portion. (Thank you Shawnell!) When I looked up the recipe I was pleased to see it was housed on m

Last spring, I made some lemon bars. They were sour and gooey…and not good at all. I wrote a little post about it here. Afterwords I had a lovely reader send me a recipe for “The best lemon bars ever….tried and tested….they turn out perfectly every time!”Well, lucky for you and Ithe lovely
When spring rolls around my inbox tends to see many emails that have a similar question. “I am in charge of planning food for girls camp! Help!” or “I have to feed 300 people at my family reunion, what ever shall I do?” or “Please send chocolate immediately, my son is leaving on a mission and after

The combination of Chocolate, Caramel and Pecan is truly classic, am I right? (Scroll to the bottom of the post to see some of my favorite recipes highlighting this dynamic trio). I am a big fan of anything packing these three in one recipe and these brownies are no exception!
