Iced Lemon Pound Cake

If you’re looking for a lemon dessert then this lemon pound cake is it. I’m kind of weird when it comes to lemon desserts.  If I’m presented with lemon pie, cake, cookies, you get the idea, I initially politely pass.  “I don’t like lemon desserts,” I’d say.  But somehow I usually cave and end up trying it.  Usually it’s a piece off of my husband’s dessert.  Let’s face it, I love pie, cakes, and cookies, so it’s hard to resist.  “Hey, that’s tasty,” I say.  I guess you could say that I don’t like the idea of lemon desserts, but …

Pumpkin Cheesecake

There was a day when I didn’t care about cracks on top of a cheesecake. My husband has made this pumpkin cheesecake a few times (before my blogging days) and we’re pretty confident that it cracked then too and yet we continued to make it again and again.  Why?  It’s out of this world delicious.  We loved it.  Our families loved it.  We’ve never made any other kind of pumpkin cheesecake because there is no need to try any other when you’ve found one that tastes as good as this one.  Plus, it’s easy to make. I debated on whether …

Banana Crumb Cake

I’m on a mission to make every flavor of crumb cake possible. If you search “crumb cake” on my blog then you’ll see that I’ve made a few.  I can’t help it.  I just love crumb cakes. This crumb cake combines two of my favorite recipes, the cake part from the banana cake recipe and the crumb topping from the coffee crumb cake recipe.  The end result is a moist banana cake topped with buttery crumb topping.  Be still my heart.  This combo is as wonderful as I had imagined it to be.  I love it when that happens (because it’s not always …

Chocolate Cupcakes for Two

Today my blog is four years old.  Wow… just wow. Every birthday deserves a cake.  I didn’t want to make an entire cake for just me and my husband so I went with cupcakes instead.  The best part is that it’s a recipe for only two cupcakes which is totally perfect for a party of 2! Guys, I’m going all out for this occasion and sharing my first cupcake recipe with you.  How have I not made cupcakes before?!  Oh right, I hate frosting cupcakes simply because I’m horrible at it. Baking the cupcakes is easy peezy.  It’s just like …

One Layer Chocolate Cake

Are you done with your holiday shopping? I had all my shopping done by December 4th.  I’m not trying to toot my horn or anything.  😉 Although I haven’t wrapped them yet…. I hate that part.  I’m glad that I got my shopping done earlier so that I could focus on entertaining friends and family.  Earlier this month we had friends over and I served a triple layer chocolate pie for dessert.  It’s long gone but I’m still wishing that I had some around.  Gosh, it was fabulous. This past weekend we had some other friends over and I made this …
