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 …

Chocolate Pound Cake

Chocolate seems to be left behind at Thanksgiving time. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about eating pies.  I love pies, but I thought I’d bake a chocolate dessert to make sure that we don’t forget about our beloved.  😉  How does chocolate pound cake sound to you? Picture a pound cake with a chocolate twist or a chocolate cake that’s more dense.  Either way you look at it, you’ve got something seriously delicious going on. The thing that I love about pounds cakes (besides the fact that they are tasty) is that you can serve it in a bazillion …

Iced Pumpkin Coffee Cake

And just like that, it’s already November. On November 1st the mall was already decorated for Christmas and some people have already posted pictures on social media that their house is decorated for Christmas.  I have to admit that that totally stresses me out.  It makes me feel like I’m behind on my holiday shopping and decorating.  Does anyone else feel that way?  I’m determined to enjoy these last days of Fall and ignore those early birds (or try to). If you only make one pumpkin goodie this Fall then it must be this coffee cake (excluding pumpkin pie because of …

Coffee Crumb Cake

I’m sort of obsessed with crumb cakes. The cake, the crumbs, I love it all.  I’ve posted a number of crumb cake recipes on my blog and I’d probably have done more if I didn’t think that you might say “okay, enough crumb cakes already, T.”  So I try my best to space them out. I know that I told you that the NY style crumb cake is the best one ever.  I still stand by that statement.  However, when I saw the recipe for this crumb cake, I simply had to try it to see how it compared. This …
