Little Banana Bread

I’ve been in a food rut lately, but this little banana bread brought me out of it. By now I’m sure most of us have baked some kind of banana bread, but have you made a little itty bitty one? I could not resist trying it when I found this recipe. It’s so cute. I included a butter knife in the photos so you can get a sense of the scale of the actual size of it. To make this mini-treat requires a bit of tiny additional hardware. So you either need to own or buy a 5.5 x 3 …

Cornbread (Redux)

I’ve been craving cornbread so here we are making my favorite recipe. I originally shared this cornbread recipe back in 2013. Side note, how is it that I’ve been blogging over 7 years?! Anyway. It’s still my favorite cornbread recipe and I wanted to share it again because it’s that good. Plus, it’s a bonus for me to have updated pictures. It’s my favorite cornbread because it’s moist but a tad crumbly (as cornbread should be). There is a hint of sweetness in this cornbread, which I love.  Some people don’t like the sugar because they feel like they are …

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 …

Carrot Loaf

How do you like your carrot cake?  This is an ongoing debate that my husband and I have this time every year. I prefer a carrot cake that is loaded with pineapple chunks, raisins, and nuts.  I made a carrot cake like that years ago and my family still raves about it.  That was before I had my blog and I haven’t made it again since because quite frankly it’s a labor of love.  (And one that may cost more in skinned knuckles on the grater than it’s worth.)  One of these days I need to make it again and …

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 …
