Cherry Cheesecake Wonton Bites

Print PDF Cherry Cheesecake Wonton Bites with a Cherry Balsamic Reduction – (recipe and video tutorial follow) – The other day I was walking through the produce isle at the market and there was this huge display of cherries and…….they got me.

So, anyway, I ended up going home with like five pounds of cherries which seemed like a great idea until I got home and remembered that I had just bought a ton of mangos,...

Carrot Cake – Only the Best You’ll Ever Have (and Grandma’s recipe)

Print PDF Carrot Cake - So, I’ve decided to make carrot cake for Easter. You know, Easter, bunnies, carrots, carrot cake – lol! This is another one of those great recipes that my Grandma passed down to me. I have added a few modifications, like I make mine whole wheat.

Butterscotch Apple Upside Down Torte (whole wheat)-Recipe

Print PDF Butterscotch Apple Upside Down Torte – I created this recipe for my favorite (and only) big sister, Julie. My Pooh Bear! She called me about a month ago telling me how she wanted to make a butterscotch dessert for her wonderful husband Andy as a surprise.

If she doesn’t have a recipe for something she wants to make, she always checks with me and Grandma for one. The...

German Chocolate Cake (whole wheat) with Coconut Pecan Frosting – Recipe

Print PDF German Chocolate Cake – Last week for my birthday, my kids practically shoved my husband and I out of the front door while promising to watch the little ones. They said I needed to go on a birthday date and that we should go see a movie and have some fun. What I did not know was that they had a secret plan. Tristan (age 16) and Vanessa (age 14) were making a roast turkey dinner, and Eleyna (age 12) and Tia (age 3) were making me a personal German Chocolate Cake. YUMMY :D! The picture you see here is a picture of the cake that they made. Pretty impressive in my opinion! It...
