Blueberry Crumb Cake

By | April 11th, 2019|Categories: Breakfast|Tags: , , , , , |0 Comments

One night while I was flipping throughout one of my 347,822 cook books, I came across a New York crumb cake recipe. Since the pollen has made such a grand entrance to let everyone know that Spring is here, it’s time to make some baked goods with fruit. […]

Every year for Easter, our day is packed with family activities. We start out at my in-laws’ house for lunch and Easter Egg Hunt in Aiken, then we come back home over to my brother’s house for dinner and another Easter Egg Hunt. By the time the day is done, I’m egged out with my belly sticking out and ready for bed. […]

Pina Colada Cheesecake

Growing up, I loved having the non-alcholic version of Pina Coladas. Even though I was 10 years old, it felt like I was an adult ordering a grown up drink when I smiled sweetly at the bartender, asking for a Pina Colada. They would usually grin at me, then prepare the frozen deliciousness without the rum. Oh, how the flood gates opened whenever I tasted a REAL Pina Colada for the first time with coconut rum. Oh. Em. Gee. […]

Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

Strawberry Shortcake Kabobs with Fruit Dip

If you’ve ever lived in the South, then you know how much we LOVE pollen (insert extreme sarcasm here). It’s already enough that we have to deal with the bipolar mood swings of Mother Nature and how she constantly changes her mind whether or not we’re ready for Spring, or if she’s just teasing us and throws SNOW at the beginning of April. […]

Bananas Foster Cheesecake

One of the regulars at Krafty Draft brought a friend of his over to meet me one evening while we were all there. He warned him, “Meeting her will be an experience, because the way she talks doesn’t match the way she looks.” I’m still scratching my head over that warning, […]

It blows my mind how these little guys escaped my childhood memories…until I saw them again. That’s when the vivid memory of staring at the serving plate, wide-eyed and open mouthed, before grabbing as many as I possibly could and running off before my mom could see how many I snagged. […]

Grandma’s Cinnamon Bun Cake

My grandmother made this for us growing up, and you’d thought a bunch of puppies licked the pan clean after we got a hold of it. She loved to serve this with a cup of coffee as an afternoon snack, and it always hit the spot…followed by a nap. […]

Coworker’s Going Away Cake

Since all of my baking madness started with a cake decorating class, it’s something that I still enjoy doing on occasion. One of my friends from Krafty Draft contacted me recently to make a cake for her husband, whose coworker was leaving for another job. He works in a male dominated profession with a lot of dry humor, and they found a cake they thought was hilarious and asked me to recreate it. […]

Twix Cheesecake

After putting this recipe together in my head, I stopped by the grocery store to grab a bunch of Twix candy bars. I placed them on the belt and was waiting in line, then a couple walked up behind me. The man chuckled and said, “Somebody likes Twix!” I smiled and said, “Yep! I’m actually using these to make a cheesecake.” His wife popped around him, “A cheesecake?!?!” […]

Last month, I got a text message from my 8th grade niece, asking if she could job shadow me. Of course! I replied. Not only does she get to play hookie from school on a Friday, but we got to make food that she picked out. […]
