I’m savoring the last bits of summer with fresh peaches from the local orchard. Their peaches have been amazing this year – super sweet and juicy. I picked up one last quart before it all that’s available are apples. These crisps are delicious with a gooey filling and the perfect topping….plus they’re individual sized. No feeling guilty for eating an entire one!
They are simple and easy to make. First you make the filling in a bowl, add it to the ramekins and then use the same bowl to make the topping. Perfect!
It’s cherry season and there are so many delicious recipes I want to make. The first one was this chocolate cherry crisp – chocolate chips melted with fresh cherries and topped with a oat crisp on top. My family loved it and it was a simple and easy recipe to make! They’re already asking me to make another one this week.
I’m back to buying fruit for my kids and then they’re not eating it. Ugh. I had a pack of raspberries and cream cheese that needed to be used up and found this recipe that uses both of them. Perfect!
These bite sized desserts squares are the best of two worlds – cheesecake and cake! The original recipe called for blueberries and they would be great as well. They were a big hit! The cake is soft and light and the cheesecake layer adds a little bit of sweetness.
Back in college, I worked at a food truck at flea market and we made fried oreos (and funnel cakes) all the time. I ate way too many of them while I worked … there’s just something about warm and gooey oreo with a cup of a coffee. Yes, I ate them for breakfast. It’s what happens when you start working at 6am on the weekends.
I decided to give the air fried version a try and they were so good. Granted, it’s not the same as being fried in hot oil … but it brings back the nostalgia of working all those early mornings making and eating fried oreos. This recipe uses crescent rolls as the dough. Quick and easy!
I’m excited to kick off #Choctoberfest 2020 with this recipe for Rocky Road Bars. This is my 5th year participating in this fun blogger event. I love chocolate and this is the perfect event for me.
These bars were so good. They are packed with marshmallows, peanut butter and chocolate. They’re also no-bake bars … simple and easy! My family devoured them in now time at all. I’ll definitely be making them again.
Many years ago I made biscotti all the time and it’s been awhile since I made a batch. I figured now is the time to get back to some of my favorite things to bake and new recipes to try. Biscotti is a twice baked cookie that is meant to be dipped in coffee, tea, cocoa or wine. Traditional biscotti is very hard and crunchy. This recipe yields a crunchy biscotti, but not one that requires dipping it into a liquid to enjoy.
I love the combination of the chocolate cookie, sprinkled with mini chocolate chip and then dipped in chocolate and pecan bits. My entire family enjoyed them as well.
I was in the mood for cheesecake and thought it would be the perfect time to give this recipe for blueberry cheesecakes a try. I also had 2 pints of blueberries my kids didn’t eat, so there was that too. 🙂 These are great to make ahead of time, grab and go.
These jars are packed full of so many good things – blueberry jam, creamy lemon cheesecake and a crunchy crust. These could be made with any berry and they would be perfect. I loved all the hints of lemon throughout the berries and cheesecake.
Berry season is almost here and I got a jump start with this simple and delicious crumble recipe. I had stocked up when I was at Costco the other week and bought strawberries, blueberries and raspberries – all of my kids favorite fruits. They ate a good amount of them, but I had some that I needed to use up before they went bad. You could easily replace the fresh fruit with frozen if berries are not in season.
The crumble was delicious. The berries cooked down to make a jam like substance and the top was crispy and sweet. It was perfect warmed in the microwave and topped with a dollop of whipped cream. A perfect way to wrap up a barbecue dinner.
Last night, my son’s school held their annual basket raffle and it’s always a fun time. I reserve a table and invite friends and family to join me a fun night. My daughter and I didn’t win anything, but it was still an enjoyable night supporting our elementary school.
We usually bring snacks and desserts for the table to enjoy. I’ve had this recipe pinned for a couple months and have been waiting for an opportunity to make it. They were delicious – the perfect 2 bite brownie.
The next treat I made for my work’s holiday luncheon were these cranberry walnut truffles. They were very simple to make – only a few ingredients – and delicious. I was a little worried they wouldn’t set, but after rolling them into balls and refrigerating the tray of them overnight, they were perfect. I had multiple coworkers ask me for the recipe. Success!
The combination of walnuts, dried cranberries and pretzels mixed together and then rolled in powdered sugar is the perfect bite of sweetness and salty.
