S’mores Crescents

Okay, so I have a thing for s’mores.  It’s funny because I used to absolutely hate marshmallows.  But lately, ohh that gooey chocolate and graham flavor combined with toasted marshmallows?  Deelish!

6 ingredient Apricot Cheesecake

  This recipe has been one of my grandmother’s favorites for years.  We followed a recipe for it one day a long time ago when we both had a longing for cheesecake, but did not know how to make it.  We made it over and over again, subsituting the jam for different flavors to try… Read More 6 ingredient Apricot Cheesecake

Nutella and Cream Cheese Crescents

I love discovering ways to turn ordinary, every day ingredients, into something creative and delicious. Crescent roll desserts are some of my favorite creations.  There is an endless list of possibilities with a roll of crescents and I try to always switch it up when I’m planning to make a dessert with them.

My husband and I always have the same order at Starbucks: one tall hot white mocha and a slice of lemon loaf.  I had never tried their lemon loaf before until my husband introduced it to me, and  I absolutely loved it.  It was so moist and the frosting is the perfect combination of sweet… Read More Copycat Starbucks Lemon Loaf

Apple crisp has become one of my new favorite fall desserts.  Definitely one I have made quite a few times this season!  I love it so much more than old fashioned apple pie because of the delicious topping. Mmm, that’s my favorite part! Today I wanted to try it a different way so I made… Read More Skillet Apple Crisp
