My kiddo loves getting in the kitchen with me as he's all about "helping" right now. I'm sure I'm not the only mama dealing with a little Mr. Independent at home right now....

End Of Summer, Easy Layered Dessert

Now that I am back under my own roof it's nice to be back in the kitchen again. I really missed cooking for my friends and family!

So, I decided to adapt this recipe that I found on Pinterest and make an easy layered dessert. The end result was a quick, festive dessert that tasted pretty darn good too if I don't say so myself.

Dessert Dishin’: Juicy Peach Galette

I have quite a love for creating cakes adorned with sugar flowers and dreaming up decadent chocolate desserts, but when it comes to a simple summertime dessert, I find myself gravitating toward fruit, especially peaches. Something about peaches just screams summer to me. I’m talking about the luscious ripe ones so juicy that when you take a bite, juice runs slowly down your chin. So, what better way to pay homage to the beautiful offerings of fresh fruit at the market, than to bake that fruit right into a pie? Pies can be labor intensive with...

DIY Chevron Easter Eggs

It's no secret, I love all things chevron. I mean I LOVE chevron. I think I love the pattern more than ikat and that is really saying something my friends.  Knowing of my sordid chevron love affair, my friend Diane didn't miss a beat when I told her I was on a mission to create DIY Chevron Easter Eggs. I mean how cute would that be (insert high-pitched girly squeal)!?!  A few googles and text sessions later and we had a rough game plan on how to create DIY chevron Easter eggs.  I think they turned...

Valentine’s Day Chocolate Chip Cookies

Who doesn't love a good chocolate chip cookie?  I mean really, I don't think there is a person on this planet who can resist them. I've been making them from scratch since I was a little girl and even have the recipe on the back of the chocolate chip bag memorized.  I remember one night several years ago when Floyd and I were still dating and we decided to have a low key night in. I asked if he wanted cookies, he of course said yes, and I started taking out the ingredients from my cupboards.  I...
