Chocolate Cherry Cake (Gluten-Free)

I almost didn’t post this amazing recipe, my friend. My gluten-free chocolate cherry cake sounds delicious (and is!) but looks ugly. I mean, truly hideous. It’s so bad that I didn’t even take a picture of the whole thing. What I have above is as good as it gets. As usual, my foibles make good learning experiences for you. I did some research after my regrettable mistake and found a way for you to make this cake Pinterest-worthy. I have included those instructions in the recipe below. Now, on with the post I wrote as the cake was baking (thus, … Read more

Cherry Almond Cake (It’s Gluten-Free but You Won’t Mind)

Cherry Almond Cake - Gluten-Free

Any time you use cherry and almond in the same sentence as dessert, I am right there with you. I adore cherry almond anything. I may even like cherry almond better than chocolate. Tough call. Stay with me through this next part. I have to tell you why I came to have this cake. Or just skip to the bottom. That’s where the recipe is. Yesterday, I explained how Allie got what nearly amounted to a birthday non-party for her third birthday whereas Grace had two pretty elaborate parties for her third birthday. With that in mind, let’s talk about … Read more

Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake

Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake

Imagine a layer cake with cherries in the center and rich, chocolate ganache covering the top and pouring down over the sides. Sounds decadent, doesn’t it? Now imagine the layers are made of cheesecake. That’s what this is – an Oreo cookie crust topped with a layer of cheesecake, then a layer of cherries, then another layer of cheesecake, and the whole thing is topped with chocolate ganache. I took this cheesecake to my church’s Thanksgiving service, and there was nary a morsel left to bring home. It was sliced and resliced because everyone wanted a morsel. I said to … Read more

Cherry Cordial Creme Brownie Cheesecake

Yesterday, I mentioned the decadent cheesecake recipes I found on the back of the Hershey’s Kisses packages I bought. I shared the Candy Cane Swirl Cheesecake recipe I found, but I made you wait til today for the Cherry Cordial Creme Cheesecake. If I was cooking for myself, I’d make this one before the mint one. I’m just saying.   Photo courtesy of Hershey’s Print Recipe Cherry Cordial Creme Brownie Cheesecake Course Dessert Servings Ingredients 1/2 cup butter melted1 1/4 cups granulated sugar1 teaspoon vanilla extract2 eggs2/3 cup all-purpose flour1/2 cup cocoa powder1/4 teaspoon baking powder1/4 teaspoon salt8 ounces cream … Read more

The Easiest Cherry Pie Ever – Easy Thanksgiving Recipes

I make 3 pies for Thanksgiving dinner. It doesn’t matter how many guests are coming, nor who they are. Thanksgiving isn’t Thanksgiving without a slice of cherry pie. And a slice of pumpkin pie. And a slice of pecan pie. It just isn’t. And I make all 3 of them myself, usually on Tuesday before Thanksgiving. Are you impressed? Everyone always raves about all that work I did to make three pies, but all three are so easy that it’s embarrassing. This cherry pie is by far the easiest of the three, and it’s a great place for Grace to … Read more
