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

Peanut Butter and Jelly Waffle Sticks

Peanut butter and jelly waffle sticks

It’s a Week of Waffles at Feels Like Home! Being that I’m a Chief Waffle Officer, I’ll be posting waffle recipes featuring Eggo Waffles all week – from April 1 to April 7. I’ll share some breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, and dessert recipes, so make sure you come back each day for my most recent creation! (In the interest of disclosure – Eggo Waffles are not gluten-free. I did sample this recipe, and it was delicious.) My kids’ favorite foods are ones they can play with. They like to dip, spread, and sprinkle, and they love to assemble their own mini sandwiches. Whether with crackers, bread … Read more

Triple Chocolate Cake with Homemade Chocolate Butter Cream Frosting

triple chocolate cake with homemade chocolate buttercream frosting

Is your mouth watering? It should be. I turned a plain old cake mix and a few humble add-ins into a moist and decadent chocolate masterpiece for my dad’s birthday. I felt like Jesus, feeding the masses with a couple of loaves. Well, except that this cake didn’t feed the masses. It was so good that everyone wanted a second slice, and every crumb was gone before the sun set on my dad’s birthday. So I guess it wasn’t much like Jesus after all. You’ll love it anyway. This is the right amount of frosting for a bundt cake. If you decide … Read more

Bananas Foster Pancakes

bananas foster

As I mentioned two weeks ago, I had the pleasure of watching Chef Aaron McCargo, Jr, host of Big Daddy’s House on The Food Network, cook in person at Blogalicious. It was really fun. One of the recipes he prepared follows, Bananas Foster Pancakes. I adore bananas foster. I don’t care if it’s plain bananas foster over ice cream or if it’s bananas foster donuts or bananas foster cheesecake or cookies or candy. Slightly cooked bananas served hot in a sticky sweet, rum-flavored syrup can don any dessert in my book. Remember from my last recipe post, sun-dried tomato, basil, … Read more

Irish Potato Candy and Other St. Patrick’s Day Fun

Irish Potato Candy Recipe

I’ve never much cared for St. Patrick’s Day. I think my 3D ultrasound was on St. Patrick’s Day in 2007, and the only reason I remember is that my father-in-law had a green beer when we all went out for dinner afterward. It’s not been a memorable holiday in my life. Until this year. In case you haven’t noticed, we’ve done every holiday with Grace in a big way. It’s just more fun that way. St. Patrick’s Day was no different. This morning, Grace drank green milk with her breakfast. If you put a couple of drops of food color … 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
