S’mores Cheesecake with Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce

On Wednesday, while Grace was taking a nap (she’s been quite sick), Allie and I made a s’mores cheesecake to bring some of our favorite flavors together. I had a new cheesecake recipe to try out, and we haven’t had a campfire in a while to get our s’mores fix, so it seemed like a good combination. Was it ever a good combination! That is the understatement of the year. Every bite of this rich cheesecake was loaded with the sticky goodness of marshmallows and the rich sweetness of my homemade hot fudge, and it was – dare I say … Read more

Last Sunday, it was our turn to bring the snacks for the small group meeting we attend at church. The other group members had set the bar high – homemade guacamole (that was amazing), fruit trays, tortilla pinwheels, and spinach and artichoke dip (also amazing). We had planned to bring a fruit tray, but there were none available at Walmart. Bummer. The only produce that looked nice was the apples. We bought 6 of them, 3 red and 3 green, and arranged pretty apple slices on a tray. Something was missing. We needed some fruit dip. I have a good … Read more

Root Beer Sherbet (or Any Soda Pop Flavor)

root beer sherbet

I have been working on a monster post all week long, so there hasn’t been much blog posting going on. I’m sorry about that, but I think it will be worth it when I finally get this 4,000-word novella finished. It’s about picture books, in case you’re impatient like me. In the meantime, I found a recipe for Root Beer Sherbet a couple weeks ago at Just Jen Recipes. I was intrigued as soon as I saw the recipe. When I explained it to Joe, he jumped up and ran to Walmart to get a bottle of root beer. The … Read more

Pumpkin Pie with Pecan Crumb Topping

Pumpkin pie says Thanksgiving to me. It’s not my favorite pie (that would be pecan), but I’m never able to leave it off of my Thanksgiving menu. This recipe is the best pumpkin pie I’ve ever eaten, due mostly to the thick layer of pecan crumb that I dribble over the pumpkin before baking. It could also have something to do with the whipped topping I dollop on top. This recipe and 11 others appear in Your Best Thanksgiving Ever!, the ebook I published in October. All 12 will grace my table this Thursday.   Print Recipe Pumpkin Pie with … Read more

Turtle Brownies

These brownies have a layer of caramel in the middle. They are so decadent that you can’t eat more than one.

Pumpkin Pie with Pecan Topping – Easy Thanksgiving Recipes

Originally posted on October 20, 2008 I love pecan pie, Dear Reader. I mean, I adore it. I wish I could live on pecan pie, but I don’t know if my teeth and hips could stand such a diet. Pumpkin pie, not so much. I like it enough, but I don’t love it. That’s not true. I do love it when it’s mounded with 2 cups of Cool Whip, but then it sort of ceases to be pumpkin pie and is really just pumpkin-y whipped topping, so I don’t think that counts. Anyway, when I started having my family’s Thanksgiving … Read more
