Chocolate Chess Pie

I have a pie obsession. It’s my very favorite thing to make. I love it more than cakes and cookies combined. I think I love it because while it’s simplistic, it’s also a craft that few people care to take up anymore. Making pies is therapeutic to me, rolling the crust and crimping the edges…

Iced Thumbprint Cookies

Holy Moses. It’s been a month. Quick recap. In the last 30 days: I ran the Tennessee Ragnar Relay race from Chattanooga to Nashville, overnight, in a van with 12 other women. My total mileage over the 36-ish hours we were running was 16.7 miles (divided into three legs of the race). It was hot,…

The Time They Used The “C” Word….

I made you a cheesecake. It was gross. I mean, not gross gross. We ate it. But our bar is low people, like real low. If it has sugar and butter and whipped cream on top, we will eat it. But it wasn’t good enough to post. And that’s all I had for you. The…

Adulting 101

Surprise! This is not the post I had planned for this week. I WAS going to write some snarky post about parenting and feeding kids and share my favorite pancake recipe with you. And I still will. But life threw me a curve ball this week, be it a tiny curve call, and that all…

ChocChocChipBundtCake

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake

 I’ve been searching for a long time. For a recipe to duplicate one of our favorite flavors from Nothing Bundt Cakes. Bundt cakes don’t always turn out great. The wrong recipe will take foreeeeeever to bake and end up dry on the outside or worse, stuck to the pan. I’ve ruined many a bundt cake….

Strawberry Sour Cream Cupcakes

I’m going to rant about strawberry cupcakes for a minute so just hang on. I’ve made a lot of versions of strawberry cupcakes. Strawberry Champagne cupcakes , Strawberry Lemon cupcakes, and these strawberry cupcakes from two years ago.  Don’t forget about the strawberry ruffle cake from a couple years earlier. I thought I had it figure…

Mini Corn Dogs

There aren’t a lot of things in my parenting tool box that I would classify as brilliant, but of the few gems in there, this is one of them. It seems fitting to me that this brilliance is related to food as this seems to be where passion and excellence meet for me. When I’m…

Tacaritos

Tacaritos {Taco-Enchilada-Burritos}

Yes. Tacaritos are a thing. Why are they a thing, you ask? Why not just make really excellent tacos? Or enchiladas? Or hey, a burrito? Because.  It’s Thursday.  In my mind, making dinner looks like a beautiful apron tied around my waist, a glass of red wine next to the stove, and me peacefully taking…

Caramel Cake

Caramel Cake

Caramel cake. It’s my new obsession. That and fish tacos. But not together, because ew. I originally made this for “family dinner”, which is when our family and the two neighbors from the old neighborhood indulge in our denial that we no longer live next to each other and we all have lunch after church….

Sausage Bread

Sausage Bread

Guys. We survived. We got FOUR whole inches of snow last week and were subsequently “snowed in” from Friday to Monday. If you’re not from the South, let me explain how this is possible. We have seven snow plows for the entire Nashville area. I’m not kidding. Not even a little. So here’s what happens:…

Winter Confessions & Mini Bailey’s Cheesecake Trifles

Greetings from Nashville! As un-motivating as the whole 12 degree temperature is outside, I’m singing because the SUN IS SHINING! Ready for confession #1? The SweeterThing’s have recently discovered that my mind packs a bag and says “sayonara suckers!” when daylight savings ends each fall. It’s only taken me three years to identify this as…
