Chocolate Chocolate Chip Bundt Cake

ChocChocChipBundtCake

 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

StrawberrySourCreamCupcakes

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…

Tacaritos {Taco-Enchilada-Burritos}

Tacaritos

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 I originally made this for “family dinner”, which is when our family and the two neighbors from the old neighborhood indulge in our denial that we no longer live next to each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

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

MiniTrifle

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…

Sugar Cookie Bars

SugarCookieBars

This is so cheating. On more than one level. For starters, the pictures are ooooold. Remember when I lived in a super crappy apartment and all my pictures were done under fluorescent lighting and my “final shots” were ALL done on the one picnic table I had right outside my apartment? Yep, these are from…

My Favorite Thanksgiving Dishes

Thanksgiving Dishes

One of my favorite days is almost here. I mean, besides Friday. Thanksgiving is upon us, my elastic pants are washed and packed and ready to go. I’m ready to throw down an embarrassing amount of food. We are headed to see family, many of which I haven’t seen since 2012. Shame on me, I…

So Fast, So Delicious Garlic Breadsticks

Breadsticks

Here I am. I have crawled out from under my pile of moving boxes. The last seven days has been…eventful. A little stressful. Only partly humorous. Unfortunately, part of our crazy from last week involved the passing of our little dog, Bunny. We named her before we had kids and realized how confusing that name…
