Vegan Banana Chocolate Chip Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting

This is an easy and customizable recipe.

Gluten Free Rosemary Cookies

    My original Rosemary Cookies are by far one of my most popular recipes so I thought I would see if they could be made gluten free without too much trouble or a loss of flavor. I had success! Before we get started let me give you a few tips to help in case…

Apple Danish Bundt Cake

    If you love the sweet cream cheese and apple pie like centers of Danishes then this cake is for you. It only made it to the second day with two pieces left because my family descended upon it like locusts. This cake was going to be a banana cake to use up some…

Maltball Cupcakes

All three of my werewolves and I have been battling strep so I decided to just this once make a recipe really easy and use a box cake mix. I don’t usually do this but you can forgive me I hope.  In making these cupcakes I was hoping for something that tasted like a malted…

Honey Donuts

 Every spring we have a tradition of leaving something sweet out for the fairies so that we have good luck for the rest of the year. The boys love to go out the next day and find an empty plate. I usually make Honey Cakes which are like fritters that you dip into a honey…

Coconut Lime Poundcake

This cake is another one of my tweaked recipes. I found a recipe for a coconut poundcake in a Martha Stewart publication and thought I could improve upon the recipe. I added some lime and rum flavoring and I also lowered the fat and the sugar content slightly to make it a little healthier. It…

Banana Pudding Cupcakes

First of all let me thank everyone for the thoughtful comments and all the sharing of my last post. It means so much to me to know that it was read and touched people. I am not always so sage-like but when I get into that mood I promise to share! Writing for this blog…

Gingerbread and Gingerbread-Spice Cookies

This is another requested recipe and I am also giving you a bonus recipe at the end but I did not make it for you this time. I spent 3 days trying to get the recipe for the next post right. You wouldn’t think that Banana Pudding Cupcakes would be so hard but I sure…

Lemon Merigue Cupcakes

I am a huge fan of citrus-flavored desserts so the other day I was thinking about lemon meringue pie and wondering how I could make that into a cake or a cupcake. I like cupcakes not because they are in right now but because they don’t require me to really commit to decorating. Doing a…
