Banoffee Pie

I remember hearing about Banoffee Pie decades ago – but what I didn’t know then was just how EASY this is to make. And it’s soooo Caramelly Toffee Banana goodness. A shortbread crust, a good thick layer of Dulce de Leche, bananas and whipping cream touched with coffee. All those wasted years…

Raspberry Filled Cupcakes with White Chocolate Buttercream

Happy Valentine’s Day! Valentine’s Day is often thought of as the day we celebrate our sweetheart. Flowers, chocolate, cards and cupcakes are all appropriate. Yeah, see how I worked that Cupcake in? Slick, huh? In my defense, this is a Raspberry Filled Cupcake topped with Carlee’s White Chocolate Buttercream. It’s not to be missed.

Bill’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

Death by Chocolate Cheesecake

I fell off the healthy wagon early this month and made Death by Chocolate Cheesecake! Hands down the most decadent cheesecake, ever. It should carry a warning, just in case the name isn’t enough to clue you in. It’s a serious Chocolate Cheesecake for chocolate lovers, only!

Cocoa Snowflake Cookies

When I make Christmas cookies, Cocoa Snowflakes are always on the list. Why? Well, there’s chocolate. And there’s that almost chewy texture that works so nicely with the crispier sides and bottom of the cookie.
