Mini Pumpkin Cheesecakes

I think I have officially exhausted my capacity for creating pumpkin treats this fall. I spent the month of November on a pumpkin muffin-making extravaganza. I wanted to introduce myself to a bunch of the local medical and dental offices as a new pediatric dentist in town, and I knew I couldn’t show up empty handed – so 19 dozen pumpkin muffins it was! ...more

Monster Cookie Sandwiches

If you’ve been reading this blog for some time, you know how much I adore Halloween desserts. There are SO many options, both scary and creepy, that all get the imagination going. I love the googly-eye trend and obviously anything with teeth, so I was excited to give these monster cookies a try ....more

Apple Streusel Cheesecake Bars

I gotta get at least one apple recipe in before pumpkin season completely takes over. I baked for a BBQ a few weekends ago, and wanted to bring a dessert that would surely be a crowd pleaser and make use of the abundance of apples in my fridge.

I know I say it every single summer, but any dessert that doesn’t involve turning on my oven in the summertime is one I love. For the first time in our adult lives, Ryan and I have a grill at our house, and we’re quickly becoming BBQ-addicts ....more

Cookie Monster Ice Cream Sandwiches

Have you seen the cookie monster ice cream craze going on this summer? I’ve noticed a lot of “cookie monster” desserts in general on blogs the past year or so, and I’ve bookmarked tons of them.
