I love biscuits and come from a long line of exceptionally talented biscuit makers. Unfortunately, I did not inherent the biscuit making gene. For years, I struggled to make a really good biscuit, one that is light and melts on your tastebuds and goes great with butter, honey or jam. Years and years of trial […]

Oh yes, it is apple season. Fresh apple cake is one of my family’s favorite ways to celebrate the arrival of Fall. Chock full of pecans and apples with a hint of cinnamon, this cake hits all the right notes. I also use a variety of apple so use your favorite varieties. Come on, put […]

Now that temperatures are dropping, I like to switch from a cool, creamy yogurt for breakfast to warm, sweet blueberry muffins. Fresh blueberries are wonderful but frozen work beautifully. I freeze berries throughout the season to get me through the winter months. I find blueberry muffins require a little extra sweet to put them over […]

Mama managed a household of four girls, one work-acholic husband, and volunteered outside of the home three days a week.  Busy as she was, Mama always managed to serve a delicious home-cooked meal complete with dessert, every night.  Looking back now, I marvel at her ability to get things done and to do it with […]

Who doesn’t love pound cake? It’s a delicious, moist, dense cake. You don’t need filling or frosting at all. There are so many flavors but I keep coming back to the sour cream flavor profile. This moist, dense cake is a star right by itself.  Sprinkle a little powdered sugar on the cooled cake and […]

Sour Cream Pound Cake

Peaches have a special place in my heart.  Daddy owned a farm in Sylvania, GA for many years.  Mama referred to it as a “gentlemen’s farm” because they never intended to make a living from the farm, it was just something Daddy loved doing and Mama humored him.  One of my favorite memories of the […]

Peach Crisp

My occasional drink of choice is always a Margarita made with Patron, salted rim, and on the rocks. With guests coming over for a Mexican dinner party, I wanted to serve a cheesecake version of my favorite drink and the Margarita cheesecake cupcake was born. I love cheesecake cupcakes.  Quicker to make, quicker to cool, […]
