Two Berry Cream Cheese Cake

A while ago I saw the recipe for a three berry dump cake on Pinterest. It looked good but I’m not a huge fan of blackberries or raspberries and I had blueberries and strawberries in the freezer so I decided to make Two Berry Cream Cheese Cake. It was easy enough for the day I had Sunday and it was for a kind of special occasion. Mr. C and I were having dinner with a young man who robbed me at gunpoint!

Toffee Cheesecake Cookie Cups

The recipe for Cheesecake Cookie Cups is from Pillsbury. The only changes I make are in the toppings. I’m sharing this recipe because it’s a great dessert for large gatherings. With summer on the way we’ll all be going to or hosting barbecues, picnics, and other events (think the 4th of July). Toffee Cheesecake Cookie Cups are always a hit when I make them!

Jean’s No Knead Herb Bread

If you’ve read some of my early posts you’ve read about my friend Jean. She was Nanny Jean to my kids and not only a beloved friend but my mentor in so many ways. Jean was patient in her teaching as I was a very young wife and mom. I was really nervous when she told me she was going to have me make bread for the first time! But she taught me a really simple, really delicious way to make Jean’s No Knead Herb Bread and I still make it to this day!

Puff Pastries with Peg

My dear friend, Peg saw the Tasty’s puff pastries 4 ways video and wanted the two of us to try making them. I was a little intimidated when I watched the video. After all, what would I do if they didn’t turn out absolutely perfect? After giving it a little thought I realized that, when things go wrong in baking, you get to eat the mistakes!
