Delish Desserts

Spring Velvet Cupcakes by

Spring Velvet Cupcakes I bought a box of Spring Velvet Cake Mix and decided to make this. Then I decided to make them for a combo birthday party for my sister, my daughter and I.  The theme was a garden theme, and what better than Spring Velvet Cupcakes.  They were a big hit, in fact there were some peeps asking if there were any left.  I guess I should have

EXTRA Chocolate Chip Cookies

EXTRA Chocolate Chip Cookies These are called EXTRA Chocolate Chip Cookies because instead of 2 cups of chocolate chips, I added 3 cups of chocolate chips.  The original recipe by called for 2.  I just slightly adapted this one. My daughter, Sarah, requested HUGE chocolate chip cookies for her birthday.  We’re having a party, but she wanted some kind of treat on her birthday as well.  So, she found

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake Cups by

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake Cups I just love me some NO BAKE Cheesecake.  And not just because it rhymes.  It’s so easy and tasty.  And with summer coming up, you need all the help you can get keeping your house cool.  Am I right? I made these while visiting my Mom out of town. Do you have a hard time cooking out of your element (aka kitchen).  I felt so

Triple Chocolate Brownie Bites

Triple Chocolate Brownie Bites These Triple Chocolate Brownie Bites were made with Ghirardelli Triple Chocolate Brownie Mix.  Just alter the ingredients up a little bit and you can make brownie bites instead.  They come in handy for larger crowds or easier to transport.  Just throw them in a baggie. You could spruce them up some with some decor of your choice.  I chose spring colors for my decor.  But you

Easter Basket Cookie Cups by

Easter Basket Cookie Cups Aren’t these cute?  I saw the recipe in the magazine “Simply Sweet Fun Treats” . Pretty much followed it like a good girl.  However, after making them, with the help of 2 of my grandsons, I would change up one thing.  I wouldn’t use the cupcake liners.  They are not as easy to get off cookie cups as they are cupcakes. These were much easier to

Easter Peep Cake My Way by

Easter Peep Cake My Way Have you seen all the different ways on the web and mainly Pinterest you can make a “Peep” cake using the classic Marshmallow Treat, Peeps?  Love.them.  Here is my version of a Easter Peep Cake. You have many different ways you can use these little guys in with your Easter Treats. I’m going to show you my way. It’s so…..Easter, right? With my way, it’s

Fruit Dip made with Essential Oils by

Fruit Dip made with Essential Oils We had an Essential Oil party at my house this weekend to teach some of our friends and family what to do with their Essential Oils.  So, my daughter, Meg, and I made some snacks and drinks with Essential Oils. It was a HUGE hit.  So even if you’re not looking to possibly get healthier using essential oils, you could still use this recipe

GREEN Mint Chocolate Cheesecake - NO BAKE

Green Mint Chocolate Cheesecake – NO BAKE This would be a great dessert for St. Patrick’s Day…..or any other time of the year!  If you love mint chocolate chip, this cheesecake is for you. Best part………it’s a “no bake” cheesecake. AND it tastes like Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream. “No Bake” cheesecakes are my fav for a couple of reasons. One, they’re so much quicker and easier to make than

St Patricks Candy Dipped Oreos by

St Patricks Candy Dipped Oreos Another holiday gives me yet another reason to bake goodies, just with different colors. 🙂  Having Irish in me and all, I like St. Patrick’s Day. But not just because I’m Irish. It’s one of those holidays that has no “present buying” attached to it.  We can just celebrate. These St Patricks Candy Dipped Oreos are very similar to the Candy Dipped Cookies I made

Hawaiian Dump Cake

Hawaiian Dump Cake Dump cakes are quite possibly one of the easiest, yet tasty, cakes to make.  All you do is “dump” the ingredients into the baking dish and pop it into the oven.  No mixing required.  Can it get any easier than that? This Hawaiian Dump Cake is no exception.  All I did was layer cherry pie filling, crushed pineapple, box cake mix, butter, coconut and pecans to make

Texas Pie Y'all

Texas Pie Y’all I came across this recipe in a cookbook called “BEST of the BEST from TEXAS II”.  I want to start sharing Texas recipes with the world, and how better than to start with a Pie.  Right? When I read the ingredients in this pie (sugar, flour, eggs, milk and real butter), I knew it was going to turn out sweet, but wasn’t absolutely sure the texture of

Valentines Day Coconut Cupcakes by

Valentine’s Day Coconut Cupcakes My Mom loves coconut cakes and cupcakes. Since she’s here visiting, I made her fav, but in Valentine’s Day form.  Aren’t these cute?  They’re tasty too.  Did I mention they were easy as well?  Welp…they are some of the easiest I’ve made so far. Keeping pretty true to myself, I used a cake mix, instead of by scratch and already made frosting.  All I did to

Valentines Brownies by

Valentine’s Brownies Totally cheated, as usual, with this one.  All you need to do is spruce up a box Brownie mix with some candy and decor. Change it into Valentine’s Brownies just like that. Take your favorite brownie mix, add some M&M’s, sprinkle on some decor/sprinkles and if you want to take it a step further, squeeze some frosting on top as well. My Mom is in town visiting and

Valentine Trash Bars

Valentine Trash Bars I made some Halloween Trash Bars around Halloween, of course, and my daughter has been bugging me to make them again.  I decided to make them again, but this time make them Valentine’s Day Trash Bars. In my mind, and that’s a skeery place right now, I thought this is a great name for all of us who don’t have a Valentine (Sweetheart) to share Valentine’s Day

Cut Out SOFT Sugar Cookies

Cut Out Soft Sugar Cookies   Have you ever had those soft frosted cookies they sell in the bakeries of most grocery stores?  They’re cake like.  This is them 🙂 I personally like a little crunch to my cookie, but every now and then, I go for the soft.  They happen to be Sarah’s favorite. These taste just like them. A little heads up here.  When you decide to make

Candy Dipped Cookies by

Candy Dipped Cookies These are the easiest treats to make yet!!  I made these for my daughter’s reveal party.  First of all, she’s preggo.  Secondly, I found out what the gender was going to be, but she didn’t. Ha!!  My oldest daughter and I threw her a party.  These were one of the treats we made.  You see, for most gender reveal parties, the guests do NOT know the sex

Candy Cane Kisses Cheesecake by

Candy Cane Kisses Cheesecake   What a yummy & festive cheesecake.  Am I right?  This is made with candy cane Kisses, obviously, which are basically white chocolate with little bitty peppermint pieces.  The Kisses alone are delish!  Add them to the cheesecake and you have a double yummy treat! If you don’t like the candy cane Kisses, substitute them for another type.  They have a Cherry Cordial Creme that would

Peanut Brittle by

Peanut Brittle Peanut Brittle is a classic, don’t you think?  It makes a great gift for friends and family too.  I made some for my fam and one of my neighbors.  They loved it.  I love it.  But I can’t eat as much as I use to.  Couple reasons.  My teeth can’t handle it like they use to and it makes me fat now.  🙂 This is a sticky recipe

Christmas Popcorn Cake by

Christmas Popcorn Cake Not only is this a festive Christmas Cake, but I used a bundt pan to make it look like a wreath. Bonus!  I was inspired to make this when I was at my Son’s house last weekend.  He had a store bought mini popcorn cake and it was sooooo cute.  I told him that I needed to make one of those.  And I did!  This is very
