The Best Fudge Ever




Here it is. Finally, the fudge I've been talking about since December. The recipe I've been tweaking and perfecting all winter. I wanted a fudge that was creamy and soft, but still stayed in nice solid squares. Now I bring it to you in all it's creamy, rich, chocolatey glory.

Outrageous Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Cake




This cake is outrageous in many and numerous ways. First of all, it's the first thing I've posted in almost a month. I know that's ridiculous of me, but I do have an excuse. My boyfriend was visiting all the way from Berlin and he was only going to be here for two weeks. We went on a road trip out to Montana and had a grand old time, and to be honest, I really didn't think of you guys or this blog for a second. I'm sorry (sort of).

Copycat Kimberley's Bakeshoppe Granola



It's official. The high and honorable duty of being the head grocery shopper of the family has been passed down from my dad to me and two of my sisters. The job of shopping for our family of nine had simply become too much for one man. He would often run through Sam's club, fill the cart, pay, load up the car and then go back for a second or even third load. We decided it had to come to an end. My two sisters and I now rip the list into three pieces and each take a cart to different sections of the store, running through the aisles like maniacs racing to be the first one to the checkout.

Fat Chewy Peanut Butter Banana Cookies



The other day my sister was reading a Food Network magazine and said, "Oh hey, it's Elvis's birthday soon. You should do something Elvisy for a post."

Well, I guess "the other day" was actually over a month ago because I just checked on Google and his birthday was actually January 8. Also, I think bacon is actually supposed to be included in the famous peanut butter banana Elvis sandwich. It's not like me to forget bacon. I don't know what's happening to me.

Quick and Easy Basic Quesadillas





The other day my brother wanted me to make him some food to take to class with him.

"I have to leave in half an hour," he said, his stomach growling urgently.

"Well, if I make you something, can I take pictures of it quick so I have something to post?"

"Only if you hurry!"

Dark Chocolate Cheesecake with Kahlúa Truffles




Last week I was trying to decide what to make to post for you guys.

"Cheesecake!" my siblings pleaded, "Please, we'll do anything!"

After days of being harassed by the ravenous horde, I finally agreed.

The Best Blueberry Muffins Ever




Behold. The perfect blueberry muffin. After weeks of experimentation and tweaking, it's finally here. It is moist and fluffy, just as I dreamed it would be. It has the tall, perfectly cracked crown, sparkling with sugar. It even passed the squishy test, the perfect pillowy softness when lightly squeezed. Plus, it only dirties one bowl.

The Best Gluten Free Oatmeal Cookies {With Dark Chocolate and Cherries}




Hello everyone, it's me again. I decided I didn't feel like spending another thirty bucks on having one of my siblings write my post for me this week. I mean, come on. That is against the whole idea of servitude. I don't understand where they're getting these grandiose ideas.
