Hi ya’ll! I’m Jessica from All She Cooks, a Southern transplant living and blogging in the Midwest. I’m really from all over, having been a Navy brat my first few years, and then later an Air Force wife. Now… I’m the wife to an Air National Guard hubby whose civilian career planted us near Madison, Wisconsin. [...]
The princesses are back for National Princess Week, eager to show you their new castle!
You know what they say: “One princess’ doorbell is another man’s ding-dong.”
Hey! Snow White! HANDS OFF!
They also want to show off their finger painting:
And their… crown?
Let’s go wi [...]
Miniature garden gnomes, of course.
And yet, they really do exist and since I found them on my never-ending search for the most whimsical wedding favors around, I just had to share them with you!
Wedding favors really don’t get much cuter than this. The miniature gnome stands a mere 5 inches tall and he’s wearing a very cute fuchs [...]
This Raspberry Ripple Lemon Bundt cake is an easy, but impressive dessert full of Spring and Summer flavors! The fun raspberry ripple is eye-catching in the lemon cake! Adults and kids love this Bundt cake! #dessert #sweets #lemon #raspberry
Ooey gooey coffee cake made with yeast and loaded with caramel and chocolate.
I have a life-long obsession with all things caramel. From ice cream to candies, if there’s caramel in it – I’m all about it. Toss on a crumbly topping and a sprinkling of chocolate chips and this girl is diving in head first.

If you think animated characters today set an unrealistic standard of beauty for your kids, then you’re in luck! Today’s cakes will show you some great ways to lower that standard, all while teaching important life-lessons!
First, remember, girls: strong jawlines = strong women.
Also, some things are better gotten off your [...]
This healthier fettuccine alfredo skips on the cream but not on the taste! Creamy and cheesy with a little lemon zest tossed in.
There’s something I love even more than sweets and that’s cheese and carbs. Nothing beats a big pot of melty, gooey carb-laden goodness. This isn’t exactly melty or gooey but it still does the job! [...]
If you don’t like the taste of coffee, you can stop right here.
While some coffee-flavored desserts are mixed together with things like chocolate or butter that temper the flavor, there is no buffer in this recipe. It’s a coffee wallop, if ever there was one. I have never been a coffee drinker, as it’s just too bitter for me [...]
I received coupons from Driscoll’s for my berries in hopes that I may write about them.

It’s Talk Like Shakespeare Day!
So, instead of making Much Ado About Wrecking, we’re just going to let the Bard himself insult the cakes.
“They lie deadly that tell you you have good faces.” - Coriolanus
“Thou art a boil, a plague sore, an embossed carbuncle in my corrupted blood.” - King [...]
I absolutely love this cake because it elegantly screams ‘spring!’ and because those are real flowers that have been crystallized with sugar.
The three-tier cake is frosted with buttercream icing that was piped on to resemble a basket weave – so the cake actually looks like baskets full of fresh flowers.
This cake would be s [...]
If you are from anywhere near West Virginia or western Pennsylvania, chances are good that you’ve heard of (or eaten!) pepperoni bread (sometimes also called pepperoni rolls). It was pretty much a staple at my grandma’s house when I was a kid. Walking into her kitchen and seeing mounds of pepperoni bread stacked all over her count [...]

Rich chocolate ice cream combines with malt powder to create the perfect milkshake.
Chocolate Malt Milkshakes are something that will forever remind me of my dad. I have fond memories of chasing down the Mr. Softee truck with a fistful of quarters for two Screwballs (I totally need to find these for at-home consumption) and a Chocolate Malt [...]
In honor of National Princess Week, I’ve arranged to have some of the world’s most famous royalty come and visit! Woot woot!
But then they all canceled, so we got these instead:
I mean, uh, won’t you say hello, ladies?
“I DON’T LIKE YOU.”
“Life is awful, [...]
Are you a butterscotch person? I’ve admittedly never been a big butterscotch person, perhaps out of lack of exposure. My pudding experience as a kid consisted solely of vanilla and chocolate; butterscotch wasn’t something that was even on my radar, save for a piece of Werther’s candy that I would snag when we were visiting r [...]
