Thumbnail for 2239

If you hadn’t figured it out yet, the secret is out… I’m a peanut butter fanatic. I’ve made tons of different peanut butter pie variations (Butterfinger Pie, chocolate-peanut butter pie, frozen [...]

Wedding Cake with Flowers and Bees

Thumbnail for 2237
That being said, I had to share this cake today because as soon as I saw it I was in love. With a cake. At first glance you might think “wow, this is a busy cake”…and while you’d be right, I would argue that it’s busy in a good way. A really good way. I love the stark white icing on the four-tiered cake. But what [...]

The Cake Said WHAT?

Thumbnail for 2225
When you see the same ol’ “happy birthday” butchered day after day, you learn to cherish the cakes that break the mold and say something truly unique. Whoah, thought that said something a little off-color for a sec! (Who else saw “Jerk?”)   Anyway, I’ve been collecting some of the better examples fo [...]

Basic Creamy Coleslaw Dressing Recipe

Thumbnail for 2221
When you grow up in Pittsburgh, coleslaw is only sometimes a side dish. More often, it’s one of many components in only the best sandwich known to man. If you’ve never been to Pittsburgh and enjoyed a legendary Primanti Brothers sandwich, you owe yourself a trip. At the very least, make one at home! The sandwiches are popular beca [...]

Muddy Buddy (Puppy Chow) Marshmallow ...

Thumbnail for 2211
Do teenagers still write notes, or exchange notes during school? Or has texting and social media totally replaced that? This has nothing to do with the recipe, but I was on my way home from the grocery store over the weekend when a John Cougar Mellencamp song came on the radio. His music (among countless others) always reminds me of high scho [...]
