Classic Gobs (a.k.a. Whoopie Pies)

Thumbnail for 9835
If you’re from western Pennsylvania, then what the rest of the world calls whoopie pies, you fondly refer to as GOBS. Two soft, cakey chocolate cookies sandwich a creamy frosting filling, and the combination is utterly addicting. Even if you think you’re not a fan of these types of cookies, this recipe will change your mind in a h [...]

Simple Microwave Lemon Curd

It's A Tough Job But Someone's Gotta Blow It
WARNING: In-your-end-o jokes ahead. Hide the kids! ***** John: “Hey, we had a few complaints about that baby shower cake, so let’s steer clear of anything too off-color today, ok?” Jen: “Noooo problem. I have the perfect ON color cake we can use.” John: “Yeah?” Jen: “Yep. I call it, ‘TAST [...]

Pretzel Strawberry Ice Cream Pie

Thumbnail for 9826
A refreshing salty-sweet strawberry-vanilla ice cream pie with a sugar cone and pretzel crust, topped with fresh strawberry jam, hot fudge sauce, and more crushed pretzels. It took until nearly the middle of June, but sweltering, disgusting heat and humidity has finally reared its ugly head here in Pittsburgh, and I am less than thrilled. Sum [...]

Here Comes The Snide

Here Comes The Snide
In honor of all the summer weddings this month, I decided to sing a little song. (With apologies to Nat King Cole.)   Unforgettable… That’s what you are.   Unforgettable! Beyond subpar!   Like a song of love that CLINGS to me… (ew)   How the thought of you does THINGS to me… (seeing…red&# [...]

Celebrating the "Yes" with a bunch of "No"s
There are usually a lot of weddings in June, so I know you’re getting sick of all those perfectly lovely wedding and engagement cakes by now, aren’t you? [patting your hand] Well don’t you worry, dear; that’s what I’m here for. First, fellas, take note: This is NOT how you do it. “So I was picking up some [...]

Sunday Sweets: Pretty As A Peacock

Sunday Sweets: Pretty As A Peacock
When I was younger, I read somewhere that having peacock feathers in the house was bad luck. Something about the “eyes” on the feathers being evil. Now, I don’t know about you, but if I could gaze into these eyes all day, I’d consider myself downright lucky. Especially if I had a fork.   In fact, I’d feel p [...]

Peanut Butter Chunkers

Thumbnail for 9815
These cookies are major. Chocolate chunks, peanut butter M&M’s, and creamy peanut butter all wrapped up in a mega, palm-sized cookie. A happy and colorful cookie celebration. I’ve been obsessed with these peanut butter M&M’s since March when I first found them on shelves in the shape of eggs for Easter. I’m not a big peanut M&a [...]

Aaaaaaand I want to purge some cabinets in my kitchen, as well. I sort of fell off the purging/organizing [...]

Dirt Dessert Recipe

Thumbnail for 9808
A recipe for classic dirt dessert! This easy summer dessert features alternating layers of crushed Oreos and a chocolate pudding mixture. It is made to look like dirt, complete with (gummy) worms! I tend to think I’m a “regular Joe” when it comes to the type of desserts that I enjoy. I am more a “handful of chocolate c [...]
