Hooray for Halloween Treats!

Thumbnail for 10134
Hey Boo! It’s almost that time of year! October starts tomorrow and that means it’s time to start thinking about spooky cute treats. At least for me … I love baking and creating around Halloween. If you do too or need any ideas to trick out your treats, then check out my Cake Pops Halloween book. I created this book a few years ago, bu [...]

Chrissy Teigen’s Mac and Cheese

Thumbnail for 10124
This baked macaroni and cheese recipe from Chrissy Teigen’s cookbook is super creamy and the cheesy garlic bread crumbs put it over the top! If you’ve been looking for a saucier baked macaroni and cheese, this recipe is for you. Hypothetical (maybe) question… is there such a thing as too many macaroni and cheese recipes? My [...]

Chocolate Zucchini Cake

Thumbnail for 10120
Chocolate Zucchini Cake is rich, ultra-moist and the perfect cake for the chocolate lover in your life. So it’s officially fall, but let me just tell ya, it doesn’t feel like fall at all here in Ohio. Even though my porch is peppered with pumpkins and mums, the weather feels more like late July with temperatures in the mid to high 80s. It j [...]

Bergers-Style Cookies

Thumbnail for 10118
Soft vanilla cookies are topped with a rich fudge-like frosting that will take your breath away; a copycat recipe of the famous Bergers Cookies from Baltimore. When I opened up my latest issue of Cook’s Country magazine, one recipe immediately jumped out at me – these Bergers-style cookies. I had never heard of them before, but af [...]

A Failure To Communicate, Vol 67.

A Failure To Communicate, Vol 67.
I think this is what our grandparents call “a senior moment.” The best part?THEY WROTE IT IN ALL CAPS.   [sad face here]   “Sprinkles All Over Momther” is the name of my Cake cover band.   Ahhh, NOW you’re speaking my language. (The language… OF WRECKS. [eyebrow waggle])   In a wor [...]

Paleo Pumpkin Muffins with Streusel (...

Thumbnail for 10115
These paleo pumpkin muffins are topped with pecan streusel and have a great texture! With a video. I know I just posted some vegan pumpkin muffins last week, but those have no grain-free option – just whole wheat and gluten-free – so I felt compelled to post a paleo pumpkin muffin recipe, too! By the way, I’m guessing today’s reci [...]

The Weekend Dish: 9/23/2017

Thumbnail for 10113
Hello hello! I hope you’ve had a great week! We’re all recovered from the cold we passed around last week, and life has returned to normal, thank goodness! It’s been HOT here, and is supposed to be in the 80’s until next Thursday, which I mean, if you like hot weather, that’s awesome. However, I have a list of so [...]

A Series of Unfortunate Monograms

A Series of Unfortunate Monograms
Who thought this was a good idea?   Or this? (Never in my life have I so fervently hoped that a cake was chocolate.)   Or, Aunt Flo help us, this? “So, when’s the party?” “At the end of the month.”   Amy M., Jenna B., & Kim W., URQTs. At least, I like to think that you are. Not in a creepy w [...]

Let's Play Telephone

Let's Play Telephone
Ever wonder what could possibly go wrong with a simple inscription on a basic cake? Well, WONDER NO MORE.  Below I’ve listed the inscriptions some of my trusty Wreckporters ordered from professional bakeries, followed by the cakes they actually received:   “God Bless Neal” I hear it’s His middle name. &nb [...]
