Brown Sugar Pumpkin Pie

This recipe is full of miracles, the first one being that I actually baked a pie and it came out tasting great! Pick your jaw up off the floor, please! It must be the season. The second miracle was the fact that my pumpkin-hating husband and son, who can only stomach it when it’s seriously spiced up and floating in a curry sauce or in my chicken harira, voluntarily ate…

Key Lime Cheesecake Pie

Yep, you read that right. You see, this (no bake) key lime cheesecake pie was made with real key limes… while I’m in the Netherlands! Really, folks, this ranks incredibly high on the coolness scale because we only have regular ole limes on my side of the pond. A big shout out to my girl Ellen over at In My Red Kitchen, who was sweet enough to mail me a…

Bake me! I’m Yours!

The kid likes to bake so much that I secretly think he was switched at birth. Just my luck. So today was one of those days. We were tired of baking cookies, but we had chocolate chips and weren’t afraid to use them. Now bear in mind that these were supposed to be chocolate chip cupcakes with a white chocolate frosting. See intro shot. Sounds good, no? That’s what I…

Black Magic Cakes

Not really a photo recipe, just something basic I wanted to share with you. Seriously, I have too much time on my hands and not nearly enough to do with it and I have the internet. In layman’s terms this means trouble. Suffice to say I bought way too much stuff. One of the things I bought was a kMix. I really did need a new stand-mixer and simply wasn’t…
