Chocolate Chip Pretzel Candied Pecan Cookies inspired by The House With A Clock In Its Walls

My family and I were invited to a pre-screening of “The House With A Clock In Its Walls” this past Saturday, the new movie directed by Eli Roth (Hostel/DeathWish)and starring Jack Black and Cate Blanchett. The House With A Clock In Its Walls is a magical kid-scary film. It reminds me of the movies that used to be made back in the 80’s that were just frightening enough to make you jump out of your seat, but nothing that would project your dreams into nightmares.

Moist Layer Orange Cake With Buttercream Frosting has been the topper to my month of August and my headache. I have made the cake pictured above a few dozen times from a recipe I had jotted down on a torn piece of paper and casually placed amongst my books. Most recently my handwritten recipe has gone MIA, which threw me into a total panic, because a dear friend was requesting it. I kept asking myself why didn’t I ever put this recipe on my blog? How in the world did I misplace one of my treasured recipes? It was back to the development drawing board for me. To be honest, I had to make 3 different versions of my Moist Layer Orange Cake With Buttercream Frosting until it tasted exactly the way I remember the outcome tasting of my handwritten recipe. Here it is… never to be lost again. (more…)

My Cherry Tres Leches Cake is the best I've ever tasted.

I’m a big fan of cherries. They are probably my favorite stone fruit. I only say that with a little hesitation because I’m thinking that statement through, but yeah, cherries are my favorite. I’ve been making cherry desserts since I was thirteen. I’ve made a few here even, my cherry almond mini cakes, chocolate cherry bread pudding, and pecan cherry pancakes. You get my point, I’m a cherry cheerleader. (more…)

I’m a mom. A mom that tries to satisfy everyone in my family. If you follow me on social media or here on my blog you know my son is a strawberry fanatic. He is extremely picky with the quality of strawberries and will not allow them to pass his lips if they are not red to the stem or even slightly bruised. With this type of inspection going on we have bought strawberries grown around the planet in search of what is ideal to his tastes. He has finally nailed down that he prefers strawberries grown here in his homestate of California. (more…)
