The first time I made this cake was for a pot luck. As my husband & I stood near the cake table, we overheard two women say, “Have you seen that coconut cake? Everyone says it is delicious!” This cake is lush & delicious, and pot luck approved!

Fried Pork Panko Honey Donuts
Sweet & salty is always an awesome combo! The honey icing and crispy pork panko topping is money. Frying the pork panko up a bit to get it extra crunchy was so perfect for these fluffy donuts!
Mardi Gras No Churn Ice Cream
With Mardi Gras celebrations in full swing, you’re going to want to add this King Cake inspired no churn ice cream to your dessert menu. I used store bought vanilla pound cake & cinnamon to mimic that King Cake flavor. The purple, green & yellow sugar crystals really bring this ice cream to life. Let the good times roll!
Mexican Wedding Cookies
This is a friend’s grandmother’s recipe and I was so honored to receive it. I had to make some adjustments to make it easier to understand, but otherwise it’s a genuine handed down family recipe. These cookies are very popular in South Texas and I’ve always wanted to make them from scratch. They’re quite easy and make a lot of cookies.
Fruitcake Cookies with Lemon Icing
When you eat these cookies I guarantee you’re gonna hear your favorite Christmas song happily singing in your head. They’re nostalgic, but with a modern touch. The lemon icing really sets them apart!
Giant Chocolate Chess Pie
If you love chocolate this is your pie! Decadently delicious and you won’t be able to stop at one slice. I must warn you, this thing is large, as it is made in a 9 inch pie plate. You can also make mini pies and all you have to do is adjust the baking time.
Apple Pumpkin Streusel Pie
If you’re a fan of apples and pumpkin this is your pie! I used pecans in the streusel and pre-made pie crust. It’s perfect for all your fall celebrations! I also solved the problem of the soggy bottom you often get with an apple pie. A little 10-minute pre-bake did the trick.
BUTTERMILK BROWNIES all dressed up for Halloween! These brownies are lighter & fluffier than regular brownies, and are topped when still warm with a beautiful butter & confectioners sugar frosting. I have been making them for years and there’s a reason ~ they’re darn good.
German Plum Cake
My mom always called this prune cake, but since I made this with plums I’m calling it plum cake. It’s a simple recipe and so delicious. More importantly, it reminds me of my mom. My family really loves this cake. It’s not too sweet and is perfect for this stone fruit.
This cobbler is so easy & delicious you’re going to want to make it over and over! It’s a great way to showcase that yummy peach flavor with minimal effort. Serve with some ice cream and you’re set.
