Chewy Granola Bars

I wanted to make a big, fancy two layer yellow cake today, but reality set in and I realized I wouldn’t have time to go buy cake flour and frosting ingredients. That, plus we’re still working on the pie from a few days ago (I froze pieces individually). Luckily, I did have a hodgepodge of […]

March 5, 2014

I was actually in the process of writing down my favorite scratch cake ball recipe when I got an email from “Cakeballz” saying their product was now available in Walgreen’s and asking if I’d like a sample. Well, of course I did! You have to know your competition, right? So a few days later a […]

Chocolate Whoopie Pies

As popular as Whoopie Pies seem to be on the Internet, I hardly ever see them at school events or bake sales. We get a lot of cupcakes, brownies and chocolate chip cookies, but Whoopie Pies? Nope. I guess people perceive them as too much work or forget about them altogether.  I usually fall into […]
