Coconut Lemon Cake

Coconut Lemon Cake at www.foodiewithfamily.com

Is it wrong that I post two desserts in a row? Do you hate me? I can’t help it. I have a really good reason. Yesterday, my second born turned fourteen. His requested dessert was a nod to his southern daddy. He wanted a “coconut cake.” I decided immediately that he’d have the honest-to-goodness, big,…

Tiramisu Bar Cookies

Tiramisu Bar Cookies on foodiewithfamily.com

Tiramisu is one of a handful of desserts that are magical to me. Even though I make a lot -and I do mean a lot- of desserts, I really don’t have a sweet tooth and I’m not terribly tempted to indulge often. If, however, you stick a bowl or plate of tiramisu in front of…

Heath Bar Crunch Chex Mix {Sweet & Salty}

Heath Bar Crunch Chex Mix at www.foodiewithfamily.com

Chex mix is something I only allow myself to make between the day after Thanksgiving and the end of January. I can’t handle myself around it and eat myself to the point where I feel like a turtle stuck on its back. A happy turtle, but a little less capable of moving under my own…

2-ingredient Reese's Pretzel Bites at www.foodiewithfamily.com

My father is obsessed -OBSESSED, I TELL YOU- with peanut butter. When we chat on the phone before visits, I ask what he’d like to eat while he’s chez us. His response is almost infallibly “Peanut butter ____” because honestly, as long as the peanut butter part is there, my dad is a happy man….

Salted Pepita Brittle | Homemade Candy

Salted Pepita Brittle | www.foodiewithfamily.com

Yeah. I know. It’s not OFFICIALLY fall yet, but PEOPLE. I can’t wait one more second. The breezes are decidedly turning into gusty fall ones. The sky is taking on that gun-metal hue. The leaves are changing colour and I. Want. Fall. Food. So, I’m sorry if you’re in the “TOO SOON” camp, but this…

Whiskey Peach Cobbler | www.foodiewithfamily.com

Up here in rural New York, we are diving head-first into peach season. I have a half bushel sitting on my counter staring at me right now, and I’m tucking peaches into just about every jar, mouth, and dish that I can. Whiskey and peaches are a match made in heaven. Sweet, perfumed, juicy peaches…
