Brownie Cake with Nutella Peanut Butter Frosting

Salty sweet. Salty sweet. Salty sweet. Salty sweet. Salty sweet. Despite the prevalence of desserts here on Foodie With Family, I don’t have much of a sweet tooth. I think that is why I’m so picky about my desserts. When I DO want a sweet, I don’t want just any sweet. I want the best. [Read On]

Earl Grey Cupcakes with Lemon Buttercream

  Last week was a beautiful, fantastic whirlwind. My house was filled with out-of-town family members who had converged to celebrate the wedding of my baby brother, Luke, to the woman of our, er, his dreams, Elvi. Luke is a poet and I do not mean that esoterically. He’s an actual poet. He’s finishing up [Read On]

Whole Cherry Clafoutis (Cherry Custard Tart) | Classic French Dessert

Plrb. That’s the genteel version of ptooey. Which is what you’re inevitably going to have to do if you eat a clafoutis whilst in France. This brings me, rather quickly, to two very important points. Clafoutis -for the benefit of those who haven’t yet had it- is seriously good stuff. It’s a warm or room [Read On]

Sweet Tea Ice Pops | Make Ahead Mondays

I have a confession to make but I’m going to do it quickly and quietly because I’m going to offend the entire South in one fell swoop. (Idon’tlikesweettea.) There. I said it. I just don’t. I love tea -don’t misunderstand me- but I like my tea black and bitter… like my attitude in hot weather. [Read On]

Butterscotch and Milky Way Tapioca Pudding | Amish Recipe

I’ve told you about my friends, Ada and Anna, in the Maple Sandwich Cookies post. What I haven’t told you about these ladies is that we are constitutionally incapable of having a conversation without it somehow turning to food and lots of it.  We talk about every kind of food we can think of, but [Read On]

Fudgy Peanut Butter Cup Brownie Cupcakes

On Father’s Day, I told my husband I was making him a healthy dessert. Then he went fishing and I accidentally made these. I guess that makes me a liar. But at least I’m a happy, belly-rubbing, satisfied liar. Here’s what happened… I had a brownie mix that was rattling around in the cupboard for [Read On]

Chocolate Covered Banana Pops and Homemade Magic Shell | Make Ahead Mondays

  Well, hello Summer Vacation. That snuck up on us quickly, didn’t it? (My kids would argue that it’s taken forever to get here. Ah, youth.) The boys have already thrown themselves headlong into the summer rhythm of fishing, biking, climbing trees, catching snakes, dabbling toes in brooks and lakes, snacking, and swinging in hammocks.

One Ingredient Mango (or Banana) Ice Cream

Around a decade ago, my stepmom, Val,  and my dad gave us a seriously burly juicer as a gift. For those of you well-versed in juicers, I’ll name drop for a second here; it’s a Champion. That thing is jet-engine powerful. And I used that jet engine to make juice. Lots of juice. Juice is [Read On]
