Million Dollar Cupcakes

Million Dollar Cupcakes

I am the birthday baker at work and this is by far the most requested cupcake recipe for any of my co-workers birthdays. Everyone always asks for the recipe, but I have never given it out…until now!

Banana Pudding  cookie

Banana Pudding cookie

A new found favorite for people who love less fat, but still get that southern taste in a cookie. Who wants to ride around eating banana pudding from a cup when you can eat it in a cookie form and be just as guilty. I am all about creativity and pushing the envelope. Being from the south has brought a new perspective to the word “Southern Banana Pudding”

CATABRIAN CHEESECAKES (Quesada Pasiega)

CATABRIAN CHEESECAKES (Quesada Pasiega)

Quesada Pasiega is a crustless lemon -flavored cheesecake from the Cantabria region of Spain that is perfect as a light dessert or an afternoon snack. It is made with fresh farmer’s cheese, such as requesón or Burgos, but ricotta and cottage cheese are a good substitute. To serve, top with grated sugar-free dark chocolate or, if you prefer, fresh berries. For a more distinctive, traditional taste, sprinkle with cinnamon.

Coco-Coconut Muffins

Coco-Coconut Muffins

These scrumptious chocolate muffins are deceptively healthy. Compared to similar muffins, they pack a nutritious whole grain punch, and swap out sugary chocolate chips for intense cocoa nibs; a depth of flavour true chocolate lovers can appreciate. Start your morning with this no-guilt indulgence!

S’mores Rainbow Cake

S’mores Rainbow Cake

I make this every New Year’s Day, because my youngest son, Sam, has a birthday on January 2 and always requests it.
