TTW: Rolo Cheesecake Bars

Tia’s Treat of the Week officially ended last year.  That doesn’t mean she stopped making killer treats for her team.  This is one of those concoctions. The idea came from Pinterest.  That’s a given since Pinterest is the place where all food is turned into other food.  I think the whole Pinterest thing is based on …

Too Much of a Good Thing?

There’s no denying Pinterest’s awesome power.  Tia picked up many recipes on there to supply her Treat of the Week challenge last year.  There’s no denying there have been lots of hits and some misses in searching through the oodles of images. One trend I see the most in Pinterest, and the one I find the …

Individual Makes It Sweeter

Thanksgiving means pie.  Don’t try to deny it.  You’re guests are expecting pumpkin and probably apple.  How can you surprise them with something different, but sticking to traditions?  Make it individual. Tia made this little goodie as a Treat of the Week and vowed to never do it again.  It’s a popular post 0n Pinterest and …

TTW: Applesauce Coffee Cake

Fall is just around the corner and will bring the harvest fruits with it.  Some people will have the opportunity to pick a bunch right off the tree and then end up with tons of apples they aren’t sure what do with.  Applesauce is the staple for these situations, but then you are back to …

TTW: Gingerbread Cupcakes

When Tia said she was going to make a gingerbread cupcake, I sneered.  I scoffed.  I huffed and said “Who likes gingerbread?  I mean you’re forced to at Christmas time, but why would someone choose to eat it?”  Boy, was I wrong. People couldn’t get enough of it.  People who usually pass up sweets and …

TTW: The Pantry Brownie

The official name to this is the Ultimate Pretzel Crusted Peanut Butter Cookie Candy Brownie Bars.  Seriously?  How is anyone supposed to wait around for you to get out the title before you dive into this awesome brownie?  So, I changed the name.  Yeah, I did it just like that. With all the ingredients being …

TTW: Lemon Bars

It should be a crime to use lemons for anything but Lemondrop martinis.  Okay, maybe that’s a little drastic.  If you do end up having tons of lemons you aren’t sure what to do with them, here is a great, easy, summer recipe. These lemon bars are a fabulous combination of tart and sweet.  They have …

TTW: Buttermilk Blueberry Breakfast Cake

This is a perfect treat for a 4th of July morning.  And it’s super good, too!  I’m not a big fan of the blueberry muffin, but this cake is so much more.  The cake is moist, light and a nice ratio of blueberries to cake.  The crust on top has a crunch and a beautiful brown color.  The …

TTW: Strawberry Bread

For a few minutes, we saw a flash of spring.  There was warm sun beating down on our skin and even the whim of wearing shorts.  In this quick spurt there was enough time for strawberries to grow and the local strawberry stand to open.  To welcome this change of the season, Tia wanted to …
