Cherry Chocolate Chunk Muffins

There are 10lbs of fresh, pitted cherries in my freezer right now – they probably won’t still be there when that cherry margarita craving hits in November, but I do plan to stretch cherry season out as long as I can this year! We’ve managed to work cherries into dinner, dessert, and most importantly: margaritas. [...]

Rolo Ice Cream

Did you know that July is National Ice Cream Month? You do now! On a stick, in a cone. In a cup, a bowl, or floating in a frosty mug of Dr. Pepper… doesn’t matter how you eat it, it has the ability to turn back the “feels like” number on the calendar and the [...]

Blackberry Cherry Cobbler

It’s cobbler season! Anything you could possibly want to bake under a sweet dumpling crust is in season and super affordable right now. To celebrate, we took two perfectly ripe summer fruits, blackberries and cherries, and baked them into one magnificently bubbly, new-white-sun-dress-staining dessert. I’m old enough to know better. Now I’m hoping that I’ve [...]

Roasted Cherry Chocolate Cake

This week’s Project Pastry Queen recipe was selected by Amanda of Homekeeping Adventures: Mahogany Cake. What you’re looking at up there, that’s not really a Mahogany Cake. Mahogany cakes usually have coffee or espresso and I skipped on the coffee this week. Because I was excited that I could afford fresh cherries! And I got [...]

PPQ: Texas Pralines

Texas Pralines

I have working internet again. At home. To go along with the other two things I can’t live without: indoor plumbing and Diet Pepsi electricity. Not that I’d think that I could ever get tired of using Chick-fil-A’s free wifi (hello, Spicy Chicken Biscuits!) but holy cow, was I tired of packing up the entire [...]
