"Dessert"

Blueberry Cheesecake from Indulge and Catherine Guidry

We could let our last post slip away without stealing a page from that gorgeous dessert buffet. Namely, the blueberry cheesecake that is causing me to sit on my hands as I type this so I don't go raid the fridge and make some variations as this sweet cream cheese blueberry filled goodness. Ok not really, but almost. So here you go my friends. The best way to cheat on your diet since these little cakeletts from the lovely dessert gurus of...

Poached Peaches from Katie Parra

Now that peach season is in full swing, I find myself craving them en-masse. Whether they're fresh from a basket at the market or incorporated into a sweet dish, I truly don't discriminate. So when Katie Parra sent along her recipe for poached peaches my love for her grew ten fold. Not only is she appeasing my current craving, she's also given me the...

Grandma’s Caramel Brittle Clusters

Continuing our countdown of grandma-approved goodies is a recipe that makes me believe the holidays are right around the corner. They're the treats my own grammy used to make whenever Christmas rolled around, but let's be honest, I'd happily eat them any time of year. And thanks to this recipe from Natasha, I'm completely convinced I need these...

Grandma’s Strawberry Bavarois

You know that feeling when you get into a total recipe rut. When you're making the same three desserts over and over again just because they're "safe." Well, I can 100% guarantee this Strawberry Bavarois sent all the way from Tokyo will pull you out of a rut faster than you can say, "Pass the heavy cream, please." It's the perfect treat for a hot summer day -- or any day, really -- making ...

Grandma’s Cinnamon Rolls

Cinnamon Rolls remind me of home. Except that our secret recipe comes out of one of those poppy can thingies. Don't judge people. If you haven't yet ventured into poppy can cinnamon rolls thingies, well, you're missing out. Although, after reading how easy these little gems that Amy sent in are to make, I'm thinking I might ditch the can permanently. Or maybe just on special occasions? I haven't decided yet.

Grandma’s Brown Eyed Susans

For me, this cookie is the perfect gifting cookie. Wrapped up beautifully, Brown Eyed Susans are the kind of cookies that are universally loved. So to score a "Grandma Approved" version of the classic, well, I'm feeling like I hit the cookie jackpot. A huge thank you to Shelley's grandmother for making our cookie adventures that much more delicious.

Grandma’s Coconut Cake

I think that having a staple afternoon cake is vital to every hostess' repertoire. Okay, maybe not vital but important. To have a quick, easy, melt in your mouth good cake that you can whip together when you know your girlfriend might pop over for the afternoon. Huge! Plus it makes the whole house smell like you're a slave to the kitchen which is always a plus. This coconut cake, from...

Grandma’s Strawberry Shortcake

Strawberry Shortcake is probably my favorite dessert of all time. I remember when my then boyfriend (now husband) bought me a giant strawberry shortcake from The Cheesecake Factory for the first birthday we celebrated together. We'd only known each other a few months. And the gesture sort of made me love him. A lot. So this shortcake, submitted by...

Grandma’s Cherry Galette

I'm thinking that this next little number is basically what Summer is all about. The freshest of fruit, simple ingredients, love spewing out of every last morsel. And while this submitter - Cynthia - never got the chance to know her grandmother, her mother always said, "your grandmother could make the simplest of ingredients taste amazing." So that is exactly what she did with this Cherry Galette.

Grandma’s Santa’s Treats

Blackberry Lemon Cake from Love & Lemons

What's a better combo than berries and cream? If you ask me, it's berries, cream… and cake. Better yet, cake that's scented with lemon. This one is pretty simple and easy to make. It's also vegan and uses healthy coconut oil which should be enough justification to eat it for breakfast if you really wanted to (surely, I didn't...) If you have more restraint than I do, it would be a lovely addition to a...

French Cherry Clafoutis from Bubblerock

There's something about a recipe that comes straight from your grandmother's kitchen that absolutely can't be beat. They're typically written in the finest of penmanship and stained with age, love and over-use. And since we're nearing the end of cherry season (insert soft sobs here), what better way to use the last of this years bounty than with this classic french cherry clafoutis recipe. Brought to us by Steph's very own late grandmother...

Not Your Sugar Mamas + A Recipe!

I'm not going to lie, it's only recently that I've come around to the notion that gluten free, organic, vegan treats and the like could actually taste good. Not only are they good, if done correctly, you shouldn't be able to tell the difference. Now I know that some of you skeptics are sitting there shaking your head at me, but one taste of Not Your Sugar Mamas gluten free chocolate cupcake recipe (below!) and I promise you'll be a...

Strawberry & Cream Slab Pie

So I have this thing with Cream Cheese. I hear the word Strawberry and I instantly think "And Cream." According to my thighs it's a terrible habit, but honestly...it's just who I am and I totally own it. So when I envisioned the recipes that would come from our Strawberry Series, I immediately thought of this favorite. Because it's soooo easy and sooooooooo good. Perfect for the 4th. Oh and store bought crust + no pie dish equal totally painless perfection. And if you missed it, we’re...
