If lemon desserts are your thing, you are really going to love this Lemon Sheet Cake with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting. Just like my carrot cake recipe, this recipe results in a moist cake, with an irresistible creamy frosting.


I've made this cake twice in the last month. First, I made it for my family. My daughter, Lorelai, loves lemons, but doesn't enjoy lemon-flavored candies or desserts. She did, however, tell me how delicious this cake is. Three nights ago, I made it again. It was the last dance practice before recital, so I wanted to bring something special to class. It was a hit! Not only did I receive compliments the night of class, but in the Facebook group the next day, as well.


  • "...that cake was sooooo yummy!" 
  • "It was deeeeelicious!! The frosting was exceptionally yummy." 
  • "I've never had cream cheese frosting that was so smooth and light."

So let's talk about that frosting. It's indescribably delicious. Light, fluffy, smooth, and super lemon-y! You'll find it hard not to eat it with a spoon. (Ahem - I may or may not have been the one who ate what was left in the mixing bowl.)

Old-Fashioned Carrot Cake

Topped with a homemade cream cheese frosting, this Old Fashioned Carrot Cake is incredibly moist, deliciously spiced, and melt-in-your-mouth fluffy!

Springtime is here and that makes me think of carrot cake. I'm not sure why, exactly. I mean, carrot cake is an incredible dessert all year long, but it does get extra attention at this time of year.

If you've ever been hesitant to make a carrot cake from scratch, let me tell you: It's easy. No, really. A beginner cook can do this. It requires no special skills, and once you realize how easy it is to make this cake from scratch, you'll want to make it again and again. 

And once you taste it? Boom! New favorite.

This cake is perfect for serving at parties and celebrations, too. I can almost guarantee you won't be bringing any leftovers home. It will be the hit of the event!

Buffalo Chicken Nachos

Buffalo Chicken Nachos are easy to make, and they're perfect for a party or an easy dinner. Guaranteed to satisfy your hungry crowd!

I was never big on nachos. I know - I'm weird. Who doesn't like nachos? It wasn't so much that I didn't like them, as it was that I didn't care one way or the other.

A couple of years ago, however, I started making nacho recipes. I don't know why, but I found myself trying a new recipe every week for a few months. I have quite a collection going now. 


This one stands out to me, though. When I think of nachos, I think Buffalo Chicken. They are so good!  Not just regular good, but that kind of good that will leave you wondering why you don't make them more often.


So good!


Except for my vegetarian daughter, all of my kids and sons-in-law love these nacho. I'm sure you will, too!



Chicken with Strawberry Balsamic Sauce

Chicken with Strawberry Balsamic Sauce is the perfect combination of sweet and savory. It's simple enough for a family meal, yet elegant enough to serve guests. 
Chicken with Strawberry-Balsamic Sauce is the perfect blending of sweet and savory. It's simple enough for a family meal, yet elegant enough to serve guests. Oh, and that sauce is life!


There's something special about combining savory and sweet flavors, am I right? That's why this Chicken with Strawberry Balsamic Sauce is one of my favorite recipes.


The combination of rosemary, garlic, strawberries, balsamic vinegar and honey make this an amazingly flavorful dish. It's not something I serve all the time, but I definitely try to make it once or twice during strawberry season. 

The Not-Elvis Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich

Elvis didn't invent the peanut butter and banana sandwich, but he sure did make it famous. This version includes bacon, and is a family favorite!

This sandwich has been a long time in coming. I've posted it on my personal Facebook wall several times. Every time, my friends ask "What is it?" and "How do I make it." So I've decided to share it here. Finally!


Peanut butter and banana sandwiches were not invented by Elvis. 

You've probably seen it around the Internet before, in various versions with Elvis Presley's name attached to it. I almost want to roll my eyes every time I see that

You see, I'm a Southerner. I grew up eating peanut butter and banana sandwiches. We never even knew Elvis Presley ate them. When Elvis died, an interview with his cook revealed he loved fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches.
