Surprise Strawberry Pie Cake with Cute Lattice Pie Crust Topping

I’m going to be perfectly honest with you here (as I always am). This recipe idea for Strawberry Orange Pie Cake is not my own. I saw it in one of my back issues of Food Network Magazine and thought it looked like something I wanted to try. I did, however, adapt the recipe ingredients and also put my own touch on the lattice pie crust topping with those cute little strawberry accents to up the cuteness factor.

Best Ever Double Chocolate Graham Cracker Toffee

Sometimes the best recipes (just like inventions) come out of necessity. So it is with this recipe for Double Chocolate Graham Cracker Toffee. Since I’d had extra chocolate graham crackers left over from another recipe I’d completed, I wanted to use them up quickly before they got lost in the back of the pantry, which happens in my Kudos Kitchen more times than I care to admit.

Cream Cheese Cookies with Creamy Cheesecake Topping

I dressed these Cream Cheese Cookies in red for Valentine’s Day, but you can dress them in any color you like, or even leave them plain. The choice is yours. All I suggest is that you make them right away because they’ll soon become your go-to favorite cookie! Crunchy and creamy! Oh yeah!!!

Best Ever Santa’s Favorite Sugar Cookies & Family Memories

When we got married, and Mark and I started our own family, there were certain traditions I wanted to continue from when I was a little girl and hopefully pass along to our two boys. These cookies were one of the things I incorporated throughout the years to fondly rekindle my joyous Christmas memories. I am happy to report that our boys (now grown) feel exactly the same way about these cookies as I did, and still do to this day.  Christmas just wouldn’t be the same without Santa’s Favorite Sugar Cookies.

New Year’s Eve Appetizer & Cocktail Recipe Roundup – Friday’s Featured Foodie Feastings

I always enjoy a gathering of appetizers where I can pick and choose my favorites, and pile them on a plate one by one. I think there’s something in my brain that tells me that, because they’re small, the calories don’t count as much…so please don’t burst my bubble. After all, diet season is right around the corner so I can and will worry about those pesky additional pounds then. Until then…Happy New Year! Let’s Party!!

Easy To Make Pumpkin Shaped Sugar Cookies For Thanksgiving

Every year for Christmas it’s tradition for me to make my family’s favorite sugar cookie. I’ve shared the recipe in the past (way back in 2010) and dubbed it “Santa’s Favorite Cookie.” This year, I decided to mix things up a little so I used the same recipe (basically), and made pumpkin shaped sugar cookies for my family as a special surprise treat they didn’t see coming! Needless to say, the cookies were gobbled up quickly. 🙂
