Fresh Tomato Tart with Zucchini & Thyme Infused Caramelized Onions

I’m not sure which part of this Fresh Tomato Tart I love the best! Is it the slices of garden fresh tomatoes and zucchini, the crunchy cornflake crust, or the layer of thyme-infused caramelized onions? 

But, I guess it really doesn’t matter which part is my favorite because all of these delicious elements are incorporated into this pretty presentation! Once you try it, you’ll also be hard pressed to decide which part is your favorite.

No-Knead Apple Yeast Bread with Cinnamon & Sugar

If you’ve shied away from baking yeast bread before because you think they’re complicated and fiddly what with all that kneading, this No-Knead Apple Yeast Bread is right up your alley!

This dough basically takes only one bowl, one spoon, and a little bit of rising time. You really can’t get any easier or less fiddly than that!

Low Sugar Cherry Yeast Bread with White Chocolate Ganache Drizzle

I decided I’d like to make this bread a little less sweet than what the local bakery sells in order to really let the flavor of summer cherries shine. The result is this beautiful (and healthier) cherry yeast bread that is perfect on its own or slathered with butter. Is it so wrong? LOL

German Bee Sting Cake (Bienenstitch) Kudos Kitchen Style #SummerDessertWeek

Before I started baking, I was a little intimidated to tackle this traditional German Bee Sting Cake. Our BFF’s have been to Germany many times over the years, and they’ve spoken so highly of this cake I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to do it justice. Since I was gifting this cake to them for the many thoughtful acts they’ve done for us in the past, I especially wanted this cake to be amazing!

How to Make American Flag Heart Decorated Sugar Cookies with Video Presentation

There was a time, not all that long ago, when I used to bake a decorate sugar cookies almost every day. That was about 10 years ago when I ran a small home based cookie business called Kudos Kookies. Notice anything familiar about the name? 😉

Now I only bake and decorate sugar cookies when I’m really in the mood, and when there is a special occasion. For me, Memorial Day and the 4th of July are just the types of special occasions which call for patriotic cookies. Especially when they’re these fun American Flag Heart Decorated Sugar Cookies.

Berry Fresh Blueberry Peach Crisp Recipe

There is something comforting and charmingly and old-fashioned about a crumble or crisp. It’s like a dessert-hug grandma would have made for Sunday dinner when the family was coming over.

I think any grandma would be proud and pleased to place this Berry Fresh Blueberry Peach Crisp on the dinner table in front of the family. And hopefully, someday I’ll be that grandma. *wink*
