Hamburger Cookies

I got the idea for these adorable cookies from my friend Rachel. She's always doing fun things with her girls and is just generally an awesome resource for delightful kiddo entertainment. I gave my kids a simple demo and then let them do the rest. They LOVED making (and eating!) these cookies! Easy, delicious and… Continue reading Hamburger Cookies

Fruity Lemon Cheesecake Cookie Cups

Do any of you use Safeway's "Just-for-U" program/app? I always forget about it until I'm mostly done with my shopping. Then I'm standing in the aisle, trying to get service on my phone so I can check if anything I'm already purchasing has a coupon. Occasionally, instead of a coupon, I find a freebie. "Mini-birthday… Continue reading Fruity Lemon Cheesecake Cookie Cups

Easy Strawberry Pie

I am a strawberry pie novice. I'm not blessed with the nostalgia of eating it as a child. I have no memory of gobbling down a gorgeous slice on a sticky summer evening. I envy those of you who regularly enjoyed traditional strawberry pie from your favorite little diner. On the corner. With kids playing… Continue reading Easy Strawberry Pie

Rustic Raspberry Lemon Cheesecake Tart

Summer is officially here! That means soon there will be all kinds of fresh berries available! Yippee! I'm really more of an autumn girl - actually, around the end of May I start looking forward to sweaters, colorful leaves, hearty soups and the smell of new school supplies. It's a sickness. Add it to the… Continue reading Rustic Raspberry Lemon Cheesecake Tart

Genius Golden Grahams Smore Bars

A couple housekeeping items before we get to the deliciousness here. Notice the new watermark gracing the corners of my photos? Isn't it lovely? Hopefully it will help keep people (who are not me) from passing off my stuff as theirs. Sometimes I'm so disappointed in humanity. Also, just above the actual recipe details, you'll… Continue reading Genius Golden Grahams Smore Bars

Robbed, Impersonated and Pissed Off

I just have to warn you that I'm extremely angry right now. I came home from a lovely Memorial weekend of camping in the great outdoors to find that someone has stolen content, copy and photos from Bakerlady and passed it off as his own. So here's my great big "you thieving rat" post. "Boy… Continue reading Robbed, Impersonated and Pissed Off

Oatmeal Lemon Creme Bars

I love all things lemon. I always have lemony recipes hanging around to try. My plan for this week was to immerse myself in all things yellow happiness fruit baking related. When I went to make two lemon desserts today I found half my lemons had vanished. They were in the fruit basket two days… Continue reading Oatmeal Lemon Creme Bars

Pumpkin Crunch Cake

If you are familiar with dump cake, you'll see the genius of this recipe immediately. My mom used to make dump cake when I was a kid. I'll have to post that "recipe" sometime soon. It's essentially canned fruit, topped with dry cake mix and smothered with butter. Not really a cake in the traditional… Continue reading Pumpkin Crunch Cake

Michael’s Is Evil and Wilton Is Wonderful

I went in for one thing. One. Thing. Some plastic baggies for my kid's Valentine's for school. That's all I needed. But, alas...Michael's is evil. So terribly, wonderfully EVIL. Out I came with a bag loaded down with rafia ribbon, chocolate melts and candy molds. I'm weak-minded. It's true. I'm a marketing and merchandising gold… Continue reading Michael’s Is Evil and Wilton Is Wonderful

Samoas S’more Rolls

It's Girl Scouts cookie contest time!! I'm cooking with cookies! I feel I have crossed a MAJOR milestone in my life. I had a box of Girl Scouts Samoas in my cupboard for a week and managed not to consume the entire thing. In my opinion, Samoas are the perfect food. Shortbready cookie, caramel, coconut… Continue reading Samoas S’more Rolls
