Mom’s Chocolate Zucchini Cake Perfection

My mother has been making this cake as long as I can remember. As a child, the thought of a vegetable baked into a cake was just supremely odd. Now I know that little flecks of zucchini melt into the chocolate batter making the texture and richness just perfect. My kids don't have any of… Continue reading Mom’s Chocolate Zucchini Cake Perfection

Snow Bear

It has already been a long hot summer here in the Pacific Northwest. And it isn't even August yet. June and July have been far too sticky and sweltering for this mild-weathered girl.

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

Dove Dark Chocolate Chocolate Cookies

"I don't understand why so many 'so called' chocolate lovers complain about the calories in chocolate, when all true chocoholics know that it is a vegetable. It comes from the cocoa bean, beans are veggies, 'nuff said." I have no idea who said this. I found it online at one of those portals for quotes… Continue reading Dove Dark Chocolate Chocolate Cookies

Oreo Mint Ice Cream Pie

As I wandered the aisles of the grocery store the other day I was struck with the realization that I find great pleasure in having enough random stuff in my cart that the cashier wonders if I may have multiple personalities. Joy is found in the little things in life people. Confusing salespeople is one… Continue reading Oreo Mint Ice Cream Pie

Lazy Heath Bars

I've been cleaning my house like a crazy person for two days. If you know me, you know this is NOT normal behavior. Usually I'm perfectly content for my house not to resemble a museum or some kind of scientific lab. I prefer to spend my time on the floor doing puzzles or coloring rather… Continue reading Lazy Heath Bars
