Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Don’t doubt me on this one. I know to some of you, the thought of putting pumpkin and chocolate together sounds a little strange, but you should give it a try!
 
I tested the deliciousness of these cookies the way that any Southern girl might do: I took them to Sunday School! They were gone very, very quickly, and that’s all the proof you need!

 

Coconut Cream Pie

Pinit

I hope you don’t think too badly of me for this, but for the first 22 years of my life, I did not like coconut (or at least I thought I didn’t!). I remember my mom getting me to try coconut when I was maybe 7 or 8, and I wrinkled my nose in disgust. I’m not sure if it was the texture or the taste, or perhaps the combination of the two, but after that day I would simply refuse to eat it.

Cinnamon Apple Cake

I was craving dessert the other night but had no idea what to make. I didn’t want to make a trip to the grocery store, so we were limited to what we had on hand, which did NOT include chocolate (unfortunately!) Herb and I each grabbed a couple of cookbooks and started flipping pages.

Dessert Fruit Pizza

I first tasted fruit pizza at a friend’s birthday party when I was in 6th grade. I’ve been obsessed ever since. There’s just something about a cookie with cream cheese frosting and fruit that is so heavenly!

Beach Party Cupcakes

Alas! It’s that time of year when all those youngsters put on their back to school outfits, pack up their pencils and binders, and say goodbye to summer as they head back to school. This signifies a time of mourning for my family – Herb, my mother, my sister, my brother-in-law, and several of my best friends are teachers!

Snickerdoodle Cookies

I was in the mood to bake something sweet, but didn’t want to do a full dessert recipe. After all, I do have a wedding dress to fit in very soon! So I did what everyone does when they have a question. I went to Google! I searched ‘dessert for two’, and as it turns out, there is actually a cooking website titled dessertfortwo.com. Just what I needed!

This chocolate pie recipe is adapted from The Little Black Book of Chocolate.

Our family has tried several chocolate pie recipes, but this is HANDS DOWN the best one. I get requests for this pie on special occasions. Today I’m making it at my sister’s request in honor of her graduation with her Master’s degree!
