Meringues With Chocolate Mousse

Individual meringues filled with chocolate mousse

This recipe is based off of a pie my mom makes. It was my sister’s favorite dessert to have on any special occasion. In a pie format, cutting this into slices without the meringue breaking into a million pieces can be problematic. I made these last night to take to a dinner party, and pretty

All-Purpose Homemade Dough

Dough in a mixing bowl

This dough is one of the most versatile I’ve ever used. It can be used for rolls, pizza crust, stromboli or calzone crust, pot pies, and more. My boyfriend is the one who originally started to experiment with this recipe. He says it’s the closest thing he’s been able to make to butter rolls his

Spiced Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Spiced pecan chocolate chip cookies

A local magazine was having a cookie recipe contest, so of course I wanted to enter! It’s an unusually chilly summer day today, and it’s raining, so I think I came up with these because they remind me of fall. (Update: I was runner-up in the cookie contest!)

Great Aunt Corrine’s Fudge

I used to love eating this as a kid. I took it to school as birthday treats instead of cupcakes many times. It’s not as soft as traditional fudge, but so delicious! As my mom says, it’s a tricky recipe, but so worth it. I had to call mom part of the way through to
