A fun-to-make, fun-to-eat Cherry Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Cake Roll dripping with chocolate ganache. A perfect summer dessert.

A thin, rich chocolate sponge cake spread with cherry chocolate chip ice cream rolled up and frozen, then before serving it’s covered in a luscious chocolate ganache.

One of my favorite desserts to serve at a summer party is an ice cream cake roll. They’re always a hit and  you can change them up with any flavor ice cream you love.

My family is crazy about Cherry Chocolate Chip Ice Cream. Their favorite Cherry Chocolate Chip Ice Cream is the Private Selection Brand from Smith’s (Kroger.) They love that it has more cherries and more chocolate throughout – plus it’s rich and creamy. (more…)

My sweet friend Carol, whom I’ve never actually met in person, sent me a wonderful gift recently filled with all kinds of baking goodies, including some Ghirardelli Caramel Baking Chips. I’d never tried them and Carol said she was crazy about them.

I saved them for a while on the counter trying to think of the perfect recipe to use them in. Then one morning decided to make these decadent mini caramel coffee cakes for breakfast.  (more…)

I try to make healthy food choices most days, but some days I just want something decadent. We would sometimes go to Black Angus just because we loved their cheesy garlic bread. Unfortunately, they closed all the Black Angus restaurants in Utah.  (more…)

These Cranberry Citrus Cream Cheese Sweet Rolls start with a rich, buttery yeast roll dough that’s filled with citrus sugar and tart cranberries, then topped with a creamy orange cream cheese topping. Topping the rolls with more citrus sugar before baking gives the rolls a sweet crunchy top. The finishing touch is a tart lemon glaze drizzled on top before serving. They’re so good you’ll want to lick the plate clean.

Cranberry Citrus Cream Cheese Sweet Rolls made with a buttery yeast dough filled with citrus sugar, cranberries, topped with an orange cream cheese filling.

My family is in love with these Cranberry Citrus Cream Cheese Sweet Rolls. They’ve got a little bit of something for everyone to love. They’re sweet and tart, messy, and soft and crunchy in every bite. And they’re fun to make.  (more…)

A luscious Triple Berry Choux Cake with four layers of choux sandwiched with berry cream, iced with vanilla bean cream, and topped with fresh berries.

I recently joined a monthly baking group, Baking on the 15th. The first baking assignment was Strawberry Choux Cake. Kelly Wright started the group and also hosted the challenge for the month. Kelly found the Strawberry Choux Cake recipe in The Professional Pastry Chef by Bo Friberg.

In addition to strawberries, I decided to use blueberries and raspberries as well and make it a Triple Berry Choux Cake. Adding blueberries to a berry sauce makes it such a pretty dark red color. I also decided instead of a a two layer cake, I’d make a four layer cake so it would be tall and beautiful.  (more…)

If you’re a fan of Snickerdoodle Cookie, I think you’ll love these Lemon Doodle Cookies. Like a Snickerdoodle, they’re rolled in sugar before baking. But unlike a Snickerdoodle Cookie, they’re rolled in yellow sugar and Lemonhead candies. 

The yellow sugar adds a bright, happy color to the cookies making them even more fun to eat.

Key Lime Pound Cake recipe from Barbara Bakes. A delicious Southern twist to a traditional pound cake.

This recipe I originally shared as part of a virtual progressive dinner – of course I brought the dessert. This cake has become one of my most popular cake recipes and if you missed it the first time around, you’ll definitely want to give it a try.

The recipe uses both butter and shortening in the batter. I thought about changing the recipe and using all butter, but decided not to because shortening creates higher, lighter-textured baked goods, while the butter adds great flavor. So I knew a combination would give me the best of both worlds. (more…)
