Brownie Recipes

Raspberry Cream Cheese Frosted Brownies

1.  Raspberry Cream Cheese Frosted Brownies –  My Raspberry Cream Cheese Frosted Brownies use a regular Family sized brownie mix for the base and a cream cheese and white chocolate frosting that is flavored with raspberry extract to take it over the top in the yum factor.

blonde brownies

2.  Blonde Brownies – If you are looking for a yummy Blonde Brownie Recipe that uses just few Ingredients then this is the recipe for you.  It just happens to disappear every time it gets made, and everyone raves about it when it gets brought to family functions.  This is my sister in laws recipe and it definitely gets my highest recommendation.  Blonde Brownies use brown sugar so they have a butterscotchy flavor that mixed with ample butter and chocolate is just out of this world!

Bread Recipes

3.  Starbucks Banana Walnut Bread – This recipe tastes so delicious that it’ll probably make it’s way into your best of the best recipes section. Starbucks distributed this recipe a few years ago, and I’ve been making it ever since.  There’s a reason people line up to buy slices of this loaf.  My favorite thing about this recipe is that it uses considerably smaller amounts of sugar, eggs and oils than other bread recipes.

Indian Fry Bread

4.  Indian Fry Bread Recipe – How to Make this Indian Fry Bread Recipe is so quick and easy it should be criminal.  Seriously. The best thing about this recipe is that you don’t need to let the dough rise, and, since the main ingredient is flour, it’s super inexpensive to make.  My kids teacher makes this recipe with her students as part of their Native American unit at school every year (that’s where I got the recipe) and it’s a highlight for the students each year.  I’ve helped a few years in a row, and I can tell you that I’ve seen nearly 70 kids devour this bread.  It’s THAT good.  To me, with a sweet topping,  it tastes like funnel cake at the fair.  Conversely, you can put savory toppings on it, like taco fixings, and it tastes more like a chalupa.  Yummy.  The recipe is absolutely kid friendly too (well, except for the frying part)!

cinnamon rolls

5.  Easy Cinnamon Rolls – This Easy Cinnamon Roll Recipe is easy, and it’s perfect for the holiday’s or any day. It’s great for gift giving, too.  I haven’t met anyone yet that doesn’t adore homemade cinnamon rolls!  One of the wonderful things about this recipe is that you only have to let the dough rise once.

Irish Soda Bread Muffins

6.  Irish Soda Bread MuffinsIrish Soda Bread Muffins are super easy, and the perfect St. Patrick’s Day food.  The muffins hardly take any time and the result is worth the time and effort.   This hearty Irish Soda Bread Muffin Recipe uses golden raisins since they are golden in color and my kids won’t touch brown things (like traditional raisins or currants) in baked goods unless it’s chocolate, and sour cream which always makes baked goods more moist.  I used green sugar sprinkles to make the muffins more festive and add sweetness and my kids thought they were a great breakfast muffin, which is high praise for a muffin that isn’t loaded with sugar.

Pie Recipes

7.  Easy Banana Cream Pie – I’m a huge fan of EASY pies and this recipe for Banana Cream Pie made with a Biscoff Pie Crust is delicious.  The pie crust is easy peasy and the pie filling is even easier.  The banana cream pie filling is just instant pudding mix.

biscoff pie crust

8.  Biscoff Pie Crust Recipe – This recipe for a Biscoff Pie Crust has got to be my favorite because it combines Graham Crackers, butter and Biscoff.  The combination leaves my mouth watering just thinking about it.  The thing I love about this recipe besides the crazy good flavor is how very easy it is.

Cupcake Recipes

9.  Easy Lemonade Cupcakes {recipe} – How to Make this Easy Lemonade Cupcakes Recipe is a snap.  The recipe is perfect for Spring and has a secret ingredient for super moist cupcakes – pudding mix.   Achieving great frosting is easier than you’d think too, you just need a ziplock back with the end cup off.  So, wow your family and friends with these luscious lemony cupcakes that look and taste too delicious to be easy.

10.  Pumpkin Muffin Recipe {2 Ingredient} – If you are looking for an easy Pumpkin Muffin Recipe that uses just 2 Ingredients then this is therecipe for you.  It just happens to be low fat, moist {without using oil} and delicious and since it’s so easy it gets my highest recommendation.

Trifle Recipe

12.  Easy Brownie Toffee Trifle Recipe – How to Make this Easy Brownie Toffee Trifle Recipe is really easy.  It’s actually really quick, too, once you’ve done the prep work of baking and cooling the brownies and making the pudding. It tastes so delicious that my trifle dish is always spooned clean.  The recipe serves 15-18, so it’s great for largish gatherings and chocolate lovers are going to be coming back for seconds.

Cookie Recipes

Chocolate Dipped Shortbread Cookies

13.  Chocolate Dipped Shortbread Cookies – Making these Chocolate Dipped Shortbread Cookie Recipe is easy, and it’s perfect for the holiday’s. It makes a delicious and beautiful cookie for gift giving!  I haven’t met anyone yet that doesn’t adore chocolate dipped shortbread cookies.  They fly off the counters in these parts.  The wonderful thing about this recipe is that it only uses six ingredients and doesn’t use eggs.

chewy chocolate chip pretzel cookies

14.  Chewy Chocolate Chip Pretzel Cookies – These chewy chocolate chip pretzel cookies are a new favorite.  I’ve been wanting to make chocolate chip pretzel cookies for some time, but most of the recipes I found make crunchy rather than chewy cookies.  I like chewy, cake like cookies so I took matters into my own hands.  I added broken pretzels to the top of my favorite chewy chocolate chip cookie recipe and I LOVE how they turned out.  Adding a little sea salt to the top would make these really good, too!
