White Chocolate Lava Cakes

White Chocolate Lava Cake

Chocolate lava cakes are one of the world’s great indulgences, and I love to make them at home any time I feel like treating myself to a special chocolate treat. They’re not difficult to make, but they have to be eaten as soon as they come out of the oven, so they’re more time-sensitive than most desserts. The typical chocolate lava cake is made with ...

Toasted Coconut French Toast

Toasted Coconut French Toast

It’s easy to flavor the egg and milk batter that is the base of french toast by adding spices or extracts to it, but you can take your french toast to another level by adding different flavors and textures to the exterior of the toast, as well.

Elvis’s Banana Pudding

Elvis's Banana Pudding

It is well-known that one of Elvis’s favorite foods was a deep fried peanut butter and banana sandwich. It’s a great combination of salty and sweet, and you get a nice contrast between the creamy filling and a crisp exterior when the sandwich is deep fried. Peanut butter and banana is always a good combination and to celebrate Elvis’s birthday this year, I decided to ... Read More »

Oatmeal Snickerdoodle Muffins

Oatmeal Snickerdoodle Muffins

Snickerdoodles are one of my favorite types of cookie. Snickerdoodles are a type of sugar cookie that is coated in a mixture of cinnamon and sugar before baking, a mixture that gives the cookies both a beautiful color and a delicious extra layer of flavor. These Oatmeal Snickerdoodle Muffins are inspired by those classic cookies, though the cookies generally don’t use any oatmeal. The tender ... Read More »
