Apple Cake

by Michele Pesula Kuegler November 14th, 2017| Desserts, Recipes
Last weekend I had some free time and two hungry teens at home.  With schedules, like most families, that involve busy days and nights, it's not often that we make time for an indulgent evening of dinner and dessert.  However, last Sunday was quieter than usual, which prompted me

Caramel Apple Biscotti

by Michele Pesula Kuegler September 27th, 2017| Breakfast Dishes, Desserts, Recipes

The classic fall treat turned into a baked good!


As I've mentioned, one of the things that I love about fall is the abundance of apples. Another thing that I love about fall and try to indulge in once each season is a caramel apple. There's something so wonderful

Banana Blueberry “Ice Cream”

by Michele Pesula Kuegler September 20th, 2017| Breakfast Dishes, Desserts, Recipes

This really could be a breakfast dish.


Monday featured a dish that embraces fall. Today I have a dish that begs summer to stay for a few more days. I mean, you can eat ice cream all year long, but I primarily treat it as a summer food. Who

Tangy Cream Cheese Frosting

by Michele Pesula Kuegler September 13th, 2017| Desserts, Recipes

Serve it atop a cake or a spoon; it's your choice!


As I worked on my recipe for Margarita Cake with a Kick, I wondered what sort of frosting should be paired with it. I debated some sort of coconut frosting but didn't want to lose

Margarita Cake with a Kick

by Michele Pesula Kuegler September 11th, 2017| Desserts, Recipes

All it's missing is the salted rim.


This cake is not for those who approach tequila warily. There is a half cup of tequila involved in making the cake. Of course, the cake serves anywhere from eight to twelve people, depending on slice size, so at most your slice

Caramelized Pecan Biscotti with Salted Butterscotch Glaze

by Michele Pesula Kuegler August 30th, 2017| Breads, Breakfast Dishes, Desserts, Recipes

Crunchy, sweet, & salty- these biscotti have it all.


As I wrote on Monday, I mostly eat healthfully. However, I do have a sweet tooth, which I keep under control more often than not. Sometimes, though, I just need to give into the cravings. (Although I do try and

Chocolate Swirl Rolls

by Michele Pesula Kuegler August 16th, 2017| Breads, Breakfast Dishes, Desserts, Recipes

Chocoholics, be excited. I've found another way to deliver chocolate to you!


A couple tidbits about me:

  • I thoroughly enjoy baking.

  • I love cooking for others.

  • I am not a big fan of chocolate.


All three of those facts play into today’s menu. On a recent Friday morning, I made

Strawberry Cheesecake Parfait

by Michele Pesula Kuegler July 26th, 2017| Desserts, Recipes

All the flavors of strawberry cheesecake with almost none of the work.




I do love cheesecake, as does my family. It's a delightfully indulgent dessert to be enjoyed on a birthday or special occasion. However, it requires careful baking. Don't want to underbake it and deliver a cheesecake that

Simple Watermelon Sorbet

by Michele Pesula Kuegler July 19th, 2017| Desserts, Healthy Cooking, Recipes

The easiest, homemade dessert ever




So, there aren't supposed to be themes on Think Tasty anymore, but I can't help it if I've had a bit of a watermelon kick. With watermelon in the house to make the Watermelon Blueberry Feta Salad, my daughter mentioned making

Chocolate Peanut Butter Krispie Treats

by Michele Pesula Kuegler July 12th, 2017| Desserts, Recipes

Why eat plain Krispie Treats when you can have even more excitement?


For me, cooking for other people is one of my preferred ways to show that I care. Whether I'm invited to your house, am hosting you, or have a meeting, I like to share my cooking as

Peanut Butter Truffles

by Michele Pesula Kuegler June 22nd, 2017| Desserts, Recipes

Feel free to call them protein bites, if it makes you feel better about eating them.




My process for creating recipes is varied. Sometimes I'm inspired by a dish that I have at a restaurant or see in a cooking show. Other times I find a recipe online and

Mini Cannoli Cups

by Michele Pesula Kuegler June 8th, 2017| Desserts, Recipes

Sometimes you just need a bite-sized bit of cannoli.


Cannolis are a perplexing dessert for me. I do like them, but whenever we are at a restaurant that serves them, more than likely there is another dessert that tempts me more. Perhaps it's a dish of salted
