Peanut Brittle

by TT January 28th, 2013| Desserts, Recipes
A quick glance at this recipe for peanut brittle could make one think that it is ridiculously simple.  Boiling and stirring three ingredients does seem to be easy.  However, things aren't always what they seem.

I'm not trying to discourage readers from trying this recipe, I simply am offering a

Lemon Squares

My children are confirmed choco-holics.  Chocolate in almost any form is enjoyed by them:  cookies, cake, pie, granola bars, sandwiches even.  (Nutella has become a regular stocking stuffer for all of them.)  So, it is such a nice change of pace when they request something that doesn't have a

Every Christmas season my mom makes my favorite cookie, Snickerdoodles.  These tiny sugar cookies are wrapped in delicious cinnamon sugar.  They are best when they are warm, but they are always good.  I especially love them with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of caramel.  The

Southern Peanut Butter Pie

Last year during the month of December I shared family favorite recipes from members of the PeKu Publications team.  I thoroughly enjoyed learning about others' family traditions, as did our readers.  Thus, I have decided to make this an annual tradition. Over the next several weeks, I will be

Irresistible Caramel Sauce

by TT November 19th, 2012| Desserts, Recipes
Last week I wrote about a very delicious apple cake that I had made.  It truly was enjoyable on its own.  Without sauce, the cake was tender and had a nice mix of apples and pecans in each slice.  It was tasty enough that I would want to have

Chocolate Whipped Cream Sundae

by TT Jr. November 14th, 2012| Desserts, Recipes
If you ask me, ice cream does not have a "season".  You can eat it all year long. I don't care if it's winter, I'm still gonna eat it.  It's even better when it is homemade.  I love a decadent sundae the best.  And with all the fixings.  I

Apple Cake

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

Cake Pops

You know the only thing better than cake?  Portable cake.  That is pretty much what cake pops are.  Plus, they take like 30 minutes to make.  One of my favorite cake combinations is vanilla cake with chocolate frosting.  Try making that bite size.  The creation is a cake pop. 

Peanut Butter Cups

If you haven't noticed, I kind of love peanut butter and chocolate...It is a match made in heaven, and I could live off of it.  Well, besides all of the nutrients they are lacking, like vitamins and minerals, but besides that I could.  I have had this recipe with

Fudgy Peanut Butter Brownies

by TT Jr. September 3rd, 2012| Desserts, Recipes
OK, OK.  I know I just did a brownie recipe two weeks ago, but in my defense this recipe is waaaayyyy yummier.  Last night I had an insane craving for peanut butter and chocolate.  My friend, Rachael, who was sleeping over really wanted brownies.  Together we decided to attempt

One Serving Gooey Brownie

by TT Jr. August 22nd, 2012| Desserts, Recipes
The other day I had a real craving for a brownie, but I knew I wouldn't need a whole pan of them.  So I scoured the internet, searching for a single serving browning that you didn't use the microwave for.  I've tried those before, and the texture is waaaayyyyyy
