Chocolate Covered Cherry Biscotti

by Michele Pesula Kuegler February 6th, 2018| Breakfast Dishes, Desserts, Recipes

A candy-themed biscotti that's totally acceptable as breakfast.


What I love most about the biscotti I make is that they have such a lengthy shelf life. Want to ship baked goods to family or friends? These biscotti will be fine, even if it takes a week to get there.

Carrot Cupcakes

by Michele Pesula Kuegler February 1st, 2018| Desserts

Basically, it's carrot cake on the go.




When I wrote this carrot cupcake recipe, I was surprised that it had been four and a half years since I shared my original carrot cake recipe. As I type this, it's been five and a half since I originally posted the

Butternut Squash Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

by Michele Pesula Kuegler January 30th, 2018| Desserts, Recipes

Only one word needed- Yum!


For someone who doesn't eat a lot of dessert, I sure do adore cake in many forms. It's a really tough tossup between carrot cake and traditional wedding cake, as to which is my favorite. Carrot cake has the wonderful flavors of carrot and

Chocolate Bottom Macaroons

Sweet coconut and chocolate- what's not to like?




With Tuesday's publication of a macaron recipe, today is a fitting day to republish my macaroon recipe. With only one letter difference, these two cookies are often confused. They do start with a similar egg white base, but from there

Raspberry Buttercream Macarons

So light and tasty, you'll want to eat them by the dozen!


I know, macarons have been all the rage for a few years, and here I am posting my first macaron recipe. Call me behind the times if you'd like. I don't mind.

It's taken me some time to

Pear Cake

The other weekend we were expecting an overnight snowstorm.  As we weren't sure how much snow we would get, we decided to be stocked and ready for a Sunday spent indoors.  To end our snowy day we would enjoy a freshly baked dessert, pear cake.

Cake is one of my favorite

Bourbon Sauce #2

On Monday, I shared my ridiculously easy recipe for Eggnog Ice Cream.  While the ice cream is delicious in its own right, a simple ice cream such as this really begs for toppings.  Of course, my kids would prefer to top their ice cream with hot fudge, but that

Eggnog Ice Cream

On Christmas Eve, we celebrate with a six-course meal.  I know, that does sound like a lot of food.  However, the original plan my husband had suggested was a ten-course meal.  After a little discussion, it was determined that six was far better than ten.  With the meal eaten over

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
