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

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

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

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?

Peanut Butter Truffles

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

Vanilla Blueberry Pie Parfait

by Michele Pesula Kuegler May 18th, 2017| Desserts, Recipes

Who knew that blueberries & yogurt could be so delicious?


The word dessert immediately brings to mind treats- a sugar-based item that feeds not only my stomach but also my cravings for something sweet. Whether it be cookies, cake, ice cream, or some other delight, dessert usually screams of

Cinnamon Sugar Bread Pudding

This is the dessert for when you want to indulge fully.


Ok, so I've shared my thoughts on how dessert doesn't have to be indulgent. Now, let me talk about how dessert can be a splurge that is worth every, single calorie. I know that everyone has their own

Lemon Raspberry Tiramisu

by Michele Pesula Kuegler February 10th, 2017| Desserts, Recipes
Although I don't order it often, I do enjoy tiramisu. What I like best about it is its texture- silky mascarpone and tender lady fingers make for a great combination in my book. My husband is less a fan of this dessert because of the chocolate. Although I'm also not

On Wednesday I wrote about the chocolate peanut butter crunchies that I made for my kids, which means that today's recipe is for my husband. There are a few things to know about my husband: he's an adventurous eater, has a passion for horses, and appreciates a pour
