When I first began my journey in the cooking world, I bought a Betty Crocker’s Cookbook. It is one of my prized possessions. Inside was a recipe that I thought was pure magic. Hot Fudge Pudding Cake which was my inspiration for Cranberry Orange Pudding Cake.
To this day I still love and use my orange covered 1973 version of the Betty Crocker’s Cookbook. The binding is cracked, the front and back covers are about to fall off, but when I am looking for a time-tested recipe, its the first place I look. Continue reading “Cranberry Orange Pudding Cake”
Halloween is next week, and everyone needs to make a special treat to celebrate “All Hallows’ Eve.” Halloween Mummy Cookie Balls are a super quick and easy treat for all your little monsters.
The folks at Baker’s have these new cookie ball kits that are the bomb!! Cookie Ball Kits by BAKER’S Premium Chocolate create deliciously indulgent cookie balls in just 10 minutes without ever turning your oven on!
Each kit includes pre-measured cookie crumbs, sprinkles and a bar of BAKER’S Semi-Sweet Chocolate. There are several to chose from, and each has a unique taste and style. I have made two of the flavors and both are terrific!
Simply add cream cheese to cookie crumbs, roll into bite-sized balls, dip in melted chocolate. Each kit also comes with sprinkles, but I saved those for another day.
I chose the white chocolate kit because……well Mummys are white. I did need to have extra melted white chocolate for the drizzle as the kit has just enough to coat the cookie balls. Plus of course googly eyes, no Mummy is complete without them!
Mummy’s are easy to decorate since there is no rhyme or reason to their raggedy outfits.
Make the cookie balls according to the package directions. Melt extra white chocolate to make the Mummy rags. No fancy equipment is needed, just a plastic bag with a corner snipped off.
Drizzle the coated cookie balls with the melted chocolate and place the googly eyes on top and you have Halloween Mummy Cookie Balls!
Quick, easy and super cute!! Happy Halloween!

Over the past summer, Tim and I attended two weddings. Weddings have cake right??? Wrong!!! Where was my slice of white, almondy, perhaps filled with raspberry filling cake?? Apparently I would have to make it myself……. Traditional Wedding Cake for Two ……because I wanted wedding cake damn it!!!!!
These days weddings may have a small cutting cake, but the trend is cupcakes, or dessert bars…..what?????? OK, call me old-fashioned, but I want there to be a gigantic white cake, with a bubbly fountain, and a bride and groom perched on top. The kind that requires a few of the brides friends trying to figure out how to cut said cake.
Since we were not invited to those kinds of weddings, I wanted to make a cake to satisfy my wedding cake yearning. One that would taste like my visioned wedding cake. Continue reading “Traditional Wedding Cake for Two”
