German Chocolate Cupcakes

I’m the go-to girl in the neighborhood when someone is having a birthday… but I hate making cake! Okay, maybe hate is a strong word, but even though I have some favorite cake recipes (like this carrot cake) I usually prefer making cupcakes instead. This time around, my neighbor was turning 40 and his wife […]

Mammy Heckert Caramel Icing Cookies

You know those recipes that are handed down in your family from generation to generation? This is one of our family’s oldest recipes! Mammy Heckert (my great grandmother) was known for these homemade caramel icing cookies. So much that our family simply calls these Mammy Heckert Cookies. Actually, the whole town where we grew up knows […]

Red, White, and Blue Honey Taffy #CookoutWeek

Honey Taffy is super easy to make… there’s only one ingredient. Today is the last day of #CookoutWeek, and I wanted to create something red, white, and blue that is perfect for the 4th of July. Our sponsor The French Farm sent me some delicious honey, which is perfect for this recipe. I added in […]

Salted Caramel Marshmallow Ice Cream (No Churn!) #CookoutWeek

This recipe is sponsored by The French Farm. All opinions are my own. When I was a kid, I went to Girl Scout day camp every single summer. I was so dedicated to it, that I once hid a broken hand from my mom so that I could still go to camp on Monday morning […]

Blackberry Lime Mermaid Yogurt Pops #CookoutWeek

This spring, when everything was “unicorn,” I said to Jeffrey that I bet everything would be mermaid-colored by summer. Boy was I right on that one! It’s one of the biggest trends in food, fashion, and beauty. Aaaaaand… I kinda love it. I’m jumping on the mermaid trend! I live in Norfolk, which is the […]

M&M Cookies

If you know anything about us Boyer women, you know we love a good cookie recipe. Growing up, my mother (Sharon) often had some sort of homemade cookies in the house… even if they were hidden away so we didn’t attempt to eat them all in one sitting. It was actually pretty rare to have store bought cookies […]

Strawberry and Fig Jam Crescents

After my recipe for Cardamom Date Scones was such a smashing success in this house, I’ve been itching to use cardamom in more recipes. I’m on a cardamom kick! Which is not as crazy as some of the other kicks I’ve been on. It’s about a 7 out of 10 on the “Allison’s Ingredient Kicks” […]

DIY Unicorn Frappuccino with No Added Sugar #RecipeMakeover

The Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino might just be a passing trend, but when I saw the amount of sugar in the drink, I knew I had to do a DIY version for #RecipeMakeover! This week on the blog, we are making over some of your favorite recipes to be just a little better for you – […]

Sugar-Free Carrot Cake with Honey Cream Cheese Icing #RecipeMakeover

I absolutely love carrot cake… but I’m also very picky about it. I usually don’t order carrot cake when we’re eating at a restaurant because you never know what you’re going to get. Is it going to be dry or have a stringy texture? Is it going to be so filled with nuts and raisins […]

Chocolate Key Lime Pie

Everything is better with chocolate, right? I have to admit, I was skeptical about chocolate with key lime pie at first. I do love chocolate-dipped frozen key lime pie, though, so I though, “Why not give it a try?” I’m so glad I did! Everything is better with chocolate. This just proves it. What makes […]

Mini Blood Orange and Chocolate Trifles

Orange and chocolate is one of those timeless combinations that always seems to work. The tangy brightness of the citrus… the sweet, deep flavors of the chocolate… is your mouth watering yet? My email inbox is overflowing, often with requests from food brands to try their products. More often than not, I say no, simply […]

“Pot of Gold” Miniature Rainbow Cupcakes

I’m so darn proud of these cupcakes. Have you ever tried a recipe that you were sure was going to be a flop? That’s how I felt with this recipe. I was sure that the rainbow batter was going to blob together and create an ugly gray mess. Boy, was I wrong! SUPER WRONG! These […]

50+ Dessert Recipes with Bailey’s Irish Cream

Bailey’s Irish Cream is my favorite liqueur of all time! When I turned 21, the very first drink someone bought me was a “buttery nipple” shot, which part butterscotch schnapps and part Bailey’s. Yum! With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, I wanted to find some new recipe ideas. Every year, our street is […]

Mini Pecan Pies

True story: I used to hate pecan pie. I’ve never been a fan of nuts in my baked goods. When I was very young, my mammy (grandmother on my dad’s side), made a berry pie and I told her that it was good, but she should leave the nuts out of it next time. Of […]

Moon Pie Cupcakes

Every year for Valentine’s Day, I make my fiance Jeffrey some kind of special dessert. Well this year, I decided to do something different. We went to the grocery store, and I let him pick any ingredient in the whole store for me to make his Valentine’s Day dessert. As you can imagine if you […]
