Orange Chocolate Chip Scones with Vanilla-Orange Glaze

So here’s the thing… I already have a favorite scone recipe. I’ve been open to other types of scones, and have even made these double chocolate banana scones in the past. They were delicious. But nothing can hold a candle to the scone recipe I got from my friend’s grandmother. These come close. I’ll be […]

Fruity Wine Jelly

I work for a local winery in Pennsylvania (Benigna’s Creek Winery), and March is wine trail season for us. During the month of March, our winery bands together with 12 other wineries to encourage customers to get out there and taste some wine. Most of the wineries have wine and food pairings each weekend, which […]

Easy Apple Tart with Toasted Pecans

Fall is here and so is apple season. There are so many great kinds of apples available for eating and baking. Here at The PinterTest Kitchen, we like to make apple crisp, applesauce pancakes, apple pear scones, caramel apple cookies… pretty much anything with apple in it! We posted a huge list of apple recipes […]

Caramel Apple Cookies

Okay, time for a truth bomb: While we love pumpkin here on The PinterTest Kitchen (so much we did an entire pumpkin recipe round-up last year), that is not the top flavor of fall for me. In fact, I put it third on the list, behind my two favorites, tied for first place: apple and […]

Key Lime Pie Cheesecake Cupcakes

When a recipe mashes up two things I love, I get excited…but this one includes THREE! Key lime pie? Yum! Cheesecake? Yum! Cupcakes? YUM! My mom, Sharon, made these cupcakes and few times, and I decided to try my hand at them. They are so good that I literally have to hide them so they […]

A Taste of Summer: Apricot Peach Pie

If you blink, you’ll miss apricot season. Which is a gosh darn shame because I just hear the word apricots and my mouth starts watering. Ooooh, do it again. Apricot, apricot, apricot! My favorite apricot recipe to date is Apricot Peach Pie. The tart, apricot flavor is to die for and makes the entire house […]

White Chocolate Blackberry Cheesecake Cupcakes (with Oreos!)

  How much to I love cheesecake? I have an entire board on Pinterest called “Cheesecake Recipes: Because I’m in Training to Become a Golden Girl.” But let’s face it. Cheesecake is a big ole pain in the butt to make. Will it set up right? Will it crack? Will it be creamy? Cheesecake is […]

Apple Pear Scones

Every home chef has to have at least a couple of recipes up their sleeve that never fail to impress. We become known for these recipes, and when all else fails, we can whip up a batch and all else is forgiven, no matter how crispy and black dinner may be. For me, that “up […]

Easy Blackberry Cobbler

My husband, Jim and I were eating breakfast one weekend morning. I flipped the channel to the food network and Ree Drummond was on. I enjoy watching her show, The Pioneer Woman, because she makes recipes that you usually have the ingredients in your pantry. Good food doesn’t have to be complicated, and it can […]

Light and Fresh Strawberry Pie (Sugar-Free)

Here in Pennsylvania strawberry season is upon us.  A few years ago my husband planted a small patch of strawberries. And of course I do all the weeding of the patch, picking the berries and making something with berries. Now they are ripe and I need to make something with them. Last year I posted […]

Light Peach Pie

When peaches are in season, this Light Peach Pie recipe is refreshing and easy to make. I pinned a version of this recipe from Danielle Kronmuller, who pinned it from Taste of Home. The original recipe is for a light strawberry pie which I’ve also made before, but I just happened to have some fresh […]

Raspberry Coffeecake Muffins

These muffins are the best muffins ever. I’ve tried a lot of recipes for muffins and you can throw most of them away. This recipe makes muffins that are moist and flavorful, and you can customize them for your family. I pinned a version of this recipe from Lori Manning. This was originally a Barefoot […]

Oh So Easy Blueberry Snack Cake

I didn’t find this recipe on Pinterest but this is a quick and easy cake that I have been making for a long time. I found a version of this recipe in the 2004 Taste of Home Annual recipe book and also found a version online. It is easy, just like the chocolate muffins Allison […]

Crispy Apple Crisp with Extra Crisp

Y’all, I am not lying when I say this is one of the best desserts of all time. I know that my last recipe was so easy it made you want to kiss someone, but this apple crisp is so good that you will NOT want to kiss someone. Because if you’re kissing, you can […]
