How To Make A Box of Brownies Better… With Wine!

Everyone loves a good brownie. They’re a crowd favorite. Plus, with all the different boxes mixes available today, they’re quick and super easy. But plain ole brownies can be boring sometimes. You can make a box of brownies a little fancier by adding m&ms, pretzels, nuts, or even sprinkles on top. Why not try something […]

Red Velvet Whoopie Pies

We love our red velvet around here. If you haven’t seen them already, we’ve posted iced red velvet cookies and red velvet thumbprint cookies. But today’s recipe takes the cake (no pun intended). They’re annoying to make, but this is the absolutely best red velvet treat out there for those of you who love red […]

Red Velvet Cookies

*Papa Boyer is in the hospital right now getting heart surgery. We’re all praying for a speedy recovery (and planning some healthy recipes for his return). Thoughts and prayers are definitely appreciated.* Any red velvet cookie always deserves a second look from me. Our whole family likes red velvet goodies. This Red Velvet Cookie recipe […]

Banana Oatmeal Cookies

We’ve all had one time or another when we accidentally let some bananas get overripe. Well what do you do then? Throw them out? No way! You could make banana bread again or put them in the freezer to save for later. Why not try something different? I found these banana oatmeal cookies in the […]

Perfect Pumpkin Bread

With the fall season here, I like to make pumpkin bread. I usually get a neck pumpkin and cut it up and cook it until soft. Then I run it through the food mill and have fresh pumpkin puree. The puree can be used for baking or put in the freezer for later use. If […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Butterscotch Rice Krispie Treats

Most kids go crazy for rice krispie treats. I was never crazy about them when I was little. I think it’s because I’m not crazy about marshmallows. But I remember this peanut butter and chocolate kind that I actually did like, but it was discontinued after only a short time. Bummer… Cruising around Pinterest a little while […]

Dark Chocolate Apricot Cookies

Betty Crocker has some great recipes out there. When I started cooking, my mom (Lena) gave me a Betty Crocker cookbook containing all of the basics, almost the same as the one she had when she started cooking. Two years ago, I was in line at the grocery store and I spied Betty Crocker’s Christmas […]

Gooey Chocolate Pudding Cake

We all have certain recipes in our repertoire that are full-proof, that we can come back to again and again because we know they’ll always be good. That’s how I feel about this Gooey Chocolate Pudding Cake. It’s the most forgiving recipe I know. True story: one time, I was half-way through the recipe before […]

50+ Spooky Halloween Recipes…from Pinterest!

It’s now officially October and I no longer have to feel ashamed of obsessing over my October 31 costume or listening to the Nightmare Before Christmas soundtrack on loop. Oh, who are we kidding. I wasn’t ashamed of those things before! :-p Seriously, though, I’ve been pinning recipes and other Halloween projects in anticipation of […]

Pinter-MESS: Lemon Brownies That Went From Bad To Worse

As we’ve learned here at The PinterTest Kitchen before, sometimes a recipe turns out to be a huge Pinter-Mess regardless of how good it sounds or looks. Remember my chocolate and caramel microwave mug cake? or Allison’s nasty jello cookies? Those both were just plain bad. Back when our Mom first signed-up for Pinterest, I […]

Chocolate Cream Cheese Surprise Cupcakes

No “pinspiration” today – this is a recipe straight from my childhood. Growing up, these chocolate cream cheese surprise cupcakes were one of my favorite treats. Forget any Tastykake or Hostess cupcake out there. These are like, ten times better than anything you can buy. Plus, there’s a secret surprise in the middle. Who doesn’t […]

Red Velvet Thumbprint Cookies

I love red velvet. I love cookies. Oh and did I mention I love white chocolate too? This recipe for red velvet thumbprints seemed like an obvious choice to test out. Plus it’s not your normal, everyday chocolate chip cookie. It’s something that’s a little different and out of the ordinary. The best part is […]

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 […]

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cake Mix Brownies

I’m a fan of easy cake mix recipes, since I’m not as good of a baker as Jess and our Mom (Sharon). Everyone I know loves the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies our family makes, and the Chocolate Pumpkin Muffins I made a few months ago were a big hit. But there’s always room in the […]

End-Of-Summer Sunshine Wine Cake

If you’re anything like us Boyer women, a recipe calling for wine always sounds like a good idea. This Sunshine Wine Cake is great for your end-of-summer celebration. It’s easy to make and is perfect to make to night before a party. This cake is a joint effort coming from both myself and my mother […]

Peanut Butter Pudding Cookies

Have you tried our mom Sharon’s Chocolate Pudding Cookies from last month? We’ve made those cookies several times since then and they never last long! So when I found a recipe for a peanut butter pudding cookie I wanted to test it out right away. Special thanks to Michael Wurm, Jr. for pinning this so it showed […]
