Pioneer Woman's Blackberry Cobbler |

The Pioneer Woman sure knows her stuff. Ree’s blog was one of the first I started following back in the day when I began to teach myself how to bake. That was like, 10 years ago now?

I’ve tried so many of her recipes, and when her first book came out I bought it and waited in line to get it signed when she came to town. I’ve met her a few times since then, and I can tell you that she is just as kind, hilarious, and down to earth in person as she is on her website.

When I first came upon her blackberry cobbler recipe I knew I had to try it. That was many years ago and it’s been a family favorite ever since. >> More


Homemade brownies, berries, and whipped cream layer together to make this super simple summertime dessert.

Brownie Berry Trifles |

This recipe was developed in partnership with the American Butter Institute.

The thermometer has been there for weeks, but today the calendar finally caught up. Summer is here! And for me summer sweets should be all about quick and easy, light, and fun. Bonus points if there’s fresh summer fruit involved.

I’m such a berry gal. Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries— I love them all. And they’re all currently stocked in my fridge. I just can’t get enough!

These brownie berry trifles are my kind of summer treat. Fudgy brownies + whipped cream + berries. Such a great combo! >> More

So what better way to share a banana split at home, than with this ice cream pie? >> More
