No-bake Lime Cheesecake Bars |


Every now and then a new recipe comes out of my kitchen and completely rocks my world. Like these lime cheesecake bars. They instantly jumped right into my top 10 where I’m sure they will remain forever and ever.

Gosh, I love my job.

If you love cheesecake and if you love key lime pie then this recipe is just for you. It combines the best of both, with a graham cracker crust and light-as-air, citrusy filling. Plus, it’s all no-bake so these bars are as easy peasy as homemade gets. >> More

Deep Dish Skillet Pizza |

I have a slight obsession with pizza. Though really, who doesn’t? I could probably eat it every day for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And I’m only slightly exaggerating.

But as much of a pizza lover as I am, and even though pizza night is a weekly thing at our house, I hadn’t ever before made a deep dish pizza. This was my very first. And whoa! I’ve been missing out, because this pizza was ahhh-mazing. >> More

White Chocolate-Dipped Tropical Macaroons with Pineapple, Macadamia Nuts and Coconut |

This recipe was developed in partnership with Diamond of California.

You can whisk me away on a tropical vacation anytime. Just give me thirty minutes to shave my legs and pack a swimsuit and I’ll meet you at the airport. I mean really, when does a soak in the sun with a piña colada in-hand not sound like perfection?

But that’s not reality, sadly, and so I’ve decided to bring a little of the tropics into my kitchen with these sunny macaroons filled with coconut, pineapple and macadamia nuts. >> More

Spinach and Cheddar Twice-Baked Potatoes |

Easter means different things to different people, but for me it means coming together with loved ones to celebrate the renewal of life. Winter is over, spring is here! And that right there is reason enough to rejoice.

This weekend I’m looking forward to spending time with my husband’s family. We’ll eat, we’ll laugh, and we’ll enjoy some sunshine and warm fresh air while we watch the little ones hunt for Easter eggs. And then, truth be told, we’ll probably eat some more.

Those mini Cadbury eggs aren’t going to eat themselves! >> More


Moist and flavorful carrot bundt cake with a surprise cheesecake swirl! It’s one showstopper of a dessert.

Cheesecake-Swirled Carrot Bundt Cake |

You probably don’t know that I’ve been a contributor to for almost 4 years now. It’s been a fun little side job where I’ve had the chance to create a lot of great recipes. Some of my favorites include these cake mix cinnamon rolls, this super simple lemon icebox pie and this slow-cooker strawberry rhubarb crisp.

And now this cheesecake-swirled carrot bundt cake.

It turned out exactly how I wanted and I fell head over heels in love with that first slice. I don’t normally tease my Betty Crocker recipes here on my blog but this one was so great, I just had to share it with you. >> More
