So, I hear you are looking for a new Lemon Meringue Pie Recipe. This is the best lemon meringue pie around. It is easy to make and this recipe has rich ingredients like condensed milk. This recipe has been in the family for years. It belonged to my great grandmother, Lula Holland, who was born February 6, 1897. Although I never met her, since she passed before I was born, I love her recipes dearly. I was so happy that my Lemon tree in my backyard started producing fruit. I couldn't wait to go pick a few fresh lemons from the tree, so I could start

Hello, my beautiful Sweet Bakers. This past weekend, I really wanted to bake something. It's starting to get chilly here in California. Plus, with the fires going on I thought it was best to stay home and make a little pumpkin pudding. However, I decided to change up the recipe and make Baked Pumpkin Pudding Muffins. Guys they came out amazing! What's even better is that you probably have all the ingredients in your cupboard. When they were baking, the house started smelling like beautiful roasted pumpkin. It truly feels like November. The consistency of the muffins was soft and chewy. It tasted like a little mini

I'm sure you will agree with me that everyone loves a good chocolate chip cookie. I mean what's not to love. The warm cookie coming out the oven with the warm decadent chocolate just oozing out of the cookie. Plus with the crispy edge that I like to my cookies. But have you ever thought about making Chocolate Chip Cookies Without Brown Sugar? Why on earth would you do that was the question I asked myself. But then I got started to thinking that what if you ran out of brown sugar completely. Or you just have a little but not enough to fulfill the recipe. What

As long as I can remember I’ve always had sweet potato pie in my life. I think every last cousin, uncle, aunty, mother and so on know how to make my families famous sweet potato pie recipe. Or as we like to say Blacks Folks Sweet Potato Pie Recipe.   It’s so good. It rich and creamy and perfect especially when it’s still slightly warm. It just melts in your mouth. So I decided to interview my Grandmother because she always used to bake it for me when I was a kid and this is how I was introduced to this amazing sweet potato pie. Below you will

Who stole the cookie from the cookie jar? I said who stole the cookie from the cookie jar? Who me? Yes you, couldn't be, then who? I just loved that nursery rhythm from my childhood. And it made me think of the wonderful Oatmeal Cookie Recipe that I have.   When I was younger I would visit my dear Aunt Bertha and she lived in an old Victorian House that reminded me of the movie Psycho where I was always scared to venture into different rooms thinking something was going to jump out at me. But my imagination just ran wild and I’m sure it was all

Now I don’t like to brag and all but I think I might have landed on the Best Cinnamon Roll Recipe ever. Cinnamon rolls have my two most favorite things bread and cinnamon. No joke:) Even as a kid going to the local mall just smelling the scent of Cinnabons got me so excited that I could care less what dress I was about to buy. All I wanted was that Cinnamon Roll. Fast forward to now instead of spending my money on someone else’s cinnamon rolls I decided to make my own. And man oh man I not sure if this was a good or bad

As long as I can remember my family has always made this Easy Pineapple Upside Down Cake Recipe from scratch. It’s unbelievably good and will satisfy those with a real sweet tooth. I loved as a kid watching my aunt meticulously arrange the pineapples in the cake pan. Every time I would sneakily try to steal a pineapple from the countertop. Unfortunately, I always got caught. I couldn't help myself. I just love pineapples. It’s probably why I love this cake so much. On top of that you have the delightful cherries mixed it in. Oh, the cherries..mmmmm!! I call this cake the Mah Tai of

I was invited to a picnic and I was told to bring a dessert of my choice. My mind begins to race. Would the host prefer cake, a hand friendly dessert or something decantant. WHATTTTT?!?!?!?!?! I decided to go with my tried and true recipe of Sea-Salted Peanut Brittle. Lets be clear, I have made this many times. With my time frame, since I decided at the last minute what I was going to make, I knew this recipe would work. It’s fast and it’s really hard to mess it up. Luckily I pretty much had all the ingredients… well, except for the most important part the
