Strawberry Coconut Tres Leches Trifle

Summer time to me means relaxing days, hanging with the family, gathering for summer BBQs and trying delicious new recipes. Since it gets so stinkin’ hot here in AZ all the dessert recipes usually have fruit or have some kind of cool element to it. We recently tried a recipe for Strawberry Coconut Tres Leches […]

Lemon Cream Pie Bars

Hi there! Fiona here – stopping in from Just So Tasty. And today I’m sharing these Lemon Cream Pie Bars. They’re a creamy lemon bar with a crunchy graham cracker crust. They remind me of key lime pie – only they’re less tart and the sunshine-y yellow color makes me think of sunshine and warm […]

Fourth of July Rice Krispies Treats

We recently got together with some friends and I wanted to bring a last-minute treat to share with everyone. The treat I always think of when I have little time is Rice Krispies Treats, because A) I always have the ingredients on hand and B) They are easy and yummy!! To change things up I […]

The weather here is finally warming up which means summer is almost here! While I love baking year-round, sometimes it gets so hot that turning on the oven means our air conditioning never turns off!

Easy Popcorn Balls

Who here has memories of eating delicious, sticky Popcorn Balls when they were younger?! I DO!! In fact, that’s my only memory of them because I feel like they vanished from my life for a good 25 years or so until recently. I saw these sweet treats at a school fair and asked my mom […]

This next recipe is one that we make all the time at home. It’s quick, easy and the kids love them. They’re called Gooey Butter Cookies (aka Cake Mix Cookies). They are made with cake mix and are so moist and butter-y that I have yet to meet someone who didn’t like them.  If you’re […]

Hi, it’s me Lily – again! Today is my last soccer game, and I’m super duper excited. We have won most of our games, and most of the people on my team are at my school so I see them there too. I’ll be sad soccer is ending, but I had so much fun playing! […]

Strawberry Shortcake Bars

Is your family like us in that we never need an excuse to make dessert? 😉 It might be a little worrisome, but it’s pretty upsetting to the kids if there isn’t a dessert after dinner. And I’m not talking about OUR kids. I’m talking about my parents’ kids… The ADULTS! It’s no secret that we have […]

Mini Cherry Cheesecake Cookie Cups

I don’t know about you, but I think foods are just so much more fun when they are served miniature sized.

Best Peach Cobbler Recipe

I love fruit. I love desserts. BUT, I’m not a huge fan of fruit-y desserts. Weird, huh? Fortunately, I’ve gotten better over the years and have started liking fruit-filled goodies, but for the longest time there were only three fruity desserts I would eat: Fruit Pizza, Strawberry Shortcake AND Peach Cobbler. In fact, I’ve never really liked other […]

M&M Cookie Cake

Cookie cakes are the best! You don’t have to cook multiple batches of cookies, they’re great for a party, and it has frosting! How could you not want a slice of this M&M Cookie Cake?! Back in the 90’s when I was still in elementary school, the coolest treat to bring to share with your […]

Hi guys! Last time, I went a whole month without posting something for your sweet tooth. Well, if you know me at all, you know that I prefer sweet over boring, normal, food anyway! So, I decided it shouldn’t be too long before I brought you another yummy Tried and True treat. Although my sister, […]

Berry Cheesecake Salad

I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the warmer temps. Things have definitely started to heat up here in Arizona, and although the weather is practically perfect, we know that the triple digit temps are just around the corner. With that in mind, we are trying to enjoy the outdoors as much as we […]

White Chocolate Lasagna

Hi its me, Lily. How has your week been? Its been really fun for me. Yesterday in PE I got to play with a REALLY big ball. It was so much fun. I even kicked the ball, and it accidentally hit my teacher in her face! She didn’t get mad (which is good!) PE was one […]

Lemon Lasagna

Hey guys! How’s your summer going so far? Has it been flying? Ours is going by so quick and we already start school in a few weeks. Pretty crazy, but the kids are excited. Can’t say I feel the same because I love our time together, but having school starts also means the holidays are […]

Frosted Berry Brownies

Hi there! It’s been a good month since I’ve posted something sweet, and that’s just unacceptable. Today’s tried and true will definitely take care of that! Now, my sister, Tara, and I are firm believers that if it doesn’t have chocolate it’s not a dessert. There are very few exceptions to this rule. Like my […]
