WOW.  Wooooooooooow.  This is so damn good.  The custard is nice and sweet and super lime-y.  Forget everything you’ve ever known about graham cracker crust, vanilla wafers are the future.  As if a vanilla wafer crust filled with key lime yummy goodness wasn’t amazing enough, it’s topped with a sweet creamy meringue that I brûléed with…

Lemon Glazed Blueberry Muffins

Dark Chocolate Fudge Brownies

These little babies are a dream.  I am not much of a sweets person, but I could eat all of these, no shame.  They are super thick and fudgey, sweet but not overwhelmingly sweet.  Caution: do not consume until you have a glass of ice cold milk.  Consuming brownies without milk will result in delicious…

Cinnamon.  Rolls.  Need I say more?

Oatmeal Cream Pies

These little cream filled sandwiches of heaven don’t even come close to comparing to the Little Debbie’s you grew up on.  The creamy, buttery filling oozes out onto your fingers when you take a bite, leaving little bits of cream for you to eat later.  It truly is the cookie that keeps on giving.  Leave…

Oatmeal Cookies

With this recipe, I promise you will never be deceived into thinking you’re eating chocolate chips, when in actuality you’ve shoved your faced full of shriveled up grapes (unless of course, you decide to add in raisins, then more power to you).  These cookies make me feel warm and fuzzy.  Crisp edges with a chewy,…

Caramel and Dark Chocolate Mousse Tart

This tart combines two of my favorite things: chocolate and butter.  The crust is a spin on my grandmothers Dutch apple pie crust, it is thick and buttery and beyond delicious.  The mousse is rich and creamy and the caramel is sweet and nutty.  I promise this pan of yummy goodness will not disappoint.
