Cheesecake Swirled Brownies

Share

How many of my boys eat these? 2/4, only 50%. Two of them claim they don’t like cheese, so they won’t go near them. I tried to explain that these don’t taste like the cheese that they claim they don’t like, but they weren’t buying it. I say, more for the rest of us!

These brownies […]

One of my sons is a huge dairy fan. He loves milk, yogurt and things made with cheese like macaroni and cheese, grilled cheese, cheese quesadillas, etc. He saw me looking at this recipe the other day and he begged me to make it. When I looked at the recipe I found that it was […]

Peppermint Cream Squares

Share

I made these just before Christmas for the boys and they LOVED them. I have one son who doesn’t like cheese at all, and he can usually sense cheese in anything. Not these. He was so focused on the mint flavor, which he loves, that he totally missed the cream cheese.

You need to find soft […]

Banana Bars with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

Share

I’ve made these a couple of times now and they are unbelievably good. I love banana bread and I really love frosting (my girlfriend Lisa and I used to buy white frosting and eat it straight from the can when we were roommates. I’m kind of horrified by the thought now, considering that it’s loaded […]

Cream Cheese Brownies

This is my new favorite dessert.   I have never had a better cream cheese brownie in my entire life.  I especially love them cold.  Straight from the freezer is best, although they’re delicious at room temperature as well.   One of my sons informed me that this is the best dessert I have ever made.  I […]

Red Velvet Cupcakes

I made these for a Sunday night dessert recently.   The boys loved them.   I had only ever had a red velvet cupcake once before in my life, and I was always intrigued by them.  I was always surprised that although the cupcakes look red, they’re actually chocolate.   A tangy chocolate, but chocolate.

They’re really easy to […]

Fresh Strawberry Muffins

Share

I love summertime because of the fresh produce that’s so readily available. Although strawberry season is now over here in the Northeast, I still buy them for the boys. We recently bought a big box and the boys weren’t eating them fast enough, so I decided to cook with them. […]

Peanut Butter Cream Pie

I was in Costco with the boys the other day and David’s Cookies was there selling pies. We tried many of them, and the boys really loved the peanut butter pie. I thought it was just ok, so we didn’t buy one, but when I tried it I was reminded […]

Irish Cream Caramel Cheesecake

Charles and I went to our book club meeting on Sunday night, which always includes a potluck dinner, and I was responsible for dessert.  I brought this cheesecake, and in the event that someone didn’t like cheesecake, I brought a batch of these lemon squares as well. Charles snapped a picture of […]
