Lemon Cake with Strawberry Frosting

I had just gotten my new Food Network Magazine when two of my friends texted me about plans for the weekend.  After some figuring out details, we had and idea of what to do that Saturday.  The result was three beautiful, delicious cakes.  We mixed and matched the recipes from different places to make the…


Red Velvet Cupcakes

These cupcakes I’ve been making for a very long and they never disappoint.  This recipe is from Food Network, although I think they took the recipe down from their website.  The recipe is a bit more unhealthy than most cupcakes so I have some notes at the bottom to help make your cupcakes just a…


Coconut Cheesecake

I made this cheesecake for Easter.  It was deliciously creamy and coconut-y.  It was relatively simple to make and served a lot of people.   One note I do have is to use small pieces of coconut.  I used rather large pieces and they were a little chewy.  I got this recipe from the Food Network…


Cranberry Orange Scones

Since I hadn’t had time to bake anything for a while, I decided to make these scones for breakfast.  They were relatively easy to make and looked beautiful.  Of course, they also tasted good.  I got this recipe from my Food Network magazine, but they also have it online here. The recipe did make more…


Raspberry Cheesecake

It was my friend’s birthday a couple of weeks ago and so I decided to make her raspberry cheesecake.  Everything seemed to be in my favor that day because I had just gotten my issue of Food Network Magazine and inside was a recipe for a delicious raspberry cheesecake.  This cheesecake was a bit more…


Lemon Meringue Pie

A little while ago, my cousin Tiffany came to visit.  We both love to bake, so of course we had to make something.  While I cooked dinner, she found a recipe for a lemon meringue pie from notsohumblepie.blogspot.com.  After dinner, we made the pie and put it into the oven.  It didn’t take very long…


Salted Pretzel Marshmallow Bars

These treats were very simple to make and very yummy to eat.  They were a bit sweet despite the pretzels so if you don’t like things that are too sweet, I wouldn’t advise making these.  Other than that, they were delicious, and they were super fun to make!  I got this recipe from Food Network’s…


Homemade Cake Mix

Most people are too busy to make cupcakes without the aid of cake mix.  So, seeing that so many people use the fake stuff at the store, I decided to make my own with natural ingredients to help improve the taste of cupcakes made with cake mix.  You could also use the cake mix in…


Doughnuts

Ever since I got a deep fryer I have been wanting to make doughnuts.  I tried to make fries a couple of times, but those were way too greasy.  Doughnuts however, were delicious the very first time I made them.  Doughnut holes were much easier to make than doughnuts were, because they didn’t fall apart…


French Macaroons

French macaroons are something I’ve been wanting to try for a while.  They are supposedly extremely difficult to make which was proven to be true.  Some of the macaroons turned out okay, but of them were all cracked.  The recipe also did not make 36 as stated but instead made 24 although this may have…
