Chocolate Cream Cheese Surprise Cupcakes

No “pinspiration” today – this is a recipe straight from my childhood. Growing up, these chocolate cream cheese surprise cupcakes were one of my favorite treats. Forget any Tastykake or Hostess cupcake out there. These are like, ten times better than anything you can buy. Plus, there’s a secret surprise in the middle. Who doesn’t […]

Homemade Pad Thai

Y’all, I think have a new favorite recipe. This homemade Pad Thai recipe rocks. There’s an authentic Thai restaurant about three miles from my house, and I love going there to get Pad Thai. The only problem? It’s a little pricey. Other restaurants in my area may Pad Thai too, of course, but the vast […]

Allison’s Lick-Your-Plate Potato Salad

Crispy Apple Crisp with Extra Crisp

Y’all, I am not lying when I say this is one of the best desserts of all time. I know that my last recipe was so easy it made you want to kiss someone, but this apple crisp is so good that you will NOT want to kiss someone. Because if you’re kissing, you can […]
