Nutella Chocolate Cake
T is absolutely crazy about Nutella. We go through at least two jars every week. In an effort to keep him well-stocked in Nutella goodness, I searched around and found this recipe!
This Nutella Chocolate Cake is a delicious combination of an incredibly moist chocolate cake and a sweet, delicious Nutella icing, all covered in chocolate ganache. Delish! So I mentioned Monday that I spent the weekend with my cousin who was due with her baby any day.
The Pioneer Woman’s Sheet Cake Recipe
So I didn’t know that the sheet cake was so incredible. I had NO IDEA! After all, it isn’t really pretty. But one day I saw Ree Drummond fixing it up and I started to wonder if it could be as good as it sounded. I checked it out online. I read the reviews. I became convinced it should be sampled. And then I made it and fell in love with it. Here you go. You’re welcome!
The Cast of Characters. Very basic ingredients-perfect for us Pioneer Women who live out in the country and nowhere near dutch processed cocoa, Madagascar vanilla extract, or creme fraiche. All you need for this wonderful cake is sugar, flour, salt, butter, cocoa, baking soda, buttermilk, eggs, vanilla, powdered sugar, milk, and pecans.

If you’ve had Better Than Sex Cake you have some idea of how amazing this cake could be. But this recipe is the ultimate version of Better Than Sex Cake. Obviously, you have to try it.
Better than Anything Cake (aka Better than Sex Cake) made with homemade caramel sauce and fresh whipped cream. This recipe is one of our favorite cakes, ever!

Chocolate Truffles In Any Flavor
Truffles. I really love truffles. Mr. Wonderful and I discovered some crazy amazing flavors when we last visited Asheville. Among my favorites were the lavender and the orange liqueur. But I confess that I didn’t find a single truffle I didn’t adore. And I sampled quite a few.
These homemade chocolate truffles are extra creamy with the addition of butter. After mixing the 4 ingredients together, let the mixture set in the refrigerator, then roll into balls.

I love everything about Fall. I honestly wish it was the longest season. This year, we really want to take advantage of the cool nights out at the fire pit. These are my favorite nights. Thick sweaters, warm blankets, a crackling fire, the bite to the air, the s’mores, and the fall flavors in every cup. Here are my Top Fifteen Favorite Fall Drink Recipes to serve to your friends and family as you gather to celebrate the best of the seasons.
So, I have been crazy about my Instant Pot ever since it first emerged from its packaging. We have prepared everything from lobster tails to cheesecake in there and I long ago lost count of how many Instant Pot Recipes have been tried in our kitchen. Our family is a busy family and we use our Instant Pot more often than we don’t. It saves so much time and with the right recipes, it delivers flavors that taste like you have worked all day tenderly preparing the dishes. Truly wonderful food! All that considered, it was really hard to narrow down our list to our top five favorite Instant Pot Recipes. But we did it. Our family is in agreement that these five recipes win and should be part of your menu planning too.
These Salted Chocolate Caramel Pecan Thumbprint cookies were discovered by T when I told him I was going to do a Christmas Cookie Series on the blog. I tasked him with finding some amazing cookies that would stand out as gorgeous, taste absolutely delicious, and be remembered and craved for every Christmas after their initial bake.
This pie is seriously so easy and so good! I was able to put this together in about twenty minutes. You can’t really mess it up. It’s super easy. Don’t let those lovely layers lead you into believing this one is complicated. It’s not. You don’t even need an oven to make a perfect Chocolate Peanut Butter Layer Pie!
