Nutter Butter- Peanut Butter Pie If you hadn’t heard already, our food blogging friend Jennie lost her husband Mikey last week.
When I was young and poor, before Jimmer and I got married, we used to entertain ourselves by spending hours in used book stores.
I always get asked the same question over and over again - "what do you with all your baking?" Well, I usually bake on Saturdays so my husband and I have something for dessert that night. Anything we don't eat either goes to friends on Sundays, or my co-workers on Mondays.
These are the most addictive baked good I've made in a long time. Not that a lot of other things I've baked haven't been delicious but these were just deadly.

Chocolate cake and I have had a very interesting romance.
There’s something about layer cakes that always brings me great comfort–from both making them and eating them. To me, layer cakes are baked bliss, truly.
