Chocolate Peanut Butter Torte Where to begin? This is the best cake we’ve posted thus far. Technically it’s the only cake we’ve posted, but who’s being technical? Not me!

Simple Tiramisu For a lazy summer afternoon, tiramisu is the perfect pick-me-up. Its literal translation is pick me up (tira mi su).

Mascarpone can be found in Italian specialty stores usually in an 8-ounce or 17-ounce container. Feel free to use all 17 ounces if purchasing the latter size.

Because most people have turned to liquid soap rather than bar soap I figured there must be a way to convert the cheap bar soap into the expensive liquid soap we all know and love. After I tucked the littles into bed I began my google research and there it was...a wealth of information on the subject. I combined a number of "recipes" into one that works perfect!

Instant Mug o' Mac & Cheese in the Microwave My daughter likes her organic boxed mac and cheese just as well much as the homemade stuff I make in the oven. The other day I went to make her our quick box version for lunch and we were out! I knew it was finally time to try something I’d always thought of but never attempted: making mac and cheese in the microwave. Since she only needed a small portion I knew a mug o’ mac and cheese would be just the right amount for her. I was thrilled when it worked out with my regular microwave — it was so easy!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Mug Cake So I'm pretty much going crazy about this amazing weather. I mean, 80s and sunny in mid-March? YES PLEASE, OBVIOUSLY. But. Nutella Cheesecake Bars The day we made these Nutella Cheesecake Bars did not start out so smooth. Our initial plan was to make Churro Cupcakes, which Kara and I had both been eyeing for months. The cupcakes had lots of steps, which we usually try to avoid, but we made them anyway. We had high expectations and they were a complete and utter flop. In fact we disliked them so much that we immediately tossed them, deciding to not even bother with the frosting.
