If we go out to eat and Tiramisu’s on the dessert menu it’s almost always my guaranteed pick. Tiramisu is traditionally made with ladyfingers, but I used Angel Food Cake soaked in liquor infused espresso or strong coffee could be used, and then covered in creamy marscapone mixture that’s hard to keep from eating straight […]

How to Grill Pizza

The first time I heard of making pizza on a grill all I could think of was, why would anyone want to do that? Now that I’ve done it more than a few times I can think of several reasons, the first being who wants to heat up an oven to 450°F or higher on […]


We loved this NO BAKE Cookie Dough Cheesecake — it’s made with edible cookie dough and an Oreo crust and is an extra special dessert for the holidays! What is it about cookie dough that everyone loves? I remember as a child consuming my fair share of cookie dough while I was supposed to be […]

Black Iron Skillet Deep Dish Pizza

Earlier in the week, I got a craving for a good deep dish pizza. The fork and knife kind, not the eat-out-of-your-hand sort. But I certainly did not feel like sitting in a restaurant while they cooked one for me. I also remembered that I had some amazing Italian Sausage Marinara in the freezer. BINGO! […]
