Are you enjoying this wonderful weather? I know I am here in Atlanta. It is not too cold, warm and breezy. I love this time of the year. This time of year calls for a nice and sweet citrus flavor dessert. I made this wonderful Orange Coconut Cake.

Hi Desseritas! Do you guys love peanut butter and jelly sandwiches? I loved it as a child, because my grandmother use to make homemade jam and I would smother my sandwich with nothing but jam and maybe a teaspoon of peanut butter. My grandmother would cut my sandwich in these cute shapes, and of course cutting off the crust. I miss those days. Now as an adult I could care less for it. But as a mom, I never stop making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. When my daughter asked for a snack, I came to the rescue with peanut butter cookies.

Some think because I bake a lot, my kids always eating sweets. Yes, my munchkins are my testers, but they might have piece of cake today, and nothing until Friday. I want to make sure my girls have no cavities, eating healthy, and of course not on a sugar high climbing walls. But my girls can be strict when letting me know how something taste. Last Friday I passed a Krispy Kreme on my way to the grocery store. I wanted so bad a doughnut but I refused to get out of the car because it was too darn cold. So you know what I had on my mind all the way home.

Hi guys sorry for me be MIA. I have been under the weather. Still not feeling up to it yet, so this post would be short. Due to Valentine's I had a lot of strawberries left over that I definitely did not want to go to waste. I had a lot of strawberry ideas, but what hit it for me is when my daughter asked me to buy her the doll Strawberry Shortcake. So of course, I made this wonderful strawberry shortcake.

It is February, the month of love. Valentine's is a few days away and everywhere you turn you see red, hearts, and chocolate. What goes best with love? Chocolate and some booze of course. Which is what brings me to these awesome brownies.

My four year old said "No Mommy can I have shrimp, grits, three eggs, broccoli and pazagna (meaning lasagna) please"? In my mind I was like is this child of mines in her right mind. But I could not do anything but laugh. I replied back and said what about we wash up and come up with something else. Of course we went back and forth about what to give her to eat. Until I got to the point, OK it is either this or this. We finally agreed to pancakes, egg, sausage, and bacon. Mommy wins! Yeah right.
I agreed thinking I have some Aunt Jemima mix in my pantry. Scoring my pantry, not one Aunt Jemima in sight. I could not break my daughter heart and say there is no pancake mix. I had no choice but do what I do best, make from scratch pancakes.
Chocolate Chip Pancakes with Cinnamon Cream

3 tbsp. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
