Banana Black Bottom Muffins

Have you ever had a black bottom muffin/cupcake? It’s basically a chocolate cake base with a cream cheese cheesecake-like topping and it is definitely a decadent treat. These have some redeeming nutritional value since they have three bananas and we used low-fat cream cheese, but do not be fooled- even though these are acceptable for…

Our Favorite Pizza Crust

As you can tell from our blog, our pizza stone gets quite a workout. We use it at least every week or so because everyone loves pizza and it’s easy. We like to make fun topping combinations frequently, but no matter how great the toppings are, you need a great crust to start with. We…

Grapefruit Olive Oil Pound Cake

One of our aunts makes an olive oil cake that is truly excellent. She’s made a rosemary lemon cake and a fennel cake with a berry compote on top. Each time she’s made it, Leah and I have told ourselves to find a good recipe and make one on our own! Because an olive oil…

White Pizza with Sage, Prosciutto, and Garlic Oil

We’ve been making some repeat recipes (such as chocolate chip cookies and brownies) but a few new recipes as well, including pecan crescent cookies and this oatmeal snack cake. This cake is pretty wonderful….
