Recently our lives have been pretty hectic. Tracy and I have both been on the go and we've had a lot of extra tasks that we have had to complete. Work for both of us has also been stressful lately. For the past few weeks we really haven't had any time to just do the things we enjoy. Baking is one of those things we haven't really had much time for lately. It is something we both enjoy doing and then it is always fun to share the goodies afterwards. I haven't been able to try anything new and I haven't had any time to make any of my favorites. So I don't have any new recipes to share, but I would like to redirect you to several of my favorites from the delicious treats we have made in the past.
1. Butterfinger Peanut Butter Cake
This rich, moist cake is truly delicious. It has been my favorite cake that we have ever made. The peanut butter cake and the whipped topping frosting with the peanut butter ganache is going to be devoured by your friends and family by the next day.
2. Caramel Pecan Cheesecake
The Cheesecake Factory has nothing on this cheesecake. It is rich and decadent. Plan ahead and give yourself time to make this before a get-together and you will wow anyone!
3. Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting
Until this cake I always thought, "Carrot Cake? Ewwww gross!" Boy, was I wrong. This is a moist and tasty cake and the frosting has just enough sweetness to not be too cream cheesy.
4. Pecan Pie Bars
I have made these for two family and friend gatherings. They are always one of the first items to disappear and I have received numerous compliments both times. They are simple and easy to make, but everyone thinks I put a lot more effort into than I did.
5. Lemon Cookies
This are quick, easy, and delicious! Sometimes you don't want chocolate or vanilla. You want a something a little different with a lightness. These lemon cookies are perfect.
