Addictive Carrot Cake

“Wow, this carrot cake is addictive. Thanks to the addition of applesauce, the cake is tender. It has just a hint of cinnamon. We think finely grating the carrots adds not only texture, but a lot of moisture so take the time to finely grate them. Pineapple adds a lot of sweetness to the moist cake but doesn't alter the carrot cake flavor. The fluffy cream cheese frosting is the perfect complement to the cake! Delicious any time of the year, but a fantastic spring or Easter dessert.” - Kitchen Crew

Grandmama’s Chocolate Chess Pie

Strawberries and Cream Coffee Cake with Vanilla Cream Cheese Glaze

With less than 10 minutes of work you can have this coffee cake in the oven and be impatiently waiting for it to bake while your house fills up with the irresistible aromas of baking strawberries and vanilla!” - Kevin

Heavenly Hash Brownies

“Every year when Easter comes around, I just about break down the door to the store to get to those dad-blasted Heavenly Hash Eggs. You know… the marshmallow and almonds covered in chocolate? I am totally addicted to those things. I attribute my obsession to my mother, bless her heart. She put those things in my Easter basket every year. Well, she and I put our heads together to bring y’all these delicious Heavenly Hash Brownies. They are an ooey-gooey mess of deliciousness, but I promise they are worth the mess… and the calories.” - Stacey

Cherry Cream Pie

“This is more of a cherry custard pie than a cherry cream pie, but it's quite delicious. We loved the creamy vanilla custard with the cherry topping. Adding almond extract and a little sugar brightens up the cherry topping making it taste fresher. The custard layer is so delicious, you can try it with different toppings too (blueberry would be yummy). This is a fantastic old-fashioned dessert.” - Kitchen Crew

Gooey Butter Bars from Scratch

Just a few extra steps (and a couple minutes more) and you have an old fashioned over the top dessert bar that tastes like it came straight from Grandma’s table.” - Christy
