Sometimes the best recipes are the older ones.” - Catherine

Strawberry Shortcake Trifle

Strawberry Shortcake Trifle

“This was an invention based on a friend's request for both brownies and s'mores. It is very rich and gooey, but oh so yummy.” - Crystal
Peachy Keen Bars

Peachy Keen Bars

“This simple dessert is a cross between peaches and cream and a peach cobbler in bar form. They're sweet, creamy, and soooo good. Easy to make, you can throw them together in no time. The bars have a crust layer, that's topped with a sweet cream cheese filling and peaches on top of that. On top, there's a sweet crumb layer. This a great dessert for any time of the year, but would be perfect for summer parties. The recipe makes 12 very generous bars that are pretty rich and can be cut into smaller pieces if you needed to.” - Kitchen Crew

Banana Bread Chocolate Chip Cookies

Banana Bread Chocolate Chip Cookies

“These are so very good! I was able to get over 4 dozen when using a 1-1/2" cookie scoop. They are moist and delicious. I used regular sized chocolate chips as I had that on hand, and the walnuts. The batter was very sticky, so a little challenging to form the balls. Will definitely be making these for future events!” - Marcy
Family Savvy Famous Strawberry Brownies

Family Savvy Famous Strawberry Brownies

“These strawberry brownies are everything and more... we see why they're famous. They are rich, gooey, and full of strawberry flavor. The glaze on top makes them even richer and is the perfect touch. This is a quick and easy dessert everyone will rave about. You'll find the batter for these strawberry brownies is pretty thick. We found it easiest to pat it into the pan. This recipe is quickly going to become a family favorite.” - Kitchen Crew
Fruit Crisp

Fruit Crisp

“This is a fast and easy dessert! Everyone thinks I spent all day putting it together. Little do they know how easy it is and of course I will never tell.” - Debbie
My Chocolate Pie

My Chocolate Pie

“This chocolate pie has such an intense chocolate flavor... so good. Fantastic for a holiday pie but easy enough to bring to a potluck, this pie is delicious and beautiful when served. Using the different types of chocolate, amps up the chocolate flavor. No one will ever guess this started with a boxed pudding. Using 4 egg whites creates a tall meringue that easily covers the pie. Grating Reese's peanut butter cups on top, add a hint of peanut butter to every bite without being overpowering.” - Kitchen Crew
Blueberry Strawberry Buckle

Blueberry Strawberry Buckle

“Oh yes! This was the perfect Summer dessert for serving after having a family BBQ recently. I have a freezer full of assorted fruits from a farmers market so I decided to make this. Not one crumb left, hahaha...perfect.” - Sherry
Easy Crescent Dough Lemon Bars

Easy Crescent Dough Lemon Bars

“The butter, lemon curd, juice, and sugar can all be tweaked to your liking. Use more butter if you want a richer baked good or less if you want it more bread-like. I have used a half-pound of butter before... very rich! You can also use Nutella, jams, other curds, types of butters, add cream cheese alone or together, etc. as fillings.” - Amber
Italian Love Cake

Italian Love Cake

“Oh my goodness... there is a lot of yumminess in this cake. It's cool and creamy but rich at the same time. The ricotta mixture that bakes on top of this cake really makes this special. It changes the entire texture of the cake, making it almost like a less dense cheesecake. Light and fluffy, the pudding topping is tasty and not as rich as traditional frosting. The cake is rich so a lighter topping is perfect. We know the title makes you think of Valentine's Day, but this is the perfect summer cool dessert.” - Kitchen Crew
Hawaiian Dream Trifle

Hawaiian Dream Trifle

“I love the combined flavors of pineapple, toasted coconut, and macadamia nuts. I combined these flavors with angel food cake and coconut cream pudding for a light ‘tropical’ dessert.” - Susan

Death by Oreo Cupcakes

“Best cupcakes ever! Made them for my granddaughter for her baby shower and they were snapped up.” - Terry
Great Grandma's Coconut Cream Pie

Great Grandma's Coconut Cream Pie

“Be prepared to have no leftovers when you serve this fantastic coconut cream pie. It's light, fluffy, and super creamy. Perfect for a holiday dessert but easy enough to serve when company is coming for dinner. We opted to lightly toast the coconut and highly suggest taking the extra step. So good!” - Kitchen Crew
Cream Cheese Cake Mix Cookies

Cream Cheese Cake Mix Cookies

“Oh my gosh, these are good and so easy. Use your imagination. I stumbled upon this recipe after realizing just how many cake mixes I had in my pantry. I love the flavor the cream cheese gives it. I'm a chocolate chip fiend, so I used a Duncan Hines French Vanilla cake mix and a small package of chocolate chips.” - Sherry
Blueberry Cake With Vanilla Butter Sauce

Blueberry Cake With Vanilla Butter Sauce

“Fantastic!!! I just made this using a 8x8 pan, I substituted sour cream for the milk and added a half cup of dried cranberries in addition to the cup and a half of fresh blueberries. It’s delicious!!” - Dave
Mom's Fresh Banana Cake

Mom's Fresh Banana Cake

“My mom made this recipe 100's of times while growing up. It is so moist and good. Her secret was in the bananas. The night before she went to make this she would put 3 or more bananas in the blender and puree them. Then she would let them sit all night in the refrigerator, sometimes two nights. The banana puree would be dark and fruity-smelling. She would add that to the cake batter and her cake would be perfect and moist every time!” - Angela
