Step aside, cinnamon, chocolate chips, and raisins. (Wait – did I really just say that about three of my favorite things?
Temperature plays such a key role in my enjoyment of desserts. I like my lemon bars frozen, my pies reheated in the oven, and my chocolate chip cookies popped in the microwave for 10 seconds.
I first realized how well mashed potatoes work in a pie when I made my maple bacon potato pie. I love sweet potatoes as much as the next person (OK – a whole lot more than the average person), but I strongly believe that there should be a place at the table for Idaho® Potato pies as well.
I didn’t go halfway with any of the flavors in these lemon ginger power cupcakes. The cupcakes contain both lemon juice and lemon zest and both fresh ginger and ground ginger – and the frosting has lemon and ginger, too!

I am going to go out there and say that syllabub is better than eggnog. I know you are going to call me on the whole personal preference thing.
I love cheesecake-topped brownies and black-bottom cupcakes, so I thought, “Why not give gingerbread the same cheesecake treatment?
In Jess Touchette’s second contributor post, she shares the fascinating history of frosting and layer cakes.
There’s French toast and then there’s cornbread French toast! Cornbread French toast is so flavorful on its own that you barely need maple syrup – especially when the cornbread contains bacon like mine does!
My newest contributor is Jess Touchette – she’s a librarian and she’ll be sharing well-researched stories of the desserts that you know and love.
