Strawberry White Chocolate Mousse Crepes

I am  a sucker for just about anything strawberry. We have reached that time of year where I start to crave all things Spring.  Knowing it it just around the corner makes me anxious for its arrival.  The weather here in Dallas is already starting to get warmer, and when things like strawberries start to become more affordable at the market, even though they are not truly in season, I find I can’t resist.  I need a little spring...

Pecan Chocolate Chip Gooey Butter Cake

Oh baby, it is COLD outside! The Dallas area, and most areas in the Mid-west, are enduring what I am unofficially calling ‘Ice-pocalypse 2011′.

Butter Drop Cookies

I always want to look like I put in the extra effort, even when time is tight. Festive decorated cookies are all well and good, but sometimes there is absolutely no time to get fancy.  That makes this recipe an absolute treasure because you get bright, festive cookies that taste light, buttery, and delicious.  Of course, these are not just for the holidays.  Rolled in red and blue sugar these are great for the 4th of July.  If you...
