Molten Chocolate Lava Cakes

Years ago when my brother just started dating his wife, he was telling me about how she’s really into making desserts.  He started to describe something that she made for him recently, and he was saying it was the best chocolate dessert he’d ever had.  So, of course that sparked my curiosity.  When I askedRead More

Strawberry Cheesecake Trifle

Lately, I’ve been thinking about different trifles to make.  Several years ago when I couldn’t find a recipe for an Oreo Trifle, I made one up myself…and it was amazing.  So, I’ve been brainstorming about different types of trifles to put together.  As I was thinking about strawberries and cheesecake, the though of having theseRead More

My grandmother makes a pecan pie every Thanksgiving, so here is a slight twist on this incredible pie, but as individual bars…and with chocolate.
