Dorothy Kern

I am a wife and mother and amateur baker. I've loved to bake since I was a little girl in my mom's kitchen. I love trying out new recipes or attempting to edit my favorite recipes to fit my mood. The "Crust" has always been my favorite part (whether it's a pie crust or a cookie crust or...you get the idea). Enjoy reading and hearing about all my cooking and baking adventures!

Chocolate Monkey Bread

Chocolate Monkey Bread

If there is one indulgent breakfast I can’t get enough of, it’s monkey bread. Then I made chocolate monkey bread and all bets were off. I realized last week that I’m a horrible, horrible mother. I mean, I have my good points like making Jordan monkey bread on a whim, but overall, her therapy...

10 Blogs You Should Be Reading #2

Happy Saturday! I’m back today with my second installment of 10 Blogs You Should Be Reading. I am really enjoying doing this series and I wish I could do it every week, because there are so many amazing blogs out there. There are so many that I don’t even know about. If you have...

Chocolate Coconut Cake Roll

Oops… I did it again. I made another cake roll. This one is full of chocolate and coconut. That’s just how I roll. Last weekend I had the perfect Easter recipe planned and ready to make. It was a riff on these cupcakes combined with these muffins. It failed. TWICE. As I sat there...

Cinnamon Roll Baked Oatmeal

I’m super excited for this post today because I am now totally head over heels for oatmeal-as-a-breakfast. If you know me, that’s not something I ever really thought I’d say! Introducing Cinnamon Roll Baked Oatmeal. The baked oatmeal that not only tastes good but is a little healthier and portable too! As you might remember...

Coconut Brookies

Coconut Brookies

Sometimes I want to change my name to Brooke, because then I could have the best dessert ever named after me: Brookies. They’re part brownie, part cookie, and all super decadent. Oh, I’m sorry. Your keyboard is full of drool now, isn’t it? If only computer screens were scratch and sniff. Better yet…if only computers...

Well hello my friends! Happy Saturday! I’ve been busy lately: I took on TWO other jobs! I’m now a contributor over at Parade’s Community Table AND I’m one of the newest eBay influencers (you can follow me on eBay if you’re into that sort of thing). {That’s right – eBay has blogging! Who knew?}...

Carrot Cake Pie

Carrot Cake Pie

I know I say this a lot, but this Carrot Cake Pie is seriously one of my favorite recipes ever. One, it’s kind of creative (at least I think it is) and two, it tastes darn good. It’s the perfect pie for any time you want carrot cake…but you want pie too. Easter is...

Skinny Banana Cream Pie Milkshake

Skinny Banana Cream Pie Milkshake

Obviously, I still have pie on the brain. Except that today’s pie is in drinkable form. I turned Banana Cream Pie into a skinny milkshake. You’re welcome. It’s now the middle of March, which means we are going to Hawaii in 3 months. Somehow in the next three months I have to satisfy my...

Orange Vanilla Pancakes with Vanilla Maple Syrup

Remember a few weeks ago when I said I didn’t like pancakes that much? I lied. I hadn’t made these pancakes yet. Now? All I want to eat are pancakes. Preferably ones that are scented with orange and smothered in vanilla maple syrup. OMG. I’ve never been a huge breakfast person. I mean, I love...

S’mores Blondies

Some days you just want an ooey, gooey s’more. Today? Is one of those days. On the ooey, gooey, chewy front, we had something BIG happen last week. Big! Huge! Jordan got her braces off!!!! (You can see her pretty smile here.) She’s had her braces for about 2 1/2 years. (She’s 10, if...
