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!

Lemon Pie Popsicles

Jul 7, 2015
Lemon Pie Popsicles

It’s that time of year: HOT. I want to eat only cold and frozen food, and popsicles fit that bill! One of these days I will stop complaining about how hot it is. (When that day comes, you’ll know it’s winter.) Pretty much all I want to do right now is lay on top of...

Buttermilk Banana Pancakes with Coconut Maple Syrup

Buttermilk Banana Pancakes with Coconut Maple Syrup

I discovered the secret to the perfect pancakes: BUTTERMILK! I know, I’m super slow sometimes. People have been making buttermilk pancakes forever and I’m just now jumping on that train. In my defense, I have a favorite pancake recipe…and I almost never have buttermilk in my refrigerator. That? Is changing as of right now....

Easy Soda Popsicles {and more}

Happy 4th of July! I know, you’ve got SO MUCH to do today, like swimming and grilling and trying not to light yourself on fire. But can I have two seconds? That’s all these Soda Popsicles take! In case you needed a super simple, easy, and fast recipe for this afternoon, I wanted to...

Coca-Cola Sheet Cake

Coca-Cola Sheet Cake

Why do I always feel like making sheet cakes in the summer? Maybe it’s the heat? Or the potlucks? Or just because chocolate sheet cakes are so flipping good? When I was a kid, as you know, we traveled around in an RV for two weeks every summer. We would drive for 2 weeks...

Marshmallow Whipped Cream

Marshmallow Whipped Cream

This Marshmallow Whipped Cream is more than just whipped cream. It’s a dip, a pancake topping, a frosting, and something you hide in the back of the refrigerator so you can eat it with a spoon and not have to share. Something BIG happened in Hawaii last week: I put my head under water...

Butterfinger Ice Cream Pie

Jun 28, 2015
Butterfinger Ice Cream Pie

There’s nothing I don’t love about this pie: Butterfingers, easy homemade ice cream, and an Oreo crust. Doesn’t get much better! I’m back! Did you miss me? (In all honesty, that’s not a fair question. Unless you follow me on Instagram, you probably didn’t even know I was gone.) My family and I spent...

Krusteaz Baker’s Dozen

Krusteaz Baker’s Dozen

Hi all! Happy Saturday! I’m super excited about this post today because I’m announcing my newest partnership! You all know how much I love a great mix, right? As much as I love baking from scratch, using a mix is where my heart lies. I grew up making box cakes, brownies, cheesecakes, and cookies. This...

Cherry Peach Dump Cake

Cherry Peach Dump Cake

Dump cakes are, quite possibly, the easiest potluck recipe ever, which means you need this recipe in your life. Who doesn’t love easy recipes? I discovered dump cakes a few years ago by accident. I think I was googling “what to use canned pie filling in” and a recipe for dump cake filled my screen....

Bakery Style Coconut Macaroons

Bakery Style Coconut Macaroons

I’ve finally done it: I found the perfect Coconut Macaroon recipe! I was only 22 when I went to Carmel for the first time. Mel and I went for his 39th birthday. We were dating (but soon to be engaged). The second I stepped foot on Ocean Avenue I was in love. Carmel is one...

Zucchini Pie Bars

Zucchini Pie Bars

Don’t freak out people, I promise you’ll love these. I pinky swear with caramel sauce on top! Jordan is attending four birthday parties this month. FOUR. Everyone is turning 10 so all of them are tweens that love glitter, bling, and Justice For Girls. Have you heard of Justice? It’s a clothing store for...
