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!

You guys. Seriously. This No Bake Butterscotch Pudding Pie is one of the BEST PIES I’VE EVER EATEN. The other day Jordan was asking for a cookie after lunch (it’s like a default response when she stops chewing at any meal) and I told her no, because she’d already had a Frappuchino and because...
