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!

Gluten-Free Mud Hen Bars

Hey all you Gluten-Free friends! This post is for YOU today. Yes, that’s right. I made Mud Hen Bars and they’re totally gluten-free! Sometimes I feel really sorry for people with food allergies. I mean, how hard must it be to go through life and not be able to eat something? (Especially if they...

Soft Homemade Golden Oreos

I pink puffy heart Golden Oreos. If forced to choose one kind of Oreo, it would be Golden over regular every single day. Now I can make my Golden Oreos at home. They’re soft, they’re sweet, and they’re totally from scratch! Do you watch HGTV? We watch a lot of it. It’s kind of...

Hazelnut Caramel Apple Nachos

Hazelnut Caramel Apple Nachos

It’s almost September which means it’s APPLE time! I absolutely cannot get enough of desserts with apples. And these caramel apple nachos fit right in with that can’t-get-enough statement. Especially because they’re infused with tons of hazelnut and chocolate flavor. When I was a kid I hated peas. They were flavorless, mushy, and green....

Coconut Almonds

Spiced and sweet nuts are my absolute favorite snack at any holiday or party. These Coconut Almonds are my new favorite addiction – savory nuts are coated in sweet coconut. I’m pretty sure they’ll be your favorite new snack too. And they’re the easiest thing to make, so you can have them in no...

Crust & Crumbs 15: Visiting Tillamook

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know I was in Oregon last week, visiting Tillamook. You’ve heard of Tillamook, right? If you live anywhere on the West Coast, you probably just nodded your head and drooled a little bit. If you’re from the mid-west or the east coast, you may recognize the name but...

Cinnamon Roll Pull-Apart Bread

This is one of those recipes that’s been ruminating in my mind for a very long time. Lucky for you, I finally made it. Cinnamon Roll Pull-Apart Bread: like cinnamon rolls, but in a loaf of bread! Oh, and maple glaze. Because, well, duh. Maple! Sometimes I get an idea for a recipe and...

No Bake Pumpkin Dessert

No Bake Pumpkin Dessert

I mean, really. No-Bake layered lush desserts are probably one of the best things ever. They’re amazing in summer when it’s too hot to cook – but they’re a great party dish all year round. Which is why I’ve been itching to make one with pumpkin! As you can probably imagine, I do a lot...

Banana Bundt Cake {with cream cheese frosting}

I think I could eat banana treats for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I’ve got breakfast covered just fine, but I realized recently I’m lacking in the banana-for-dessert department. It was time to remedy that problem, stat. Enter: Banana Bundt Cake with a cream cheese frosting. But since it has bananas I can eat it...

Some days you just need … Rolo chocolate chip cookie cups

Some days you just need a cookie. Some days you need 5 dozen. Some days you also want chocolate and caramel. Those are the days you want these cookies: Rolo Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups. Melty caramel, anyone? When Jordan was about 1, she started talking. At some point that year, we realized she thought her...
