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!

Margarita Bars

May is fast approaching which means three things: Cinco de Mayo, hot summer nights, and margaritas. Or should we make that margarita bars?

Marionberry Swirl Pancakes

You guys. It’s Saturday. That means it’s PANCAKE time!! Have you ever heard of a marionberry? No? You’re not alone. Until I visited Harry & David last year I had no idea either.

Easy Tiramisu Mousse

mThis Easy Tiramisu Mousse contains my favorite part of the Tiramisu: the mousse! I’m all about the mousse (no cake). Watching a group of food/dessert bloggers eat dessert at a restaurant is like watching vultures attack. It’s hysterical. But I digress. If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen that I was...

Chocolate Granola Bark

If you make a candy out of chocolate and granola that means it’s healthy, right? I’ve discovered a new love: Barre classes. Have you ever done them? It’s kind of like pilates but a lot of the class uses a ballet bar. Guess what? It’s freaking amazing. I leave and I feel all glowy and stretchy...

Reese’s Pieces Cookies

Happy Saturday! I hope you’re having a good weekend. Weekends are better with cookies, don’t you think? Do you ever just get a total craving for something? Like, say, brownies? Or cake? Or maybe banana muffins? Or COOKIES? Unfortunately, I get these cravings all the time. Even though I’m constantly surrounded by a plethora of...

Cinnamon Sugar Blueberry Banana Bread

Well it would seem I’m on a cinnamon sugar kick. This time I’m adding it to Blueberry Banana Bread. Cinnamon sugar is always a good thing, don’t you think? Do you have a song? You know, one of those songs that just speaks to you? Or one that affects you so much that no matter...

Cinnamon Sugar Snack Mix

Cinnamon Sugar Snack Mix

One of my absolute weaknesses is a sweet and salty snack mix. This Cinnamon Sugar Snack Mix fit that bill. Seriously, am I the only one who can inhale snack mix like it’s going out of style? Put a bowl of sweet or salty mix in front of me and it’ll disappear faster than...

Dulce de Leche Revel Bars

Dulce de Leche Revel Bars

I just like saying dulce de leche. I feel like I sound so worldly instead of just saying “rich indulgent caramel” even though they’re pretty much the same thing. This time I put ducle de leche into Revel Bars. Good choice on my part. So when I edited these photos I realized these dulce de...

Happy Saturday! Are you all having a good weekend so far? I’m hosting a sleepover with Jordan and her 12 year old cousin. My earplugs and wine are at the ready. 1. March was a super busy month for us. Come to think of it, so were February and January. I think that’s just how...
