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!

Red Velvet Fruit Pizza

May 21, 2015
Red Velvet Fruit Pizza

I think red, white, and blue is my favorite color combination. Especially when it comes to food! Last week Jordan had to square dance with a BOY at her school’s open house night. It was a huge deal, and I mean, it should be. Boys are totally gross! (According to her, anyway.) It’s a 4th...

Blackberry Key Lime Tarts

Blackberry Key Lime Tarts

Blackberry + Key Lime is a wonderful combination. I vote we make it the next big thing. Move over lemon raspberry, blackberry key lime is coming to town. Last week, thanks to Pepperidge Farm, I was introduced to these delightful puff pastry cups. Aren’t they cute? More on those in a minute. First I...

Chocolate Toffee Almond Shortbread Bars

Chocolate Toffee Almond Shortbread Bars

That name is a mouthful, isn’t it? So are these shortbread bars: they’re gooey, rich, and full of chocolate, toffee, and almonds! How much screen time do you allow your kids? I’m asking for a friend. (Kidding, I’m asking for me, because my babysitter is a Chromebook.) Personally I don’t think it matters how...

Strawberry Pretzel Salad Dip

Strawberry Pretzel Salad Dip

Hey, the original recipe actually calls itself a salad, so I’m just going with the flow. I turned Strawberry Pretzel Salad into an easy, fast, and delicious DIP recipe! Somehow we entered a time warp back in January and when we stepped out it was mid-May. I’m not quite sure how that happened but...

Lemon Crumb Muffins

Lemon Crumb Muffins

Perfect soft and crumbly Lemon Crumb Muffins; just like from bakery but at home! While I acknowledge that my job is pretty easy in the whole realm of jobs (I’m not saving lives, protecting people, or putting out fires), it can be pretty stressful. I’m a full time blogger and a stay-at-home mom so there...

Funfetti Cake Batter Wedding Cookies

May 10, 2015
Funfetti Cake Batter Wedding Cookies

This cookie has a major identity crisis. Is it an Italian or Mexican Wedding Cookie? Is it a Russian Tea Cake? A snowball? Is it cake batter? Is it funfetti? You guys. It’s ALL of those things! Happy Mother’s Day! I want to wish my mom a very Happy Mother’s Day today. I can’t...

Red Velvet Gooey Bars

Red Velvet Gooey Bars

I’m all about the gooey bars. I cannot believe it’s been so long since I shared a recipe for one with you! Raise your hand if you love red velvet. (This is where I need one of those arm-raised emoticons on my keyboard. Why do they not have that option? If I can make...

Midori Martini

Midori Martini

A Midori Martini: the prettiest drink in all the land. This recipe is 15 years in the making, seriously. When Mel and I were first dating (15 years ago*) we went to Carmel on vacation. It quickly became our favorite getaway spot (until the time a glass of OJ cost $7 and we said...

Overnight Apple Pie French Toast Casserole

May 5, 2015
Overnight Apple Pie French Toast Casserole

French toast normally takes a lot of time to make. Stand at the stove. Dip. Cook. Flip. Repeat. When you make an Overnight Apple Pie French Toast Casserole it’s way easier. Dump. Bake. Eat! The other day Mel told me the voice on his phone was now a man. He hadn’t done anything to the...

Oatmeal Scotchie Brookies

Oatmeal Scotchie Brookies

Can you believe it’s been over a month since I posted a brownie recipe? I apologize. Maybe I can make it up to you with these Oatmeal Scotchie Brookies: brownies topped with oatmeal scotchie cookies? Yes? Okay before I tell you how I ate 3 trillionty of these brownies, let’s talk about Grey’s Anatomy....
