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!

Sweet and Spicy Pretzels

Sweet and Spicy Pretzels

A little bit sweet and a little bit spicy, these Sweet & Spicy Pretzels are the perfect snack or party food! Things I didn’t know until last week: My backyard hose has a leak. A pool should take 12-24 hours to fill. Running water for over 24 hours will either (a) drive you insane...

Red Velvet Blondies

Red Velvet Blondies

Would you call them red velvet blondies or red velvet brownies? I’m calling them blondies because (1) they’re not brownies, these are brownies and (2) I used my blondie base. It’s settled: they’re red velvet blondies. Last week Jordan was home sick for a few days. This made me appreciate several things: 1. Zicam....

Skinny Cheesecake Dip {low-Fat or low-Sugar options}

For when you want cheesecake and your skinny jeans: Skinny Cheesecake Dip. You can make it low-sugar or low-fat, but either way you’ll be happy you’re eating cheesecake with less guilt. You guys.

Easy Double Fudge Brownies with the most amazing frosting ever.

These easy double fudge brownies were my undoing. I could not resist them at all! Want to know what else undid me last week? Having to spend $200 on new curtains for my living room. We got new neighbors in November. I don’t know where they moved from, but I’m betting it was somewhere...

Gluten Free Monster Cookies

Gluten Free Monster Cookies

I was going to say these don’t taste gluten-free but then I stopped and thought, what does that even mean? These Gluten Free Monster Cookies just taste like peanut butter monster cookies. The end. Kidding. That wasn’t the end. You didn’t really think it would be, did you? #Italktoomuch #allthetime {Really, I do. You...
