Brown Butter Dulce de Leche Milk Chocolate Drizzled Crisp Rice Treats

Say that title three times fast! Or don’t, you’re going to want to go make these anyway. The first thing you’ll need is some dulce de leche, a spoon-able caramel delight with a texture almost like a firm pudding. It can be found in stores, but you can just as easily make it with a glass jar, some condensed milk, and a crockpot. I made the jar above by filling…

Pumpkin Sugar Cookie Dough & a “Frankenstein” Inspired Decorating Tutorial {Video}

So the other day, I was bored procrastinating, and I decided to google pumpkin sugar cookies. I found dozens upon dozens of pumpkin shaped sugar cookies, and a handful of pumpkin spice cookies with assorted frostings, but not a pumpkin sugar cookie you could cut to hold its shape. I was surprised too. So I decided to fix that, and tweak my own sugar cookie recipe beyond recognition so it couldn’t…

THE Candied Jalapeno Bacon Viogner Cupcakes

I’m pretty sure the first words some of you uttered to yourself upon seeing the title of this post were “It’s about time!”. Thank you for being patient through the move, settling to a reasonable degree, and the time it takes me to measure out the “by sight and non-standard measurement” ingredients typical of most “Goodie Godmother Bakery Vault” recipes. I have shared at least one other “Vault” recipe with you…

Jalapeno Viogner Curd

It’s part deux of trois for my famous Candied Jalapeno Bacon Viogner Cupcakes! I was originally planning on sharing the curd, cupcake, and frosting in a single post, but when I saw how long the post was getting, I decided to break it up. The cupcakes and frosting will go live tomorrow. If you haven’t made your candied jalapenos yet, 1. What are you waiting for? and 2. If you…

Scary Good Bourbon-Spiked Cream Cheese Pumpkin Roll

The Godfather says I’m in “white girl in yoga pants” mode with all the pumpkin recipes recently, but I don’t exactly see him complaining. All I’m going to say is that it wasn’t me who ordered the pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks the other day. I do love pumpkin recipes though! Today I want to share a classic pumpkin recipe with a super cute Halloween twist. Pumpkin rolls used to intimidate me…

Mango Mojito “Ice Cream” – Paleo, Dairy Free, Clean Eating Cuban Style

Once upon a time, the Godmother weighed over 200 pounds. I was entering my second year at the University, had just gotten out of an awful emotionally abusive relationship with that “what in the world was I thinking” person many of us date at one point in our lives, and somewhere along the way I chose to try and deal with recovery by not paying attention to what I was eating.…

Decadent Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

Decadent crusting chocolate buttercream frosting recipe made with REAL chocolate.

Yellow cake with chocolate frosting. A simple request from my baby sister and brother-in-law for a little joint birthday cake I wanted to make for their visit last weekend. Her birthday was in March, but we were in California at the time, and his is this week (Happy Birthday D!). At first, I’ll admit I was hoping for something else – maybe strawberry, red velvet, lemon, maple bacon, cardamom –…

Honey Peanut Butter Oat Bars (No-Bake Recipe)

We found a place to live! It’s quaint, near the Godfather’s office, and has a lot of Pinterest “renter decorating” potential. I’m just excited to have a kitchen again so I can work on the blog! I have jalapenos to candy, crock pots to fill, holidays to prep for, and a list of delicious recipes over three pages long that all need to go up right now. Well, not right…

Coconut Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

It’s good in life to appreciate the simple, the small, the nostalgic. For me, there’s always a bit of a personal “return to simplicity” that happens with every move. We aren’t the best when it comes to “Spring Cleaning”, so we are thankful the military life provides us the opportunity to purge every few years, and this summer is no different. Our home at Vandenberg had lots of kitchen storage…
