Mom's Brownies - Our Kind of Wonderful

Mom’s Brownies

These are the brownies I grew up with, that everyone always requested my mom to make. These are her version of my grandpa’s brownies. He used to keep brownie scraps in the freezer for us when we’d come to visit, and we’d eat them so fast. They were AMAZING. He’d also make a fresh batch […]

Banana Muffins with Cinnamon Frosting - Our Kind of Wonderful

Banana Muffins with Cinnamon Frosting

We are notorious for buying bananas, and wasting said bananas when they go bad too quickly. As is no surprise to anyone, that was about to happen again, but I told K no way, we were actually going to bake something, and freeze the rest. Man, are we glad we did! These banana muffins with […]

Cranberry and Pear Crumble - Our Kind of Wonderful

Cranberry and Pear Crumble

For Thanksgiving we were assigned a dessert, an as cranberries are a Thanksgiving food I decided I’d try to cook with them, as I never had before.  Granted, I didn’t really do much, just threw em in this after chopping them in my Ninja chopper, but I still felt good having crossed cranberries off my […]

Strawberry Shortcake - Our Kind of Wonderful

Strawberry Shortcake

I honestly have no idea if this is the “normal” way to have strawberry shortcake or not, but it’s how my parents always made it growing up, and I really feel like there can’t be a better way.   

Oreo Cake - Our Kind of Wonderful

Oreo Cake

K is a huge Oreo fan, so over his birthday week I surprised him with this Oreo dessert. It’s quite rich, so small pieces are more than enough, but it is so, so good! And, insanely easy to make, which is always a win.  

Mom’s Orange Julius - Our Kind of Wonderful

Mom’s Orange Julius

My mom would make us these orange julius smoothies growing up, and I always thought they were better than any we could buy at the mall. To this day I still they they are the best orange julius’ I’ve ever had. With how insanely hot it’s been this summer K and I (the dogs too…) […]

Buttermilk Cake - Our Kind of Wonderful

Buttermilk Cake

My sister sent me this recipe a couple years ago, and we loved it! Then, of course, we promptly forgot about it. I made it again last weekend, forgetting the baking powder and soda, and wondered why I’d love it so much before. I remade it again, the right way, the next day, and yup, […]

Hocus Pocus S'mores Pops - Our Kind of Wonderful

Hocus Pocus S’mores Pops

We’ve only been parents for a month and a half, and already I’m wanting to do more fun, “cutesy” things so A will have fun holiday memories as she grows up. I know, I know, no way will she remember anything for a while, but, I couldn’t help it and we did some neighbor treats […]
