Holiday-Easter

one bowl coconut cake

I already have a lot of coconut cake recipes on my blog, but this one is so delicious and easy that I had to share it with you. It’s super moist, and vegan! Yay! The entire cake was demolished in a day. Everyone loved it. This is going to be my new “go to” coconut…

deviled mini potatoes

These little, stuffed, deviled, baby potatoes are so delicious they melt in your mouth. They’re an amazing vegan alternative to, well, eggs. Besides being vegan, they’re great for people who have a sensitivity or allergy to eggs. And I know I just made the vegans happy because now you have a reason to use your…

empty tomb easter rolls

Empty tomb rolls, also called resurrection rolls, are a fun way to teach children the story of Jesus’ burial and resurrection at Easter time. Throughout the baking process the marshmallow that is placed in the center of the roll disappears, leaving the roll like an empty tomb. Pretty neat, huh? Simplify the Easter story for…

cheesy corn biscuits {vegan}

We love some sort of bread or biscuits with our soups, stews, and chilis. Biscuits are probably our first choice because they’re so versatile and easy to prepare. You can whip up a batch in no time, and choose a flavor that will perfectly accompany whatever you are eating. We had these with chili and…

celebrations ~ a scenes post

Over the last few months I’ve gone through a sort of renewal in my personal life that’s hard to explain. Like I’m waking up. Without getting to philosophical (and weird) I guess I’ll just say that it all started when I gave up meat. I swear I won’t get “preachy” about how much this has…

kenny rogers mayonnaise carrot cake

My favorite recipe for carrot cake can be found in a little cookbook called “Cooking With Kenny Rogers.” It’s a collection of yummy recipes featuring Dole pineapple. Dole and Kenny collaborated to make this fun cookbook, and every recipe I’ve tried so far has been delicious! This cake is amazingly rich, moist, and delicious. It’s…

grandma’s extra cheesy au gratin potatoes

Who doesn’t love some extra cheesy, ooey gooey, au gratin potatoes from time to time? They’re delicious with almost everything, and an absolute must when you’re serving ham! I made these again this Easter. This recipe is tried and true, easy, and perfect! The BEST au gratin potatoes EVER! ~ preheat oven to 350 degrees…

This is a wonderfully easy, moist and delicious cake! I made this instead of coconut cake this year for our Easter celebration and everyone loved it! for the cake: ~ preheat oven to 350 degrees F. ~ 1 (15 to 18 oz.) boxed pineapple cake mix (I used Pillsbury) 1 (3.4 oz.) box of instant…

chinese buffet coconut buns

About once every few weeks we visit our local Chinese buffet for lunch or dinner. I usually get the same things. Orange chicken or sesame chicken salad, the garlic green beans, cellophane noodles, crab rangoon or an egg roll, and a coconut-filled bun for dessert. Really, the buns are more like donuts. They’re so wonderful…

marshmallow mermaid pie

Ever since the first time I saw the movie Waitress I’ve wanted to make this pretty, dreamy, Marshmallow Mermaid Pie. It’s so sweet and colorful, but honestly, I fell in love with the name. Here’s my interpretation of the pie that Jenna presents to her doctor. It’s actually very easy to prepare, and would make…
